Im sorry for not keeping you guys updated in the blog lately about what I have been doing. I know that you have read about me in the Team Redkings blog though so you know that we have been all over the place playing tournaments and what not. I came pretty close to another big score in EPT Copenhagen, but I didnt really make it all the way and finished at 19th place in that one.
I was in Australia for about a month in the beginning of the year after playing the Aussie Millions and I have to say that we had a really nice time down there. Im not much for the cold so being in the sun for a whole month and being able to go to the beach and stuff was great, of course we were very interested in the tennis as well
EPT Copenhagen was basically right after I came home from Sydney and I was really playing good and solid there, but you always need some extra luck to be able to win a big tournament like that and it didnt happen this time. I lost a big pot with ATs vs TT when I called an all in and after that I reraised all in for the rest of my chips with KQ and got called by 9Ts, the board came KQ99x and I was out in 19th place. After the Copenhagen week was over I took the train over to Lund in sweden where Jonas and some of my other friends live. Lund is a place that I like to visit once in a while since I have so many good friends that study in that town, and after Copenhagen I stayed there for about 10 days.
I have also been playing alot of onlinepoker at Redkings, I have been playing alot of PL omaha at 10-10 and 20-20 with varying success, but I must say that sometimes there are some big swings in that game.
The most resent trip I came back from is Dortmund, me and Jonas were down there to play the EPT. I got to say that I dont like much about Dortmund but that just made me want to focus more on playing my very best in the tournament. In the main event I was running pretty good in the first levels and had increased my stack to 18k even though I had a tough table with Peter Eastgate, Davidi Kitai and Jonas. It was looking pretty good, but after the dinner break I picked up AKs on a new table and a young guy raised to 800, I reraised to 2300, he made it 6500 and I decided to push all in for my 19,3k, he thought for a while and decided to call with kings so I was drawing pretty slim. The board didnt help me and the kid had me covered so I was sadly out.
Both me and Jonas played the 2k sidevent later the same week, I didnt have alot of luck and lost a big pot with 88 on a 99A8A board when the ace came on the riverand after that i was shortstacked and never got back from it. Jonas had more luck though as you may have red in the redkings blog and he finished 4th in that sidevent for 35k euro. Thats at least 3 finaltables between us so far since we started playing for RedKings
Right now im at home in Stockholm for a little while and I am going to play some tournaments here at the casino that are going to be good, the main event is a 25k kronor buy in, so hopefully I will do well in that. In the near future we will also have EPT San Remo and EPT Monte Carlo lurking and both of them are going to be crazy big so that is going to be fun
Hopefully you will read about me winning one of those big upcoming tournaments here soon.
