I Feel Goooooooood!!!

Thanks for the comments in the last entry. You're right...... i've been a miserable git the last few weeks. Even when i've been winning i've felt bad about my game and my results. The reason is simple.... Until the last 3 days of August i was down $400 and facing my 1st ever losing month after 16 months of decent profits. Pretty scarey stuff when the bills need paying but the roll isn't increasing. The last 3 days of the month really saved my sanity though helped by the Primo FT and my September total was $4.5k. Not fantastic but a mile away from where it could have been.
Tonight is the 1st time in a long long time where i feel i've run decent. Top pairs with decent kickers were being called by worse hands and not raised......flopped sets were paid...... i even flopped a couple of straights that got paid pretty well. I just feel i was getting a bit more respect and combine that with running good and you have a happy Cottlad. I've not had the happy, fluffy feeling in my chest when it comes to poker for ages and with luck, it's back! Made a great start to September tonight and am already +$1.3k by playing 1/2 & 2/4 6max by playing for just a few hours. Most of my time has been spent trying to get my roll increased at BiG SLiCK without much luck. Roll there stands at $700.

Got an article coming up in Inside Poker about playing overpairs. It's due to be in Octobers edition. Let me know what you think if you read it.
Been reading a great blog recently by One Angry Kid. I'm sure he's me in a parallel universe. Maybe everyone turns into Victor Meldrew with age? Scares the bejeezoos outa me i tells ya. Have a read
