Spin up then bust..

$50 was spun up to around $130ish, before busting when my pocket jj's didn't hold up vs AQ...I obviously didn't apply the BRM i intended too. I'm now going to take a break from internet poker for a few weeks maybe. Going to be reading a few books to keep up the right frame of mind about the game, and then i'll get back into it fresh, and hopefully back playing good. I'll still post about the soon to come drunk nights im sure


I busted that small roll in Pokerstars i had, got it up to around $27 on low stakes tables, but then i just got bored and started to call lesser hands. I then deposited $50 into Full tilt after i said i wouldn't, i lost that fairly quickly. I think all these losses recently are actually down to me being a impateint cunt lol. I need to be doing something all the time. Saying that, in tournaments, im not so bad, i can wait for the hands and play them well, but when i play cash, i just seem to want to double up realy fast, and win realy fast, and i think this might be the main reason i'm losing at the moment. I need to find something to pre-occupy me whilst i play, so that i'm not a calling station lol. I'm going to deposit $50 into one site tonight, and i'm going to grind it, playing the correct stakes, and alot of tourneys i think. Let's see how long this lasts.

Tournament Results

Played a $4.40 180 man SnG just now, i was chip lead for a large majority towards the end of the tourney, by a long long way, over double anyone else, then this fish joined my table, and would call anything, with any hand, wtf he was still doing in the tourney this late on i was thinking, he called down my bets when i was flush drawing, with Ace high, no draws, no nothing, the fkin cock. Somehow he just lucked out every time, did my head in. Anyway, because of that retard i managed a lame 13Th position for a measly $8.64. I was also simultaneously playing a triple shootout to the sunday million, and i messed up on that to come 19th out of 216 and not to get anything lol. What a waste of a couple hours.

£25 down, starting small roll

Lost £25 on Littlewoods last night, when some guy called an all-in on the turn with a flush draw and managed to hit, vs my AA, wat a cock lol, was like a £75 pot i think. Cant realy remember, i just slammed shut the laptop and went to sleep. I've just deposited a small $10 in pokerstars(gay) which im gonna just use to practise and hopefully come off tilt for a while. Gonna play some low limit and some small SnG's most probs. Don't know how long it will be before im back playing $1/2 and $2.50/5. Not long though i hope, most probs will be when i feel like im fully off tilt and playing well again. I'm also gonna read Dan Harringtons second book which i've just bought, i enjoyed his first one, and i recommend it to anyone wanting to learn about poker.

Also it's my b'day on Friday which should be cool, gonna go to the casino and gabooool some and on saturday, hopefully going to Cardiff on the lash with fishscouse and the gang =) I'll post if anything mad happens. 99.9% chance of this

Down more

Lost £100 playing $2.50/$5 yesterday, it was mainly tilted play that lost it for me, i was making such loose calls and found normal folds very hard to do. Ive lost a large majority of all the profit that ive made this month, which once stood at about $800. I realy need to find a way to stop tilting so easily after a few bad beats. Any ideas as to how you guys get over them?

Not so well

Managed to lose £150 of the £200 that i withdrew, i also bust that £50 that i left in my account to play with, wasnt so much bad play, just things like when im all-in on a flop 3 6 K with 33, and get called with 77 only for him to hit a 7 on the turn, what can i do..."sighs"

Saturday, 26 January 2008


I lost $120 rebuying on a $1/2 table, the last buy-in of $40 i spun upto $320 at one point, but then i bust it when sum guy lucked a full house on the turn against my flopped trips. I went a bit mad, so decided to gamble lol, i put $100 on a $2.50/$5 table, and left with $482. Not a bad proff for the night, i played better at the higher stakes table, and loved every second of it I withdrew the majority of the money from my betfair account, and left just £50 in there to gamble when i next want to play, until then..GL :D

A small loss

Lost $100 tonight, $50 of which i had left in Full tilt, and another $50 which i deposited afterwards. The first was through not hitting anything whenever i'd raise, the 2nd amount, i managed to get it upto about $90 before i get given AK, i make it $8 in the cut off, BB re-raises to $21, i call, flop is Q6K, he bets $28, i make it like nearly all-in for me, he re-raises, and i obviously aint folding now that the majority of my money is in, he turns over 66 and nothing to help me on turn or river. Oh well, bad play by me, will play tommorow maybe.

EDIT: Lost $150 more, the first buy-in was when some cunt who had trips, beat my turned flush, by making a house, then 2nd was when i make flush on turn again, he makes trips on turn also, river makes him quads, fuckin joke, 3rd was tilted play!

$400 win

I gotta play hungover more often lool...i deposited $50 into full tilt poker, and sat at a $1/2 table, and left with $400, i managed to hit quite a few nice hands, which i played v well, i only mis-played one hand, where i flopped a set, and probs got bit too exited and bet all wrong, but all learning ey. I managed win a moster pot, where i flopped a set of 6's and one guy had aces, flop was like 736, both all in on the flop, i turned quads for his chances to be squashed lol, awesome.

