I am playing Day 1b of this event. It features a 30k stack and a 60minute clock and is in what Phil_TC refers to as my "Happy Place"

I"m selling 30% at 1.16 so 5% = £32.50. Prefer to cap at 5% per stake to share it around a bit at the moment.

Playing with or without stakers - I tried the satellite route this week and failed on the £500, but won a £150 seat which I am using toward my share.

I"ve blatantly copied much of what follows from the aborted UKIPT Newcastle thread...

For those that don"t know me, I"m a 58 yr old recreational poker player with a love for the game that means I"ll play any structure to get a game.
I write some rambling posts about poker and stuff here - http://www.apat.com/forum/index.php?topic=10564.225

Over the past few years I"ve won my share of comps in Casinos both in Northampton and in Stockton. I"ve had two fifth place finishes in DTD Super50 games having played maybe 6 of them.
Made Day 2 of a £300 Deepstack and the October 2010 GP without troubling the cashier and got my first Hendon Mob flag when I made the live part of the August 2011 Grand Prix V.

In 2012 I"ve played five deep structured multi day tournaments and run pretty deep in four of them.
I"ve definitely improved my game over the past year or so. Studying histories and reading Hand Analysis posts on here and on Blonde have helped. I"ve not been afraid to post my own hands and have taken criticism and suggested improvements on board. (see UKIPT exit hand as mentioned in my blog...)

February DTD £500 failed to make Day 2, but did manage 5th in the Super50 for £660 in a field with a lot of Deepstack players

March UKIPT £1MM gtd, made Day 2 and exited close to the money when my flopped two pair were counterfeited by running threes on turn and river. Had that hand held (or had I folded pre as I should have done) I was highly likely to make the cash that day. I learnt a lesson from that hand though so it wasn"t all bad.

April DTD GP; August DTD GP; September DTD £500k guaranteed - #varianceismyfriend

Playing Day 1b, tomorrow so bank transfer needed will supply by PM. (or cash tonight from any of the Invading Hordes / locals who are foolish enough to invest)

Flame away.

Just out of interest does the the "home game player" count as part David"s percentage when it comes to working out apat"s cut when he wins it all?

Yes. I"ll ship 1% of 30%

If "off-forum" stakers are an issue can someone say? It was one of those moments today. I mentioned i was selling not anticipating any intrest from him but he"s a buddy and it would have been churlish to refuse.

Don"t understand that. Surely you would only pay APAT 1% on whatever was sold through the APAT forum?

I offered 30% on here though. Had I already sold the 5% off-forum i"d have offered 25% here.

Or is that muddled thinking? (it is early, and we were invaded yesterday...)
