Souvenirs from Batumi, Georgia
Cash Game Weekend is on again these days on the shores of the Black Sea. Too busy to make it this time but this place is so amazing I gotta go back.
View the photos of my last stay at Cash Game Weekend Batumi last July.
Who said that no administration is getting anything done over the summer months? :) It might have taken them since spring to come over and check the servers of the Belgian Poker app developer Days of Poker but the Belgian Gambling Commission finally dropped by and everybody is now waiting for final validations to come.
In the meanwhile, we have been fine tuning the app's features and I have been working on additional translations as the real money feature will be available in numerous countries.
Find details and the app of course under daysofpoker.com.
My Spa days are not over: Poker room of Spa, Poker One, Poker Belgique ... there's a lot coming up!
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 ;)
More info in P.R.O.S. the calendar under www.pokerroomofspa.com!
September Good Run Plans
That's it, folks! Summer is gone. At least in the BeNeLux area :p
I skipped the Cash Game Weekend Tbilisi in late August after the Spa's Poker Festje as I have been working on some film and photo projects throughout the summer. I am also looking forward to setting a foot in the cinema business this fall. More updates will follow up soon I guess.
More news will also follow regarding the next Cash Game Weekend set to be back in Batumi in late September.
From a Poker point of view, I am still on the low profile side of the Poker media action with a few shootings here and there but I keep playing myself quite a bit. Still cash games. Still PLO! Online, I have not been achieving much ...
UNIBET BELGIUM POKER CHAMPIONSHIP BLANKENBERGE - it's not Portugal but it's still a beach...
I did not get a chance to go back to Portugal since last March and I am genuinely missing it. The coffees in the morning by the ocean, the excellent food, the amazing bikinis ... :p
It's been a tough grind over the last months in the Belgian forests of Spa so I guess I deserve my beach time too! The UNIBET BELGIUM POKER CHAMPIONSHIP will soon be back on the Belgian Atlantic Coast with a €550 Main Event and a bunch of side events from the 29th of August to the 1st of September.
I will be playing the Main Event only and I'll probably be in for some terrasse side events with ocean view.
The Big Wrap got even Bigger
PLO fans, if you thought the Big Wrap that took place at King's Resort this April was a unique chance, think again. Frank Koopmann will be back indeed and the PLO party is announced for September already with cumulated prize pools of €2 Million Euro and tournament addition like the long awaited PLO Hi/Lo for instance.
The full schedule is available in the King's Poker section.
