Feb Results

The sit and go's are going well right now, after a cold run last week, yesterday and today have been very nice days to round off February nicely.

Feb stats are:
Played: 167
Profit: $688.50
ROI: 15.27%

These are $25 turbos on stars. It leaves the overall stats since 01/01/06 like this:

Played: 256
Profit: $1390.50
ROI: 20.12%

A bit more than I expected but the results are still fairly irrelevant until i've done 500. I've been doing quite nicely in satellites as well, last week I qualified 3 times for the Stars biggie, one of which I used for $530, and the other 2 which I got money for. Profited about $800 from them and freerolling in the comp itself. Also won a Monte Carlo satellite (not the big one) for $650 but as I decided not to play the satellite, i've got $650 in W$ which can only be used to enter satellite events. Of course Stars have absolutely no satellites at the moment so they are fairly worthless right now. The next satellites they start are WSOP ones and i'm still well under age to even try for that. I will probably wait for the EPT to start again, or the Caribbean adventure.

I'm considering going to Warwick University this weekend to play in the £40 competition they are having there. It has $3000 added and it will mostly be students so it looks like it could be huge value. It's a 2.5 hour drive though and the competition is 2 days which is pretty long for a small buyin event, they could easily get it over with in one day. Still my parents are going up there anyway to see my sister who is at uni there so chances are i'll go up a day or two early to play the comp.

Arsenal beat Real Madrid, and although Wigan probably could have beaten them the way they played it feels good. Still can't beat Blackburn though obviously. I've got my ticket for the return leg lined up so hopefully we can pull through then inevitably draw Barcelona in the next round.

No news...

I've been having a pretty bad run on the sit and go's last 2 days. Just sticking to the $25 and taking the downswing at the moment. Just playing through it and waiting for the upswing again. It's the kind of thing you have to expect playing them though.

I decided to quit uni the other day, it wasn't really any fun and I found myself at Gutshot more than lectures so i'm at home a lot now. This means it is mostly internet poker I am playing as well. I do miss live poker but my results are a lot better online so I guess it's a blessing in disguise.

There's a couple of events I really want to go to in the future. First one is Aruba with Ultimate Bet. I made it through to one of the $300 qualifiers but I played pretty badly and dropped out around 40th. I am guessing the satellites are going to be bigger nearer the time of the event with more people wanting to go so I think I will try again nearer the time. The other one is the PCA with PokerStars again in January. I had so much fun this time that i'm already planning to go to next years! It really is a class event with great people and lots of poker and fun.

I'm going to stick a couple more links up on the side, firstly Poker 4 Charity and secondly Matthew Milne's blog. I've taken down the Imperial Poker Society link as well (seeing as i've left).

I will try and update more often but there isn't a lot to write about at the moment. I'm still saving up FPP's for a monitor and Arsenal are still doing shite.

Till next time
