The Price of Success

I think I've become a target, that's the price of winning two bloggerments, multiple successful hammer blows, and blind aggression at the table. "Lucky Tan", "Hyper Aggresive Tan" and "No-Foldem Tan" have all been called out as new nicks for me in recent days ! Yes, on Sunday I was back to my lucky best and managed to take down another Brit Bloggerment. Sure I got lucky, pulled some bluffs and probably raised more than most in the game, but it worked and I managed to beat Acornman heads up after reliquishing a 2-1 lead and then fighting back.

I may be distracted for the next one though because yesterday I entered a couple of 10+1 satellites to the Sunday Warm-Up, the first game I played was a double shootout with 2 places paid and I finished 3rd ! Still a small profit but no seat. The second game was an MTT with 56 players, again with 2 places paid. This time despite only have 3 BB's at one point with 5 remaining I had a huge comeback and managed to claim one of the seats :o)

If you play confident then you will get lucky and winning poker is all about getting lucky !

Do you plan on playing in the Warm Up or you going to unregister and take the T$?

Good Luck in the warm-up mate, but I don't want to hear it as an excuse whenI knock you out of the bloggerment and take your title!!

I might try your hyper-aggressive-super-lucky-cheeky-bastard-raise-all-over-the-place style this week and see if it works for me!!!! ;-)

I'm playing the warm up, I only take the T$ when I can't make the game. No excuses though I plan to defend my bloggerment crown as well.

Thats the spirit!

I might rail you in the sunday warm up... or even have a pop at qualifying myself.
