EPT & Holiday

So where to start, the lack of recent posts is only partially down to my laziness. Went to London and railed moorman to a bubble in the WSOPE which was pretty brutal as he ran KK into AA vs Johnny lodden who is a notoriously aggressive player. We then all played the EPT which for me personally couldn’t have gone worse, never got going really, had a set busted early, made some bad bluffs and eventually making a dodgy hero call on the river to bust. One to write off and forget about ASAP.

Got back home and played online on the Sunday and it was the usual story to be honest, had several chances at a big score but nothing materialised. The closest I came was an 8th place finish in the pokerroom 350k gtd for $8800 when it was $110k ftw, :-(. I lost 2 pretty big races just before the final table that put a real dent in my chances and didn’t catch a break early on the final and that was that.

So after another frustrating Sunday, me, moorman and allinstevie all decided to go on holiday somewhere, no poker, no laptops etc.... This for me has been overdue for a long time. We looked around to see where the weather was good and eventually decided on ayia napa. Just got back yesterday, had a great time and really enjoyed the time off poker, not played in 2 weeks!!!! Had some really messy nights usually ended up with us trying to figure out what happened the next day by merging our recollections. Double JD n cokes + sambucas were the main culprits and also led to some stupid bets. During one heavy session me n Stevie had a $5k bet regarding berbatov. I have under 20 goals, Stevie has over 20 and 20 is no bet lol. Obviously the very next game berbatov scores 2 vs Celtic, gg $5k

There was a mini golf course near the hotel and we played 5 times, each time the loser having to pay for dinner that night. I won all 5 so got 5 free dinners, 2 from Stevie and 3 from moorman. Had some cracking steaks etc... and stuck some 150 euro bills in moorman/Stevie’s eye, happy times. Weather was good apart from a bit of rain on the first day and even managed to crawl out of the room occasionally before the sun went in to grab a bit of a tan.

That’s about all for now; just before I went away I was ranked on pocketfives however 2 weeks of not playing has seen me slip off the radar again today. Will start playing again soon but got shit loads of TV shows to catch up on; Heroes, Prison break, Entourage, US office, Family Guy, American dad & Simpsons :-) Some1 recommended a site to me for streaming stuff online called ninja video and I have been impressed so far, check it out.
