Day 14 in the Black Belt Poker House.

Well it’s the last day of the second week and I so wanted to be in the black by the end of today.

The day didn’t get off to the best of starts when I fire up the laptop having had just two hours sleep. Edwards 13th birthday and he invites over 5 of his mates for a sleep over (did some fool just say SLEEP OVER) an xbox and DVD’s made sure there was no sleep here.

I fire up some stt’s and 60 minutes later I’ve spewed like £100 away, I get this back to just -£65 by the end of two hours. At the end of three hours I’ve leaked like -£185 and I have to take a break. Another two hours of stt’s and I’ve pulled it back by £20 so I resort to drastic action and fire up the cash tables for an hour. I get lucky with one particular hand a/I on a 9 high flop with JJ v KK and I spike a J on the turn. I finish the hour and I’ve pulled my losses back for the day for a break even return.

Played the graders Tournament on Pokerstars and got off to a good start but then got owned by Dominic Kay, something he’s doing a lot of just lately.

Ben Vinson gets 1st Place (Well done mate)

Eoin Kennedy 2nd (Well done buddy)

Aarun Bernard 3rd (Great result mate, v.u.l losing to a 3 outer from Ben)

New levels tomorrow are:
Week 3: $0.50/$1 NLHE 6max/HU, PLO or $30+3 minimum STTs

Current status:
Week One -£190
Week Two -£134
Total -£324

Good luck with the new levels man!

Are you including the deposit bonus in the amounts you are down?

I'm down £400, but that includes the deposit bonus which I've nearly cleared! Things are looking up though!
