Annual bankroll stats + new laptop
There's not much too blog about after I made a total of $6 profit last night.I crashed out of a $16 turbo early on when I raised 4bb to 400 chips with KK and was called by the mighty 89c who flopped his flush.I had the King of clubs but there was no last club on the river to save me.I wish there had been a club in my hand and the villain around to feel the force of it but sadly I just had to shake my head instead!
I took a break and watched an excellent BBC4 documentary on Barcelona FC which followed the club in 2003/4 when their new president took over.
My laptop was playing up again and I had to abandon a couple of games before taking a quick shot at a $200 nl table on 365.I wasn't paying much attention and was ready to log off and go to bed when I picked up QQ.It was late and I forgot it was a $200nl table and only raised $5 from UTG.( 1st to act).Even when the flop came 557 with two diamonds and with only one caller I led out for a weak $8,giving the villain good odds to hang around.After a blank turn I finally made a decent pot sized bet and took it down.
Just back from Comet where I bought a shiney new laptop! It's a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo LI1818 2G and set me back £459. ( + £30 for Norton)The spec is : Intel dual core,1.74ghz,160gb hard drive,2048mb ram and a 17" screen.
The other good news is that my cashout cheque from Full Tilt has finally arrived so I can get it deposited ( assuming my bank accept cheques in US dollars!)and pay off a huge chunk of my flat decorating costs.
