fancy a quickie ?

welcome back, gentle reader.

yeah, me too is the answer. unfortunately this past week has been the wrong kind ... only sharp exits from tourneys, meh

well, the table finally appeared here ... lol sometimes i wish i hadn't bothered

last sundays game i played my exit hand beautifully ...
i limped in and the sb completes and ... the bb mrC ... raises ...wheeee :)
so i re-raise all-in, damn, should have flat called and pushed the flop, cough cough
anyway mrC uses his time, eventually calls,
my 99 v his AT ... i hit my set on the flop ... w00t ... he hit his straight on the turn, bugger

last nights britBlogger challenge game had not one but two special guests
non other than mr mookie and canada's first lady
as ever my timing was immaculate ... grrrrr
mookie was short, Kat had me covered

they are sb and bb ... time to make a move, a wee steal, dont mind a caller ... b00m

straight into Kats' gawd damned bullitts ....... ooops

during this i was playing some freeroll MillionPoundChallenge, 300 odd runners and only one $500 prize. anyway, got down to two tables, tried to steal while short and ran into JJ, fawk me

oh there was a good ending to last night. playing pl08 cash, lost half a buy-in with the usual nonsense ... A2 no good on high boards ... QQTJ no good on low boards ... yawn
managed to claw it back thru sheer patience and finally finally hitting a few hands ... my roi ?? a mind blowing 5%

btw if there is one tourney we all like to win, its a forum game. took down the ukff stud8 game last friday, i think ??
played quite well, my hands held up, they folded when i had air :) for most of that one i had the pleasure of teaulc at my table, gg sir.

4 months later

welcome back, gentle reader.

sorry folks, very little poker content but seems i missed a real fucking soup drama elsewhere.
poor old jones got himself ... well, stiffed, almost. i do believe he is sorted but poker4ever (no link as he deleted another blog !) name's now mud !!

elsewhere this fish has changed his mind again ! lol please stop, you're killing me. every time a new idea comes along i jump on board or i use my own variation of said idea, meh ! all good clean fun, generally not good for the bankroll *)

my own poker has been sailing along ...... in a fucking stormy sea, if you get my drift ... up an down like a whores knickers ... am i allowed to say that ? surely its a bit non pc ? fuck it, whatever.
so some minor successes.

battle of the britBloggers - pt1

welcome back, gentle reader.

i have been roused from my lethargy by these fine gentlemen.

Al and mrC and acorn

if you dont already know then pop on over for the full details, but here is a brief summary as i understand it.

3 games a week for the next four weeks which includes the britBlogger as a points scoring game. all games played on fullTilt, yeah the britBlogger is (temporarily??) moving home. its a league system and the two highest points scorers win the prizes ... all expense paid trip to the big smoke for the live recording of some cash game or other :)

btw it all kicks off tomorrow night at 19.00 our time ... wtf mrC ?? ... earlier than usual which, actually, might not be a bad thing. there will be a healthy turnout for tomorrows game as the winner gets an entry into an FTOPS event ... wow !!

all games a measly $5 buy-in usual password "donkament"

dont ask me for help finding these fucking things as i have serious probs finding them myself. the fullTilt lobby is not a friendly place to find a friendly game ... 'stars has us spoiled by showing the tourney name ... but i found it and if i can ... you can !!

oh ffs here .......
