They Were Singing About Me!

snoopy, Thu, 31/08/2006 - 5:41am
 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.

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...

Tired Of Being Tired

 The Beagle Bulletin tired of being tired  It’s approaching Midnight and I’m on my way up to the Rio’s spectacular Voodoo Lounge (a location which relies on nothing more than the magnificent Las Vegas skyline view – it really doesn’t require anything else).

The End Of A Line

booze, strippers & a 'house of cards'

The Beagle BulletinBooze, Stippers & A 'House Of Cards' Well, that about sums up last Wednesday night. In what ultimately turned out to be a rather eye-opening evening, your trusted blonde team decided to temporarily hang up their updating boots, throw back their hair and treat themselves to a long awaited night of fun.

My First Ever WSOP Event

The Beagle Bulletin my first ever wsop event Yesterday, I played in my first ever World Series’ Event – the $1,500 No Limit Hold ‘Em Freezout. With just $1,500 in chips, these Events aren’t renowned for having the best structure (the more shrewd players tend to wander down to the Bellagio or Wynn instead), ...

A Change Of Scenery

 The Beagle Bulletin a change of scenery -- The Orleans -- A couple of days ago, Jen and I moved from the lovely Can Cun resort into the more gambling orientated Orleans Hotel. Compared to the rather garish sights of the Rio, I quite like this place. It’s full of bright flashing lights, but it’s not over the top and there seems to ...
