146th MTT Win

August 17, 2009

Tags: Bristol, DaMatrix, Gala, Win.

Almost won back-to-back MTTs. Came 2/124 but then came 1st/255 to claim my 146th MTT win, $100 for expenses and a £330 seat in a live tourney in Bristol at the end of the month.


Update: Almost won another tourney but lost two heads-up cooler hands. 2/51 :(

Under my newest nickname 1Mirrion (i.e. 'One Million' ROR) I just beat John Gale (WSOP & WPT winner - over $3m in live tourney winnings) heads-up to take down his bounty as well as first place in the Gale & Boyle Bounty tournament on Racing Post Poker.

I found out about the tourney right here on PokerNews:



Negreanu Wins Big for DaMatrix

Tags: Auction, Chip Me Up, Negreanu, Win, WSOP.

"Daniel Negreanu's 2nd place performance at the WSOP $2500 6 handed limit event #14 produced a dramatic bid war as ChipMeUp.Pokernews.com members fought late into the night for a 1% share of KidPoker's $138,280 runner-up finish.
ChipMeUp bidder DaMatrix won the auction for a bid of only $20.71!"

Doesn't say that I spent about $300 in bids and only won 0.5% of Daniel!

Made a profit though so all good.

Just won my 144th MTT by coming 1st/253 in the PokerNews $1,000 WSOP Qualifier on Titan Poker.

Was quite an achievement since I was a short stack on the bubble.

I will be playing in the $535 WSOP Mega 40 Seat Super Sat on Sunday as a result.


Only managed 282/822 in the final :(

May Summary

About to complete my 11th winning month in a row. It's been quite hectic, over the past week I've 8-16 tabled on PokerStars and managed to reach Platinum Star which because of their UK May Promo (I will get 80,000 VPP bonus) means I am well on my way to reaching Supernova status.

Won my 143rd MTT recently when I came 1st out of 200 in Betsafe's Loyalty tournament. Also finished 6th in the first HighStakesDB league.

Registered HighStakes.eu and developed it a little bit but I am interested in selling it if anybody is interested. Make a bid here: http://www.sedo.com/search/details.php4?domain=highstakes.eu.

Finally, going to Vegas next month and shares in Event 51 which I qualified for on ParadisePoker are available on Chip Me Up here: http://chipmeup.pokernews.com/event/17827.

The side event package that I won consists of:

Flights from London Gatwick to Las Vegas
7 nights accommodation at Planet Hollywood

Also won $500 in another tourney. Not a bad Easter!

Just won a seat to the Betsson Estoril Live Final. The great thing it is that I qualified completely via a freeroll. I came 2/369 in a freeroll yesterday to book one of 4 seats into the $320 final today which guaranteed 15 packages. Today I finished 6/110 to win a $3,300 package!

"Show your poker skills in the biggest casino in Europe! Play Betsson Estoril LIVE and battle it out for an estimated prizepool of $1,000,000 and make a name for yourself among poker players all over the world!"

"This exciting live event will take place at the glamorous Casino Estoril in Portugal 12th to the 16th of February. Casino Estoril which worked as inspiration for Ian Flemming’s James Bond novel Casino Royale is considered to be the largest casino in Europe. The Main Event will run over a number of three days and have a maximum of 500 entrants."

I've had a pretty unlucky first week in February. Just missed out on a $5,000 trip to Las Vegas, then I finished 14/599 in Doyle's Bounty tournament when my JT lost to J8 and I also lost in Event 2 of the FTOPS when I had less than 13% chance of getting busted.

I've added more tournament wins though:

136. 1/50
137. 1/24
138. 1/50
139. 1/50

Bringing the average field size of my MTT wins down to 123.


135th MTT Win

February 03, 2009

Tags: Ladbrokes, Win.

I've played a few more SNG tournaments, which I've never really played before, and as a result I took my MTT wins to 134:

130: 1/24
131: 1/30
132: 1/30
133: 1/30
134: 1/30

I also finished 2/50 in one recently which was disappointing as I had my opponent all-in 3 times!

A moment ago though I finished 1st out of 47 as TheGodfather (I have over 50 different poker nicknames!) to take my wins to 135.

The Average Field Size of my tournament wins now stands at 125.
