No Focus

Played three events at JPs mini world series the weekend before the last without a result. The main event I went back Saturday with a healthy 40k. Had a rush of cards that I havent seen in ages; AA twice KK QQ, flopping a set and was out within an hour of play. Funny old game. Played the €250 game and ran kk into Ak in about level seven I think and no good in the Sunday shootout either. A great addition to the calendar and as ever with JPs games, ran to perfection.

I'm playing no poker outside the big festivals in Ireland since the summer and really need to find some focus and get some kinda of grind going. Be better off playing STTs or something online then doing my stones on betfair anyway.

Big congrats to Derek Murry on wining FTOPs24 and a cool $125,000 last night. Was railing and chatting on msn with Derek for about the last six hours of the tournament and he put in an awesome performance. He hit the chip lead about 150 players out and was in total control all the way to the finishing line. Derek has hit the last 2/3 tables and run bad in similar events a lot so it was great to see him hit a big one, one for the good guys, WD m8
