Bad beat free zone
Thanks Anon for reminding me to post about the US v ROW sng which has been postponed for the moment but will be hopefully be resurrected in the near future.( do they have wi-fi in US jail cells?!).
To answer your other question I am indeed from EK and I’m hoping to get to the showpark this weekend for EK Thistles big game against one of Junior footballs biggest names,Irvine Meadow.( 1pm ko).
I may be joking about the wi-fi in US jail cells but I’m genuinely shocked that the so called “Land of the free” can pass a law banning money transfers from US players into poker sites.I think it’s an absolute disgrace.More like the Nanny States than the United States .
There doesn’t look like there is much danger of the UK following suit but some clowns are already stirring things up on this side of the pond too.
From The Herald:
Mike Weir, the SNP MP for Angus, yesterday called on the government to take strong action, similar to that passed by the US Congress, making it illegal for banks and credit card companies to process payments to online gambling companies.
He lodged a motion at the Commons to push the campaign Weir said: "There has been an explosion of gambling over the internet in recent years, much of it on credit cards. I have previously called for curbs on the use of credit cards but neither the gambling companies nor the credit card companies seem inclined to address the problem voluntarily.
"We need to take strong and long overdue action to tackle the rise of online gambling. Adopting the recent American legislation could certainly help us tackle this growing problem."
Feel free to click the link and give Mikey your views on the issue.
After some quality time with Mrs A some poker was squeezed in last night beginning with a wee turbo sng at Pokerroom followed by a decent night of cash n sng play at Party.Bubbled in one $11 turbo and came 2nd in the other for an overall profitable night.After the excitement of the turbos I sat down with £40 at a full ring Inter game fully intending to fold a lot and chat to Mrs A at the same time.All was fine until I lost £15 after raising with AJ from the small blind and following through with bets on the flop and turn after missing completely only to fold to when the villain led out on the river.I probably overplayed a set of fours a few hands later but I was happy just to cut the deficit to $10.
Ok, just a short post today and I promise not to add any bad beats later...
