She knows how to play, she came third in a betfair promotional live tourney (200) and i thought that would do the trick but she says it's 'boring', i ask you....

I reckon i just need to win a huge tourney and give her some cash for shopping and she'll change her tune. That idea keeps me playing, see what i did there

(top pair and a flush draw or something like that 300+ hands a day and it's just a blur)

I am in Stoke so derby, manchester, wolves would be best. Notts, sheff, walsall are ok but will take a bit more travelling than ideal but for a good tourney it's not a problem.

thanks

again

excellent thanks.

Is there a game that a lot of the forum play in?

A little story of mine from the other night.

Having played 5 straight hours on line on a friday night with the missus generally whinging and moaning to the side of me i busted out of a tournament in 11th place and decided to take the missus out to save our relationship.

The hand i busted out on was rather nasty when from the big bling i flopped top two pair and a K high flush draw, i bet the pot and got called by the only player left in, the turn brings my flush and i check hoping for a steal raise on the scare card which duly arrives. I get cocky and flat call, the river brings another suited card and i check expecting the usual desperation all in which duly arrives, i call and he shows the A high flush with a rag as his kicker. GRRRRRRRR.

I get quite drunk with the missus and we have great time but i spend my whole time thinking about that stupid flat call on the turn. Later on at home whilst indulging in the post pub fumble i stop mid flow and request that she remind me to raise when i have set up a check raise opportunity. This has not gone down well at all and i have been informed it's 'the poker or me'.

Pretty straight forward option really (she's a lovely girl but seriously).  How can i keep them both? Any ideas?

thanks

Hello Alll,

I am new to the forum but have been reading for a while.

I live in the midlands and started playing poker in casinos about 8 years ago unfortunately i was permanently excluded from the local card room about five years ago for reasons i won't go into.

I don't know if a thread like this exists but could someone give me a run down on where the best live games are held inc which night, buy in, freezeout/rebuy etc i am in the middle so derby, walsall, wolverhampton, manchester, birmingham and nottingham (at a stretch) are all within range.

I am convinced i will win more if i can stare some people down!!!!!!!!

thanks
