Am I going to play some online poker again? Well I am going to try.

To see if I have the testicular fortitude for this game, I am going to attempt to play 250 NL HU matches between now and November 30th 23:59:59.

No real bankroll goals, will be playing whatever level I have at least 25 or 30 buy-ins for, starting at $1. I will either pass with flying colours or die trying.

Money making

Poker is a game in which random Timmy Mallets can win thousands or even millions of dollars, it's a game for dreamers. If you have played any amount of poker and tell me that you haven't thought of winning that one poker tournament that changes your life by injecting millions of dollars into your life, I wouldn't believe you. Even though I play micro cash and small tournaments, I still honestly believe that I can win the WSOP main event and become Poker's next big thing. I think this is one of the things that keeps me playing poker, the chance of making it big. However if I am honest I don't give myself the chance, there must be something wrong with me. The WSOP main event is happening right now, and I never even gave myself a proper chance of qualifying. Why would some one dream of winning that big score, and then not follow through on my dream? It is one of my big flaws, I am sure I am not the only one. In my life I have slipped into being a thinker instead of a do-er. I would really suggest you don't do that. When you see that satellite, enter it, whether it be for an EPT, WPT or that online big Sunday poker tournament! You may just surprise yourself and win, that is of course part of the reason we play! I know I will be playing more satellites and trying to attain my dreams, really doing it!

Now you have taken the plunge, what do you do, you are reaching out of your comfort zone, well great! If you don't push yourself your Poker skills will stagnate and you will revert to being a poor player. It has happened to me on numerous occasions. "Clicketty, click, click" The same monotonous beat and bets. My advice to you would be just relax, play your game, but actually pay attention to everything going on, you may not win this time, but make sure you learn from your experience. Many poker players, better than you and I will have paid for their Poker education, and most likely a lot more money than a few satellite entry fees. This is one of the main reasons why the game is so accessible to people. Previous WSOP ME winners have qualified for $20 odd, and won millions! i think the way to look at it is "someone has to win it, that someone should be me!" There are THOUSANDS of online Poker satellites so get on and go for it! Next time you are watching the EPT, do not sit there and think "Oh, I could do that better than him!" Actually go and prove it!

Good luck guys!

I am an eejit

I did a very stupid thing, one thing I said I wouldn't do. I logged on to Ultimate bet while drunk, and threw away 2 buy in's. Not as large as it could have been, but I have been disappointed with myself and I had banned myself from playing, I am just about to play. Wish me luck.

First of 2009

Well, Happy new year people! Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New year, I certainly did. I obviously haven't been updating the blog, but this time I actually haven't played any poker either, been busy with festive things and such like. Other news I am going to play snooker for the first time in a few years, looking forward to it as I am playing a mate I haven't seen in a while, should be good, if not to embarrassing on the snooker front :D

Well i have played my first session of 2009, well 20 hands. The player was hugely over aggressive and paid the price. Double up
He then re-loaded for $20, played one $1 odd pot, which I won, then he left. He is definitely added to my buddy list!
Not much to report just thought I would let ALL of my avid readers, which I am sure there are many, that I am still alive :D

Also, become a follower of my blog on the left hand side!

P.S Before the xmas period I played in one of the $5.50 GGE games with Annie Duke playing, unfortunatly nothing happened. I went to the bathroom, as I was finishing up this conversation occoured...
Girlfriend: You have a hand in the poker babe!
Me: What is it?
G/f: a Jack and a ten
Me: What colour? (Easier than what suit to her)
-Short pause-
I came through from the bathroom.
Me: what suit is it?
I looked at the PC and she had thought I had told her to call when I said colour. So she had dumped most of my chips in a raised pot with JTo. Was pretty much the end of me. Think I will sit out next time I need a whizz!
