Heroes and Demons

March was a mad month of poker, cricket and F1.

Despite chomping at the bit to play some large field MTT’s I stuck with cash table play with some comfortable low-variance results. While I am not one to be put-off by downswings, it is great when a plan comes together and most days, certainly all four weeks, ended with a healthy profit margin over 30% on the month.


Four weeks of sporting action provided entertaining distraction while beavering away at the tables. Late at night (UK time) three parsimonious Test Matches were hardly ones to savour, but in the final game England produced some heroics to scrape through with a draw; Matt Prior’s skill and luck, (100+some, runs) Stuart Broad’s reserve (101+minutes without scoring) and Monty Panesar’s nerve (100% concentration on his Cardiff knock) all deserving a mention.

I kept an eye on Australia’s debacle in India, too. Can’t laugh too much as I am well aware, what goes around comes around, but man-alive, the side is as poor as its management. Great to see another legend being born – Shikhar Dhawan: 187 on debut – power to you.

On four wheels, Kimi Raikkonen pulled one out of the hat in the opening F1 GP, and Mark Webber gets my vote for not decking the “Greek peddler” after the second race was stolen from him.

Plans for April: much of the same but with the exciting looking mix of MotoGP and the IPL to keep us amused.
