Xmas Update

Large amounts of retardation at the tables this time of year. Ship the 10 buyins so far today. Hopefully I'm not done as should be quite juicy later tonight.

EDIT: Ship the 15 buyins :-)

Pokerwise December has gone well. I updated my thread at the NPF a few days ago, check here for some meaningful poker content. So apart from the slight mishap at NL100, it's going well and since last updating I'm probably looking at ~£1k profits thus far, with about that again in bonus & rb. I'm sure I can add a decent amount to that before 2010 comes around :-)

Merry Christmas everyone :-)

Poker Blog

OK thinly disguised digs and jokey posts aside, it's time to publish some poker content.

I've been partaking in a small stakes challenge this month on the NPF. All the details are in my thread, here. As you can see I've semi-regularly updated it and hence haven't been updating the blog when I really should have been. Cross post:

OK can't be chewed with SSs at this hour so I'm gonna just type up from HEM.

So far I have played a little over 11k hands at NL20 for €160, which is 7bb/100. Preflop stats are 24/20 with 7% 3b.

Since I made the big adjustments on the 2nd Dec I have actually crushed for 21bb/100. I also upped the # tables yesterday as I believe playing more tables at NL20 pushes my game into the more optimum zone... ie not getting bored and trying to win a random big pot.

My plan was to get to over 10k hands at NL20, and post results showing >5bb winrate. Mission accomplished there. Next step was up to NL50 and hopefully post the same, but most likely a much larger sample. I only wanted to play NL20 for the first week. In two minds now as it's definitely possible to crush this level. I'll start table selecting pretty hard at NL20/50 and take it from there :)

Aside from the mirco stakes cash play, I've occassionaly ground out the Super Turbos on FTP (currently at 20% roi), and this evening played an MTT session of a few hours, losing a small amount. I final tabled two $6 90 Man tournies but only managed 5th and 7th, not winning a single all in on both final tables (all AQ+, 99+)

Enjoying the change of pace so far but I've been quite lazy so far logging only 25 hours, but doing OKish at around £9 p/h :-S Looking to play a lot this week before I do a huge amount of driving this weekend down to Bristol, then up to Leeds then back up here in the space of a few days. Please car don't die!

United Fourth XI Ease Past Woeful Spurs

Manchester United Fourth XI 2 - 0 Tottenham Shitspurs

Two nice goals from Darron Gibson who incidentally has the greatest long range shot in the world. Yes better than Ronaldo. I told you!

That is all :-)
