£7 million for new gaff?

Anyone got nearly £7 million for a new house?

This place is up for sale in one of the North Easts most affluent ares of Darras Hall where alot of the footballers and wealthy people live.

Pretty awesome property and even more spectacular when you see it in real life. Take a butchers around the 360 degree interactive tour of room by room at this linkHouse for Sale. Amazing finish and design with one of the most spectacular staircases and hallways Ive ever seen.

Pokers & stuff

Nothing much to report tbh as hardly played. Went to Tenerife for week over Easter for a break and some sun with Mrs C and although its nice to get away for some rays and a nice hotel I was glad to get back tbh as Tenerife simply did nowt for me this time. Nice enough area where we were and hotel was fine but summit about place just didnt do it for me. Weather was ok ish but flights were bit cattle truck ish and nowt much happening around the bars and hotels. Had good day when the Mags thrashed Swansea away as pub I was in was full of Welsh guys who whinged their tits off at getting magged over by Cisse with 2 quality goals.
Havnt played anything local but made my mind up to play the GUKPT Main Event at Stockton so looked to get in on the cheap and was going to travel down for the live sat but then noticed they had an online sat on same night with 6 guaranteed seats. Decide to have pop at that as much easier than couple of hours round trip and a hopefully late night. £85 entry made 20 runners and with over £1k overlay 3 hours later I had cruised a main seat.

Travel down with Stumpy as he decides to buy in and forecast about 80 runner turn out wasnt far away. Very comfy 1st table before I get moved next to Stumpy despite losing with 2 of the 3 sets I make. Get ul not to get paid more with some nice flopped hands but made nice steady progress and very active and involved.
New table is totally diff dynamics and lucky to get couple of decent bluffs through for meaty pots which included getting guy to fold KK after he raised pre flop but found an AQQ board not to his liking. My 88 in pos just scared him away. After being in some interesting pots with same young Asian guy he calls my 10 10 raise oop. He check raises a 556 flop but flats my 4 bet. Another heart comes on turn and I lead less than 1/2 pot with no intention of folding if he shoves and sure enough he puts them all in. Convinced Im still ahead but if Im wrong my stack is totally fkd to less than 8k. I make the call and tells me hes got pair with flush draw. His pair is the 6 with the heart draw and the Q spades gives me meaty pot and nice stack.
Get moved tables late on to live stream table and take down some nice un contested pots to finish day 6th in chips on over 125k

Day 2 and re draw puts me on pretty tough table imo and not best of position table wise and 1st 2 levels and 2 hours were total agony. Dealt total gutter shit cards and any time I made a move light I walked into big hands. I was probably getting frustrated at not being involved enough and then get ul defending my blind with 45hh that makes bottom end straight but button guy had raised with 86ss and made top straight. I then made couple of bad mistakes that cost me badly. I call table short stack shove from my BB with Ace 10 and his 9s hold. Guy went on super run after that and was eventual winner. I then make bad mistake last hand before break by putting wrong chips in and overbet which Im priced in to call short stack shove and my A8cc is dominated and crushed by AJ which held.
Im table shorty now with 28k but get it back up to over 80k before dribbling chips away and some bad luck. Eventually go out when Alan Peers the guy that won raises early position and I ship over his raise with poket tens which he snaps off with AKhh. Off we go the races and its all low cards but turn brings another heart and river the 5 hts to give him flush which tbh I didnt see at 1st. 5th big pot he had rivered the win when behind and no surprise he went onto win although imo he did seem to be in total charge of the final table that I watched quite abit of on the live stream. Out in 17th and bit disappointed in how I played day 2.

Followed the progress of alot of lads that had made the trip down to DTD for the UKIPT leg guaranteed at a staggering £1 million and hats off to Jamie Dale, Neil " Buzz" Harvey and Keith " Ridla" Ridly who all went deep and some decentish cash especially Keith who finished in top 20 for over £6k going out AK over AQ with sick rvr Q. Wp to them but special mention to the nearly fairytale win from Ian " Macmonster" Senior who ended up 8th for well over £20k,
Met Ian and his lovely wife as members of the UK Sharks forum who attended every NPF Team Challenge game. Lovely guy and lovely genuine couple but was shocked to hear his wife has passed away with cancer during this year. Guy played totally fearless in probably the biggest tournie he had ever played in and became the peoples favourite in who they wanted to win before eventually exiting in a cooler hand of QQ v KK.

Playing the Poker Player Tour game this weekend at G Newcastle which has a capped field of 120 runners with pretty turbo ish structure and then wont be long before its Vegas time again.

Off over there 11th June till 21st June and got a possible maximum of 5 Seniors Events to play this visit which Im really looking forward to. Ill put more exact details about these closer to the time.

For those that dont know my business sells Ironwork parts to fabrication companies and most of our products we import from the Far East. Well we had a delivery of a container load this week but were pretty Shocked when we pulled the doors open to find a cat had been locked inside it and had starved to death during the 6 weeks it had been inside. Not a pretty sight tbh and we had to inform the enviromental health authority about it. The smell inside the container was pretty awful apparently. Well done Dreamdobb on sorting it all out and so glad it was on my day off.

Stay happy and watch out for stray pussies
