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

FTOPS over, Children in Need!
So, the ftops finally came to an end this past Sunday and it was a relief that this intense period of playing was over. Been shackled to the computer for 12+hrs a day for 2 weeks straight is not fun even when you are winning so when you are losing/breaking even its an absolute nightmare. The $2500 on Saturday was a shambles, I played pretty awful and was out very quickly, sigh. I made a semi deep run in the $100 rebuy omaha event but lost 2 big pots right after the bubble burst so ended up with not much more than a min cash. On to Sunday, pretty shitty day again, made a few deep runs early, notably 42nd in stars early $100r when it was $80k+ ftw and 20th in UB $100r when it was $24k ftw. Things were looking bleak as the session was winding down and then I got a stack in the $200 rebuy on stars and the UB $120 deepstack. I was mentally exhausted from the last 2 weeks poker and wasn't playing my A game by any stretch of the imagination and finished 9th in both, fml.
These last 2 final tables add another $200 the charity fund so no that its all done I will be donating $2534 to Children in Need. Obviously it is a little disappointing to get nowhere near as much as last time but I ran so golden last time, lol. I haven't played poker since Sunday, been catching up with friends and drinking. Also I got the new call of duty game, pretty awesome, xbox live ftw! I am heading down to London on Saturday for the gukpt grand final festival to defend my title, :-) Then straight from London I'm going to Prague for the EPT. Will probably take it easy after that up until Christmas and then the travelling starts again in the new year!
