blonde Bash 3

rhowena, Sun, 10/09/2006 - 4:02pm
I have retired early from the Bash today feeling pretty done in from the week’s events. However, Saturday evening was a most enjoyable evening indeed. I was very pleased to see how much the community had grown. After busting out of the comp about half way along, I played my first heads up match against the 'inthebelly' team for the 'girlie' t...

Take A Chance With Equal Chance

snoopy, Fri, 08/09/2006 - 3:20am
This week I made my debut in the fantastic Equal Chance Club in Walthamstow. This is what poker’s about. Forget your roulette wheels, pricey bar, uninterested casino staff and corporate heads, and so on, the future lies in the social clubs, not the casinos, well, I can only hope so anyway…

High Hopes & Hectic Days

rhowena, Thu, 07/09/2006 - 8:32pm
It's been quite a busy week for me this past week, with Bolton Poker Extravaganza last weekend, it looked like a promising turn around for Dave who made it into day two. I thought at long last he would be making an appearance on Poker 425, but it was not to be. He busted out shortly after I arrived. But another blonde made it to the final table, Mr...

They Were Singing About Me!

 Had a mare online last Monday, played poorly and fully deserved to finish the night several hundred down. However, as Chumbawumba once said, and I quote, “I get knocked down, but I get up again, you’re never gonna keep me down” (boy, move over Socrates). And I did indeed get back up again! After sensibly cashing out my profi...

In And Out

 After looking forward to the GSOP (Gut Shot Series of Poker) Main Event all week, I am more than disappointed to report that I failed to last more than two levels.

Basic Instinct

TightEnd, Thu, 24/08/2006 - 4:50pm
 A really strange thing happened in my last major live tournaments. I began to completely distrust my reads, ignore my first instincts and began to feel that everyone must be 'at it'. As a result I ended up donking off chips with marginal calls of value bets and generally felt very dissatisfied that I was getting things so wrong.

A Satisfying Week

snoopy, Mon, 21/08/2006 - 10:14pm
After focusing my attentions on online poker, I've finished the week 3.5k up, which makes me feel pretty satisfied with my perfomance, especially considering this is the first time in a long time that I've attacked the $4/2 table. However, I know how quickly it can change, and I'm also aware that hands like the one below could, next time, not work ...

Another Rollercoaster Ride

snoopy, Sat, 19/08/2006 - 5:40pm
 As I’m sure I mentioned in an earlier entry, I decided in Vegas that I’d make more of an effort to acutally play poker on my return. Whilst I played a £100 Freezout at Luton last week, I have predominantly maintained that pact by playing online cash, virtually every night!

Riding The Storm

snoopy, Wed, 16/08/2006 - 9:20pm
After a heavy but ultimately satisfying stint in Vegas, I returned home with the will to actually play some poker instead of watching it and, seeing as the laptop was booted up and raring to go, I decided that it was about time I earned a few virtual bucks. Multis have never been my strength, so it was straight into the cash game. At first, I playe...

Method or Madness?

TightEnd, Tue, 15/08/2006 - 10:10pm
In normal circumstances, having just completed a week of festival poker on my home stomping ground I would expect to give you a comprehensive account of the highs and lows of the week leading up to a glorious finale with a cash in the Main Event or, knowing me, a gallant bubble! However, my play last week alternated between the terrible and the lud...
