Nice to meet you properly last night Louis. Unlucky with the exit hand - you got your chips in good so have nothing to be annoyed at other than the poker gods!

see you later today or at DTD.

Good to meet you too - I fancy a few pints of Guinness today so probably see you pretty soon!

I folded a pair of 9s slightly earlier to a re-raise ... tough marginal call (thought) ...

Poker Gods scripted a nasty plot for Rob and me - good for Phil(in the end) - in a three way pot like that the Ace or the King doesn"t hurt so much - but no escape for me this time. Having thought about it a bit more the TT push is pretty marginal - not a bad play.

Played things pretty well through the day ... not sure what my poker playing appetite is today ...

Watch the carnage for the 1st hour I guess - see what happens.

Back home now and reflecting a bit on the tournament ...

Happy with how I played - one minor error (a fold) perhaps cost me - perhaps would have killed me had I called??

Fair bit of banter on structure:

Overall all I would do is bring the antes in earlier or with more bite - reward the aggressive players a bit more.

Overall I was a tiny bit passive in the tournament but got to a point where I got the chips in when infront - need to win a few of these to go far. QQ vs TT vs AK for 50k chips and say 15th of 41 left - would have been in with a shout.

Good to hang around for day 2.

24 runners to about 12 via crapshoot - then some good (tight) poker.

Good to meet some people (names to faces) ... should have met a few more ... Nottingham and next time for that.

RT -$981

Clawed back $143 in the $20k g"tee on Blue Square.

18th of 292 - 30 paid.

Lost AKs vs 55 at the death - pot would have taken me to third - on target for $2,340 ... mmm

Just one more race ...

... tournament very up and down, got chipped up lost Q Flush to A Flush, hit quads 7s, folded 55 (would have been quads).

Won KJ push into 66

Have A9 called by K8

I-Poker and everything standing up ... but no last hurrah ... fair play to the 5s I guess ...

Louis,

Hope you had a good weekend.  It was great to meet you and unlucky with those queens at the end there.

See you at another APAT soon.

Good to meet you too.

See you in Nottingham ...

I had a good weekend (a lot of the fracas seemed to pass me by).

It would have been nice to go a bit deeper - but was a pretty narrow favourite over Rob in that hand.

RT -$1186

Ran aground 68th of 402(50 paid) in the I-Poker $45k g"tee AT into AK - shipped an extra buyin on a move and then ran into Aces.

Middle phase - looked to get aggressive - a couple of flat calls behind and missed flops requiring a slow down.

Was getting short so AT push correct - would have settled for a race.

I need to have a look at my golf/cricket "books" too - as a bit of loss to add to the above!

Gulp : RT -$1346

Looking back on last night"s game - I was almost in a trance playing - I didn"t do anything particularly wrong but weird to be so on auto-pilot!

Looks like a day off the day today.

I had lunch with my father, just turned 77, still very quick of mind, a good omen.

I am not sure that he has ever played poker, but he enjoys a game of nomination whist, still time to get him on tour??

It would be good to have a legitimate hand that was your age - tricky though - at the moment I am playing 36 (suited)

Further it must be really gutting to reach 40, no legitimate hand for two whole years!

Aside - I visited my mother the other evening and her husband (re-married) had made five rough hewn xylophones from some Norweigan Maple from a local wood - I think this is the kind of news that should go on News at Ten.

We then discussed the difference between Xylophones and Marimbas:

http://percussioneducationonline.com/2008/05/what-is-the-difference-between-a-marimba-and-a-xylophone/

I like discussions with;

a/ no answers
b/ answers

... easily satisfied ... smile.

Further dialogues to follow.

I was thinking about Diogenes the other night - he was a philosopher who lived in a tub and ate onions - rejecting all refinements (such as clothing) - so the story goes Alexander the Great ships up to ask him what he could do for him - to which Diogenes replies "... you can stand out of my light and let me see the sun"

Class!

Who is your favourite philosopher and why?

Aboard the "Euston Flyer" - Carlisle to London in 3 hours 23 mins!

Earlier I watched a guy and his girlfriend drinking Buds and Smirnoff Ices, all opened by his teeth, but early for that type of thing in my opinion, very solid technique though.

Do you think anyone has ever managed to suck a cork out of a (non-sparking) wine bottle?

Curry in Brick Lane tonight.

I am quite liking the idea of calling a future cat "Henri B"

Today - a glorious Saturday at home - only thought is what food to eat - Ideal.

Managed to win a snooker match for the first time in years yesterday (3-2) - a real classic of terrible play.

Would have played golf - but for the lightning!

Keenly awaiting odds for the World Champs in Nottingham.
