Poker Ambitions?

Favourite poker player you play with?

Ever had any tilting problems/ blow ups at the table?

Poker Ambitions?

Ever had any tilting problems/ blow ups at the table?

Hmm... I guess I'll have to humour you here, won't I? I have no idea where the inspiration for these questions has come from...

Poker ambitions... Well, I'm not as good at setting targets as I should be, that's for sure. Long term, really all I would like to aim for is to be able to make a living from poker, whether that be live, online or a mixture of both. More specifically, this year I would like to play every stop of the GPS, and put in a significant amount of volume online in BOTH Hold 'em and Omaha. I'm really enjoying a bit of Omaha at the moment, and am finding learning this game very interesting. Not yet particularly profitable, I hasten to add, but good fun all the same :p

Favourite player to play with? In what sense, exactly? If you mean play poker with, tbh there are way too many heroes to list. Rest assured that you'd be near the top of the list, although I won't elaborate on why Wink

This is definitely a loaded question :p Again, I'll humour it, this time with a story from the early days of my time as a reg at the local pubs' weekly comps. I'm not 100% sure of the HH, but I think I three bet AK and got cold called by the BB with Qxss, I flopped a K, and he called the flop with backdoor spades, turned a flush draw and called my shove, only to river the bastard. I got up, walked out (and not quietly, I might add) and for some little known reason decided to throw my keys to floor in the alley on the way to the car park. The run bad continued, since my keys broke upon hitting the pavement (ford car keys seem to do be designed to do this and be put back together, no idea why). I then had to make my way back inside, and rather embarrassingly ask the barman if he had a torch to help find the keys. To add to the embarassment, the tournament was on a break, so everyone decided to come out and help. I don't think I'm ever going to be aloud to forget that little episode :p DISCLAIMER: I'm SLIGHTLY less of a tit nowadays :p

I honestly don't know how many I've won, and that's not a brag, just a general thing. I haven't won anything major, for sure, apart from that 2/7 sd online comp that I chopped for a tenner once.

haha great responses rexas as per usual!

what the millions of readers of this blog don't realise is the time and effort some of us have put in being your councellor. car journeys home listening to you moan about how bad you run to only come 2nd in a deep stack, and only cashed out 2bags and not 3is quite disheartening for a 'lol' (as tomson so eloquently puts in) reg licking his wounds after a brutal, near bankrupting XXL where we were forced into using our reload card Wink thank god for biggest winner buying macdonalds eh? the tilt isnt needed!! less of a tit however? incorrect.
hmm seems to me that the 2/7 chopped tourny for 11 dollars is a #thinbrag. im assuming BRM was at the heart of this decision?
few blogs have recently spoke about fancy clothing being worn at the table, have you ever been seen sporting anything outrageous, skirts or headwear for example?

few more questions...
nandos order?
side youd pick to play with on FIFA?
live with/civil union with/play HU4ROLLZZZ : Rehman, Sean Belton, Tomson346432456  ??
when am i going to get the fulltime job of being your PR/marketing man?

I've never forgotten your tilt monster rage with about 15 players left of feb's deep stack when the crazy Asian guy jammed 55 in sb and you called with QQ in bb only for the flop to produce the 5. Haha you was chuntering on for about 10 mins after that talking about life changing money or something hahaha fun to watch I might add Wink

Nandos is currently a medium half chicken with chips, spicy rice and halloumi. Discovered halloumi whilst on holiday in cyprus and can't get enough of the stuff.

Fifa side... I don't really know, I'm leaning towards either Chelsea or Belgium at the moment, although the latter is mainly because their kit must be the best looking in the game,

Erm... what?

And never, because you're currently doing a fine job of making me look like a massive tilt monkey, which I'm definitely not anywhere near as much as I used to be :p
