I've spent last weekend in Spa for the POKER ONE Festival. My Main Event was experience was a complete joke ... but a bad one :p I busted late in Level 7 of 1B after losing or having to fold holding AA, AA, KK, QQ, JJ & JJ again... the force has been strong with the drawing hands and pairing boards!
The cash game action was fun though with PLO6 Triple Board being added to the Dealer's Choice games. I hope to play more of them soon. Why not next weekend for the M.E.C. Open? The field should easily reach 400+ entries as 1C is apparently already sold out so I am considering to return to Spa to fire a bullet at the Main Event and maybe find some new 6-carded friends. Details under pokerroomofspa.com.
I've posted photos of my POKER ONE weekend in the photo section for those who care.
I am still lost a little bit everywhere in Europe for the promotion of two films by Adolf El Assal who I am currently working with for his upcoming cinema releases.
In terms of Poker, I am still hesitating about where to relocate. Getting back a bit to Luxembourg is an option to be closer to the Ady crew but we don't really know where we're going there for now ... there are some rough rides ahead in terms of financing those enormous cinema projects.

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!
ON THE ROAD
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 ... :)
