Yes - life is tough!

Got to the park and they have taken the goals down ... spotted some tennis courts though ... for another day.

Tennis tomorrow in the city - will be baking hot.

Squash on Thursday - will be ice cool.

In between I may play the £200 freeze-out at the International Club (or £50 freeze-out on Thursday night.

20/20 World Cup has crept up a little bit - watching the warm up marches now - watched the @ The Oval years ago - it is fun - but not really cricket (as I was taught it).

Ticket prices ... £60 (or £50 out of London) ... Err ... no! (Perhaps cheaper tickets were available)

Maybe the West Indies will actually try??? I rate their current Test team as the world ever ... just disgusting in terms of effort.

Tough afternoon.

a/ Trying to qualify for various things ... TT vs 88 ... into quads.

b/ Playing Pokerstars ... 77 flop 732 (2 hearts) ... opponent has AKs (hearts) ... not the hand you need to lose to level 1.

RT +$1,846

On the positive side I ate some M&S sausages.

Made it to the $20k g"tee - another $31 spent for the $109 entry.

Also played a $22 Pokerstars event ... c1700 runners ... I went for a glory bluff ... and ran into an unhit (but still good) AA.

Lost $10 on cricket betting.

RT +$1,783 plus and winnings.

Aside the exchange rate has move to $1.64ish ... I will move to $1.60 now for this.

A very weird qualifier ... I lost 55 vs 33 vs AQs ... to quad 3s ...

Last 5 for three seats I am struggling ... push the flush draw ... giving the chip leader 1900 to call into 10k ... and he folds ... bizarre ... and although he made it ... only just having lost QQ vs JJ.

The J spiker then went through QJ vs AQ ... hitting another jack ...

This left me reflecting last night - when an opponent choose to fold with 28k to call into 95k pot versus two others (AA and KK) - it felt like a bad fold at the time - but perhaps not.

Played the Betfair $66k qualifier ... 1 from 13for $510 ticket ... and obviously I come second.

3/1 in my favour at heads up.

22 vs K8 ... to lose the advantage
A6 vs Q4 to die ... so for the second night in a row Q4 is my killer ...

In the pack in the $20k g"tee - loads of hands played but no customers when I have the goods!

... and out of the $20k g"tee ...

You know when your game is up when you correctly fold 99 (vs QQ and TT) ... but the 9 flies in.

... you then die QT vs 99 ... with the 9 flying in too.

Never at the races today ... hit quite a lot ... but no customers.

Oops just rememberred I registered for the Fult Tilt freerolls ... let"s see if I am still alive!

No poker yesterday - though managed to ship $50 on a "value" bet on Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka.

In the midst of selling my Omaha seat for the WCOAP so $80 coming back there.

At the time it was to be the spur to make me learn the game (properly) ... maybe next year!

RT +$1,780

Just fired up the $8k g"tee in I-poker.

Nursing a hangover ... which is ridiculous ... didn"t drink that much ... out of practice.

No evening poker planned - instead off for Vietnamese food ...

Last night I ate a (copper) pot roasted poussin in a smoked bacon soup ... pleasing.

I-poker $8k

AA called by table chip leader.

9TJ flop ...

My push called by the flopped straight ... enough ... too many chips flying around to make re-buy sensible.

RT +$,1728

RT +$1,788

Cash game looked like ending in dust when losing to a higher straight ... but $12 became $200 starting from the epic 34 vs AK spike ...

I think all my mind can handle at the moment is the $5 re-buy on i-poker - $12.5k g"tee.

Went to a Vietnamese restaurant tonight - pretty authentic - good food ended by a weasel coffee - which is one of the weirdest thing to drink:

"This Coffee is first eaten by Weasels which then regurgitate it, no one knows why they do this but it is then collected by locals in remote forest areas and then cleaned and roasted.

It has a unique rich chocolatey flavour and is best served as an espresso with a dash of condensed milk, just as they do in vietnam."

... tasting it blind a slight hint of tobacco ...

Something to ponder ...

I-Poker $12.5k

All the money in with top pair ... called by up and down straight draw ... the overcard hit ... standard.

Pondering the Eyes Wide Shut on Betfair ...

No cards in the Eyes Wide Shut - 40th of about 100.

Looking forward to playing face to face tomorrow night.

RT +$1,608

Went to the International Club for their £50+5+5 freezeout.

85 runners - 20 min levels - no cards.

First 80 mins had JJ and AQ - I raised - they folded and checked down for my win ...

Then ran QQ into AA with 9 times BB ...no help.

Standard much worse than £200 freeze-out but that is not necessarily a good thing ...

A lot of the table chat fairly tedious.

What a jolly day!

Woke up with a sizeable hangover ... so started to surf ... and found the words "England Humbled" ...

Generally I wish England well in sport but so often they blow their own feet off ... this being a classic example.

Holland were very good but losing to Holland is surely ridiculous!

How many Dutch people play cricket?

Really annoyed by my beat at that £50. It"s not often I feel I"ve got an edge over EVERY player on my table, and would have been confident to at least FT. Getting JJ broken by a ridiculous AI call with A4o is bad enough, but when it"s by hitting trip 4s...

We"ll try the Empire next time ;)
