Right then thought it was time for another blog update, has been nearly a month since I have got my arse in gear enough to write an update in this rather flimsy lightweight blog account. I think the main reason is the fact that the poker has been terrible over the past month and this culminated with a £750 loss at Soverign Poker in North Camp on Sunday...was a £5 re buy tourney aswell....ended up doing my nuts in the £50NL cash game.
Played really well in the £5 re buy and only spent £5 total in that, every single time my money went into the middle I was a favourite to win the pot, JJ hit quads by the turn on one board and 88 beat off AQ and QJ AI pre in another. Eventually I lost a big race pre flop with a5 vs KQ after I decided to re raise a weak player that i belived to have a weak ace or kq, kj etc. He called and the flop obliged and duly brought a Q, another case of the flop gods defying pure mathematics (im sure there is a god of flops out there, we have gods for everything else.....so why not!).
I have taken my credit card from 1600 to about £400 then back to £1750 and now it sits on just over 1200. Really need to get this down before James gets here from Czech Rep towards the end of feb so we can play some good live action. Overdrawn in the Bank aswell now which isnt good considering I have just been paid, so will have to rely on the credit card from petrol and monthly expenses.
Out this weekend for a friend's birthday in Fleet, promises to be a night of much mirth and merriment. I enclose the invitation/itinery:
Most of you know already, but we can't do the do-nut thing anymore because the ski slopes are full. Tried over at Aldershot and Bracknell too but no luck. Therefore healthy physical will be replaced by drinking and watching others play sport.
So the new plan looks a little like this:

(*1)lunfast is a cross between breakfast and lunch and is widely considered to be the new 'Brunch', only better and more fun.
(*2) Only seriously cool people can get away with drinking G&T in public (i.e. myself and Stephanie Udall). Just ordering a G&T, let alone consuming one, without being seriously cool first can lead to rapid loss of social value and could lead to a life time of loneliness a drug addiction. You have been warned.

In these cases we will either pay for the game or switch to sky sports news centre for live updates.
