Whilst not playing poker I am going to get the new Dan Brown book to read. I have heard it is really good so will hopefully enjoy that.

Thanks Darren

I have to admit to being surprised by how dominant England have been  in the Ashes tour, they are now pretty sure sure to win the series.

So even though I am from Wales on this occasion I have to say - Well Done England.

Well I am not playing well at the moment and there is a pretty important tournament in Spain soon, perhaps you know about it? so will be taking a break before that and going in fresh aiming to get one more top performance this year and give myself the best chance of the top spot.

Congrats on your recent results also and lets take it to the wire in Spain. Play well!

Not sure. Probably the Wales and England Cricket board I expect.

Speaking of which The six nations games is happening on 4th Feb. It is the Friday night game. I never liked the idea of Friday night games but I came around to them pretty quick to be honest. The problem is guess which Saturday I have put myself down to work this month. Sigh. I am more hopeful than confident of a Welsh win this year.

APAT Team shirts are now ordered, for the invincibles at Bolton, with the help of the most excellent Mr Leigh Wiltshire.

How did chocolote bars become so expensive. I bought a Mars bar today and it cost me 65p. I had to check I was really in the canteen in work and not in a service station!!!!

Friday night 6 Nations games are not in the spirit of the competition IMO.
Saturdays were excellent, as you could all meet in the pub around lunchtime, watch 2 or 3 of the games, and then get very drunk celebrating afterwards long into the night, and then make your way home on the last train.
Now with the Friday game, its a rush to get to the stadium if you have to work, then once the game finishes around 10pm, everyone wants to get home at the same time, so the train station is absolutely packed.

Although I was not really playing poker at the moment I decided to have a quick crack at the turbo tournament tonight.

[ ] Went Well :-)

So droped $10 there - year now looks something like this;-

Cash Online = -£203
Tournament online = -$10

Might have to send for the old box of luck to sort this one out *lol*

So Kenny Dalglish has taken over at Liverpool until the end of the season. Couldn"t have a much harder job to start with, away to Man Utd in the FA Cup. I think he will probably do well but getting a top four spot is most likely beyond them at this stage, would be good if he could win them the FA Cup or at least a trophy of some kind. I definately think it will see an improvement in their results even though he has not really been in the game for years.

Player mentality plays a huge part. I think you will see a completely different Liverpool for the rest of the season.

I think that Liverpool will get a huge boost from this. I would not be surprised to see them nick a win tomorrow.

On the day of the second coming.

Well thats a good start to coming back to Liverpool, welcome back to Old Trafford here is a dodgy penalty !!!!! Long way to go yet though.

I have been having a quiet weekend this weekend to be best prepared for next weeks festivities. Have a busy week in work so will be well ready for Spain, Paulie is doing a great job of planning the event and Ger is doing a great job of managing him. I have registered for the casino but have yet to recieve my email confirmation.

Tonight is the final night of the APAT league. Although Swansea are only in Div 3 it would be very good to get a top three finish as the Team has started to grow this year and I hope it continues to exist next season whatever the league format.

Sorry poor choice of word - encouraging him would be better.

In the football I think Liverpool are looking a much more commited side and are fighting for the cause here. Might be something to do with the fact it is the FA at Man Utd but they do look at better team than they have in previous games this season. It would not be that surprising if they pinched a draw.

The whole of the poker world has gone mad for writing blogs. Blonde Poker has turned into Blonde Blogs and I have never seen this section of the forum so up to date. I am currenty trying to follow about 10 of them which is taking up time where I should be working but there we are.

I realised today that I had made an error of judgement in my planning for the weekend. Obviously and APAT weekend means you take the Friday off work and I had duly sorted this plus next Monday and Tuesday, (it is useful that in my job I can move days around and if I need time off in the week can just go in on a weekend which helps with poker weekends). However a day to prepare is obviously required for such an important mission and I totally forgot to sort out Thursday off. I have this morning checked my calander for Thursday and it was down as a pretty busy day. Guess I am spending the afternoon trying to rearrange this and find some nice people who can help me out with it.

The league game last night went well. To start with I get Ian and Allyson to my left - not ideal but I can cope. I was actually playing OK to start with, not nearly at the top of my game but perfecty OK and got myself up to 3000 chips ahead of the average. Then I decided that with 17 big blinds I would find a good spot to reshove. Anyway Shug made a large raise from EP and I have some kind of suited connector. I decided this is a fine spot even though Shug has barely played a hand and has put in an above average raise from EP. He obviously has aces and makes a full house.

The pokers are going so well this year and we are only 10 days in. My next game will be in Spain, I honestly think this is good as I am going to be more motivated playing live and think it will get me back on the right track. I genuinely expect to play quite strongly over there and as long as I don"t run bad to do well, a final table to complete three for the year would be great.

Anyway Bottom line for me at the moment is:-

Online Cash = £203 Down
Online Tournaments = $20 Down
Live Cash = Not Played
Live Tournamnets = Not Played

Not that concerned, early days and am pretty sure I will start to turn it before the end of the month. Will drop stakes in online cash for now to to bring confidence back when I get back onto it next week.
