Well EPT budapest was very short and not so sweet. Busted with AA v a donks AQ on a JKA3 board when the T fell on the river. He did very well getting 100bb in on the flop and turn.....

Wasn't so tilted as usual probably because it was a cheaper buy in than most EPT events, and what else can i do other than get it in as a 91% favourite.

The hotel i stayed in the Four Seasons Gresham Palace is stunning, and i'd recommend it to anyone for a few days break...

I'm off to Budapest tomorrow for an EPT event. Its the first one to be held in Budapest, and i'm sticking to my rule to only travel to cities to play poker that i really like. The only other tournaments i have planned for the rest of 2008 are the GUKPT final and EPT Prague.

Things have been going well in October so far. I'm up around $250k at 25/50 and 50/100. I don't even think i've played 200/400 this month. Got bored of running bad every time i took a shot. The games are also playing bigger because of the pound crashing against the dollar.

I decided to treat myself to a decent car as well. I bought a Daytona Grey Audi R8. Definitely my best ever purchase :-)

I recovered from my slight downswing i had in August and September. Kind of a bit bored of playing right now. There are quite a few reasons why i've been playing bad lately. After winning so much in June and July, its been really tough to focus on beating my usual games. I've also run really bad at 200/400 in the last month or so. I've lost like the last ten shots i've taken at about $20,000 a time.

Alot of the time i'm just trying to tear apart any player i face at 25/50 and 50/100. I've been making more bad plays than ever. When i was far more focused earlier in the year, i didn't mind playing someone for ages, if it increased the possibility of me beating them. Recently i'm trying to crush people in no time at all, even when i know i'm picking bad spots to play big pots.

Going to have some decent time off poker in Dec/Jan and Feb to party, go to Australia and then skiing!

I'll try and some interesting hands and post them in my next entry!

Well i busted late on Day 2. I never once doubled up in the whole tournament, and it was a real grind. I really was card extinct on Day 2, i think i had just one situation where i bet, and actually wanted a caller. I eventually busted shoving the button after i'd squeezed an Ace and only had about 10 big blinds, and lost to AK.

I also, missed the EPT London and High Roller Showdown too because of a wedding! Think i have only on tournament left that i'm going to play this year, EPT Prague.

Had sickest 20 minutes last time i played online. I had 11 all in showdown pots, and lost all 11. I wander what the odds were, don't think thats ever happened to me before. TILT.
