Hopefully a better report today!

I should add Chris Kelly very unlucky yesterday ... Aces cracked by AJ ... JJ cracked by KT heads up ...

Need a massive day to day ... but why not!?!

2.45pm kick off seems like a long time away ...

APAT TEAM EVENT - DAY 2

A long wait to start - and a very quick heads up victory over Holland.

A9 into AAx (two diamonds) ... all in ahead ... sweat on the flush draw ... but over in 9 hands (8 of which won!)

Sadly little more heads up glory for Scotland 4 points from 16 ...

STT - 3rd place - and a 13 point round into the middle of the pack.

Wales and Canada battling for glory ... so "pleased" I think to find Mr Rudders on my final STT ... last night ground down by the his rack ... this time ... I called his death shove with AK ... his feeble trembling K5 ... soon the roaring Dragon ... with a 5 first card up ... (side spew) ... that said it was a table of beats ... earlier Rudders A8 into AK ... split pot ...

Earlier still ... Colin O"Prey got jiggy with his Snowmen ... only to find a pair of Polish Kings ... flop 88x .... Wow ... last years Champions down in flames ... so much luck in running ... I guess as always ...

Well played the medalists ... great first session from them both and held on ...

Very much hungry for another bite at this next year ...

A welcome day away from the tables ... a chance to dream of nice match ups that actually hold up ...

Bought some super shirts aimed at induding headaches for my opponents tomorrow ...

Had I time I would created the following picture into a T-Shirt ...

Ate some fish ... so just about fuelled up for battle.

Day 1B

3 mins to go ... Serial raiser Gareth Cash pops things up to 7200 ish on 1500/3000 (200) ... I am all in for c24,400 ... I want called for sure ... holding 77 ... but as is the way the K6 call proves inspired (just about priced in) ... first card a King ... and a six for good measure ... spew!

Good luck to Gareth - most active on the table - though the script was for him to pay me off ... and not kill me!

Weird day ... KK paid in full by KQ into Qxx ... and then just a case of small ball and occasional stealing ... stack only at risk these twice ... AA twice and no takers ... late shoves un-called ... definately happy to take a 70% shot at a c55k pot ... but tough cheese to me ... until next year!

This scenario epitomized a fair proportion of our exit hands, a painful way to crash and burn. We must have walked under a lot of ladders recently...  ;)

Volatility seemed particularly high ... hopefully see you next year!

... well all the fun is over ... back to earth with a minor cash in Pokerstars $40k g"tee ... was in good shape only to lose JJ vs a7 ... and crippled ... oh well.

Curry has arrived - perfect cure ...

... but what is the cure for Tuesday morning and no poker?

Work?
Excercise?

These seem poor cures though - one brings money ... one energy ... both useful for fuelling/funding further exploits.

Reviewed some of the footage of the Sunday night streaming ... very illuminating ...

APAT experience - very positive - time to review the calendar!

The long slog back to parity ... -$2150

Tempted to attempt it via heads up matches ... might be madness.

1-1 in matches today ...

The one I lost ... I hit the straight on the river ... vs flopped quad 6"s ... OMG!

WCOOP is tempting me ... kicks off on Sunday ... $1.25m g"tee ... $215 six max ...

There is also a 4 max ... OMG ... so tempting ...

Two tournaments - few cards ...

In one I push K-rag into A-rag and lose ...in the other I call with A-rag vs the K-rag push ... and lose ... it feels standard ...

Feels like quite a while since I ran good ... save it for the APAT tomorrow I guess ...

Poker Free week ... happily about to end!

WCOOP 19 - $109 - $1.25m g"tee - 10 min Levels - 3000 chips. (6pm)

So I guess 12500+ runners ... an absurb event ... but hopefully a great event too!

I will need to acquire vast supplies of red bull ... and then get knocked out in two hours!

WCOOP 19

1887th of 11085 ... (1440 paid) ... and super spewed out ...

Flopped a house when in for cheap in the BB vs two opponents.

78o in 778 (Two Hearts)

Versus J7 - late min raiser &
AT (Hearts) - who is doing the betting for me ...

Turn is an Ace ... to open up the absurd runner-runner Ace defeat ...

River is a Jack ... and I am out ... instead of top 100 ... with 40k vs 17k Average ...

Money in with an 85% chance to triple up ...

What next?
