The s-man and I played our badminton game on Tuesday evening and my superior skills and fitness shone through as I cruised to a 15-1,15-2 victory over the hapless s-man with his hopeful lunges and missed drop shots!
After that healthy exertion I had a Burger King on the way up the road and after watching a poker training video and reviewing this excellent short-stack strategy blog,I opened up DTD poker site and hit the tables.
I had made a small deposit there in order to play in the Raisetheriver forum games and I had £8 left.I stuck to the strategy guide and had increased my £8 to £13 with a series of all-in moves and reraises before I finally busted.I had reraised all in with 1010,was called by AQ and of course the Ace fell on the turn.
Last night I was over at the ex's looking after Step A and Nacho.The ex and I are getting on really well and she has agreed to pop over to my place on Friday to give the flat a proper clean.I watched England's miserable performance as they crashed out of the Euro qualifiers.Croatia were by far the better team and deserved their win.Saves England the heartache of bottling another penalty shoot-out I suppose!
I didn't get home until well after midnight and hadn't intended to play any poker at all, but I was feeling inspired by another training video and hit up a $50nl 6 max cash table for a wee 1/2 hour session.I had one of those sweet moments where I raised with 44 from the button and the flop came a 4 Q 9 rainbow.I led out and won a nice pot against a villain who has flat called my raise with KK.
I finished by raising with 1010 and winning another nice wee pot when I hit my set again.I was $36 up and feeling good but it was after 1am and I sensibly switched off and went to bed.
Just back after dinner at my parents and walking Nacho.Time to go and catch up on some blogs and hit the tables....
