Brit Blogger Game Tonight
I think I need to work out how to place the Brit Blogger banner down the side of my blog to avoid me having to post on a Sunday to pimp it.
I'm in a decent Easter mood today after watching Rangers close the gap at the top of the league to just one point after we beat Motherwell and the mutants could only draw away to Hearts.Sadly the young lad in his 20's next to me informed me the usual seat holder,his Great Uncle,had passed away last week.As a season ticket holder for over a decade ( since I stopped working weekends)it's the same bunch of lads around me for every game and I wouldn't want to sit anywhere else in the ground.I don't believe in the afterlife or any of that stuff ( now seems as good a day as any to mention that!), but I'd still like to think auld Jimmy was looking down as the Gers goals hit the net yesterday.
I picked up Nacho after the game and took him for a long walk round the pitches before arriving home and enjoying a fine late night PS3 session with the s-man.The Party tables were quiet when he left at 2am-ish so I decided to hit up Full Tilt for a change,firing up a $33 to start with.I bubbled when I reraised a button raiser with AQ and Mr A8 sooted called and flopped a flush.As I was only playing one table I stepped up and finished the night with a $55+$5 turbo.I shoved over a button steal with 99 only find the button wasn't stealing and had QQ.There must have been a blue moon as a beautiful 9 came on the flop and despite my certainty that a Queen would follow,it never did and I had a healthy stack.Someone even said they folded J9 and I'd hit the case 9.I felt like typing "Lucky? Did you see my last bubble exit?!".I ended up coming 3rd ( for $99) when I shoved 73h from the button and ran into A9.
Playing 3-4 tables of $22's using pretty much the same technique every time does get a little repetitive after a while and it was nice to just focus on one table and actually feel like I was playing poker rather than just bashing moles.
The $55 table only had a few winners too according to Sharky and the way the first few hands went it was hard to believe it wasn't a play money game.I actually suspected chip dumping until I realised Mr 910 and Mr A4 had gotten it all in preflop ( first hand).
