I think I have discovered a tournament designed especially for me, namely the Pokerstars saturday micro $3.30 $30000 guaranteed. The saturday midday start time is perfect as it allows enough time for friday night"s beer to no longer be an issue, its on the only day of the week when I can guarantee I won"t be distracted/disturbed and more importantly if I do run deep, I won"t have to worry about whether I will have to find out whether it really is possible to sleepwalk through a day at work. This has my name on it.


Or then again I may just chuck away all my chips in less than an hour"s play................

OK, lets try again. Second on the list for the day is the $20 double stack on Blue Square. No doubt I"l do the same as this morning and throw my chips at anyone who asks nicely for them.

2.5 hours of card dead nothingness from that one. Luckily my departure was 1 minute before the start of the $5 $15000 guaranteed thing on Stars, so I"m going to win that instead

Unfortunately I won sweet FA on the latter as well. Blue Square"s single table SNGs are an absolute bloody goldmine at the minute though  ;D

No poker for me tonight. Blame this lot who dared to play a gig at which I felt compelled to launch crowd-surfers, get dragged into circle-pits and occasionally burst into what could, to the untrained eye, have been mistaken for a nearly 42 year old man with no co-ordination trying to dance

One of the most pleasing aspects of last night"s gig came in the shape of the support acts. Both from Dublin, both should be stars in their own right, but of the two, the opening act was probably only the second support I"ve seen in about 5 years who I"ve instantly thought should be headlining festivals and arenas ASAP. I only chanced upon this video tonight and I think its a work of brilliance. Its simple,raw and direct and illustrates the song more eloquently than anything I"ve seen in a long time.Maybe its because I"m a union shop steward who has just voted for strike action

P.S. I"d thought it best to give the music top billing over the poker tonight.I was in the usual $15000 guaranteed affair on Stars and was knocked out when the 10 of my opponent"s A 10 gave him a runner-runner straight and I don"t do bad beat stories, oh no.

Always remember the first rule of poker blogging; never, ever say how well you are running. After my comment of a few days ago, I"ve endured a run of 10 SNGs with only 1 third place cash to show for it. Tut, tut, schoolboy error.
  Nevermind, not only is tomorrow my 42nd birthday, but I"m off to see this lot

Cheers for the birthday wishes guys. Things didn"t quite go as planned as the Motorhead gig was cancelled. The official explanation was that Lemmy has an unspecified hand injury as a result of, well, nobody knows. Nobody I know of who was going to the gig (and that includes a mate who writes for one of the big heavy metal magazines), buys that explanation.  The suspicion seems to be that maybe 40 years of a bottle of Jack Daniels a day and enormous speed intake is finally beginning to tell.
   I resorted to plan C, which was a trip to my local cinema to watch "Tower Heist".  Lemmy, its your fault I had to watch that pile of poo.
