“The Aussie Millions is amazing and you should go.” – Max Silver I’ve been meaning to go to the Aussie Millions for a few years now, yet I’ve always found an excuse. It’s too far, it clashes with PCA and don’t forget the MASSIVE SPIDERS. None of these really held water and when the PCA…Details
Well a bunch of stuff has happened since I last updated; the most major being that I am now a married man! The wedding was the most amazing day and truly the best day of my life. On the poker side of things I’ve had a bunch of big cashes, including my first profitable WSOP…Details

Last weekend I flew to Douglas, Isle of Man for the inaugural UKIPT Isle of Man festival. Despite busting early on day 2 of the Main Event I had a very successful weekend, winning the £2,200 High Roller for £20,800 and coming 7th in the £165 PLO for £420.
Combine this with a very successful UKIPT Galway and I am now in contention for the UKIPT Player of the Year leaderboard. The overall winner of the leaderboard will be awarded packages for every single stop of UKIPT Season 5.Details
A few days ago I got 2nd place in the UKIPT London High Roller for £59,906, losing to Vanessa Selbst headsup. I wrote an article describing my final table over at the Full Tilt Poker Blog In the very first hand of heads-up play I got A8s in the big blind; Vanessa min-raised and I…Details
