Borat was excellent last night.Arrived home and hit the tables only to suffer another frustrating night on the virtual felt.My Kings ran into flopped quads and then trips 8's before this hand finshed off my last £40 at Interpoker...
It was a loose table with £27 average pots and I'd been trying to keep my head down and wait for a good spot to commit my chips.At least I was ahead when the money went in I suppose....

On top of all that I had to deal with my adsl connection failing again during bubble time at a FT $11 turbo sng.I was in a good chip position and by the time I got reconnected I had 290 chips left.Dealt KcQc I went all in only to be booted again.It's not Full Tilts fault though as I had the same problem on Party later.Decided to stick with Party due to the "disconnect protect" facility but after the nasty quads hand I headed to Laddys 6 max $100 nl where I won this very odd hand thanks in part to Ladbrokes new software.I'd just rebought for $50 so this hand only left me about $90 up at Laddys for the night but it was a relief to finally have something go my way....

Acornman called - $4.00 > Once again I choose the loosest table with the highest average pot size.( $51 ave).Soooted connectors are less valuable at 6 max but I reckoned as it would probably be a family pot it was worth seeing the flop.

Acornman checked>> Not much point trying to steal the pot on a semi-bluff at this table.
NvrAgain bet - $14.00
k0k0n0tz raised - $45.00
Acornman called - $45.00>> Marginal call of $45 into an $81 pot but I knew if my flush or gutshot hit then there was a good chance of getting paid off.
** Dealing the turn: 3 of Diamonds
k0k0n0tz bet - $1.00 >>> WTF?? Is he on the flush draw too?I'd put him on trips or 2 pair.Is that a weak bet I should be raising or is it a Doubleas style weak lead hoping to tempt me to commit?Hmmmmm.
Acornman called - $1.00>> Ok,I'll see if I can make my hand cheaply.
** Dealing the river: 10 of Clubs>>> That will do nicely.No messing about,I'm all in.
Acornman bet - $1.00>>> Shit,I've bet a feckin Dollar!Damn the new software.

Kokonotz actually said he meant to go all in on the turn and I believe him as I thought I was going all in on the river.Maybe laddys will need to look again at it's software or maybe Koko has been smokin' as much as me....
Cleaned out at Inter and down to $260 at Party.Up $90 at Laddys and down $24 at FT after the sng debacle.I'm going to upgrade to adsl max next week to hopefully get a more reliable connection because I've bombed out of four recent sng's ( over the last week) due to it going down and it's driving me round the bend.
So down $70 for the night but not too down about it as swings like that are run of the mill at $100nl 6 max tables where a bit more luck on one or two hands could have made all the difference.It has felt like I've been in poker hell for a few months now ( prob since beginning of Sept) but if one of the worst runs of luck I've had leaves me only $31 down ( since Sept 1st) I suppose long term I can't complain too much.Having said that 3 months with no profit is probably my worst ever run at the virtual felt and I hope that changes soon.
Mrs A is working tonight so I'll be taking a chance on my adsl connection and playing FT's $11k gtd with Miami Mark and hopefully S-man.It's a $24 buy in and last time I used a token I won but with a $3k roll it's about time I gambled a little more and took some more chances.
Edit: Built my stack in the $11k after making a good call with 2nd pair v a loose player.Just gone out after limping with j9,hitting a gutshot on a 10 K 4 Q board only to see the villian's K10 hit a 10 on the river.Niiiiiiiiice! Ok the sick gutted feeling has washed over me.Time to hit those tables...( I did make 2nd in my warm up $11 so not a wasted night yet..hmmmmf)
Ok,Just dropped Mrs A off so it's poker n smokin' all da way...
Here's a quality link
to some of the greatest football and sporting Youtube clips of all time which included this compilation
of some of the late great Davie Cooper's finest moments ( one of my first football hero's).His penalty winner in the 1986 League Cup final v celt*c was my first ever Old Firm game.
