Saturday sees yours truely play day1a of the wsope main event. I feel very hungry for success this year, perhaps even more so than in previous years. It def feels like im at a crosroads in my poker career. As much as i can do the grinding day in day out with eyes closed, its not what i really want from poker.
Id love to travel the circuit more and play decent structured mtts, rather than the limited live shoots my roll allows right now. A nice win would allow this, and would def make the grind easier. Right now i would like to droan on and on about why, but i wont. I'll just get a result and do my droaning then.
If any1 fancies a piece of me@£100 per % in the main just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or just text me if u know my number. Ive got a small amount still available for those with good taste. :)

Played the 100+100 sat for the wsope 1k event yesterday. Possibly one of the worst run tournaments i've ever seen tbh. No clock, a relaxed ridic way of organising the max 1 rebuy or add on system and blinding lights...but i digress.
Managed to donk off my first 5k against rory liffey early on with 67 and mid pair on a flushing board, he binked his flush after the money went in, but tbh i was guilty of fps there(fancy play syndrome). After this setback i managed to grind my replenished 5k up to 15k before the folllowing hand occured.
UTG rocky type rss with 5k bk, loud donk flats with large stck, i repop with kk in the bb. UTG dwell folds jj or aq id say, donk peels. Flop j106, i bet somewhat a weak amount hoping to allude to possible fe for the donk, donk flats tho. Turn 9, i feel the value is in checking and snapping for a variety of reasons, this happens and he proudly turns over 108 for 9 outs. Bink the 8 comes and he fist pumps like he's won the world and informs me i played the hand wrong and he thus deserved it.
Was gulity afterwards of having one or two too many sherberts, but luckily binked a bit on the heads up machine, cheers eoin! Looks like i wont be playing this 1k event now, but its not the end of the world, i need to make sure i conserve all my energy for that 10k event in just over a week, now that would be a nice time to run good. Might even fist pump a victory myself...

This is what a certain mr cowell might classify as a weak attempt at keeping this blog going. Im just not in the mood for writing right now, tbh im not in the mood for much. The whole grind thing is getting me down a bit and making me qstn whether long term this lifestyle is what i really want. Again this is all probably results orientated as i haven't had a proper mtt result in so so long. Stts keep the wolves from the door but not the champers on ice, and boy do i like my booze :)
I just seem to run pretty bad late on in every mtt i play right now, but its probably partly down to losing concentration at crucial stages. With the wsope coming up i need to make sure my mind and body are ready for a huge live grind, cos im only interested in a ft repeat...and of crse a win this time. This all sounds a bit crazy, but it is 6am and ive just finished a long stt sesh-something which will drive the most sane insane.
The international this weekend has a juicy 10k added 1k tournie, ill pop along tmrw and see if i can sat into this value fest. Hopefully be updating on a nice win in a few days. Ok peeps im blogged out.
