who me ? a donkey ?

running through last nights session in my head during the day today, I thought I’d played like a right donkey. Giving it away for free sprang to mind, sigh. obv I’m at work and so had no access to hand history.

its been bugging me so i had to check …. did I give it away for free ?

worst hand …. it all goes in the middle when I flop a set, she has top two and a straight redraw …. she rivers the straight redraw, sigh …. $6 in the red on that one, bollox.

best hand …. I flop the nut low and nut flush redraw .. all the money goes in .. eek, a $52 pot … we both turn the nut low but I river the nut flush …. serves him right, with his fucking AA, lol

lets see. I was +$7 at 5c/10c …. +$5 at 25c/50c (lol) …. breakeven at 1c/2c (sigh) …. -$5 at 10c/25c ….

err, wtf ?? thats +$7 …. which my bankroll agrees with …. so where the fuck is my $50 bonus ????

arrrrgggghhhh ! what a fucking donkey I am, lmfao …. you have to purchase the bonus for 1fpp before its added to you balance, hee-haw hee-haw !!

so, basically I gave myself a hard time today because I thought I’d lost a boat load last night, when I was, in fact, in profit all along. what a cock ! what a fucking cock !

no wonder I could not for the life of me remember that monster losing hand …. omfg, sometimes I am such a fucking retard …. in fact, I dont think I’ll play poker anymore, sigh, now where are my crayons ….

yes you. grinding.

finally managed a monster session the other night. a very credible 1900 hands .. no mean feat when playing pl08b and not having the ability to 42 table ! the whole point is, of course, the quest for vpp’s to bag the yearly $50 bonus. I have played these sessions before and although accumulating vpp’s I’ve dropped some $$ in the process. This time everything went in my favour, including adding $16 to the bankroll. Most importantly, I added 110 vpp’s which brings the bonus one step closer.

as I’ve said before, playing forum games destroys the quest for vpp’s. I am nowhere near good enough to mix up games while multitabling, add in being on the forum radio and I’m afraid its one game only for me ! Last night was 8-game (love it) and I was co-commentating, generally a recipe for disaster !

Actually did very well, making the final table and grabbing 3rd for a wee profit. The heads-up between Zat and Thierry was awesome, lasting something close to an hour. In the end, we were on the air for almost 5hrs !!

I did manage a few hundred hands of Omaha pre forum game, so last night was good for $13 and 20vpp’s. you know, I might just bag the yearly bonus after all.

who me ? grinding ?

tough month ahead. need 700vpp’s to blag a $50 bonus. I’ll give it a shot but its a tough one, considering i waste most of my time at 1c/2c !

another reason i take my eye off the ball, so to speak, is the forum games this month, which feature an unusually rich content of non-nlhe games …. destroys my grinding ability for that evening, but i enjoy playing them.

thought I’d managed a monster session last night but was somewhat disappointed that i “only” managed 966 hands …. not actually that bad considering i played a forum game before settling down at the cash tables …. added $11 to the bank, which is almost twice as much as my nearest rival for the session, according to the stats. more importantly, i added 30vpp’s to my total. every little helps !

worst hand ….

my A23T  v  A235 …. split low, he binked a straight for high, pfffft

best hand ….

my A22J  v  A368 (??) …. I bink quads, but only a shortstack follows, pfffft

the board ran out 2J927 .. and he bets into me on every street ?? go figure.

tonight’s game is a $1 credit crunch … and yes, I’ll be there, destroying my vpp quest 😦 and I bet you lot don’t even appreciate my selfless sacrifice ! lmfao
