Changes to Guarantee tournaments.

March has seen a few changes already to some Guarantees.

10am £800 GTD has been reduced to £700 GTD
4.30pm £900 GTD has been reduced to £800 GTD.

Expect crypto to keep a eye on their guarantees over the next couple of weeks as they wind down. They are usually very good at ensuring there are no big overlays out there.

Last night though the numbers were down on a night that is usually strong for them. Might be worth watching the £9k figures tonight, especially as there are a few Premier League games on, which usually affects the numbers.

10.05pm $1200 GTD has been reduced to $1100 GTD.

Betfair has been highlighted as one of the sites with good value at the moment, so we shall keep a close eye here.

February 09 Review

For the first time in what seems like an eternity, I can actually post about making some steps towards getting my game back together again.

Its not been an exceptional month and it doesn't cover all the outlays I have, but my records will show that February 2009 was a +£1.6k month and that is a step in the right direction.

The main profit came from the 4th place in the Littlewoods $20k, but I also had a 2nd on Inter as well as having a postive ROI on STTs, yes honestly I made some money playing Stts!.

I have been playing these 20 seaters on Littlewoods at $20 and $30 and apart from a minor blip yesterday I had a 69% ROI, unheard of!

So although there is a lot of work still to be done on my game, I feel that I am finally moving in the right direction.

Poccer Season 2
I am delighted to announce that I am once again going to be running some Poccer events. The first one is the 28th March at the Grovesnor Casino in Walsall, if anyone is interested just let me know, it will be a fantastic day out.

CPC Deal.
No update on this I am afraid to say, I have not heard anything more in the last couple of weeks and now that we are into March, I can't see me being paid my 5% that was agreed.
Really dissapointed in this, as I was relying on this to get my bankroll going again (everything else gone into buying a house) and it just makes you wary of trusting people in this game, something I never thought I would be.

The tournies to keep watching are on Littlewoods and Betfair. Last week the $20k on Littlewoods had a $6k overlay one night.
It is also worth keeping an eye on the Party Poker 8pm, now that they have moved to $30k guaranteed, as this is not yet meeting its guarantee.

The main value tournament at 25% was the 8pm on Littlewoods. This has now been reduced from $2.5k Gtd to $2k Gtd, but its entry fee has halved from $22 to $11. This if anything has increased the % overlay!

Good Luck in March
