A quiet month so far

Hi all. Sorry for the lack of posts. Work has been crazy, so busy and pissing me off immensely. We have a new boss who wants everything done yesterday, is trying to cancel xmas (I am nightshift New Years Eve ***weep***) and is thoroughly getting everyone down. I so wish I was good enough at poker to make a living from it, never mind :-(

Poker has been steady, had a couple of nice paydays but not been playing as much as so busy. Played the BF Team reindeer thing with 'The Hunnies' but we did no good and gave up. The points structure was terrible and in the end Mr Dests was playing it for me as I couldn't be bothered. Well done to Dibble for being part of the winning team.

Trying to get sorted for xmas as have all family coming down on Saturday. Will be nice to relax and spend time with them. Will post before the new year with my goals for 2007. Hope you all have a fantastic xmas and see you soon!

Gl in your games,

Well, November was a great month. Concentrated on GTD mtt's and managed 10 final tables. Really happy with this but a shame that I couldn't finish any of them off. Should finish about third on the Sun leaderboard which also puts me in a $5k freeroll for the top 30 finishers.

My game has become much more consistent. In the past I have gone through phases of playing when I can't really be bothered to concentrate but play regardless, ending up losing. With this leaderboard to focus on it has helped my play immensely.

Crypto have released a new version of their software and I must say that I do like it. Not really played on Betfair, with the daily posts on forum regarding connection problems, games freezing and the big pause between hands I do not feel that I can play there. BUT, I will be playing the christmas team event, The Hunnies are trying to win the EPT seats and I believe that we have just a good a chance as anyone else. Should be fun and hopefully won't have too many software problems.

Gl in your games,
