Been a while since I checked in here at FTP, so thought I'd leave a quick post to update you on my shenanigans. Since my last digest I had news that my good friend and NPF moderator Dave Collins recently suffered from a heart attack whilst over in Majorca, I understand he is now fit and well back over the UK. I have gave him my best wishes in a thread over the NPF, but just to repeat that all at FTP wish you a speedy recovery and were delighted with your progress mate. Guess we can rule out another all night Bill's Saloon session on the vodka redbull and jagerbombs ;-).
I've booked up to head back over Las Vegas on November 9th as kind of an early birthday gift to myself, I'm travelling alone but upon arrival sharing a room with my good friend Dominic Mahoney over at Treasure Island. My journey is kind of inconvenient as I fly Newcastle > Amsterdam > Los Angelas > Las Vegas, with a total travel time of 17 hours leaving Newcastle at 05:55 and arriving Las Vegas 15:11. This will be my ninth visit and I'm excited as I was on the build up to my first, there is a bunch of Teesside boys (10 in total) staying over at Riviera notably Ian Woods, Brett Angell, and Rakesh Gupta who I'll hang and kick back with whilst in town. Ian Woods has reserved a table on the night I arrive over at the Top Of The World Restaurant, Stratosphere which I've heard and read good reviews about, so that should be a great way to start the holiday.
There are a few good tournaments in October;
Saturday 1st October: Gala Teesside £100 NLH F/O “Poker Player UK Tour”
Sunday 2nd October: Aspers £100 NLH F/O “£10,000 Guaranteed”
Tuesday 4th October: Circus £50 NLH F/O “£6,000 Guaranteed”
Saturday 8th October: NPF Championships “Circus Casino”
Saturday 15th October: Gala Teesside £250 NLH F/O “Main Event”
Saturday 22nd October: APAT UK Team “Mark representing NPF”
Then the final weekend in October (Friday 28th October) I'm away to Amsterdam with my mates away from the felt, taking the DFDS ferry from North Shields. So lots to look forward to in the foreseeable future, with hopefully some run good along the way.
Take it easy
