WPT Nottingham and Super XL online grind
After two weeks in Malta playing The Battle of Malta and another smaller tournament we packed our bags for colder latitudes, it was time for World Poker Tour in UK. We checked in at Orchard hotel, a quite relaxing hotel 10 minutes from the Dusk til Dawn casino. the first time I came here was four years ago for the UKIPT in 2010 ‘Cash game paradise and tournament hell in Nottingham’
After that trip I forgot to exchange two £200 chips which I brought to Sweden and I now finally got them exchanged four years later WITHOUT losing them!
Unfortunately I busted the WPT UK in Nottingham after I lost a flip with AK< QQ for average stack on day 2 when we were 76/356 players left, so no cashing this time. Luca was close to busting on day 1 but finished with 12 bb's. He was struggling as one of the short stacks for most of the tournament but never lost his patience. He kept reminding himself that he was just a double up and a rush from being back in it again! Luca 10 doubled his stack during day 2, made the final table and in the end finished in 7th place with a quite nice payday. Never give up - “a Chip and a chair"
Now I’m back in Gothenburg for a week visiting my family and playing online. The Super XL Series started on 888poker two days ago.
I played ten Sunday tournaments, made four cashes and two final tables on @888poker, in Super XL $200k Opening event and Super XL $150k Mega Deep.
It’s good to see the Super XL Series on 888poker crush the guarantees. Can’t wait to play more of these tourneys this week before going to Prague!:)
Ci vediamo ai tavoli!
