I had a quicky cheap sitngo on Victor Chandler tonight.  The fish were out in force!

 

I just cannot understand why people sit down to play a game of poker and end up playing bingo!  First hand - idiot goes all in with 10 Q off suit.  One caller J K suited hearts.  The fish got lucky with his 10 Q after hitting a 10 on the turn.

 

The fish was going with any hand that was suited i.e Q3 hearts, other players were going all in with 10 2 off.  Just because they see Doyle Brunson do it they think they are going to get lucky too.  Well guess what - he hit 10 2 on the flop and won.

 

Anyway - enough of me moaning about the other players.  I played really tight and aggressive.  When I hit - I bet big to stop the fish and it worked.

 

After I had a showdown with the player that eventually ended up 4th, he left the table and just posted and folded.  Think I had a full house to his K high...lol.

 

It was a good game though and these cheap sitngos keep me "on my toes".  I ended up coming 2nd after one of the luckier fish kept hitting with his rubbish.

I played a sitngo on Sky - cheap buy in and there was one good player on the table.

 

I managed to knock out two players in one go - I had AJ off suit and I raised big because I'd seen the hands that 3 of the others had been playing and I wanted to get them off their rubbish.  Needless to say two of them called.  I hit my jack on the flop - the other 2 cards were 7 and 9.  I went all in - they both called.  One had K7 and the other one had K8 !!!

 

Neither of them hit anything so I knocked em both out.

 

Came down to 2 of us and I was playing very aggressively.  Raising with Aces and huge raises with pairs.  The blinds were at 600/300 and everytime I got the other player down to low chips, he hit a great hand and won some back.

 

Finally I had Ace 7 and decided to put him all in - blinds were now up to 1000/2000.

 

He called and I hit my ace on the flop - he had king rag and I ended up winning the hand with my Aces.    I really enjoyed the game as the other player didnt play like a muppet and it was a quality game.

 

I really need to up my stakes now - playing these low limit sitngos are ok but Im not winning big.  I have always played low stakes poker and maybe its time to move up a notch.

GRRRRRRRR

 

2nd hand in a double your money sit and go.  I get pocket AA.  BB is 20 so I raised it 15 times to 300 and I get one caller.  I go all in as the flop is Q 3 9 rainbow.  Opponent calls and he is holding 33.  I lose to his trips and I can't believe he called a huge raise like that with pocket 3s.  I would have folded them if it was me but hey - I'm not every player.

Just played a cheap...and I mean CHEAP MTT sitngo - 360 entrants - and I came 24th which isnt bad.  Tripled my stake - which isnt much!

 

Had pocket Aces at one point and somebody raised so I decided to just go all in.  Two callers - one had KK and the other had JJ.  My aces held (which is rare) and I trebled up.  These chips kept me going for most of the tournament. 

 

Down to about $1400 in chips and the BB is on me at 600.  2 callers and I had A3 so I thought I would just throw my chips in and see what happens.  One person called and he had a small pair.  Flop comes Ace rag rag and my Aces held and I won the pot.

 

Blinds are now 1200 and Im getting low.  Im BB and this left me with 900 chips - cards are K6.  Flop comes down 10 6 3.  So I chucked all my chips in and two others called.  I beat one but the other had 10 rag and won.  He was getting lucky with rubbish most of the hands and needless to say, this hand was no different.  But 24th out of 360 was ok with me.

Just played another cheapy sitngo - 360 players and I managed to come 2nd and won $6 for my 10c stake!

 

A fantastic return on my money - 6000%.

 

It was a good game and I took a few risks with the large stacks who were bullying the smaller stacks but I had been paying attention and watching them closely.  It certainly pays off to watch your opponents and make notes on them as the game goes on.

 

All in all - a good result.  ;D

On poker stars - I played a $1 sitngo - 45 players.

 

Was a good game and managed to come 3rd winning $7.

 

Tonight - played in a 45 seater again and came nowhere.  I had AA and raised the BB 15 times - one caller.

 

Flop comes rubbish low cards 2J5 - opponent goes all in and I called.  Opponent shows Ace 3 off suit!!!!!!!

 

Turn is an Ace I have trips and opponent has a pair of aces with a straight draw.  Needless to say the river is a 4 and the fishy muppet gets his straight.  I tried to badger him a bit and had a go but he didnt reply sadly.

