Sooo ... 5-6 weeks into the year 2018 and I have been around Europe already :p
The year started with a stay with friends and family in Luxembourg before moving on to Amsterdam for some online MTTs and to Minsk afterwards for the Belarus Cash Game Weekend. The return way brought me over Prague and Dresden for a few days off before ending up for 10 days straight in Namur for late January / early February during the Poker Belgique Big One and the Grand Casino de Namur Winter Festival.

Amsterdam, September 2017
Leaving Luxembourg soon after a short stop following a pretty successful trip to Rozvadov for the German Poker Tour between Christmas and New Year's Eve.
I'll make a short stop in Namur for some video works during one day followed by some online grinding/coaching/enjoyinglifing and maybe a bunch of live PLO sessions in Amsterdam.
From there, I'll be off to Minsk on 11th January until the 15th when I will be flying to Prague to make up my mind if I will make my way to the Dublin Poker Festival or not.
I have recently also updated my Google Poker Agenda with a lot of new potential dates in France and Spain. Some Portugal updates are also to come as well as a bunch of event announcements in Namur ...
To kick-off the new year in an 'all over the place' manner, I found myself hesitating between these two destinations. Minsk, Belarus, for a Cash Game Weekend with furious Eastern chip throwers featuring a Belarus Poker Tour (BPT) stop or Madrid, Spain, for the Levante Poker Challenge including juicy OLE! cash games and not risking to freeze to death if I decide to go for a coffee around the corner.

My 2017 winter trip to Prague is almost coming to an end and it is almost time to fly to Belgium for a photo report of the finals of PokerBelgique's last event of the year, The Killer.
This very short stay in Belgium will be followed by some wandering around to meet both friends and family members in the area before making a winter move back to chilly Czech Republic for the German Poker Tour at King's Rozvadov.
Personally, I really don't know what the plan will be for New Year's Eve although King's is putting on what promises to be a pretty epic NYE night this year and it seems like Minsk will be the first destination of 2018 from 10th to 15th January for the Cash Game Weekend stop combined with the Belarus Poker Tour.
Find these and much more in THE-ROUNDERdotnet Poker Agenda.

Before the summer of 2017, the page was animated by 2 blogs: the Poker tournament blog and the general blog. Today, only the former tournament blog remains active featuring all sorts of updates in one place only. Easier for you, easier for us ... :)
