Instant Variance

Finished just inside the money again in the $5 15k last night 413/4176. Got allin with QQ vs AK and doubled up. Very next hand got allin with QQ vs KQ and was sent home by the King on the flop. Tournaments are so enjoyable !
Played the fishhook poker "local" game for "local" people online last night. I don’t think I've ever seen a game with so much ABC poker before. Like straight as a die - if I bet I've got something if I check I don’t, no bluffing, no calling when people are short stacked, very straight play. There's money to be made if I could ever be bovved to go out and play live. Having to deal ourselves and the screwed up rebuy structure kinda puts me off though.
It doesn't make sense to me to have a rebuy tournament with a £20+2 buyin (for 3k chips) but only £10 for rebuys of the same number of chips. Anyone ever played in a tourney with a buyin like that ? It just doesn't sit right with me, though I can see the appeal of it encouraging rebuys.

Good job I didn't book flights to vegas yesterday. Gatwick was frozen over this morning so I wouldn't have made it from Jersey to London and wouldve been stuck ! ( Yeah at one point last night I was craving it so much I actually worked out the connecting flights ! )
dD - Yeah the wbcoop has a week of qualies which you can play all of, top 72 I think go through to a "main event" wbcoop final. It's not the sale of the century but anything free is worth a shot :o)
Bam - Love the diary from the last trip, now I wanna go just to bust some moves at the slot machines :o)
Have fun in vegas y'all, I'll try and win something big in the meantime...

Glad you enjoyed them! There should be more from around a year ago too, as I was at the WBPT last year.

No word of a lie.... word verification is "pricks"
