      Hi Everyone!

      About me

      I'm not the sort of guy that likes to disappoint so here you go Ingrid!

      It's been a crappy week from a personal point of view and far from great on the felt too (although I'm showing a profit my play has been awful). If I wasn't such a SP & bonus whore I wouldn't have played a hand all week :s_o: .

      So what's been happening? I hear (or would like to imagine so) you ask.

      * Last Friday I found out that my father, who's in hospital at the moment with severe acute pancreatitis, had to have an operation on Monday and that he only had slightly better odds than AKs has vs QQ.

      * On Saturday I made a deposit at 888poker without really checking the site out (bonus whoring again!!) only to find that above 2c/4c LHE there are no full ring games going :f_frown: [So I'm starting my 6-Max education early].

      * Monday I spent a stressed out day at the hospital but everything came out good in the end and my dad's AKs held up (shall we say :P ). He's still not well but at least the op is out of the way.

      * Tuesday I DIDN'T GET A CARD!!! :f_cry: :s_cry: {Sucks to be single!}

      * I turned (work it out for yourself) years old :( on Wednesday. I DID GET CARDS THOUGH!!

      * Funeral of my great uncle?( (grand father's brother) on Thursday.

      Not the greatest of weeks by any measure though it could have been much worse (QQ could have won).

      I still managed to put in ~1000 hands and make a small profit, though I was playing as a distraction and not playing my A game.

      That's enough from me for now (@Ingrid hope this fits the bill :P )

      Till next time I hope you all run like Mercury!

      B.

      I had very little doubt that one of them had AKo with the A:diamond: but there was no way I was going to fold given the small chance I was wrong. :s_cry:

      Could you have gotten away from this hand? If so where??

      9 Big bets flushed, pun intended, away :f_biggrin:

      I make a deposit at Poker770 and they flick the doom switch!



      then they gave me this to keep me grinding :D :f_biggrin: :s_biggrin:



      All in all a tough time being sucked out on left, right and centre. I'm still smiling though! (Probably won't be tomorrow :s_cry: )

      I just had fun at the razz tables on stars. Only 86 hands but I think I played well (for the most part).



      I took a break then came back for more.



      PS needs more razz content!!!! There is a killing to be made at this game.

      I finally climbed back out of the trough! :f_biggrin: It only took about 8000 hands to repair one days damage, though I think that's because I switched to 6 max in the depths of despair and haven't looked at a FR table since.

      What a fun game! I get to let the inner psycho off his leash :) and do stuff like this

      IPoker, $0.10/$0.20 Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5:club: 5:heart:
      UTG calls, 2 folds, BTN raises, SB folds, Hero calls, UTG calls

      Flop: (6.5 SB) Q:spade: 9:heart: 9:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks, BTN bets, Hero raises, UTG folds, BTN calls

      Turn: (5.3 BB) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets, BTN calls

      River: (7.2 BB) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets, BTN calls

      Results: 9.2 BB pot (0.3 BB rake)
      Final Board: Q:spade: 9:heart: 9:diamond: 4:spade: 4:diamond:
      BTN showed J:spade: A:heart: and lost (-4 BB net)
      Hero mucked 5:club: 5:heart: and won 8.9 BB (4.9 BB net)


      I would never have pulled that one on a FR table :D

      The best thing though is that my $50 starting capital is still intact

      Good luck! I'll be following this.

      I'm looking forward to the red line poking its head above the 0-line.

      I'm doing the "Go For Status" promo on PP. Great timing PS! I have just made a small deposit at PP and got a bonus. So now I have twice the motivation to play at PP (whose software I'm not really fond of) so I should clear them both nicely.

      I have been using sidekick to estimate what I have raked, it seems a little conservative in its estimations though, HM2 seems closer to the mark so I'll be using that to let me know how I'm doing during the day.

      OK so we're 5 days into April and I've hit the mark 3 times already and I haven't started today's fun & games yet, so barring a major catastrophe this should be easy.

      Fingers crossed.

      I just logged back into PP to carry on my grind for today's 10 SP and almost made a mess in my underwear! Bank error in my favour collect $1500+ but nope!

      Awesome!!

      Great work! Now we have to change the rules - maybe a flush should rank higher than a full house...?

      Thanks!

      Yeah a flush would become quite a rare hand so it would have to go up the rankings, also you would have to find a spot for 5 of a kind too.
