Quick Update

I have eventually moved into my new house, hence the reason for lack of a blog update in the past week or so.

Started to get on with the domestic stuff like painting bathrooms and fixing pipe work etc, bit of a nightmare but i suppose this is pretty standard when buying a new property.

I havent managed to get online at all and it will be about 3/4 weeks till Sky sort out my new broadband package which is very frustrating at say the least.

Did manage to scrape a game together round the murg's and ended up a $400 winner so that was a decent result after being all in with bottom pair that turned into trips on the turn in a 5-10 game.

I will be soon depositing onto DTD poker and have had some excellent customer service from simon and the team there, cant wait to get going with them and try to qualify for their fantastic high roller scheme, will post more on this as things progress.

Anyway time to roll now, will do a better update as soon as i get broadband in the house and will include some photos of the pad including hopefully the new internet/PC setup.


Home Sweet Home

I have managed to gather a little bit of momentum since the last blog, which incidentally was the lowest point of my poker career to date. I lost a further £300 after the £3k and since then i have booked wins for £1.5k, £100, £200 and £500 just now.

More importantly I am no longer homeless! Ship! We exchanged contracts on our house yesterday and set a completion date for this Friday around mid day if all goes to plan. The removal van is booked, my mum and dad are helping us move and everything seems set for a relatively smooth ride.....so would seem. Watch this space for more details on the new house. I will definitely try to post some photos of it and my new internet set up when I have the time and money to sort it out.

Some interesting hands over the past few sessions I will post below, I'll start with a couple of omaha hands for a change.

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1148864 Firstly how about this for a sick one on 1-2PLO. Started with $100 on there and ended up finishing on over 600 in less than 15mins! Nice return.

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1148876 Bit of a sick first call by the chap Perry here, nice pair up on the end.

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1148890 Defensive poker here from me then the value bet on the end when I know im good.

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1148897 I think ive played this one perfectly....so does he! :-)

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1148912 A good decision pre flop then become massive on the flop to lose on the river.

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1148916 Another PLO hand, all the money in when I have the nuts.

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1148922 I get lucky, but with lots of outs twice.

So those are some hands mainly from the +£500 session. The Nitendo Wii arrives tomorrow morning so fcuking ship that! Looking forward to playing baseball and ten pin bowling aswell as tennis etc.

Probably wont update now for a while as I wont have the internet up and running when I first get in the new house. Gonna go for the Sky package with all the channels, telephone and internet, seems the best one around.

On another note I have applied today to be an affiliate for Dust till Dawn poker where if peeps sign up through me they will receive 30% rakeback and I will gain a very small percentage on top of that, watch this space. DTD looks set to become the major live and online site in Europe and the guys there have really done a great job so far in building and promoting this venture, good luck all at DTD.


Biggest Loss Ever!

So, as you can see by the title of this blog I have just been on the receiving end of the biggest loss in one session of my poker career. $6,000 to be exact in one 3 hour session on Betfair playing tilted on the games from 2.50/5NL up to 10-20NL. Not a nice feeling at all coming off the back of major problems with my house leaving me homeless until it is sorted - hopefully this week.

Anyway I will post some hands from the session so you can see exactly how unlucky (on some) and how bad I played (on most).

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1145203 One big draw missed after the pot bet on the turn that i have to call.

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1145205 A bit of 2.50/5 action

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1145206 I knew he had 'nothing' in this hand, thought even my King high was good.....think this was the real start of the tilty feelings

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1145209 More 2.50/5NL action

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1145210 sick river and sick bet by Tilty McGrilty of Tiltsville

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1145212 Another shocking piece of play.....its all coming back to me now in Celine Dion fashion.

Couldnt fins the hand where my KK is beaten by JJ all in pre for $2k with a Jack out on the first card of the flop, that was the beat that really sent me giddy :-)

Anyway dont know what to do with myself at the moment....feeling terrible about my play, I am homeless, the Nintendo Wii that I ordered last week hasn't arrived yet. Marvellous.

Until next time.....
