My First Taste - Part III

snoopy, Fri, 14/04/2006 - 12:15am
  Day 2 soon arrived and after a cold night in my room, which lacked soap, shower gel, and shampoo (ooh, I ask too much), I met up with Matt Tyler in the lobby to run through some of the updates. I must thank everyone for all the support you gave me throughout the night. Your good luck messages were all received loud and clear and I can’...

My First Taste - Part II

snoopy, Thu, 13/04/2006 - 8:51pm
 With 10k in chips, an hour clock, and no real maniacs in sight, the fear of an early exit didn’t linger for too long, well, except when I was dealt pocket nines first hand. (The devil on my shoulder falsely predicted the future with a nine on the flop and a big draw hitting on the river). I raised, and everyone folded. Whoever said, &ls...

My First Taste - Part I

snoopy, Tue, 11/04/2006 - 7:47pm
 Last weekend, I had the immense pleasure of experiencing my first Main Event… ever. I’ve been playing poker for over four years now, but due to a combination of updating duties, lack of time, being poor at satellites, and budgeting my bankroll, I’ve never got round to hitting the felt come the weekend of a festival. I was...

Couch Kev Causes A Rumpus - Saturday 1st April

tikay, Mon, 10/04/2006 - 6:35am
 April Fools Day, and, coincidentally, Rhow's birthday.   Forum is in great heart and mood, with one or two April Fools' thread. But the Colchester Kev Sponsored Railbird thing has everyone guessing - is it, or isn't it? I actually get 8 PM's - EIGHT - asking me if it's a wind-up!  

Disaster Strikes - Friday 31st March

tikay, Sat, 08/04/2006 - 12:30am
  I awake to find there are black feathers all over the bedroom floor, and I know straight away what's happened. Angell has killed Bertie. Bertie is in the bathroom, sans one leg, dead. Angell is laying by the body, looking as proud as punch. I am furious, and sad. No point in chastising Angell, it's an instinct thing for cats to kill birds, b...

Another Early Exit, Another Win - Thursday 30th March

tikay, Fri, 07/04/2006 - 2:32pm
Shattered today, just too tired to think. E-mails and PM's again, until 2.30pm, then I decide to play the Laddies $250. That took exactly 2 minutes. Took a flop with QJ hearts, flop was 9-T-4, two hearts. Against AA or QQ I am 55-45 fave, against KK I'm almost even money - all the chips go in, he has KK, I miss, goodbye to $250. Weirdly, my oppone...

Poker School

The Baron, Fri, 07/04/2006 - 2:18am
After travelling down to Mayfair on Wednesday I got to meet blondites Claw75, Pokerdave69, SuffolkPunch, Indestructable, Ace2M and Silo Graham and what a pleasure it was.It was a great night, not least because of the blondites and the atmosphere that seems to accompany these blonde events, but also because I was nicely surprised by Dave's talk. Rat...

Week's Events

rhowena, Thu, 06/04/2006 - 8:54pm
Well last Saturday I got another year older, up to a ripe old age of 25. Which was nice. Dave took me shopping, which was even nicer, and then we had a posh meal in the evening at a French restaurant that I can't remember the name of. Though I do remember they did lovely Champagne cocktails.... Dave and I took Sian out to the bowling alley on Mond...

Wales v U.S.A

elblondie, Thu, 06/04/2006 - 5:14pm
  Just when you think you have seen it all, the poker gods always throw up a new experience to make us smile. I had the misfortune of playing in Matchroom’s latest TV spectacle ‘Poker & Soccer Legends’. The Wales v USA match is a TV programme that you have to see to believe. There is a complete dearth of quality poker but...

425 Day, Plus Media Freeroll - Wednesday 29th March

tikay, Thu, 06/04/2006 - 12:36pm
  London today, to record 425. I adore Wedenesdys. A leisurely drive to Derby Station, peruse the rolling stock at the Railway Works - the most eclectic collection of Diesel Locos & Rolling tock in the UK I'd guess - the 12.04 slam-door to London, then the Tube across to Wapping for 2.15pm. I'm increasingly fascinated by the London Undergr...
