Got the Runs....+ Monthly Stats

Deep runs that is.Last weekend I finally found some run good and went deep in a few tourneys.Sadly I only managed some small cashes and still lost key hands at crucial times but it certainly felt better than the last few weeks when I've barely been able to get a hand to hold up or win a flip.

I did take a note of some of my more painful exit hands but I'll spare you the bad beat stories and crack on with the post.The hand below made me smile,mainly because the villain ( that's why I included the hand history)showed the 6d before folding.The only disappointment was that I didn't manage to change my "show hand" option in the lobby quickly enough to show him my 4 high...

Stats: Pokerstars $1851 ( -$1377) over 256 mtt's and 100 hyper sngs.

There's no doubt Mtt variance when taking shots on a small roll can be very disheartening.Last weekends deeper runs without any actual big cashes made me realise just how much of a shot I am taking playing $55 and $44 games as there's some amount of run good needed to do well in Mtt's.I've posted a few hands I've played with some of the very best players but those players are rare in Mtt land and most of the players tend to be very bad indeed and although watching my big hands go down in flames is frustrating I also find it gives me a lot of hope too as those are the players I'll make my money from when I do learn how to run better at key moments.

Away from the poker I went out with the goldfish kisser again on Saturday.We were going to see "The Hunger Games" but it was sold out so we went to the pub instead.We did kiss again before she got the train home and it was just as bad as it was before.We talked about going to the cinema again sometime this week but when she sent me a text yesterday to try and sort a date I gave her the old "it's not working out" reply.For the best I think.

On Sunday Two Pies and I went to the Old Firm game at the Piggery where we watched the Gers lose 3-0.It was a bit surreal because although we lost to our bitter rivals and the team didn't play well our supporters were louder than ever and the 7500 Rangers fans completely outsung the 50000 shitey home support.My seat ( not that I sat down at all!)was just down from where the vid below was filmed.I'm not a big fan of the "Ten German Bombers" song ( from 5.08 on the vid) but it sounded magic on Sunday and I'm still hoarse from all the singing today.
