[ ] Live poker is fun...

Oh my god, whoever invented live poker is a moron. Its like insta lifetilt.

Have some guy to my left when i sit down in the DTD £55 who wouldn't stfu putting ppl on sets, AA or KK every hand. Before sitting down I thought i'd see how long I could go without putting my ipod in. That lasted for under 1 hand.

The idiots who come play poker who think they know how to play then talk about the most twisted reasoning ever tilts me beyond belief.

Anyway, onto the tourney:

I lose about 700 raising preflop and whiffing and 600 in TT < AJo when my first spot to get some chips comes up:

My stack: 2,175, SB: 5,500 @ 100/200. I hold JJ on the button.

Preflop: folds to me, I raise to 600, SB calls, BB folds.

Flop: 8d Ad Jc. He asks what i have (1675) and sets me in. I snap he shows A9h.

''I knew you had that'' he says, orly? wp then.

Its not long til i'm involved again:

My stack: 4,400, UTG: 3,800 @ 100/200. I hold JJ on the button.

Preflop: UTG opens for 800, folds to me, I jam for 4,400. UTG calls.

UTG shows ATo. It rolls off QA8QA. Ship it.

So i'm down to 600 and get it in with KQc 4ways and lose.

The guy to my left was life tilting beyond belief. He came up with the most bizarre reasoning i've ever heard after limping utg with K5o, uber shortie shoves for 550 @ 100/200. I make it up in the bb with K6o (spew was limping pretty much every hand so the K6 is probs a call) and utg spew calls. We check it down as it bricks and shortie tables A7 to win.

He comes out with, ''thats your fault, i only called because i wanted to win all your chips''. (orly? playing the K5o for the huge implied odds it has vs a cold caller getting 3/1) At first i thought he was joking, then it became obv he wasn't. I lolled @ him for him telling me he would've folded the K5o to the shove, strong play sir, limp utg for 200, guy shoves for 550 it comes bk to you for 350 to win 1050 thts in there. Live players have rly stupid reasoning for stuff its ridiculous.

Its just not worth playing live poker, £wise anyway compared to online. We went down as its Trigg's bday week and Fran, Maria and Tighty we're off. It was comedy and Trigg was on form lool. Somehow he dragged himself to take 5th, he probs cnt remember it though.

Off to the DTD £300 in a week for that blonde thing, then i'm done with live poker for a while.

Leaving the flat...

Will be moving out of our tez flat on monday, just enough time for one last brutal sunday session. Moody moved out about 2 months ago, so has just been me and rich, hes off on sunday morning, so it'l just be me left, and nothing to do but put in a mammoth session.

Have not really played this month, probs put in about 7-10 sessions so far. But had a few decent scores so still in profit about $3.6K. Had a $3.1K score for 2nd in the 30r on blonde last night and a ridic weird situation happened 3 handed:

My stack: ~200K, Btn: ~180K, SB: ~400K @ 8K/16K. I hold AKo in the BB.

Preflop: Btn raises to 48K, SB moves in, I call, Btn calls.

Btn: AA
SB: 66

Board: xxxx6.

So that 6 on the end busted us both, but i had Btn covered so I somehow come 2nd because of that 6 outer. So golden. Get it in dead but win $1.1K due to a 6 rolling off.

Want to try to get a few more sessions in before we go, but i'll probs only get in today and sunday as we have so much to do. Including cleaning, wtf is tht?

Gonna hit the DTD£300 on a freeroll on the 5th from tht blonde thing. Probs run bad though, live poker sucks.

My life has no structure atm, probably won't until october when im back at uni. Our flat contract expires at the end on June and as we don't move into the new place until August 1st i'll have to go back to Stutton for a month which means i'll probs have more normal sleeping hours.

First off, may ended like a dream with winning the $44 6max on stars for like $1.3K. Had been staking Rich to random tournies for a few days then started staking him exclusively to $11 and $4 180 seaters on stars. He worked off all his make up through them and made about $800 for us to chop. Then on the 31st i randomly offered to stake him into the $16.50 NL MSOP#2 when i saw it was like 15diiimes for the win. He managed to come 3rd for a further $7K for us to chop. Which was amazingly sick.

And after a small score in the $55 6max for like $900 or something May was over. My most successful month ever to the tune of just shy of +$25K.

Now to June, as my sleep patterns been amazingly messed up i've been grinding the 1am-6:30am starts on Stars and Tilt. Managed a score in the 17K on tilt the other night which was $4K ftw. I ran absolutely amazingly on the final its safe to say, and ended in me jamming 46d HU having him well covered, he snapped with 99 and it rolled off 235r which was a pretty good flop.

I'm supposed to be off to DTD later for the £330, but its 5:26am and i've been up since midnight. So looks doubtful, plus sledge has bailed so flying solo will be kind of a beat. Oh yeah and live poker sucks which is a further beat.

Probs gonna grind all the time in June and basically have a month off in July to see my neglected non-poker mates who will be back from uni.
hmmmmm just been mulling over what to do later, might go to bed @ like 12-6 then come down. But then i just saw they have a £200 1 dayer on sunday @ 5pm which is 7.5K and 30mins so might just go down for that. So much easier as its a 1 dayer. Probs will do that, try get Rich, Brent or Sledge to come with too.

Later wigga's.
