Auntie’s Poker Party

Auntie doesn’t play as much poker as me, but unlike our hero, he is not a compulsive gambler. Although this is a good thing, he does have his own inner demons, but fortunately, impetuosity is not one of them, so he has had a fair amount of success at low limit games. And high limit games? Having heeded my advice, he doesn’t play them.

The screengrabs below are from Party Poker and William Hill, where he spends most of his time nowadays, when he isn’t out chasing the ladies!

A couple of his earlier efforts – at slightly higher stakes – can be found here.

January 17, 2011: Auntie wins the $5.00 + 50c stud tournament on William Hill. The tournament had 32 runners and paid 5 places.

May 6-7, 2011: The late night $1 + 10c no limit hold ’em tournament. Auntie finished in 4th place of 394 runners.
