I'm Curfewed

So many texts off mates today saying things like:

"Where are you going tonight?" To which I reply "I'm curfewed i'm not allowed out past 19.15".

And "Are you allowed out on NYE?"

Err no...

"What will happen if you break your curfew for a night?" Errr it depends on the circumstances but If it was to go and get pissed for New Years eve in thepub i think i'd be taken straight to jail without passing go....

So i think i'll stay in!!!

I've been trying to put more volume in and have been playing double or nothing 10Man SNG, which are piss easy. I reckon I should be able to win over the long run 7 out of 10 and am playing 4 to 5 at the same time.

Entry for 10 would be £110 and winnings for 7/10 would be £140 so if i can play 30 a day entry would be £330 and winnings of £420 giving a £90 a day profit from £10 entry SNG. I'd then also generate £270 in monthly rakeback..

Can you live on that? £90 a day x 6 = £540 a week??

No sex please we're british...

Grrrrrr. All my thoughts at the moment are based on sleeping with someone,... anyone...

I'm not sure i've actually had sex THIS YEAR... I was seeing a girl at the end of last year and we split up in the new year so i don't think I slept with her after new year. I suppose i could see it as a good thing that I have slept with anyone this year as I was in prison for 6 months and if i'd slept with someone in jail it would have meant a quite severe change of lifestyle..!

What i've found myself doing now is giving girls I see starting hands in No limit hold em. Take Sarah Harding from girls aloud for example would be pocket aces that you would play no matter what situation. Susan Boyle on the other hand would be 72off that no matter what situation, you wouldn't go anywhere near. As i have been card dead for so long I am starting to look at hands like 34suited and A5off thinking they look appealing.... I hope it doesnt get to the stage when i'm shoving all in with a 63...

Christmas was alright as all my family were here. HAd a huge argument with a woman and her daughter who live round the corner earlier. They've basically stolen one of my mums cats that cost a fortune and she put it through quarantine which also costs a fortune. We know where the cat is and have asked them to stop feeding it and letting it in but they keep doing that so it basically lives there now. We have had it back here, but it's cruel to keep a cat locked in and everytine it leaves it goes back to their house so we don't know what to do. Today they came round saying it need to go to the vet. I said that it was nice you've basically had the cat as your own but come to us when it needs the vet. She started saying she was going to call the RSPCA to which i replied "Why because you stole our cat?" and she got arsy so i ended up saying "piss off you miserable old cow.."

The nerve of some people!!!

More hands needed

Even though my last post says about not playing cash games, I need to play about 400more raked hands to qualify for the 10,000 euro freerole in a few days. Yesterday I fired up 4 tables of micro limit 0.02/0.04 cash tables and sat down with 4euro on each. I played about 100 hands between them and came of 18euros up which was alright. I had friends round last night so didn't play in any of my usual tournaments.

Today i sat at a 0.05/0.10 table for about an hour and played a 5seater 5euro SNG. I won the SNG for 12.50 profit and was 3euro up on the cash table. I currently 20/43 in a MTT with the top 15 paid so hopefully can do well.

I've realised I need to do far more volume when playing. Not more hours but more multi tabling. I fould 4 tabling last night alright and it might have helped. I really will try to play more tables at the same time. It went alright today with cash, SNG and MTT.

My brothers coming down with his wife and her sister tonight so it'll be a houseful as my sister and her mate are already here. It'll be nice to all be together at christmas for the first time in years anyway.

So i hope you all have a good day tommorrow anyway.

Merry Christmas

Must not play cash games

Must not play cash games
Must not play cash games
Must not play cash games

Solution - Stop playing cash!! or get better.....

Reindeer Bounty

Entered a reindeer bounty on Boss which was a 5euro tourney with 1000 guaranteed and 503 runners. They added a 50euro bounty on Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen if you knocked them out.

I was sat next to Donner have a good crack about santa and was double average stack size. Donner went all in UTG and of course every fucker called. I had QdJd so called too and won!!!! So thats 50euro anyway!! and or course won a huge pot so am now chip leader.. x

Raise the River

Well i think i might start all my posts with the french model from the marks and spencer advert...

hmmmmm

anyway....

I joined raise the river and have posted on there and have got some really good feedback and advice from people on there.

I played two tourneys tonight for a total of 9euro buy in. I tried being a bit more aggresive and was stupid to be honest. I busted out of both when i had healthy chip stacks. I need to try and be more aggresive in latter stages and not early stages..

