Not much play over Christmas but took a stab at another EPT Deauville qualifier on Poker770 on Boxing Day and won that so now got 3 Deauville Finals to play - first of them is on 29th Dec, with two more in January if that doesnt come off. The mainly French players on this site are more mental than most on iPoker, but pay you off big when you hit a flop hard so it can pay to play a higher percentage of marginal hands, but imperative not to be bleeding chips at too high a rate when you miss the flops, so lowball and get away cheap has been my tactic in these. Seems to have worked, hope it carries through into the finals.
Out for some long overdue socialising last night, so no play at all yesterday, and nothing to speak of tonight, logged onto Circus Poker (another iPoker skin) to register for the live £100 game at Stoke on 4th Jan. This is going to be a terrfific event as the casino is adding £2500 to the prize pool, with circuspoker.co.uk adding £25 for every player on the site who plays too.
Saw they were running a $10 satellite so had a quick pop at that but went out second last - trying to represent a flush when my opponent couldnt lay down a straight - and didnt bother to rebuy, just bought in direct, save faffing about. Played another couple of cheap freezeout MTTs with hundreds of runners and did no good, so just popped into a $20 Sit n Go and won that so finished up ahead on the night - leaving aside my buyin for the 4th of course :-)
Hands that entertained me recently...
