tighter than a tree's stump. FACT

yes. i have been playing tighter.

defining 'tight' is somewhat difficult. raising with K3sooted from utg, isn't probably what most people refer to as tight, but it is for me. at least i've stopped playing actual junk hands. also bean folding a lot more. a couple of folds i should have made.
one was against a flopped straight and also the same person who hit runner runner quads against me.
went from $120 to $250 then lost it all in about 10 hands.
was also losing on the other tables, but made a nice profit eventually. many thanks to the person who rererereraised all in with AK at a cash table. lol. i had aces and this time they held up.

one interesting hand i played.

aces on the button, raise to 4*bb. bb calls. (he/she/it is new to the table.)
flop is 865 of diamonds. i have the ace.
bet half pot, he goes all in for another 70bb! the pot is only 16bb.

im thinking perhaps the 7 of diamonds with a pair?
so i call, don't see how i can fold and he has 88 for top set.
11 outs all miss for me and i lose a chunky pot.

so anyway, playing tight leads to boring blogs because i fold when i should, raise when i should, and i only bluffed about thrice on the river in 2 hours playing 3 tables.

decided to up it to three tables, since whilst there is ridiculous overlap, i can play less stupid hands and it seemed to work to day with a nice profit for the first time in 2007.

last three days have been profitable and hopefully i'm playing properly again.
will push on for the rest of the month, get back to cash, see if i can break even at least, and bla bla bla.
harder now as i am out during the days and out a few evenings a week. have to get up early too (about 8 o cock every day!) so no late night fishing either.

maybe i'll have cheese sandwiches for lunch tomorrow. again.

no i have a linker to this blog maybe ill write more often and more interesting things.

like my dentist appointment coming up. oh no, wait i said more interesting.

my meating of tony blair. yeh. he's taller than me. you wouldn't know it from watching the telly. YOU wouldn't know it because you don't know how tall i am. so you're gonna have to trust me. or not. i don't care. i'm going to get a drink now. a pint of ribena methinks.
