Ok, main event is offering $5000 to the winner, i guess if i won i would treat the family to a holiday to Euro Disney, this way i would keep the family sweet and also in an evening i would still be able to play on Stars as all rooms have wireless facilities! Lololol Anyway, stay tuned and i will list all games and events as soon as i get them as there are going to plenty of games this time and not just the odd one or two, but even so, its better than nothing at all, and Pokerstars are once again lifting the bar when it comes to looking after its players, especially in the light of what was a terrible year for poker after the events of black Friday!
Well looking back at my blog, funny enough i have not really updated for almost a year! I have used facebook more as its instant and you can chat straight away to other players and friends alike. So to quickly recap on the year that was 2012, god it went so quick its a joke! Guess that shows my age lol
Live poker, i did win the Omaha PLWSOP in Coventry for a few bob and a nice trophy, i will be trying to defend my title this year. There was a good write up and picture in WSOP magazine, so happy with that. The holdem main event was a bit of a blur, too much alcohoal and buzzing from my omaha win, but It was a great weekend and great to meet up with all the guys and gals from Punters lounge. I also played a couple of £20 treble games in the local casino, i did not manage to win any but cashed in a couple which more thanm covered the buy ins, so happy with that i guess
Online, i did manage to win one of the monthly leagues on Punters Lounge and played three events at the local casino in Plymouth in the Grovesnor, had no luck whatso ever, one hand that sticks out even now i get 88 and the flop runs 899, happy days, eventually two of us all in, he has 9 10 and the 10 hits! Guess it was not meant to be but i did have a great weekend and was happy with the way i played
Wins, i guess not as many last year as i did not play as often as i have done over the past 5 years. I did win quite a few on willy hills and i did win the Paddy Power Friday £2K Added for about a grand or something like that.
I am really looking forward to 2012 and will be playing quite a lot of events on Pokerstars and william hill which are my main sites to be honest.
I am also a moderator now on Punters lounge and look mainly after the staking forum, so plenty of horses to back! Lets hope the blogger games get me going!
WIth regard to staking, i am presently doing a $80 stake for four players on punters lounge, i will update you how they are getting on as they are all playing on stars and its a great deal where i get my inital stake back first and then we split any winnings 40/40 and the remaining 20% goes back in to more games, so potentially it could be running for weeks with a small return each week, or a big return if one of them gets lucky and hits a big score!

Good luck at the tables guys
