The Live Tour

The Brucepoker Live tour kicks off Sunday at the Crowne Plaza hotel Dundalk at 4 pm. There's a guaranteed prize pool of €10,000 but I'd imagine this will be passed easily, has the makings of a good game so hopefully see you there.

There's not much action in the country in the run up to the IO and as the blog consists mostly of my tournament reviews I cant imagine many posts over the next two months. I wont go to Walsall for leg 2 of the GUKPT this week but probably will play leg 3 in London the end of March. I'm playing a little online but not any real volume. Live, I've been playing a couple of nights a week at the Olympus Casino in Waterford. Seamus and Brian have reopened the card room in partnership, its a lovely spot for a game and hopefully it takes off this time as the lads deserve support.

Cheltneham is only two weeks away and I cant wait. I have a couple of very nice antepost vouchers that I hope to be collecting. I'll have one more major bet over the four days and that will be on Kasbah Bliss in the world hurdle, 11/8 might seem short to some but value is a relative term and I cant see anything touching this one.

I mate informed me that I'm featured in the above book for the greatest bluff in the history of poker. Obviously I was straight on to amazon for a copy; small piece on the no cards hand from the 2007 Irish Open. Amusing to be in a Racingpost publication written by Graham Sharpe.
