Like with many late night poker stars tournaments there is an unhealthy amount of gambling early on as people look to double up or go to sleep, this was evident as a double up in the first few hands with kings against the monster that is q7. The tournament ran smoothly until the bubble where [...]
Another big cash for Bas as he finished 3rd in ECOOP 7 (Holdem Limit). Now he has a top 3 finish in all 3 of the major networks, Stars, Full Tilt and Ipoker. Report to follow.
Before the start of the tournament, I took the option to buy an extra 1500 chips and started with a 3000 chip stack. When I play re-buy’s, I like to play them like a freezeout and try to stay away from any big confrontations pre-flop unless I’m holding 10-10+ or AK. This can sometimes work [...]
I started of this tournament playing very tight as i usually do at the start of any MTT, moving up the gears as the blinds increase. At the first break i had an average stack of about 4500 from an original starting stack of 3000 after i won a pot against a short stack when [...]
Betfair/Pokerplayer Grand Prix report. After winning freeroll 2 back in November, which was a feat in itself with 640 runners, I finally got the details of the live final, which was held at the City Bunker in Canary Wharf on 16th May. The main prize was a £12,000 seat package to the WSOPE, with the [...]
The Eat My Stack Forumis being moved to a new server. The forum is back online for now but I’m sure there will be more down time until the migration to the new server is complete.
Bas walked away with first prize over $48,000 beating 1075 players in this $200 +16 buy in event. I hope to have a more detailed report from Bas in the next couple of days.
I’m delighted to announce that Bas has been signed by Virgin Poker. It is great to see a poker site such as Virgin Poker back a young player with potential rather than another well known name and I’m sure this deal will reap dividends for both Virgin and Bas. Bas posted on EMS….. “I can [...]
The second Virgin Poker Festival was a big success for me personally, as well as an even bigger success for EMS. With 230 runners, and a £28,000 prize pool, it was definitely worth qualifying and turning up for! I played, quite possibly, the best poker I have ever played across the two days, and one [...]
After travelling up to Newcastle on Friday, I warmed up for Saturday’s main event with a night at Stanley’s along with quite a few EMSers. I donked my way out of the first tournament, but then managed a second place in the £20 midnight freezeout to leave me in a good mood and feeling confident [...]
