Severe Lack of Updates

Evening all,

Not sure if anyone actually reads this anymore but here goes, what have i been upto?

Not much poker is the first answer hence the lack of updates, had the odd £10er here and there but nowt major and no real scores to talk off, having said that i did finish around £200 up for Feb which wasnt too bad i guess.

Went to the casino for one of the lads birthdays was a top night, played abit of roulette and black jack, but was waiting til the cash tarbs opened up and it was juicy than juicy fruit chewing gum i tell ya, had a mad russian to my left who was happy to bang em with any two, caught him once when i slow played my KK vs 2 7 on board of K 4 2, only played like 5 hands all night one badly others ok ish see what u think.

QQ its raised to £3 to me playing 50p £1, i re raise to £9 get two callers, im thinkin no A and im golden first card down A 10 5 so i check to see what action they bring, they both check behind me ffs im deffo infront gotta be, turn 7 and the donk who was last to act gives off the biggest tell ive ever seen in my life pretends to hate the turn looks away and cant hide his full on boner under the table, i check thinking someone is slow playing AK AQ guy bets and boner bloke re raises im deffo done here and pass, other guy bangs and boner guy calls quicker than he prob jizzed his pants, first guy shows 88 boner shows 77 for set and takes the pot.

Other hands i had were KK, JJ, 33 and flop set ever time which wasnt too bad.

While ive been writing this ended up playing some PLO on Betfair with some rakeback ive been given and get one outered right here, you gotta laugh his play is so bad its untrue, have a look for yourself i will name them retard player

January Roundup and happenings....

January might aswell start with the poker first of all as i wasnt around very much and couldnt put many hours in due to various reasons i only managed to show a profit or around £250, as i say not playing very often was the only reason i can remember as i dont recall any bad beats.

The reason behind the lack of hours was the busy schedule, im back at work full time now and not getting home til well after 7pm most nights, and setting off at 7am, aswell as working most saturdays, The only reason i do this much is at the mo i need the money after not having a job for so long the funds are drying up which is never good.

Couple with that the 3 weekends out of 4 we were away in Jan didnt really help either, Had the missus`s aunts birthday down in Birmingham which was a good laugh, fancy dress had to go as Elvis who else.

Next up was my old dears wedding, another good laugh and proper pi$$ up never lol so much throughout the night,

Then the final one was a weekend away in Cardiff for an evening with Ricky Hatton and Frank Bruno, got VIP tickets to go have a drink and a few photos with them before hand which was a top laugh Bruno is still a legend and Hatton doesnt need to worry about his future as when the boxing finishes no reason why he cant go into stand up he is a right laff!

So was a pretty eventful month to say the least, only sour point was hearing that my nan and grandad had bit knocked down crossing the road into town, with my nan smashing the windscreen with her arm and grandad suffering a punctured lung, luckily though they seem to be on the mend which is always good, so fingers crossed!.

Cant wait for pay day then i can start logging some proper hours and some proper profit!

Life Tilt!

Why does it always come and bite you in the a$$?

Just got myself a new job first week went really well and mega enjoying it, just started reffing again and was just getting back into that then Sunday WHWHHHHAMMO

In the middle of the game fall down a pot hole and look a rite donkey with the crowd and every one laughing their sacks off, til i didnt move, then the pain hit me like a smack to the face!

Managed to get back up and attempted to run it off and it just collapsed under me, ended up in A and E for what seemed forever, for some donkey to tell me that no its not broken this time, but we can see from your X rays that you have broken it in the past, as you can see here the break in the bone is too clean for it be new ( i was like wtf, even i know a clean break means a new break!). But no these clowns send me home without as much as an ice pack!

Go to work yesterday and it was sore as fcuk got home and it was all black and the size of horses a$$ so go back to another hospital for them to tell me yes it is broken infact its broken in 2 places! i was like WTF!! what do we pay NI for? these donks obviously dont know their arse from their elbow!

So im potted up until Monday when i go back to the fracture clinic if its still bad then it stays in pot for another 6 weeks! if not then the pot is taken off and im sent on my way with abit of strapping a smiley face sticker!

I know which i want coz ive had this pot on for a day now and its already pi$$ing me right off!

End of Year Review, Aims for 2009

Well firstly i gotta say Happy New Year to everyone, hope you had a great one wherever you spent it.

So 2008 was it a success or not, Well one thing is for sure it was a really hectic year for me, moving house, getting a new job, losing said new job and just other life stuff meant it was a busy time indeed, But on the poker front ive managed to keep upto date of where i am with profit and loss which is a major plus for me, usually i just sack it off and leave it but no kept upto date records of how much ive put on and how much ive taken off.

On that front it shows the totals as:

Sept = +£589.15
Oct = +£1335.28
Nov = -£548.58
Dec = +£510.21

Total = + £1886.06

So if it wasnt for the horror month of November id be up well over £2k which would have been a nice little bonus on top of any wages i was getting. I think looking back i spent too much time messing around at stakes that were peanuts 5c 10c PLO for example, i dont know if its just me but i seem to play worse at lower stakes than i do at stakes i take a shot at, i mean look at October for example i took a couple of shots at the $2.50 $5 games with reasonable sucess, My main problem i feel that is holding me back is the lack of a bankroll.

Instead of a roll i play with whatever is in my bank account, which really isnt the best way to sustain poker it should be money set aside for poker, then you arent playing with scared money i guess if its needed for other things.

So aims for 2009

1. LEARN TO DRIVE ASAP! ( its so annoying not driving and this needs to be sorted asap)
2. GET FIT AND LOSE 1 1/2 STONE ( started taking up sports reffing again and im currently 16st 7lb which is no good!)
3. PAY OFF ALL DEBTS (After Chritmas has taken its toll ive maxed my CC for 2k and into my overdraft of 1k)
4. GET AND KEEP AN ONLINE ROLL ( Earn / Win enough money to be able to keep a roll online and not play with life money)
5. DONT TILT!!! ( looking back at HH its easy to spot tilt when ive just spunked off a load of money i didnt need to keeping this in control will maximise my winnings whilst cutting my loses!)

Well those 5 will do for now i can think of plenty more but id just be boring you all.

Anyways all the best for 2009

Recent Results and Year End

Had a couple of disaster days followed by a few ok days to leave the total standing at +£370.21

With only a few days left before i go to the inlaws for christmas if i can break the +£400 mark that will be just fine by me!

Will do a proper look back on what if anything i have achieved this year playing poker nearer then end of year but what i can see from the records ive kept is that im up almost £1700 from the 3 months i kept records which for someone who plays my stakes aint too shabby.
