End of Month Accounts

The end of the month will be here in about 15 minutes so I might as well do the accounts thing now. I am still playing in the Mansion Triple Chance thing with redcar playing as Host Portugal, get me on his table!!!!!

Okay, down to business. Its been a good month. I am £255.08 up on the month, from which I bought the most expensive pair of shoes I have every bought at £90. So the overall bank is now up to £1698.32. I have been running very well on betfair inparticular which is where I have played the vast majority of my poker this month.

Next month on betfair they are running a sort of leaderboard thing for stt's so I am going to be continuing to play mostly on there.

Ruru has kindly put me into the pokerchamps asian poker tour final in three weeks time, which is a $150+$10 buy in, but the prize is an $8k package to the live game out in singapore with a total prize pool of £2 million. Game on! Looking forward to it, but it is the night before the removals turn up to take our stuff up to norfolk, great timing.

€1000 Bonus plus V-Points

Got a result in the €1000 Bonus on Betfair this afternoon, I think there was 75 runners and only really entered while I watched the footy. Finished 8th for €100 (just under £70) for a €20 (£15ish) buy in. I have started to rebuild my Betfair bank to decent levels after winning and placing well in some £5 and £10 stts. Played a couple of 5 seaters on Sporting Odds and one one of them. Also played in the V-Points freeroll on Virgin tonight and finished 2nd for another 20,000 points/air miles. Total up to about 76k now.

Happy with the way I am playing at the moment.

No 8

I have sounded out Dests as the No 8 for the Team at BFWCOPII, she has supported the flashmob games in recents times and might add a bit of "balance" to the team.

Anyone got any major objections?

BFWCOP Details

Need to tie up a few details.

Firstly, team members.

Smart Money

Plus one more. Now it the plus one more that we need to sort. I was thinking of a few players that have supported the flashmob games in the past and at the moment, plus a few players that would play for us and/or have declared an interst in playing.

So what do you guys think, and any suggestions you may have will be helpful. I wont put up my list yet so as not to influence what anyone else thinks.

Secondly, accommodation. Who is sorted and who isnt? Doob kind of put me in touch with canary boy but I havent had much to do with him so not really sure if I then want to shack up with him and would prefer to share with one of the flashmob crew. What's everyone else doing?

Finally, once again a massive thanks to Smart Money again for sorting the shirts.