 

And finally....I just played a dollar sitngo with 18 players and managed to scrape 3rd with a bit of bluffing and stealing.  Won $4.20 I think.

 

Poker stars deposit NIL - current balance $16.15!

 

Not bad from the $5 they gave me.

Yesterday was the most dire day of alltime.

 

Every game I played I came upon <(((< and muppets.  What can you do.  You raise with QQ and a muppet calls with k7 suited and hits a  straight on the river after throwing his/her chips in the pot.

 

I know fish and chips is a great British invention but when it comes to poker - its impossible to deal with.  I doubt that any of the fish would be any good at a live game of poker and I'm sure they wouldnt throw their chips in on rubbish like K7 suited.

 

Suited cards add 2% to the value of a hand and based on that info - people throw their chips in "willy nilly".

 

Needless to say I think I only placed in a couple of games but overall the losses were bad.

 

Perhaps tonight will be a better story.

Just played a £2 double your money sit and go on sky.

 

I managed to come first even though the top 3 double their money.  The incentive to win is the league points they give away.  Gather enough and you can enter into a £500 freeroll at the end of the month.

 

So a good start as I haven't played since I came back from my long weekend away.

I;ve just played 2 x 10c games on poker stars.  360 entrants and the prizes aren't too bad if you can make it to the final table.

 

First game - I was doing really well - knocked 4 people out in one hand with pocket Aces.  I was chip leader at this point which I hate so early in a game.

 

Getting near to the end, Im the dealer and the guy who is BB has 25k chips I have 18k at 11th position out of 36 people left.  I had A2 suited diamonds.  Thought I would try a small raise to 3 x BB and he would fold.  He called and not only did he hit his 10 with his 10 Q off but he managed to make trips.  So I got knocked out through carelessness and came 35th and just about got my money back.

 

In the other game I had pocket Aces and got beaten by someone with pocket 3s who hit a 3 on the flop (I was all in).

 

So thats the day so far.  More games to be posted shortly and lets hope its a bit better than this!

Just played another 10c tourney - well one hand!

 

Had QQ was trying to just flat call a small raised bet but someone went all in.  I called as did 2 others.  It was QQ vs 10 10 vs A8 (the all in bet)

 

Flop comes K82 - turn K - river Ace.  Bye bye me but I had the best hand to the river.

These 10c tourneys on poker stars are pretty good - you get to play against 360 players and if you can make it to the break, you will be in the money.

 

I've played a few in the last couple of days - placed 76th, 35th 31st and I'm in one now and currently placed at 17th out of 33.

 

UPDATE

 

I was BB and the blinds were $1500/$750.  I was dealt KK and somebody raised me up to 8,000.  I called and won the hand and knocked opponent out - opponent had 8K hearts so he had no chance.  Few hands later I am dealt AA so I just went all in and somebody called with A6 and I won that one.  Two great hands which both dominated the board.  Yay me.

 

I managed to come 7th and won $1.30 which isnt bad for a 10c stake.

 

These tourneys are well worth a go for 10c.

I played on PKR last night in a freeroll (one of the free tickets they give you to enter a 500 point freeroll) and after a few hands I lost a shed load of chips to a fish who chased a straight to the river. 

 

I was left with 100 chips and there were 542 entrants.  I probably would have been 400 and something had I gone out then.

 

After picking the right hands to "all in", I managed to get myself back up to 3k.

 

The blinds and ante were crippling me and I had a small pocket pair - 6s and decided it was time to chance my hand.  Everybody had folded except the Small Blind (I was big blind) so I took a chance and raised him all in.  He called straight away and my worst fears were realised.  He flat called with pocket Qs - first time he had a good hand and didnt raise.  Typical!

 

Needless to say I lost and ended up finishing 46th. 

 

So even at an early stage if you lose most of your chips - just remember that a chip and a chair still has value if you play your cards right (and have a bit of luck).  ;D

I'm gutted - played in a point freeroll on Sky and managed to get up to 25k - last 22 players (top 40 get paid).

 

Im dealt KK and somebody raises all in - an opponent calls so I raised all in and they call (they had 68k).

 

Hands are shown and my KK shows - two opponents have A7 and A4.  Flop comes down 684.  Turn is a 9 and river is a 10.  Beaten by someone who was chip leader and got lucky. 

