Dial-A-Dealer - Home & Corporate Poker

Thursday, December 28, 2006

Had a superb Xmas. Got some cracking prezzies, including an ipod so ill no longer have to listen when a table has a couple of total twats yakking non-stop. Had a lot of fun playing poker too and think im due a big tournament win soon. Mt game has improved non-stop since i read a pocket fives thread discussing how a top top online MTT specialist got to 12th in the Stars million and only had to showdown a winning hand all-in twice. So iv started playing a bit more people poker once 2/3 of the field has been eliminated. Before then ur just playing with monkeys anyway, so you have far less ability to outplay them post-flop when they are numpties.

Played the £75 NL FO at Luton on boxing day and what a cracker. Got off to a flyer after cruncing Lalit Khajuria with A4 v 34 on a 44J flop. :) Good job he didnt have bobbies.
After that early start on a table i was very compfortable on, i sadly got moved to an altogether trickier table where there was a hell of a lot of re-raising and bluffing. I decided to sit out of harms way for a while, then made a shocking move after 2 late position limpers with A9 soooted only to get called by AA preflop, oops. Down to the felt, grinded back only to call all-in with Q9o v itght SB's raise. Didnt like doing it and regret it now and KJ held for my opponent and i finished a respectable 23rd out of 110.

Online im grinding well and have decided to have a go at the $20/$40 NL like Bluescouse.......only joking. Its $2/$4 for me till i earn another $10k then im off to the dizzy hights of $3/$6.

Hi Rob mate, im pretty sure its the usual comps on the Thursday and Saturday, ie £20RB NL on Thurs eve and £10NL RB followed by £20 RB PL on Saturday.

I played the cash, lost £250 to a couple of flush chasing numpties, went to the cash machine to reload only to find out that id reached my daily limit. Went back with the £50 or so i had in my wallet and just fucked about for about 4 hours till 6am. Hitting quads with A7 v Max's KK sent him giddy i think.

Oh, and layed down AQ v Alan Geddis on a boarsd of 68Q rainbow after he check raised me. :) Was shown set of sixes and told what a great laydown it was.....didnt tell him if he had bet the hand instead of check-raised me he would have stacked me ;)

Have a happy new year mate, and ill see you next week for footy or poker.
