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 ;)


Final Table would have been interesting.

Gandi who won it is a very good player.

He beats me heads up 99 vs AT in my first and only cash at the old gutshot!

Starting to get tempted by the £100 freezeout tonight!

Get involved in the Double Shoot Outs on Poker Stars.

In the classic style I won the bubble with AA vs QQ ... I hit the Ace ... he hit the flush!

Excellent format and lots of scope to make money ... was starting to eye the $215 ticket ... but poker isn"t like that!

Earlier I had come back from 240 chips (of 10,500) ... won an epic heads up ... including a self induced disconnect (for half my chips).

Oh well.

In the Derby - I lost £20 on Rip Van Winkle - which came too late - annoying.

RT +$1,565

Enjoyed the ludicrous 7 over match Scotland Vs New Zealand.

West Indies looking pretty good vs Australia.

The England defeat seems so long ago (now) or did I just watch it too often?

Cannot win a AK vs A6 ... makes life hard.

Made 9th of 91 in the Betfair Eyes wide shut for a profit of $80.

A6 vs AJ vs AQ helped ...

Bed.

Here we go again ... Sunday Warm Up is the target ... make the money and don"t lose 99 vs Q4!

Went to the Tate Modern this morning to play on their installation - tilting boards and tightropes and so on - very good fun.

Their sausage ciabatta is nailed on and home for 1pm and the cricket.

S Africa a scary proposition.

Pakistan maybe scarier for England.

Looking forward to the APAT game.

Back to Scotland tomorrow - leaving the dust and grime of London behind for a while.

Afternoon pre-amble ... flopped quad jacks ... lost to quad jacks ...

Got had by a horror call - flush draw with one card to come - standard.

Scotland in among all their inept fielding - look like getting catch of the tournament!

Weird.

180th of 3996 in the Poker Stars Warm Up ... when JJ loses to 99.

Would have gone to the middle of the pack.

Luck earlier - QQ vs KK and Q7 vs A6 when against the wall.

Nice to make the money two weeks running - but better to bust out on hand 1 and get really deep ... not like I am going to get the choice though!

First hand all the chips did go in 888 vs pocket aces ... horrible play from the Aces ... though I nearly folded with straight and flush on the board.

Overall I played things pretty well ... remained patient ... but always looking to push and not call.

Very tiring waiting for the big pay day that will (at some point) come.

APAT - no cards - never got about the starting chips ...

Looking forward to the Online 10000 chip event next week.

RT +$1,840

$10 re-buy on Poker Stars ... $70k g"tee

$81 to make the break ...

QQ flop Jxx ... called by AJ ... Turn J ...

Folded 77 to three raises ... would have cracked the aces.

Doesn"t feel like it is going to happen tonight!

The main difference between online and live poker is that the deck is constantly shuffled online.

So a different action from you may have resulted in a totally different board

If that true on all sites?

I both like and hate this ...

Once you fold ... it is over ... I am happy with that online or face to face ... always need to be happy to make the correct fold.

Doing a lot better after the break.

$70k g"tee

317 left ... 288 paid ... way below average but 13 BB"s

Feeling lucky ... but that could be erroneous.
