I damned well did

welcome back

so thats another alcohol free weekend in the books :(

to save you some time .... I've been running like a donk and playing like a coo. ty, gn.

the trouble with alcohol free time and actually playing poker, is the simple fact of memory. I can remember every single damned if, but, maybe hand that I played .... most annoying was a reg who called a lot of pre-flop action between me and a random. the reg's hand (KK66 .. wtf, seriously, what the fuck ?) hit a set and the randoms A2 held to beat my A3 .... boom boom.

my main problem when running like shit is tilt. not burnleyMik rant an a raving steaming tilt :) no, no, this is insidious tilt .... too many hands, to much calling of pre-flop raises .... and having to drop 'em all on the flop like a too hot potato. over the course of a few k hands, it all adds up, meh.

oh and there is also the problem of playing too many forum games. I really only should play 2 forum games a week. Iron Man and variation night. not me though, I continue to (mostly) donate at their nlhe donkaments. note to self - knock it on the head you fucking plonker.

so its probably just as well I have hardly played a hand at 10c/25c.

tonight is variation night, mixed 08b .... does that mean it alternates between limit and pot limit ? surely there is no no-limit round .... ho-hum.

damned if you do, ....

welcome back.

alternative post title .... he holds him with his glittering eye - pt 8

had a well weird weekend. probably something to do with 100% abstention from alcohol (actually cannot remember (no pun intended) the last full weekend I abstained )) .... and in my totally sober state, it was a real cat and dog weekend with her .... in fact, her behaviour actually seemed worse. maybe its always been this bad but I've never been un-hung over too notice, fml. damned if you do, damned if you don't, lol.

even weirder. not a single hand of poker played since last Thursday, lol. maybe cost me a small fortune, more likely saved me a small fortune !

ah well, back to the grind and no doubt, the odd game with the forum donkeys :)

oh btw, re the alternative title, you'll have to scroll back 50 or so posts to see what I'm referring to.

strange things happen at the 1.2

welcome back

yeesh, what an epic fail February was.

Lost my silver star status, meh, but added to the bankroll.
added $102 to my 'roll ($35 in bonus whore department, lol) the rest was all playing profit, probably $40 cash and $30 in tourney cash, ho hum.
but it was the manner in which I failed to achieve silver thats annoying. to put not to fine a point on it, I played way to many forum games and not enough cash ! no offence guys (dont think anyone from said forum reads) and as much fun as it is, it is deffo -EV from a selfishly personal point of view :)

deffo gotta knock that on the head and decide in advance which games to play .... not a good start to the month as Iron Man kicks off tonight (grrrr) and I will be playing all 10 of those games.

btw that money added to the roll was all done in the first half of the month with basically fuck all being added the second half, feels like a double epic fail now i've checked ffs.

i also really want to take another crack at the next level up, thats 10c/25c to the uninitiated lol .. I know, I'm such a fucking high roller :)

asked about on the forum and got some sound advice from the guys, one of them a pro, no less.

basically stick to pl08b, avoid the maniacs and keep it tight :) .... watch out for future posts detailing the crash and burn antics of pokerstars biggest fish lol (i've only got 10 buy-ins to squander, eek)

finishing on a high note .... there is some good stuff out there, you jus gotta get off your virtual very fat arse and look for it .... links on the right :)
