Another night at the tables where all I played was Sng’s and ten minutes of break even 6 max nl.
The $5 sng’s are quite soft at Inter but as the one who set the $50 Inter challenge I really need to be putting in some hours at the 6 max tables.To be honest I started the challenge as a way of motivating myself to play within my roll with my $50 and build it back up past $1k but the truth is I really don’t have much enthusiasm for the $25 buy in 6 max tables anymore and the thought of a 2-3 hour session at that level has no appeal at all.Despite that I refuse to move to $50 or $100 nl at Inter until my $172 roll can stand it so looks like some grinding will have to be done and soon if I’m to have any chance of catching Mias Dad $ 336, Rosie $192 and Juice on $180.
Played four sng’s last night and was bubble boy in the first mainly due to playing weak poker when down to four as I was too keen to be In The Money for the eighth game in a row.Got my game together and won the next one but didn’t do much in the last two and went to bed far too late at 1.30am.
Stopped off to buy the new Techwood 37” I mentioned yesterday but I drive a hard bargain and told the salesman I would only buy it if he threw in "Outrun" for the PSP for free.The manager said I could get the game for half the £35 price but not free so I walked.I'm not too bothered about the game and may go back and just let them waive the £22 delivery charge instead.I wasn't folding today though!
I nearly bought a car a few years back but the private seller and I were just £50 apart on a £5k deal.He refused to back down so I told him to forget it and walked away then too.Ended up buying a Volvo 480 Turbo instead and its solid build probably saved my life in a car crash a couple of years later.What's for you,wont go by you as my Granny used to say.
Still waiting on my cashout cheque from Inter but at least my new 17” monitor arrived today.I’ve seen a wireless enabled laptop for £349 at the same online retailer ( dabs.com) and the first thing I did was find an online currency converter to see how many $ I need to make to be able to afford it( $642).Time to grind!
One good thing about being a Step Dad is that I get to behave like a big kid sometimes.( not that I didn’t before). I read in the paper that pouring a packet of mentos mints into a 2.5 litre of diet coke caused a reaction that created a 15 foot high fountain of cola.Well I bought two bottles of Coke,10 packs of mentos,drew a gathering of local kids and……nothing happened at all! ( well it did fizz up bit).Not one to waste anything at least I was able to charge the kids for a glass of new Minty Cola….
I was trying to be kind of neutral about tonights Sweden V England game but I made the mistake of listening to Talk Sport on the way home and their presenters have England playing Brazil in the final already before the final group game is even finished so for once in my life I'll actually be wanting ex Semtex FC striker,Larsson,to score a few goals.
Mrs A ( sporting new boots and watch courtesy of poker cashout) has just put out the home made macaronni so that's all for today....
