The return from Cardiff

As i said in my last post i went to watch one of the heats at the William Hill GP, this is labelled as the best 'TV Tournament' it has a proper structure and the heats last a decent amount of time (similar to the old LNP series) obviously this costs a lot more to make with extra studio time but the finished product is much better. Will Hill also go to the trouble of adding a shed load of money to the event, and best yet looking after their guests! They put us up in the Cardiff Hilton and arranged travel between the Hilton and the Studio, they also had a tab at the Hilton so it was free drinks all night. Kudos to Hills and especially to Phil Quayle, the man knows what he is doing!

I can't tell you anything about the heat, you will have to wait till it's on telly, what i can tell you is that it was excellent viewing! In fact i think it will be the first heat shown a 'grand opening'

Back to poker closer to home, i came back from Cardiff and started playing again on Monday, no real joy, this was followed by an equally unspectacular Tuesday. Although now that full tilt have changed the Cap games to 40BB caps and the game has dried up i have reverted back to the HU SNG's i only played 7 but won 6-1. Thankfully last night (Wednesday) was a bit better! I had a small result in the afternoon $3500 $20 rebuy on Tribeca which set me up for good runs in both the 20 and 15k. The 20k i ended up coming 4th, a complete loon knocked me out when he called my re-raise all in with do these people get that far?!? I also built a stack in the 15k but came 19th when i ran JJ into the table numpty who happened to have AA!

The $20k is finally starting to pay though, the last 7 attempts have netted a 2nd a 3rd and a 4th. Anyway i am going to get stuck into some HU SNG's before the evening's comps (although i will probably watch Jericho first, if you haven't seen it yet download it! Its a very captivating programme about an American small town in the wake of a nuclear war!)

I also wanted to say if anyone reading this blog has a poker blog of their and they wish to 'trade links' then please leave me a comment.
