as ever, its been a while.
basically been on "holiday" for the last week or four up in Newcastle, lol. Still as barking mad as I remember it. Been working 10 & 12hr shifts, then hit the hotel bar, then hit the toon .. fuck me, am I getting to old for this shit or what ? The guys working for me obv took pity on me and basically would not let me put my hand in my pocket .. just as well or my "entertainment" bill would have paid off the national debt.
So online poker volume has been virtually nil .. but I did play LIVE .. not once, but twice.
are we paying attention Mickey Boy ..
anyways, about 3 weeks ago, or was it 4 ?? it was deffo a Thursday night, lol .... played a small MTT in the G-Casino. It was a £30+£2 double chance freezeout and I walked away with £320 , gg moi :)
then a couple of Sundays ago the tourney was cancelled so they opened up a 50p/50p cash game .. I sat in with twenty quid and several hours later I cashed out £120 , gg moi :)
now. a few years back I was in the G with blokes from the forum, some of whom played a cash game after our tourney .. and a wee local Chinese guy was playing .. a rather volatile player but it was as funny as fuck to watch when he blew up and stormed off from the table .. guess what ? the same bloke sat at my cash table for a few hours, lmfao.
all those hours and I only remember a few hands :) now lets see ....
on an x7x7x board I flat called the guy on my lefts flop and turn bets .. and check raised all-in on the river .. he showed his KK and asked if I had the seven .. when I tabled 77 he just stared .. finally blurting out "how the fuck did you check that river ?"
I also remember my kings holding up against AK .. and speaking of local Chinese, there were three of them sat at the table at one point and I eventually got involved in a hand with Mr Volatile's buddy .. he flat called behind all three of my bets and with three spades on the board I thought I was beat. When I tossed my 34 spades on their backs the guy on my left shouts "he's got the flush !" good enough to beat his TPTK , nh, gg moi.
For the record, I gave the whole £320 to the Mrs and I also gave her fifty quid from the cash game :)
and time marches on .. the first of March already .. since yesterday was the 29th it seemed like an appropriate time to play my usual beer fuelled online donkaments, lol. So for the month of March I'm going to try alcohol-free online donkaments .. interesting times indeed.
