Poker Stars Tourny

Texas Holdem Poker

I have registered to play in the PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker!

This Online Poker Tournament is a No Limit Texas Holdem event exclusive to Bloggers.

Registration code: 9888552


Cash bang wallop...

May's stats are +$249 for a YTD of +$649...looking at my stats I lost $620 in 4 cash sessions during the month so that $649 could've been so much better.

So I have set myself a little challenge for June. SNGs and Tournies and NO MORE LIMIT CASH. If you see me at a limit cash table give me more abuse than normal :-)

Bounties taste nice.

Succumbed to the temptation to play NLHE last night. 2 $10 +$1 tournies, one on Blondepoker the other the "Tikay" tourny on

Busted pretty early on Blonde when My TT failed to win a race with...erm..A6o. Yes people do move all in on you after you raise in MP with TT with Ace rag. Of course the A hits on the river.

Sporting odds was a different kettle of fish. $1000 added and $100 bounty on "Tikay" which I won with 85o in a 5 way coup :-)

I ended up 3rd for $253 plus the $100 bounty so that makes my YTD figures look a bit healthier.

Maybe Limit cash games should go on the burner for a bit and MTTs and STTs given a try.

40 days until Vegas...

Vegas dreams

Still over 6 weeks 'til I fly out and online seems to be kicking me hard in the balls. Amazingly I am still up overall and slightly up for May, despite donking off $330 at 2/4 limit ffs last weekend. Now I remember why I had decided not to play at weekends. If I hadn't I'd be up $500 ish this month, instead I'm scaping around $40 which even with the 10 hours or less per week I'm playing is still godawful.

Ironically I still haven't got back into tourny or SNG mode yet when I am over in Vegas NLHE tournies will be my daily fix of poker, with the occasional O8 foray. Need to get some practice in.

Despite Stars having the best site I am still struggling to get my head above water whilst Party is shit in so many ways but a consistent earner, irony there somewhere.

Long weekend ahead, off work until Wednesday, though I will mostly be chilling out catching up with DVDs rather than being glued to a mouse playing poker (Or so I hope) :-)

WSOP (Sorta) here I come

Booked another trip to Las Vegas.

9 July to 20 July, staying on the strip this time at the Alladin.

Not got a bankroll for the WSOP events, so unless I run well or get in via a satellite it will be the usual low buy in stuff in my trip.

If I do run well then the $3000 Limit O8 on 15 July or the $1.5K PLO on 17 July appeal. As well as WSOP there is a festival at the Orleans so I might try the $540 Limit O8 there on the 14 July.

Can't wait 'til I'm there :-)

The internet year so far

Gruesome, these are the accumalative figures

January +$320
February +$175
March +$72
April +$400

So, April has seen me hopefully turn the corner but $100 a month for around 7 hours per week is a bit puny.

I had a bizarre O8 session yesterday after crashing out of 2 SNGs on the bubble I sat in a $3/$6 game with $200. 9 hands later I had seen 9 flops! won 7 hands scooped 5 of them 3/4rd 1 and chopped 1 and had $420 in front of me. I then lost a pot to a gutshot with the low and trips and left soon after +$185 which accounts for much of my +$400 for 2006.

I am bankrolled for 5/10 but I seem stuck in a 2/4 3/6 mindset.

The plan for May is more SNGs. If derek (OldKingCole) can mash up the $30 turbo PLO8s I must have a chance :-)
