Bodog: Well, my hot-streak is definitely over. I mean, I’m not losing big or anything, but I’m losing (money). Played 9 HU SnGs after work, won 5 of them. Cool, so far…although I’m still thinking about the four matches I lost…1 was a wrong move by me…that’s cool…but the other three…well, they just sucked. Pushed with the best hand (postflop)..lost to a runner runner straight…pushed with the best hand after the turn…lost to a rivered flush…pushed with the best hand (postflop)…lost to a runner runner flush…and the last one was the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen: I totally outplay my oponent and I’m up 1850/150…I look down at AK…I push…he calls…shows 77…the lucky sevens hold up. Now we’re at 1700/300…next hand I push him in again with Ax vs Kx…King hits on the turn…now we’re at 1400/600….next hand I push him in after the turn…he got the nut flush draw with one card to come…it comes….now we’re at 800/1200…next hand we get the money in again after the flop…my 99 is best…until he pulls the runner runner flush out of his ass on the turn and river…nice play, luckbox!

After footie training I fire up bodog again and as I lose 3 matches in short series I quit…best one was me holding A2…flop comes down A27 rainbow…I bet…he raises…I reraise…he pushes…hmm…I call…he holds? Yup, 22…nice that the case 2 on the flop could make it…

FullTilt: After the bad hold’em run it’s time for a change of scenery…so I fire up the donkey razz tables…weeeee….and boy can the donkeys get pissed off as soon as someone is really playing the game as it should be played (raising at every spot that justifies it)…took down some dough…nothing major…but at least I enjoyed it…

Fresh of yesterday’s win at Red Rock, Phil Gordon was playing this afternoon…at a .05/.10 NL Hold’em table…nice to see Phil donking it up with the guys and gals at this level!

And last but not least, german comedian Stefan Raab is setting up his second celebrity poker night, which will feature german celebrities and one online qualifier. In contrast to the first one this time he’s got PokerStars to join in this time. Freerolls are starting immediately, only available for german players though…hmm…maybe I’ll give it a shot if I find the time this weekend…(100.000$ prize pool doesn’t sound all that bad, although the chances are slim – first you gotta make through the online qualifiers 1:x, then you gotta beat the five other “donkeys” at the tv table…tough….)
