El Grande Classico



Actual start time is 9pm gmt ( 4pm est in lobby under "Private" tournaments)

I finished Friday night up $6 over 15 games on Stars.Last night the s-man was over for an evening of football and COD 5.The s-man isn't a big football fan, however I think even he enjoyed El Grande Classico live from the Nou Camp.Barca beat Real Madrid 2-0 in the worlds third biggest football derby game.( rated just below Burnley v Blackburn ,with Rangers v celtc being numero uno!)It was an excellent game and it was great to see Messi bounce back from being scythed down time after time to score a peach of a 2nd goal for Barca.

I did squeeze in a quick $22 during half-time and took it down.The s-man and I fired up COD 5 ( Call of Duty 5) on his PS3 afterwards and made more progress on the march to Berlin.

The s-man left around 1.30 ish and I wish I'd gone to bed instead of hitting the tables.I don't believe in doomswitches,cashout curses or any of that nonsense, but for the first time ever I have sent Stars a half joking email today to ask what the odds are of having KK busted by a smaller pair making a set four times in a row.( Aces made it number five when they lost to 77).Those were just some of the two outers I ran into.It probably hurt more because I stepped up a bit from my usual $16's ( about time eh!) and was playing $27's,$38's and even a couple of $60,18 player games.It was frustrating because I was aware I was just running horribly and wanted to play through it things swung back round my way a little.( it was 6.30am before I went to bed)I made 3rd in my last two $27's to reduce my Stars losses to about $200 for the night.

At higher sngs stakes $200 isn't a big deal I suppose and I've certainly moved on mentally from the days where a loss like that would devestate my game and confidence.I'm still about $40 up at Stars for the month and a lot more at Party and Ipoker so it's time once again to just take a big deep breath,sook it up and move on.

Back soon...

Acorn, it was a superb night and I have to say the footy was excellent (and you know my general opinion of football)...

Managed to fight through the nips and nazi as usual...
