OK, I didn't quite make the post a week or two ago like I said. Anyway, I just finished a small Omaha Tournament (its a poker game for those that don't know!) and won it. I am dreadful at Omaha so thought I should play some more to improve (hence why it was only $30 to enter). First prize was $480. Not a huge win but still, it was nice to take it down as I am so inexperienced at the game. Before it, I thought I fancied a change from Hold 'em and Stud, glad I did now!
The update on work has been delayed very slightly but I gather all will be revealed on Tuesday of next week, stay tuned!

A super quick post as I have been so crap updating this lately. I have three days off from today so will get around to a "real" update. In short, life has been good. Work has been so incredibly busy and after a hard day at work (and four hours of poker), I admit to lacking any desire to update my blog....bad me.
As the family know, I was presented with a few opportunities with work last year which I did not move forward with. There have been further developments on this front of late and I am hoping I can post details here by the end of the week. As the odd person from work has this address (bad move on my part!) I will not disclose too much at this point but in the main, it is all positive.
My Mother has not been so well unfortunately with a recent hospital visit but she seems to be making good improvements and hopefully now has a clear bill of health.
Poker is going very well though I am missing some big game action. Pending the recent developments from work, I am hoping to make it over to Vegas for the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in a few months time. I have put £10,000 in my building Society for "playing purposes only" so if it goes, it goes, but either way, I will have a great time playing a few of the WSOP events again this year. I only managed two last year, but I am hoping to make it at least 5 or 6 this year including the Main Event.
As per last year, I will probably be selling percentages in me. The buy in is $10,000, first prize will be in the region of $10-$15 Million US . Pieces are available at £150 for each 1% of any winnings from the Main Event.
I will give more details nearer to the time for those who wish to do this again.
Until next time, Keep Safe
