Virgin $2-$4

Well i was up about $1000 yesterday on Virgin $2-$4 cash. I have stopped playing today about $250 up.

I was doing much better and was about $850 up when i got dealt ace 3.. I i raised from the small blind and the big blind called..

Flop 33 A..

basically all the chips went in and he spiked a king on the river to make a bigger full house.. That was a $900 pot so if i win that i'm well up but these things happen..

A $250 profit for the day is fine by me...

I seem to find the $2-$4 tables easier to play then the lower limts as there are less idiots and everything seems to be going well at the moment...

Up.. and Down...

Well i have started playing cash games for the last few days...

On Pokerstars yesterday i played a variety of $1-$2 up to $2-$4. No when you play heads up sit and go's there isn't much variety in winnings. I win constantly just not a lot...

Yesterday i managed to blow $900 on stars so i fired up Virgin today and played some $2-$4 and $3-$6 and am $950 up for the day..

All this really shows me is that i need to find a site that offer a good rakeback deal now i am playing cash at these limits... Stars don't, boss might if i push them but i will have a scout around for the best deals..

Any ideas?? Do they automatically transfer the rakeback into your account??

Glastonbury and Vegas

Well i've not played too much poker since my last post as i've been at Glastonbury, so as i write this i am still trying to de mud myself...

It was ok and Pete Docherty is a fucking idiot...

I am supposed to going to Vegas this week but after checking flights they are now stupidly expensive. If virgin had given me the money in time they were £500 are now well over a grand so i'm not sure if i'm going to go or not...

I'd like to go but it'll mean forking out my own pocket which is bad at this precise moment...

Pokerstars $2-$4

Well i was getting a bit bored playing heads up all the time so i decided to play some cash games on pokerstars.

I sat at a 6 seater $2-$4 table and bought in for the maximum of $400. I had this up quite quickly to around $660 when this hand happened...

PokerStars Game #10510420812: Hold'em No Limit ($2/$4) - 2007/06/19 - 06:54:48 (ET)Table 'Dejanira' 6-max

SFCellman: mucks hand
United113 collected $1351.20 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***Total pot $1354.20 Rake $3 Board [Ac Tc Jd Qd Qh]
Seat 1: poonjockey folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 2: OZlander folded before Flop
Seat 3: SFCellman (button) mucked [Kc 6c]
Seat 4: tom90cu (small blind) folded on the Flop
Seat 5: capaneo (big blind) folded before FlopSeat 6: United113 showed [Jc Js] and won ($1351.20) with a full house, Jacks full of Queens

Now the call on the turn was a bit loose as i put a king in his hand for the straight but figured if the board paired i'd clean him out which is what happened so i had huge implied odds...

I think this is actually the biggest amount i have won from a single hand

FOR FUCKS SAKE!!!!!!!!!!

This is getting beyond a joke

$100 5 seater STT. 1st prize $350 2nd $150

3 Left i'm on big blind

Dealt KcQc

Guy has same chips as me and moves in, i call

He has Queen 7

flop 7 k 7

Honestly everytime at higher stakes

It really can't be right.........

I give up...

For fucks sake.. honestly

I give up at the moment, i really do...

Why is it that every big pot i play i just get completely sucked out, it's unbelivable

Was about level for the day playing $50 Heads up sit and go's and $110 heads up turbo sit and go's and decided to play some $1 - $2 cash on poker stars. Was playing about $215 when i get dealt Ks Jh in the big blind. 1 player minimum raises so i call and 2 see the flop which comes Kd 4h jd. I bet guy re raises and i push all in, turn 7d river 10 d. He shows king jack with the fucking king of diamonds so i lose wto the flush ith the same fucking hand.. Minus $200.

Honestly why does this happen everytime i play higher limits or for the big pots???

It's really starting to fuck me off

Play More!!!!


I have finally worked out how i am going to win more money at poker!!! and that is to play more...

I'm still playing $20 heads up games on pokerstars, after the email conversations i had with the poker room manager at Virgin there still has been no change in the heads up games there. I know this is going to make me sound really big headed but i am so confident at them moment playing these games on pokerstars and i feel i am better than anyone i play. I'll list my sharkscope stats below which i think are ok but please feel free to rip them apart and let me know what you think of them.. Should i move up limits? Are they good or average or poor??

Games played Av Profit Av Stake Av R.O.I Total profit

501 $3 $21 17% $1,632

Heads up games played 486
Won 295 lost 191

I'm also playing 5 seater SNG on Virgin and profiting on that, my last 8 results on sharkscope are:

5 seater $20 SNG, Profit $48
5 seater $20 SNG, Profit -$22
5 seater $20 SNG, Profit $48
5 seater $20 SNG, Profit -$22
5 seater $20 SNG, Profit $48
5 seater $20 SNG, Profit -$22
5 seater $20 SNG, Profit -$22
5 seater $20 SNG, Profit $48

So $104 profit

I have finally heard from Virgin last Friday. They said they will transfer $4000 into my virgin account to pay for thge WSOP vegas trip. I plan to play at event 49 a NLHE 3 day event but that stars in a couple of weeks and i still have nothing booked and they money hasn't been transferred so virgin and me better pull our fingers out quickly...
