WPT Malta €3300 ME Day 2

The closets I have been to true love the past 15 years is the love I feel for my favourite TV show “The Sopranos”. Corrado “Junior” Soprano described my Day 2 best “I was waiting like patience on a monument”. I find it annoying when people complain about being card-dead for the simple fact that boring stories are boring to listen to. I will make it short ladies and gentlemen.

Special thanks to GlobalEventCoverage.com for giving me the photos for this blog and supporting me during the tournament.

€3300 WPT Main Event Day 1a

I changed my original plan and decided to play day 1a yesterday. I had found out you could buy-in again on Day 1b if you got knocked out on Day 1a. Furthermore playing Tuesday would give me a day of rest before playing Day 2 on Thursday. The tournament started around 4 pm. I came 15 minutes into the tournament and found my seat between an older German guy and young Austrian online tournament pro. We started with 30,000 chips and blinds were 50/100. I was highly motivated after having a very good live cash game session Sunday here in Malta.

WPT Trip – Life Tilt to Happiness

After packing my bags and leaving my apartment 4am I was on my way to Malta for the third time this year. As I was walking towards Copenhagen’s central station I realized that that I forgot a charger for my MacBook. It was too late to turn back and it was too early to buy a new one...

My Story of PokerHistory

Today is the first day in a new era of my life. I have been working in the online gambling industry since I was 20 years old. At the age of 21 I bought the domain Poker.dk together with two industry friends. Due to a law that was passed in Denmark November 2003, I got a letter in 2004 telling me I had to close Poker.dk. The alternative was to leave the country. If not I could face 2 years in prison and have everything we earned confiscated plus get a fine of 100% of what we made. As most of you know I chose to move to Malta.
