Awesome performance last night. Starting up the diary = immediate binkage.

Lol cheers Jason. I was right about the winning, except I won RSQ instead of real money!

Most of the sweats didnt come to anything last night. 14th in the 6max club, 15th in the big 2e, 81st in the big 10e so all for bowls. Pretty sigh. Really really promising start though!

Had a few more sweats today. All ended up bricking but its good news and confidence is pretty high atm. Feel like Im playing really really good poker and really believe that something is coming.

Confidence has never been something Iv excelled with. When I used to swim, Id stand on the blocks and there'd be literally nobody I could look at at the side of me and not believe I could beat. That confidence is something that you definately need in poker. Its inside me somewhere, I just have to unleash the beast!

Thinking about going to Alea tonight for their £10+£4 with 2 rebuys. Its a decent tournament, normally gets about 60 runners. Its a while since I played live so itll be nice.

Only problem is Im not quite sure that Ill be allowed in lol. Having left mot too long ago, I could be barred. Will have a go though. Hopefully I can get in, if not Ill be coming back to play online!

So yeah, was supposed to be going to Alea tonight to play their tournament. The cardroom is run by a load of my mates so itd be a good laugh but also pretty good value.

As some of you may know, I worked at Alea around 3? months ago, until I left to go to Gala (where I also left lol). As I said, its been 3 months since I worked there, and 2 months since I worked at Gala, so thought Itd be ok. In the past, ex staff havent served bans from the cardroom, only from the pit. One guy left and was allowed to play poker the following week, one a month after he'd been sacked and another a few months after.

Basically expected to just have to clear it with them really. Oh no. Id been asking my friend who runs the cardroom to ask about it. He wasnt really given an answer, just "ill let you know". To save myself driving down there (25 mins or so) and being turned away, I phoned in advance to make sure it was ok. I got put through to somebody who I didnt know (I knew every member of staff 3 months ago) and he said he'd find out, took my number.

15 minuites later I got a phonecall. "Hello Jamie, you wont be allowed to play today. Sorry." then put the phone down. Tbh Im pretty disgusted with this. No explanation, no reason, just "not today thanks". Wouldnt really mind if it wasnt for the past incidents as casinos have these policies and whatever, but this just seems like one rule for one.

I may be wrong, it could be that there was nobody in that was able to authorise it (though my friend assures me hes spoken to everyone besides the GM). If I am wrong then apologies, but if not, does anyone know if I have a leg to stand on?

Sucks to say it mate but with stuff like this I find its better to 'turn up' and mention other people doing it rather than 'ask in advance' cos then its all official like.
Still sucks tho. ul.

£2 nuts poker league it is... sure Alex gots da rolls? Tongue

Objectives please... want to know ur aims for this and next year... (or good guesses)

Ok so plans...

First and foremost, I obviously want to play for a living. To do this, I need to win enough money playing MTTs to be able to play 50/1. There are plenty of easy 50/1 games around besides Gala that I know I can do this. Obviously to really play for a living Id need to be playing 1/2 also, but that will come in time. Start small and all that!

Really want to be a reg in the deepstacks etc. The times I have played these I have felt really comfortable and have gone deep, so feel like I can do well in those in the future. I have to work up to that point though, so time to grind.

Eventually Id like to be rich enough to play the crystal maze end game in my car. Blowers on full, throw up some 50s and scream the theme tune as loud as I can. ONE TIME
