I made the final of the London GUKPT!
2010 is going well so far - played seven live poker tournaments (PCA main event, PCA heads up, EPT Deauville, EPT Berlin, UKIPT Manchester, GUKPT £300 side event and GUKPT London main event), cashed in three and made one final. Not a bad GUKPT record either - as far as I remember, I’ve played five of them since it started (Cardiff, Brighton, two in London and I think I once played one in Manchester or Newcastle - I may be wrong - jeez how it all rolls into one long night at the table) - I came 11th in Cardiff, and it’ll be at least 10th in London. Oh yes, poker players love their stats…
Update: I finished 9th for £9,100. Not as good as winning it, of course - always depressing in the moment you get knocked out, so close - but I’m pretty happy with the result. The way the cards fell, I was never ‘destined’ to win it, and I’m really pleased to make the final and have a nice cash. Or I will be tomorrow ;-)
Meanwhile, in the day job I’ve been rambling about Nicolas Sarkozy’s randy father.
