With virtually no poker on in Ireland for the next 2 weeks I had thought I would be enjoying a break from the tournament schedule until the WPT in January but got board last night and booked flights over to Nottingham to play the £250k gtd in Dusk till Dawn tomorrow. I also nearly booked flights to Holland to play some Winter Festival on the 28th but failed to pull the trigger at the last second.
To be perfectly honest there are two reasons for this, first I think there is value in these small buy in tournaments with big guarantee’s because of the amount of guys who get in for £50 in the satellites that have been running for three months and second I actually drink less when away and since my little liver scare this year I’ve managed to keep the sessions to a minimum. They are expecting 300+ players with a top prize in excess of £75k
I say minimum of course because that is the best that can be expected, the thoughts of never having another session is pretty miserable so hopefully it won’t come to that. In fact the lads are organising the “office” party for early next week, I’ll leave it to some of the more seasoned session bloggers to keep you informed on what went on, with some of Dublin 4’s finest mixed with the likes of multi I’m sure there will be a few good stories.
Gambling wise I’ve not been up to much lately, few bets here and there and I’m losing on them over all. Only highlight was on Wednesday when I got a phone call with a tip for a horse and for some reason I decided to back it, I often get 3 tips for horses in a day and never back them anymore. Anyway the little beauty won at 10/1!! Over Christmas I think Taylor is a great bet for the Darts at anything close to evens. The man is a legend even if I can’t stand to listen to him talking. Also think that Man City will walk the PL and again anything close to evens is a super price.
