I watched Rangers dispose of Gretna with ease yesterday at Ibrox before doing some stuff around the flat and talking Nacho out for a run.( he ran,I strolled)
At 9pm it was Bloggerment time and congrats to Jjay2005 on taking down the title for the Watford posse.Thanks to all 19 runners who turned out to play.
I came 8th and really only played a couple of key hands.Last weeks winner ,Lukkybugr,raised from early position and I woke up with KK.I was tempted to make a standard reraise but decided a shove would look more like I had AK/AQ.Lukybuggr called with 66 and my cowboys held.
I managed to stay afloat until I limped in the sb with ( may have been bb,I'm not sure) with Q9 and faced a tough laydown on the turn when reraised on a 9 10 10 Q board.Cell showed A10 and I think I was only able to make the laydown because his bet looked like it wanted a call and he'd only want that if I was beaten.
That left me on about 1700,the blinds were rising and when it was folded to me in the small blind I looked down to 1010, shoved and ran into QQ in the big blind.My fantastic luck in blogger games continues!
I checked out the $16's afterwards but all the registering games were brimming with solid regulars.I don't mind playing with these guys at all, however if there are fishier games I'd rather be in them so I headed to Party for some $22 single table turbo action.
As a sidenote when I checked my miscalleneous stats on Sharky at Stars it shows that 97% of the sng's I have played in have been turbo's! The Bloggerment and RTR games must be the only standard speed games I play and they do seem very very slowwwwwww.
The Party $22 turbs continue to be softer than a last minute freekick for celtc and actually require a bit of downward adjustment compared to Stars $16's.For example ( my hand doesn't matter) a villain with 99 called me down on a board with an king and queen on it after I'd made my usual large preflop and flop bet.( which screamed I have a big piece of this!)
Bottom line is that I played about four or five turbs and only made the money when I won the last one for a small overall profit.I do love the Party fish factor but I also like knowing who the regulars are at Stars and Sharkscope doesn't seem to work well on Party either.
I'm picking my boy up again tonight,fitba' and babysitting on Wed and on Thursday I'm donning some smart clothes and heading to Glasgows biggest casino,The Alea,for the grand opening night.From what I've heard it sounds like a fantastic venue and I'm looking forward to it.
Thanks for reading.I'll be back later in the week...
