In this episode of Man vs Manflu, Manflu wins :(

Really not feeling 100%, eyes and nose streaming, headache etc - don"t think playing what should be an aggroish £100 6max is the best idea, I"d just be flushing everyone"s money away - so apologies guys, going to have to bail on this one.

This is excellent news. It means we are going to get some return.

Hate you.

Though to be fair you are in the perfect position to comment on my boss commentating as you spent all the FTs in the booth with me.

Thur 30th May - £75+8 PLO - 13/33

Borderline decision to play, but dragged my bloodshot eyes to Portsmouth. Everyone thought I was drunk, though one person did suggest heroin. Not sure if he was joking. Still, expected dire play and was planning on nitting it up as a result.

Rock up to the casino half an hour early, or so I thought. Tournament had started at 6, awesome. Not the worst thing as I"d have been pretty tight anyway - as long as I pick up some hands I should be able to exhibit superior pre-flop hand selection and get my stack in in dominating spots. So I regged during level 3.

Unfortunately never saw a hand. I"d have smashed up a Badugi or PLO8 tournament though. Anything vaguely playable was UTG - AKK9 which was raised before folding to the BBs call then pot donk on a horrible flop, complete with table chat. Limped called 7765ds which didn"t hit too hard on an A95 flop. Saw absolutely nothing in late position or the blinds.

Never got above starting stack and wasn"t too shy about raising, only picked up one small double up with KJT6ds v QQT8 so no idea how I got this deep! Eventually raised A932 with clubs on the button and ran into AA98 with nut clubs - great spot :\

Sat 1st June - £200+20 APAT Masters - 24/85

Finally shook off the manflu, and rocked up at Wembley for a really bitty tournament. Can"t really think of anything to describe it. Sat on 4 of the 9/10 tables on day 1 which wasn"t overly helpful, but I had really good seats on the first three but unfortunately I had the worst seat in the tournament for the last one and day 2. CL Nicky who was putting the pressure on to my direct left, Julian Fournier who was quite erratic to his left and then the eventual winner on his left (who"d followed me around the other tables, and also had the stack and ability to put pressure on).

Never got a great deal above average at any point. Made an error with 99 to get it in vs KK in a big pot fairly early, but river bailed me out there. Lost a huge pot midway through day 1 against the eventual winner, 89 in the BB vs his J9 on 9439Q, leaving me with 3400 at 400/800/100. Of the next 20 hands I must shove around 70% of them, I get back up to averageish despite doubling two people up! Sadly my best run of cards coincided with my short stack status, if I had a big stack I may have ended up being involved in big pots - but my stack size just always seemed to be wrong for the situation. On occasions I did hit the flop the board would generally run out pretty grimly, costing me value if not the pot (turn straight with Q9 on JT28, river pairs the board. 3bet AA and get peeled, QQx flop etc). Generally picked up chips by getting away with murder on a frequent basis!

Hated not being redrawn going into day 2, so was stuck with my nasty seat and it proved my undoing. CL had 3bet both my opens on that table, but when I open 77 in LP and he 3bets small again, I have a really awkward stack to 4bet with, and a bit of value in my hand getting 4:1 pre, so just peel OOP and get involved down the streets when he flops trips on a paired board.

Leaves me with about 12BBs, get one shove through, then shove my resultant 15BBs UTG with ATo. UTG+2 calls for pretty much stacks with KQ with only the 5 people left behind. Flop KKx. Bleurgh.

So when all is said and done. I played exactly 50% of the amount reserved for buy-ins, so at least you guys see half your stake money back.

Sort of got close without ever threatening a cash, which is most unlike me. I normally crash and burn spectacularly in a massive pot, but these tournaments were pretty grindy :(

Have dropped PMs, please drop me your bank details.

Thanks for the backing, sorry I couldn"t bink a profit in the Masters for us all!
