Live Tournament Spinup Let Us Gogogogogogo

I didn't manage a full break this week. I couldn't help it. How am I supposed to take a break when Paradise run a Stud tournament with a double overlay ? And then Full Tilt start some rocking WSOP Double Shootouts ? I'm only human.

Luckily I managed to resist playing tonight, I say luckily because I had a schedule all planned out but then Stars moved half their events back an hour, again. I'm sure this was completely unconnected to the Warm Up being 2000 players short of guarantee. Stars are lagging behind IMO, either that or Full Tilt are catching up. You might remember me complaining about Stars dropping the ball with WSOP Double Shootouts last year. What happened was the first one needed 63 runners to cover the $12,500 package. It got 62. Stars cancelled it. The next one was cancelled with 58 runners, the next 54, and within a week you could stick a fork in it, it was done.

This week, Full Tilt have started some shootouts. The first two or three were a few players short of the guarantee, but they ran anyway. Obviously within about two days they're filling up every night. Tilt have also relaxed their T&Cs, as far as I can see, so that you don't have to pimp them if you win a seat. So I'll be trying those, and yes, that means I'll probably be doing my bollocks in the desert sun again for anything from 2-6 weeks this summer. Beats sitting in an office watching the 3 hours of British summer through the window I suppose.

As of the now though, the kitchen is all go and I'll be playing live tournaments, providence help me, for a couple of weeks, mostly GUKPT but I might pop into this London Poker Circuit to have a look at that as well. I have five grand in £50s burning a hole in my pocket so let's rock.

Update : it's Friday, I've been here for 4 days, and I've played 1 hour of (cash) poker. Frankly, as I said in the Vic last night watching the barbarian hordes mass to attack the 300 freezeout, I think I'm getting the best of it.
