Tweeted William Kassouf as he's playing in the Goliath and he tweeted me back 8-)

Gonna see if I can get a picture with him.

I have my eye on a few events including the High Roller if the Goliath doesn't go to plan.

So apparently this FT starts at 1:30 tonight. I've got an hour left of Day 7 to watch (the only day I've watched) and it's been pretty enjoyable.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I will be free rolling the Goliath as I won just over £800 on the slots last night :)

Not long now, I will be playing at a Casino in Leeds this Friday as they have a £10k tourney the last Friday of the month for £75.00 as a bit of a warm up :)

I played this tonight. 18 runners and I busted in 11th after being a under starting stack for pretty much the entire time I was in (3 hours or so).

Had only one hand of real note which I felt I did well not to go bust with. Raised pre flop UTGwith AAsQs9 and flop is AQ4 rainbow. I lead out, 1 caller (SB). Turn is a J, villain checks to me and I bet again. He bets pot putting me all in and leaving himself very little behind. Like he's only ever doing this with KT so I make the good disciplined fold, he shows KT56 obv.

From there I pretty much folded junk until I had 12BBs left and shipped 66 when it folded to me in MP. Guy to my immediate left who has been running hot all evening obv has AA, gg.

I feel a bit down on poker at the moment.

From the 1k runners survived and bagged chips for day two.

Only just over 15BB but went card dead in the last few levels where blinds were big.

Saturday I'll be trying to spin my stack up and make a deep run.

Nice work, it's hard to make Day 2. I think out of all of us that have played (some more than once), only Dark Donk and Nova made it past Day 1.
