Getting closer!

Another tourney,another cash.This time finishing 73rd out of 2000+ runners.I feel a big cash is just around the corner,and if I continue to make good decisions,as I am making just now,it must come sooner rather than later.
I also think I am gonna deposit some money in my account and try and play bigger buy-in tourneys (maybe $10 ones) because as getting in the cash is good,playing for 4hrs+,dodging umpteen bullets and then winning 10 bucks,you do sometimes think if it is all worth it? Anyway enough of my ramblings and thanks for reading.

So close.........but so far!

Hi and welcome.Yep,lady luck deserted me in the last tourney I played earlier today.Two crucial hands which I lost in both! The first one happened a couple of hours into the tourney when I was sitting 18th out of the 600 odd that were left in.I flopped top two pair on a board with 2 spades,when the only other guy in the hand pushed all in.I had him covered and just knew he was drawing to a flush,so I called and he showed the two spades,and yep,he hit his flush on the river.If I had won that hand I would of been in the top 3,but hey ho.
The second hand was when I was down to 10 BB's and woke up with AQ and shoved,to get called by 33.Flop came A,10,Q,turn was a 3 and river a blank,so I was out,but still feeling confident with my play.It's another cash and more funds towards a new laptop lol.
I have a week off work now so hopefully I can play a few more tourneys.Thanks for reading and good luck at the tables.

Chipping away

Well I am half way thru my 7 nightshifts,and have hardly played any poker.I did play a SnG this morning tho (click pic above to see how I got on)
The 1st final of the Caribbean Package that I mentioned in my last blog is tonight,and so far there are over 13,000 people entered to play in it,with only the winner taking his seat in the sunshine.So I think I can forget that dream, if those are the amount of runners that will play in each final lol.
My bankroll is still increasing nicely on Pokerstars,and I have set myself a goal.I want to have enough in my account to buy a new laptop.My present one is about 3 years old and has done well,but having this goal will give me something to focus on thru the long winter nights.

Get the suncream out lol

Hello again and welcome to my blog.I have been playing a little poker the last couple of weeks (with some success) and my bankroll is going the right way.I noticed on Pokerstars the Caribbean tournament they are hosting in January,and entered the 50c sattelite.90 runners and the top 9 qualify for the final (click pic above to see how I got on)
There are half a dozen or so finals,you just select what one you want to enter.The first one is this Sunday,but already has over 6000 entrants,with first place only winning a package to the Carribean! But to be fair to pokerstars,the top 2000 get in the money,so hopefully the bankroll will continue to increase.
I start a week of nightshifts tonight,so maybe will just play a few SnG's,but as long as I keep placing in them it's all good.

Hello,and welcome.It's good to be back in the land of the bloggers lol.I haven't posted for over a year,but I have still been playing online at Pokerstars,Full Tilt and now and again at Carbon.I still just play micro MTT/STT's,but am doing ok (click the pic above to see how I got on in an 18 player $1.50 tourney this morning)
I feel I am a slightly better player than I was a year ago and put this down to reading poker books and also reading some of the poker blogs that are out there. I still just use poker as a way to relax and am really enjoying it at the moment.Anyway enough of my ramblings and I hope to update here once a week or so.

It's summer time and the weather here in Scotland is ok.Even the poker is going not to bad! I am still playing these matrix 4 table tourneys on Full Tilt (click pic above) and am still enjoying them and turning in a small profit.The other places I play online are at Carbon Poker which I really like also (it's just a pity it isn't busier than it is),and Everest Poker which I like also.I think I am gonna stay with these 3 rooms and try and grind a profit at the SnG's.Gonna go out on my motorbike now and make the most of the sunshine.Take care all and thanks for reading.

4 tables at the same time

MANIC! Not the fact that I have posted now for 3 days on the trot (which is a first.) But these new matrix SNG tourneys on full tilt that I have stumbled across.Many of you will know that they are a STT,but you play the same 9 players on 4 different tables at the same time! Only ever playing 1 table at a time before this,I was intrigued and thought I would give it a go. It's mayhem haha,my head was spinning and you need 6 pairs of eyes but it is very enjoyable at the same time.I cashed in the first one I played (click the box above) and have cashed in every one I have played since.The bankroll is starting to rise slowly so I think I might stick with them for a bit.If you haven't played one before,give it a go,and if nothing else you can see if multi-tables are for you.Cheers and good luck.
