Many thanks to all of my backers...I'm now staked for the £500 Blackpool GUKPT Side Event (Rick Gilby style).

Let see if I can ship you all a nice profit on home turf. Even my missus has backed me so if I don't then it's life over anyway :-)

Just need to decide wether I take unpaid leave or throw a sickie (hopefully no one from work reads this).

I'm playing the £100 deepstack this Saturday at Blackpool G. I'm due a result in this comp and if I get a decent score I may be able to play some more GUKPT events. If anyone who reads this is there on Sat come and say hello.

It's going to be an interesting few months stake-wise as I have a little piece of Rick 'Doublebubble' Gilby in the BPool GUKPT m/e and also a slice of AWOP member 'Guite' in this Saturdays £100 D/S and a couple of comps he's playing out in Vegas. Just hope everyone stops dicking around and SHIIIIIPPPSSS me something (and I'll attempt to do the same).

Thanks again and laters

Live Donkament Stakeage

I'm looking for a stake to play the £500 side event at the Blackpool GUKPT in November.
I'm looking to sell 20 x £25 shares (I'll be retaining 4 myself so it's actually 16 for sale). The deal:

Double Stakeback - first £1000 of any winnings go to shareholders
60 / 40 profit split - After the stakeback above, all profits will be split 60/40 in favour of shareholders.
Reg fee - I'll pick up the £50 reg fee.

Cash Example:
I cash for £5k. - £1K straight back to shareholders = £50 per share
Of the remaining £4000 - 60% goes to shareholders = £2400
1 share of that = £120
+ 2x Stakeback (£50)= £170

So for a £5k cash each £25 share would net £170

Tourney info:

This is a 2-day event starting on 10/11/2009. Last year first prize was in excess of £23k.

Live history:

Not much to go on really, but that's why i'm looking at this stake for more experience. Played a GUKPT and 2 CMBPTs this year (1 last year) (Satellited into all of them). Pretty consistent at making day 2 and also cashed in 10th at Teeside CBMPT this year. It's all on this blog pretty much.

Play fairly regular in Blackpool and have made numerous FTs / cashes etc in small / mid range comps. Just to add, I'll be taking unpaid time off work to play this comp and will NOT be drinking so I will be fully focused.

If you are interested of have any questions, drop me a line


September Update

...Sorry for the lack of updates (like it matters), but I've seriously had nothing to update about...played loads of MTTs online but it's the usual shit and I'm not gonna go on about it. I need to get a roll together to play cash again as online tournies are gay and can fuck off (the picture is a clue to this outburst).

I didn't notice any of the comments on my 'Gone Tits' post cause I'm shit. Everyone who requested it - I've linked you back up. Even you Rubbish.

Going back a bit, the last big comp I played was the CBMPT in Nottingham. I made it right to the end of Day 1 but was short stacked most of the day and didn't manage to squeeze through. Had a piss easy starting table though with Rich ' Madasawasp' Whitmore, Sam Trickett and Mickey Wernick.
I actually owned Wernick in a few pots early doors! However, while I was busy thinking I was Billy Big Bollocks though he called my A high bluff on a paint filled board with 3rd pair and got a nice pot back. He then sucked out on me when he had raised with K3 from late position into my 10 10 BB. He floated me on an 246 board then I checked a J turn and he checked behind. River is a 5 and he sticks in a nice 1/2 pot value bet and I make a crying call. Garden 2 - 2 Wernick. I'll take that.
I then got moved and had Ash Hussein on my left as we were in Teesside. Had a good laugh with him again and he eventually knocked me out when I was low stacked. Revenge for the Q9 hand from Teesside no doubt.

Since then I've played a few comps at The G, but no results to speak of although the cash there in the pit on a Saturday is delicious. I must make an effort to play in that game more often, especially during the holiday season.
With the Blackpool GUKPT fast approaching it's time to start playing some sats or getting a stake together (doubtful). Off to AWOP HQ tonight for the first of their £20 r/b super sats into the £250 final with hopefully 4x Main Events seats up for grabs. I have run ridic good at AWOP in the past so this could be my best shot.

Finally for poker...well done to Steve Holden (who I met for the first time last month) for shipping the Liverpool leg of the CBMPT! Anyone who is reading this will at least be aware of Steve's prolific blogging and he's had a tough year or so on the tables so it's well deserved. WP Steve!!

I've just got back from a week in Ibiza with the missus and some mates. It was both 'bangin' and 'large'. Fucking expensive there but what a top place. We stopped at the Ibiza Rocks hotel which has a stage by the pool and they have a band on every Tuesday. We had the closing party with The Klaxons which was really good. Just got smashed in our rooms overlooking the stage then went down to the stage to get in amongst it. Did loads of other holiday shit as well, but can't be arsed going into that. Got predictably hammered most nights but didn't get ill (the first holiday in Spain I haven't been ill) which was a nice bonus. No leave now unitl after Christmas though. Gutted.

Had a nice little win on the footy this weekend picking Liverpool, United, Arsenal and Chelsea all to win @19/5. Liverpool made fucking hard work of it against the shit that is West Ham (get bent Amatay) and bullshit Fergie time salvaged my bet on Sunday.

Dunno when i'll update next. Probably when I ship the Blackpool GUKPT obv.
