My Dad is bigger than yooooors.....
Nobody likes losing so I suppose playing 22 games on Sat night and finishing on exactly $0 profit is not the worst poker night ever.Another night of "if onlys" and two outer suckouts.Last night at the felt seemed exactly the same, only this time a couple of decent $16 cashes actually left me up just over $100 for my nights work.I'm going to try and save a few of the more interesting hand histories ( not always bad beats!)to try and get this blog out of the boring rut of bad beats and "I won one and took 2nd in another" type posts it seems to be stuck in at times.
Congrats to Quixote on taking down last nights Bloggerment.My own game went the usual way for me in Stars blogger games...badly!
I was forced to laydown a couple of hands preflop before making my first "move" with QJ when I shoved and was called by Dudleys AK.When the flop came Q J rag,I just knew the 10 was coming and it duly arrived on the turn to knock me out.
I watched some of the final table and I'm not going to comment too much on chat box shenanigans, as it's my view that I'm co-host of a poker tourney and not the headteacher of an Infant school! Besides, I missed a lot of what was said and as I was previously involved with Rosie and detest celticriver's football team and all they stand for ,I probably wouldn't be the most impartial judge! Still,if any of the protagonists would care to leave details of their fathers height and general build in the comments box I'm sure we could settle it once and for all....
Ok,here's a standard turbo hand from last night which shows the power of having a big stack on the bubble.With two shortstacks and the taiko21 acting last with 5255 chips, shoving or betting enough to pot commit the villains is almost automatic.There's no way tiako can call me here without AA/KK as risking his tournament equity is too much of a gamble with two shorties behind.

Ok,after the pocket fives thread I posted the other day I don't want to frighten off my reader by getting too crude and rude here.I've always tried not to swear too much as I know some people read from work and workplaces can have funny ideas about sites using ( I fucking hate the "I" word) inappropriate language, but I was chatting to a mates brother last night and he came away with a couple of sexually enlightening terms which I found so disgusting,sexist and rude I thought I'd post 'em....!Look away now if yer easily offended...( these are his words not mine!)
The Angry Pirate: blurt yer muck out in her eye then kick her in the shin so she hops about holding her eye.
Bucking Bronco:doing a burd from behind......grab her by the hair.......then lean in and whisper that her sister is much better, again hence the title
Ok,back later in the week...
