Long Live ESPN Classic - An audience with Muhammad Ali - How did Dickie Davies get that gig?

I love how Ali looks like he has new clothes on, and the whole audience is in a time warp.

Next up : Superstars 1975 : European Final : could be a late night!

Tournament Referee : Dick Button

Results to follow!

APAT Champions
Hendon Mob

For the forum event ... "terrible" odds om the APAT Champions ... but good to have an interest!

Poker later??

Sunday - super sleepy - bit migrainey (if that is a word?)

I went for a walk and visited my mother who had cooked two fine loaves for me to admire ...

Whilst I admired them I recalled a fine comment by the ticket collector on a train ...

Coin Flip MTT"s

Maybe zero skill poker is the way forward!

A $200 ticket won for $15 of nonsense ... basically you are all in until we have the winners ...

Game one ... I have the best hand to start (JJ) but not great vs 8 others!

Game two ... KJ ... flop KKJ ...

Game"s three and four ... no joy ... will play one or two more ... and get shaped up for today $200k event.

... Coin Flip II

Another $200 ticket for $5 ... so $370 up in terms of tickets ... ridiculous ... surely got to go for the hat-trick!

Sunday Night : No poker as in Lapland

Wanted to read the APAT results - so am on the siightly clockwork through the TV internet.

Here is my synopsis - Lapland is quiet!

Resort is funky - 8 lane bowling alley to ourselves - finished off with a 204 - a reasonable
score given the rust.

Looking forward to Betfair Live.

Lapland is nearly over ... down to Minus 18 degrees now ... so a good day for some souvenir shopping!?

Snowmobiles were great fun - briefing was all about them handling best at c30kph ... but also that the national speed limit applies on forest tracks (I think this is 80kph) ... for good of for bad no further juice beyond 70kph but it"s a weird leap of faith going at that speed in the dark ...

Ice Go-Karting - tremendous - chance to drive sideways and only hit snow banks.

Yesterday we went for a snowshoeing adventure - 1m of powder - great fun on the way up - hilarious on the way down as I tumbled and fell about 10 times without injury.

I have never skied but it feels like this would be an ideal place to learn - amazing snow - and few people - mmm - must preserve knees - must preserve knees ... pondering ... L

Betfair Live:

End of day 1 : 73,300 vs c60k Average.

Good event - and ahead of average all day once I turn a straight vs top pair playing 54o (late position).

Won my races ...

Looking forward to day 2:

I-pod home on the tube leveraged the following lyric in my head ...

"He knew what he wanted to say
But he didn"t know how to word it
The dirty little Herbert ..."

What does this mean?

I will think about this today ... as I patiently await a time to bet out with 54o ...

Quick spin on the $50+4 - $12k Turbo on Betfair ... QTs shove into A5 ... no help ...

Finished 8th of 171 in the Betfair Live for £1200 ... no obvious mistakes ... ran out of cards ... KTo re-shove vs the "button steal" ... holding A9s ... 40/60 ... but no help ...

Of course another spot could have been chosen ... but happy with choices made.

Looking forward to the Betfair Live in Tallinn.

This - Tallinn is one hell of a city - I think an outing is just the thing that is required - PaulieD might make this one  ;D

Seems unlikely at this juncture unless I bink big-time.

Exit hand 44 shove called by KJ and KQ ... perfect ... well for about 1s ... flop KJJ ...

Phase 2

83o s typical raising hand ... flat called ... 843 2 spades ... fingers crossed for a big pair ... I bet ... he raises ... I shove ... he turns 88 ... mmm

Was well up ... minorly down ...

Earlier - a quick exit in the $16k - flush draw and two overcards no good ...
