Most importantly worthy of a diary post is that I've handed in my notice (1 month) at work, had enough now.

Definitely a most excellent shenanigan!

Gl me whatever I pursue next.

GL GL! Professional shenanigans for a living FTW  thumbs up

well in my opinion it is bad, i see what your saying but if two guys are putting there chips in the middle at that stage then your 77 is just no good simples but we all have that decision to make at some point, and i understand he's also got chips already in, but... let it go. thats what his game was about though, he did these plays for the thrill i think

speaking my mind

spoke to him on the breaks and seemed a nice enough guy sinking those red bulls and running around 
but on the table was somehow different and i know a few players next to me told me the same, he came across arrogant and a little bit ego, all wanting him to secretly crash out lol (can i say this lol ), I KNOW PEOPLE WANTED THAT lol.
but still he was ONE of the most fun entertaining players there in final 25 i thought, crazy donk play at times but if it was all abc how boring would it be


Looking back the 77 hand, yes it was a fold all day long, but i had my reasons and justifications to why I called the two shoves, along with all my plays during the day. Assuming I did the plays for a ''thrill'' is totally wrong. Dont get me wrong i'm an inexperienced tournament player with a lot to learn especially in the final stages of the game. Again my ''crazy donk play'' were all justified in my head and I got it wrong, we all make mistakes, just depends how costly that mistake is. There was a few mistakes made by myself in the final stages, I was very exhausted and to be fair my head was battered. Coming across as slightly ego and arrogant is all part of my game but at the same time im all for banter and having a laugh.

And ABC poker is boring, you want to see 4betting, triple barrelling etc etc. You dont wana see AA v KK every hand all in pre. It gets tedious. Pokers meant to be fun, but each to their own.

Well played to everyone by the way.



I don't think you need to justify yourself in the slightest mate. Let's face it, 8th is a pretty awesome result and you must've got a lot more right over the weekend than you got wrong.

I've also got to agree with Hotdog that you certainly livened up our table on day 1 (I think I even told you something along those lines at the time) and I for one enjoyed every minute of it. I'd rather play with a James Rowney over a monosyllabic automaton any day of the week.

Vive la différence, congratulations on the great score (the first of many I'm sure) and welcome to Blonde.

Thanks again for the posts of encouragement and advise.

I am in the process of getting "The Mental Game of Poker" on the mrs Kindle...

I dont read a great deal other than the paper and the odd sports magazine so this will be a bit of a challenge on its own but im hoping that the information in here grabs me and keeps me interested to read it from cover to cover.

The last book I read was "The Big Miss" Hank Haneys story about his time as Tiger Woods coach, a really good book that had me in awe of how much of a winner that Tiger Woods is and was. He was so determined and driven from such a young age its frightening.

Anyway im going a bit off topic, im hoping that this book will help me deal with variance and my mental side of the game lately where I have been becoming increasingly frustrated with how the sessions have been going and that I cant seem to stick 2 good sessions in back to back... Very much a yo yo over the last 5-600 games.

 

Really enjoying your diary chelseaboy, please keep the updates coming. If you do find the print version a little heavy going you might want to consider the audio version. As far as I know (possibly Barry Carter can confirm or deny this) you can still get a totally free download of it here:

http://jaredtendlerpoker.com/mental-game-of-poker/free-copy-of-tmgp-audiobook/

I got a copy (as well as buying the Kindle version) and it was easy, no strings attached. I just pop it on when I'm at work or driving and is a fantastic listen. Also, if you're working on your mindset you might want to have a look at Nick Wealthall's "Winning Poker Blueprint" which I also found to be a great value for money investment and has helped me immeasurably. A quick Google will find it. I hope you find some of it helpful but again, good thread chap!

Any idea how Callum McCuaig's going please Tighty? Also, I don't suppose the one remaining anonymous is Mo Fassil by any chance?

Any chance of an update on Ceri Rees please Tighty? There's certainly never a dull moment when he's about. He had the table in stitches last night Cheesy

Sterling effort again on the updates as usual!
