WSOPE bleh

WSOPE was a wipeout... in the HA i lost two flips, in the Omaha i lost a chunk to Dave Shallow in a pretty standard hand, and tilted off the rest. In the main event, i thought i played pretty good, my biggest pot i won was calling a 9k river bet with Ac6c on a 9cKc2s4dKd board, and it was good. I lost with KK three times, and then flipped for a decent stack against Jason Mercier with JJ v AK and busted. I ran good in % swaps and buys so recouped my £17500 outlay.

I'm playing EPT London on Saturday and may play some live cash. I haven't played so much online because i've been tilting like a monkey when i've played, so its best to have a bit of time off. I normally have two bad months a year so hopefuly January and September are the lot for the year :-)

Cool its almost time for some decent tourneys in London... i'm playing the £2.5k HA, £5k PLO and the £10k NL main event. I haven't played a tourney since Vegas so looking forward to it. I was going to play some of the WCOOP's but the structure is too slow and boring. The $2k Omaha you start with 10k chips and blind 10/20 and a 30 minute clock... complete snooze fest. 500bb deep in Omaha, there is no need.... plus the timing means it all nighters in the UK.

Online has just been like usual. Daily $50k swings... hopefully the action will pick up in the next few months. I'm going to have a couple of weeks off to chill while the WSOPE and EPTs are on. No point in playing a £2500 event after i've been up all night and lost £50k.
