Happy New Year

Start off by Saying happy new year to anyone who reads this. 2007 has been a pretty good year for me poker wise, 2 decent live cashes at the start of the year in aussie millions and EPT dortmund. Both seats wear won online so showed a nice profit from the two tournaments. Still dissapointing to be a coinflip away from getting in contention for some lif changing $$, o well ill kepp dreaming.

Online has mainly been all about cash games for me, I have done really well except december on all sites. December has been a complete write off with it ending about down $50k. Not the ideal way to end the year but since the rest of the year that preceeded it was v.good i think id be a fool to complain too much.

I am 50/50 about going to the aussie millions again in January 08, the main factor in going is that I would only have to pay 50% of the buy in due to a deal I had with geeforce during a $1k super sat. After that nothing really planned until vegas where I hope to go out for the whole series and rent a house with a few poker friends and genereally have a blast.

My main goals for 2008 are to keep improving on my cash game play, and to make a final of a tournament with at least 1k sterling buy in. This might be a bit optomisitic as im unlikely to play any in the first half of the year but its still soemthing id like to do. Hopefully it will be one with a TV appearance as well for a brucey bonus.

Thats about all for now, Gl to everyone in 2008, have a great night tonight and see you on the other side

Bit of a lull

Not a lot been happening pokerwise really, after my last bad session during the nightmare macau trip I didnt play harldy any poker up until about 5 days ago. It was a mix of being ill, no solid internet conection and doing some touristy stuff in Hong Kong that prevented me from playing. Put in quite a few hours over the past 4-5 days and they have been very very frustrating. One session the other day, I ran into 8 sets in little over an hour playing on 3 tables. 1 time I had nothing, 3 times I had an overpair and 4 times 5 I had 2 pair, sigh.

Money wise i have just been treading water really, win 2 buy ins 1 session lose 2 the next. I feel like i am playing pretty well but my timing seems a bit off, hopefully that will come right soon and turn the break even sessions into winners. No idea if this will be my last post before xmas but if so Merry Christmas to all.
