the quest

welcome back

so far, November has been a horrible poker month. I'm not broke, but if bankroll was soley dependant on volume .. I'd be busto, lol. For the remainder of the month, I'm taking a leaf (not even a whole fucking page !) out of theGrinder's book.
I suppose a quest is a double edge sword .. do you chase the quest via volume .. certainly possible for sit'n'go grinders as they know exactly how many vpp's they earn per game .. do you chase the quest via profit .. arguably the only way to go for cash players.
I'll have to try a little of both. Sort of. Now my quest is pretty simple. Retain Silver for next month. Normally pretty plain sailing if I spread the volume over the month. Obv I haven't so far this month, meh.
So I'll have to aim for 40 vpp's per session (lol !) Obv any profit that goes with it will be more than welcome !
I'd backed off playing because my 'roll had taken a hammering over the last month or so. Finally figured out why, duh. Playing and paying forum pyramid games equates to $20 a week .. real world peanuts, but a lot for a microstakes bankroll, meh. Next time I may not be so greedy and sign up for one or two levels and not all three !!
Finally, hats off to my mate zagga who is playing hyper turbo's .... yer a sic puppy !!

just another wee dilema - pt 2

welcome back

might as well get this oot the way .... well done noCash who shipped something or other for 12k, jammy coooont, lol.
part 4/4 of his trip report is by far the best entry imo. and i do like his style re the final table .. quote "(No chops / deals / bubble bursters any anything else equally homosexual)" .... awesome :)

originally, this entry was going to be about poker .... and alcohol .... bad hair day, so it can wait until tomorrow ....

before we start, i noticed a huge increase in cash tables available at microlevel, yup , its another road-to-70-billion promo .... its actually quite difficult to exploit all the passing traffic, most seem to have no clue ! so unless you have the nuts, up & down btw, you are going to get called with an overpair, lol, i kid you not !

i see stars had another update .. always wonder wtf they are all about, so i did a little digging (amazing the things you find on the pokerstars website lmfao)(ok, ok so i'm not actually that impressed with their website. read on, you'll find out why)

special offers .. fair enough, i suppose, but wtf is MTT leaderboard doing on there ??

fawk me, it aint that bleedin obvious, yeesh .... PokerStars Software – New Features

I wish I'd never looked ....
Social Sharing – We are adding the ability to post your hands directly to your Facebook and Twitter ....

Notes Improvements – We have made a number of improvements to how our notes system works .... seems fair, if you use notes, obv.

Sit & Go Lobby Revamp .. uh, ok
Sit Out Next Big Blind and Close Table  .. this was a fucking awesome addition
Apply Active Layout .. uh, ok
Rearrangement of Title bar for Tournament Tables .. uh, ok
 Option not to Steal Focus when Typing in Chat or taking a Note .. thats a relief !
Column Settings .. yay !!

wow, wait a minute. the latest updates on stars website are listed as June 2011, wtf ??

I suppose the latest news will prolly be found HERE

be warned .... this thread started in 2006 .... there are now 841 pages of comments ....

just another wee dilema - pt 1

welcome back.

originally, this entry was going to be about poker .... and alcohol .... bad hair day, so it can wait until tomorrow ....

alarm goes off this morning at quarter to six, I'm on the road just after six. correct, she wouldn't entertain an early morning jump start, pfffft. Journey up to York was better than normal, probably due to the early start, or lack there of, pfffft.

Get to work early. wow ! Lots of jokes about the clocks going back promptly ensued, pfffft. Hate it when my colleagues are in better form than me. So brownie points for being early, err no, the only thing you get from my lot are black marks for being late (do they give a flying fuck how long it takes me to get home on a Friday ? err no. Do I give a flying fuck about being early ....)

Work was actually ok, just enough on my desk to keep under the sweetie wives (management jobsworths) radar. Leave work .... and its dark, fuck !

Anyways, off home and then off to the shops for the weeks provisions. Their card reader is not working so I go find an ATM and take out twenty quid, put it in my pocket, get the shopping done, wait at the till, reach into my pocket for the twenty quid and pull out .... fresh fucking air !

yup, its not there .. so whoever finds my money, have a free beer, coooonts.

Days like this make me frightened to play .... nh, gg, ul, fu ....
