LAST WEEK'S GAMES 

REDTOOTH LEAGUE GAME 

THE THURSDAY GAME I FINISHED 9TH IN THE MAIN GAME . I THEN WENT ONTO PLAY CASH GAME AND FLUNG AWAY 20 QUID LIKE IT WAS MONOPOLY MONEY THURSDAY WASN'T A GOOD NIGHT POKER WISE .

FRIDAY NIGHT HOMEGAME

WELL I'M HAPPY TO SAY I PLAYED A LOT BETTER THAN LAST WEEKS FRIDAY GAME NO BUBBLE BOY FOR ME THIS TIME .

WE PLAYED 2 GAMES I FINISHED 3RD IN THE FIRST GAME FOR £30 AND THEN FINISHED RUNNER UP (2ND) IN THE SECOND GAME FOR £40 . IT WAS A GREAT GAME IT WAS PRETTY MUCH ACTIONY ALL THE WAY THROUGHOUT , WE HAD AN ALL IN THE FIRST HAND 2 PEOPLE WITH STRAIGHTS ONE HAVING THE IDIOT END AND THE OTHER HAVIN THE NUT NUT BABY .

PLAY WAS REALLY GOOD THERE WASN'T MUCH BLUFFING GETTING THROUGH , IT WAS MOSTLY BIG PAIR GOING UP AGAINST BIG PAIR PREFLOP OR THE NUTS GETTING FLOPPED FOR SOME LUCKY SODS , I NEVER FLOP THE NUTS WELL I HAVE BUT NOT OFTEN ENOUGH FOR MY LIKING HAHA . THE GAMES LASTED UNTIL 5 IN THE MORNING HAVING STARTED AT 8 THE PREVIOUS NIGHT SO IT CAN TAKE  A LOT OUT YOU IF YOU AREN'T MENTALLY UP FOR IT.

SO ALL IN I MADE A PROFIT OF £50 PLUS HAD A CRACKING NIGHT OF POKER CANNY WHACK THE FRIDAY GAME .

AFTER GETTING A GOOD COUPLE OF RESULTS ON FRIDAY I WAS REALLY UP FOR THE REGIONALS FINAL THROUGH IN EDINGBURGH ON THE SUNDAY . SO WHEN SUNDAY FINALLY CAME I HADN'T SLEPT WELL AT ALL PROBABLY HAD ABOUT 4 HOURS IF I'M LUCKY NOT IDEALPREPARATION FOR A TOUGH DAY OF POKER  AHEAD .

SUNDAY

REDTOOTH REGIONALS FINAL SOUTH SCOTLAND

WE ARRIVED IN EDINGBURGH JUST AS THE TOURNAMENT WAS STARTING I TOOK MY SEAT HAD A GLANCE ROUND THE TABLE AND HAD A LOOK AT THE OPPOSITION ' I HAD 1 DRUNK GUY , A HUSBAND AND WIFE WHO THE DRUNK GUY TOOK TO CALLING THE HUSBAND SIMON ACES TRUMPER DUE TO HIM HAVIN A BALDY LOL ,AND THEN WE HAD 1 GUY WHO I HAVE PLAYED WITH BEFORE WHO I KNOW IS A GOOD HARD PLAYER , AND THEN THERE WAS A DUDE WHO THOUGHT HE HAD A STRAIGHT WITH FOUR CARDS ALSO DRUNK LOL, THEN THERE WAS THE SILENT ONE WHO NEVER SAID A THING AT ALL BUT THOUGHT IT WAS OKAY TO BURP N FART LIKE HE WAS SITTING IN HIS OWN LIVING ROOM.

I SOON BUSTED NOT LONG INTO IT WE CAN ALL MAKE EXCUSES BUT IN ALL FAIRNESS I PLAYED REALLY BADLY I COULDN'T GET MY HEAD INTO THE GAME . 

I NEVER PREPARED WELL AT ALL WHICH IS THE ONE BIG THING I WILL TAKE AWAY FROM THIS EXPERIENCE FAILING TO PREPARE IS PREPARING TO FAIL .

