Not sure why they moved it from the bank holiday weekend as you would assume more people being able to make it.

The Goliath is definitely something I'd be interested in planning for next year. I can't do this year as it falls on my birthday and with me being 30 the missus has organised a big thing for it. Next year though... Bring it on.
One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Hotel and travel booked for the Goliath getting married next year so not going abroad so I've set aside £500 to play poker for this and side events.

Played last night for the first time since 'Hot Streak Brighton'.

Went out in 17th, but was chipleader for a bit until my Aces got cracked by Jacks AIPF. That took me too just above average sending me on a rollercoaster ride of good calls, grinding and losing more smaller all ins (wnning only the smallest one) before a guy who was desperate tp play back at me because I'd been raising a lot chose a terrible spot against me with Queens, three bet me 10-6, I called, it went to a flop of 10-7-6. All in on the flop, brick brick. Maybe could have folded, but he'd been so desperate to play back at me, I guess I had him crushed the majority of the time. I was still 25% to win the hand I guess. Meh.

Yeah that's one thing that we can't control at the table when plays try play back and get lucky.

I ran bad last Friday running my KK into a turned trip Q's when i had opened pre UTG and some guy calls with like Q6 and it's a Q high flop he jams and I call.

So i ended up making a couple hundred at the cash table with KK flopped top set against a lower set for a lovely pot :)
