Went to spain for a week to our villa and got back 4 days ago. The golf courses are in such sick condition, its like playing off carpet, awesome stuff. Got my game kindof back while there, carded a 13 over 85 round La Finca by the last day. Prob gonna join @ Cookridge Hall next week when we're moved in and start playing competitively again.

First day back looked potentially sick. Finalled the ipoker 50r, party 20r and ipoker 25r 6mx. But 2 4th's in the smaller ones and a 9th in the 50r resulted in like $3K in cashes and a +$1500 day. Could have been much sicker but nevermind.

The next day was a nightmare but managed to get out with a $1300 cash in the tilt 15K and a $500 cash in the pty super 162 for like 10th or summit.

Day 3 was a huge slowroll day, i built stacks in tonnes of stuff but ran real bad deep and whifffed every torny except a default $150 cash for the ipoker 30r that got cancelled. Tilt hit the midnights-130's to get out, so made the days investment bigger and a -$1850 day. So we'r marginally down from returning from holiday.

This weekend sees the DTD£300 return, theres quite a crowd going down, Me and my faithful stable Horneris and ChipRich, 1time boys. Aswell as Hitthehole, Claretcougar and TheClaimer,[ ] gl to those guys. Prob lose £990 tho, hopefully we can a day 2 sweat.

Got a good story to show how much a degen fk Horneris is. I bank shipped him £330 so he could buy himself in online for the DTD300. 10 mins later he goes fk, i've just lost ur £330 on bfair. Hopefully he'l make it up by winning me some bags when he actually gets to the torn.

Hoping to run good online and in the DTDer so that i can hit the Luton GUKPT and a few sideys a week on saturday. As well as DTD's deepstack 2 weeks later with a £550 ME and £330 sidey.
And the big news, the flats finally sorted to go through and we'l be moved in on friday! Looking forward to shelling out a dime for a 42in tv and ps3 aswell as crucial other stuff to make it a sick pad.

Hit my first 5fig score last thursday in the ipoker 50r. Had came 23rd in it the day before and took it down on the thursday.

It was pretty useful after a bad 3/4 day spell opening July and spewing about $2K over that time. Not many interesting spots from the tournament because it was such a crapshoot and CL was at 10x the whole time. Having QQ > AK+A3 with 11 left was useful so i entered the final 1/9. Didn't get up to much until about 5 left where i got it in with A3s > TJs. Then after that it was pretty plain sailing and i started moving chips about and got HU pretty much even in chips. 800K each @ 20/40K. He kept r/f the button which abled me to get him 4:1 in chips before AJd > AQo ftw.

So after winning that i told Rich i'd put him in the DTD£300 that w/e. Met Rich at the hotel at about 3:30 and just lay around in the hotel room til about 6. The got some food and hit DTD to start crushing. Starting with 10K and 45min levels the structures perfect. I managed to spin to 21K before the end of level 1:

Stack: ~11K, MP: ~8K, LP: ~10K. I hold Qc Qd in EP.
Preflop: I raise to 150, MP flats, LP 3bets 625. Me and MP both flat.
Flop: 5c 2s 2d, I check, MP bets 1500, LP calls;

here i was like, hmmm standard live guy spew line for LP is to flat AK/AQ here. But just to check he doesn't actually have AA or KK, I'll just flat it and re-eval turn. Also c/r the flop will v likely shove everything i beat out, and get everything that has me beat re-shoving.

Turn: 9h, I check, MP shoves 5800, LP folds. LP folding made the decision easy. So course I call waiting to see some moron hand like A5o lol. He tables 77. [ ] wp sir. LP says he folded 77 too, so i have to fade the 0 outer, which i manage. So sick if LP calls/rejams his 77.

So up to 20dimes @ 25/50 life is ok. Started raising a decent% of hands pre and shelling at flops and generally maintaining my stack.

The next hand of interest i can remember is @ 200/400/50:

My stack: ~25K, MP1: ~10K, MP2: ~15K. I hold 46o in the sb.
Preflop: MP1, MP2, Btn all limp, I make up sb, bb checks.
Flop: 4s As 6d, I check, MP1 bets 1,000, MP2 flats.

MP2 is really spewy so will probs stack off an A here so i c/r to 6,500. MP1 dwell folds and MP2 rejams with 82s. I turn another 6 and its gg sir.

So up to 40K @ 200/400/50, life is still good. Then we get into a huuuuge pot @ 300/600.

My stack: ~41K, C/O: ~38K. I hold AKo on the btn.
Preflop: c/o raises to 2,400, I 3bet to 10,050 and he thinks for under 5 seconds before shoving. 3bet folding would be a huge mistake here, and we're flipping a lot here so i pretty much snap the 38K off. He tables KK. The board rolls of a cruel x-x-x-A-K. loooooool, no need for tht. but w/e gglife a 80K pot ships to him.

Photo evidence of my run badders, [X] Bad River:

Left with 3K i get it in with T4c > QJc to double but then KK guy opens utg for 3,400 @ 400/800, I jam AKo for 7,100 and MP3 cold 4bt jams for 28K. utg dwells forever and folds AKo face up. MP3 shows QQ and holds vs me.

Not done much online, blew the crypto20K with 4 left the other day. Had it won but spewed and busted in 4th for $1.5K which broke me even for the day. Off to York Races on sat, so will probs spew loads lol, hopefully i can nip Brent for tips and ship it crucial. Gonna hit this sunday hard as its dble gtd's on stars! weeee. Hopefully i'm not too fked from saturday to grind well.
