Last night, I went along to my first Australian Poker League
Tournament. They have free-entry tournaments all over the country and they have them five nights of the week here in Bathurst. I had no idea what to expect, only information given to me from a work colleague, Steve Gibbs.
So, I went along to see how I'd go. I didn't go too badly. I definitely wasn't first out. I won the very first hand on my table with a flush and that's as far as my luck got. However, when I finally did go bust, I had made half way through the night - so, out of 101 starters, I'm pretty proud of that. Here's a page showing the final places
. It lists me as 93rd, but that's because all people 17th and higher are listed in order of APL Member ID.
I'm quite excited about it now, I had a lot of fun playing and I'd like to go to more. I think I'll go every Wednesday nights at the Leagues Club, and I'm tossing up about going to the 2nd tourney they have on Sunday nights as well.
