In Australia

September 30, 2009

I know most people would wonder how, because just being at the WSOPE is a big event, but I wasn’t enjoying being there and I decided to pull the plug and go to Australia. Although Australia is not home anymore, I still have a lot of family there and I was missing them very much. I’m in Australia to visit and play a little poker for the next two weeks.

The PokerNews Cup is on also and I will play in it. It’s a lot more fun and much easier to play than the WSOPE main event. Look for me on ChipMeUp where I have listed my event so everyone can have a piece of my action. I will focus on putting in a good effort for the main event.

I’m happy to be back and enjoying my time here. Look for me in the Sunday Bike Ride this Sunday on TonyG Poker at 8PM UK Time. Play hard and try to take me out, there’s a bonus if you do.

High Stakes - Big Pots

September 20, 2009

You don’t see me playing too many high stakes cash games but I have played some big ones over the years and I’m hoping to give it a real crack if I can find the time. I am getting ready to take on the biggest and baddest of them all soon to see how I match up. I’ve been stuck in the business side of life but I am getting close to having enough time to play much more poker and much more very high stakes poker games.

Make sure you meet me today, and every Sunday, and take me on at the TonyG Poker Bike Ride.

Biked at Unibet Open Prague

September 19, 2009

I am out of the UniBet Open. I picked up K-K in the big blind in the first five minutes. There was a raise and reraise before me and I just called. Two of us saw the flop, me and the button reraiser. The flop was 5-6-4. I check raised on the flop and there was no escape. My opponent held A-A. Short and sweet, there was no help for me and it was bike time.

I am back in Lithuania now and getting ready to go to London and play the WSOP Europe. Here is an interview I did at the UNIBET open Prague:

Unibet Open and Poker Schedule

September 17, 2009

I am in Prague to play the Unibet Open. I have a very busy schedule ahead of me with the WSOPE and then the EPT London. I have listed all of the events I am going to play on ChipMeUp so you can buy a share of me in all the events. I’ll be playing with my and your interests at heart so be sure to follow my progress and I’ll do my best to make all of us some money in these events.

Every Sunday at 8PM UK time will find me playing the Sunday Bike Ride on TonyG Poker. It’s growing every week and I’m having fun while playing this freeroll and I’m very excited about the fact that it’s getting bigger all the time.

I went down to Copenhagen for the EIGA. There are a lot of things happening in online poker. I heard that Betfair will drop their own software and will use Ongame instead. It’s a pretty big blow for iPoker not to get this deal and a huge win for Ongame. This could see many skins wanting to leave iPoker and go to Ongame. Time will tell but there are going to be many big deals in the online gaming industry and who knows what PokerStars and Full Tilt will do? I have a feeling that one of them could leave the USA market if the UIGEA goes into full effect come December.

Anyway, have fun at the tables and play well.
