I was just "saying"

Had a thread up at the NPF regarding hates of both online and live poker which has been quite amusing and a wide range of contributions at this link top 3 hates in poker. Alot of well known ones are mentioned especially the one " I thought you had" and "its my fav hand" mmmmmmmmmmm onto Friday live.

As such I decide to venture out on Friday to play a little bit of live poker having not been in the scene of late. Take in the G £25 Double Chance Bounty game ( 1st ) to which attracts the huge field of 20 runners and I must say thank fuck for the Ipod as my starting table featured many people who totally tilt the arse off me especially a well known gay teacher!!!

I open 1st hand mid pos with 8s10s to a young student BB to which he calls. Flop of AKQ is checked to me and I fire a 1/2 pot cb to which he calls. Turn brings the Ace of spades giving me the flush draw and my gutshot is still there to which he tank calls my pot size bet. River is rag 4h and he once again checks to me and I put last chips from my 1st stack of 4500 into the pot. After an age tanking he looks at me and says " I think you have KK " Eventually he calls and flips over QJ. Nice hand sonny as I "tap the table" and shout for chips.
The table banter is tbh fkn unreal and tilting the life out of me so I turn up the volume of Ellie Goulding and try to get back into the game although I know Im going to struggle here. I start to get chips back mainly due to avoiding the mad maniac Chinese guy sat to my left who wants to ship his stack in every other hand with crap but seems to get there even though hes always behind. Eventually in level 3 of 75/150 playing about 10k the young student QJ guy opens utg for 600 and I look down at QQ. Lets go with this I decide and ship in my whole stack for Maniac Chinese guy to my left to snap call me and young student lad makes the fold of 10 10. Im up against Ac10d. Chinese guy tells me " Gambol Im tired and wanna go home" fuck me mate youve got mirrions of chips and are crushing every pot you enter ya daft twat.
Flop come down 7c8c9c lol giving him as many outs as he has chips and boom down comes the 3c on the turn to send me packing up my Ipod and heading over to Circus for there 9.00 game with late entry buy in.

Only 30 odd runners is this game but Im given a canny table sat to the left of Apokerlypse but opposite a drunken Rosib. Decide not to tune into my Ipod as yet as get into some canny convo and banter with Apokerlypse and tbh even Rosib was coming out with some funny stuff. Moving along steady and get to break with above avg stack to find the famous "ICall" has been moved into seat 10 on my left so happy days. He busts pretty early after making his flush which is rivered by a Rosib full house.
I make up from sb with Jh3h to a 5 way limped pot to see a Js9d3s flop and my lead bet is called in 2 spots. 8d turn and although I dont like this card I fire again to get a fold from guy on my left and an All In from Rosi. Im obv behind and fold to be shown JJ from her.............. nice button limp my dear. Ship a few times holding about 10 bbs getting me back in 12/14bbs area when Joe P opens utg with a min raise and I find JJ in the cut off. He asks me " How much is that Davey?" and I think it was about 12k " Yes I call cos its my fav hand" (probs 75% of his stack ) flipping the monsta known as K9 off. 9 on flop and standard Poker Stars 9 on the river sent me packing and off home.

Oh well its not just online where Im running shit................. roll on the NPF Champs when my run good juice will hopefull return
