Lots of Poker

It’s been busy enough for me on the poker front this month. Boylepoker have really upped their live game presence in recent times with the season’s series and a number of other excellent partnership games. The Connacht Poker Open in Galway was another very successful tournament that I attended two weeks ago. No run in […]

Sure tiz great craic in Galway

Belated Happy New Year to Boylepoker blog readers. The Christmas period went very well for me with Silviniaco Conti being a particular Highlight on Stephens Day.     It was good to start the New Year with a poker festival in Galway again. The buy in for the Irish Poker Championship (IPC) may have dropped off […]

From Galway to Dundalk

Poker has taken a back seat to punting sports for me over recent months. You got to take the cash where you’re getting it and it’s been some time now since that place has been the poker table for me. Every time I’m leaving for a weekends poker there’s an opportunity cost conflict as I’m […]

M9 Blues

My mileage on the M9 has been piling up since the last blog. I was up and down that wonderful beacon of modern Ireland six times in the space of the week.   First up it was JP’s mini WSOP at the Village Green Club in Tallaght. The day started with a four ball at Tulfarris […]

Corked Up

I haven’t been on since the very successful Boylepoker Summer Series at the Maldron Tallaght. A great tournament, kudos to the Boylepoker team, JP and Larry for producing as smoothly run an event as you’ll ever play.   It was at that tournament that the sad news of Liam Flood passing became known. Liam is […]

Summertime IPO Killarney

The IPO Killarney last weekend was a blast. Throw Killarney, sunshine, poker, World Cup, golf, good company all into a mix…well you get the picture. The final numbers were in the region of 400 which was a little under expectation but given the weather totally understandable. I played two of the three starting days opting […]

Fanboy

Got a great Kick out of watching Martin Kaymer stroll to victory in the weekends US open. I had a nice touch out of the result but $$$$ aside I’m just a huge fan of the guy in general. I’m not that into football/GAA but it would be a similar pleasure as watching a team […]

Cannon fodder

There hasn’t been much poker for me recently. I’ve been playing a bit on Boylepoker client attaining the relatively small point requirement to get the 20% added money for the IPO Killarney. The tournament is closing in fast now and there’s nightly satellites running in the poker client with multiple seats guarantees each night. I’ve […]

Kingdom Come

It has been a very good weekend for people who I am a fan of. First up big congrats to Dagunman on his SCOOP success. John has run ultra-deep in so many recent big online series games, it was good to see a bit of justice and him converting in the weekends $2,000 6 max […]

A very forgettable Irish Open

The Irish Open is my favourite tournament however the 2014 offering will be quickly banished to a deep recess in my memory vaults. The Open is about playing the main event and socialising when knocked out. Unfortunately for me there was no socialising this year. I could feel a tooth that I knew needed extracting […]

Norwegian Masters

“I saw more beer spilled at the Norwegian Masters festival then I’ve seen drunk at the WSOP”. This was a Tweet brought to my attention by JP McCann, written by an American visitor about the monumental festival which finished last weekend. There can be no doubt that our Nordic visitors come to play and boy […]
