a 1500 big blind nosebleed

welcome back, gentle reader

chapter 1 The Nosebleed

followers will know that i am having a crack at the bigger tables, lmfao gotta try children, gotta try :) some may say i dallied way to long at the microlimits, i agree. it was just so so comfortable down there. trouble is, it would take forever to make some decent pocket money there .... and we are, are we not, here to make some money ?
anyone who knows my style will know that i am not overly fond, or indeed impressed, by huge pre-flop raises ....

PokerStars Game #29748731353: Omaha Hi/Lo No Limit ($0.10/$0.25)
Table 'Sycorax IX' 9-max .... i joined this table with $15, ground it up to $22, villain has $22 too

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to ResdentEvil [2h Ac Ah 8c]

JOVdaGRINDER: raises $21.75 to $22 and is all-in
darkstar24: folds encore fred: folds redurb: folds klavuz: folds jenspap13: folds
ResdentEvil said, "fk" .... using most of my time bank, i said fuck, a lot
ResdentEvil: calls $21.75 and is all-in
Piwonka: folds .... all the rest, quite rightly, clear the field of battle

*** FLOP *** [4h Jc 6d]
*** TURN *** [4h Jc 6d] [5d]
*** RIVER *** [4h Jc 6d 5d] [3h]

*** SHOW DOWN ***
ResdentEvil: shows [2h Ac Ah 8c] (HI: a straight, Ace to Five; LO: 5,4,3,2,A)
JOVdaGRINDER: mucks hand .... .... mucked [5c Qh As Ad]
ResdentEvil collected $21.10 from pot
ResdentEvil collected $21.05 from pot

he re-loaded for a full $25 buy-in and three hands later he is at it again. i dont know this player at all, only have 120 odd hands on him and he is -$30. after the previous hand, this is kinda anti-climactic, at least being played more sensibly ....

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to ResdentEvil [4c 3h 5h 6d]

basically, the villain raised pre to $1 and 3 of us call, so four to the flop

*** FLOP *** [4h 2d Tc]
another villain bets $2.50, i flat call, the other two, including the original raiser, fold
*** TURN *** [4h 2d Tc] [3c]
villain checks :) i bet out for $10 and he calls for his remaining $8.25
*** RIVER *** [4h 2d Tc 3c] [Qd]

klavuz: shows [4s 2h Ts Kh] (HI: two pair, Tens and Fours)
ResdentEvil: shows [4c 3h 5h 6d] (HI: a straight, Deuce to Six; LO: 6,5,4,3,2)
ResdentEvil collected $12.25 from pot
ResdentEvil collected $12.25 from pot

eek, and all within the space of 4 hands. my session concluded 6 minutes later, it was late, very late, i had been at that table for 2hrs2mins and bed was calling. having sat down with $15, it seemed like a damned good idea to leave with the $54 now sitting in front of me :)

chapter 2 Who Wants to be a Millionaire

sorry, but this one really really rips ma knittin .... please explain to me what 1 million is, in quantifiable terms that I can understand, so that you get across to me how large a number 1 million is .... think about it, really think about .... and dont give me pish like " to the moon and back, twice" , this has no meaning to me as I have never been to the moon ....

how about this one. to make one million pounds in one year, you need to make two thousand seven hundred and forty pounds a day, every day, for the whole year ....

chapter 3 The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

the good - after grinding my way through umpty thousand 1c/2c hands, i think i can consider myself a winning player at these microstakes. pats self on the back .... :)

the bad - sitting down at said 1c/2c table and before it gets to my big blind, the table has emptied .... wtf ? seriously wtf ? this has happened at several times in the past week .... are these motherfuckers in collusion ? or is the news out ? my big fish avatar is actually the kind of fish you don't want to be swimming with ? fair enough, the regulars "know" i can play a bit and i actually seem to know what constitutes a reasonable starting hand, but come on, its 1c/2c and you sit down with a massive $3.
btw you motherfucking fish who wont, dont, cant play with me .... if you want to learn, you need to play with decent players .... and if you cannot beat me, really, who the fuck do you think you can beat ?
I am not, repeat, not, gawds gift to poker .... i am, quote, "a solid player who is hard to get chips from" .... a view not shared by all my fellow donks .... so, on the other hand, i am, quote, "a fucking fish .... will chase anything for half .... fucking idiot" ....
so there's the two sides to the argument, take your pick ....
personally, I take both as a compliment, so thank you madam :) and thank you sir :)

the ugly - those woman tennis players who grunt .... jesus fucking wept ladies, save it for the bedroom or wherever .... just stop fucking doing it, what a fucking turnoff ....

very much like meeting a beautiful woman in a bar, in Glasgow .... you notice her standing at the bar, a heavenly vision of beauty, you saunter over, trying to look cool, trying not to trip over your own feet, trying not to dribble your been down your shirt .... "hi there ...." .... "aw rite pal, we're gaun tae ra jiggin, ye waant tae bye me an Mary-doll a fukkin beer .... " .... time for a Sharp exit (Harp, sharp to the bottom of the glass:)

chapter 4 He holds him with his glittering eye - pt 3

well, with the aid of the aforementioned nosebleeds and generally doing ok all round last night, i have broken through the $600 mark .... go jesus, go :)
