RT -$471

Got into a good position in $1m g"tee qualifier - but with increasing blinds lost a battle of the blinds - live cards but went in behind.

Marin Cilic to beat Del Potro is huge at 4/1 tonight.

No reason why he couldn"t then beat Nadal/Gonzalez - overall price 47/1 - back to lay I believe.

Cilic going well ... ffirst set 6-4

Del Potro 1.79
Cilic 2.24

Pretty tempting to lump Cilic ... but will settle for the money placed at 4.9

Could be a classic match.

... weird second set ... Del Porto marches back ... happily I chopped the down side so have a tasty freeroll on Cilic ...

I guess Del Potro might over power him ... GRRR!

A little bit on Cilic left on for the title ... oh well.

Beautiful weather in sunny Scotland.

Listening to Sky debate the virtues of Darren Fletcher - might be a short debate ...

I think he would make a fine farmer.

Cricket - good to see Collingwood and Anderson rested.

Random thought afternoon ... watching trashy TV.

When is it ever a good idea to get on a horse wearing a wedding dress?

I do love an Indian summer - a chance to walk in the sun as opposed to watching the rain!

Thinking about the virtues of sausage sandwiches vs the idiocy of Derren Brown.

... looking forward to the APAT tonight.

RT - $546

APAT 34th of 89 ... and a weak finish

KQ vs AJ (short stack)
K9 vs A8

Played good for two hours - raised everything - and took advantage.

Lost a 77 into xxx called by AK which spiked (small stack)
Lost a AK vs AT
Lost a KQ (two pairs) vs 4 to a flush - which I played slowly (could have folded the river) - my own fault.

This made my stack small and not enough patience from me to survive.

The epic balance between patience and aggression - and how to deal with having very few cards.

Overall - a decent position dented by beats - but killed by impatience - WEAK!

... I should add to last night ... enjoyed the battle with MattBlue and AMRN.

Matt on the table all night.

Steve arriving late to re-raise my raises - I should have re-stole - I think - next time!

First 100 hands - I played 55 and won 36 - which is pleasing.

Got to 4th place - then needed to slow down a bit but I seemed to have cooked the brakes.

Mmmm ... feeble attempt to qualify for the I-poker $1m ... broke one of my rules in playing a turbo qualifier (re-buy)

Re-focus : walk in sun - strawberry and white chocolate ice lolly.

Fired up a $70+7 qualifier ... so RT -$746 ... plus or mnius a ticket ... 10 min levels ... shuffle up and deal.

41st of 71 for 18 seats - 6 refunds and 1 consolation.

Lost momentum with AT vs JT defeat.

Nearly falling asleep ... not helped by Cardiff 0 Newcastle 1 ... zero skill.

I watched Crystal Palace vs Charlton last year (live) - dire.

Fulham vs Everton next up ... is this going to be any better?

Made the (minor) money of Event 26 of the WCOOP

Very slow structure - never in a great position - had a life with 5 outs twice early on.

Needed to find a good spot to gamble at the end.

How"s this ATs vs AA ... great!

If you could this as a Sunday Warm up substitute then 5 cashes from 10 ... this one slightly feeble (though governed by cards) ... others more live.

Might take a look at tomorrow"s card!

Played the APAT qualifier - missing the first 30 mins (at dinner) - no joy in these at the moment - ramming into QQ twice.

Having folded AK and AQ to KK twice!

Happy Birthday to me ... (37) ... how does it happen ... it"s almost as if the number gets one bigger each year!

Never know what to do to celebrate birthdays - so much partying throughout the year already.

Most of my favourite activities can be done every day.

e.g. eating sausage rolls/sitting in my chair.

Off to Italy tonight - Venice - Florence - Pisa.

Venice - always like walking into a Canaletto painting.

Florence - I am most looking forward to the Boboli Gardens to view the statue of Bacchus riding the giant Turtle.

Pisa - I ate a great Pizza there last time - backstreet cafe/restaurant - only other customers being an Italian couple busy getting off with each other - under the table their boxer dog kept guard.

Leaning tower fans - Bologna has a tower with a much bigger lean - just not so ornate.

I love Italy and its ways.

Enjoy your holiday.


Cheers mate - good luck in the London Freezeout you are playing.

Aside - here is another holiday I am pondering:

"Truffle Weekend in the Papal Enclave"
