June 03, 2006


Once again I was on the end of a ropey LBW decision. At least I batted for 18 overs, didn't score many runs, but took the piss out of the opening bowlers, tilted them something chronic. It was a hot day and I could see how those boys were enjoying their long runs up so much I decided it would be fun to interrupt them mid flow…Unfortunately I had a fly in my eye. Shame!

Well I didn't succeed, but if you can ruin some part of someone else's day, you know you've done your job!!

If at first you don't succeed, rely on Scandanavians to do well..

Anina, a friend of mine, who Flash and I met in Copenhagen played the $150 freeze on stars last night. I went out with AQ to JJ, I was happy to reraise allin, as I was trying to represent a squeezeplay, as button had already called the raise. However, the original raiser called me with JJ and it was off to the races. I don't mind how I played the hand here, I didn't really want to play against an aggressive opponent with AQ oop, and the latter fold by the flatcaller vindicated my move further. People often say "look for better spots", however, at present in these tourney stakes, I do not feel that I can sit around waiting for hands.

Anyway, as Anina and I had a 50/50 my involvement was not over. She asked my advice on one hand where there there was a player allin and an active sidepot, she held QJ on a Q high board, and when matey boy moved in she asked for advice. Being keen to assert my bravey, I obviously advised that she fold. Unfortunately the other chap held TT..OOPS..It was comforting when she told me "I don't know why I asked you anyway, I knew I should have called", it's moments like this when I take great pride in my decision making.

Progressing further without being hampered by my advice Anina reached the final table. Just as I was settling down under my duvet the unthinkable happened, she disconnected. I was impressed that Pokerstars gave her 4 minutes to reconnect, however, to no avail. Fortunately I found her phone number in an old email and gave her a call.

So I played the final table for her, I must say it was great fun playing under the guise of a Scandanavian Girl, I think I shall change Mary's location. We were the shortstack after a few rounds of folding..However, the Scandanavian influence was strong..before we got too short I moved in with 8To, and upon being called was rather concerned. However, our opponent held AK and was drawing dead on the turn when 8T fulfilled it's often unrealised potential.

Now we had a few chips to play with, however, unfortunately there was an excellent player with a large stack to our left, this chap wanted to dance; but we didn't fancy having our toes broken by his clod hoppers. Before long, after having pf raises snapped off it was back into allin mode.

We ended up coming 5th for $3.8k, a tidy sum, who know's what could have been if our final frenzied K7 push had stood up against AT…Top prize was 17k, which was collected by the disco diva on our left who spoilt our party.

Anina did really well to make final, and I think I played it fine, I certainly didn't disgrace her Scandanavian reputation and made a few dollars to boot.

Looks like it's going to be a nice day, which is good as I've got a cricket match this afternoon. The past two games I've been the subject of some horrific LBW decisions…BAD BEAT..46 overs in the field followed by one bad decision…Day over
