Do you want to see a bad beat? Not the usual - this is a real cracker from the SCOOP tonight. I start with AJA. With two cards to come and all the chips in the middle, I already have AAAJJ and he has a pair of eights. There is only one way for him to win, which is if his last two cards are the other two eights. What was even funnier is that he then sat out. I assume he figured he couldn"t win the hand and just logged out or went off.

I think I should give up online poker. Just had so many bad beats over the last three weeks or so, especially on Stars. Nearly posted this a couple of days ago, but resisted.

Instead, I joined Party and played that DTD thing at different levels last night and tonight and took three more horrific bad beats, losing a huge stack each time. You would be shocked if I posted them, but what"s the point. In fact, what"s the point of playing when you keep losing your stack to people who make hopeless plays?

The whole point of playing is so that you can induce opponents into making hopeless plays.

So what if occasionally we experience a run of those hopeless plays paying off? Variance sucks, and it may never even out in your lifetime, but you have to keep playing in the anticipation that it will.

Hadn"t realised you had replied, David. I have always rolled with your view and spurned the internet-is-rigged argument. On this occasion, I couldn"t come up with any explanation for why the people involved had played their hands as they did, unless they knew what was coming. I played one hand where we had both doubled our stacks to 100k early and were both top ten out of a few hundred. He called a big 3-bet pre-flop, called big amounts on the flop and turn, such that he had a third of his chips in by that stage, holding T6 on a K937 board. The position we were in was not the time to start risking his stack on a wild goose chase. An 8 at the end put me back down to 50k starting stack. I managed to get back up by winning a race and then the same thing happened again, almost identically. I played two other tournaments there and pretty much the same thing happened, with people putting very good positions in jeopardy for no logical reason (and receiving the freak card every time). These tournaments were all satellites for a live DTD event and were filled with DTD regs, which was the main reason I was suspicious. I haven"t played on Party since. Think I"m ready to try again now.

After the lion, yet another example of how hunters with bows have a habit of not getting the job finished cleanly.

Having missed National Orgasm Day, I was pleased to discover that there will be a second opportunity, as Saturday will be International Orgasm Day.

Except it"s actually International Female Orgasm Day. What"s the point of that?

So the first Republican debate Is tonight. Seventeen candidates split into two groups. It is likely that Jeb Bush or Scott Walker will be the nominee next year but, in the meantime, the debates should be a lot of fun - and could change history.

Some the candidates are very well qualified, but just don"t seem like people I would want to have running the world.

Would you want Rick Perry, three-time Governor of Texas, who can"t remember which government agencies he wants to abolish, running the world?

[youtube=425,350]http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VWZ-e3T1gVI [/youtube]


How about Senator Ted Cruz, who has a glittering legal career behind him, including being the youngest Solicitor General in Texas history and arguing more landmark cases in the US Supreme Court than anyone else in Congress?

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaZGaJrd3x8[/youtube]


And, of course, there is Donald Trump. As the unexpected front-runner,  Trump suddenly has something to lose, so the word is that he is going to tone the usual bombast right down.

Some of the others are just as deranged.

You have a right to be worried.

The debate is on Fox News live now:  http://www.foxnews.com/live-coverage/fox-news-republican-presidential-primary-debate

But they have it on a small screen, with no sound, as you"re supposed to have a cable subscription. You can fake it by also calling up Fox Radio, which has it live (the sound is in sync) and expanding the screen.

These are the options for the new New Zealand flag. The old New Zealand flag is crap and looks pretty much the same as the Australian one (a bit like the one on the left of the second row of the new options), so they"re getting a new one. 10,292 designs were submitted and these are the 40 that have made the long-list.

Unfortunately, the new options are crap too - and a lot of them are very similar. They nearly all have stars, a fern or a koru. I thought a koru must be a wave, representing the sea that surrounds them, but apparently it"s not. It is also a fern, but one that is unfolding. Ferns are a big deal in New Zealand. There are a couple of triangle things and one that looks like a sex position.

A few of the options would be okay as company logos, a lot of them look like ice-cream containers and most are just terrible. Makes you wonder how bad the rejected proposals were.

The cost of the whole process is estimated at nearly $26m, mainly for two referendums. Keeping the old flag is still an option too.

From what they"ve got, I think one of these will win. But, really, they should start again.
