Bought New Car!
Not long back from the Arnold Clark carshowroom where I've just purchased myself a silver 2005 Ford Focus ST170 like the one pictured! I absolutely love my black Alfa 156 2.5 v6 but it's a 1999 model with 77k on the clock and the repairs were getting more and more expensive.The Focus looks great, drives like a dream and I can't wait to get the loan and plate transfers etc sorted. ( my "Acorn 1" number plate *)
It's still got a year left on the Ford warranty and will hopefully cost a bit less to run too.I spend about £150 ( $300) per month on petrol alone just now for my Alfa.
The Focus ST is just about as quick as the Alfa,has full traction control option and half leather sports seats.I can't wait to get it now!
Poker bit back last night at the tables after a decent start at 'Stars.I was $30 up at my cash table when my Kings were busted by some donkey calling pot size bets with 910 on a 10 high flop and hitting his 9 on the river.
I moved to a Party $100 nl 6 max table and suffered another suckout, which led to me making a daft tilty bluff ( I had Q10c and was on a failed flush draw) against the tables resident fishy calling station, who called my river bet with his 3rd pair.I realised I was tired and had had enough so I watched some of the Party Poker open on Ch4 before heading to bed $80 down.
On reflection I wished I'd shown the character to stay at that last table,tighten up my game and try and take out the fish using my failed bluff to hopefully get me action.Perhaps though, after that nasty combination of suckouts and card deadness, my bed was the best place for me.
I could also blame the bloggers curse for my woes last night.It seems everytime I read about another bloggers poor night at the tables I go and have one myself! More success stories please!
Righty that's all for today.Thanks for reading...
* ok my private plate isn't "Acorn 1" but maybe one day....
