I am travelling for 6 months and I am a visitor of Australia and have been since December.This is a great country and I have had many great experiences.It all started down in Sydney when I decided to visit a friend opening a venue for pokertourneys in Cambelltown.I recomend a visit if you go there and you can contact andray at cmu if you want more info.They have sit and go's and standard tourneys.Anyway,I came to Sydney when the BIG Tournies where on at Star City the Casino.This was Dec 2008.I didn't play any tournies because I didn't qualify and I wanted a break from poker.The break part from poker is not easy for a veteran like me
That what it says at cmu if you look at my number of posts
At leasy I am not addicted like a few others
Anyway,I watched some great poker at Star City and suddenly I decided to do a trifecta at the trotters,so I did and I remember I took one horse with the odds 11 times the money and this horse had to come 1,2 or 3.I made 3 single tickets + I had several horses as nr 1,2or 3.Anyway my horse came second and I knew I had the others correct.It cost me 30 AU Dollars to do this and I went to the hole in the wall and the guy started to count 100's.Hey is this the hidden camera or something,anyway,it all ended up in 2245 AU Dollars,wooooooow.Great start on my 6 months trip
Ok,maybe a few words about the poker lately!Since that Finaltable and the winnings of 1350 Dollars,then I have sold full buyin shares because I have not been able to deposit.I don't have an Australian account,so that's why.I have had a few great investors and they have bought it all but for how long when I am only close to the FT's and lately not even that.I had 260.000 in chips in a tourney a week ago and said,now it's gonna happen but in 3 hands all gone.I got QQ vs AK and K on river and AA and the guy hit a str8 and the rest is history.
Without luck then it's not gonna happen.I sat in a tourney the other day and I could honestly not even get a pair when I entered the pots.This was for 2-3 hours and not even a pair and when I tried to bluff(sometimes I do
)then they reraised me ALL IN.Like I said before.I am in the bush playing mostly from my car as a generator to the laptop and it's working great except for those FT's.I use Telstra wireless and it's also working great in most places around Australia.Hopefully I can get a few FT's soon.
I will keep trying and I will go back to my homecountry in a months time,then I will start up my internetbusiness with a game called V75 in Sweden.It's a game with trotters and you have to pick the right combination in 7 races.This is every Saturday and the reason for this trip was a Huge winner in this game.I sold 20 dollar shares and after all the races then each share was worth US$ 7000.I can tell you my Australian friends felt happy but also a bit nervous I think.I mean who is this guy calling himself DIAMONDxxx at cmu? He could easily pull the plug and throw his computer and run with the dollars.I want this business to run for many years and it's no point ripping people off,I rather have great friends + it's to much crap in this world anyway and I don't want to add any %'s to that!Join if you want.I will begin in the beginning of June 2009.Only 20 dollarshares.

I will play alot more poker when I get back (don't I play everyday now??) and hopefully with the help of backers or shareholders.I want to keep going and we all know what variance is in poker.It's up's and downs that for sure.Maybe I try more Live poker and I will try to sell shares when I play.It could be interesting.I have practised a bit while I have been in Australia and hopefully I can make it.I am sure you wonder what I am doing in the bush in the middle of Australia,well I registered a claim for gemstones and this is my next goal!
I will work hard at the pokertables + with my business selling shares in V75 and the trotters and hopefully I will be able to go Down Under again and buy some equipment to set it up and hopefully I find heaps of gemstones as well down the hole.If nothing works out,then I am more than happy to get an investor for my next trip in Feb 2010.I need equipment to start it up.I do this because I need a break from poker now and then or I will burn out and life is full of other experiences as well.It's easy to forget about while we are chasing that FinalTable.Cya later if you have read this,then you have read it all
Good Luck to ALL players from DIAMONDxxx
