How did you get on, Rossco? I'm booked in for next Sunday, but might nip down this Sunday too if I'm bored.

EDIT: Yeah, I went on Sunday. Bubbled in the main tourney event. Gutted. It was massive chip leader vs me and another guy. Other guy pushes with Q5 against chip leader's A9. I'm dealing, and I put down a 9 on the flop, nothing to help the other guy ... until a Q on the river. Curse my dealing!

Couple of hands later, I push with AdQs against 99. Three spades on the flop, I have so many outs ... but nothing materialised. Oh well, I'll try again next Sunday.

I went back later and put 30 quid into a cash table. Doubled up early, then blew the lot. :(

Went home and won $120 online ... I should stick to teh internet pokerz.

EDIT AGAIN: So I played again this Sunday, and I MADE IT TO THE FINAL. Woo!

Finished in the top two on the first table. One really jammy hand where I was all in with JJ (hate 'em) against AQ ... ace on the flop, J on the turn! \o/

Second table of 8 players, was plain sailing till there were three players left. Another lucky hand where I was all in with trip sevens against a flopped straight, and paired the board to make a house ... that made me joint chip leader. Heads up I was all-in with AK against JT on a Jxx flop ... ace on the turn saw me to the final.

So yeah, a few lucky hands ... but then again, poker is largely luck, innit?

They've advertised the final as another two-stage affair, but it isn't turning out that way ... it's going to be a 40-player MTT (5 x :lol: with ten prizes. Not bad!
