Another Norfolk poker player
« on: October 15, 2008, 13:42:22 PM »
hi been playing apat events for a while, didnt do too bad at the razz event in london(i was happy with the way i played even though i was out in 30th place). ive played in the yarmouth regional 3 times in season 2 but was the first one out every time but i was a blaster with my chips. but recently i have studied and learned a lot more on tournament play and chip management. on the 1st of october i played in a £25 double chance freeze out and out of 40 people i came third and cashed for £154. not bad for my first final table at yarmouth grosvenor. i do play online but im bloody useless at sng"s but omaha cash games are what i really like playing(may not be making a fortune but covering my sng habit).
i also play at the butchers arms in beccles, im in a league and currently 3rd in the league(one final table apperance more and im second) and that is a good fun place to play. its strange but everyone at the pub always ask about a hand they played and ask for my opinion. i cant tell them too much cos i dont want the atm"s there becoming dangerous players, if they want to learn then they should spend the money i spent on books on poker to learn the basics.

Will be posting blogs when i play on friday

good luck at the tables

Welcome aboard. It looks like those of us who play in the Yarmouth regional are taking over the world. Of the small number of us who took part, there was one who finished in the top ten of the season two rankings (no prizes for guessing who!) one player in the England team for the forthcoming international tournament and now two active bloggers. I"ve even heard whispers of a forum being launched so that we can take part in the team challenge if it happens again in season three.

played yesterday evening at my local home game down geldeston. was absolutely card dead. the best hand was  qd qh and a flop of  6h 6s qc but i was playing too tight so a preflop raise and everyone else would have smelt a rat. oh well off to the pub tomorrow hope things improve

bloody pub poker, might aswell not bothered to go. after the first break when the people who bust out before the first break get another 1500 chips but the blinds at this point are 200 small and 400 big. the big stacks also get this 1500. i usually use this 1500 to attempt to knock out a player as a freeroll as its chips i have not won. here"s the thing, the utg player went all in for 1500, i had  ad1 kc so i reraised all in with approx 8000 total and someone else called my all in(had me covered, whoops i thought). in the end the big stack and i split the remainder of the pot(both had ak) and the lucky bugger tripled up with the trash hand of  jc 8c, he said he went in cos its suited. i dont want to tell him that suited cards give you only a 2% extra chance cos he wont want to shove with s*"t if he learns its technically the wrong move or was my move wrong. answers on a postcard to the usual address. will be on pokerstars tonight. let you know how i get on.

maybe but he was utg, had to beat 4 short stacks plus the bigger stacks with that move. i admit it was the right move. shame the ak never wins for me. it was just annoying cos of that triple up he then had enough to fight the battle and win. could not play last night, had a incident with a deer, all my friend just said "oh deer". they all think they are comedians. will be sng"ing on poker stars tonight. Good Luck on the tables.

just a question, i dont have a hectic lifestyle but i dont have any time at the moment to play online poker, it seems that when i have my laptop in front of me someone texts or calls or msn chat and ask me if i can look at there car or can i give someone a lift. i suppose they are trying to save me money(recession, better tighten my belt) but i really want a mental few hours online. can anyone help me, i suppose i should say no really.

Please help

I"m the same but with PCs. I look at the positive side of such requests - I"m making money rather than donking it off!!

You might want to try playing through the night (FT run good tourneys for US donks players) when it"s less likely you"re gonna get interrupted. On the few nights where I can keep my eyes open past 11pm (not very often), I do this.

five sit and go"s today at the moment and didnt come near the money, ran int aces so many times, must remember fish do get good cards once in a while and make me feel like im the fish(im in denial, im not a fish i think, just a baby shark that looks like a fish). now having a twenty minute break before playing again, trying not to have a cigarette(given up for 2 days but really could do with one). will let you know how i get on.

good luck at the tables

finally cashed in one but got knocked out by aces again, why do i walk into them all the time, now celebrating my cash and no need for the cigarette(may buy a cigar with my winnings lol). im playing down the pub in a bit so on recent form im on the receiving end of suck outs all night. will try my hardest at cash games tonight but the game is two card chicken(holdem) and i feel its my worst game.

c u soon
