First up,Happy Birthday to Rosie the Rottie! Have a good one!

Other than wishing Rosie all the best for today I don't have much to blog about.It's just aswell I make donkey plays and can witter on for paragraphs about them!

I didn't start playing any poker until fairly late on last night.I was chatting to Juice,Mr Edge and Rosie and locked myself out of my Bet 365 account in error.Doh!

We did finally all jump into a $6.50 ,18 player turbo at Stars and after one failure ,we played another which I managed to come 2nd in.

I should probably have gone to bed but ended up hitting a $100nl 6 max table at Inter where I played quite well until my moment of donkery.I blame that familiar last hand/orbit syndrome leak I seem to have, where I can't seem to fold garbage hands just before I leave the table.

This time it was the powerhouse hand QJ soooted.It was raised to 4bb by the UTG player and I had intended to fold until there was another caller before me and I used pot odds to justify my call.( fishy excuse of the year!)

The flop came 8 high with 2 clubs giving me a flush draw, and I remember calling what seemed like a weak continutation bet.Another 8 on the turn and I called yet another bet, hoping if the villain was on AK/AQ then a push by me on the river would force him to fold.

I had hoped to possibly represent the 8 if my flush draw failed but another 8 on the river meant any attempt to represent it looked unlikely now as I'd have to have dem quad biatches.

The villain checked to me and instead of following my instinct which said he'd missed this board ,I checked my Q high too and his AK ( Ace high) took the pot.My only defence is that I hadn't been at the table long enough to have any clue if the villain would have called an all in push on the river.

Ok,that's all for today....

I think you did right checking it down, even though it was unlikely you would win the pot. Chances are these donkeys arte never gonna fold Ace high! ;o)

Your friend the Salmon is quiet this week!
