Not posted for a while, mainly as I not had much to say, just plodding along. Been playing on the 6 seaters on NOIQ at 50NL, along with some low buyin MTT's on laddies. All in all, been going quite well. Strangely enough, playing more cash these days has improved my MTT game quite a lot, I think it has bought in that extra aggression and positional awareness that I was missing before. Made the money, in 8 of the 14 I have played this month and made the Final Table in 4 of those. I started off the week with a bad cold, but still managed to drag myself into work. I had a 1/2 day on weds to take Amanda to have her leg sorted after her op last week. Still felt rough, but was looking forward to a night in watching England, then found out it was on Setanta ffs, I was not gonna pay the subscription to watch the game, so the only option was the pub. This turned out, not to be the best option, although I had a great time watching a decent England performance for once, I did not drink that much, but I paid the price. I woke up Thursday morning and the cold had turned into the dreaded Man Flu !! totally full of snot and bones aching like fck. There was no way I could go into work, so had to report in sick and went back to bed. Eventually got up about midday and sat at PC wrapped in a blanket trying to make a bit of dough on the cash tables. didn't play much. But had a couple of nice hands to bring in some nice pots.
The day ended out being my most profitable day so far on the cash tables. Howver being ill also then made me realise, I could not go to my beloved quiz night, so also had to report in sick on that too. Upset me buddy a bit, who just texted back "puff" says it all really. So this is where the fate part of my post comes in. Obviously I never normally play on a Thursday night as I am out, however, tonight I decided to play the laddies $4 high stack and after 5 hours, I managed to win me first NL tourney of the year for a nice $308, not the biggest win ever, but quite satisfying.
Friday mad the money in a couple of MTTs, but nothing special. Also ran into AA twice on the cash tables to get stacked twice, but this is always gonna happen.
Still well up on the month. Still feel like shit. Hopefully will get better soon and can start exercising again, as its getting me down a bit, all this lack of fitness.
So to cheer me up, here is one of my fave songs from when I was a kid. I was a massive Madness fan and this is off their first album.
