1st Break. (Betfair $20k)

13th of 95 left (159 started) - 18 paid.

Weird hour until right at the end when KK held up and was paid by AQ (Q flop).

Before that

AA
KK
KK
AKs and no action!

Still handily placed ...

Final tabled the league game last night, out in 7th when my AQ ran into Qs, but Leeds won and retained the top spot! SNGs going okay, cash... awful! Not Getting the chance to play many MTTs, and thats what I like best. Too much sport, and too much work. Hopefully that will change soon.


Well played last night. (I couldn"t play due to visitors)

Edinburgh top - though I am only 5th ranked of the Edinburgh players (and lots behind!)

Going well tonight.

1st round Vegas qualifier going pretty well.

3rd from 7 for 2 $550 seats.

Chip Leader prone to be a little loose perhaps ... I have position.

Chances.

Oh ******.

AK loses to K2 push ... 5th place for 2 seats ... not too impressed with that ...

Luck in running not there today ... blinds pushing up ... slow going.

Watching Poker on Sky tonight - Marc Goodwin getting robbed - too much luck in running - unless mega slow structure ... even then!?

Bed time now ...

... not sure how inspired I am for tomorrow ...

Perhaps that means I will go and play face to face!

There will a 20-25 runner £25 freeze out at the International Club - starting at 2pm today - but happy to play elsewhere.

There will be cash after this.

Despite the field size good structure and will take 4/5 hours to win.

You would need photo ID to become a member if not already.

I will PM you my mobile.

(still half asleep - and a little "work" to do)

Just came 6th of 16 in the £25 freezeout at the International (New Gutshot)

The end hand pretty disappointing.

I have 15,000 chips. Blinds 400/800

Action before me - limp - raise to 2,300 (I think)

All in from me.

Initial raiser quickly calls for 11,600 chips total.

KT (diamonds)

Flop

Queen-Jack diamonds.

Turn

Nice of diamonds for a straight flush - would have had a large chip lead.

Nothing to say really - bad call rewarded.

RT +$2,764.

Looked to qualify for the Betfair $20k g"tee.

2.5 qualifiers ... out in fifth ... money in with top pair ... un-ace spikes the river. (-$21)

Played some cash - no cards - up and down - marginal calls going the wrong way (-$105)

Bought into the $20k direct for $109.

RT +$2,525 plus any winnings.

Tough few days in terms of late beats.

1st Break

62nd of 110 from 167 - 18 paid.

Nothing really happening - few playable hands.

KK - UTG - Standard Raise - no action.

Just thinking back to how bad a call and outdraw I suffered earlier.

KK called by KTs for all his chips.

Break 2

The return of the Kings.

Standard re-raise with KK - two callers.

Flop Kxx all Hearts ...

I move all in ... called by 68 Hearts ... but the board pairs to move me to 23rd of 44 with 18 paid.

Feels like I am surfacing a giant variance curve at the moment ... up and down but the skill is drowned by the variance.

It"s a weird feeling - all you can try to do is get the money in good - thereafter anything can happen!

Let"s see if the luck holds?

Bad Beats are bad enough but when they are on the back of bad calls they leave me quite dazed.

I came 10th of 21 in the International Club £200 Freeze Out Tonight - albeit I sold 25% of myself.

Played well through the first 100 mins to reach 16,000 (starting at 10k) only one runner eliminated at this stage.

Card dead for the next 100 mins but stole enough to survive.

With the blinds biting I got doubled up with QQ calling an A4 push.

Blinds 800/1600 Ante 200 - I now have 14,400 chips.

UTG raised to 4500 - we are 5 handed at this point.

I go all in for 14,400 with AJ

9,900 to call ... monster dwell before calling and flipping QJ ... flop is QJx ...

I would have moved to 32,200 of the 210,000 chips in play ... great shout of the money ... top 4 paid ... but not to be.

Some very funny chat at the table with regards to a player who ripped up someone else"s cards in retaliation for mucking their hand in an event in Vegas ... he ripped them up mid hand ... and they were declared dead. The ripped up cards made a set of fives.

There is something of the hero in this ... and something of the villain ...

Champions League on in the background .... free beer ... a decent night.

RT +$2,250.

Feels like the RT should be more ... might take a few days off ...