So made back this mornings losses, and a hefty bit more...:D loving it...GL

Lost £50

not so good this morning, lost 2 buy-ins of £25 on a $1/2 table, got unlucky against the same guy twice, One hand was where i got given AA, one guy raises the button, i just call, BB moves all-in, button calls, i'm all-in then behind, with a shorter stack, BB shows JJ, button has KQo, KQ hits two pair on the river to take the whole pot, what a tit lol...and then the other main pot was where i had KQ, Q high flop, im all-in on the flop again and he was flush drawing, and obv hits on turn, not such a bad one, but still annoying lol. Oh well, not to be this morning i guess :)

Pissed up bad, Hungover good!

I come back last night from the pub, and decided i wanted to play poker lol...I firstly deposited £30 and lost it with my second hand i think lol, i did same again, and lost that within 5 mins, and then i did 2 more deposits of £25 and lost the first one, and fell asleep at the table with the second one loool.

However when i woke up this morning, i thought i'd try and play that £25 that i had left, i sat at a $1/2 table with the buy in of $50. I was steady around this mark for a while, before winning a few small pots getting me upto around the $90 ish mark. I then got lucked out on a few times, back to $50. Then i make a big call with this fish one the table, i called with a pair of 6's on a queen high board, his betting was all wrong, and he was easy to read. He often liked to re-raise pre-flop with any two. It's safe to say that he paid me off. Up to around $100. I made a same sorta call with a pair of 7's when there was a J, K and an ace on the board, for a $114 pot. $214 ish. Again i won a few good pots against this guy before i won the big pot.
I get given Jd Jh in the button, it folds around to me, i make it $8, SB folds, BB makes it $24 (as he usually does after i raise the button) I over-raised it, because i thought theres more of a chance of this guy calling here, as it would look like a stupid bet, i make it $72, he flat calls. Flop comes [9c Th Qh] he checks, i bet $110, he re-raises to $151 and is now all-in, i call the $41, he turns over 5c 10c, turn and river are nothing cards, and i take down the $444 pot. Bringing my stack to $516. So within an hour, i turned $50 into over $500, which i figured was quite good, i played about 20 more hands before cashing out as it's safe to say, i need the money lool. I would of loved to of stayed because he kept re buying, but i didn't want to really risk it. So i won back last nights losses and also this weeks losses with some to spare. THANK GOD!

- £100

Bad session last night, i lost first few buy-in's fairly fast with some unlucky hands, on being where i flop 2 pair, and some guy has flush draw, and of course he hit's after the money is all-in on the flop, and everytime my money went in on the flop for a straight or flush draw, i of course missed everytime. I then managed to turn my third buy-in of £25 into £165 before losing a large majority whilst betting on draws that never came etc. Then came a £190 pot that i lost when i get given 66 in the button, i raise it upto £4, sb folds, bb makes it £9, i flat call. Flop comes down 6c 9h 2c. I make it £9, bb raises to £22, i re-raise to £45, he pushes all-in and i instant call, he holds KcQc, the turn is a club and the river doesnt pair the board, gayyyyyy lol.

My final buy-in was spun up to £85 ish before me busting it making some tilted calls, and some bad bets. Not the best of nights, and i shudda easily got out at £165, and i knew i was in for £75 at that point already and can't be doing with losing that money. Oh well, not sure when next session will be. Will find out in the week =)

Little Profit!

Had 2 small sessions, first one i managed to turn $40 into about $93 ish, the second session i lost my $40 buy-in after i was all-in on a [2s Qc 5s] flop with A10s, and missed my draw, some guy had

nah tis ok..gna give it a rest for rest of tonight...May play tommorow, most likely going on the piss though..:D glgl

Chill pill, then continue!

I decided to take a break after such bad beats earlier on, watched phone booth on tv lol, bit of a nap, i then woke up around 01.30. I sat at the normal $0.50/$1 table with a buy-in of $40. I played the best i've played for a long time now, my reads on the fish were perfect almost everytime. I was also actually hitting my flushes, oesd's etc etc lol..which always helps!
I left the table with a stack of $233 for $193 profit. That's just about covered my losses for earlier on lol, thank f00k, because i think i almost broke my knuckle earlier from smacking shit outta the wall when that king came on the river lol. Time for some more me thinks! GL

On the up

Managed to make a total profit of $186 through the early hours today, have been playing on $0.50/$1, buying in for $40 each time. More than a days wages, and i'm going to see if i can manage to keep that up for a month or so, making more than a days wages each day for a month would be awesome, and would boost my confidence towards being a full time player in a few years (all going well). I played reasonably tight, and it was the sort of level where there were plenty of fish who couldnt make good laydowns and were often paying me off well. I'm now gonna try and get a hours sleep before work lol.

Down then up!

