  1. Grinding my face OFF

    Call a doctor my face has literally fallen off!! Ok thatís a bit of an exaggeration but in all sincerity, Iíve played 30+ online tournaments in three weeks and have been extremely successful. First things first I placed 16th in the prestigious DREXEL 1ST ANNUAL 1,000 INVITATIONAL FREEROLL! I was 2nd in chips with 30 players left until Druff was moved to my table. He proceeded to bust a "Greycat" on me and sent me on a downward spiral I couldn't recover from. Other than that Iíve made 10 ...
  2. Mandatory Work Activity Scheme

    So I've been claiming job seekers benefits on and off for the past year while I've been looking for employment, only to find out yesterday when I went to the job centre that they've decided to put me on this mandatory work scheme. They say that I will have to work 30 hours a week for a month doing community service (working for charities or possibly manual labour on yards) and if I don't comply then they will cut me off the job seeker benefits. Baring in mind that I get £72 a week in benefits, so ...

  3. Just WIN (With a quote from Scott Davies 2014 WSOP APAC Main Event champion)

  4. Why Abandoning your Plan of Action in Poker a Majority of the Time is BAD.

    Hey all it's been a while. This isn't a typical blog and maybe I will do one of those again soon but this is something I felt like posting about regarding poker especially to help newer players out.

    I will say I rarely play online MTT's anymore due to time dedications that you have to commit to but once or twice a month I get that itch to register for a handful of them.

    This is an example of why in poker abandoning your plan of action is typically a bad idea especially ...
  5. Welcome BACK

    I'm back!!! Sorry for the wait, I've just been distracted by life. Exhaustion, work, and a crappy social life has been taking up most of my time. I've been very distracted and my game has definitely suffered. I lost 80% of my online bankroll by taking shots in bigger games and playing when not feeling 100%. I totally tilted and strayed away from my profitable hyperaggressive style.

    The huge swings in the higher buy- in tournaments caught up to me and ate my bankroll up, but I did ...
