WBCOOP 2013 - World Blogger Chamionship Of Poker

There have been numerous up and downs over my time playing poker. I first learnt sit and goes then moved on to MTTs and then went on to playing cash games. Later I played omaha and also 8-game. I played both live and online.

The best part of it all was moving up through the ranks from the bottom at NL2 to playing over 20k hands at NL400.

I am now looking forward to playing this years WBCOOP series..!!

Last year's entry was a lot more interesting..!!

Pounds Sterling - United States Dollar 52 Week Low

It might be a good time for UK players to cash out a little from your poker account as the strength of the Pound vs the Dollar is at a 52 week low:

Holdem Manager HEM1 Additional HUD Filters

I have just tweaked my Additional HUD filter for HEM1. I think that I have got it as good as it can be to cover the various player number situations:

If you think that I can improve it at all please leave a comment. Thx.

A Month Full of Comebacks

This month has had far too many comeback days in it. For some reason I seem to lose the first session of the day and then spend the rest of the day getting back to even. Weird month.

If you like watching poker as well as playing then you should probably check out

I have used it on quite a few occasions to kill a bit of time.

They also have a forum and affiliate site deals.

They have a variety of sections of video clips. My favourites are the 'Beats, Brags and Classics' Section..!!

I Added NL200 6max To My Mix

I decided to try a new mix of ZOOM tables in one session: (1x NL200 6-max, 2x NL100 6-max, 4x NL50 FR)

It went well:


It is annoying that when you first try a new game/ level you can over adjust and play badly. I also didn't get much help running into quads with and over-paired full house. I will build up again and take another shot although I think I will be better moving out of ZOOM for the shot.

Thank You Hundo

A couple of standard 5% river out hands.....

In this second hand I took an interesting line with having watched villain (also marked as a whale) call a flop jam with 22 previously (4th pair) against someone else. I figured my jam would have AK written all over it

Premier League Winner Betting Odds

With a gap of 12 points now over Manchester City it looks like Manchester United will go on to win another league title. The only other contenders are Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspurs and Arsenal. My team Liverpool are sadly only shooting for 4th place.

Not A Live Poker Pro

While I do enjoy some aspects of live poker: the banter, a few drinks and a change of scenery there are other parts that I don't fancy too, like the travelling and the pace of the game.

In December I stated that one of my 2013 goals was to play more live, like once a week as opposed to once a month like I normally do. However having gone to the VIC a few days ago for a nights action I am going to scrap that goal and stick to playing once a month.

I found the action pretty slow and uninteresting at times. Plus I didn't get any VPPs :). One of the problems I think is that I have always played the 2 lowest levels which is probably just too low. I play the £1/£1 and £1/£2 (BI for $300/$600 respectively) games and some of the pots are just too small to excite. I will try out a higher game next time and see how I like it.

Back to online....

Check Raising Short Stacks

In this hand I wanted to crai the shorty on the flop but I got a timing tell when he insta bet reasonably big. I thought he would fire again so I just flat. I decided to crai the turn and the perfect card fell.
