Well Done Juice!

Congrats to Juice who took down Britbloggerment 5 last night with a fine performance.I do laugh at the blogger game reports I read from both the UK and US games.The winner is usually either a total luckbox cardrack ( see Al Elevens two wins!)according to the crowd or a suckout king.Luckily for Juice he managed to be both.( just kidding mate)

Once again I was fairly card dead throughout ( a fine excuse!) and only played a few hands.Ak twice took down the pot and I folded to Rosies aggression after leading out with 76 on a scary 6 high board.Blinded down, and without any room for error, I was delighted to see Burnley Milk turn and go off ( milk eh!) out the door first before I had to stick all my chips in the middle.Nice walk of shame mate!

I didn't go out on a suckout, so going on the theory in my first paragraph ,it must have been to a total luckbox! Actually I'd just been moved a short-time beforehand so I can't confirm the luckboxery of the villain who took me out when I raised all in with AQ ( just under 1000 chips) and was well beaten by 88.I forget who it was but nice hand and no complaints from me.

Thanks to all who made it and to the first timers who I hope were made to feel very welcome.Chipper certainly seemed to enjoy himself and nearly took it down for our cousins across the water,finishing a fine 2nd overall.Anyone from the US/Canada fancy trying to go one better next week? Bring it! ( as Step A would say)

Al Eleven ( did I mention his early finish yet?!) and I hit a couple of $15 games after and I bombed while Al took one down.

I then had a blast watching Al at $200 nl 6max where he played a fine aggressive game and was also lucky enough ( told you he's a luckbox!) to run into a tilty donator.This fish lost a stack at Al's first table by calling an all in with A10 v KK.The fish left and Al followed my advice and hunted him down to his next table ( I was still in a $15 sng and wish I'd joined myself now!) and took him out when Al's 77 held up against the donkeys Q9 sooted.( all in preflop for over $200 from memory).Made for fine viewing and I'm looking forward to Al's commision cheque for the fine financial advice given.....

The lesson is table selection,table selection and more table selection.Follow the fish!

I wasn't having too much joy myself at $100 nl and felt like it may be another "one of those nights" until I won $50 with KK.I was all in on a Q 8 8 flop v AQ and my hand held up.

I left my $100 nl table up a bit too and was happy to go to bed with my 'Stars roll over the $300 mark again.

Al's play did inspire me though.Why am I pansying around at $50 nl ( cos it's safe and I'm happy with my 8bb/100 rate)when I have the roll to play $100 nl and enough to at least take a shot a little higher?For more inspiration see Ed's incredible run over at 88%.

I read Burnely Miks post the other day about feeling like he's treading water at 'Stars and to some extent I feel the same.I began with $15 there and yes I've won about $275 over 185 (aprox) turbo's but it's hardly setting the heather on fire.

I'm considering using $1k as a flexible take a shot type bankroll.I was thinking along the lines of making it flexible, using whichever account I fancied at the time and moving the money around into a virtual take a shot roll.That does seem complex though so I may just have a go without complicating things so much.I reckon I need to dig Doubleas Pressure Poker book out again as he had a fine plan taking shots.Watch this space....

If I'm going to play more cash then I also need to consider rakeback and bonus options.I've never pursued either as I've always considered the quality of the gameplay ( or lack of quality to be precise) to be my deciding factor.Party and Laddies seem to have the juciest cash tables at the moment and I have no bonus/rakeback with either.

Ok,that's more than enough for a Monday.Back later in the week...

cardrack = luckbox and yeah Step A loves saying bring it although trying to speed me up ( usually when she wants a lift)with "chop chop" seems to be her latest!

The milk man has threatened more people than rosie!

I reckon half the time hes so busy adding to his hit list that he forgets to play any poker!
