Monday update

Ah well the weekend was over too quickly as usual.Went out with friends to the Taj in Biggar for a curry on Saturday night.I love Indian food and the quality was top notch.Back to their place where a night of fine chat,drink,smoke,space invaders and even some play money poker ensued.

We were up and away on Sunday in time for me to get back and watch Rangers finally clock up a win in the SPL with a 3-2 victory over Kilmarnock.

After that I watched Man U draw with Everton and then Inter Milan beat AC Milan 3-2 followed by some of the Barca V Seville game.

Hit the tables and realised that I have until Dec 20th to earn 575 poker points at Pokerroom to clear my $96 reload bonus so after bombing out of Ladbrokes freeroll when my AK soooted was beaten by A10 ( 10 was first card on flop) to knock me out in 91st I headed off to PR to start working off my bonus.I was quite pleased with my MTT performance as I managed to lay down a couple of second best hands for a change.I played quite patiently but still didn't steal enough.More thieving practice required.

At Pokerroom I two tabled $1nl full ring tables and made $180 for 3 hours work.

Most of it came versus a villan called xfactr21 who insisted on donating his chips to me at 2 different tables.I was able to follow the play at both tables and it was obvious I'd got to him because he played or raised in every pot I was in.I could sense he was desparate to take me down.I'm writing that as a background to the following hand where I could almost smell his weakness and desparation seeping out of my speakers!

I put him on AK/AQ or AJ.I had originally called hoping to hit my set as I knew if I did then I'd get his stack and was happy I had the implied odds for my initial call.Weak post flop continuation bets are usually fairly easy to read for weakness and his initial 7bb preflop bet smelled of a man wanting to take it uncontested.

Possibly I should have had more faith in my instinct and reraised him but he left after finishing up with 30c left.

Its not always the biggest $$$ money winning hands that are the most satisfying....
