I guess there are many places a lot worse to be bust as the charming small town of Breda in the South of the Netherlands :) Last night, I played Day 1C of the local Small Ball Series Main Event and it took me 11 levels to finally make it over the starting stack mark with a volatile 20bb stack after beating A6 offsuite with a very powerfull QT suited in a steal attempt from the SB :p
A few hands after that, I was all in again and busted with one of the only real hand of my Poker night: Jacks UTG+1! ... that ran into Kings UTG+2 ... GG! I left the casino with a buddy from Luxembourg to have some drinks in the center while Mark Roovers was busy shipping the side event of the night. Nice one!
Day off in Breda for now or maybe some more Poker tonight to enjoy one of my favourite casinos around but I am leaving town tomorrow for glorious Amsterdam!
Last minute changes for this week! Although I decided to stop working as a #pokernamur reporter after the Namur MegaStack in September, I still intended to come over for the Oktoberfest this week to play cash games and shoot some photography for the Namur Poker room but the board took the bizarre last minute decision not to let me shoot at the casino anymore at all since I am not reporting officially for them.
As a result, I decided to enjoy my time on the BeNeLux roads this weekend starting with the Friday event at the Poker Room of Spa before moving on to the Breda Small Ball Series for the weekend.
Off to Amsterdam from Sunday night or Monday morning after that before the Monster Tournament finals for PokerBelgique in Namur before a few days of family time in Luxembourg and I will be back in Belgium later in November as well for the #PROS Roller Coaster Festival after a short hop to Portugal for the CNP Estoril.
Pokernamurevent.be has been going through some revamping over the last days with a new agenda section and more to come. Go Have a look!
I will be back in the Benelux area from 22nd landing in Luxembourg to start with. Over the coming week, I will most likely spend my time playing cash games and shooting some pictures in Namur during the OktoberFest but not for a proper coverage this time.
