No bad beats at all to complaint about last night.I wasn't outdrawn once and halted my slide by not dropping any buy-ins at all! As you've probably guessed I didn't play any poker, although I did watch a training video after the s-man left and I'd finished whupping his best time attack times at Motorstorm Pacific Rift.I did manage to win one race but as usual far more pleasure was gained from punching other riders off their bikes and knowing that somewhere in the world somebody was sitting in front of their television cursing the Supreme Victor.( my latest MS Trophy!)
The plan is to hit the tables tonight,be up in time to watch the Champions play St Johnstone through in Perth at 12.30 and then head to the Alea casino for another go at their £22 turbo tourney.I always consider my entry fee as money spent and haven't given any consideration to playing any of the games in the £50-£100 range which run in Glasgow poker venues.They seem far too rich for my taste despite the fact I'll probably return from the Alea and happily wager approx £55 four tabling the $22 turbo's on Party.My "gulp limit" is certainly far higher online.I posted yesterday about losing 7 buy-ins in a row the other night and although it did cross my mind that the total sum lost equalled about £95, I went to bed and slept like a baby without giving it a second thought.If I lost the same total at a Casino I wouldn't be a happy Acorn at all.
Perhaps that difference in mindset is because no matter how badly I run online I know I'll always make it back at some point.Offline feels more like gambling to me and my attitude to gambling has always been that the money is spent and any winnings which come from it are a bonus.
Away from the poker I'm keeping all my fingers n toes ( and obviously saying hello to lone magpies) crossed that my sister and hubby run good on the IVF front and it works out this time.They should find out next week and I'd take all the bad beats going and more this month if that could be balanced by things working out for them just the onetime....
I've also registered Nacho with a vet ( the ex got free treatment for him as she didn't work)and can only hope he'll cope with the change of surname without needing doggy counselling.Booster time for him next week so that should be fun.
Ok,posting about the dog's upcoming injection must mean this post has well and truly jumped the shark.
Thanks for reading and good luck to Burnley in the big game of the weekend away at their rivals Blackburn Rovers on Sunday.
