Pls no bok!

Ok I'm a lazy git and I've been too busy for making long posts at the moment hence no trip report from the £300 at Big Slick where I got 5th a week ago.

I've been running really good online at the moment - in the last 6 weeks I'm probably up around £6000 playing $1/2 and $2/4 (probably 90% $1/2). It's a bit weird but when I've had a minute and felt like posting I've not wanted to do so for fear of bokking my good run or seem like I'm boasting. Pretty stupid huh? Can't wait for my rakeback to come in at the end of the month too. My first full months play on a 50% deal....juicy!! Leave me a message here if you wanna know more details or to jump on the more $$$ for nothing bandwagon.

I've decided to have a few days off. This week I'm hitting the gym and meeting a friend from Nottingham who's down on tuesday as he begins the Black Belt poker scheme. Then on Wednesday night I'm going to watch my old housemate from Uni at a gig in Camden. I've also pulled all my money offline so I can work out what my bankroll actually is. Constant deposits and cashouts and money across a few different sites isn't totally ideal and this will be the first week in a while I know where I'm at.

I'll be up at DTD this weekend for the £300 weekend. Let me know if you're playing.

In the meantime, glglglglgl.

5th for £1500.

Sigh.

Will write up a report when I de-tilt.

Day 2 of the Big Slick £300....

Played the Big Slick £200 +(1rebuy/add on) last night. I really like the club - the management and valets are really friendly and the dealers seem to be pretty well trained too.

You start with 10k and can rebuy or add on at any time. If I didn't find tournaments so draining I would play at Big Slick a lot more often as it's probably the softest live place I've ever played with 60% of the field being absolute dead money. Had some really interesting hands which I will try and remember and post after the tourney finishes.

The one bad thing is that there were 103 runners and 18th-10th pay £300 for money back. I would rather they scrapped that and just paid the FT a bit more but I think the club want to pay as many people as possible so that they get more returners each month. The one good thing is that I went to play it with 2 mates and both of them made the final 18 too and I have 50% in one.

There are 1,870,000 chips in play and I have 258,000 going in with 18 left and £7.5k up top.

One time and all that!

My inspiration in poker....RAZOR666!

I just wanted to write a quick post about my inspiration in the poker world. For most people it's Patrik Antonius, Daniel Negreanu, Durrr, Phil Ivey etc etc. For me its someone much less well known but no less skilled.

Formerly known by Chaos, Wooderl and Razor666 his play has now become so unexploitable that he no longer needs to change his nickname ever again. Anyway this guy is a true midstakes baller. When he's not crushing the 292 tables that he's able to play optimally at one time he's normally in a sunny far away country sipping on gin and juice with an exotic woman on his arm. I won't even go into the Razormobile that he drives. Sick, just sick.

It's just a shame that he doesn't play on FullTilt because he would DEFINITELY work his way up through the limits and in my opinion (some dickheads with no brain may disagree) he would be battling the nosebleeds day in day out with the likes of Ivey, Benyamine, Ziigmund, Durrr, Hansen & Co. Unfortunately this doesn't look like it will ever be the case as Full Tilt don't offer good enough rakeback deals for him.

I'll leave you all with a conversation I had on msn with Razor after a very rare bad session.

Razor says:

Razor says:

Razor says:

Razor says:
sometimes i swear ur takin mick
10 BI says:
nah im not
10 BI says:
you earn more rakeback in one month than successful businessmen earn in salary
10 BI says:
anything you'd like me to say?
Razor says:
that i run like shit (and he still wins at like 30bb/100, running normally would be like 40bb/100 imo)
10 BI says:
dont be so downbeat
10 BI says:
u'll get that money back
Razor says:

Razor says:
is a joke
Razor says:
i jus lost big pot
Razor says:
aq to a5 all in pre
Razor says:
lol
Razor says:
he hits trip 5
10 BI says:
these fish that get their money in with A5 are why u make ur money online
10 BI says:
cos sometimes they get lucky, but normally you just crush their souls so hard
10 BI says:
its like you put a skewer through their kidneys the pain u make their bank accounts feel year in year out


Any fan mail you want passed on to him let me know and I'll arrange an appropriate method of delivery.

Other news just in is that he's employed Platonic as a toilet attendant within his property and he will be doing Razor's ass wiping in exchange for Razor rolling him to play £.10/.20nl.

He also does coaching of any game/limits at $750 an hour. pm me if interested.

Intentionally Blank

My gran passed away on saturday morning. Don't really want to write too much about it other than to say RIP. She battled several illnesses the last 15 years and never really had an immune system after chemotherapy years and years ago so hopefully now she can finally rest.

On the friday night before, I met the Amafish and Ant (fellow bloggers in the list on my right) at the Empire in Leicester Square. They were both playing the tournament but I didnt make it in time as I had just come from visiting my nan at about 8. I had things on my mind obviously so wasn't on the best of form though it wouldn't have shown too much as we didn't get to share a table. Hopefully we can do it again properly where we share a cash table whilst I take their money from them. Me and Ant both lost about £200 each (despite my £600 all in coup with KK vs AA where I hit a K vs the one guy on the table I least wanted to bust).