AFTER GETTING SOMETHING WARM TO DRINK AN EAT I FELT A LOT BETTER AN STAYED TO RAIL MY FRIEND MICHAEL , HE WAS PLAYING REALLY WELL AN SITTING NICELY WITH A GOOD CHIPSTACK , WHEN THE BREAK CAME I DECIDED TO DEAL AT ONE OF THE TABLES TO GIVE ME SOMETHING TO KEEP ME OCCUPIED AND STAVE AWAY THE BOREDOM AND TILTYNESS AT WATCHING AND NOT PLAYING , SOMEONE BUSTED THE OUTER TABLE AND MICHAEL WAS MOVED TO MY TABLE AND THE FIRST HAND I DEALT HIM ACES LOL CUE JEERS OF FIX LOL , MICHAEL GOT THE DOUBLE UP AND KNOCKED OUT POOR SIMON ACES TRUMPER THE NAME STUCK ALL DAY HAHAH , THE NEXT NOTABLE HAND CAME QQ FOR A LADY IN THE BB ,MICHAEL UTG CALLED HER ALL IN WITH POCKET 7S AND HIT THE 7 ON THE TURN TO BURST ANOTHER PLAYER , PLAY WENT ON FOR ANOTHER HOUR OR SO UNTIL WE WERE DOWN TO THE UNOFFICIAL FINAL TABLE OF TEN AND AT THIS POINT A CASINO DEALER TOOK OVER THE REIGNS OF DEALING SO BACK TO THE RAIL I WENT TO CHEER ON MY FRIEND .

THE PAYOUTS WERE AS FOLLOWS 1ST PLACE TRIP TO VEGAS . 2ND £200 3RD £100 4TH £80 5TH £6O 6TH £50 7TH £40 8TH £20 

IT TOOK TEN MINUTES FOR THE BUBBLE TO BURST AND GET DOWN TO 7 PLAYERS AFTER A 3 WAY ALL IN , AT THIS POINT MICHAEL WAS DOING WELL NICELY STACKED ABOUT 2ND IN CHIPS , HITTING THE HANDS MAKING THE CORRECT PLAYS AND  MAKING THE LAYDOWNS .

IT WAS REALLY A CASE OF FOLD OR SHOVE POKER BY THIS POINT AND MICHAEL MANAGED TO NAVIGATE THROUGH TO THE LAST 3 BY GETTING THE HANDS JUST WHEN HE NEEDED THEM MOST WAKING UP WITH AA ,JJ , POCKET 10S AND AK SUITED A FEW TIMES . SO AFTER A QUICK CIGARETTE AND A LITTLE PEP TALK WE WHERE BACK IN TO PLAY 3WAYS FOR THE TROPHY AND THE VEGAS TRIP .

MICHAEL WAS PLAYING REALLY GOOD STEALING THE BLINDS GETTING CHIPPED UP AND TOOK THE LEAD UNTIL THE 2 OTHER PLAYERS AT THE TABLE WENT ALL IN AND GAVE THE CHIP LEAD TO THE MAN FROM LENNOXTOWN (SORRY FORGOT HIS NAME ) AND KNOCKED OUT A LADY FROM KILMARKNOCK SHE TOOK £100 AS A CONSOLATION PRIZE AND A GOOD ROUND OF APPLAUSE FROM THE RAIL .

HEADS UP PLAY LASTED NO MORE THAN 20 MINUTES WHEN THE FINAL HAND CAME  MICHAEL 45 SPADES AGAINST KJ WE SAW THE FLOP IT CAME Q23 AN ALL IN AND A CALL THE TURN 7 RIVER J AND THAT WAS IT ALL OVER 2ND PLACE TO MY FRIEND AND A WELL DESERVED WIN TO THE OTHER GUY CANT TAKE NOTHING AWAY FROM HIM OR MICHAEL THEY BOTH REALLY DESERVED THAT PRIZE TRIP TO VEGAS BUT MICHAEL WAS REALLY HAPPY WITH £200 AND KNOWING HE PLAYED OUT HIS SKIN JUST WAS'NT TO BE ON THE DAY FOR HIM ..

OH AND THE CHAMPION GAVE US A RUN HOME BACK TO GLASGOW FROM EDINGBURGH WHICH WAS REALLY GOOD OF HIM .A TRUE CHAMP IN MY EYES FOR THAT GESTURE OF GOODWILL SO THANKS FOR THAT AND UNTIL NEXT TIME CHAMP GOOD LUCK IN VEGAS..
