Scotland tank England!
Frustrating night at the tables last night.Played at Party for a couple of hours and broke even after being behind for most of the night.I should have packed it in after that happy to be card dead but not down.Instead I moved to Interpokers 6 max tables and hit the £1-£2 nl.I was playing well until I slow played A2 sooted from late position,caught an Ace and two on the flop but didn't bet enough post flop allowing Mr A10 to catch his ten on the turn to take me for a buy-in.I was angry at myself for that one.$198 down.
Moved over to Ladbrokes for 10 mins at 4am and won $10 before hitting the sack.Usually if I'm down a couple of hundred I have a word with myself and go and try and win it back but last night I was so tired I didn't feel like playing on.It was probably a good move not to.
Got tonight to try and rescue what's turned into a poor week but overall last night despite playing one hand like a fish I felt I kept my patience well considering the utter junk I was being dealt.Too easy to say stuff the poor cards and start trying to push edges that aint there to turn things round.
Overall not too down about it.It does seem though that every time I step up a bit the cards kick me in the junk or I make a donk play that costs me.That's what my bankroll is for I suppose....
I read at Sir Waffles site about Zee Justin having his accounts closed at Party.I've read Zee Justins blog a few times and had great admiration for his consistency and results so it was disappointing to read that he's a cheat.His arguement that if 2 of his accounts ended up at the same table at an mtt then he would open 4-6 more sng's to distract him is just a joke.I've no doubt he's probably 1000 times the player I'll ever be but cheating is cheating and the sooner players like that are booted out of online poker the better.
It did console me slightly that while I'm down $188 last night Justin has had $100k removed from his accounts.One bad beat that is well deserved.
Thanks to PWS ( Prince William soundalike) for the complimentary comparison to the French male model Jaspur Car'ot. A bit worrying that he finds me that attractive but I'll take it as the compliment I'm sure its meant as ;-) Did Arsenal lose again today btw?
Nearly cracked another rib laughing after reading The Poker Champ entry for Febv 23rd.Not sure if he's just a clever writer with a funny online persona but this line is pure poker blogger gold. "I already got one of my call center chumps buying me cokes all day so I'll teach him poker at lunch - AND HE WON HIS FIRST PLAY MONEY TOURNAMENT LAST NIGHT! ".
I mentioned aiming to hit $5k and move up but as usual real life demands are butting in.Mrs A wants me to buy a £50 pressure washer for the car.I also want the new PS2 game "Black" aswell as a few more movies for my PSP.My Johnny Cash collection is far from complete and I'd love to add some of his highly aclaimed later cd's ( American Recordings etc).
Didn't make the EK Thistle game today as Mrs A needed Acorn taxis.I may watch a bit of the Scotland V The Auld enemy ( England) rugby.I'm not much of a rugby fan.Egg chasers! I hear Prince William likes it though...
Edit: I've always thought Rugby should be used to define which sporting nation is the finest.18-12 to Scotland today at Murrayfield.What a game!
England sent homeword tae think again! Ya beauty!
Enjoy whats left of the weekend and good luck to Rosie in Laddys $100k freeroll.