I amup about 15euro for the day after sitting for 2o minutes at a NL20 table. The button had just passed and i was bored so i paid the big blind which i never do but couldn't be arsed to wait for the BB. I got dealt 88 and made a set on the flop and doubled up which was nice.

Am not going to play anymore tonight. In a few days Boss hold a 10,000 Euro freeroll for players who have played 1500 raked hands over the last 30 days. On average boss only has about 10,000 players logged in during busy times and when you discount the tournament players and free play players, I'm not sure how many people will play in this?! They do get 5,000 playing free rolls but hopefully there won't be many and I can do well.

I still haven't heard about this job at Aviva. They want stupid amounts of info in a pre employment check such as passport, bank statements, P45's, Criminal Record Check, Credit Check. Hopefully i'll hear soon and start in the new year..

Top 40


I've had don't stop believing by Journey on a CD in my car for about a year. I'm listening to the charts for the first time in years to hopefully hear that Rage against the machine are christmas number one and Journey are number 9!! I think this is because a little gay man sang it on X Factor...

I really hope rage against the machine are number one. All these songs in the charts are such manufactured shite. Cheryl Cole, Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas they all sound the same. It'll be good to stick it to the X factor shite...

Have played a load of MTT for about 9 hours today and haven't done exceptionally well... Final tabled in 1 and went out 11th in another which was annoying. I'm registered for a 1euro rebuy and the 3euro and 6 euro between 1900 and 2000 and including those buy ins i'm about even for the day so hopefully can go deep.

I need to go into Norwich tomorrow to pick up some stuff from Marks and Spencer for my mum and i have to get the bus... I haven't got on a bus in years.. Hopefully though in Marks and Spencer i'll see who i think is the most beautiful women in the world, even though she is french..

Enjoy

EDIT - frustrating evening again.. just busted 11th out of 540 odd in the 3euro for a pointless cash and finished 70 odd out of 700ish in the rebuy for again a small cash.. I think i'll be about 20euro up for the day.. rubbish....

J3?? Come on really?!?!

Well in the 3euro tonight, hit trip 6's on a Jack high flop and re raised someone with average chips and get called by J3

Turn 3
River J

What is it with french players? there are loads of the fuckers on boss and they are all fucking useless. Who calls with J3?? French retards thats who...

What levels do people stop making these calls on?

Aces Cracked Again

Well since the 4th in the 3euro MTT the other night, i final tabled the 6euro MTT the night before last but only finished 9th for a small cash. Last night i final tabled the same tourney and was chip leader with 5 remaining and lookinjg for the win. I got dealt AA and had that lovely feeling when someone goes all in before you. I call and he flips Kc9c and hits the flush. Even then i had about 5bb left over and got it all in with AJ against 44 and lost that flip too. Really frustrated.

I was having a look at my sharkscope MTT stats yesterday. What are good MTT sharkcope stats?? My name has a little shark next to it which I take as a good thing?

Doing things wrong

Well i realised a few things last night. I recovered from that hit in my last post to finish 4th in the tourney and ship 105euros which is both good and annoying at the same time. My problems at the moment seem to be tilting too much.

i read an interesting post at littleacornmans blog http://littleacornpoker.blogspot.com/ that made me think. I'm not really in a good place in my head at the moment in life in general. My attitude is then being transferred onto the Poker tables so i'm tilting too easily. My bankroll is now about 365 Euros so i'm going to play the 3euro tournament and try and build that up. I'm going to avoid the cash tables and higher buy in tourneys atm till i feel confident.

From amatays comment the other day I have also joined raise the river. From just reading peoples comments to other posts has helped me a lot, and i'll start posting there soon. My first posts are going to be things like:

1. To play only MTT, what percentage would you be looking at to win?
2. How many MTT would someone who wants to do it for a living play? (not that I can do it for a living, its just I have the time to TRY and do it as i'm not working)
3. How to build chipstack midway through the tournament in a low level entry/high idiot content with people calling a lot with trash. (I have been waiting for hands to double up/get paid highly however when you get sucked out you're out, rather than winning a lot of smaller pots.

I'm also going to try and learn more. Through reading books/blogs and posts on RTR.

I hate my life

I am so bored at the moment. It's difficult not working and i don't know where my future lies. I would love to be able to play poker for a living. I think thats why i get so pissed off with the beats when they hit. I drift from game to game trying to find one that suits and all the while my bankroll is dropping and dropping.

I think i'm going to focus on playing PLO. I'm going to put a few thousand hands in over christmas and see how i get on..

I'm also going to play less over the next week or so before i start hitting the PLO tables and try and learn a bit more.

One thing that concerns me is this: In a previous job i needed to speak to 300 people a day to get a certain amount of sales. After doing it a while i got to the stage where i wasn't doing that and realised i'd gone too far to be able to do it so left. I hope it hasn't got to the stage with my poker that it's so ingrained in me to play the way i do, which blatantly isn't a winning play and that i can improve

Only time will tell i suppose

So Sick

I'm really starting to think that i'm just unlucky. I understand about variance etc etc but it seems i win coming from behind in the 1st hand of a rebut tournament when it really doesnt make much difference and get really unlucky when it counts.

I'm not sure how to rectify, please see the below hand histories and say what you would do differently?!? Maybe betting the flop on the AQ v A10 hand but have a look......

Saturday, December 12, 2009

United are rubbish

Chelski drop points and united piss it up as usual......

Rubbish...

Not really played that much poker, I need a break to get my game back together, if i play too much i lose concentration and play bad...

I've realised i need to do the following:

1. Not play AQ
2. Focus on buliding my stack in MTT after the 4th level
3. Not call the blinds with nominal holdings..
4. Only playing premium hands in the first 3 levels.

Oh and not get tilted

and don't get tilted

and don't get tilted...

Or tilted...

Take a break

I'm going to stop playing for a little while i think. I'm not enjoying it really at the moment and there is no point playing i don't think when you feel bad.

I seem to be getting dead angry with everything at the moment and i don't know why. I can seem to get motivated by anything and get bored doing whatever i'm doing really quickly. I'll go over to my sisters with my mum and get bored after two minutes and want to be back home and then come back home and have nothing to do here. My mum and sister are in London at the moment so i was at home on my own yesterday and did nothing. I played some poker but didn't enjoy it and keep getting so angry with the other players when they make stupid plays and get lucky. So i end up stressed and i don't know why. My roll is about 330 Euro now which is down from the other week but i still need to remember it all started from 13euros....

I had a few films on yesterday such as eagle eye, disturbia, GI Joe and District 9. They were all good and worth a watch, especially eagle eye

Interview

Well the interview surprisingly went ok. They need to do all the checks and if they come out ok then i'll start on the 4th January. The problem is that i told them everything that will come up on the checks but i doubt they'll hire me due to the bankruptcy.

On the poker front i'm playing so badly at the moment. i lose concentration and make stupid plays..

Am just going to play the 1euro rebuy and the 1000euro 3 euro entry tournament on boss at 7pm and 7.35 and play those till i increase my roll.

I really should start setting some targets. I want to try and win 2 tourneys a month and final table 6 times and try and cash in 40% of tourneys entered..

I really need to start keeping proper records as well..

Job interview

Well i've got an interview tomorrow at Arriva (Norwich Union). It's not the best job but at least its work. I'm dreading the interview I really am. Not the interview itself, i could do the job with my eyes closed it's just the amount of information they want. I can see the conversation going something like this:

So why did you leave your last job?

Well i was caught with £50,000 worth of cocaine and arrested in the company car so resigned before being sent to prison for six months, during that time I was declared bankrupt so will fail the credit check you're going to do on me for the FSA, but do i get free health care with this job?!

Am on to a winner i think.....

Saturday, December 05, 2009

Same as yesterday

Same two tournaments

1st ran KK into AA

2nd ran QQ into KK

So when others have it it holds up, when i have it i get beaten

Fuck the Jacksons........

Non poker related rant coming up.......

I hate the fucking Jacksons. I think it's terrible... I've read a few books relating to the original Michael Jackson child molestation case against Jordie Chandler in 1993 and he is gulty as hell. Yet everyone loves him because he sang a few catchy songs.. What sort of World are we living in???

So when recently Evan Chandler, Jordie Chandlers father committed suicide do you here it on the news at all? No, but when the Molester dies you see nothing else on any news network apart from fucking retards crying with candles upset that a child molester has just died. So after Evan's death what does fucking freak Jermaine Jackson come out with?

"

Former Hollywood dentist Evan Chandler was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in his New Jersey home on Nov. 5. The elder Chandler was reportedly terminally ill, but Jermaine believes he killed himself because he felt guilty.

Speaking at a charity event at the Magic Johnson AMC theatre on Monday, the “Daddy’s Home” singer said: “All the things that we’ve been through as a family, the false allegations against my brother, from the 1993 case where they were accusing him of the most horrible things. This kid’s father has committed suicide because he just couldn’t take it and now the kid has come forward and said Michael never touched him.”

Michael always maintained his innocence, and eventually settled out of court with the Chandler family in January 1994 for $22 million. Jordan, 29, also had to sign a contract agreeing never to talk about the allegations.


HE KILLED HIMSELF BECAUSE HE FELT GUILTY???

How deranged and nasty can you be? But coming from the Jackson family it's probably par for the course.

Jacksons.... Fuck you all

Back on Stars

Well i realised the games i need to be playing are MTT of anything from 30 people up. Virgin don't have enough of these due to player traffic so set up an account in my mums name on pokerstars and deposited a tenner. The MTT on stars have daft guarantees for low stakes entry due to the amount of entries so i entered a $2 tournament with $1500 to the winner and 480 places paid and 4700 entrants. I ended up being donked out in 650th in a pot fof the chip lead when my aces got beaten all in after the flop of 9 6 2 rainbow by QQ when the queen hit the turn. AAAAAAARrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg

I was playing some low level cash games on virgin and was up 6 buy ins at a 10 euro table so quit that up. I need to try and rake a bit more in the last few days of november to get into the top 10 rakers for the 500 euro freerole they offer, i'm 101st at the moment.

So i'm going to really hit the depositor freerole tournaments on pokerstars this weekend and regulaly play the 10Euro 3500 guarantee on virgin and a regular daily tournament on Pokerstars in the evening too. I'll also try to play the quarter million on stars and see if i can get to the million in a satellite. Saying all that though i have $11 in stars and won't be able to add anymore.

Joppa - Hi mate are you ok? Can't seem to comment on your blog?!

Change of Play

I really took a look at my strategy at heads up tournaments yesterday and drastically changed a few things. It's amazing how changing a few parts of my games has changed my results. Out of the 12, 10Euro heads up games i played tonight i won 11 and lost 1 and that was when i was 75% to win the hand.

My roll has now breached the 600Euro mark so am going to take a shot at the 20Euro games tomorrow and see how i get on.

8 + ? = 8

Well job hunting is RIDICULOUS. I applied for a job with aviva (norwich union) and don't know wht i bothered. At the end it said it will do a credit check (will be very bad for me!) they will do a criminal record check (bad again) and they will check what you've been doing for the last 2 years (also bad). I then looked to get car insurance with aviva and they won't accept anyone with a criminal record for car insurance so i doubt they'll employ people with one. I had a meeting today with an agency that was supposed to help me find work. Instead they made me do a maths and english test and it was A JOKE. Questions like, what is the missing number. 8 + ? = 8 and what is half of 16? The english was just as bad, things like what word is spelt wrong? " I like this very mutch" It was a joke...

Am doing ok at poker. Have now turned the 13 euro i had into 515. I've been keeping more accurate records at Heads Up STT 10 Euro and am winning quite consistantly. I'm really going to give it a go at making proper money. I need to decide when to move up limits and also what MTT to play. There's no point winning 20 euro one day on STT and losing the same on tourney entries.

If i can (which i doubt) build my bankroll to 3-4k and consitantly win enough to get by then when my tag gets taken off in march i might just fuck off overseas and try and travel and win enough to take me on and on and on. That's the dream anyway. 500 Euro will probably be enough to get me to spain for a week so at least i have something to work from!!

Going Well

Well i can't find a job and the criminal record is a bit annoying!! My sisters back from Spain so am just spending time with her and my mum.

I have been playing quite a bit of poker. I had 13 euro in my Viegin account and have boosted that to just over 400. I'm doing really well in MTT at the moment. I won a 1euro rebuy and have 5 other final tables in about 20 tournaments, 2 seconds, 2 sixths and a tenth. I can't get on with heads up STT on virgin at the stakes i play i do better on pokerstars but cant get any money into there.

I was wondering, is it possible to play as a pro when all you do is play MTT??

His dad's dogs dead....

Well Hi!!!

As i say i was sentenced to 2 years at the Edinburgh Sherriff court and sent to HMP Edinburgh. I was sentenced with a guy I know so it wasn't too bad being shipped there as at least i knew someone who i could share a cell with. It really wasn't as bad as i expected. I took Rossi's advice and kept myself to myself for a bit to get the lay of the land and got a job in the prison gardens cutting grass and picking up litter which was alright as it got me outside.

I was located in an enhanced wing of the short termers hall which meant i was low category. I shared a cell with my co accused for about 6 weeks until i moved into a single cell which gave me my own space. The main thing was the boredom. I started really hitting the gym mainly for something to do but really got into it and played football alot as well that was kind of like mean machine!

