Ornate Push




Thursday, January 21, 2010


Finished 43rd in the $3 rebuy last night, a decent finish but I played too nitty in the mid-late stages. I got a big stack with the beautiful hand below and then on two occasions folded AK preflop. The first I'm not too bothered about, I was moved to a new table and on the second hand got AKo. There was an UTG raise from a player I know to be decent and big reraise from an unknown, I don't think there's a problem folding there with 40BBs. The second time I was dealt AsKs in the first hand after moving again, another unknown the same stack as me (about 40BBs again) raised 10x in EP. I later discoved this guy was a german who played poorly and overbet every time, wish I had pushed when I had the chance, then I might have run a little deeper.

You should have a read of Otis' experience of paying for a baby in America, http://www.rapideyereality.com/archives/2010/01/19/st-francis-hospital-the-real-cost-of-having-a-baby/ . It's so easy in the UK to take the NHS for granted, and while it is by no means perfect, I would rather have an imperfect system that is cheap and accessible to everyone (and yes can be abused by a few layabouts) than a system which is abused by those running it to those most in need.

And finally it's the long awaited return of

See you there !

Congrats on the cash :-)

Always sucks to play that long and not win, but I'm starting to see the brighter side of cashing . . .
