Boring week. Worked long hours, won some huge pots and ultimately won nothing. Just didnt book enough wins and wait till the next day. Particularly annoying is when i run good and win like 2-3k in 30 mins, i feel compelled to stay for marathon sessions when eventually some monkey (normally tevje) does something which tilts me and i spew a load of money back. sigh. Moving into my house tomorrow, 90% of the stuff has been moved, the amazing oak flooring is down and i cant wait to get in to be honest, its gonna be phenomenal.

Went today to put the deposit down on my border terrier, she is an absolute beauty! only 3 weeks old and about 6 inches long, suzanne took 1 look at her and it was good game £500. To be honest i was equally smitten, we are calling her Pippa and getting here in 4 weeks time, ill write a long post then, suffice to say we saw her mum, dad and grandfather who are all stunning. The breeder has bred them slightly smaller (the line was formed orignally many years ago for hunting badgers in Scotland) and the grandfather in particular was incredibly handsome with a long bushy beard. They have amazing energy although they do have a slightly disturbing tendency to fight viciously with each other (like proper go at it and kill each other) so we will have to be very mindful obviously. The responsibility is kinda unnerving, god knows what its like to have a kid. I cant wait to take her out to be honest, do a bit of ratting with her and maybe a bit of long-netting if the rabbit population on our local shoot stays too bouyant.

Back on to poker, so a shit week in all, probably not playing too good over too many tables and also not abusing tag's pain thresholds enough, like if im gonna cr bluff the turn on a scary board and think that most of the time he cant call a river shove, dont bottle the fucking river. Also, a lot of work/life stuff has impacted on my focus, which needs to be good because without fail the games are getting tougher.

Anyway, here is one of the best hands i played all week, purely because it was a slightly complex puzzle, given i knew i was probably beating the shorty but that twojacks likely had tp with a better kicker or an overpair. Its not that interesting tbh, but at the time i was like wow i wonder if that did just happen and i got a hybrid bet to work perfectly in a multiway pot..... I decided against flatting the shorty on the turn because that would probably end up getting damascus commited by the river, so elected to bluff one guy with a superstrong line and valuebet/protect against another. Fun hand anyways. In reality twojacks probably had air anyways, but i tricked myself into being convinced id made him fold QQ, purely for ego.

Kids are much easier, they stop shitting on the floor after a couple of years and its easier to get people to watch them.

Poker in casinos: It was the opening up of the market in June 2010, the only place where you could officially play money poker France. Casinos offer you to play many variants of poker, and here you can watch the dealer in the eye. This is played mostly great players, fans or just because it is the essence of poker is represented. Face to face with other players can apply methods of psychology, read the reactions on the faces, My poker portal ..

Poker rooms online: For many years, moult companies have developed software for playing internet poker. Since the end of June 2010, playing online poker is legal and regulated in France, but it was possible to do before, at a time when the activity was tolerated because of a legal vacuum surrounding this activity. You can browse different sites in France in our legal section of online poker rooms, where you will find our selection of good sites to play online.

Poker with friends: This is a very fashionable distraction like poker in general, and you just bring a suitcase containing poker chips and a mat to begin to share nice moments with your friends, enjoy the game, or even indulge in small "competitions" with your friends. As in casinos, poker for real has the advantage of seeing your opponents. It is also the only place in which your party can escalate and turn into strip poker, hoping for that you have taken the time to choose your guests!

Poker tournaments: Many tournaments are held regularly around the world and in France, sometimes with the opportunity to qualify on the internet. The best known of them are the WSOP Online-poker-real-play, WPT (World Poker Tour), EPT (European Poker Tour) and FPT (France Poker Tour).
We return to these poker tournaments in more detail shortly in a special section showing you each tournament. In the meantime, do not hesitate to visit the Poker on Wikipedia that can provide additional information.