 

How often do you see this at online casinos?

 

I see it all the time - you get beaten by the person who has chips left.  Ah well such is life - I won a few cents for coming 21st.

Just played in a freeroll for a seat in a big tourney on Sunday and without realising it I came 6th.

 

Shame there was only one prize.  I took a chance that the big blind didn't have an ace and went all in after I hit K's

 

Sadly he had the ace and I was knocked out.  It was easy to get that far though  - play was bad and if you want to have a go its at Vegas007

I just played in the Sunday satelite again and came 5th this time.  Final hand- I had pocket 4s and opponent had 9J off.  He hit his 9 on the flop and then another one on the river so that was the end of me.

 

Here is a hilarious picture of one of my opponents "mrxstace" - I dont think so!

I just had a freeroll on Sky poker and whilst I didnt win any cash (72nd out of 437) I did manage to have one amazing hand in the tournament.

 

Check out my "royale with cheese" just before I went all in (and got called).  What a lovely hand.

I just had a couple of games on carbon poker - just for fun.

 

I won the first round of the "fun step" games you can play on there.  I joined the 2nd stage and amazingly everybody played quite well - unfortunately, I got stitched up by someone who slow played pocket aces and I had Qs.

 

I was down to about 550 chips and had QA - blinds were 100/50 so I went all in UTG and the guy who was BB called with K8 off suit.  He hit a pair of 8s and I got knocked out.  Ah well - it was only play money.

 

But if you can win 3 of these Fun Step sitngos - you get a free buck.  You can buy (250 play chips) 8 tickets a day.  So its a good bit of fun for no money at all.

 

Needless to say, I have to start again at fun step 1.  >:(

I played two games on poker time last night.  The first game I'd only played a few hands when I had pocket QQ.

 

So I raised the pot to 120 (blinds were 15/30).  I got raised so I reraised and ended up going all in pre-flop (which I hate) - 2 opponents had AK and AQ.  A 10 9 all hearts flopped.  I had the Q hearts and unfortunately the guy with A K had the Kh.  Needless to say the turn was a heart and not only would I have lost to a pair of Aces but I did lose to a better flush.

 

 

The second game wasnt much better.  I had A 6 and was unraised BB.  Flop was Ace rag rag.  So I bet and was just called.  Turn comes - another rag so I bet high - trying to get opponent to fold, he just called again.  River - no help.  I bet high - he raised me all in and turns out the fish was chasing his flush and hit it on the river.  he had nought up to that point.  So typical of cheap games.

I played in a freeroll on www.skypoker.com (buy in 20 poker points) and needless to say because its free - the fish and muppets are out in their hundreds.  I was playing tight for  a few hands and then I got AA.  The blinds were 20/40 so I raised to 240 - 6x BB and I got 1 caller and a raiser so I just went all in as did the other two in the hand.  Cards are revealed and one has A9 and the other has QK.  Flop comes down Q98 - turn 10.  Im still in the lead but worried about the J.  But hey presto the fish won on the river whcih was another 9 - so he had trip 9s. 

 

How can you go all in pre flop with rubbish like A9 off?  Well I guess thats what you get when the entry fee is just a few poker points.

Times are hard - I just played in a 25 FPP game on poker stars.  What a joke.

 

All the muppets going all in with any old rubbish all the time.  Catch a hand and call em and they get lucky with rubbish like 37 off and 26 off.  What is poker coming to?

 

I despair.

I played two "double your money" sitngos tonight.

 

I managed to double my money on the first game.  I won a large pot when I had KK.  I raised heavy pre-flop to get rid of the fish.  The flop came down with only one caller.  It was Q94 so I just went all in and the opponent called.  He had A9 so he'd hit his 9s.  Luckily he didnt get lucky with his ace and I knocked him out.  I managed to come 2nd (top 3 get paid) so I doubled my money back.

 

The second game I played - there was this jerk from somewhere up north UK and he was a totally rude insulting idiot.  He called me names and spoke about my mother.  I was offended by his rudeness and name calling but I tried not to let it affect my game.

 

Sadly though I only came 4th and as the prizes were top 3 only - I missed out on the cash.

 

I was leading until the river - usual thing on www.skypoker.com
