Heading to Cairo, Egypt

I really need to focus on my poker play as I am financial broke. My whole plan is to play poker to finance my travels. In the last 3 months I have done more travel then poker and spent most of my winnings. So why am I heading to Egypt. Believe it or not I won a free entry into a huge poker tournament in Cairo. They are even paying my way to get there. I will be staying at the Cairo Marriott Hotel & Omar Khayyam Casino which is where the tournament is being played.

As far as poker this week I was VERY happy with my play. My first hand I lost my full stack $100.00. So you might say why am I happy with my play. The reason is I stayed focused did not lose my cool and won it all back plus $30.65. I played 5.53 hours so that gave me an hourly rate of $5.54. See the hand I lost below. If I win big in Cairo I will be doing a bit of sight seeing so you might not hear from me for a while.

Cheers,

DUG

Are you as happy with your poker now that pokertableratings shows that you are at your career low?

If you look you will see that poker ratings does not pick up every hand in fact it does not have any hands for me after October. It also shows hands I never played as I do not play at the level tables if shows hands for.
