Team Flashmob is Born

smart money
mc roller

keep in touch guys and please let me know if you realise that you cant play.

Not taking anything away from the 8 gladiators above, but personally I wish steviep could play, along with redcar and ukgatsby. Hope you guys can make the main event and if we get some t-shirts made up you are more than welcome to wear one and be part of the team on the saturday if you are there.

Bubbled in the flashmob this week which was a "quality not quantity" night with some decent non regular plays in the mix. The regulars managed to outlast them all and wp to MiltonBadley for the win, best you save the winnings for BFWCOP II my man.

Redcar came a v creditable 2nd and UKGatsby again in the money in 3rd (wp). He's getting good at this game.

See you all next week.

Flashmobbers of the World Unite

Right guys, its time the Flashmob kicked some butt.

Arrangements are being made for BFWCOP II which will take place about the 2nd weekend in September, so you have plenty of time to save up for it. Entry will probably be £100 + £10 which is usually way over my budget. However, I am going to save up and pay my own way this year after getting sponsored for the first event by the Total Poker crew.

Looks like there may be a team element to it so I am proposing we get a few of the regular flashmobbers together and take the world by storm. Let me know either here or on the Betfair forum if you would (or wouldnt) be interested.

Currently, me, Doob, KFW, Smart Money and MiltonBadley(harayir), snap and maybe MC Roller and StevieP have declared an interest in playing for the team. Anyone else?

Close but no Cigar at Cheltenham

Very poor Festival for me - with zero, yep, zero winners. Never happened before but perhaps its because I have not followed the season as much as I used too. I've missed a fair few of the big races in the build up which usual provide you with some of the critical information that you need to pick the winners at the festival. That said I have had a fair few places at some decent prices which has stopped me from completely doing my conkers and I've ended up about even!

Day 1
6 horses backed, 0 winners, 2 places (28/1, 14/1)

Day 2
6 horses backed, +20 e/w doubles, 0 winners, 1 place (11/2)

Day 3
8 horses backed, 0 winners, 4 places (8/1, 14/1, 5/1, 5/1)

Day 4
6 horses backed, 0 winners, 3 places (16/1, 12/1, 10/1)

The weekend again, Cheltenham and a diary

Back for the weekend again but next week I aint going back to work as I have to go for a course down in Hampshire for two days, then I'm off Wednesday afternoon until next week. Perfect timing as its the Cheltenham Festival, where I'll be visiting on Thursday with my mate Sav. If any of you reading this are going, give me a shout and you can buy me a Guinness if you like.

This weekend for a change I have decided to keep a complete record of all the games I play s this list will grow as the weekend progresses. The list will consist of game/position out of total players/profit or loss, so here goes:

Friday Evening
City AM Freeroll on Betfair - 114/116 = -£0
$10 stt on SO - 1/10 =+$39
$10 stt on Virgin - 3/10 = +$9

Saturday Morning
£2 mtt on Betfair - 16/84 = -£2.25
€3 mtt on Betfair - 13/37 = -€3.30

Saturday Afternoon
£5 stt on Will Hill - 8/10 = -£5.50
Saturday Freeroll on Will Hill - 334/1000 = -£0
£5 stt on Will Hill - 6/10 = -£5.50
$10 stt on SO - 2/10 = +$19

Saturday Evening
$10 stt on Virgin - 9/10 = -$11
$10 stt on Virgin - 2/10 = +$19
Saturday Night Freeroll on Bet365 - 8623/10000 = -$0
£5 stt on Betfair- 3/10 = +£4.50
£2 mtt on Betfair - 36/423 = +£2.83
£2 thunder mtt on Betfair - 514/514 ( ! ) = -£2.25
$10 mtt on Betfair - 33/97 = -$11
$10 stt on SO - 3/10 = +$9

$10 stt on GoldenPlace - 4/9 = -$11
$10 stt on SO - 7/10 = -$11
$10 stt on SO - 7/10 = -$11

Sunday Afternoon
$10 stt on SO - 2/10 = +$19

Sunday Evening
£5 Flashmob mtt - 4/21 = -£5.50
PiggyPoints Freeroll on Betfair - 44/54 = -100 PiggyPoints

So that was a typical weekend of poker for me. +$59 -£18.17 -€3.30 and not forgetting - 100 piggypoints. A small profit overall.

Back midweek, catch up with everyone then.

No win in the flashmob, this week

Came a decentish 5th in the flashmob tonight despite knocking 3 out on the ft, finished off a good weekend at home, with the family and playing online. Won a few stt's (including a $20 one on Sporting Odds), so will have made a bit of a profit.

See you all next week.

Guess Who's Back and its time to bubble

Back again for the weekend - see you at the tables, and I will stay up later playing this weekend. Done the accounts for Feb and I was 210 up, another good month.

Its the Blue Square Bubble Freeroll on Sunday, so I better try and qualify so I can defend my title. Update: Just played the first 10c turbo 6 seater and won it (broke through the bubble with 6k in chips so went for the win), but managed to win it in 15 hands. Dam just looked and entries had to be in for 12 pm today, arrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhh.
