I am Immortal!

I've only played a few $22's at Party over the last couple of nights.I've been too busy watching Andy Murray continue his run at Wimbledon and playing ps3 games online.Hopefully Murray can beat Roddick tomorrow and make Sundays final, although even if he does I reckon Federer will prove too strong for him.

The only ps3 game I'm playing online is Motorstorm Pacific Rift and if any readers/bloggers fancy a game leave me a comment or drop me an email and I'll pass on my username thingy.The s-man and I thought we were pretty good at the game until we got online.I've actually won a "ranked race" ( earned my "Immortal badge" as I occasionally remind the s-man) but most of the time we're the poker equivalent of a couple of donkeys! Be warned though that I don't always play to win.I picked a Big Rig last night for one race and heard the kiddies on their headsets mocking my choice as it didn't suit the course.I may not have won but I had great fun ramming the motorbikes off the course at the start and listening to other players swearing loudly at my antics.

I also procured some fine new herbs although the downside of that is that I almost ate the new lighter I bought in the Dam as it looks very much like a chocolate bar..

Back to the poker and here's a wee hand from a $33,45 player turbo I played back on June 21st.I often find that when a player loses a big hand,they tend to shove the last of their chips in the pot on the next hand regardless of it's value.In this case I had 4 big blinds left,had been playing my usual TAG ( tight/aggressive) game and reckoned that if nobody woke up with a monster behind me I'd get a chance to take all the blinds/antes and sidepot against what was probably a random hand.I was also due to take the blinds within a few hands and lose any fold equity I had left.I'm still unsure if it was a standard move or an act of donkery!
