Hit, bust, Hit, bust...

Arghhh, annoying, i deposit $40, don't cash in a few SnG's, go down to about $18. I sit at a 25c/50c tab, get it upto $168, then spunk it off, mainly in a hand where i get AA, one raiser pre, he makes it $1.50, i make it $4.50, he flat calls, flop is queen high, he check calls my $4.50 C-bet, turn is nothng, i bet $7.50, he flat calls again, river is a 10, i lead out for $16.50 to make look like a stupid steal, he then pushes for another $38, it takes me ages to think, but i dno, think all sorts, but i just cant muck it, i call, to find the fish had 1010, lucky cunt!

I then tilted and blew the rest being aggresive lol, rebought for $40, got it to $127, spunked it, and again rebought now for another $40, got it currently at $82, but it will surely go. I realy shudda left when i got it too $168, but there was this fish on there that was paying out lol, maybe im too greedy, i dno, but i got unlucky, my poker play was perfect up unitl then, faultless, loved my play, ahh well, lets see if i can get this above $120, ill try force myself to cash out even for this evening...however this may proove difficult, gl

EDIT: I managed to pull myself together and get it upto $148, some good reads also helped, damm fish didnt know what hit em, muahah :P

$45,000 GTD

Played the $11 rebuy tourn, managed 56th out of 1314 peeps for a $127 prize, i shudda done so much better, but it wasn't to be, i was in the top ten chipstacks, when i get given a9d in middle position, i raise it up to 17.25k, blinds are at 3000/6000. I get 2 callers. Flop comes 7d3d5s, i make it 32k, i get re-raised behind me to 87.5k, the next guy pushes all-in for a total of 275k, covering my stack. I figure im good against trips or overpairs hoping to suckout and hit my diamond, but it wasn't to be, i called, so did the guy behind, one turns 88, the other has 33, the turn is a 6c, river 5c, ending it all for me. The lucky mofo wins a 475k pot, and gets chip lead by a long way. But oh well, a small proff.

Missing Draws, getting sucked out on...

What a bad start to this week, absolute rubbbish. I thought i'd deposit on sunday night, as i was bored, and as of late, have been making a small proff. But i decided to go down a few levels, what stupid mistake. I must of forgot how bad the play is there, such a joke.

I deposited a total of £40, i bought in for £10 at a time, and every time i get lucked out on by bad play, i mean, why do they get rewarded for being shit. So so annoying.

The one that annoyed me the most was this: I get given QJh, it folds to me on the button, i make it 3xbb, sb and bb both call, flop is 4h 7h Qs, both check, i make it 3xbb again, sb folds, the bb goes all-in here instantly, i'm like WTF, he has more than my stack, and it's such a weird move, only thing i can think is maybe he has just limped with 44/77. But i figured, why would he play it like that?? And plus i had the flush draw, so after thinking i call. He turns Qc8h, and hits an 8 on the river, with no heart coming to the rescue. Awesome :/

Another is a set on set, which i couldn't get away from, again. And just general suckouts and all sorts going on. I have made the decision to never play below 50c/1 from now on, because i think i'll have a heart attack before my next birthday from stress that these fishys cause me lol.

I'm going to most likely have a rest for this week now, it's annoyed me quite a bit just spunking off money to lucky mofos that don't deserve it. I'll be reading alot of forums, and poker related things probs, just to sharpen up my play abit maybe.

gl though..

Well friday night me n fishy (ed) lol decided to goto da pub for some pool and to get drunked realy lol. Was good laugh actually, we did a bit of side betting on the pool lol..didn't goto plan for me as the more drunk i got, the worse i got. The next thing i remember is waking up not knowing where the fuck i was or how i got there, this doesnt often happen to me, even if i'm wasteddddd. I soon realised i was at eds lol and his bro picked us up in the early hours.

Saturday night we went to chester, as it was moz's b'day in the week, so we went down to get trashed. Me n Blue couldnt get a lift up, so we had to train it..grrrr
But we amused ourself's on the train, coz ed come up with a drinking game/wordsearch that he bought lol. Whoever gets the least amount of words in 2 mins, gets an extra shot of vodka in there drink. Luckily i won =)
When we goto moz's, we vandalised his house for a bit before heading out to da pubsssss. Started to get bit tipsy, we then headed for the club, waited for like 45 mins to fkin get in << in which time i pretty much lost all tipsyness lool. We soon got it back when we nailed a few gas chambers down our necks. Looked like it was gonna be a good night until the music turned out to be wank. I was dancing to anything, but blue n moz insisted it was shit, so we left lol. Went back to the moz-meisters crib n crashed.

Also moz, i have a confession, when u went out you bedroom, i picked up your dumbell, threw onto the bed (thinking ed would be able to catch it after bouncing) and it the hit the floor with some pace, and erm, if your wondering why its in the corner appearing not to be broke, dont be fooled, coz it is loool. Im just suprised you didnt hear the bad lol, but i'll pay for a new one haha.

