Laak Attack

snoopy, Wed, 25/07/2007 - 6:17pm
Now that I’ve recovered from my unscheduled extended journey home and overcome, although only recently, the devilish burden that is jetlag, I see no reason why I can’t retell a few of my experiences from Vegas. Unfortunately, I don’t have too many tales of drugs, sex and rock n roll that I am allowed to nonchalantly sp...

Battle Of The Blinds

snoopy, Tue, 17/07/2007 - 10:46pm
Well, here we are, final time, and what an accomplishment for Jon Kalmar. There isn’t too much more I can say that hasn’t been recycled over and over on the various forums. He’s done marvellous, and it’s great to hear of a real rags to riches story, Skalie confessing that he couldn’t even afford to fly his ...

Pens, Jens, Jesters & People Who Can Spell Poker

snoopy, Mon, 16/07/2007 - 9:52pm
 As with last year, the first four days of the World Series were absolutely exhausting and a nightmare to update. A 12pm to 4am shift and a lengthy taxi queue meant that we didn’t get home till around 5am each night, and if you consider that it’s in bed by 5.30am and up at 10.30am for the three s’s, that’s a hefty day&r...

Kafuffles & Scuffles

 The third Event we covered this year was the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Freezeout that was infested with British and European potential and touted as being our best chance of a bracelet. However, come money time, it was the Americans who triumphed, Paul Jackson being the only one to cash for England. With this in mind, isn’t it about time ...

Spiderman IV: Attack Of The Walruses

 Although the $50k H.O.R.S.E was brimming with talent and established names, it was the less lucrative $5k 6-Handed Event that provided more entertainment, Finish pro Thomas ‘The Eggman’ Wahlroos being the star of the show.

Grab A Grand, Lose A Grand

I’ve had two free days prior to the H.O.R.S.E and one day-off during, at which point I have decided to ambush the cash games. On day 1, I played at the Orleans and won $503. On day 2, I played at Caesars Palace and won $458 for a grand total of $961 – not bad for a few hours work. On day 4, I decided to spend the whole day ...

Turn And Face The Strain

snoopy, Sun, 24/06/2007 - 6:36am
 Every time I go to America, I always notice those small cultural differences… 1.  Us Brits possess little Geographical awareness of America. I took a connecting flight to Minneapolis, yet I still have no idea where in the States it is. I have enough trouble getting to the loo during the middle of the night,  never mind workin...

Grumpy Old Beagle

snoopy, Fri, 22/06/2007 - 6:19am
 As I sit in Gatwick airport waiting for my plane to depart, I guess now is as good a time as any to commence my WSOP blog. As expected, the journey here was an unpleasant experience. The shock of getting up at 7.30am combined with having my face pressed up against the window of the rush-hour infested tube was to be easily outdone by the 20 mi...

All Quiet On The Western Front

snoopy, Sun, 27/05/2007 - 4:28am
 It’s been pretty slow going for me recently with very little in the way of excitement. I did pop over to Paris (not my favourite place in the world) for the Grand Prix, but with the WPT cameras barred from the premises, there was a subsequent lack of ‘name’ players, and who wants to hear stories about  nobodies?!

Ranting With The Poker Brat In Vegas

snoopy, Thu, 17/05/2007 - 6:32pm
Continued from Goo Goo G'Joobing With The Eggman In Vegas... Another character who likes to make his voice heard is that of the Poker Brat Phil Hellmuth, who just missed out on the big money after he was unable to fold Jacks to The Eggman’s Aces on a raggy Flop. Inevitable ygraceless in defeat, Phil tried his best to leave without compla...
