Long overdue an update but its been a busy last couple of weeks. Went over to Edinburgh last weekend for the 7th leg of the UKIPT hungry for my 3rd cash of the tour to keep me in contention for the leaderboard which I was lieing 5th in before the event. No joy unfortunately and I busted 30 minutes from the end of Day 1b when my JJ was no good against AK. Hadnt got much of a stack to be fair so cant really complain. Wasnt too happy with how I played in the tournament overall either so that was dissapointing. No side events interested me over there so I enjoyed Edinburgh for the rest of my stay with a few good nights out on the lash.
Online has continued to go very very well and I ended my recent bad run at the Step 6/Gs. Played 11 of them in total since my last blog. Seven step 6s and four step Gs. Managed to win six of them and cash in another two which was very nice. As I mentioned in my last blog I had planned on playing EPT Villamoura even if I didnt manage to win a package. But I was obviously determined to try my best to win one cos it breaks my heart handing over so much money to play in a poker tournament. I only played three step Gs in total for Villamoura because they simply dont fill very often unfortunately. Anyway I finished nowhere in one, 3rd in another for €3,300 and won the other one. Played a step G tonight for EPT London which Im also playing and won that too which was sweet. Nice to have the package wrapped up so eary and especially when its a big package! (just under €10k). The seven step 6s I played were all for a WCOOP main event seat ($5,200) Won four of them, cashed in another for $1200 and unplaced in the other two. Meaning Im 21/52 in step 6/Gs for the year which is pretty sick.
Mtts have gone ok too with several deep runs but no big cashes unfortunately. Managed to win another two WCOOP seats in those 3x turbo sats keepin me well in profit for mtts.
Heading to Villamoura on Saturday and Im playing Sunday which is Day 1b, so Ill do an update at the end of the day with my chipstack. Good few Irsh seem to be heading over and Im really looking forward to it. Still looking for my first cash in an EPT so hopefully this can be the one!
In non poker news I made the biggest purchase of my life on Monday and bought myself an apartment which Im delighted with! Ok so its not exactly a balla pad, and wont be appearing on cribs anytime soon but its a real feeling of achievement to buy your own place and be living mortgage free at 24. Something to fall back on at least if poker ever does go pear shaped. Not sure when Ill be moving in but hoping to asap!
Bankroll obviously took a massive hit from this and so I cant think of a better time for me to have a big score! Roll on Villamoura...................... : )
