This is my blog about playing poker for a living, and the trials and tribulations that comes along with that.

I was really looking forward to the Sundays with so many big events going on it was ridiculous. 3 big wcoop nl holdem events, all with 2nd chance events as well. Party poker had their monthly million as well as all the other regular Sunday majors having bloated prize pools due to wcoop. Unfortunately I bricked everything apart from a few min cashes, no final tables and not even close to a win, sigh. Not gonna complain given how I'm running at the moment, just hard when there are so many opportunities for a massive score on one day and you don't get a sniff at all, sigh. Had some stacks and good chances in a few of the later tournaments, the $100r and $200r on stars, as well as the $69 f/o on full tilt, but nothing materialised. Having the day off today as 4 full schedules on the bounce has taken it out of me, will be back on the grind tomorrow. I will leave you with the highlight of my day from yesterday when i played this hand vs shaundeeb in the $10k hi roller, :-)
