Back in the world of reality. Holiday was great, really enjoyed myself and felt good to lounge by the pool beer in hand. Majorca and the Villa were very pretty, we stayed on the quiet side of the island where the nearby marina displayed an array of Sunseeker yachts that made me green with envy. We ate out on most nights, had a couple of barbies and had some marathon pool volleyball sessions where me and Suz were narrowly defeated by John and Suz's siter Sarah. In all 12 games. :(

One scary moment when some random fucker scared the shite out of Suzanne when Suz spotted him creeping round the villa from the kitchen window. Naturally she screamed and the cunt buggered off but it dampened the mood. The villa was miles from anywhere and was pure class, so no doubt the scumbag was planning on no good.

So feeling refereshed i came home and booked a weekend of magic. 2 nights, 7 hours work, 1 bag. If only it was always this easy. Crypto really has some of the most goddamn awful cash game players in the world. So many of them play deepstack cash like a tournament. Had a couple of beautiful hands. I called a raise from Centaur who is a massive multitabler at the $1/$2 level with 66. The flop came 662, he bet, i went all-in overbetting the pot by 9*, he called with AA. How else can you get quads paid?

Its that time of year again where all the really successful players bugger off to the big V for all the fun and action a gambling capital can muster. Weeks of playing craply structured competitions and sitting next to fat yanks. Just a touch of jealousy then. But realistically, i think its a good idea to recognise which events are going to give you real value for money and go with them. Pab, Andy Ward and a few others have the right idea i think. Go there for your own reasons for sure, but be selective. Good luck also to M3boy, sorry i couldnt come with you this year bud but thats life. I'll be out there by 2009 i told myself, and ill be bringing lots of $ with me.

Looks like Daniel Negreanu is going to lose his bet with the 2+2 poster regarding the bracelet this year. Cant wait to hear him whingeing about the structures. I cant see why you would play most of these tbh, surely if you are anywhere near competent then cash games should be where ur making hay.

Ill leave you with this one little gem, stolen from RED-DOG on blonde, but worthy of here....

Scientists at NASA have developed a gun built specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners, military jets and the space shuttle, all traveling at maximum velocity. The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.

British engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new high speed trains. Arrrangements were made. But when the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurtled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, crashed through the control console, snapped the engineer's backrest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cab.

Horrified Brittons sent NASA the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield, and begged the US scientists for suggestions.

NASA's response was just three words, "Thaw the chicken".
