This month started well with a win in the Cricket Club game and a successful transition to $20 + 1.80 turbo sng's on Absolute. The standard in the 20's is no better than the 10's or 11's as they are now for some reason. As string of 8 cashes in succession saw me +$220 on the month, but things have gone totally pear shaped since then. I've had a horrible run of 10 losing games interspersed with one 3rd place to see me more or less back where I started. Runs like this are nothing unusual of course but it's irritating just the same. At least four of those were on the bubble as well - SIGH.
Meanwhile I couldn't win anywhere else either. I've had a go at some $5.5 tourneys on FT in a Raise the River syndicate and failed to cash in any of them - close on a couple of occasions but no cigar.
I was quite surprised after the trot I've had to find that I was just above breaking even. It can't be all bad if you can achieve that while running bad.
Meanwhile I'm casting around for a bricks and mortar tournament to go to during the summer holidays. Anything up to £100 buy in considered. If anyone knows of any likely candidates in the north west/Yorkshire areas please let me know.
