Party In The Park


Fortunate as I am to be able to play poker for a living, new experiences are never all that far away but last weekends RAM Records gig at Ewer St. Car Park in London was definitely one to remember! Had a great team for the night with friends making the trip from Sheffield, Essex, Cambridge, Hull and Bristol to get involved and was well worth the journey!

Aside from the aforementioned jaunt its been mainly just spending time with family for birthdays and with my girlfriend for the last couple of weeks. Usually when I'm staying at home for a bit I play a ton of poker and have tended to do really well. I'm definitely more focused in an almost completely distraction-free environment and since I'm not in contact with many people from my old schools I have no shortage of time on my hands. This time though I actually spent a bit more time with family and less time in front of my laptop so volume wasn't quite as I would have expected. I had a vague goal of playing 40-50 hours and booking somewhere in the region of a 50 buyin winning trip home.

I didn't quite make the volume goals with 33 hours played but my February rungood has followed through into March and I managed to book a 45 buyin win running a few percentage points above EV so I'll definitely take that!

For now its back to Beverley for a couple of weeks of grinding and mourning the loss of DnB gigs. Nothing lined up 'till Brixton in late May since a family wedding in Scotland has fallen on the weekend of (a) the biggest night out of the year so far - a Hospital Records night in Leeds and (b) The £1k Monte Carlo tournamnet at DTD which would have been a great chance to catch up with a ton of people that I haven't seen for a while since I had to take a break from the live tournament circuit grindings late last year.

Some very interesting news appeared last week regarding the ISPT (International Stadiums Poker Tour) with the announcement that DTD were getting behind it, guaranteeing 1st place a €1m and putting on a huge satellite structure. Now that the event actually has some legitimacy behind it in stark contrast to the shambles that it looked a lock to turn into a few weeks ago, I'm definitely going to be grinding the satellite structure pretty hard and hopefully be making a run at Wembley when Day 2 of the event kicks off there at the end of May.

The PokerBet book is still open at Titan to back The Firm players at GUKPT Didsbury in 3 weeks time. The field is looking like being reasonably small in comparison to most live £500 events in the UK these days so if you want to back me or any other Team Titan player and get £35 in free bets with Titan for creating an account, check out the link with all the details here:
