Headed to wing wah last night with poker pals. Was a lot better than I expected-the joys of a pessimistic outlook- the dog is always half eaten. Got inolved with the chicken and scampi and didn’t even demonstate my proficiency with chop sticks. Was particularly impressed with the way one of the kitchen staff was polishing plates in a “wax on-wax off mention”. Pudding consisted off jelly and ice-cream, which once again was fine. Haven’t suffered a bout of food poisoining yet, which is good, would be a waste to get ill in reading week!
Went bowling after and got pwned in a prop bet by Jambon, I’d done my research and figured that the man was nothing without his white leather jacket, but clearly the legacy of it still provides the boy wonder with his mystical powers.
Just had word from Parsy that he may be down this w/e, so no doubt there will be some bouts of reckless dissipation and debauchery to report health permitting. Think we may head along to cheerleading event at evolve if enough people can neglect the sunday tournaments.

Went out for drinks on Tuesday night in the graduate- ended up getting pretty wasted and headed down to an ASoc event which was taking place in The Cooler. A good time was had by all, with some entering fully into the spirit of the night. Stars and played this for some time.
lo and behold there waa a knock at the door and Suzie and Chattie turned up, having been to see some horrifically violent film at the cinema. Prooving just how sociable internet poker really is iplayed in the kitchen whilst those mentioned above Flash and james looked over my shoulder. They were planning on going out for dinner and in felt a little guilty for keeping them waiting so offered to pick up the tab if I won. Ended up winning the monies for $5k. Was good fun playing with friends watching and nice to have a decent score.
Went out for dinner at Prezzo and quaffed a healthy quantity of champagne to supliment our pasta dishes. Was quite a quiet atmosphere in the restaurant, so we did our best to liven it up a little popping champagne corks, Chattie shouting “kaffa” at the waiters etc..Was then on to TJ’s for more liver abuse. Was a good day, nice combination of poker and socialising.
On Thursday I moved some funds to party and made about 1.3k playing 1-2 NL. Went bowling with the Jagger house, Shaz, dave, Lauren and Chattie. managed to pwn the word up machine with Tom and lauren-clearing the grid and securing top score by a margin of 300 points. On arriving home made a video of my mtt win, wish I’ll post soon.
Friday was prett quiet affair although ended up going for a great meal at Wilde’s with Rick and Scott- Tom was at Suzie’s that night. Had pate followed by lamb cutlets- was very good.
Saturday- props to Rupert for taking down the $8r on stars, Tom and I got sicked in 100r, but he managed to secure an EPT Warsaw seat. Congratulations for that fantastic achievement. Obviously celebratons were in order and we headed to meet James in Robbin’s Well, then met Scott and friends in some atrocious Indian restaurant where I endured a Scampi and chips, was terrible. To cleanse my palate headed to TJ’s for a cheeky drink, unfortunately the IT BOX was occupied, so were unable to rape it.
That’s all for now…

Just made a two part video. Here is a preview. Watching this part back, I realised I sounded slightly too sure of myself, although I am still confident. However, players I respect have disagreed, so I thought it would be interesting to post this hand

After much recent speculation, there have been exciting developments in the Union. Yes, finally the Union has seen the light and added WORD UP to their collection of quiz games. Look out for LuckySeven™ dominating the high score table.
Went out to grad and event in the Cooler last night-Indian Event of some kind- only 4 of use pale skinned mob in there-clearly they had flocked from all arouned to witness the moooves pulled of by Jambon, James, Chattie and myself. However, rather disappointly the event was somewhat tainted for me, as once again Jamie neglected to wear his white leather jacket- I look forward to the spring when he will once again become a major player on the fashion scene. Also, expect him to wear sunglasses all year around like the Greeks. Good time was had by all, although there has been much whinging about hangovers this morning-not balla!
Have also been enjoying following the elections campaign, am particularly impressed that there has been no chalk scrawlings on the pavement to damage my designer apparel.

Has been a busy week to ten days. Went on a poker trip/Flash’s 21st to Dublin which was thorougly enjoyable. Highlights included throwing my passport on a baggage carousel for a prop bet, witnessing Porno Mark’s drunken banter at the poker table, playing a load of irish fish, breakfast (black and white puddings), getting lost in Dublin having no idea where I was with a drunk McChattie, spending some time with Ed Barron and his biatches, buying myself a lamb card protector and sampling Irish Guinness. My Goodness! Congrats also to Jack and Sarah for making the final table, and to Sarah for winning it as well. Also to Jambon for destroying the cash games. Big thanks to James Smith for organising the trip.
When we got back no-one else was up for drinking apart from the STA boys so had a beer there and went back and chilled. Monday was poker soc and drinks afer. Also failed to do a press up with Flash on my back. He obv eats too many pies. Tuesday was Blood Diamond and Jumping Jacks. I enjoyed the film as it broadened my social/ethnic horizons. There were some real balla black men driving pick ups and weilding AK47s and listeing to Tupac. Not a film I would usually go and see.
Wednesay involved comedy night at Kelseys. The less said about this, the better. Thursday saw a good meal at Leam B&G (where Rick got the whole restaurant to sing happy birthday while keeping his clothes on, an admirable effort) followed by Mirage. Friday was a quiet night in. Might go over Jambon’s tomorrow to play some poker and watch the SuperBowl. Will def update the blog more frequently, as it is quite hard to update it on a weekly basis.
Congrats also to my mate Annette_15 for winning this weeks TLB on Stars. Big props to Annie.
Here is my graph from January. Lots of ups and downs, but the general trend is exciting me.
My aim for this month (Feb) is to play 50,000 hands, do more uni work, go out socialing more, and make Platinum status on Stars. Also to post more on 2+2, and take down a Warwick Poker Soc Tourney.
