Scotsmen, Chinese Food, & Flush Draws

elblondie, Fri, 02/06/2006 - 8:25pm
 So the European Tour (poker variety) has reached sunny Barcelona. It’s 8pm one balmy evening in late May and an assortment of the UK’s finest poker players are trotting across the Harbour to the Marina top floor Chinese Restaurant (well, there’s a limit to how much fish you can eat in one week).

  It’s been a while since I updated the blog, so I thought I’d better make the effort. I’m not running too well at the moment, so to be honest it’s a chore to sound cheerful.

It’s ver...

 I’ve just arrived off the VS043 in sunny Vegas and I just had to share some of the goings on with you. You just can’t make this up… it’s so far fetched it has to be true.

  Just when you think you have seen it all, the poker gods always throw up a new experience to make us smile.

Thanks for all the support over the weekend guys (and gals). The Vic Classic has been a lucky tournament for me over the years and I was hoping history might repeat itself again. I’d won this event in 2000 and 2004 but unfortunately, this year wasn’t quite going to happen.

It’s been a long hard road getting here and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the team for the great efforts in getting this far&...
