So started playing again this week, started with £100 and a fairly aggressive bankroll strategy as started with £5 aka 20 buyins then quickly moved upto £10 buyins at £150...this can be a recipe for disaster but as long as i run ok i find i can win quickly doing this strategy

mainly playing my beloved Omaha and also being a dirty shortstacker buying in for $15 and 6 tabling speed poker.

I have also purchased poker tracker 4 which seems a huge improvement and at long last you can have combined Omaha and Hold'em in one graph - tada!

so going well, £274 winnings plus £76 rakeback and im upto £450! will change upto £15 buyins for the forseeeable future, hopefully can continue upto £1k and back to regular £100 withdrawals like the good old days...

Couple of scores

Haven't got started on the poker yet and the £500 is sitting in my account waiting to be deposited, however i have played a bit on the side.

First up i deposited £25 onto stars with the intention of getting into the Sunday Million which i have never played before and somehow got a ticket at the 2nd time of asking in a $1.65 rebuy - on Sunday itself i managed to get a stack fairly quickly and was at one point even in 11th place, as the night wore on i got more and more tired but managed to keep at it and eventually finished 208th for $880 - bit gutted with exit hand as i 3bet shoved my 12bbs stack with KK and got called by 99 rivering straight, if i hold there i deffo look at some kind of 4 figure cash - ah well maybe next time.

Second up is that as i work with my dad and run his office he always is getting me to play poker as well, on this occasion i was told to have a pop at a $10 rebuy on ipoker and came 3rd for $250 which is not bad.

at the moment im doing a $20 freezeout and a $2 rebuy whilst he is on a delivery, wish the ipoker daytime schedule was a bit better.

Need to transfer this all into my own games and get started on the quest to £2k...

and staked this time after going off the rails a bit.

i have been told omaha shallow tables and mtts should make up 98% of my play..

have opened accounts on Frogstars and 888 as well as playing on ipoker so should really have a good opportunity at some soft mtts.

plan is to let it ride to £2k, looking forward to the challenge.

Down just down

played like a retard over the weekend, the ending flurry being a $210 HU sit and go (hyper turbo obv)

i lost when i got in 1100 of my starting stack with J8 on a 567 board but the villains A7 held up.

i was drunken.

few days off, need to think of a plan, work out my goals etc, long way back to £500 unless i run hot, will have to drop down in stakes as my roll is roughly £150...

Close to a Live Adventure

so last night i had satted into a 80 euro freezeout with the top 5 players getting a 1300 euro package to the ipops live tournment held in Barcelona...despite two hours of late registration there was still a fat overlay with the packages worth 11k but the 85 entrants meant that only 6k was put into the pot.

Long story short i got onto the final table in good nick in about 3rd in chips, but i bled a few chips away and when we got to bubble time there was one redic chip leader with 200k, one person on 70k and 4 of us on 30-40k. what this then meant was that the chip leader was chucking his chips round and stealing every pot, it went on for about 3 orbits and there was even an all in and call, but the short stack's K7 hit quad kings against the chip leaders optimistic qj off suit.

Anyways the sad end to the tale is that eventually i defended a blind steal with KQ caught a king and ended up all against the obvious steal, but alas he actually had hid a set of fives and i was bubble boy. I then had the pleasure of all the players typing in see you in Barcelona etc which really was a kick in the balls.

In Better news im £116 up in two days since i "reset" my bankroll to £500. I'll withdraw £100 tomorrow and that will be the first withdrawal in my target for £3k.
