Hi guys this is my first time representing Party Poker I am honoured to be on such a great team.
I flew in to Melbourne late Monday night dined at my favorite Greek restaurant Tsindo’s with an old friend and got ready for my assault on the Poker News Cup.
I chose six events the first was eagerly anticipated the Online players V the Live players and I was fortunate enough to be the captain of the live team. The event had a great dynamic lots of energy lots of fun as most of the players knew each other. Andrew Jeffries shipped the heads up battle for the onliners and Ben Savage took the overall title representing the live players scores were close 780 to 681 to the way of the Onliners.
Every body had a great time and we look forward to it becoming a regular feature on tournament circuit.
Event two was the PLO followed by the Tony G Bounty (they had 500 on my head). This was a great event for me (not only because I made it past the first break) but deep into the tourney I ended up with Tony G on my left … which made for a most interesting and entertaining 2 hours … and what a gentleman he is!!!
Unfortunately for me our battle was short lived after we ‘shoved in the dark’, blind Vs blind and there was no “7 from heaven” to get my K7 over the line Vs Tony’s KJ.
There was no love for me in the six-handed or the main event, but I look forward to tomorrow’s teams event where I partner up with my nemesis from the Aussie Millions, Raj Ramakrishnan!
On a final note … I had a great time at the Party Poker Players Party I was very nervous before my first speech and my friend/manager suggested after seeing me practice that some lubrication of the throat was definitely needed. I managed to stumble through my opening speech and I admit this is definitely part of my game that needs work.
Overall from a poker perspective this trip was a little disappointing but as always I had a great time in Melbourne and look forward to coming back to defend my title of the Aussie Millions in January 2010.
