Last night wasnít just a good night, it was unprecedented. This is the first time Iíve played three multi-table tournaments and cashed in all three. The small tournament, $6 stud, was the best, because I won it; the third time Iíve won this tournament, this time on WPT, the previous two occasions were on its sister site, Party Poker.
Admittedly, it was not that difficult to cash in the Ladbrokes freeroll, and the sums involved were not exactly, well, big, but better to play small and win than play big and lose. Of course, if you play for free, you canít lose even if you donít win.

August 15, 2012: WPT Poker, $6 Stud, 35 runners, 6 places paid. This guy made the mistake of raising quads.
Winning the $6 Stud - not for the first time. 35 runners, 6 places paid. Our hero turned down a deal heads up on the final table
[The above article was published originally as a blog with 5 screengrabs on August 16, 2012; 4 of them are reproduced here; one has been lost forever; it was a screengrab from a freeroll on Ladbrokes, probably of either my final hand or of the amount I won. For the record I finished 123rd of 1,452 runners winning E.24 of the E200.00 prize pool. The caption of the first screengrab has been corrected from aces full to aces up. This article is not to be confused with A good night on the tables at Party Poker].
