I Win an Old Firm Game...

Well I did break my "no smoking before a work day" rule yesterday and despite a late ( 9.30) start at work this morning I still feel completely exhausted.Still,it's a decent reminder as to why I cut back in the first place I suppose!

I did enjoy my poker last night.First up I played in a Rangers v Celtc tourney organised by a couple of football forums.There were 32 starters and after being card dead through the first few levels I managed to win a few hands and made the final table.Up until then it had been reasonably civil ( considering the bitter rivalry that exists) and there were a few of the usual pokery gg's and nh's being thrown around.

The final table chat degenerated into a lot of vile disgusting crap being spewed which was a shame, but rather than take offence I actually just felt quite sad that grown men can be so bitter and twisted.I've learned not to feed the trolls when it comes to chatbox nonsense and simply rolled up another one,tuned out the nonsense and focused on winning the game.

The Bloggerment started at 9pm, but my heart wasn't really in it and I donked off my chips early doors with AK on an Ace high board.( I shoved the turn when there wasn't a hand left that I could actually beat!)

It was good to see so many familiar faces at the Bloggerment tables and I did have a laugh when I saw Rosie's location as "chat banned".Some things never change eh! I was too focused on the Gers game to chat much although I did log on to yahoo IM straight after I crashed out and no one was on!

Thankfully the last Celtc fan in that game went out on the bubble,the chatbox calmed down a bit after that and I managed to take it down for a nice profit on my $5 entry fee.( $64 for 1st)

I caught up on The Apprentice final and ended up going to bed far too late.Back soon...

Apparently the strength of my language was such it prompted a letter from a manager, questioning whether I was female or not (!) because alledgedly women don't behave like me. Nothing like a bit of gender stereotyping in poker, eh?

Merry Christmas x

Merry Christmas to you and the wee man too and lol at that poor ignorant manager.( I'm guessing you set him straight in no uncertain terms!)

I sent a long and boring lecture on feminism and the objectification of women. I doubt they read it properly, but they were fairly speedy in distancing themselves from any suggestion they were accusing me of anything. Hilarious.

Even Stars aren't brave enough ( despite you being a softy really) to write back and tell you not to worry your pretty lil head about it eh!
