Full Tilt

Just heard about all this.....

So the jist I get is that FT have been spending players monies not expecting the shit to hit the fan and everyone try and withdraw their funds at the same time?

Where are the regulators in all of this? Surely the body responsible for issuing the gaming licence should look into things like this??

It really does seem like it's the end of online poker.

United v Barcelona

I think we'll get beat. Am trying to work out formation/team and tactics.

Am going for


I think we'll man mark busquets and have Rooney and Hernandez really pushing their centre backs. The back four will play really narrow and force the ball wide where barca don't like playing.

Whatever happens though I think we'll get beaten.....

Weather , Fuel Costs and Kitesurfing

I can't believe the weather at the moment. I heard today that it hasn't rained where I live in Norfolk for 6 weeks now. Not that i'm complaining it's been so nice. I have been driving to the beach alot to watch one of the guys from work who Kitesurfs. In the next few weeks I'm going to start taking lessons as it looks amazing.

Driving around a bit has really hit me how much fuel is at the moment. I have put £125 worth of Diesel in my car in th elast week. It's now £6.50 a gallon which is over $10. It's absolutely ridiculous. My standard of living would be so much higher if fuel prices were even where they were a year ago. £1.45 a litre is stupid, especially when you realise how much Duty/VAT the government take for that. How much was petrol when they fuel protests happened a few years ago? Nowhere near what they are now and yet people just seem to take it....

1000 Mile Bike Ride

I'm planning on doing a 1000 mile bike ride in September. The company i work for has offices across Europe so the plan is to start in germany and cycle through amsterdam, brussels, paris, london to Norwich.

The idea is to do it over 2 weeks and average 80 miles for a street children charity. The training will be harsh, i'm going to start cycling to work which is a 45 mile round trip...

Saying all that, I need to get a bike first...

Finally a bink.

Virgin run a brilliant free roll 3 times a week. Basically it normally has around 100 entrants but they give £250 in prizes. I binked it winning 7500 V-Points and I can transfer the V-Points for cash so basically won £75 in a free roll with 99 entrants.

How are you supposed to win putting villains on a range of hands at low limits when they will call with anything?

Fuck off

I hate poker.

Variance is fucking bollox. I have played enough on enough different sites to realise the RNG arn't the same on all of them.

Boss is just shit. No wonder no fucker plays there.

Friday, March 25, 2011


Fuck off

Players on boss are so shite. So is the RNG

Just check out the text on this hand. Fucking 3 bet raises all in with 3 fucking 4 off pre flop. Probably seen the run i was on and new he was on for a winner. Then put "lol" in the chat box. What a cunt....

And Get fucked. All in on the flop, who calls this?

Never Ending

Worst run ever.Fact

more shite from today.

All all in pre

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Don't know why i bother

Final table last 2 hands. Both all in pre flop

Boss is so shit it's unreal

RNG/Retards/Le Mans

Oh how i've missed the beats on Boss.......

It is unbelievable. It's a mixture of the retards you get playing there and a poor RNG.I'm on one of those runs that you can't help but laugh. I haven't won a flip in god knows how long. Some one just hit runner runner for the straight flush to be my nut flush on the flop. Just had QQ called AIPF by Q4 that hit quad 4's. Even when you seem to hit the flop on boss you seem to lose! As i'm only playing micro limits i just laugh at it!! There are some really poor players here as well that adds to it.

Away from poker I broke my metatarsal playing football on Sunday so am on crutches and have stupid boot on my right foot. I had scored a 35 yard screamer (shit goalkeeper)earlier but i'll now be out for the rest of the season.

It should be a busy few months anyway. I have a stag do and wedding to go to in Worthing in April and another wedding in May. I'm heading to the german alps in April for the weekend to see the sites and i'm planning to see my sister in spain with this bird i've been seeing in July. I'm also looking at going to le mans this year. Has anyone been? Any advice?

Lol - Just lost AA v J10 AIPF for the world with 23 left in a $1's getting beyond a joke

And here's another one. Guy shoves PRE and it is amazing how many times in a row this is happening ~:-)

All in on the flop:

lol, i really can't win anything!!

Do arsenal fans really care they didn't win yesterday?

errrr probably not

I don't understand some Arsenal fans point of view however. A few have said (after i laughed at their keeper and defence) that the same back 5 beat Barcelona. That's really not a good argument. Barcelona were poor and will still probably turn Arsenal over at the Nou Camp. It beggers belief that Wenger did not buy a goalkeeper in the summer or adequate back up for vermaelen.

In the same vain I think United could beat any team in the World away in any one game. However we won't do it enough times to win the champions league and we'll be lucky to win the league. We've done well to have home FA cup ties as well...

I don't mind Arsenal. Wilshere is a good player. I really don't think Arsenal will be that annoyed that they lost yesterday, however i can't see them winning anything else this year. Next year i'd be worried if they buy a decent keeper and a couple of centre halfs

Back on Boss and Rome

I'd taken all my money out of accounts and stopped playing then Virgin Poker sent me a free £5 promo through the post. Played a bit and built it up to a tenner and then played a V point free roll. It's actually a pretty good free roll! They give awa 25,000 V points and you can transfer 1 v point for 1p so the tourney has basically a £250 prize pool. It only had 118 runners and i finished 4th for £25. Should have done better apart from losing to runner runner for the straight AQ all in v K10 and then lost 99 to A7.

I then played one 30 manner last night which i binked so i'm sitting there with nearly £50 at them moment. Am only going to play MTT and MTTSNG and see how i do.

