RT +$512

Knocked out in 6th place with JJ vs KK - no escape from that one.

First time that I have been positive RT for a while!

Pretty solid in these Betfair $18k events, 12th,12th,6th in the last three from c145.

Knock outs

QQ vs KK
77 vs 66
JJ vs KK

Will be very tempting to play face to face tomorrow night ...

Got coolered with trip 8"s on the river vs the made (invisible) 57 (hole cards) straight ...

Fought back - only to ram AJ into AA ...

Fought back again ... and left with minor losses ...

Time to work ... and be merry ... big wedding weekend for me ... by Sunday I will be weakened ...

No not me ... my old and great friends Jim and Susie!

One of great occasions where I know both sides of the party really well.

Tomorrow night a dinner, and then a full day of fun on Saturday, wedding breakfast on Sunday and home.

Really looking forward to it.

Greyhounds and heads up ...

Watching "the strictest parents in the world" ... the world kids in England head to Atlanta for a reality check.

RT +$200 (with the following punt in play!)

£70 treble on

Partick Thistle to win Scottish Div 1 @11/2
Stirling to win Scottish Div 2 @ 7/4
Livingston to win Scottish Div 3 @ 13/8

Returns? £3,284.53

I think Livingston are a cracking bet - only full time side in the Div - have won 5 from 6.
Assuming Stirling don"t go bust (surely they can find £69k) -they are 5 points clear in a weak division.
Partick - second last year - open division - why are Dundee 11/10 or less?

Worth a few pounds - I believe.

Signs that your diet needs improvement:

I walk into my local greasy spoon -to be welcomed - "usual Sir"?

Aside - Bacon+Egg Roll + (nice) coffee + (okay) OJ = £3.60 - RESULT.

Starting to think about drinking Guinness - a good sign - (to be reviewed tomorrow morning!)

RT +$168

Football bet falls of the rails ... (though season long bet starts well with two wins and a draw).

Wedding - a great bout of dancing/singing and merriment.

Siesta has sorted me out I think.

Still waiting to watch the Sunderland beach ball goal ... have always waited for this sort of thing to happen.

Aside - it made me think about a betting market once quoted on the Turkey vs England match - on first object to be thrown onto the pitch - 200/1 a Turkey ... GENIUS!

Obviously this then made me think about the Turkey - Family Fortunes episode.

It"s a good memory - worth an infinite amount.

I think this is why a large tournament vixtory is required - roll on the Sunday Warm Up!
