Maybe I should just play games of chance ...

Blackjack to kill some time ... +£200 play £10 a hand ... ridiculous run ...

Poker ... straight vs flush ... KK in the straddle raiser before me ... I re-raise ... not quite enough to chase the raiser away ... flop is 467 ish ... I bet out they push all in ... I call ... they hold 66 ... the number of the BEAST ...

I guess I should have said it was £1/£2 straddle for £4 ... initial raise to £12 ... I re-raise to £30 ... they are playing £140 ... I have them covered ... once the flat call is made hand plays itself ... we were six handed at the time.

Nice of the Vic to give us a private table ... 5% rake ... max £10 ... might be the way forward ...

Anyway ... I clawed me way back to a minor £14 loss on the poker ... +£186 on the night ... as they headed for the craps tables and I headed home ...

Beautiful cash session ends in tears ... KK vs AA 5 handed ... $77 profit ... last pot for $422 ... sigh ...

However the weekend has arrived ... I even got some rake back ... smile.

In a mega mix up - I am due to be "filming" a TV game show (pilot) tomorrow ... errr 8.30am start ... about an hour a way ... sigh ...

Oh how I remember the days of Going for Gold ... and Henry Kelly ... the Eurovision song contest of quiz shows ... (I failed to get through the audition ... perhaps my personality was not wooden enough??)

I think if I was reincarnated as a tree ... I would choose the cherry ... if that how it works?

... Saturday night cash ... all a bit to aggressive and volatile ...

I could have escaped a massive hand ... 6 of spades turn me the low flush ... but I refused to believe the re-raise ... pocket sixes for the full house ...

Earlier I got involved with A6s ... by the turn it is x7AA ... and the money must go in ... vs A8 ... low card and I am out ... mmm

I hate it when poker runs come to end ...

Work to do Sunday morning ... and a ten course Chinese feast tonight ... seems a bit over the top ... will it be ten great courses ... if so I eat FTW.

Last night we went to Rodizio Rico at the o2 ... Brazilian ... meat feast ... grab a salad and then sit at your table whilst the waiters bring you endless meat ... a walking cavery though the meat probably a bit better than average ... some of the steak was but very rare and excellent ...

Poker ... poker ... where is the poker ... I think next up will be the $400k g"tee GSOP 1 next Sunday ...

... well if you exclude the absurd Coin Flip qualifier to Seville - step 3 is tonight at 6.50pm - $200+10 ticket for currently two $5k packages ... all players are all in every hand until we reach the qualifiers - ten seated ... mmm

I can barely bear to speak about last night"s cash session ... (last hand)

KK vs JTs aipf for 50ish BB ... the end ...

(I was still +$78 - but I like to think of a cash session as a story - I raised every hand with a smile and just as the monster came over the hill with the re-pop ... I failed to notice the Juggernautic Lorry behind it ... flush on the river ... Good night Vienna ... cue Ultravox ... off to bed ...

Cash nightmares continuing in a very lively online home game ...

£400 shipped mainly due to ...

Turning low straight vs higher straight
AT vs AJ into AxxAx
Losing with trip 6s vs Flush on the river

This was all 4/5 handed so pretty gauling ...

As ever ready to attack back ... so lumping into Ashton at 7/4 to score today ... it will be weird to be rooting for the England rout ... but has to be down ... as low as 5/6 elsewhere ...

So no Rugby rout ... but just enough to scrape me home on the handicap ...

$50k Euro Grand Prix just underway on Betfair ...

383 runners - 15 min levels - 6 out in the first 5 minutes - standard.

102nd of 383 ... decided to limp with JJ early position hoping for a shove ... ends up 5 handed ... flop 832 rainbow ...

Happy to check ... and wait for the steal ... but vs 33 and no help ...

Overall - perhaps a message to play a bit more ABC??

Earlier lost AQ vs KT and rammed JJ into QQ ... so always stuggling ... though would have gone above average with a JJ double up at the end ...

Tomorrow night - I have a $200 ticket to the GSOP Event 1 - $400k g"tee and also a $120 ticket to qualify for Betfair Tallinn Live ...

Also likely to play the Black Belt Live in London ... busy times.

Bidding for a poker free March ... looks tough with so many tempting sweeties before me ...

I think the rules of the game must be to do some alt activity in lieu of poker.

E.g March 10th - I am being lined up for "informal singing, followed by drinks" ... in a church ...

c.f. drinks, followed by informal singing ... always ...

Practice makes perfect so I am listening to ABBA GOLD ... followed by the selected (my selection) of Elton John ...

Perhaps they will want to sing "Ding Dong merrily on high"??? (I love this mirthful song)

Progress report to follow ...

No poker in March - who said that?

Slow start in $16k g"tee on Betfair - 195 runners - need some cards!

(Out early AK vs 99 - played too loose earlier)

Nice one Louis.  You managed a day.

If you suggest giving up poker for Lent, do you want one of us to give you slap and tell you to not be so stupid ?    ;D
