2019 London live cash games

Cliffs

  • Young kid trying to start a new career in London
  • Will be moving down within a few weeks
  • Looking to make some money on the side taking donations in casinos across London
  • Very recently out of ~2 year relationship so free to play lots of poker

PS - I'm strongly considering lining up a grad scheme for September and heading off down under so there's a good chance the thread gets renamed to Aussie live cash games.

Re: 2019 London live cash games

02/02/18 - 5 hours 15 mins, +£610

It feels really good to get off to a good start for the year. My local casino is pretty small and struggles to get multiple tables and the action is pretty poor normally. However tonight was the anniversary of the room opening and they're giving away £500 p/h for the high hand which meant that there was up to 16 tables going at one point which is unheard of. At last years anniversary I lost £1300 so it feels really good to book a substantial win this time round.

I'm not sure how much I want to talk about my personal life here but I'll say this. The breakup I mentioned in the op was within the last few days and properly confirmed last night. I was absolutely head over heels in love and it came out of nowhere so has really hit me hard. Normally I'm really talkative and friendly at the table and I feel I'm pretty good for the game. However, tonight I really struggled with this at first and even put my headphones on to watch a short YT video. As soon as it finished though I made a conscious effort to put them away, engage the people around me and I started having a much, much more enjoyable time and it really helped to take my mind off of the breakup. It also helped generate some more action in what was otherwise a quiet game.

I might post a HH I think I misplayed tomorrow when I'm on my computer and can properly format it. I just wanted to post an update as I'm sat waiting for my train so needed to occupy my mind somehow and it
Helps to write down my thoughts. Any advice/ well wishes more than welcome.
Happy g

Re: 2019 London live cash games

Tapatalk is playing up and I can't see what I'm typing on that last post.

It was meant to say that it helps me to write down my thoughts and also occupy my mind in a down period.

I'm really pleased with how I played tonight and feel my mental game was on point which is really pleasing given the circumstances.

Any advice/well wishes more than welcome. I'm going to head down to London this weekend and look at flats so might try to play a session then.

Gl at the tables all.

Re: 2019 London live cash games

GL mate.

I recently moved to London as well and thinking to maybe add some live play to my grind.

Are you(or anyone) familiar with what live stakes are available in the area? Everything I found so far was either 1/2 or 1/3. Are there any regular 2/5, 5/10 or 10/20 games around?

Thanks

PM'd you.

Haha I'm not expecting to win the lot but I wouldn't complain. Birmingham games are just depressing of late.

@jossodee I'm probably not the best person to ask. I know 2/5 runs somewhat regularly at the Empire and Hippo, and I think the Vic has bigger games but they don't run particularly often.

I'm heading to London tomorrow evening and hoping to look at some flats over the weekend. I'll try and fit in a session or two while I'm there and hopefully not punt off.

Gl all

Re: 2019 London live cash games

I went down to London to do some flat hunting which is looking to be a much more difficult process than I originally expected. As I don't know anyone looking for a flatmate I'm having to look on spare room and other similar apps and I'm finding that anywhere worth viewing is often taken before I can view it, leaving just the really expensive and really bad places left. Not sure what I'll do going forward but hopefully I'll have a chance to look at some more this weekend too.

Poker wise, I managed to play a really short 1/2 session on Sunday evening before getting my train home and finished +£600. The most notable hand saw me squeeze AA otb and hold vs J9s that x/j on a J87r board roughly £400 effective. Both sessions this year have just been me having the best hand and not getting cracked so hopefully that continues.

Re: 2019 London live cash games

Ty all.

Not much to report, just chugging along trying to sort a job/flat and stay busy. I haven't played any poker since last Sunday as the games aren't worth the long journey.

Has anyone ever played in Munich? Potentially visiting a friend there soon and would like to play some poker, does anyone have any recommendations where to play and know what stakes run?
