    mush is never folding kk pre he was either getting a beer or in the loo

    We do want to play tighter when UTG, but KK just about makes it into our raising range pre here Mushroom. It is scary raising into Maxallys small blind, but we should be raising here regardless as Max will have AA less than 100% of the time

    Dunno if this is an ‘in’ joke , but I read it as as bad timing on loo break. 😊
    I'm different league...

    The Late Late Show With James Corden is currently on SkyComedy (Ch121).

    That's an oxymoron, surely? Or is it a paradox?

    I should know, but I don't.

    We are not talking big numbers but, since returning post-Christmas, steady profits have been achieved.

    After six winning months from seven (with the losing month basically level; -1%), my horrendous runs meant I ended 2020 with three consecutive losing months, however, I've clawed back around 25% of those Oct-Christmas losses in the past week or so.

    In all forms of gambling, long-term profits are always a result of peaks and troughs. The key is lose as less as possible when descending. November and December were, by far, my quietest months with regards to total stakes. Had I played more, it is likely I would've put a huge dent in my 2020 profits and undone my hard work over the summer.

    Although consistent form has returned, I still suffer with hunger/motivational issues. Even when happy with my game I have nights when I simply cannot be bothered. I take my hat off to all those who put the hours in, no matter what.

    Just enjoyed a deep run in the Sunday Major Freeroll. However, I suffered from carddeadedness when we reached the shoving stage and, as a result, could only finish in 9th place.

    This has been a common theme, for me, in MTTs of late. Decent runs without landing a big prizes. Though, unlike November and Decemeber an accumulation of small cashes, bounties and successful spin-ups have kept me in the black lately.

    Should Ian "Bouncebackability" Dowie commentate on poker, he would undoubtedly use "carddeadedness".

    When getting heads-up in the Mid Ex, I thought my long wait for a MTT win was over.

    I held the chip lead for 90% of the battle but could not get over the line.

    I somehow managed to lose from this sport (5 x chip lead, opponent holding just 4 bb's)...

    I'm fine with the over-bet on the flop, as I am never passing - if I bet small and get called, then I am check-raising all-in on the turn, or something along those lines.

    Bounties bring £10 profit, though.

    Out the Main Avenger soon after, when cruelly punished for making up the small blind.

    Lovely session so far.

    Little bit of NLHE spin-up - run poorly.
    Tiny bit of PLO cash - run poorly.
    Played the 6k £33 - running poorly (in for £63).
    Played the Mini....

    More magic, after a long period of carddeadness, I win a nice pot with AKs and somehow build my stack to 10k.

    I could shove pre, but let's do this "as played".

    Once I am called on the flop, I know he has an Ace, obviously - so I am done, unless I ping the turn.

    It doesn't matter if I bet the turn or river, no one is folding.

    Spiteful stuff.
