Shuffle up and deal.

A good 36 hours away from the table - nice food at my friend"s restaurant - and walks by the sea.

Poker Stars $40k g"tee start at 6pm ... looks like 400 runners @ $100+9.

RT +$1,392 + any winnings.

Wow that was quick ... lost trip jacks to a flush and trip jacks to a full house ... to be fair I didn"t need to be in either hand ...

Oh well!

Fire up the $30k and a $5k head ups tournament.

RT +$1,359

Looks like I will get most of this back on S Africa beating England 1.69 at the off. (Now 1.05)

$30k - decent start in hour one - no risks up to 7k from 3k start - still 2400 left!

Through one round of my Heads Up in a facile victory.

South Africa looking good - Collingwood isn"t a captain.

Vegas food debate is making me hungry ...

No poker today.

Had a fascinating conversation with the guy who does my garden ... or rather who should be doing my garden ... I met him a mile from my house.

Highlights.

They are 250 types of bees.

"We should build a bridge between Silloth and Southerness ... this would be six miles across the Solway Firth(the sea) ... but would save drivers going to Ireland 84 miles ..."

The part in between is but a daze ... but I like this idea of building this bridge ...

I am sure it would cost less than the millemium dome ... and surely be much more useful ...

I love people with random thoughts - ideas - and a grander sense of who they are.

I also discovered a Swallow"s nest on my balcony ... which is pretty cool ... weird how city life can alienate you from nature ... I might start a wildlife diary ... as is the tradition.

I also arranged an appointment to buy a fresh sea trout tomorrow morning - which is very pleasing.

And this Louis is why you play poker, so as not to have days like that.   ;D

Hope your weekend is profitable.

I should have added that I placed my Terracotta Lions outside my house to welcome my girlfriend from London.

I also have two mini wasps nests - perhaps dormant.

In terms of my wildlife diary - perhaps I should mention the foxes which used to live in my garden in Walthamstow.

Scottish Online will my first poker of the weekend ... hopefully a Scottish winner!

Pimms for lunch the ideal prep" for poker in the evening.

I find it strange that Pimms suggest putting orange in a jug of Pimms is optimal.

I would expect the blueberry to be a better option ...

Time to have a go at New Zealand beating Pakistan at cricket ... just under even money ... looks good to me.

The Umer Gul express has spoiled my happiness ... great bowling though ...

RT +$1,304 ... my bid to get back to zero gathering pace!

RT +$1,249

30th of 92 in the APAT event.

Pushed AK into AA.

Same player had given me the big blind special when I had limped with 66 flop 454 ... BB ... Q4

Made good folds in the first hour - well I think they were.

Maybe miss played an AQ ... which could have either chipped me up or killed me ... cost me very little ... and no risk ... in the 25 BB range ... mmm ... a chance to press fire missed ... sometimes when you fire top pair is way not enough!

Overall a slightly weak preformance ... but not escape at the end.

RT +$956 with Sunday Warm up in play.

The aggressive charge not the best way to maintain bank roll but trying to shoot down one of the big ducks ...

A massive yellow duck at the poker circus ... I have a howitzer strapped to my back so wish me luck!

RT +$1,267

622th from 4320 in the Sunday Warm Up ... for $311 return.

First hand after the bubble 99 vs AA.

Had been card dead for the 45 mins before.

Good end to the weekend - following tough times - smile.

RT +$1,214

No joy in the Scottish Open qualifier ... 15th of 70 ... with 9 qualifying.

A7 vs KJ defeat set up the need for a 55 push into 66 ...

Played a Poker Stars $60k g"tee - $10 re-buy ... lost with AA (over pair) vs flush draw to got 20th of about 1,500 ... not dead but took enough edge off to call with AK for the perceived race ... actually vs AA ...

Quite happy with poker played ... good spirit in the APAT