Am off to Rome and Venice for a week tomorrow which should be a laugh. Will catch Lazio v Bari at the olympic stadium in rome on sunday which should be good

Knocking a girl out whilst shagging her in the sea

Well as someone asked....

I met this girl when i was in Spain seeing my sister and we were out and shitfaced. We walked down the beach about 4 in the morning and ended up skinny dipping in the sea...

One thing led to another and i ended up shagging her.. I can remember thinking how sensual it was and i was really enjoying it. I was facing towards the beach and she was straddling me facing to sea. Anyway it was all going well and then this rogue fucking tsunami wave seemed to come out of nowhere (i was facing the beach remember) and crashed into us. I got thrown forward headbutting the girl and knocked her out.....

So i just held her up and finished (not really....) and dragged her back to shore where a load of spanish people came running over as they thought she'd drowned only to find us both spark naked and her starting to come round...

Then got dressed back into the clothes i'd just been out in now covered in sand and went back to hers to carry on (remember shitfaced) in a really bad sand getting fucking everywhere including inside the condom type of sex, gave up after realising it was like shagging sand paper and went to walk home.

I then woke up in a bush then next morning with some serious sand knob rot and remembered being laughed at by the spanish people when they came running over..

I then started going to different places so i'd never have to see this bird again and met a really really fit german girl who i couldn't do anything with because it felt like my knob was going to fall off.... must be karma

She then added me on facebook....... Still pending...

Move forward or go back??

I've a dilema at the moment...

I used to work for a manufacturer of sign printing equipment and earn OK money. I then had a bit of serious life tilt and had to leave. Am now working for a massive insurance company on about half the money I used to earn however i'm well thought of and hope to progress through the ranks.

I have no the potential to go back and do the same thing as I used to do. The money should be much better than i'm on (but not the same as I used to be on which is understandable after life tilt) with a company car, iphone, laptop etc. The issue is that it'll be me and one other bloke working for this company so there will be no potential career development. The POTENTIAL earnings where I currently work are higher down the line, however maybe 20 people in the centre earn that amount out of 700 so is it somewhere I can earn that amount??

Am really unsure what to do... Do i just go to the money? Neither are jobs that anyone strives to do when they're younger so surely th emoney is important? Or job security.... Am undecided...

Fuck off and Die 2

Lol at Amatay's comment on my last post. He's exactly right of course and my tilt levels are one of the reasons i suck ASS at poker. But then I am a united supporter so only sing when i'm winning....

Fuck off and die 2 heading is non poker related and bird related.

Met a great bird on saturday night and went back round hers. Had fun saturday and sunday with her... all good..

She then goes mental on a facebook comment to her friend (that pops up on my fucking news feed of course) saying how she had a heavy weekend and came to some realisations about herself and has basically fucked off back to her boyfriend...

Am starting to get paranoid now, the last 5 birds i've been with i've had one night stands with and then they fuck off (I feel so used..!). To be honest i did headbutt one of them and knock them out (by accident whilst shagging her in the sea)so didn't really expect her to call but what's wrong?!? Am i shit in bed?!?! Shame about bird Saturday, I really liked her.....

Poker front, not really played - Roll $122

Enjoying the game

I'm enjoying poker for the first time in a long time (mainly as am doing OK)

Am playing the 18 manners and keep increasing my ROI and it's now at 40% after about 210 games (small sample size i know)

All i want to do is to keep playing well and keep increasing the number of tables i'm playing and games i play a day. Am going to stick to strick bankroll management as well and see how quickly I can move up.

All i want is to be able to make a few hundred quid a month. This month I am probably going to profit £75 on $1 games playing 10 - 15 a day so hopefully a couple of hundred quid shouldnt be too difficult

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Attitude needs work

Played a load of games tonight ($1 - 18 mans on Tilt). the issue i have is that i've always bust in a load of games before i get my first cash. I must have played 16 games tonight at $1.20. I assumed i was running badly until i just checked my account and i've profited by about $8 which is actually a really good ROI

My ROI is currently at 30%. In the next few days i think i'll start throwing in a few $2 games in as well. My poker goals are actually quite small. When i move out and get a proper set up (base unit and a couple of monitors) I plan to try and get up to playing around $4 games. If i can play 50 a night and make 20% ROI then i'd be able to make $40 so £25 a night plus rakeback of $5.40 a night so £3 ish. £28 a night 5 days a week is an extra £500 a month.

the problem is i know what people are like predicting greatness at poker and world domination and it's normally pipe dreams and bollox. All i'm doing at the moment is trying to work on the game and get a few thousand in to try and get an accurate idea of my true ROI and gradually increasing the number of simultaneous games i can play (currently 12 on a laptop screen)

I'm also going to keep my role in. I started with $3 and keep withdrawing so never move up limits. Am going to keep it in there and try and build.

Oh and don't play rush...... grrrrrrrr

Full Tilt 18 Manners

Well been doing OK at poker. I've not been playing much, maybe 6 or 10 eighteen man SNG on Full Tilt. I started with about $5 and have withdrawn around £100 and Now have $33 after a good run of 3 wins out of 6 games tonight.

I think i'm running around 24% ROI (mainly from HUSNG) but only from a small number of games.

I really think i'll do well playing these the 27 and 45 manners but i really need to multi table better. Am on a small laptop and can only cope with 6 or 6 tables at the moment.

Didn't get the promotion at wotk but came close so i believe. I got a lot of good feedback and have been given more responsibilities.... on the same shit wages..
