Corbyn may have made a clanger asking about the "working man on 25k a year, struggling to feed his 5 children"?

Of course he is struggling. He has 5 children.

Tiger question was just awful timing for Cameron. Hilarious though. Who needs satire?

What was the turn/next action?
Let's hope there is no turn. It's gonna be even harder to work out. Fold and find a better spot?

Gotta love blonde PHA. It is a really good read and will make you think about certain decisions in a different way.

I wonder how many 50 pences would be in the pot now?

I have only had Netflix for a month and watched the whole 8 series of House.

Now it's finished I feel a bit lost. My Mrs could not believe I was balling at the end.

Your opponents flop re-raise is just weird. She must be a right punter. Limped pots are nearly impossible anyway and I don't think you did a lot wrong here.

QTss or some combo is what it looks like. Never putting a live player on top 2 or a set here are we?

What do other people think? This diary is over a thousand pages and full of great advice from day 1 from blondes from all walks of life. Without this diary I would never have got staked initially as quickly as I did so it's all thanks to this really. Would be good to hear people's thoughts 4 years on.
BoB for me.

I read a lot of poker stuff on the web. Some of the advice you can get on Blonde is just top class, and there is loads in this thread. All the great blogs, no matter what level the player is, are by people who write well. If you enjoy writing then try that as a career. Tony Holden, Vicky Coren and even the greatest, Herbert Yardley seemed to have had a lot of fun in their life's.

Biggest level since the Cottingley Fairies. No way you believe what you're writing, arbboy. If you tried submitting it for the plot of Ocean's Fourteen, they'd laugh you out of Hollywood.

Agreed i am not saying this is the reality but a really savvy legal team for a top class casino could easily pull off this risk free coup if the upside was suitably large enough.  Plus imagine the dent to Ivey's ego if he ever found out that he got levelled in this way by a casino when he thought he was pulling off a monster coup.
Well that would pretty high levelling. This is all in hindsight remember?

The most important factor of the whole thing is, as you are saying, is the precedent this ruling may have?

The U.K. Will have the most regulated gambling market in the world in 2 months with many country's looking at how it has happened and trying to replicate it. I think this ruling against Ivey is wrong. GC license states you must operate in fair and open manner and the operator has. The punter has not, I agree, but should be paid.

This ruling says "Come to the UK and punt but please don't win"!

Our chance of being the Las Vegas of the internet has now fkd off for good.

Does anyone agree that it would look more shady if he never sued them?

At least this way, win or lose, he has been transparent in explaining his strategy and will walk away from this with his reputation intact. The book or film royalties could be worth more anyway.

Ryder cup app is pretty cool this time around. Live radio from practice rounds all day today and cool guests. Loads of video clips too.

The middle week is probably reg infested anyway, not the worst to miss out on.

The best bet is to buy them yourselves and fit which will cost about 5 k. Some mortgage lenders will not get involved with contracted houses with panels which is usually the free ones. This depends on the deal you sign but get some legal advice on that.

If you fit your own it actually adds the value straight on the property. You can get loans from the banks for this too and your savings go toward the loan repayment. My sister in law had to reduce her house price by 8 k because they signed a bad deal on panels.

Swaps means drunken rails on final tables.

There's quite a hierarchy for it. Some people take great pride in their seniority, but others just say that's swan upmanship.
Very nice.

Well I couldn't put any one on that unless your image is hyper loon bag, but she now has next best to a set so her 40 k seems perfect. 50p
