I know short “I’m still alive”-posts are lame, but here’s another one. Was able to squeeze in some matches during the long evenings in cologne. Nothing spectacular, win some lose some. Since then no action, too busy travelling to/from munich and regular work…poker is def on the backburner these days for me…at least playing wise…

Poker oh poker it’s all skill

….start with the worst hand and go all-in. 😆

I’m back biotches, even if it’s just for a quick rant. Played the first poker in a week and started off nicely. Won my first two HU SnGs and then it went south….waaaaay south…like below the equator south. I mean, it was just brutal and after a few crushing defeats I was not 100% on my game anymore. I guess I payed off a little too much, but honestly, how can it be that my opponent has got the me crushed post-flop all the time while he’s waaaay behind preflop (examples: would be T8o against my QQ (the first and only time I got action on any big hand) sure enough the flop is ten high, sure enough we get it in…sure enough he has trips when all is said and done, or the good ole turned gutshot straight calling the preflop raise and the big flop bet with the gutterball only, etc etc). In the end I couldn’t take it anymore so I logged off with a bad taste in my mouth.

I guess real poker content, filled with screenshots, will have to wait a few days…I’m off to cologne and then munich on business trips…so it could be a while…until then gl at the tables and remember: the worst-tilter isn’t the cold-deck, it’s your reaction to it…

Poker is disgustingly sick sometimes

As you may have noticed my poker adventures were kept to a minimum in recent weeks. Today I climbed back into the saddle and hit the tables hard. The only bad thing was that they hit me back even harder. I’m not going to start an excessive rant here, I’ll just say that I lost every single key hand going in anywhere from 70% to 90% favourite. It was FUGLY and in the end it was only fitting that my opponent hit his three outer, again for all the marbles. So I logged off to write this little mini-post to tell you that I’m still alive and playing poker, although not that regularly anymore, especially not late-night as my new job requires me to get up in the morning 😉

So I’m outta here to watch the Klitschko fight…gl at the tables everyone….
