LOL I posted this in 2009 - there is a conspiracy I tell you.

Every once in a while you decide the world and his Mother is out to get you. Well, they are. I have a few poker sites on the laptop, all the usual suspects, and they all have one thing in common. They are out to shaft me. I think that every time I sign on to a site it rings a bell deep in the bowels of that particular organisation alerting some wizened Gnome to action. Rubbing his hands with glee (not unlike the action of Sitting Bull when he saw General Custer coming down the valley) he sets the wheels in motion.

"Right let's see, give him QQ  and give the loosest player on the table 10 7 and ping a 7 7 2 flop"

"OK next, give him AA and let two other aggressive players on the table have QQ and AK respectively so we get a guaranteed three way all in. Then give him a bit of hope with a A 10 2 rainbow flop, Pop a Q on the turn to give the QQ man a bit of hope (after all he pissed us off by winning yesterday). Then provide the killer blow (let's delay the river by a few seconds) and smack a J down to give the AK man his straight

"We have analysed his play and games will be over quicker if we get rid of him early"

My life is being controlled by machines (well one machine interface, multi machine cartels out to get me) but I am about to fight back.

No longer will my life revolve around my laptop, no longer will I be a slave to its constant bleeping, pinging ways. Tonight will be the first night in two years that whilst being at home I have not played Internet Poker. I am free, free I tell you.

Really ?

I"m just a mild mannered accountant you know.


I just wanted to send out a huge thankyou to everyone that has sent a message, liked a post, favourited a tweet, retweeted, shared a link, phoned me or was just wishing me good luck subconsciously.

I was totally overwhelmed and humbled that people took the time out to care.  Just shows how great the APAT community is, and how we should show more of this side to us.  I think alongside allowing us to play the deepstack, value added poker that we love, the friendly, arms open wide community is why a lot of us got involved in the first place.

Sometimes even I forget that, but this weekends support has given me that gentle reminder of what a great bunch of people we have (most of the time).

If I didn"t manage to respond to a message or "like" a post, I"m really sorry, it"s just that I don"t like you.   Grin

I"m gutted that I couldn"t make the final table, which would have been a huge thing for the recreational and amateur players in the UK.  I made one real mistake across the five days, and it was that last hand.  And that"s the difference between an amateur/recreational player and the more experienced pro.  But, we"re all here to learn and improve, and I certainly have done that over the tournament, and I won"t be making that mistake again when it comes down to the crunch.

Before anyone says anything, it"s not about beating myself up, or being gutted, or a case of let"s see what you could have won.  I"ve just had the biggest cash of my poker life, and had one of the best experiences of my poker life (Did I ever tell you about my first live poker tournament in the Caribbean ?), and will struggle to remove the grin from my face for a good while.

I"ve been blogging across the weekend, and you can read all the details on there.


PS.

Matt Dale is a jolly decent bloke.  Don"t let anyone tell you anything different.   Grin

Certain people are making me feel quite guilty about not posting here.

Three Years  Shocked

I have been blogging elsewhere, so might do a copy and paste session of anything noteworthy, but to summarise :-

Won a bit at pokerz  Grin
Went to Vegas  Roll Eyes
Father-in-law heart attack  :"(
Back with APAT  Cheesy
Building house extension  Huh?

So, that"s everyone up to date.  Dublin this weekend for the Irish Amateur Poker Championship.  Should be a good laugh with some cracking company.
