3x raise ok ish , slightly less imo better if you intend to open wide or have unknowns to your left.
prefer to cbet this for value rather than turn our hand into a bluff catcher versus an unknown.
after check calling flop turn. your river decision is ok...

Firstly thanks to all who applied to take part, it was as I thought it would be, a difficult task to choose the team, however I can reveal that the England Team for the tournament in Vienna in April will be as follows:

Shirley Cole

Vince Eley

Linda Iwaniak

Don Roberts (Captain)

Great Team Don good luck

Ok, was in 2 minds whether to post this as I had previously said the above post that was the last, but if you are a regular reader of this I have made more comebacks than Frank Sinatra, and it's seems quite apt to finish the year off and finally lay this blog to rest.

Fitted a lot in in the last 4 months, some poker included,but will just go over highlights otherwise could be here all day.

September was In Tenerife for a week, just chilling after the funeral, loads of walking and just getting away from everything.

October was up in Scotland, hiking, with the hike up Ben Nevis to be the highlight, unfortunately I twisted my ankle the day before so I was laid up for 48 hours, could of been worse could of twisted it first day. Loved Glencoe and surrounding areas, amazing place just 45 mins from Glasgow highly recommend for short break, loved it.

I also noticed Apat were in Malta in November so decided to go there with the intention of playing the €550 event and Apat game.

A week before Malta managed a 3rd place in a  £150 bounty hunter in Sunderland for £1850 so Malta became a freeroll, lost said £1850 in Malta but that included travel/hotel costs etc, easy come easy go, I could recount the ridiculous hands I lost to in both the €550 and Apat game but if you flick back a few pages I may of mentioned one or 2 bad beats, rinse and repeat.

Malta was so good, hightlights including first 12 hour drinking session for a long time, shout out to Ger, Rodders, Glen and all others involved.

Oh yes got locked in a club at 2pm and got back to hotel at 8pm, still can't decide whether this was a highlight or lowlight tbh.

If you get a chance to go to Malta next year with Apat do it, great people, nice place and decent games.

Won bits and pieces online nothing major after Malta but whilst leading an mtt on Party got an email re Visit Iceland (not the shop for a prawn ring), decided to go over there for a few days. I didn't win the mtt but booked it anyway.

Again would highly recommend Iceland, a couple of trips were cancelled but one tour went ahead and if you close your eyes tight and see the blackness that was my view of the Northern Lights, never mind can always go back, especially to wallow in the blue lagoon hot springs, again highly recommended.

Counties Event next in Manchester, Stuart winning 2 of his games but with me Phil and Lily as solid hardworking midfielders we managed a Day 2.

Got heads up in my sng to make the final table but couldn't take it down, lost half my stack in first hand AA vJJ but didn't go broke (obligatory bad beat) so done ok to finish 2cd.

Again different format and highly enjoyable, alas no cash.

Spent a fortune in last few months so was nice to finish 2cd in BH on Sky las week for £1k which paid for Christmas.

Got some weekend trips lined up for next year including Blackpool, Krakov, Chester Races, possibly Vienna but all that depends upon work which I start on Monday, had a Daniel Blake moment with the authorities so just took a zero hour contract job as couldn't be pestered with bureaucracy of Universal Credits.

As said on previous occasions always wanted to end this with a trophy, never been about the cash (ok maybe a little bit).

At our annual charity do over Christmas was presented with this which was totally out of the blue and highly unexpected so after  7 years this will definitely be the final post, I will still be playing, just getting ready to play Leeds £100k tonight,(didn't go as planned), but not at the same sort of volume and frequency.

Controversy in the last game of the year last night £30/£30 BH 2 off cash i jam A4 BB snap calls obv A10+, dealer mucks villains cards into the muck, he kicks off, td comes over and asks dealer did cards touch muck, she replied No pretty obvious that they had everyone knew, i said i am happy to play it out even though i knew it was 30% chance for me, he holds with Ak which he told td he had dont disbelieve as its the only hand he would play, jam next 3 hands into A10, AJ and Ak, almost get a treble up on last jam with 99 but K on river led to a bubble in the last game of the year, may as well finish on losing a flip, you gotta win them.

 
Thanks to all who have read and interacted with this over the years it's been fun, run good, be lucky, stay healthy.









                                                     THE END
