well it by far the most frustrating weekend of my poker life thus far.
i played under the name salfi as i have no id under my new name .
the trip to ukipt nottingham was great to see. 1k runners for a donkament fetching 109k ftw.
i bought in late and missed most of the 1st level because it was a sell out so i was 32nd on the alternative list. already three people had been stacked at my 1st table so i was thinking yum yum gambling table.
i seam to run hands into hands quite a bit and somehow not manage to lose too many chips.was gettin some thin value bets paid of to keep me round starting stack and that was not too shabby with the hand into hands always going the wrong way.
was little gash that it was all ten handed play but i guess that means u can sit back and work out whats going on perfectly. (day 2 was 8handed tables i hurd so prob the perfect structure if ucan get deep cause u can get vrooom vrooom mode and really destroy live tourneys shorter handed)
anyway i never got past day 1 when i called of 60 bigs with just one pair. was an awful spot really and i got the feeling the guy wanted me to fold so i call . he says to me didnt want u drawing so thats why he shoved 2.5 x pot on the turn. i kind of knew he would have somet when he shoves but i was kind of better then 85percent of his range . in this spot he out kickered me so i was kinda miffed . was so gash cause its the worst way to go out of a tourney , losing to some spak and somehow gettin it in bad. very rarely happens vs clowns tbh cause in decent structure u just get chips and open open open and watch them make terrible peeling choices or just spak with redic bet sizing or the other million spakky things they do..
anyway happy with how it went so cant complain. was incred value and results aside it was great value and if i played that everyday ide be very rich . got to play with patonius2000 but he had already been raped by time i got there by some aggro spakky woman who blew up spectacularly soon after with her massive stack of chips.
sat round had a pint after and chilled before coming home. didnt bother with any side events or cash(played maybe 1 orbit cash but couldnt be arsed)
my horse managed to bubble teh event when he ran stack into stack qq into ak on bubble
he got going and into his stride even holding cl at one point and im glad he enjoyed the experience(shout out to jonesy87shef who is going to quit his job very soon and grind for a living). sometimes just playin great is the only comfort we can take. i take great comfort in how i play live poker i really feel im ready to explode somehow and bink bink bink all kinds .its going to be incred when i get a roll and can play all this live bs without having to cherry pick events that are close or mega value
last night went to play locally at casino with the worlds biggest poker whale.
ide post teh hnds but im still in shock. he basically wil call atc for any amount of money preflop. he folds no pair post flop . somehow i managed to lose 10 buyins ish.
good day i walk away from that game with a wheel barrow. last night i walked home shirtless.
villain is some dubai millionaire in england to learn english language. he really loves gambling and is teh casinos best customer he gets everything he wants. he gets drinks in for the whole table and he pays nothing (casinos does anything and everything to keep him happy). he the greatest gift to me ever but dropping all i had on me yesterday hurt and i really couldnt afford to reload .
so as i get closer to busto i keep the faith and wil have to go back to lower stakes as my make up deal has been frozen for teh time been. the stable boss has taken some beats of late and as im the least deddictaed horse im first for the freeze. its cool though im good friends with the guy and i understand his situation. he has some grinders who he needs to stay rolled up for who bang volume in .
anyway im happy with the performance of all ive been doin and i can justify with all the people i surround myself with my game and the things ive been doing.
my live game has a
extra things in because my physical reads are good when im in the zone. not like it matters when the cards are stacked against u .
anyway super happy super confident somehow and life is good. really shouldnt be but for whatever reason i feel on top of the world today.
