Been quite an interesting week. Hardly played any cash poker at all this week. Mainly due to being out on the piss. Was out Weds for England game, Thursday for quiz, Friday played live and Saturday was out with Amanda and my m8 Graham and his wife to be, hes 58 and just proposed !! Dirty old git, and shes 19 years younger than him !!
Anyway, the live poker was a bit of a disaster, was completely card dead all tournament, not having a pocket pair above 77 all night. I managed to hang in there for a fair time though, eventually going out pushing with 22 and be called by the utg limper with A4, of course the tension mounted as he didn't hit his ace till the river of course. Live poker is soooo rigged................
Def want to play more live poker, the standard of play there is truly awful, their are a few good players, but overall, most of um haven't a clue and my biggest mistake is giving them to much respect, If I would of actually hit a hand, you can just value bet them to town, cos if they hit any part of the board, they ain't going anywhere.
So after leaving the casino at two in the morning, still sobre as we did not drink before we got there, I decided I was fcked if I was going to pay £20 for a taxi home, so walked. 3 hours later and 11 miles walked, I had arrived home at 04:55, a very pleasent walk and the most exercise I have done all week !!
On the online scene, not a bad month, up on the cash tables and had a nice result in the laddies 22:45 $4 high stack, coming 2nd losing heads up with 10c2c on a 3 club board, when he had limped with Ac3c. Don't think anyone is gonna fold a flush heads up for a tournie win. Still, 2nd not bad and a nice $130 boost to my laddies roll and some more $$$ to move me up the league table on www.wloponline.com.
The only thing that was bad about the tourney, was the fact that I had forgot how long the tourney lasts, it didn't finish till about 4.20 am and I had to be up for work at 07:15.
Glad its a bank holiday tomorrow, need the extra day off to rest my weary bones, hopefully the wife will let me get away with doing fck all, especially as its my buffday. Yet another year past, god life is going soooooo quick, feels like only yesterday I was looking forward to leaving school. Now I am just looking forward to retirement !!!
So looking back at the "old days" reminds me of the first single I ever spent my hard earned pocket money. So here it is.
