First two levels. I manage to lose a few hundred with 88 on the first hand. Called a re-raise, which was a bit loose. Later, I raise with AQ and get two callers. Flop is AQ6. SB checks, I check, the button bets, call, I raise and only the SB calls. Turn is a king and the SB checks very quickly. Realised once he called my turn bet that he probably had AK. Ten on the river, so check, check, and he does have AK.

I then lose a few more chips to the same bloke with AQ again when the flop comes ace high but with three spades. There"s a spade on the river too and I have to fold. He shows the jack of spades. He wins quite a big pot off someone else with the same fourth spade on the river s**t later on. My first winning hand (it took a while!) was when the cutoff raises, the button re-raises, and I push my 2k in the middle with AK. They both fold, but from what the button said I think he may have had QQ.

I then win some of my chips back from the lucky bloke when I raise with 77 and he calls along with one other. Flop is AT9 and I c-bet to rep the ace, lucky bloke calls and the other bloke folds. The turn is an 8 giving me ropey straight draw. I almost check, but decide I have to show strength. I bet, he folds. A pretty dead half hour before the break. I raise once with AK and everyone folds. So I"ve had AK twice and AQ twice, but not much else. I think we are playing eight levels today with no dinner break, so we will be done by 10pm. Unusual.

A sad lack of banter at the table. What"s wrong with everyone? Anyone would think it was some really big important tournament.  Wink

Next two levels. I finally get a hand: KK UTG. I raise, and luckily the button re-raises. I go all in and he calls with TT. Flop 666 and the turn a king. Nice. Up to about 4600.

Then nothing for ages. I decide to raise UTG with T9s, which was obviously very dodgy, and despite not having played a hand for over half an hour, I get three callers! Flop is QQ9. I probably should have bet, but didn"t fancy the chances of getting through three players, especially as one of them is "lucky twat" (LT from now on). It gets checked round. The turn is a ten, and we have three diamonds. I bet 1100 and LT calls. The river is a king and I bottle out and check and he puts me all in. I fold and so go down to about 2300. Very annoying, especially as the very next hand I get AK. Button raises, I push and he folds.

I raise late with AJ and the BB pushes, and I fold (nearly called). Then the very last hand before the second break, I"m in the SB and there"s a weird thing where everyone"s folding and I"m thinking about stealing with my QcJc, when suddenly UTG has raised to 350. Everyone had folded without allowing him to act. So I decide to make a loose call, and the BB calls too. Flop is 887 with two clubs. F**k it. I go all in with my last 1975 chips. The BB folds and the UTG raiser looks annoyed, but calls anyway with TT. Club on turn. Get in! Back up to 5k.

Levels 5 and 6. Absolutely card dead. Got away with a couple of steals, so after two hours of pain I still have about 4400, but it"s double up or leave time! I think the average is about 9k.

By the way, if you were wondering what happened to LT, he got very unlucky, for once. He called a raise out of position, they checked a flop of A94, the turn is a 2 and he check-raises the turn bet, and then the river is an ace, all the chips go in and LT has 53 for the straight, but the other bloke has A9 for the nuts!

Levels 7 and 8. I finally got a hand in the first 20 minutes. QQ in the BB. There was a raise, then a call, so I push in my 5k and the caller calls me. He has 99, and about an hour earlier he had 99 against QQ and hit a nine, so there was some banter about that, but the queens held up. With the other blokes chips I was up to about 12k, and then I won a smaller pot against the loose bloke, and so reached my peak of 14k. I was again card dead for the last 90 minutes and lost chips a few times when calling min-raises in the BB. The annoying hand was towards the end when a new player min-raised and I called in the SB with JT (I know, I know!). The BB called too, and we saw a flop of A95, all clubs. I had the jack of clubs. I check called the flop, and then led out for 3200 on the turn of . She pushed all in. I folded, even though I only had 6k behind. I should have pushed the turn, although I sense she might have been miles ahead. All very poor. Anyway, I made it to the end of level 8, and so will be playing Day 2 tomorrow. On our return, blinds will be 300/600/75, so basically I"m in push mode with my 6775 chips. There is some Brit on the Final Table tomorrow, so if I go out quickly I might have to rail him. Sounds like it will be messy!
