Legend of the Silver Shadow!
Congrats to Amatay for taking down the Britbloggerment game last night after a titanic heads up battle with Miasdad ( Spid).
Last week, the Champion of last years World Poker blogging tourney, joined us ( Daleroxxu) and won it.This week we had poker highstakes blogging legend,Bluescouse, playing and for a while it looked like he was going to take it down.
I was never in with much of a shout myself as I seemed to be card dead and nursing a shortstack for most of the game.I finished 5th in the end after pushing my shortstack preflop with A7 and running into Tans AQ.
I'm off to Ibiza for 8 nights on Friday and although I planned to use a net terminal at the hotel ,I fear I wont be able to download the software and I may have to miss my first ever Britblogger game.Hummmf!
I only played in that one game last night after my 6am finish on Sunday morning left me exhausted, although after reading Doubleas' latest post and chatting to Bluescouse I do feel more refreshed and motivated to push on a bit.
I realised I'd actually become a little bored with poker and was becoming too easily distracted by blogs and general net surfing whilst at the tables.I'm also a lazy git and although $50nl is fairly abc stuff,you still have to pay attention to retain the proper edge.
The other factor holding me back from pushing a few boundaries is my own ego.I'm quite happy to be a winning low level cash and sng player but when I'm not trying to push myself out of my comfort zone then I can always dream that I may be able to make it higher because I've never failed at it.
Another reason is that after late nights at the weekend and a tough working day ,I often feel too tired to play and don't hit the tables until I feel semi-alert and that seems to be from 10pm.The strange thing is that once I get into my poker groove,I could ( and do some weekends) play all night!
Righty enough witterings for a Monday.Just time to thanks the recent visitor to my blog who came by after searching for "hi-tec Silver Shadows are cool".
They are indeed my friend! I deviated from the chosen path at the weekend with a pair of non shadows and my feet are a hurtin'. Long live the Silver Shadow!!
