Molly's 8 now (9 next month!) the years fly by.

The brood now also includes Mark (5) and my partner's child Ben (6)
They all get on well together - we merged families a few years ago when they were much younger.

I'm enjoying the real life grind. Think I'm a much less caustic chap now I don't play the computer pokers 14 hours a day. Some folk are able to do it as a hobby and stay balanced, not me unfortunately. I'm an all or nothing personality. 'All' meant bad times so it's had to be nothing. Don't miss the poker but do miss the people.

Agreed, sad circumstances. Happy to gaze upon the wonder that is the moustache in your avatar picture again though Mr Mcready. Been a few years since I've seen your handsome mug in that little box.

I hope you and yours are faring well.

Being full of red bull and less than premium microwaveable meals while navigating the bubble of your 240th tournament of the session. Needing a cash to to secure a profit on the day that's higher than $1,000 - an arbitary figure to which you've attached a mystical importance.

Controversially, I may have used my one time token there.

We raised over £1k, but gave it to P4C who turned out to be a less than efficient charity. But they would have been an even less efficient charity had we not raised that grand so hey-ho.

Was a good night anyway.

Someone told me to come post and say hi.

All going well, just I don't do the pokers any more and haven't for a while.
I'm an all or nothing sort of chap rather than a dabbler. Poker has historically distracted me from other priorities so I leave it well alone now. No disrespect to you fine folks here.

February 2010 I was standing at the bus stop on the strand having lost all my money in the Empire, I was broke; I didn't have enough money in my pocket to get myself a drink from the 24 hour Spar shop.  
A beggar walked past and asked me if I could spare some change. I couldn't even reply! spare some change? how was I to tell this man that I didn't have enough change to get myself water from the shop. I got onto the bus  and realized that my bus pass had expired, I flashed it at the driver and held my breathe, luckily for me it was a busy night and he didn’t realize.  On the long journey home to crystal palace I started thinking about my life, I started day dreaming and nearly missed my stop.  I arrived home made myself some breakfast ate and went straight to sleep.  I slept for two days, I was depressed I felt down.  
"When a man is at his lowest his brain is not rational, I started thinking of all sorts of negative things, all sorts of things that I would never have thought if I hadn’t have gone to the Empire 2 days prior"

That's when I remembered DTD I felt a good vibe when I was in Nottingham and London had nothing more from me I was 53 years old and I had nothing, my record business had gone down and left me poking around for scraps.  I wasn’t ready to give up.  I sold some of my old stuff and got some money together.

It was a Thursday, early 2010 I caught the train to Nottingham and called my friend I had a suitcase and £200 in my pocket, my friend met me at the station and we caught the bus to his house. I told him I was moving to Notts and needed somewhere to stay until I could find a place. He said I could stay at his for a couple of weeks. When I told him I was moving to Nottingham to play poker he thought I was crazy.

We got to his house at around 6 I dropped my stuff off and asked how I could get to DTD he called one of his mates who dropped me off.  I remember walking through the doors of DTD that day knowing this was my last Shot, this was it! It was make or break! I’d never left London in my life, my family thought I was crazy, if I failed I would be ridiculed by friends and family, I couldn’t afford to lose this was it…

Next post will be how I became Rastafish

Reads like an 'I have a place to live and ingredients for breakfast' brag post

Wishing you well dude, onwards and onwards.

For those that don't read everything -

why are Dunfermline & Dundee mentioned separately?

ta

I assume it's because in the event of The Rangers not being voted into the SPL on July 4th as Team 12 there would be an empty slot in the SPL.

Dunfermline (the team relegated from the SPL last season) and Dundee (the team who last season finished second in the first division) are the two natural candidates to fill that spot.

I think which one it would be is a 'we'll cross that bridge when we come to it' question but at the moment both may have a particular interest in the SPL voting not to allow The Rangers entry into the SPL.

Great day of golf to watch, but paying for it now. Could really do with a nap.

I can't get my head round why oldco Rangers have a vote alongside the existing 11 clubs on whether to let newco Rangers straight into the SPL. It's all a bit yucky.

Hopefully Aberdeen vote the right way thanks to fan pressure and enough other clubs follow suit.

Line judge pursuing a police complaint against Nalbandian

Begs the question how many more players on the tour are just pretending to be professional tennis players and their real agenda is they want to kick line judges.
