More time needed

Apologies again for the lack of updates, I just simply don't have enough time in the day to do everything I want to do!

Poker wise, I have had a fairly quiet week.
I played in the Sunday £40k, after qualifying in the £13 MTTs and managed to go out on the bubble in 41st place. I was was sitting in about 36th at the time and I get 99 on the button, the cutoff did his usual raise, so I moved in, he instant calls with K3 and hits not one but two kings!

I have had a couple of final tables and made a little money but nothing special, I also played a few hours of fixed limit cash games, winning the grand total of £50, but did manage to rack up 700 mpps in the mean time.

A few words of congratulations, firstly to my good friend Mr Lee Hayward, who won the NTX last night, for his first significant win, well done sir. Also another good friend Paul Barrington-Light won a nice tourney on pokerstars and took down in the region of $5.5k ,very well done.

Whilst I am on the subject of acknowledging people, I would also like to thank the wonderful people at Littlewoods who sponsered Royal Windsor races last night and kindly invited me along.
The first 5 winners helped me enjoy the night, but a few really nice touches like picking out the best turned out horse, (Orchard House of course!!) made it a really special evening.

Rachael got to present the trophy to the winner of the second race, although unfortunately they had to just sell their horse in an auction, so they were not the most pleased winners I have ever seen!!!
Only downside was the torrential rain, but you can't have everything.

Poccer continues to dominate my time, holidays, weddings, injuries etc are taking their toll on the teams who had previously registered, so I am still trying to fill the remaining few spaces. If you fancy getting involved please let me know, would be great to see you.

Cryptologic have got their Golden Cup series back in September, so that should keep a lot of interest in the site, which is good news for players.

One thing I have been looking at is the chat on the site and how wound up some people get! I have taken down a few conversations that just made me laugh.
Please be wary that some of the language used below made be offensive to some, so if you are of a sensitive nature, don't read on.
