Sneezy Game

There was a knock at my door at 4pm on Friday and I was surprised to see Step A and one of her wee friends.We played some COD online,they took Nacho out and about 6-ish I took the pair of them for a Mc'ds.We popped round to see my Mum and Dad afterwards and it was nice to see Step A drop the drinking/smoking teen rebel routine as she shyly covered her snakebite piercings and was full of hugs when my Mum answered the door.She's a great kid and I hope she gets through this tough stage of her life unscathed.

On Saturday night the s-man and Al Eleven were round and we had a good laugh chewing the fat and playing some COD online.Yesterday I watched the Gers draw 3-3 in the cup and made a cash transfer on Stars to my Mum to cover Mothers Day.I dropped the extensively researched and carefully selected card ( yeah,the last one in the garage)round a bit later and also helped my Mum cash in a $3.25,45 player turb.

I picked up Nacho and a Chow Mein on the way home and after walking the boy,I hit up the Bloggerment a few minutes into the game.Despite my fuzzy head and runny nose I actually ran quite well in the game,sucked out a few times and generally luck boxed my way to victory! It was good to get 12 runners ( where were you Dudley?!) and hopefully last week was just a blip and The Bloggerment can get into at least double figures every week.

The Party $22's were calling and after a 2nd and 3rd place finish from 3 games the lure of Rush poker was too much and I opened a 6 max $50 nl table.I've also watched some of Isildur1's over the last few days and just observing him play seems to make me want to take more shots.Playing $50nl with aprox 10 buy-ins ( on Full Tilt) still feels quite nitty when Isildur1 has his whole bankroll spread across 6 Heads Up tables v the worlds best! After dropping nearly a buy-in at $50nl I moved up to $100nl where 1010 holding v AK for a buy-in inspired me to move up further and give $200nl a go.It was only a short 20 min session at that level and after raise/folding with 99 from mid-pos after being reraised to $35 I decided it was time for bed!

According to Pokertracker I've now played over 18k Rush hands and have earned $7.24 per hour.I'll resist moaning about how I've paid nearly $600 in rake and don't get rakeback...!

Ok,thanks for reading.Back soon...

well done in the bloggerment mate. Was good fun.

Hope the fuzzy head and that is clearing up



p.s. I HATE that Full Tilt still won't give me rakeback, you could earn a decent wedge just in RB playing rush!

The Rush tables are mental, played 10k hands of full ring last week and basically broke even despite being 6 buy-ins up then seven down at one point.
