Going ok

I managed to get my roll upto $65, before blowing a majority of it in a night of rebuy after rebuy when a real bad beat sent me on tilt somewhat, i left that night with what i started with, $10. The next night i thought i'd give a $4.40 tourney a go, and from the start i played awesome, i waited for the hands, played them all correct, and made some huge folds. The best fold i did was when i get given Q8o on the button, its quite deep into the tourney right now, blinds are like 1k/2k i think, about 23 peeps left with me being the chip leader at around 36k. I raise it up after it folds to me, i make it 5.5k, sb folds, BB just calls, flop is 910a, BB checks, i bet the same 5.5k, BB calls again, turn is a J, the BB then check raises me all-in, its another 17k for me to call, over half my chips right now, and ive got the 2nd nuts. I thought and thought for agesss, before just made sense that he had KQ. I was just wondering whether it was a good fold or not, and then he showed KQ, i was over the moon. Made my game play so much better, i also folded A7 on a A7K flop, the guy had KK, i put him on AK tbh, but what does it matter =).

I was playing some brilliant poker. Comes down to the final table, then my internet decides to fuck me off for a good 20 mins, and with blinds that big, my stack soon depleted. I eventually managed to get back on, and was sitting with around 39k, and no longer chip lead. I then made a bad move when i thought the guy was bluffing, which cost me 19k. By now everybody is just stealing blinds, and they pretty much couldn't handle my aggression, and i was stealing left right and center. Then came my final move, i get given A9h in the SB, one raises to like 4750 before me, i insta push all-in, BB folds, the guy thinks for ages and ages, and calls with J10h, and lucks a fuckin 10, and that was me out, 7th place for a lame $25. Maybe a bad move, but i figured he was stealing tbh, and most were trying it on.

I then decided to gamble and put $25 on a 25c/50c table, i went up and down for a good few hours, upto $80, then down to $15 etc. I cashed out on $85 which now is my current roll. I have to say though i did get very lucky twice. The first time was aipf JJ vs AA and i hit the jack. The other time was on a nothing flop, i check raised a guy on the flop, where i thought he was bluffing, he wasn't lol, he flopped JJJ, i had A10o, and because i raised so much, when he pushed all-in, it was only another $1.70 to call, so i obv did. Turn is a K, river a Q. LOOOL!!..oops..bad by me, but about time i hit runner runner. I'll most likely be playing again tonight on 25c/50c, because it isn't quite as fishy as 5c/10c and ur raises actually do count for something lol.

Crazy Nights, Roll Started!

Well since my last post, i haven't done anything of great interest, just get drunk down the pub with Ed and the lads. The worst night was only meant to be a night of us gambling on pool games and just haveing a few drinks, but i ended up alot more than tipsy. Me and Ed have a betting system on our pool, like £16 per frame (have played upto £64 a fram before now) and bonuses all the way through, so plants, doubles, 4 balls in a row etc all add up, and depending how much each frame is, the bonuses are more or less.
So we were betting away as per, and thats about as much as i could remember. I got told alot of what i did, it involved getting back to eds house, me running out the car into his back garden, where he has a massive bank, i apparently stacked it down there and was crawling around on the floor like an idiot before Ed and TJ (Eds bro) came and helped me back up. We made it too the house, but it wasn't long before i was back outside running around the whole area, with no shoes on, landing on peoples gardens and all sorts. Tj drove after me (as he wasn't drinking) and couldnt find me. I somehow ended back at the house, where ed locked me in, i was running around the house looking for the keys (god knows why) before passing out on the sofa. It' safe to say, the night after way similar lol. But it's all good fun =)

On the poker side, i deposited $10 into my pokerstars account last night, and sat at two 5c/10c with $5 on each. I finished the night with a total roll of $55. I played a quick session today where i was down $10 at one point, but i finished $10 up, brining the roll to $65. I had a nice hand today where i was worried on the flop, but the turn comforted me. I get given 55 on the button, i raise it to 30c, BB calls, flop it 756, BB checks, i bet 45c, and get re-raised, i re-re raise and he insta pushes. Now there was 2 spades on the flop so im thinking he may have the flush draw, but also if he's actually flopped the nut straight. I thought and thought, and decided more likely the flush draw and called hoping he wouldn't hit, he turned over 67 thank f00k, and the turn was a 5 too finish him off lol. I will most likely do some more grinding tonight if i'm not too tired. GL