Firstly, last night, i lost a £25 buy in last night plus the proff i made the night before, which sucks, i played ok i thought, but not to be. Tonight i put £25 in, i lost £17 in some sng's, i then put the remainder on a £0.15/£0.25 table, got it up to £28 before busting, i then thought i'd gamble further (possibly wasn't the best of ideas). I put £40 on a £1/£2 table, i left that table with £150, i didn't get above this at any point. I won the £150 pot, went down to about £115 ish, then got it back up to the £150 mark, before deciding to leave, which i haven't done for a while lol...the £150 pot went like this:

+ a Little

Last night i played at a £0.25/£0.50 table on Littlewoods with a starting stack of £20, i dropped down to like £11 after my AQ was beat with AK when an ace showed up on the turn, not a great loss, but certainly not good, i then added £5 to my stack. I managed to shift the stack upwards some to around the £27 ish mark before calling someones all-in with 1010 against there 77, that pushed me up towards the £45 ish point, i then sat around this mark for a little while, had a few small pots in my favour before deciding to leave after an hour or so at the table with a stack of £54 for 2 reasons: 1 - I need a boost of confidence, and so leaving a table up might be able to help. 2 - It was 3:15am and i had work at 7:30, partly the reason I'm so tired today i guess, anyway, i withdrew the £25, and have left £29 in the account for me to gamble tonight, and hopefully get a roll going again. I'm thinking about starting to keep more of a record of wins/losses for the month etc, thus helping me to keep my bank balance in a healthier state, because right now, it's looking a little diminished to say the least.

Slippery Slope!

After last post i re-deposited another £50, £25 went on playing 3 card poker in Littlewoods casino, the other £25 on 2 x 15p/25p tables, i also spent my £50 bonus from Littlewoods in the casino area. The poker table sent me insane, i actually felt physically sick. The hand was this: I get given AKc in late position, one guy had made it 75p pre, i re-raise to £2.25, he flat calls, flop is 7QK rainbow, i bet out another £2.25, he calls, turn is a 3, i check, hoping for him to bet, he does bet £2.50, i make it £6.66, he calls, river is a Q, i know he has it, he bets out and i had to call, was like £4 or summit more, he hold can u get round this SHIT!

I've finally come to terms that i'm addicted, im so so shit with money, i just re buy and re buy when I'm tilted and playing bad, upping the stakes all the time, I've got just over £100 left to last me a month, £40 will go on petrol tomorrow to get me back up north for work, the rest is needed for food..I'm thinking of getting a loan this week, not for gambling, but for general life needs! Although deep down im sure a large majority will go on a table somewhere. DAMN the person who taught me poker!

Rolls plus more gone!

Lost the £64 roll plus £50 more tonight, awful play by me, i obviously struggle to keep my head once i get a bad beat, don't wanna explain right now, just wanna crawl under a mat and die!

Littlewoods bad, Betfair ok!

I managed to blow the whole Littlewoods roll within 2 hours, i was getting drawn out on alot, and i mean alot lol, and it somewhat tilted me (as it usually does) therefore i managed to chuck the lot, re-buy after re-buy, it's no disaster though, it was only rakeback i was playing with. Betfair on the other hand was somewhat better, started with £39 tonight, 4 tabled on 2x 5c/10c and 2x 10c/20c. Managed a profit on £20 bringing the betfair roll upto £59. Gonna pack it in for tonight though, Bluescouse needs my help i guess, dripping money on my left here, muahahahha...$100/$200...pffff....nothing! lol

2nd roll on the go!

Recieved £19 rakeback from Littlewoods today, used this all on one tab to get a small roll going, Spun it up too £52 on a 25p/50p table. From now on though, i'll play slightly lower stakes to not risk losing it all. It's good i got two rolls going now, it's also boosted my confidence back up after such bad play recently. Im hoping to have it both rolls over £100 by the end on the weekend with a bit of work.

Roll Started..

Ok, i decided to start a roll, and try and enforce some rules to stick by etc. I have only deposited £25/$50, and i've been multi-tabbing for a few hours tonight on 5c/10c tables, way way too low for me liking, but it has to be done, hopefully i'll be able to build this roll into summit special this time, and not blow it away lol. It has been up and down tonight so far, but i've finished the night with a roll of £39.55/$78.43. Not too bad for the first night at it, was sitting at 4 tables with $5 starting stack each time. It's not too bad, because your almost guaranteed a call everytime at this level lol, only bad point im worried about is that it may lower my level of play? Unsure, but time will tell im sure. GL

Wednesday, 2 January 2008


another gone into betfair, playing $1/$2 and $2.50/$5, playing tilted, not doing well, i hope this changes soon..grr

A little back..

won about $54 last night, whilst pissed out my face after the night out lol, i was in for $100, lost the first buy-in fairly quickly, wen i got given 45s, flop q79 all spades, he bets out, i push, he insta calls with 66, holding one of the spades, river is a spade, cock lol..i then managed a biggish pot with me all-in pre with 88, two other were in the pot with AK, i flopped an 8...thank god i won this pot...wudda gone mad otherwise hah...Not alot else to report, good night out last night, got into a scrap, my hand is fucked, yay..:S
