After having seen Bewitched at Score on Wednesday, and sampling the delightful tunes A-soc’s Enigma had to offer, Flash and I were inspired to enjoy some Lemington Nightlife with Scott and Rick which culminated in a trip to the bars of North Leam, followed by venturing in to Mirage. When we got back, tea drinking was disrupted by Miss McHattie collapsing comatose on our art deco settee. Attempts to revive her, and bring her back to some state of consciousness, proved fruitless, until we managed to coax her upstairs with a bottle of vodka and under the Winnie the Pooh sheets.
Here is the video, as promised. Please leave comments here, or at warwickpoker.com

Here is some live footage of me deep in the $8r tonight. There are some interesting hands, even though the stacks are quite shallow. The next video will have sound; sorry there isn’t any in this one. Enjoy!

The highlight of my week: a trip to Toby Carvery to sample some proper, British food. None of this foreign muck. Even though it is all you can eat, no-one in our group dared to try a second helping, prefering instead to pile the food in a pyramid like formation on the plate. Also suggested as a prop bet was downing a ‘bottomless’ jug of custard, but alas, no-one rose to this challenge either.
We returned to Jambon and Kader’s swish pad after to sample the delights of their 9 48-inch plasma TV screens, indoor swimming pool, maid service and helipad, and I also picked up a few tips on how to stop my computer crashing when I am 8-tabling 5c/10c on Stars.
Props to Suzie also, who won a $1 2000 runner tourny on Stars. She was up til 6.30 in the morning, which is good to hear.
Here are some more pics of the crew in action.

Have played a lot of poker the last couple of days. Got pretty deep in a $50 Freezeout on stars, but then busted. Didn’t get to sleep until 10.30am on Friday night (Saturday morning), but still managed to get up before Flash, who had gone to bed 4 hours earlier. Was also doing reasonably well in the $50r this evening, but busted too. Ah well. Toby Carvery tomorrow, which should be awesome, followed by Ski Sunday and then all the poker Sunday evening has to offer. Which is a lot. Highlight of the day will be the Online Warwick Tournament at 9pm on Stars. KeyRing here we come!
Here are some photos of the coolest house in Leam, and its inhibitants living the balla lifestyle. Notice the wine glass below!

Day started on a grand note, one fellow in my seminar group cited the reason for his failure to submit an essay as having been busy vomiting all night on account of vomiting ‘cats and dogs’ all night after having sampled Chinese cuisine for the first time. Good to see that some people alongside myself have a superior digestive system which repels the filth.
After arriving home decided to play some cards, making use of Flash’s 2nd monitor to 6 table .50-1 on Ultimate bet. The session progressed nicely, although was interrupted by the howls of delight and yelps of despair from Dickie Beech who was busy learning that the name of the rivercard site is indeed prophetic. He finished the day with a nice profit though, so comedy headware off to him.
My session was graced with a player who was simultaneously playing 10-25NL, playing me heads up in order to fine tune his game. Needless to say I gave him a thorough schooling.
Also as if this wasn’t exciting enough, imagine Tom and I’s glee at spotting Keith Chegwin (fully clothed) in Viva yesterday.
To finish with, here is Leona Lewis and her wonderful Christmas single ‘Moment in Time’
