One of my worst days betting wise.

My last post tells how I won 2.5k$ at 1am this morning - well I think I have approx spent that today and I have left the house for 10 mins spending £10 at local supermarket.

Horses - big place bet early doors then numerous other large bets no joy.
Football - I always back a sh1t prem team v 1st div team every year when odds against at home and never learn.
Poker - Lost £500 at NL and then my 500EUR WPT final qualifier treat lasted 27 mins in total when i lost all my chips when i had raised pre level 1 with 77 and could not put my opponent on a better hand on a 578 board (he had 6 9 os).

Terrible day for me with me to blame for it all. However, this is my blog, warts and all so that's how i spent it.

I ain't proud but I am trying to force myself to think I got my £10 shopping this morning for nothing - LOL

We live and learn.

I saw your post on another blog and figured I’d check yours out and give you a headsup about a WPT giveaway I’m running this year.

A lot of players want to participate in a 10K buyin event, but most lack the skills or experience, so if I gave that way it would be like giving away a lottery ticket. Unless they got very lucky they probably wouldn’t do much with it.

So I tried to come up with something that I felt would be a much better prize for the majority of poker players. I’m giving away a WPT Battle For The Season Pass III package this year on my site.

You can win a weeklong vacation in the Bahamas, training from the pros (over 20 in attendance last year) and entry into up to three tournaments while you’re down there. One of the tournaments is a 3-day deep-stacked event with a number of WPT, cash and boot camp prizes. The grand prize is a $100,000 WPT Season Pass plus $10K in cash for expenses.

You can use the WPT Season Pass to enter any World Poker Tour events you want (ten 10K events, a mix of 5K, 15K, etc)

The first free satellite is being held on Full Tilt Poker Sunday, February 10th, 2008 at 14:00 (2pm EST)

Right now there's only 34 players signed up, the top 4 advance to a single-table semi-final in February. The fields aren't going to get any smaller as word of this promotion spreads. So if you want in, you'll want to play some of the earlier events to have less competition.

Hope the tables & life are treating you well, and I hope you’ll take a shot at winning this prize!
