Hi guys, here is my thread where I will (attempt to) earn myself a trip to Brighton for the UKPT £220 event later this year for free! SmileI have just come off my semi successful first blog where I turned my €20 first deposit into a Brighton UKPT package (busted on second day) and €500 profit over a six month span mostly from SNGs. 

I've just got myself a new job and with roughly one month until the start date I want to hit this hard and try to complete  the majority before my start date. I will play just SNGs (€1/€2 5 man or HU) whilst also playing cash/mtts to complete the monthly challenges. I'll stay away from anything thats not poker!

My initial aim is to deposit £30, withdraw that £30 and use the profit to make £265. £220 for tourny entry, 45 for travel/food/drink. IDEALLY I'll make an extra 60 to get myself a hotel room for the night. Last time I travelled back by train the morning after which worked fine but wasn't exactly a treat. It'll go something like this:

Stage 1: Deposit £30

Stage 2: Withdraw original £30 leaving us to play with pure profit

Stage 3: Turn remaining money into £265 for Brighton UKPT entry and travel

Stage 4: If time, earn additional £60 for hotel stay

Anyway thanks for reading, I'm getting stuck in tomorrow and I will update every day I play! I'll also provide a detailed trip report once the blog is completed and I attend/ship the tourny Laugh

Good luck! I also will try to win a UK package (or UO package, but is much harder). I have never played a live poker tournament, so this is my main goal for 2019.

Urghhhh. I've lost about 12-13 €4 UKPT sattys in a row now and got super unlucky again tonight. With 9 left I was average chips. CO+1 opens, I shove JJ from CO and he calls off with A3o and makes his 30%. Crippled me for about 80% of my chips and went out 2 hands later. Would have been 2/8 (5 tickets) with 1.8x average chips with plenty of fun players at the table dying to bustWonder

Rant over. Apart from that I mostly spent today completing challenges! Got out of cash with profit Cheeky only 54c but honestly i'm only going to play cash for the challenges so I'll take it. Got to play a bounty tourny so in about an hour theres a 25c bounty i'm going to spin up for that. Bubbled a €4 ticket after I folded JJ amongst other hands as all the shortys kept doubling on a long bubble. I eventually got my 2 bbs in with AK and got called by AA lol gg. Overall though my mood is good, looking forward to getting stuck into this challenge! Tongue

Thanks @Kamon and good luck getting to your tourny!! Live poker is a lot of fun.

Well today was BUMPY. Haha. Won 3 and cashed 5 in 7 SNGs. Despite the ugliest bubble in a LONG time.Rofl Lost a 70/30 and 90/10 in back to back hands on the bubble. Got it in from sb w/ A10 and he called off in the BB with A3o. Then the next hand he shoved the BTN (lol), big stack folded and I got 6 bbs in with AA. His A9 got there! The only other non cash was when I got A9 in against A6 and lost. So nothing I could do with those. Roll is just over €40 now so comfortably rolled for €1 SNGs now.

Had to play Banzai for the monthly challenge. Lost 3 buyins with flips AIPF (AJ<99, 99<A10, AQ<JJ) before finally getting there with A10>A5. Won some change playing PLO. Need to get 4 of the same suit twice, have to try again tomorrow as I'm off out now! 

@GR1ZZL3RDeffo mate, hope you change your mind and can make Brighton! You could buy me a pint in return for those favours I'm gunna be helping you with Rofl

Have a good weekend guys.Popeye

Crikey today was a struggle. Ran super bad at Hexapros. Just one more win there would have been the difference. Carried on the run bad at €1 SNGs until I cashed in my last 3 and I think I'll stop there for the day!Smirk There was one crazy SNG I have no idea how I didn't cash in. I had over 5k 4 handed at 200/100. We were still 4 handed when I busted in 4th at 500/250 (5bb average stack). One player who survived me was under 300 chips at 4 different intervals and was under 100 at one point. He just wouldn't bust. Did nothing wrong, never pulled my hair out so much! I think I had over 6k at one point.

So pretty happy to get out of today only £1 down could have been a lot worse. With no more cash or hexapros to play until at least next weekend (for 5th anniversary challenges) the roll should enjoy a prosperous week! Rofl The more volume I put in the quicker this will be done so fingers crossed I can find the motivation this week!Popeye

I am so frigging happy to finish ahead today haha. Only one cash in the first 5, followed by 3 wins in the next 5! Most brutal beat I took was QQ < J10o AIPF for a win where we finished 2nd. Most fun beat was AQ > AK on the bubble to cash (sorry not sorry). In general lost a lot of 70/30s so happy to get 3 wins! Even most regs here are quite bad.

Just missed a royal flush again.Waterfall Shoved 16bbs UTG 5 handed w/ AKs and got called by 66 in the bb (nice call, sir). Flop was AKQ, turn Q gave me the royal flush draw and the 6 on the river gave me a brusied keyboard Rofl

Stressful down here haha. Could be going better but we haven't had a losing day yet so I can't really complain. Some of the plays are just remarkable haha. I'll leave it at that! Got a cash ticket now so I'll keep that ticking over and use it for challenge and when we do eventually bust it it'll be an extra €5 for the roll so all good. Only downer is the challenge points are so low. 20 SNGS for 77 points lol.Smirk

Oh hello £60 bonus! Cash What an unexpected reward! I just logged in to do my centroll and saw a whopping €119 euros in my account I was like holy hell did the Euro get burned by the pound or what? However it was a reward payout! So Mission 1 of the challenge completed (withdraw my deposit) and I have a roll back up to €84!

Game well and truly on! In Love

Grinding away. Gutted I'm not in MK for the UKPT fun. Looking forward to Brighton! Steady wins at €1 and won't be long before back up to €2 SNGs. Probably after I hit 5k points and have a few days off.
