Went deep in the Stars $3r last night, got the the final 3/9 and managed to come 2nd for $2.4K.
I thought about folding, but grew some sack for once
I wasnt too happy though, as the opponent i drew heads up for the guy id've picked to play from 18 left.
Set up so hard beeyotch
Then he trapped me himself:
I managed to get out a line i've been wanting to say for a while now. When some kid proposed a deal. I shot back with ''No deals bitches'' so was happy to get it out finally. Speaking of the chatbox, must give a big shout out to messr's Horneris and ChipRich, whom both recieved 1 month chatbans on Stars for their abusive rail comments directed at anyone who won a pot off me. Horneris managed to lose his with 16 left, and ChipRich managed to rail some final table action, losing his with around 8 left.
If i had won, i was going to take a week off from poker and just kick back doing nothing. But that would've probably been a bad idea anyway as i'm finally coming into some form. Maybe the pokergods have something bigger in store for me?!
I'l be jetting off to Ireland on the first for the APAT Dublin event, this should be great fun with the characters that are Linux, Kinboshi, Colchester Kev etc.
Check this out: JimStringer there are some pic's of myself, Horneris and ChipRich after an all day drinkathon then hitting some casino action.
Note: I have updated my 'blogs' section, take a glance at a few, you'll find some entertaining reads.

I have cleared 450 FPP's of the 2250 required to clear my $150 bonus on stars. Will try play 100 sng's tomorrow when i can be arsed.

The event consisted of 10 teams with 8 players playing an 8 table shootout (1 team member per table) with the top 2 getting through to the final 16. And points were allocated dependant on the positions people busted.

10 billionth hand promotion
I have shipped another $600 onto stars as they are doing a reload bonus of 25% up to $150, i should be able to grind the $6's and clear that in about a day or two.
Edit: It should take 2/3 days as it is only the base FPP rate that counts towards clearing the bonus. I will be getting 6 points per $6.50 sng so will have to play 375 to clear the $150 bonus.
In other news, i ran good simultaneously in the $5r and $10r on Stars and iPoker, but only cashed for $260 total coming 7th and 12th. Could've been a lot more. TY to sledge/horneris and chiprich for the rail. A good payoff s coming soon, i know it.

Wow, that was nearly so so sick. Then it all came through in the blonde $2K gtd. 3rd for $400, i blew up pretty badly though with 3 left.
Seat 1 - 6K
Seat 2 - 22K
Me - 32K
Seat 1 folds,
Seat 2 raises to 2400
I push all in w/ AQo
He calls with AKo
Hmm, slight cooler i suppose. But i played like a tool on the bubble (weak passive) As i was so desperate to make the cash in this one.
So the mtt day wasnt a total failure, i lost nearly $70, so will now play with the remaining $380 of remaining sng profit.

Pretty happy with the above graph and am pretty comfortable 8 tabling the sng's, when i 13 table im usually too slow and miss a few hands. Got tempted to play a few mtt's last night and ended up losing $80 total, because of my trigger happy play in $5r and $10r costing me a few $.
On the live news i have a few things coming up:
Grosvenor Stoke team event - This should be a great laugh, will be driving down with Horneris, ChipRich and Sledge13 to meet Kinboshi and a few others down there for a fun afternoon.
Note: We need another player for this, so if your available this saturday to be in Stoke for 4pm let me know
Moortown Masters - Dave at Grosvenor Moortown has sorted a nicely structured £50 FO (10K stack with 25/50 starting level) Which should be a good tourny and there are a lot of blondes going, so should be a good laugh.
APAT Dublin - Finally got off my arse to sort out going to one of these after Kinboshi non-stop raving about it. Horneris didnt get in, but i am still going with my faithful railbird Linux. Booked the plane tickets, the Hotel and the seat. Very efficient. I leave on the 1st June and return on the 4th for the excellently structured £75 FO.
I'll be hitting some more low buy in mtt's this week, as well as trying to hit a decent number of sng's so i dont lose too badly!

The stipulations for the bet were as follows:
''The tournaments must all start between 00.00 on 1st May, and 23:59 on 14th May (pokerstars time, so that's 5am on Tuesday 1st May, and 4:59am on Tuesday 15th
May our time)No tournaments below the $3+$0.40 level to be played.No-one but us to use our accounts obv.''
So, leaning on the cautious side, and only have $500 or so in my stars account at the moment, i decided to go for the $3.40 10 seater balls. I varied between 8-13 tabling them on my 2 monitor set up. And the results were very positive. I played 188 of them, the most i have ever played in one day by a long way. And i turned a $183 profit (28.6% ROI). I am eager to see what my ROI is like after a more long term number (1000-2000) have been played. I'm hoping i can maintain a 20% ROI while 8 tabling.
