Just 1 Reason????

Why you shouldn't play on an 888 skin? hehe. My 50nl experiment/spinup continues and my original rungood got even better. Have played about 9000 hands now and will be looking more seriously at nl100 soon. I just hope it's as mental as nl50. I would say the level at 50 is somewhere were it was at other sites 3 years ago lol. Free money basically.

I can't expect such a good winrate to continue i suppose altho i know it's soooo crushable. I'd go as far as saying there's a decent living to be made just at $50nl with a decentish volume.

Yes this is a bit of a plug for you to click the banner on the right and signup to LuckyAce but i wouldn't be posting this if i didn't think a) the game there isn't as soft as shit and b) the bonus wasn't top drawer. As i've said before..... deposit $400, get $100 insta bonus and if you want, insta withdraw the $400 so you have $100 free money to play with which is the amount i started this experiment with :)

I haven't played much elsewhere since the last post. I was running so bad i decided a few days off (at least) would be a good idea. The tennants have moved out of my rented house too and after 7 years there's shit loads of work to do so poker will have to take a back seat for a while. Whole place needs gutting and redecorating.

Played the PFU Session and THMF league last night and was bridesmaid in both. Took Joe and Barny outa the Hendon Mob game though for 2 bounties and have moved up to 4th overall. Thanks to Joe for also joining our PFU game. PFU was an invite only forum but we've now opened our doors. The old policy ensures we've got an awesome base of players and contributors. The weekly Session game is a league where we play 20 weeks with a percentage of the buyins going towards decent live buyins for the winners. All players who play enough games then get a slice of the action of all the winners so it's a great community game and gives the chance for some to play in major events by playing in a $10 game. Feel free to join PFU and read more about the Session in the official threads. We also have PFU radio that provides live railing, commentary, banter and tunes. It's pretty fantastic.....

HSP Mondays

It's beyond funny how bad i've run the last 5 days at Sky. 15 buyins in 1500 hands seems like it should be impossible. Every flop i'm beaten by a set. Am seriously thinking of ditching Sky as i don't feel it's random...... this happens EVERY month for about a week. Can it just be variance? Yeah maybe just a supersik DS but if i'm doubting the integrity of it i maybe should at least take a break. It's not like i'm a 1st deposit donk crying cos he lost a few quid..... i've played lots of hands at lots of sites and have seen upswings and downswings at all...... never anything like this though...... maybe i need to buy a tinfoil hat? Anyways, gonna move a bigger chunk to LuckyAce and hopefully run a little better.
Other news.... had my Toe operation last week..... pretty horrific and the before and after pics are too graphic for here. Went to have the dressing changed today and about time too as it was ponging a bit.
My tennants of the last 7 years are moving out tomorrow so i'm across there making sure they leave the place in an OK state...... god knows how i'm gonna get rid of the smell of chinese takeaways lol..... actually, i quite like it :) Gonna have to find some more tennants sharpish as a rentless month this month alongside a sicko downswing = worrying times :/
The LuckyAce insta $100 bonus offer is still available for those that want it..... can't say no to free money :) Look below for further details or drop me a line.

Here's this weeks HSP to cheer me up...... Please let Negreanu lose another pull-up lol.

Sorry for the blatant advert but ffs....... $100 for you!! :) Oh, and have a $5k freeroll entry too :)
Good luck

Free Poker + Donks = Sexy Spinup

So, the 888 network made a slight cock-up last month by entering me, and a few other luckies, into 3 x mtt's per week. My roll there stood at zero but after a series of minicashes i had $100 before they realized their error and cancelled our freebies. I played 9 sng's and cashed in them all....... followed by some 6max $50nl. In a very short space of time i had made $800 and am on the way to having a decent roll there again. The software is much improved since last time i played there but the level of play is still spectacularly BAD!!!! The lack of rakeback means it's not swarming with sharks but for regular players there is a decent rewards programme that seems similar to Pokerstars whereas the more you play, the higher up the ladder you climb, and thus making more points that can be turned into cash. So, now i'm gonna really try and build a roll on LuckyAce which is an 888 skin. I'm hoping the standard of play i've seen at 50 and 100nl continues comparatively up the chain. As a general idea, stats-wise, when sat at 50nl 6max the general opponents will comprise of 1 decent player, 2 x 22/11's, 1 x 45/16, and 1 complete maniac. Time and time again i'm seeing these awesome tables. Here's my HEM graph for just over 2k hands :)I know variance is an issue but i really think i've re-found my new home. So am just gonna try build my roll up to $200nl level without depositing and see where we go. I'll keep updating with the journey and see if we can't do another zero to 5 figure spinup which would be number 3 :)

You'll find the luckyace link if you look right>>>>>>>>>> I know a lot of sites brag about how soft their tables are but most are usually just trying to get you to play there. You can take it from me though that this place is still swarming with fish when other sites/networks are full of rocky regs. There's also a $5k freeroll for noooooobs :)
Other news..... well, i'm in for surgery on my to on Thursday. It's been gammy as hell for months now after we got stranded before xmas in the snow and the taxis stopped running. This resulted in me walking 5 miles home, in 6 inches snow, in the most ridiculous pointy shoes. Ingrowing toenail resulted and after 2 months of self operating i took the plunge and went to the doc..... who actually gasped when he saw it lol. So, am losing my entire nail on Thursday and will have a bald big toe :( Not lookin forward to it. I would post pics but ffs....... it's pretty gross!!

Still not sold the house and have had builders in all last week giving estimates on renovating into 2 flats...... more upheaval and worry. Just sell already!!

Other than LuckyAce, poker's been going OK this month up to now. Around +£2,5k with a week to go. Gonna have a big push this week as i haven't played loads up to now. Maybe after 2moro though as it's our wedding anniversary number 2...... and they said it wouldn't last! :)

Bit of a sad month when the highlight of February for me was pancake day :( Although i do make an awesome pancake! I'd hoped to continue January's rungood but almost immediately the cards dried up and the coolers kicked in. Up 500, level, up 500, down 300, etc etc etc. I played more hands than i've done in quite a while nearly all at nl£100. It shouldn't shock me anymore when my aces get cracked in a 3bet pot when on a flop of 235 opponent flips 46... Got a nice little bonus late Feb with 3rd in an mtt for £650 and managed a small profit in cash as well as a semi decent points bonus so not an entirely wasted month. My goals for March are to play more donkaments and spend more time on hands rather than insta-clicking. I gotta start playing back more rather than rolling over which is what i fear happened in Feb after a shaky start. Off to Luton Friday for a couple of days live poker.... there's a £75 F/O on Fri night followed by another £15k Sky Poker Tour game on Sat.
Bought a new car in Feb.... well, new to me anyway. I've officially become old and got myself an estate.... a sad moment indeed :( At least we can now take all the pointless junk with us wherever we go with ease :)
Oh.... have applied to be on Bargain Hunt too so fingers crossed on that one! So balla!

Month total +£2350
