I've managed to ramp up my poker volume a bit since my last post and as a change of pace I've also played a couple of sets of 180 player $12 turbos and some 18 player $16's too.I made two 180 turbo final tables and both times I lost to three outers when the world was at stake.At one point I was running so badly that when I auto-folded KK due to running for a toilet break ( yeah,my poker catheter wasn't plugged in!)I wasn't too upset and sure enough I would have lost to AJ hitting an Ace on the flop.It does feel a bit churlish to be complaining about bad luck and sick beats when all I've watched all week on the news is clips of peoples homes being swept away in Japan.
The weird thing was that although I'm down a couple of hundred on Stars since my last stats post I actually quite enjoyed six tabling the multi-table turbo games and as they stay as full tables until the final table I could probably start 8-10 at a time without finding it hard to keep up.Although I usually pause the tv shows when the blinds get really high, I've also now caught up a bit with the rest of the world and nearly finished watching the first series of "The Wire" and the first five brilliant episodes of series 7 of "Peep Show"."The Wire" has been excellent so far and I've already splashed out on the 2nd series.
Not much else going on.I'm still enjoying my time off work with late nights and long sleep ins and I plan on hitting the casino tomorrow night for some live tourney action.On Thus night I'll be at Ibrox for the return leg against PSV and the Gers are still in with a shout of qualifying after a fine 0-0 result in Eindhoven last week.The footballing highlight for me last week though has to be Barcelona's win over Arsenal.
Barca's pass and move football was an absolute joy to watch and although I've seen some great club sides through the years ( the Ajax and AC Milan teams from the late 80's/early 90's come to mind) this current Barcelona time are the best I've ever seen.When Arsenal had a player wrongly sent off I wanted to see them come back and get some justice from the game but in the end I was willing Barca to hit the net after wave after wave of pass and move football which made it all look so simple.
Ok,thanks for reading.Back soon...
