Sharky Curse...

I had been toodling along nicely at the Party $22's, with my roll there peaking at $2628 about a week or so ago.On checking my Stars sharkscope stats ( finally over the $9k profit mark) I noticed Party sng results are now covered.Sadly for my poker ego they begun coverage just as I hit that $2628 peak and have only recorded my swing down to $2200 and back to $2430.

My luck last night at the $22's reminded me of the 1000 game almost break even streak I suffered at Stars a couple of months back.Thankfully,having been through a streak like that,I've developed a far thicker poker skin and appreciate that nights as bad as last night are part of grinding turbos.Apart from a couple of hands, I felt I played well, which is all you can ever do when the 2 outers and lost flips are piling up.I even came back from 25 chips on one table only to bubble when my 22 fell to 86.

Tonight I'm off to Hampden to watch Rangers v Falkirk in the league cup semi-final.It's cold,wet and miserable here in Glasgow tonight and hopefully my team can rattle in a few goals.

I also intend to play some more live poker soon as I didn't play at a poker club or casino at all last year.In truth I always seem to feel like a total poker newbie whenever I've played live,never having a clue when it's my turn,what the stack sizes are or even who is supposed to turn over their cards first at showdown.I'm a lazy sod and having it all worked out online for me means I really don't pay any attention to the workings of the game.I do wish it was possible to smoke da herb during live games though! I rarely play online without a puff and find without it I get too keen to get involved,tilt more easily and generally find it tougher to tune into the flow of the game.

Righty,back soon..

Hi

I'm up in Glasgow this weekend for a stag do. Where do you recommend about ten 40 year olds go boozing?

I think you should try The Brazen Head. Don't look much from the outside but I'm sure you'd get a friendly welcome. Specially if you could lay your hands on some Rangers shirts

:0)

Umm, no, Rubbish, I'm not from Glasgow. I did have a boyfriend who lives there though so I visited a few times.

I'm sorry to admit I was winding you up a bit about the Brazen Heid. Its a pretty nasty Celtic Pub in the Gorbels. Don't go in there with a Rangers shirt on. I'm sure you'll have a great time in Glasgow.

The West End of Glasgow ( few quid for a taxi from centre) is probably your best bet,followed by a visit to 7th Heaven at Charring Cross....( as recommened by workmate!)

Lol at Rosies suggestion.You'd need a grey and green top + the standard monobrow to fit in at that shithole!

That's a bit naughty Rosie. Last time I was in Glasgow was about 20 years ago. We went up for the Rugby, Don't like Edinburgh, and a few boys had Welsh scarves on. We were in a Rangers pub and they thought we were from Aberdeen and it got pretty nasty for a while. Good laugh when it all calmed down. What's the Bets 7th Heaven is a gay bar?

Cheers for the replys though guys. All the best.

Lol,it's defintely not a gay bar.More somewhere to go if you're looking for a dance...

Ashton Lane would be a good starting point if you do hit the West End.Some decent pubs there.
