London Adventures

rhowena, Thu, 05/10/2006 - 7:15pm
Having had Saturday off out of my weekend I decided to call up a girlfriend and check out the cool bars in London. On recommendation we wondered along to the Ice Bar just off Regent Street. Here we were wondering why it was called the Ice Bar as we enjoyed a cocktail or two at almost £10 a go in the upstairs lounge. We were then cal...

Back On Track

 Sometimes when you feel low, playing poorly and losing money, it’s hard to get back into the groove, but this week I have been more determined than ever to stop the rot. I have suffered knocks before, but always come back twice as strong – this time proved no different.

Down But Not Out

 The time is now 11.47 am. I’ve been playing online since 3am, so that’s well over 7 hours in total. I’m pretty demorlaised. I was 800 up at one point, but through a combination of fatigue and bad decisions on vital pots, I lost that 800 pretty swiftly.

Bruised & Battered

 I’m in sombre mood today. Sometimes the game and everything surrounding it can really bring you down, and this week has been one of those times.

Garlic Bread

 I was chuntering on about something the other day; and Mrs Red was humouring me as usual. She is used to listening to my regular list of rants. Loan adverts, loud music in shops and restaurants, junk mail, un-openable food wrapping, Doctor’s receptionists, ‘new’ jeans that are more expensive because they are already almost w...

Sun, Sea & Poker

rhowena, Thu, 21/09/2006 - 9:57pm
Last Friday I was setting off from Birmingham with Bikini in my bag for the sunny seaside beach located conveniently right in front of the Casino de Barcelona. On arrival at the Casino I was pleased to see many of the top European pros and of course the famous Phil Ivey from the good old US of A. Marc 'Mr Cool' Goodwin was as ever full of impressiv...

he’s human! During the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E Event final (which included similarly familiar names such as Brunson, Reese, Bloch, Betchel and Cloutier), Phil Ivey raced out to the hotdog stand and queued with us mere mortals. To see someone as renowned an...

 It’s been over a month since my return and, with what could easily show the transparencies in my shambolic writing style (although my fingers remain crossed for something brisk, fun and entertaining), I hereby present to you my…

A Tough But Rewarding Week

snoopy, Sun, 17/09/2006 - 6:48pm
It's been a tough, but rewarding week in which I spent most of my time in the Casino Barcelona in, yep, you guessed it... Baaaaaaaaaaaarcelona!This isn't my first visit though - when I was 17, I won a scholarship to study the magnificent architecture of Anotnio Gaudi, an absolute treat at the time for someone keen on the arts. On this occasion, how...
