Who won what, Thursday 4th January. chrisdonkb, loololollo & benc all do well, FTJ cash for Alexa

Afternoon.

This day last year



"Goodness me, bumper numbers last night. Avenger Main topped £10,000, BWBH was over £7,000, the £1k Rebuy made £1,810, £1k Mega £1,760, and the £1k Quickdraw exceeded £2,000. Where did those numbers come from?

Starting with Avenger Main, @Swog was the star, going home with £1,800, just over a week since he won the closing UKOPS. In fact it was almost a PB, beaten only by the £1,950 he picked up for running 2nd in a Sunday Major last summer. Aside from winning last night's Main he also ran 5th in Mega & 4th in Turbo. Maybe this will be his breakthrough year.

In the Mini, we saw a single-tabler get the win, which always fascinates me, as single-tabling runs contrary to popular wisdom, though let's be honest, poker players do say & think the daftest things. Anyway, @X34 came home the winner, with @thisltedu in 4th & @splashies 6th.

Biggest win of the night - £2,440 - was in the super-sized BWBH & went to @69winsalot & was their third big win in less than 10 days - a £5,000 BH on Xmas Day (£1,250), UKOPS 20 on December 30th (£1,550) & now BWBH for £2,440. Won last night's £110 BWBH seat via a £2.40 "Frenzy" satellite. That's over £5,000, very nice.

@Natnug gave himself a week off after finishing as the most profitable MTT-er on Sky Poker in 2022, but returned last night with his first win of 2023 in taking Turbo.

@GREGSTER seems to just make steady money year after year & got 2023 off to a good start last night by winning Quickdraw.

Shoutout to @MaloD who won 7 @ 7 for the 2nd straight night last night. Won it umpteen times in 2022 as well.


That's it for today, short & sweet, it's Saturday & I've got a visit to the golf driving range lined up."

    Really healthy numbers last night, with the £1,000 Quickdraw possibly the star turn, coming in at £1,780. The new £500 BH, on it's third night, did very well too, making £660 which I think is it's best performances yet.

    A lot of players made multi FT's last night, which makes the Report hard to write, &, in all probability, even harder to read. I'd SO love to make a better job, but it's sustainability that's the issue - churning them out 7/365 means it's nigh impossible to keep them fresh & original. Anyway, we can only play the cards we are dealt, so on we go.

    @chrisdonkb got himself off the 2024 mark by winning the Main. Interestingly, @benc was 2nd, & those two clashed again in Mega with the outcome reversed. @Limp2Lose has been playing more MTT's lately & it seems to be yielding results, last night he was 3rd in the Main, 2nd in Sheriff & 2nd in Turbo, a great return from just 6 games played. In 5th was @AlexaAJ who also ran 3rd in Mini, so earned £200 from the FTJ. Has anyone featured in FTJ payments as much as @AlexaAJ? Somehow I doubt it. Incidentally, Sharky reckon Alexa has a 75% ROI over 5,500+ games at an ABI of £20. Those are serious numbers. Last night alone he managed 5th in Main, 3rd in Mini, 1st in a £500 BH & 6th Quickdraw. Nobody is immune from MTT variance, but I fancy he makes money more nights than not.

    @Lee_Boy took the Mini & seems to be much improved. It's their 2nd Mini win in 3 weeks, plus they ran 2nd in an Autumn UKOPS Mini for a PB in October. The omnipresent @AlexaAJ was 3rd with @spearsy136 4th.

    As noted earlier, @benc & @chrisdonkb reversed their Main finishing positions in Mega. Shoutout to @wynne1938 who was a creditable 5th on a tough FT.

    With @Natnug seemingly taking a short break - exactly as he did last January - @loololollo is taking full advantage & cleaning up. 2nd in Tuesday's Main, 1st in Wednesday's 9 @ 9, he managed a win double last night, taking both Sheriff & 7 @ 7.

    Last night's 9 @ 9 saw the thread debut of @nathan0845 who appears to be a low-volume one tabler.

    @Hod4k997 won MidEx & was 2nd in 9 @ 9. MidEx runner-up was none other than @NChanning who seems to be in splendid form as we enter 2024. He always enjoys SPT Brighton so I'm quite sure we'll see him there when it takes place in about 8 weeks time. Think he likes to book lodgings in Eastbourne & walk the 25 miles to & from the Casino in Brighton daily. You may think I'm kidding, but I'm not. Exaggerating maybe, but deffo not kidding. He's one of those very odd people that likes walking. Go figure.

    @Bambus has made a banging start to the year. Won Turbo last night which means that in successive nights he's finished 1st, 3rd & 2nd in Turbo, & threw in a 1st place in 7 @ 7 for good measure.

    Quickdraw went to @mcmoron10 who is not someone we see in MTT reports often as he mainly a cash game player. Has a few decent results though, including 1st in BWBH & 2nd in Summit 10 days apart last August. Plays a lot of Heads Up stuff too, including at the £100 & £200 stake levels.

    @yacca plays Reload - & nothing else - every night so it's good to see him on a bit of a roll, 4th on Tuesday, 17th on Wednesday & 1st last night.

    The new £11 BH went to @steveysee and I notice he's twice made the FT of the big nightly PLO8 this week. I never knew he was a plopper, but I'm obviously pleased to see it.

    That's it for today. Enjoy your weekend, & don't forget to Opt In if you want to get involved in the Stack Builder Freerolls.

    Groan, don't remind me of that day that Dan the Cameraman & I were forced to spend 9 hours following you up & down the Strip as we visited every Hotel...

    Never been so hot & sweaty.

    A ten minute stroll at a snail's pace was the way I remembered it. Couldn't have been more than 102 in the shade.
