Right then as you can guess from the title of this post I have had another bad run. This time for £1100. Marvellous, another dent on the road to recovery, Probably not going to play now until the weekend or maybe until I am in the Czech Rep next week visiting the hag.

Hands have been sick:

JJ vs AK AI pre for $700, First card King.
Nut straight vs nut flush, most of money in on flop with the straight.
73 vs 93 in the blinds for a $1000 pot flop 739 obviously
and the one to cap it of T2, flop TTA, I bet $50 in a 2.5/5NL game, re raise AI for $250 more, I cover and call. He shows QJ! King on the river.

Bored and fed up of the game now. Time for a shower. Adios.


Back on Track....Home game soon

Ok, Im back to where I was before I went completely giddy on the 10-20NL game about 2 weeks ago. Well actually slightly better off as I cashed 425£ off Sky Poker and 1400£ off Betfair after several decent sessions there. The last session was a killer tho as I bluffed off my first $250 on a re raise pre with A9 and a push on a 3 hearted flop and have my opponent call with AQh for the made nut flush. I then went onto the 5-10NL game on two tables and proceeded to take the roll down to $900 from $2000. I then went on a roll and nailed very decision correctly and take a big swing back up to $3500 total roll before missing a straight and flush draw in a $1000 pot and decided enough was enough and came off moments after.

Start my new job tomorrow morning, having to be in Reading for 8.00am isnt something that i am looking forward to after a month of gardening leave and of course poker. I also managed my first half decent live result on Thurs with a £200 profit obtained from the Stanley casino cash game which included both omaha and irish aswell as NL and PL Holdem.

I shall be hosting my first game in the new house very soon, be sure to listen out for news on that. Should be a good one and quite an occasion. Blinds will probably be 2-2 and we will play PL Holdem.


Big Swings....Like the ones in Giants Parks

Time for an update people.

As you can see i am finally back online in the new house, which is good and bad news. Good news that I can use the internet to help me with the best man's speech for Petes wedding tomorrow....good luck mate by the way sure you and Offilia will be very happy together in your new house aswell. The bad news is that i have been so excited about playing that i have done my absolute pieces on 5-10 and 10-20NL holdem. I have been very tilted over the past 3 days doing crazy thing like shoving j2 and q3 AI pre against JJ and KK. I have had some beats along the way too AA beaten by 84 when the river brought in the straight, qj vs AsJs on a queen high board with 2 spades. Immediate service on the turn for another substantial pot.

Finally today i have managed to claw back some of the deficit, £1550 of it, still about 1.5K down tho for the first period in the new house.

I will be loading up my new DTD account very shortly, probably at the end of this month when I have received my Betfair rakeback. I have had excellent customer service from DTD after initially having some problems with depositing on their site. Twice Simon (Trumper) has called me and had a chat about high roller schemes, rakeback and helping me with my deposit. I really think they are doing a great job there up in Nottingham and hope that everything goes well for a start in earnest later this year for the new club.

So, I'm in the new house and have been here about a month now. Lots of painting and re decorating has gone on. New light (front and back), house number, bathroom painted and shower curtain on and at the moment I am in the middle of laying a ceramic tiled floor in the kitchen with Michelle's brother Alex, It looks really nice and I will post some pictures very shortly.

I am about to leave for Finchampstead, the big game is running there and is a mixture of Holdem, Omaha and Irish, big pots and loose action. I may not play, I may just do the taxi-ing of Peter to mine before his wedding day tomorrow.
