    HI C
    My first post on your diary and i wish you the bet of luck. It does seem like one or two guys on the forum have a bad day and respond in a rather terse way, shall we say. If you can deflect that then i'm sure that you will learn a lot from the comments of good players who offer you advce and will probably find your play improving accordingly. Cash, to me, is pretty unknown so i won't be commenting on your hands you'll be glad to know.
    I can fully understand that trying to enjoy the game can be hard when tilt is involved.
    All the best fella and gl for 2013.

    if it is really rubbish then why do you read it?
    what do you expect me to write "dear diary i played poker ...."
    this diary is about my poker so ofcouse it will be based mainly around my hand history and how i'm progressing.

    already when i did the shove i was getting ready to scream in anger so when i saw that king it made me feel sorry for the pocket aces
    it appeared to me after that FH killer card i just totally changed the luck into my favour with just the odd upset. but have manage to £20 today. also for the first time ever i have managed to reach the 500 points mark in less than a month

    what i noticed is this table had a lot a lot of min betting being done as a way which i believe was to try making other villians fold as the first betting villian missed his flop. so i began to find that quite often if i bet 16p then i coud steal it frop them more often than not.
    it start of when i had flush draws raised 4p bets to build the pot, what i found was they folded as soon as i raised even the ones who called the 4p bet.

    Hey craig, good to see you have the courage to follow through with a plan that is based pretty much soleley on your opponents tendencies rather than your cards, keep up the good work.

    not even one card could save this villian


    Any heart on river would of given him the flush fwiw.

    yes but that was because he got his first card on the turn when he shoved on the flop with K high and a raggy rainbow board he needed two cards at the time

    Congrats on passing the £100 mark, well played.

    Goes to show that in the grand scheme of things the beats don't matter too much. As long as you continue to outplay your opponents you'll overcome the luck factor over time.
