A little break

Well, things went from bad to worse, lol. On nightshift for the next four nights so will do me good to have a break and come back for March. Have been advised to drop down stakes, problem is I have no respect for the low stakes games :-(. I don't think I play at high stakes and I know that I have done well in them. Going to play less games though, and not play when tired which I know affects my game immensely!

Can't wait for summer though, spent all day Saturday at the stables with my horses, got loads done and realised that this is my true hobby not poker, poker is great when you get home early as not a lot of riding to be done of an evening at this time of year. Once the nights draw out I shall be spending evenings out riding. One bonus of poker though is that in the past it helps fund the horses. Guess that is another reason I don't want to drop down, even though I enjoy playing poker, I play primarily to pay for nice extras :-)

Mr G shall be in my seat for the Hunnies this week, I know he will do me proud and I'm sure he loves all the female attention ;-)

Well, please let February end. Can't recall having a worse month, ever!! Had a couple of FT's but had so many near bubbles too. Playing mtt's where top ten get paid and I have had 11th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 15th!!!! The last one was my KK all in preflop against guy who had slightly more chips than me who called with AQ. We were lying 2nd and 3rd at time.

Then decided to play some 6paks and unbelievable outdraws, one after the other!!

Now, nobody likes to hear someones bad luck tales but I have never been running like this before. I have always tried to not let poker get to me, after all it is just a game, but I can honestly say that the laptop has nearly been thrown a couple of times :-(

Have had to reload in Betfair, lol, and Sun account getting low. About £1000 down for the month. I haven't tilted and I am playing my same game, which is falling way short I guess. Just need a decent result I guess.

Oh well, that is my rant over, there are much worse things in life than bloody poker, just need to reassess and try and recover, BRING ON MARCH!!!!!!!!!!

Running bad

Can't win a thing, Betfair account down £250 and sun account £300.

Thing is it is the first time since September, I am either playing when tired and I know that I am playing like a donkey or I am running bad ie AA vs KK and AA vs 99 tonight. Can't win any 50/50's either. Need to re focus and not play when tired, I know it won't last but it can be so bloody frustrating!!!

Dreamteam went ok last night, finished 25th but out of money. Don't know what it is but I seem to be finishing just out of money far too much, lol.

My birthday on Sunday so gonna go out and have a few drinks (lots) tomorrow night, meal and then the casino probably, need to let my hair down :-)

Hopefully things will pick up starting on Sunday, qualified for a $5k freeroll on sun for finishing 7th in GTD monthly leaderboard, only 30 in so hopefully my luck will change.

Well, January was a winning month, profit at around the £1100 mark which is very nice. Made 10 Final tables, which put me 7th on the Sun mtt leaderboard. Very pleased with this as it also enters me onto a 30 runner $5k freeroll.

One problem though - no wins!! Been close a few times but had no luck when it comes down to the make or break hands. Had a very frustrating week. Been playing a few of the Betfair $16k gtd mtts. 18 get paid and I have finished 22nd, 21st and 29th. Got really cheesed off with this and consequently my game suffered in other games. Got nightshift for the next three nights and I think the enforced poker break will do me good.

Meanwhile 'The Hunnies' didn't get to play this week due to the fact that Betfair had to cancel the game as some of the players got a 2500 starting stack and the rest got a 1500 starting stack, looooooooool. What a shambles!! After last weeks priblem with blind levels hopefully Betfair can get this sorted as it is getting slightly annoying!

Oh well, lovely nightshift for me :-(
