Doesn’t February come around quick?
Here we are again, time for another World Blogger Poker Championship on Pokerstars. The last two were great fun even though I didn’t win, so third time lucky!
The Pokerstars guys are keen to know what we would do with our winnings – top prize $5K would be fantastic.
In my case it is easy. I have a three part plan.
Last time I was in Vegas I gave the Venetian a miss, spending time in the new Aria cardroom instead. I did go there during the ’09 WSOP, but was too cheapskate to play the proper deepstack and just had a bash at a $120 Second Chance instead. A little crapshooty but not a bad tournament, except that I was card and luck dead. With my skillz I need both cards and luck so that was that.
Anyway, I digress. The deepstacks proper sound excellent, being 2-day events with a decent stack and a decent clock. With enough money to not play scared I reckon I’ve got decent chances of luckboxing a decent score.
Obviously if I’m down to my last $300 I’m going to have to start lower. But I have plenty of experience losing at $50NL 6-max so I reckon it’s only a matter of time before my luck turns.
This will carry on until the early summer at which point I will have a decent wedge, just in time for…
The resulting victory will be my passport to a residency at Stars mid-stakes and to the HSNL thread on 2+2. My natural wit, telegenicity and all-round-good-egginess will ensure me invitations to Sky Poker guest commentator, Pokerstars Red Pro and perhaps even the Palace.
I can see it all now. What could possibly go wrong?
Anyway, you are probably wondering why I’m prevaricating instead of giving you my January 2012 results. Simple really … I didn’t play much and when I did I didn’t play very well. But then, I always lose in January. I blame SAD. That and fish making resolutions.
But here’s the score on the door:
Oh well. Still, February has already started better, so we’ll see what happens!
