      yeah but i wasn't when I started this blog
      An important hand I forgot to talk out
      The pot was $95 (huge for Nl25)
      The money went in after the flop
      Hero had a set of tens
      Villian 1 has pocket kings (overpair)
      Villian 2 has open ended straight draw
      Villian 2 rivered a str8. If I had won my roll at party would of been $1600ish

      Hi everyone. I cleared my $100 bonus and bought a new one. I also played 2 MTTs, the 3K guarentee and the 4K guarentee. In the 3K I pushed A3 from the BU and ran into AJ in the BB whatever. In the 4K, I made the final table. There was 9 players left. I was the BU again with 6-7 BB. The cutoff (similar stack to mine) pushed first in. I called with AJ. He turned over A10. I got a Jack on the flop while he rivered a str8 whatever. I still got $140. I was kinda disappointed as first prize was $1200. Its poker I guess. I also played 3500ish hands at the cash games. I ran pretty good there.
      Rolls
      Party-$1730
      FT-$1600
      total-$3330
      Also I dont use tracking software so posting hands is kinda annoying. I will post a few through weaktight though.

      I dont understand how someone would need to exclude themselves from a game. It seems like you have a gambling problem and shouldnt even be playing poker imo. Nice blog btw.

      That sounds like you have a major problem there with blackjack, I would definatly consider removing your roll and putting it on a pokersite that does not contain any casino side-games ..

      One thing you should definitely do is figure out why you were playing blackjack. I'm guessing it's just plain greed, which was my problem playing roulette. I'd have a bad run playing poker, tilt, and hit the roulette wheel where the odds are completely known and try to get lucky again like I did the first couple times I played. End result was I lost more than half the money I made at my regular game and didn't get to move up when I should have been able to, which sucks because that moved me back a month, maybe more, of solid play. All of this while I played within my time and bankroll limits playing poker. Another guess I'll make is that you for the most part stick to poker bankroll management - it's just a bit of greed that gets to you playing blackjack. I could be wrong of course. :D

      you r right! It is plain greed to try and win some money playing blackjack. In poker I use atleast a 30 buyin rule. Before I started playing poker, I had never gone to a casino and had never really gambled for more than $5 CAD.

      jsut noticing your post re BJ, i know on pother sites it is possible to have certain aspects of them blocked, so am sure that party can accomodate a block if you request it from them.

      As the operate in the UK am sure it forms part of their license as a responsible gambling providor.

      Just make sure you are clear its only blackjack ya want blocked, maybe other casino games too :P
