There's a Special Place in Hell....

...for Motherfuckers like you.

No real reason for the above.Step A tweeted a pic of a t-shirt with that message on it and I liked it!

On the subject of things I like, what could be better than a website where you can ask someone to paint whatever you like ( the more surreal the better) using just MS Paint.Some excellent work on there and well worth a look.

Things have gone a bit better at the virtual felt since my last post.I took 4th in a $16,$3k Gtd for $458 last weekend and last night after a slow start to the evening I came 5th for $517 in a $9.90 turbo Mtt where only the final table got paid.Frustrating exit hands in both of those games but I checked my stats at that final table last night and I'd won 11/13 hands that went to showdown so I can't really complain.( for a change eh!)

I've stuck to buying into Mtt's at $16 or below for the most part although I do like to give myself the chance to win big in at least one of the games on my schedule and regularly blow $30-$40 on the $11,$40k Gtd rebuy tourney.As per my last post I've also been firing up more 45 and 180 player turbo's and I've had a few wins a the 45's to boost my roll.I'm trying to stick to mainly the $7-$8 buy-in level as I try and grind my roll up again but I usually slip a few $15's into my sets of twelve games too.

Away from the poker I've not been up to much.Just the usual mix of work,football,video games and visiting friends and family.Life at work has certainly been a lot less stressful working with a different manager since the turn of the year.Now I'm not into self-help books or mumbo jumbo bullshit but I did read Oliver James book on Office Politics recently and it's definitely helped me adapt my thinking and helped me improve life at work too.I recognised myself instantly as the "non machiavellian" type he describes and have realised that trying to always stay "true to myself" and be brutally honest in every situation is probably not the best approach to work or life.

A few of the other attributes of a non Machiavellian are :Wears convictions on sleeve,accepts others motives at face value,makes gross assumptions about what others are thinking,assumes reciprocity,believes others ought to act in certain ways,tells it like it is,withdraws into inflexible positions on points of principle and seeks a stable environment.Yup that's me!

Ok,with Nacho staying with Step A this weekend and only my dinner break to interrupt me time to roll one up and hit the felt.Going to start by one tabling the $3.30 6 max PLO Micro Millions event 21 on Stars in a moment.Bring on the 4 card bingo! I just hope I don't end up with any top PLO sharks at my table....
