The highs n lows of a winning low stakes Sng player
With dinner and a dvd planned for tonight and the s-man visiting tomorrow night, it looks like I’ll finish the month having made a reasonable profit at the virtual felt. That will be quite a relief after the last couple of months of pokery hell. The secret this month has simply been running a little better at the tables and taking far more breaks from the game. Online poker tends to be far fishier at the weekends, however although I’m may be missing out on juicier games,feeling fresher when I do play more than makes up for that.To be fair it’s easier to feel fresh and less burned out when winning and there’s no doubt results influence my feelings on the game from week to week.
I may have mentioned that Rangers won the Scottish League Championship the other day on the last day of the season.Our rivals were at home to Hearts and needed to win whilst hoping Dundee United beat or drew with Rangers as this scenario would have given them the title.Most of the fans at the games were relying on text messages to keep them up to date with how their rivals game was progressing, although so long as Rangers won, it didn't matter how celtc got on.Glasgow may be a divided city but most of us know season ticket holders who support the enemy and there were certainly plenty of text messages/emails being exchanged last week about where the league title would end up.

The mindset of the poker fish has always interested me.How can people be so stupid we ask ourselves? Lack of experience,the urge to gamble,the thrill of making mooooves,tilt and people with plenty of experience who simply don't "get it" are a few of my theories.I keep reading about how tough games are thanks to poker forums,training sites etc and although there may be a little truth in that,I remember reading a load of snooker books as a lad and they never turned me into Stephen Hendry! ( good enough to play blindfold with a hand tied behind my back and still beat Juice though! )
I wasn't out too late on Monday night as I hate leaving Nacho for long after he's been left all day.Having said that, my neighbour has been taking him into her place sometimes to play with her sisters dog which is great.
I've been playing so much Motorstorm Pacific Rift recently that when I saw a truck with it's back down this morning I nearly tried to use it to jump the upcoming roadworks.The S-man and I even tried playing it online on Sat night, but our reputation as top racers must have scared off the competition.( or the 10 yr old ps3 superstars were all in their beds as it was past 9pm!)

I'd written the paragraphs below about the football and about that AQ hand before I checked out my favourite blogs this morning on bloglines.Most are poker blogs, but I've also found myself drawn to a few blogs I never expected to get hooked on and Elaine's blog over at oldageisabitch has always been one of my first reads of the day since '07.We never swapped links and I only left the occasional comment, but her personality,humour and sunny outlook shone through her posts no matter how badly her health problems were affecting her.
Monday night was enjoyable and last night I was out for dinner with my parents before hitting the ps3 with the S-man later for a fine session.On the football front our rivals won last night which means we need to win tonight to stay two points clear with two games to go.Squeaky bum time!
Yesterday was tough.I picked up Step A as usual to give her a lift home from her Dads and the first thing she asked was "Where's Nacho?".I had to explain that her Mum had asked me to have him fulltime as they were moving in the summer.Step A said she was told any move was next year and tears followed.( I held mine until I'd dropped her off!)
Two evenings have now passed without me playing a hand of poker.This must mean I'm either ill or have been busy dating.Thankfully I don't require medical attention! Very early days on the dating front though and I don't intend posting any details here.
I thoroughly enjoyed the bank holiday on Monday.The s-man was over and after pizza and getting stuck into Motor Storm ( on ps3) we watched the movie "Donkey Punch" which was excellent in a disturbing kind of way.When the s-man hit the road I fired up a couple of $22's on Party and cashed in both.
....because they're stupid and can't help themselves!
