Happy 2011 - Travelling and PokerStars Home Games

Happy 2011 everyone

Lets make this year an epic one!

As most of you know I have been travelling since the start of this year, for my project called Tour of Cards. This involves me visiting 52 different countries in 52 weeks and blogging about it. I set up a separate blog for this at If other bloggers can place this url in their link list it would be great.

Unfortunately I had a huge bad beat on Jan 1st when my laptop video card broke and I couldn't find a suitable replacement. Fortunately I was able to find some Indian laptop experts when I got to Malaysia that fixed it with a bit of soldering, so I am now trying to catch up with blogging about what I've been up to.

I am in Singapore right now and will be heading over to Australia in a few days to stay for 2 weeks to play Aussie Millions events. I'm really looking forward to this as I really want to make something happen in the live poker arena, and this would be a good tournament series to do that in.

PokerStars Home Games

What's cooler than being cool? PokerStars Home Games :D

PokerStars just launched a new feature on the site called Home Games. This is a feature where you can create your own club and set up private cash games and tournaments for your members with all the results and statistics recorded by the software.

I was playing around with it before it was launched on .com and it's really awesome. If anyone has any questions about Home Games or needs any help with setting up their own club post a comment here.

I've created my own club with a 250bb fast 1c/2c PLO table for some fun. I'll also be adding some low stakes tourneys where I'll put a bounty prize on myself in the near future.

If anyone wants to join, here are the details:

Club Name: Daleroxxu's Drunk Home Games
