I opened an account at PaddyPower (iPoker) to take advantage of the 2+2 book offer. Unfortunately after only a couple of hours play there I find myself down nearly $100. I have stuck to 1/2 so far, but just seem to be missing all the flops. Oh well, I guess it will turn around.
I also dragged myself out of bed at 4am this morning (in the freezing cold, I might add) to play in a $15,000 freeroll for the EPT London on Pacific. Sadly it was not my day, and I finished around 64 out of 86 runners. I actually saw plenty of decent PF hands, including AA, KK, QQ, and a couple of AKs - but I just never managed to get paid off with the decent hands, and instead I got people playing back at me when I had marginal hands like AT, KQ and 77. In the end I busted out on a completely bonehead bluff. I correctly read the weakness of my opponent's hand, but he found a call with TPNK.
