New Blog finally

So I’m back, it’s been a while but with all the time and energy spent on my house there’s been little time for playing. I’ve been managing the build of my new house which should be ready by Christmas, and I can’t wait to get in there, it’s been a long 15 months. It’s meant that I actually took a prolonged period off over the summer months. I’ve started on a new venture with I’m going to be lead trainer and ambassador for the site, helping them with every aspect of the staking business.

We’re looking for players all the time so make sure you sign up if you’re interested in a stake. One of the perks is that you may get me as a mentor.

Also been back at the tables for just over 2 weeks now and it’s been going well. I’ve been mainly playing iPoker and there’s been some big games running. This is my graph since I’ve been back, small heater…

Even better news is that I’ve managed to get some money onto Stars seeing as the games have been so good lately. It’s weird, I’ve never played much on there and Stars always made it so hard for me to deposit on there but I’m planning on making a run at it, and plan to take on Blom in the Isildur Challenge within the next couple of months if I can play PLO only. We had some epic run-ins on iPoker if the rumours of his IDs are true before, so it should be a fun match. I’ll be playing a few WCOOP tourneys and putting in some decent volume at in the big PLO games before Christmas, so hopefully I can run good and win a chunk before the end of 2011.

I promise to keep this blog updated, also I’m now on Twitter so I’ll try to share some interesting hands and situations with you as they arise.

Also, another thread has come up on 2+2, with some people challenging the validity of my lifetime results at PLO. Its just become boring now, so i've issued the following bet.

Terms of the bet if anyone wants it:

- If i can't prove beyond doubt that i've won at least $5,000,000 I'll pay out $60,000
- If i can prove beyond doubt that i've won at least $5,000,000 I win only $30,000

To motivate me to get closer to the $8 million in winnings, i'd like a bonus of $20,000 for each addition million proved.

So if i prove $5,100,000 for example i win $30,000. I win $50,000 if i prove between $6,000,000 and $7,000,000 etc

Gl at the tables,

Had a quietish April on the poker front. I tilt self excluded from Full Tilt for 28 days after i had a chunky loss at the end of May, so have only been playing the Euro sites. It was a winning month but nothing exciting, i only played 7,000 hands so i need to put in more hands i guess.

It will be interesting to see how Black Friday affects the games. I think on the Euro sites the games will carry on and probably be even busier. I also think the games at $25/$50 and $50/$100 will be easier on the US sites, lots of the biggest winners in the last few years are Americans, so it may be an opportunity we shall see...... i'm sure most of them will move or find some other way of playing again.

Not long till the WSOP kicks off as well. I'll be donating my usual buy ins to 4/5 PLO events i think, only planning a two week visit in the middle.....

Strangely Tilted

Was waiting for my heater to end before i posted again.... it was due.
Played really bad in the last 3-5 days and dropped around $100k. Not sure why i let it bother me when i lose at poker, but i still feel mega tilted every time it happens. I should just take it in my stride after doing this for so long.

Anyway, i tilt self excluded from Full Tilt for a week. The site generally tilts me anyway. Every time i look at the 25/50 PLO list its the same names who sit out. I think like at least 15 of them have never even played a hand against me. I've never sat out to any player on any site.... only short stacks and button limpers.

My graph since the last one. I was winning almost every day until the recent downsing. I've played 36k ish hands so far this year which is more than normal.

Probably run bad after this

Poker has been going alot better this year, think i sorted my head out after my downswing last year.... and haven't tilted too much at all this year. I'm happy with my graph for the year so far, these things always say i run above EV. I doubt i can keep up the results of the last six weeks, but its fun while it lasts.

I haven't played any live tournaments for ages. Hopefully i'll make it to EPT San Remo and Madrid. If not, i'm definitely going to Vegas for about 18 days in the summer.

Jan Update

Not much happening on the poker front. I quickly went up $75k on the year, only to give the same amount back mostly to the same fish. I always beat the good players and lose to the fish (I know he is a big fish as all the nitty regulars play him)

I've been really busy working on choosing everything for my new house, its still not going to be done for another 8 months though. The refurb/extension is also costing double what i budgeted... FML

I'm also training to run the London marathon for Wellchild, only done a few weeks training, and i'm going to have to do some serious work to break the four hour mark.
