Ohh my days!

What has pokerstars had on the tables for us today...
Send PM

Welcome - it's just gone midnight and I'm sitting at the rig, waiting for the freerolls at 2am. That's both the Pokerstars 100k depositor freeroll and the Pokerschool Open Skill League.




The last freeroll I played last night, is blogged and I managed a 130th finish. I wasn't overly happy with my last hand but, was overall happy with how I played upto that final hand.

I really have to work on getting the mistakes out of my game.

Avoiding cash games until I hopefully have a few more dollars and cents to play with.

Sticking to a basic plan of improving my rank in the Open League.

sitting at 9605 as I type so, if I can manage a decent result or two today, I hope to just keep improving this and stacking anything I can into the cashier from freerolls...poor lil ol' me...

I seem to do ok in tournies, but my open cash tables game is ..... needs work, lets put it that way....anyone willing to help or comment, please do!!


Registered and ready to felt people..........or be felted hehe

Trying a less coffee induced high and a more water induced need for the bathroom.

Ultimately the aim is to make it into a paid spot with some chips from the 82o donks...

No heroics here, just solid tight poker, that wins chips.

Pair with a scare:

Just need info on that board, takin it down early never hurts.

Out of the 100k freeroll, played AQo and JJ hit quads, nice

Concentrating more on the Skill league now tho....I don't seem to multi table too well yet, reading all the tables, moves and people isn't a strength at all for me.

Took a punt, and that amazing outter clips us off on the river...ouch...a change of luck may come one day....he had a 50+ vpip and well, from the call you can see...did I say anything about the 'non' cards at pokerstars? 


So I was sitting waiting for stuff and decided to jump in the 50c+05c turbo with $500gtd.

It was 50mins in and manged to catch an early hand...


Have made it to paid, so not a bad result, going to try and make the final few, but not a great stack.

At the break I am in 24th after that little nugget!

If I can maintain a good position I'll be happy. Only 123 players left now.


Last 85, not messing about with any slow plays now.

Couple of big ones:

In to 8th with those...

possible mistake:

get some back:

Final hand:

Coin toss and out... see's 39th position and a small increase at the cashier.

Sorry I haven't really added my comments to these hands, I was deep in concentration and it was bad enough, copy and pasting all the hands in here as it went....trying to watch the action too...I will review the hands and if I remember I'll try to add some comments here

Gotta pop to the shop for breakfast and supplies....will be back to blog more as it comes up.

yum yum, a nice breakfast Samosa and crisps (or chips to you Americans) - staple breakfast for any aspiring poker player.

But am back just in time for the 6am Pokerschool Open skill league and my goal of improving the rank. currently showing 9834

As 9s beaten by the AKo - out, not very tight hehehe.

There is a The Big $3.30 [$6k Gtd] I have been watching and considering investing the cashier into, but, sure way to blow off bankroll again.

The site online number (65k), it being 6am here for me, I think I'll take a break until later on. This time for me, I tend to find is the hardcore grinders who are going to be VERY good....not many donks up playing at 6am as there is during prime times.

Maybe the 9am 100K Depositor Freeroll again.

Making like a tree, and leaving....for a bit...



That was a long bit....I didn't play today...well I sneaked into the 8pm freeroll about 15mins after it started, played some stinkers that won and held on in to a paid position, 20c woot woot...

The cashier was almost at $5 - and with lots online I stupidly went to zoom worst enemy it seems! Managed to lose the $2 I staked....and, I am regged in the Pokerschool open league but I can sense a sit-out and a decent nights sleep for a change....ohh what and exciting saturday night lol!

Sure I'll blog some more in the next day or so...

Make every day, better than the last.
