Good steady week of grinding online since I got back from Alicante last Sunday. Actually was pretty dull until last night when I won a step 6 and came 2nd in the $100 1r1a turbo for $7.5k. So a nice $16k + day to cheer me up. Played 4 step 6s in total since my last update and won 1. So 15/32 for the year now which is sweet.
Played a live game on Thursday night in a new casino in Swords, which is the nearest casino to where I live now. It was there 1st monthly game and it was €230 + €20 so I decided to check it out. Only got 29 runners unfortuantely and I eventually finished 5th for my money back. Nice club though and I enjoyed the game.
Kinda sucks not being over at the WSOP at the minute as its obviously the main topic of conversation among poker players. I had big plans for the WSOP this year and planned on playing alot of events. For one reason or another and despite my bankroll bein healthier than its ever been Ill jus be going over for the main event so a bit pissed off about that but hey the WSOP will be there every year. Also I plan on playing at least 2 EPTs before the end of the calender year to make up for missing Vegas.
No big wins as of yet for the Irish in Vegas but today Nick Heather, better known as Salamander is lieing 4th in chips at the final table of a $1500 nlhe event. So the very best of luck to him. Nick recently won a mini ftops for $165k so obviously in good form and confidence will be high so great chance of scooping a bracelet. The Irish camps spirits seemed to be high heading over and this will do them no harm. Im sure Nick will have plenty of support and encouragement from the rest of the lads.
On 368k vpps for the year and still undecided about going for Elite. Gonna continue to grind hard over the next few weeks and just see how it goes. Next live event I have planned is the UKIPT in Killarney on the 24th of this month. I expect numbers to be affected for this as pretty much ever decent poker player (except me!!!) in the country will be over in Vegas. Thatll be my last live event beore heading to Vegas on the 3rd July for the main even. Got my tickets last week for UFC 116 Brock Lesnar v Shane Carwin and I actually cant wait for this! Im more excited about that than the WSOP if Im to be honest. Not sure if thats a good or bad thing..........
Intense and emotional in Vegas
