All entries for September 2006

Took a break from my busy schedule gambling schedule to watch spooks last night. Was a bit of a corker, tension galore. Was good to see a gritty, raw programme, incidentally for those that saw it, I know Dave Lu would not shy away from taking that shot. Anyways, better hope that style does not take precedence over substance, we can’t be having unexpected deaths every episode. There’s a snap below of the latest addition to the cast of Spooks.
Also interestingly shaniac smokes a lot of ganga, apparently made a bet that he could quit for a month, but had to back out after a week! Strassa has just won 400k+ in WCOOP, a nice little bunsen, although obv. he concentrating on graduating in May. Also, Davey lu’s old flame Vicky Coren just won London EPT.

Not much to report, played last cricket game of season today. Managed to ripp the piss out of their “pro” Aussie for being a convict and a cheat, so not a bad day really.
Looking forward to hitting leam and getting on the piss with mongy mob.

Following the copious quantities of cocaine Dave Lu made me snort in the states (luckily we had diplomatic immunity), I thought it would be a good idea to play some small stakes poker.
Quicker than Kate Moss can hoover a line I’d dipped my toe in at the shallow end to swim with veritable pirhanas in a 25c 50c game. The line up included Dalassenos, tollamus, jambonator, suited flush and herself 76.
Obviously the average pot lingered somewhere around the $25 mark. My personal highlight was when Flash and I minraised each other 50c a time preflop until we had each staked $14 of our il-gotten gains in 50c increments. In fact at this point one of the other players suggested we were bots!??
Anyways am running pretty good in these games, although I’m embarrassed to say my stats are not as laggy as Jambon’s, I have him at 68/43 after 225 hands. I feel like such a nit now.
Anyways got to shoot Dave’s bringing around some Columbian tonight and I better get some kip, that boy’s nostrils know no limits.

Well been a while since my last entry. Have been Stateside playing poker, drinking and seeing the sites. Many Thanks to Davey Lu for organising a fantastic trip and to all the people who came along for making it such a fantastic time.
Will probably whack some pictures on soon. Playing poker in US of A was certainly different, feel it’s helped my game somewhat, if only trying to get a better understanding of terrible player’s thought processes.
Really looking forward to next year. Living with Scott, Rick and Flash sounds like poker heaven, but I’m looking forward to getting out on the piss with them more. Rick and I should be catching up for anotherTequilla session pronto, wonder if he’ll get propositiponed again.
Pokerwise I spunked most of roll in states, and am now waiting for mansion to cough up the £1.1k they owe me. I think I will go about building a roll sensibly. I dominated the tournys on stars last few academic terms, yet it’s been Ha££INGOL’s strip club fund that has reaped the benefits.
Should be back up to Uni before start of term to put in some hours on the poker front. Will also look into playing GSOP as those fish deserve a good frying and I somehow didn’t place in the last £250 comp.

So, I havent blogged in a while. Please excuse me for my laziness. A couple of days ago I visited Flash in his crib (South London). This is picture I feel accurately shows the kind of place Flash lives in:
More to come soon
