Day 5 in the Black Belt Poker House.

Start of day running total was -£268

After getting back from the Broadway Casino around midnight where I went and played the £150+£15 monthly freezeout and suffering an exit just after the first break when my Ts were no match for pocket Aces.

I log on to Boylepoker and start hitting the H/U and have some success at last.

First session midnight – 3am wouldn’t normally play this time of night but got loads to do tomorrow so we crack on. 21 wins from 33 games to give me a net profit of £50.

14.20 – 17.50 yet again a winning session with 17 wins from 30 starts to give a net profit of £34 and a daily net of +84

New running total -£184 which I’m hoping to level out over the weekend.

Playing at DTD later in the £330 freezeout hoping to make it back for their Sunday dinner.

Villa not playing till Monday Night so I’ll be routing for reading against the blues on Sunday


Matchroom Sport are delighted to announce that Full Tilt Poker have signed a multi-year contract to sponsor the Poker Million – Europe’s most prestigious poker tournament.

Full Tilt Poker’s reign as sponsors marks the eighth edition of Poker Million, with the first six heats and a runners-up heat kicking off the event from July 15-17 at Sky Sports studios in London. The final six heats, second runners-up heat and two semi-finals will take place between October 6-9 with the live final date in December to be confirmed where the winner from 72 runners will scoop the $600,000 first prize in the LIVE final. There will be one online qualifier in each of the 12 heats, and the only place you can qualify is at FullTiltPoker.com.

“We are excited to take one of Europe’s most prestigious tournaments forward with Full Tilt Poker,” said Eddie Hearn, Director of Matchroom Sport. “There was no shortage of interest in capturing the title rights to this event and with Full Tilt’s impressive list of sponsored pros, viewers can expect the strongest Poker Million line-up yet.”

Full Tilt Poker pros Roland de Wolfe and Andy Black are two men excited by the new deal. “Full Tilt and Poker Million together, it’s like my best mate marrying my sister,” said De Wolfe. “I am excited to see my pals from the States – edog, Phil Ivey and Chris Ferguson – the top boys from the best poker-only site in Britain’s finest knockout poker event, and after I’ve knocked them out I’ll take them around the sights of London.”

Black added: “Another great boost to poker in Europe, Full Tilt Poker taking over sponsorship of the Poker Million and the resulting increase in truly world class players competing in the event has set the poker world salivating over possibly the finest 72 players to be assembled in poker history.”

John Duthie created history when he won the first Poker Million in 2000, becoming the first player to win a £1million first prize, with the final watched by a TV audience of 30 million worldwide. Snooker player Jimmy White was the next man to win the title and was followed by Donnacha O’Dea, Tony Jones, Raj Modha, Joe Beevers and 2008 defending champion Marty Smyth.

Spivver is negotiating with Matchroom to get a seat for this prestigous event for the Bridgnorth players, We'll find out in the next couple of days and will post details here if we get one.

Have a good weekend.
