Absolutely everything has gone wrong betting & poker wise since my exit.

I have lost over £2k on sports &PLO has been unreal.

2 examples today in 2k pots when i called a 4 bet with KKxx both times flop K including once on K74 rainbow versus K7xx and AAxx, and both times the river came A for total pots north of 5k$.

Then just now I get 3 way all in with open ended straight flush draw in PLO versus higher flush draw and another pants hand, hit a non flush csrd straight on turn and finally think my luck has turned when the river pairs the board which I thought was a blank until i see the 4k$ pot ship the other way and then realise as well as f draw he had top 2 pair (so was fav to be fair).

Then finally, on tilt i wedged Bolton tonight at 11-10 and they come from 1 down to go 2 up, I am just pressing the button to take stake back at 1.3 when of course - goal to forest !!!

I had an interesting main event.

30K start stacks and I lost AK suited v QQ for 60K pot midway through day 1, leaving me nursing a 5K stack. 24 hrs later on day 2 I had a 95K stack with the average stack 50K and was going / playing well when I got moved tables to a much more aggressive table.

I played a hand poor giving over 20K away and then my exit hand was basically 10 7 of clubs, I re raised the button from the small blind, flopped a flush draw on K95 flop (2 clubs) and put a decent sized continuation bet in, then on a 7 turn i shoved my stack in as pot sized bet, villain dwelled for 10 mins but made call with KQ and riv was a Q and I was over and out.

I final tabled the PLO in the Estrella's event coming 8th for 900EUR. Was pleased with my EPT effort although disappointed with the final table I was at, and also 24 hrs later they were almost in the cash with 160th paying 8KEUR.

I did an interview with Poker Stars when there - link below.

Saturday was unreal. Started off with a treck across London to the showjumping with wife and kid and then left them to go to Olympic park before meeting up with a mate. We had a few beers then watched GB win Gold in the Womens Team Pursuit in the cycling and then a dash into the Olympic Stadium for one of the most immense experiences one could have with GB winning 3 golds in long jump, heptathlon and then Mo in the 10K.

Next morning I headed to table tennis then back to Olympic stadium to watch mens 100m final which was pretty amazing also.

A £300 double RichardsRoss and Bolt paid for my ticket also so all sweet.

A quite simply stunning experience that will be with me forever - don't think I will ever experience an atmosphere like that of Super Sat in the Olympic Stadium.
