just realised why i am not keen on online poker, playing microstakes cash on stars, sitting with a couple of dollars i was dealt  9d 9c on the bb, utg limp, sb made up and i bubble it up to 8c, call call, flop  ts :2d: 4h, sb bets 15c, i call as i have bet him off pots on the turn but the utg player raises to 60c, sb folds (i was right) and i think that utg player is making a move so i shove for the rest of it $1.54, he snap calls and has  th 4d, turn was a ten.

oh well, that was the freeroll profits blown, i will reload soon and play slightly higher stakes (5-10c and 10-20c) and definatley play the low limit 8 game(it is profitable) as i enjoy betting the razz hand to suddenly realise its stud hi.

hello everyone, im sorry i have not posted anything for a while but ive had a break from the game, for a few months i didnt play a single hand but this last month ive been doing bad things with money(roulette machine at coral and playing fruit machines) just to get the "BUZZ" that i used to get but it is costing me money and also a good friend of mine and poker nut passed away a few weeks ago, we used to talk about how it would be cool to play some big tourneys in the uk but unfortunatley he passed before taking a shot at the big time. With this in mind its time to say "Sod It" to my fiance that ive been listening to and get playing and maybe take the shot that we both dreamed of.

Tonight is a £30 freezeout at the grosvenor casino, 6k starting stack so a reasonable amount of creative play. will report how it goes on in the morning.

last night at the grosvenor was terrible, i raise with ace-ten, opponent has ace-king when we both hit a flop and i eventually had to shove with 7-8 suited and got snap called by a monsterous jact ten(it was for over half his stack) so im not off to a good start but i felt good playing, i seemed to forget (not being too nasty as everyone who plays at the grosvenor are nice to talk to) that the standard of play is terrible(pure gamblers) and next time im well prepared for aniliation(check spelling).

not too sure of when im next playing as i dont have a bankroll(its now the wedding/holiday/snap-on toolbox fund) but it should be next week so will post what goes on and hopefully some results soon.

just been losing a lot of money playing rush poker on full tilt. lost it all after being tilted by runner runner. never mind, got to tell myself that im not an online player and stick to live, oh well, only lost £25 so all in all a good learning curve.

not too sure of any live poker coming up(apart from the gukpt club event in yarmouth) but will keep you posted as and when i play

im running quite deep in the full tilt mini ftops number 11 event, just got above average stack(33k approx) and only a few folds to make the money, then play like a bat out of hell and try to run deep. wish me luck

i shoved with pocket 9"s and got called by ace-10 off, ten hit the flop and im out but a little bit of cash and a bit of a confidence boost(plus a few bounty"s helped aswell). i did outlast a few full tilt pros so im happy but a first prize of $34k would have been nice. oh well next time ill get 1st

hello again, sorry their has not been many posts but had a holiday to tenerife for ten nights and been busy with private car work. enough of that boring stuff, time to talk poker.

sunday 11th october i went to holt to play a £30 50k stack freezeout that was run by andy and caroline cunningham-brown, first i would like to say many thanks for running such a great day and a super buffet. the poker itself was fun but i made a move at a pot with pocket tens and walked into pocket aces, that wiped most of my stack and i busted eventually when my queens ran into ace queen off and his ace of clubs matched the board as four clubs were dealt on the board. not a problem, nice hand, well played one and all. was a brilliant day though.

yesterday (sat 16th october) was the gukpt club championship in great yarmouth. 43 runners, 10k stack, 40 minute clock. i was pumped up for this event, players take their seat, dealers shuffle up and deal, im on the button, folded to me, i look down at pocket aces, i raise and steal the blinds, i show the aces and take the 75 in blinds, what annoy"s me though is that i won the first hand and the curse of winning the first hand was spelled over me. after 30 minutes i rolled my stack to 12k but went card dead to the break but i made a mistake and tried to get something going and after the break i had a stack of about 7k. with the blinds at 100-200 with 25 antes i got involved in a pot, 3rd position raises to 600, as it goes round there is two callers, im on the big blind with  kc ts, with reasonable odds and a just above average hand i called, the flop was  jd td kd, i check, 3rd position raises to 1200 but the way he bet rang an alarm bell in my head, i noticed when he is betting a draw he threw his chips in and when he bet a made hand he gently pushed his bet in, the 1200 was thrown in and the other players folded so i decided to call at this spot and if no diamond comes then ill move at the pot, the turn was i believe the   7c, i check to check raise and he bet 3000, that bet was a problem as he only had 6k before the turn so his bet was pot commiting himself but the 5k chip was thrown in and i still was using the reliable tell, i worked out the possible hands and worked out that i was ahead at this point so i shoved and he was in the tank but he had to call anyway because of the pot odds and the chips he would have left and the cards were in the air, he shows  ad1  th, i was spot on with my read but the dealer dealt the  :as: and i was out. what a bummer. never mind, there will be another tourney soon. watch this space i will take down a big tourney soon maybe the wsop main event 2011 or the £30 freezeout in yarmouth next week who knows.

good luck to all

hi all, i forgot about the tourney at yarmouth last week but im in action this friday, its the biggest game in lowestoft, i am having a home game for crippling sums of money (£5 per game, should get 2-3 games done) and if i run well then i might buy in for the european championship at coventry.
