£1000+90 DTD "The Main Event"

Apologies for the delay in mentoning my cash in the £1k DTD tournament which borrowed the WSOP main event structure. What a great structure tournament it is, definitely the favourite tournament I've ever played in because of this. It just allowed so much play. At no point could it ever become a shove-fest or a crapshoot. It really was a thing of beauty. A lot of players failed to adapt to the deepstack nature of the tournament, which I felt increased my edge against the field.


I had to trek back and forth to Nottingham for 4 consecutive days. Was both disappointed to not get into the big bucks that the final few made, but pleased with an 8th place finish (for £6,250) and the fine performance I put in over the 4 days and 30+ hours of poker I played. I definitely felt I was playing my A-game for most of the tournament, and a final table appearance is a great confidence booster after the downer of the Blackbelt Grading last month.

I intend to do some kind of report on the tournament in the near future if I get chance...

Well done Sir, planning to use the money for crack at something else?

Well played James.

BTW, I've dropped HUSNG for a month or two whilst I get 60% rakeback on Betfair but when I start playing them again I am definitely up for a sweat session as you mentioned before
