I"m posting, which means I"m not busy playing poker.

Had one of the the most ridiculous days I"ve ever had playing poker. There were about 54 players back for Day 2 and I started as one of the leaders with 122k, thinking I had a great chance of going deep. I then proceeded to lose just about every hand I played. The first 30k went quickly due to calling a raise from the BB and catching a bit of the Flop, then opening a few times from the Button, being called and either folding by the end or losing at showdown. Then I called a 28k shove with AK against someone who had A7, so that was me down to 60k.

I still had a little more than average stack and could have shut down, and probably made the money, but I decided to carry on playing, raising from the Button or seeing Flops. I played quite a few hands, and lost all of them except two - I got one Flop c-bet through and I got a double-up when I shoved AT, called by 88. Apart from that, it was one-way, just continuously reducing my stack. Finally I shoved 20k with AK, hit a K, but he made a flush, and I finished 26th (17 paid) in only the fourth level of the day.

Crazee day.

My Grandad"s brother was on the radio on Saturday, sounding quite spritely for someone who"s been dead as long as he has. The Belfast accent might be difficult for some:

Playing WCOOP Stud, courtesy of satellite. I"ve got that there George Danzer on my right. Also sharing with Ana Marquez and Sunday Millions winner Gambler4444. Lost two substantial pots to Ana already, but just won a 3-way against her and George. Fun times.

The war is over. Wars, in fact. Ireland has been at war for the last 348 years, since declaring war on Denmark in 1666. It also declared war on France in 1744, so has been fighting on two fronts since then. Now, a ceasefire has been called and both wars are over. A good thing too - we should be trying to get along as well as we can with our European partners, notwithstanding them being foreign and all, and being at war with each other doesn"t foster a good working relationship. The governments of Ireland, Denmark and France have issued a joint statement - "The ending of hostilities will allow us to work together towards a better future for Europe and focus on our common enemy, the British".

Tonight"s England A v USA match should be a corker, mainly because of Strickland"s history against English players. Daryl Peach (England B) called him "the scum of the earth" after a nasty match and he had an infamous match against Steve Davis. A manager from The Mountbatten (regular LPPL player) told me that Strickland called someone in the crowd a f**king w**ker this week.

Here he is in action:

England A came through a strange match against USA, racing to a 7-2 lead, which disappeared when the Americans tied it at 7-7.
A dry break from current US Champion Shane Van Boening gave England a chance, and they ran out to get to the hill and then broke and ran the last for a memorable win. Earlier, the day started with an upset as Austria broke and ran four racks to see off China and then Finland emerged on top from a tough match between the last two winners.

Austria 9-3 China
Finland 9-7 Philippines
Holland 9-7 Germany
England A 9-7 USA

The numbers on the Americans" backs are the number of times they have won the US Championship.

The final is tonight. Semi-finals are at 1pm:
Holland v Austria  
England A v Finland

ENGLAND WINS THE WORLD CUP


In the semi-finals, England came through a tough match against Finland 9-6, while Holland ran away with their match against Austria, losing the first but then not dropping another rack, including running out four-in-a-row from 4-1 to 8-1.

England A 9-6 Finland
Holland     9-1 Austria

The final was a cliffhanger that came down to the last two balls. In a match full of errors from both teams, Holland reached the hill first at 9-7 and should have finished it, but allowed England back in and the match went hill-hill. England then squandered their opportunity by scratching the break in the final rack to give Holland ball-in-hand. That should have been the end of it and Holland ran the first seven balls of the final rack, but then made an error to let England in. England then should have won it, but missed and that should have been it in Holland"s favour, but they were very unlucky as the cueball and eightball went either side of the nine. They hit it but left an opportunity and this time England didn"t miss and finished off the nine.

England A 10-9 Holland

I don"t often go on 2+2, but I was there last night and came across this, posted yesterday:

"Built a 140,000 stack on Day One through some steady Negreanu play and threw it all away on a Trickett.."

Amused me anyway.

Got to wondering whether it could apply to APAT. Turns out there are many possibilities:

"Built a 140,000 stack on Day One through some steady McBride play and threw it all away on a Ward".

"Built a 140,000 stack on Day One through some steady Roberts play and threw it all away on a Sharp".

"Built a 140,000 stack on Day One through some steady Williams play and threw it all away on a Tam".

"Built a 140,000 stack on Day One through some steady Rudling-Smith play and threw it all away on a Rudling-Smith".

etc
