What a good week so far. Finally got the hand of VC cash and have been steadily grinding away for small profits.
On Wednesday night i went to Luton for their £50 Rebuy and had a lot of fun. 70 odd runners and a cracking structure.I was cruising for a long time till i lost KK to A4 on the bubble. Very next hand i run QQ into the KK of Lalit Khajuria, but the gods smile and we split it. I finally end up on the FT with average chips. Sadly the blinds had got very crapshooty and i was being forced to push with any 2 cards pretty quickly. I lost a bit pot with (ahem) K2 v AK (marvellous) then lost another when some mug spiked a str8 on the river to knock me out in 8th.
Luckily i had swapped 5% with Lalit, 15% with Paul Garner and 10% with Justin (unusual for me). They all made the Final table. ROFL. After Justin came 5th, Lalit 4th and Paul 2nd i had a nice little earner. Shiiiiipiiiiiiiiit.

Tonight was a cracker. Won my 1st comp at the new Luton. Well, chopped it HU anyway. £2k will do nicely. I played super aggy at times but also had a lot of luck too. I won a massive pot with AK v JJ. The best bit was getting a guy (who i think saw me as a soft touch) to re-raise me all-in with 97o preflop. The 1 time i had a hand. Yummy. Was sorely tempted to bite the bullet there and then and buy in to Cardiff but i decided ill wait for 1 more cash then do it.
Possibly holding 60% of the chips in play i should have gone for the outright win but im not fussy. I think (despite Kev having tonnes of experience) that i was the better player. I decided to not be greedy.

So the wheels are back in motion both on and offline and im loving this poker lark again. I give it 2 weeks before im posting a whine......................

Cheers Paul, thanks snoops, hopefully ill see you in Cardiff.

Im not sure tbh pokeking, i think he thought i was aiming to ladder the payout scale and reasoned i was good enough to fold.