There was a poker game going during the association time so i joined it nearly as soon as i got there. They were playing a tournament between 4 of us for a half ounce of tobacco (about £2.65). This was shit though as you only really got an hour and a half so what they did if the game wasn't finished was to do a best out of three hands so it turned to luck. They also had a stupid blind structure of 10 and 20 with 10,000 chips to start so after a few weeks i started to get them to change the game. What we ended up doing was giving the people playing 3000 chips to start with and called that a buy in. What happened then is that the game was never ending and people could come and go as they pleased, if you won a load of chips and someone didn't have any you would sell them 3000 for £1 and every week the plus and minuses were added up for items off the canteen sheet. There was the odd argument about end of day totals written down but at the start it went quite smoothly. i was on average around £15 a week up which was good as we only got paid £9 a week. It grew so we always had a table of 10 playing but people started not playing so we had a rule that you couldn't play until you paid the debts. We then got a load of young dickheads playing and it ended up with me being up £60 one week and only getting paid £4 so i set up a new game with the original people to make it go smoothly which really fucked off one guy that was there playing so i had a couple of run ins with him....

They were all shite though and to be honest didn't really know how to play. There were a load of arguments over hands (most people thought the rule was that the higher kicker automatically won irrelavant of what was on the board) with the most arguments being when someone had a low pair and the board came up for example 9988K and i would say that the A4 has beaten the pocket 55 and it became a running joke me saying "i've got 3 pairs!". Nobody would spot the flush when there were four of a suit on the board but it did get frustrating when someone hit a 2 outer when they didn't really know what they were doing.

One funny thing that happened away from poker was down to the language difference. People in Edinburgh don't say "do you know?" they just say "Ken" and they call people George "Dod" this young guy just walked up to me and said "Ken Dod?" so I just said "yeah his dads dogs dead"... he didn't know who Ken Dodd was though so thought i was mad...

During the Norway v Scotland game a guy came up to me and said "Scotlands problem is that they can't afford to buy any decent players"!!!! Idiot.... I just said "Who do you want them to buy a couple of brazilians?!?!"

So i'm out and looking for work which is hard. It'll take ages as nobody is touching me with a barge pole due to my record. I did find 13 euros in my Virgin Poker account... not sure where that came from but have turned it to 200 but am only really playing for something to do. All the bank accounts attached to that account have been cancelled in the bankruptsy so even if i win i have no idea how to get the money out!!

Hope you're all alright

Court

Well i got a phone call last Thursday from my solicitor saying an indictment had been served and i needed to be in court on Tuesday 17th February so yesterday. Yesterday was also my 30th birthday which seemed fitting seeing how my life seems to be going at the moment.

My solicitor is useless. On the phone he told me to bring photocopies of the character references i've got. He asked me yesterday for the originals. You told me to bring photocopies i said.. Why would i do that are you stupid he replied which pissed me off straight away, so it ended up in an argument with me saying "If you asked me to bring originals, why would i not do that? Tell me why i wouldn't? Do you think i think this isn't important??". He then basically said that the social worker and probation office reports the judge will get and the character references will make no difference whatsoever so i have to be back in court on the 17th March for sentencing and that'll be me in prison for a while i expect.

i was booked in the insolvency court on the 25th March for the bankruptsy but i've had to bring that forward to the 24th February so i'll be declared bankrupt next Tuesday and have to sort all my stuff out and get it stored somewhere before being back in court in Edinburgh on the 17th.

On a much much lighter note, and i expect others have noticed this too, but on the Churchill advert on TV at the moment with Rolf Harris in it, has anyone else noticed Rolf's "cum face" in the last few seconds of the ad, when it seems by the look on his face he has just ejaculated all over his digery do??? Please watch the video on youtube below and let me know what you think?!

No poker

well am still here, no poker playe at all due to lack of funds and my computer exploding...

No news from court yet however i did get a letter from thames valley police doing me for "failing to stop after collision, failing to report a collision and driving without due care and attention" which i have no clue what they're talking about.. I also got a summons for non payment of council tax..

When will things start looking up?!?!

At least united are winning.. It makes me laugh, liverpool have been shit for weeks and when suddenly for once they MATCH united's result at the weekend suddenly THEY'RE BACK!! in the title race, how does that work??? We still have to play liverpool at old trafford and apart from the fact liverpool are shit, united should be 5 points clear and cruising. I think after 3 english teams in the champions league semi's last year was positive i think english clubs will stuggle this year, united should beat inter but will be interesting, and chelski arsenal and liverpool arn't playing fantastic football are they??
