Lookout WSOP!

Woohoo!! (i love it when my posts start this way.)

Had such a good day. Drove down and collected my car today and i'm well chuffed with it. I'ts got a cup holder and everything! Made it back at 19:45 just in time to play a 9 man sng on Fulltilt. I've been playing in the Hendon Mob league for the last 15 weeks and managed to come 12th. This entitled me to play in tonights SNG for a $4k Vegas package for next years WSOP. $1k flight, $1k hotel, $500 spending and entry into $1500 tourney. I only went and won it! :-) Am chuffed to bits. I think that was my most meaningful/important win to date. I'll have to start practicing my chip tricks now and buy a ridonkulous pair of shades. I suppose i ought to link the mob up too. What a great bunch they are :-)

Cash tables also pretty good since last post. Just crept over the $92k mark and edging towards the $100k landmark.

Happy days :-)

Running Good

I've just bought a car! I've never bought a car in this country before and am quite excited. It's an Audi A4 2.0 FSI SE. It's not new but is still real nice. Thank you to all the fish out there for making this possible :-))))) Maybe next year i can afford that R8 :-) I was really torn between cars when i was looking. Part of me really wanted something sporty as i've never owned a car with any oomph. Then i had to think about golf clubs and got all sensible. Was close to buying a mazda RX8 as they look real nice. Also had my eyes on a classic shape Audi cabrio V6 but i was too late :-( Aah well, i don't suppose i have any need for a pulling car anymore. I pick my A4 up on Tuesday and can't wait :-)

Been running real well this week. Think i've played only 4 sessions and have been $1000 - £2500 up in each session. Just played an hour before updating blog and made a nice $1400. Made another sick sick call earlier too. Another uber aggressive psycho sat to my left and i limp with A5 to his BB. He makes his standard 5xraise and i call. He bets out aggressive on flop and turn then pushes allin on the river for $600 more. The board is 57Q9Q and i call with A5........ he had nowt! hehe $1600 pot! happy days.

Going out on the piss proppa tonight. Paddy's birthday bash. I expect it to get rather messy.
Haven't properly updated my figures since getting my hard drive back. I must get round to it. Running total is now $88,500
Good luck at the tables all. Thanks for reading x

LOL Updateaments

Can't believe my last update was Hull Fair. Am such a lazy arse. I can't even remember what's happened between then and now. At least i'm not dead after my bird incident.
This weeks been a bit mentalist to say the least. Monday was easily my worst ever day and i was stuck for around $4.5k. Most of this being donated to 1 player whilst 2 tabling $5/$10. Every every every single time i hit a flop or got dealt a premium hand, this guy was waiting with a better hand or an outdraw. I've never run so bad. Have spent the rest of the week trying to regroup and had made probably about $2k of it back and then yesterday happened. I don't think that i ran great but i was making some sick sick reads and playing what i thought was close to perfect poker. Was much happier with myself too. If Monday had happened a year ago i would have probably spent a fortnight coming off tilt and dropping another $5k along the way. Nowadays i handle beats and losses much better. They are basically inevitable. No point holding a grudge against anybody either. Just make notes on bad play and smile sweetly :) I still sound off occasionally when i get a real donk calling my pot bet after turn with their gutshot but that's all it is..... a quick release...... these donks are good for me :)
Anyways, back to yesterday. I think i made the sickest/stupidest/greatest play in history lol. It went something like this........

$1000nl - 3 seated - Stack sizes hero $2000 villain $1600 - Villain is uber aggressive - Dealt to Hero Ac9c - Villain raises to $40 Hero calls - Flop 7c Td ks Villain bets $50 Hero Calls - Turn 7c Td Ks (As) Villain bets $300 Hero Calls - River 7c Td Ks As (2d) Villain bets $1200 and is allin Hero calls (heart in mouth!) Villain turns over Js8s Hero wins $3200 with a pair of aces

I didn't even think about the all in call. I don't think i could have stopped myself if i'd wanted to lol. My right finger seemed to have a mind of it's own for that split second....... good right index finger! :-) That hand ($1600) along with others made me $5k yesterday in around 3 hours, 2 tabling $5/$10. Back on track!

My hard drive arrived yesterday along with my files on dvd. Gotta spend the rest of the day transferring them to my new hard drive. Hope they're all there. I've then got to fill in the gaps as my poker figures ceased about 6 weeks ago. I reckon on having 7-15 hours work ahead of me
to update to present day. Deep joy! :( I best go and get cracked on....

Thanks for reading. Will update with a figurey based entry when i've done. Rough profit $78.5k but i've completely lost track of days played. Must be 140 odd by now.

note to self: Sx2+P+FT+BF+66k 20-nov
