I have decided to take a step back from playing APAT live events in season 8 and limiting to perhaps just the WCOAP and maybe if there is a festival style weekend at DTD with some mixed games

Will still play all the online nationals etc and any promos that Matt can come up with.


Really nice write up Carl...... but hate ^^ this bit!  Won"t be the same without you there.

Thanks John/Steve probably a knee jerk statement, but I do need to see what season 8 has in the pipelines, you never know there could be a Omaha tour which could persuade me to play a couple more..

WCOAP is always a 100% yes for me and any festival that offers prehaps some mixed games PLO/PLO8 would be hard to miss.. But I guess we will all know SOON  :D

Well I have been rather lazy and not updated this since April! so thought I would jot a few words down as i wait for the wench to serve me my lunch.

So the idea of me not playing any events this season kinda went out of the window, wich is a good thing.. My goal was to prehaps focus more on weekends away with Emma non poker related.

So I did manage to whisk her away to Stratford upon Avon for a very nice long weekend, visiting all the Shakespeare tourist attractions etc etc.

Then I get a plead from the wench to go to Luton in September!! Obv the draw of drunken shenanigans with the other degens was just too much for her  ;D, but alas I had already booked tickets for a family day out that weekend, and it was our eldest daughters 18th birthday, so we had to for go the trip..
Then there was a plead to go to Leeds?? Wtf is going on I have converted her to wanting to go to a poker weekend wiiii.. So without a second thought we booked and had a fab time as always, the TGI Fridays on the Friday evening was hilarious as was the whole weekend lol.. Bamber Gascoigne!! Enuff said.
Now it was time for Manchester, as skipper of Blue Blood poker for the online league we qualified by finishing 2nd, so I had been looking forward to this for months. We as a team didn"t perform well and ended up near the bottom of the pile  >:( only two of us managed to score points, I scrapped into day two but exited 35th after losing a big flip JJ v AK the old A on the river.. But was able to jump into the PLO side event, which tbh I should of been out in around 20th but a young lad protected my all in and JP had to fold on turn held the nut flush other guy Q high flush JP a set, river paired the board phew.. We got to final 7 and agreed a bubble saver of £50, I was happy as I had 3 bigs.. Well without babbling on I short stack ninja my way to HU with Ady, we do a deal and flip FTW I flipped best lol, a nice little bink to cover hotel and bar bills for 3 days.
Now it"s Coventry next  ;D again Emma pleaded to go so as a good caring partner I obliged and booked hotel the day we returned.
So looking forward to Covenrty in Febuary and WCOAP in March/April, so much for a quiet season 8..

Oh and a blatant brag!!.. One of my goals for 2015 was to top the APAT all time money earners, I was playing catchup to Dave Garden, my little bink in the PLO took me to the top so goal achieved in 2014!!

Now I"m chasing John Murray for his top spot in cashes, but the old codger has a very impressive record and will be hard to beat!!

Enjoy Ireland you lucky lot, that is one event off my radar  :( would love it but it"s a def no no.. See you soon

don"t want to piss on your parade, but I just heard from Tom that the non festival side events were never supposed to be HDM flagged events. Tom is doing an audit at the moment, and all itty bitty sides are going to lose their flags - guess that might impact your stats (and mine)

And the internet must be right :)

Just remember Carl, whatever happens, whatever Tom might audit, whatever The Hendon Mob might delete, they can never take that screenshot away from you.  Never.     Ever.     It"s your"s.     Cherish it.

I thought the Hendon Mob Database was meant to cover all tournaments which fitted their criteria?

If the side events fit that criteria it seems odd that they"d be excluded.

Just a quick update..

Haven"t played a hand of poker now for 5 weeks!!.. On a sabbatical while I"m having some disabled adaptations done to house. Hopefully be back on it next month, all these excellent results from the "degenerates" are giving my appetite for poker back.

Huge congratulations to Curly and Dan for their recent scores, and Rodders for his deep run on home soil.

Have parted company with Blue blood poker which was a tough decision, but with some internal politics currently ongoing and my involvement with Bank Roll Supply playing a major factor these things happen in the cut and thrust of the poker world.

Gutted to be missing the APAT team event qualifiers and the recent Welsh online and Manchester jollies  >:(, but family always comes before poker.
May have to beg a team for a spot in Luton as I will obv not be asking/qualifying as a Blue Blood captain/player this year.
Take care folks and hope to catch up with a few of you in the near future.