Anyhoe, nothing on poker side, not played, may play this week, depends, but i'll post if owt good happens fishys. GLGL

So i bust the $300 or so roll i managed to build from $40 because i kept re buying whilst on tilt, but, i think i have found the prob as to why i bust every time, i thinks it because when i sit at a table, i try get into into the game to fast, whereas i should sit back and evaluate the players and the play in general. When i bust one buy-in, i'm not thinking, why did i bust? what did i do wrong? I just insta re buy to try and recoup the losses. This is my problem, when i start to play bad/bust a buy in, i keep doing so, where i should sit back, maybe take a break. I'm gonna try an enforce these rules the best i can from now on. I deposited $50 yesterday, and its now at $127, i played 50c/$1. This may seem high for that deposit, but I'm careful on the table, and i also feel that i can play alot better than these players, i will only drop to 25c/50c maybe if i take a bad beat, but fuck 10c/25c lol, I'm fed up of that fishy play. You just can't push them off any shitty thing.

I'm also gonna try and make the blog more interesting, as lets face it, its pretty shitty atm, any advice is welcomed =)


EDIT: Dropped down to $113, so i withdrew $63, and left $50, i managed to spin that $50 upto $140 by some good play on 50c/$1. I withdrew $100 (as i need it lool) and left $40 in there. I'll see what i can do with this now over the next few days or so. gl

^^^ I got that $40 upto $67 before busting it after my set on the flop was lower than his. How Sick is set on set lool..not to worry though, still in proff!

Swings and roundabouts..

Well my roll yesterday evening was $20, and that was put all on a 9 seater SnG in which i hoped to cash in, i was rolling well in it, then i had to leave Bluescouse's house, to travel back to camp, i asked him if he wanted to carry on for me, he managed 2nd for a sweet $54 (cheers mate).

I got back to camp, last night and had a sesh with the $54 all going on the line, and had another sesh tonight, both times on 50c/$1, the roll now stands at $305. Both lasting about 2.5 hrs each, very good play by me i believe, best i've probobly played on such a table, i think im used to the play there now, and will play more often. Making good reads atm, pretty chuffed, going to carry on trying to grind up the roll, with no more crazy play, like i did on sunday morning to almost bust the roll.

Speak soon fishkens

Took a risk, paid off...

As you can see, the roll has taken a very nice upswing. I decided last night that it was increasing at too slow a pace, so i sat at a 50c/$1 table, with $60. Last nights attempt didnt go well, ending $10 down. Tonights however went awesome, i make a sweet $100, and my roll was upto over $300 at one point, however took a slight knock when i missed my flush draw. No worries though as im still well up. Good times, Will find the hands and post soon hopefully.

May my run continue =)

Can i stop winning?...

Let's hope not..

I placed a bet on Calzaghe this weekend, £50 on betfair, obviously he won, i got a small proff of £38 or summit, which i was pleased about. Made the night a whole lot better, wudda been on a downer if i lost lol. Been on the tables also briefly, sat at the usual 10c/25c table with $15, and soon got upto $40+ again, before cashing out. The roll is flying along, and im feeling awesome about my game. Lets hope this long awaited sucess continues =)

Happy to say though Bluescouse (ed) managed to not get arreseted this weekend (applause) lol...good going to him, although i did drop him flat on his face whilst pissed, and trying to give him a running piggy back, that was hilarious, as i saw him overtaking me in mid air, haha, his face was a picture. Tbh though, i think i come off worse, as i managed to headbutt a f00kin car bumper on the way down, haha, good times.

Not much else to report, gl all..

Rolling well..

Had a few sessions this week, playing awesome, my bankroll is starting to look up. I seem to be doubling/tripling up my buy in everytime i play. Loving my game at the moment, can't seem to lose, loving it. I have been playing 10c/25c cash tabs and usually buy in for $15, and not often leave with less than $40 odd.

My new objective, is to nail the $200 mark buy end of play next friday. If i manage that, i'll be over the moon, as it will confirm me playing good again, i'll try post a few hands up during the week to evaluate my play further, *all comments welcome*.

On the work front, all is well, been quite busy but i enjoy that as the week flys buy then. I went out on the lash last night, as one of the guys is leaving the army, so me and a few lads said we'd come along for a few pints also. As always, a few turned into quite a few, and it ended up us being absolutely minging, in a night club, on a thursday night, with not a care in the world that theres work the next day loool. We were meant to be up at work for 8am, even though we did not arrive back at camp (sumhow) until 4am. Safely to say we awoke at 9am. Luckily, most of the bosses were also wasted and turned in late aswell, what a night though, some of the things we did, i not dare say, however, all good fun!

GL =)
