Well i'm off on holiday today, i fly to Cape Town in about 6 hours and arrive early tommorrow morning.

I am spending a few days in Cape Town then going up to Knysna to stay with friends!

I've been looking at what to do and there are a few things i have booked/will book.

1. Great White Shark cage diving (might have to think about this one as my macho image just went out the window with a girlie scream and random flapping when a wasp flew in through my window...
2. Robben Island
3. Table Mountain
4. Sky dive at Plattenburg bay
5. Visit game parks
6. Visit vineyards

I'm taking my laptop so i will try and play some poker while i am away. I have had email conversations recently with the new poker room manager at Virgin. I was asked why i haven't been playing regulaly there and i explained that i didnt like the structure of their heads up games as the starting blinds were high and the levels too short. Even though i play low limits they have been really helpful in arranging this so i might give that a pop while i am away and see how i get on

Thank you Virgin Poker....

I received an email from Virgin Poker today about the prize i won to the WSOP.

I should be flying out on the 28th June to Vegas and i plan to stay for a week, probably in the Stratosphere Tower and playing in the $1500 NLHE tournament, event 49 of the WSOP.

If any of you are going to be about at the same time, please email me or post so we can maybe meet up and have a few drinks!! Also if anyone knows which casinos offer nightly good NLHE tournaments with quite low buy ins that would also be good!.

I expect i will end up getting wasted most nights when i am there as i expect to be in the tournament for about 79 seconds before being knocked out... I will probably either hire a car of fly to the grand canyon and do the Hoover Dam and all the touristy shite...

I just hope i don't get drunk and end up marrying some dodgy ugly american tart in one of the local chapels, but saying that, i think Brittany Spears will still be in rehab...

I'm not sure what to do...

I keep thinking that i need to play at a site that offers me a good rakeback deal.. however...

At the moment i am only playing $20 + $1 heads up sit and go's on Pokerstars. I really like this game on Pokerstars and do much better than playing the same stakes on boss, mainly due to the structure i think..

Now Pokerstars don't offer rakeback bu i can get for example 33% on other sites. I play on average 120 games or so a month so that works out at $40 or so that i could get in rakeback. I make around $300 - $400 a month playing on Pokerstars at $20 heads up sit and go's.

Is it worth changing Poker sites and risk not winning as much just to get the 33% rakeback of $40????
