Its April

Wow this year has gone fast, and judging by my results so far i've got no chance of matching my $2.5 million+ year that i had last year, though i had a month off so it makes it even harder. Especially if i stick around the 25 50 and 50 100 level that i've been playing....

Obviously when i'm running good its all easy blah blah blah. My main problem is that i just don't have the patience anymore when i play these stakes. There isn't too much pain when i lose, and i don't give my opponents enough respect and try and beat them way too quickly, rather than wait for good spots. Probably playing my A game 30% of the time, then straight to D/E game oops.

Anyway i'm pretty excited about the next couple of months. I'm off to San Remo in a couple of weeks, then on to Monte Carlo for the EPT championship, then i'm going for my longest stint in Vegas for three weeks.

Next time i'll post some hands. I've got some fun 500bb pots, but i'm on my laptop so i'll have to search for them on my main computer.

You must have been on some sort of fantastic streak last year to do as well as you did. That's what happened to me and I was frustrated when I couldn't maintain it. When you're in the zone, winning comes so easily. When you're in a funk, the harder you try, the more difficult it seems to become.

Hey Ben,

I worked for Betfair at WSOPE couple of summer's ago. I spoke to you at the launch party for about 5-10 mins and I thought you were a gr8 bloke.

I remember you telling me about waking up one day hungover to see a good figure sum missing from your account and you didn't remember losing it drunk the night before!

Its so good to see you killing all the online PLO and I'm really happy for you. Maybe see you in vegas in summer?

Good Luck
