Couple of cash sessions..

from Donkey Thrasher by BurnleyMik
So, Although I had a nightmare with cash lsat year, I have decided to have another crack at it. All be it a bit half-heartedly and when i am in the mood only. I have only managed 3 sessions so far, playiong in total about 2.7k hands. Not a lot, but remember it is full ring.
I have been messing around multi-tabling and the highest I have gotten so far, with it still being mostly comfortable is 17 tables. It’s miles easier than with SnG’s because you rarely get short-handed at any point. So the games are steady away and basically I am just nut peddling. Waiting around for good hands and then playing them hard. I am not doing to bad, with all three sessions being winners so far. My only gripe is that I have had aces cracked twice in two different sessions, both by smaller pairs flopping sets. Bastards! It’s different though. If i couldn;t multi-table there is no way on this planet I could sit there and grind one table! hahah. Not a chance. As it stands the multi-tabling is what keeps me going. I like the rush of making fast decisions, under pressure.
So, like I say, so far , so good. lets hope the run continues!
I played teh Bloggerment for the first time in ages Friday night and was really dissapointed to see only 5 players. it’s not easy setting games up, more people should play or these things will stoip, thats myself included! It was a fun game although I played quite well and aggro until the heads up play vs Cloud, where I went into Super-donk mode and just donated all my chips to him thinking he was bluffing!! (Yeah right, the cloud bluff… NEVER!!!)Sop well done cloud!
Sorry, i haven;t got much else to write about!
GL at the Felt.

Another week flies by..

from Donkey Thrasher by BurnleyMik
..and still I have absolutely zero urge or motivation to play poker. I really just don’t fancy sitting down and grinding out. I am either working, having fun with my son and mrs or messing around on the Xbox360, poker just isn;t figuring at all. I am starting to wonder if, apart from the MADs games, I’ll even play a single session in January…. time will tell on that one I guess.
It’s strange because in reality, I doubt there were all that many days in 2008 where I didn;t actually play a single game. My one thing that I do miss is the money I made. Whilst playing poker and enjoying it, I was also making money, ok not vast amounts, but i was doing fairly well. Lets just say it paid for my hols and for xmas, so not to be sniffed at.
I might try and sit read a few blogs and articles this week and see if i can actually find the desire to play again because I know the worst thing I could do is force myself to play when I am not in the mood. I will likely tilt easily and lose money, which is just stupid.
Like I said in my previous post, I tried a few staking deals, which unfortunately didn;t go great. Only one of my horses made me any money and it just didn’t happen for the other guys, not through lack of trying I might add, just one of those things meaning I ended with a small loss
So not sure where I am at or heading with poker right now. Hopefully by my next post I’ll have some direction.
What i do want to see is Obama and his crew decimate the UIGEA so the casual American fish can get back online. That really would get me firing again. Fingers crossed.

The RTR MADs Game

from Donkey Thrasher by BurnleyMik
Played game one on Sunday night and TBH I didn’t play well. I got away with a couple of moves, but TBH, with Amatay, Doomswitch, Johnnyfish, Ant and other good players at my starting table it was never going to be easy.
I started ok, building a little stack when getting tricky with my set against HullJimi. Trying to turn the float play against him, but he didn;t go for the bait, so ended up having to make an enticing river bet, which did the trick, but kept the pot smaller than I would have liked with a good hand.
I then found AK a couple of times when shorter stacks shoved into me and managed to win those showdowns. I lost a good pot to Doomswtich when this time my AK couldn;t win the showdown vs TT and finally got all my money in on a bad read.
I basically raised it pre from LP with 67s. The BB (can’t remember who it was) flat called. The board came down J7x rainbow and he check raised me all in. I really thought he was just making a move on me with a hand like AK/AQ, so I made the call and he had JQo.. meh. Maybe he readz soulz and knows I am raising light and that JQo is a good defending hand for the BB.. who knows
It was a decent game of poker though to be fair and some good player turned out. I am looking forward to the rebuy this Sunday, as I plan some revenge!
Apart from that game I have played absolutely fuckall. I have completely lost the motivation to play. It’s just gone. Instead I have been staking a few other players from the forums.
Tanorpheus looks like making me a small profit. Nemo made a very small loss and Snake is just running like a 1 legged donkey right now. I know all three are capable of playing good poker, so I am not worried and I definately wouldn’t have put the dough up if I thought they were shit!
Anyways, prolly no poker till Sunday.
On a side note, looks like the Newcastle Forum Team Challenge is now definately on! we have enough players and deposits are paid! Bring on February!

Apologies if anyone actually reads this, but I just simply haven;t had the time or inclination to play poker the last few weeks.
I had the odd cash session and a few tourneys and thats it.
Xmas and New Year for the first time with the baby was superb and life is generally very sweet right now.
Hopefully I will play a little more in the coming weeks and maybe have more to blog about.
Don;t forget the RTR-MADs series starts this weekend (sunday night). I’ll be playing, making the most of the overlay and hopefully beating some fish into subsmission… no names mentioned, Amatay, Kenn, HullJimi, Vgj_felix, KnightmareNick, Snakeeyes, Doomswitch..
Anyways, take care all and all the best for 2009.
