I arrived in Belgium yesterday following a blitz 20-hour stop in Luxembourg after I made my way up North from Portugal on Wednesday. After the #pbmasters Opening Event in the middle of the week, the Main Event of the series kicked off yesterday with a 72-entry Day 1A and less than 20 survivors. You'll find chip counts and results all over the weekend on the P.R.O.S. website and I will randomly post photos in my Flickr archive as I am jumping into Day 1B myself today. As usual, the less photos you see, the better I will be doing :)
I spent most of my November in Portugal playing cash games at Casino Estoril and enjoying what this awesome country has to offer. Still no tournaments for now but at least 2-3 Poker tables are running every day with blinds starting at NLH 1/3 and some PLO. The Omaha game is the local highrollers' playground but it's PLO4 only so not insane swingy ... I'll be back soon. For sure! But let's have a look at what's coming up for the coming weeks. In the meanwhile, you can have a look at my photo archive on Flickr.
Greetings from Portugal <3
Sure, I came to play cash games at Casino Estoril but something is distracting me ...
You'll find out what in my Flickr photo archive ;)

I am staying here until late November before a quick hop to Belgium to play the PB Masters Main Event in Spa. My plans for later this year are still blurry but it looks like I will be heading East. Slovakia and Czech Rupublic for the first half of December, Luxembourg at some point soon ... Rozvadov maybe again after Christmas or maybe some more Portugal.
What about you?
To be honest, I was intending to leave Spa after the summer. I am still into it but a couple of things have changed in my plans outside Poker and it looks like I am committed to spend at least a few more weeks (maybe months) not to far from the Luxembourg area where I am involved in the production and promotion of some films. There are good things happening and also bad things at the moment. The point is that there is a lot of shit going right now. Find out more about it under adolfelassal.net.
So yes, I might stick to my Spa base for a bit longer then planned. Time to look ahead then! The Winamax Series are almost over and WCOOP is still in full swing for the online sickos. I am firing bullets here and there but I still prefer a good old live game to clicking.
The weekend cash games are still my favourite games over there but the Poker Room of Spa has a bunch of interesting Poker festivals coming up in October and Novemeber while their September's Challenge is still ongoing until the end of the month. Poker Belgique is planning one of their Poker Belgique Masters soon (more info HERE) and Poker One, one of the most active Belgian Poker crews over the last 2 years, will have its own festival in Spa in a few weeks...
I am not intending to properly cover those events but I will show up to play if I am in the area and I will definitely have a camera with me ;)
