I'm still moving along nicely on the $15 x 18 man sit and goes on Stars. The usual variance of course but Sharkscope has me on 17% roi on there now and I'm actually better than that as those stats will be including games I played on Stars before my recent return there. So - happy with that.
I have hardly played a tournament. Certainly the only memorable one was an APAT $50 entry jobbie which crashed and burned in a horrible fashion. At 50/100 and with a full stack I 3x raised in mid position with QJ clubs. 2 callers. Flop comes QQJ 2 hearts! BINGO I thought. Guy bets into me. I call. The other guy folds. Turn comes a blank. Half pot bet into me and I call. River is 9 of hearts. Great I'm thinking. If he has Ax Hearts I'm going to clean him out. Half pot bet into me. I go all in. He calls and has K10 hearts of course for the straight flush. That's the second hammering from a rivered straight flush I've had this year. It's about time one of them came my way.
Meanwhile with the matched betting I've been working my way through the spread betting sites, which has gone nicely for around £250 profit. With a bit of study some of these spread markets look to be "arbable" as well, so I'm going to leave my money in the sites and have a look at that one. Happy days.