When I've had a spare hour or two in the last day or so I've been playing $1/2 cash and I'm prob up about £1700.

Don't know when I'll next update but gl all.

End of the run good....

Dropped like 11 buy ins tonight. Mixture of bad play and bad luck. If I reviewed the session I would probably say it was definitely more of the former than the latter. Will prob have the rest of the week off. Hopefully one of my stakes can ship me some money in the meantime before I'm ready to get back to the grind.

I've had quite a lot of interest in the deals I can help people with on sites so will be helping a few people get set up this week. As always leave me a comment if you want more details.

In much more important news one of my grandmothers is really unwell at the moment. She has throat cancer and my parents went to see her tonight. Unfortunately it doesn't look like she has much left and is deteriorating quickly so I'm going to see her tomorrow.

Hope you all run a bit better than I have just lately.

Last few nights

Played a live £80 donkament on friday night. I only lasted 5 hands after the first break.[ ] I didn't arrive 5 minutes before the first break! Sigh lol.

I played cash and after raising to £10 in the £2/2 pl game with KK i was repopped to £30. Lovely jubbly, I moved in and he called for his stack with A10 and duly hit the turn. I asked the dealer if we were playing blackjack or poker. I can't help jabs like that when someone donks so hard. After that I raised pretty much every hand (I was already raising more than anyone anyway)and it wasn't too long before I had won my £100 back and was up £140. I left when one of my mates got knocked out and we went for something to eat. When we got back my other mate was already sitting in the cash game and I was too tired to sit. I don't really like sitting in games where friends are playing either. So i went and watched TV (and fell asleep) when I went halves with another mate in cash and he made me a nice ton while I was dozing off.

Yesterday was a bit shit though. I decided to have an MTT session online for a bit of a change to cash. I ran up big stacks in everything but not changing gears cost me in most and I was soon 1 tabling the $35k on ipoker. 1385 runners and I was always around the top few dozen.

With 100 left I played a pot I'd like opinions on. Blinds are 1600/3200 with an ante of 200 (I think). My stack is 85k. It passes round to the small blind with 42k, who makes up. I check my J8. Flop comes 10,9,4. SB checks and I bet 4.5k. He bumps it to 14.5k and I move in. He calls with K10 and I hit an 8 on the turn but brick the river.

Should I raise pre? Check behind the flop? Pass when he c-raises? Be interesting to know what people think of this.

Anyway y-day I finished down -£450.

Will be grinding cash today.

From Rakeback to VIP!!

Since my last post I've had a few people ask about the VIP deal I'm on - and not just in the comments too(honoured to know people actually read this blog!).

I've moved off the William Hill Skin where I was formerly on a 30% rakeback deal to be put on to a new VIP deal with my new site. This gets me the equivalent of over 49% back every month.

Two people recommended the person who sorted this deal out to me and have used him for years. So far I've been more than happy as he makes everything very simple and easy to ensure you earn more cash prize monies per month! So far three of my mates have also got on board and are very happy. One was formerly a member of Will Hill's VIP Black club which offered 38% net rakeback to its highest raking members - obviously this pisses all over that and is NOT dependant on your volume of play. Pretty sick imo. You will be earning the equivant of over 49% and under 55% each month irrespective of whethere you play one hand or you have a 300 tabling $1/2 robot.

I know this sounds like some sort of sales pitch but it really isnt. Since I've become a lot more nitty with my bankroll I've realised the difference this makes each week/month and year and think any way to maximise profit is crucial to us poker fish!

I can help you sort this if you like so either leave your email in the comments box and I'll send over my msn to get the ball rolling. Feel free to ask questions.

gl in the meantime!

A piece of everyone!

This week I've gone a bit crazy on the staking front and have dished out around £1k buying pieces of people.

Don't want to say who incase they'd rather not have it splashed on my blog but some talented players so hopefully one can ship me something one motherfucking time!!!

Also invested £400 in someone on Blonde poker in a STT long term staking thing so hopefully that goes well.

If anyone wants a better rakeback deal on any site please let me know. The guy from my affiliate is fucking good and is on msn every day to help with anything. It's like increased rakeback with a mentor thrown in for free! Anyone who's interested pm me on blonde (GreekStein is my username) or write a comment here and I'll get back to you. One stipulation is that I'd not want anyone who is currently playing on the blonde cardroom to move sites but if you play anywhere else I'm almost certain he can help you with an improved deal.

I haven't actually put in any table hours this week as I end up playing til late and am tired the next day which isn't good for work so I'm just gonna be hitting the tables hard at the weekends and hitting the gym hard during the week.

Going to watch Prizefighter with the lads tonight in Bethnal Green as got some free tickets - think its on Sky this evening at 10ish.

Hasta luego
