My aim in poker is to win a Sit N Go Jackpot and have total poker winnings of $50,000. Since the end of 2010 I have been recording my progress in this blog. Currently I am playing the Maui Jackpot Sit N Go games, working on ways to improve my win rate % and thus increase my chances of hitting the Jackpot. My profit total at 1st December 2015 is $26,377.

Betfred Poker League Update 2
The table above demonstrates the progress I made in week four of the
Betfred Poker League. A fifth place and another decent cash left me knocking on
the door of the overall prizes. With two weeks to go and two consecutive top
tens under my belt I felt confident I could progress. Sure top two would be
unlikely, but top five is very much attainable.
Controversy was to surround week five however which means the leaders points
above remains unchanged following a strange decision by Betfred Poker. The fifth
week of six in the poker league was changed from a £5 buy in to 5p!. With the
£250 guarantee still in place this meant a lot more entrants. 128 in total
meaning the thirty or so regulars were swamped by new players. Non of the
regulars were happy about this. You could maybe understand it in week two as an
attempt to generate more interest in the league, but not week five. In the
end not one player from the leaderboard above got a top ten spot so the
leaderboard remains pretty much unchanged with one week to go. I managed a creditable 24th and was one of the last regulars remaining.
Congratulations to Vanpersie20 who is now guaranteed to win. He looked
pretty solid for victory before the week five adjustment to be fair and deserves the prize for some fearless play. Enjoy the
game and the £250.
Assuming we are back to normal for the final week I need to hit seventh at
least I think to get in the top five. This will move me forward at least two
places and allows for someone from behind moving ahead of me. Whatever happens I
have enjoyed the league and profited from it so can't complain too much.
Happy to go for it again in the New Year Betfred. More weeks within the
league, a later start time and no last minute rule
