My first ever blog!



This is the first time I have ever posted a blog, partially because I am a lazy get when it comes to deeing things on-line and partially because I didnt think anyone would be interested in reading it anyway! Having seen the way the NPF has taken off and the amount of replies to almost all threads, I have realised people are interested in reading about any old crap so here goes!!!

Firstly, I would like to say a big thank-you to Dave Collins for inviting me to his blogger for the second time and for keeping me a part of the original Teamdobbs crew which has played the team game at the Grosvenor casino for the last two years, we will defo win it next year!! I would also like to thank him and scott for the fantastic job they are doing in regards to the NPF. It has given the North East and beyond a great vehicle to discuss the ins and outs of this phenomenom which has taken over the world called POKER. I know they put a lot of hard work into it in their own time to keep this going and it has brought together North East poker in a big way.

I regret I have to mention in my first blogg about bad play and a bad beat story but as it happened last night I am still stewing about it. Went to Aspers for the Thursday £50 deepstack tourny as I was told it was a good game and having never played it before along with the fact I was off work the next day was a good opportunity to go deep and have a late night, he he, i wish! Good start to the night when I nearly shit meself crossing the the road and some arsehole decides to honk his horn when he is waiting for the lights to change to green. Ignoring the first honk, it happens again as I am trying to dodge the traffic to register before 8 and so I am about to give the old swivel finger when I notice, yes its Teamdobbs in his big ass 4x4 thingy.

Get there in good time and imediately see a lot of friends who I have played with over the years, Jimmy from Grosvenor, Dave, Arian, Jimmy Chipmunk to name some. Sit down and start playing with a group of players I have seen but never really played much with before. A lot of the table are gambling early on and trying to hit some flops but with the blinds very small compared with with chip stacks there is no need for me to get involved just yet especially with the garbage I was being dealt. Sure enough gradually a few were losing their stack little by little and were getting desperate towards the first break. At this point I had added about 3k onto my stack and was quite happy. After the break I started to pick up a few hands, AA which I took down after the flop when someone called my raise and folded, 55 on a flop of 4 3 9 which I took down with a pot sized bet after raising pre-flop. I decided to use my table image and raise in position with decent hands and not just premium hands, then out of the blue KK. Blinds 2 and 4 so I raise it up to 12. Everyone folded apart from bb who called by raise, flop 10 6 4 rainbow. I have about 10k left, he has about 8k, 2.6k in pot, he bets out 2.5k so I decide to push allin. He thinks for a little while and calls which puts him allin, he turns over 10 J which in my opinion was a really bad call anyway but I am happy so cant complain, sure enough turn brings a J and river 10 for his full house! I ask him if he thought I was bluffing and he responded by saying no, just wanted to gamble to hit my other cards, Oh well on my knees now with under 3k left and the blinds up to 3 and 6 hundred only a round or two left to see something, eventually have to push with nothing and go out about 11pm. See you next week MR 10 j when I will take all of your chips off you!"

My fingers are bleeding now, later dudes.
