Things are going from strength to strength with PokerIdol and the OnGame network. We continue to grow while others fall, making us one of if not the biggest 'secrets' in online poker! I say secret because most don't mention OnGame when discussing viable networks for grinding. That's fine, our client base are more regular, fish players, I'm sure the few grinders we do have don't want you disturbing the pond! Here is the OnGame traffic graph, almost back to normal:
The big dip was from losing France from the network, that one stung us all. However you can see we added two big new partners around the same time and since then the combined efforts of the skin has abled us to continue growing. If you want to see what you're missing out one, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) today for a special deal. Both the GSOP Online/miniGSOP (tournament players you DO NOT want to miss this) and GSOP Live are going strong too, check out the PokerIdol.com home page for details on there.
I've not been upto a great deal of anything interesting hence lack of blogs. I ended up missing Malta which was a huge shame as I was so looking forward to it, but the event was a huge success. Lots of teams in the team event and a great webcast by the PokerIdol team. Sadly neither of the UK players made any cash, but they really enjoyed their trip. Here are the girls outside the club and a preview of the new PokerIdol colour theme:
Have been spending a lot of time with Anna (give me another ahhhhhh!) which is brilliant. I enjoy every minute I'm with her and her cooking is amazing! She cooked for my friends the other night before we watched An Idiot Abroad (amazing) and it was really nice to properly introduce her to them. We took a stroll through the park (theres a bowls green there, surely no one will mind if I do an hours putting on there every now and then? its perfect and just opposite my house) the last day she was here and I must say it was amazing! Surreal, but amazing.
Check the PokerIdol jacket, what can I say! I know I don't look it in this picture, but I'm very happy here.
My poker chip collection is finally complete (for now). I have an amazing BCC Solid tournament set which I absolutely love. The 25,100 and 500 chips are Capone's and the 1K and 5K are Fun Nites. Even though they say something different on them, they're the exact same chip, which is fine for me as I love the colours rom each set.
Now to organise a game! Am going to try and get the Poker Project crew together again. It's such a shame when groups of friends break up for whatever reason. Mostly people getting on with their lives. I miss all my old poker buddies and all my old uni buddies! I try and stay in contact but it's so hard when you're working all the time. There's definitely not enough time in the year to fit everything in, but I really should make more of an effort. Was looking through my old uni pictures and this is definitely my favourite, what a cracking night out that was!
Look at the timestamp, nearly 4 years ago! What I've done in that time, and how time flies!
The business planning is still going REALLY well, I'm so excited about this. I'm writing formal business plan now and will then contact a few key partners to make the thing happen.
Sunday I'm off to 'Shuffles' in Portsmouth. They've very kindly invited me to play their £250 Main Event and I'll be writing about the club in my next GX Magazine review.
That's it for now and as always feel free to contact me.
