Life / Poker Update

Been a while since I posted and don't have much time so will be quick.

Life has been going well, celebrated K's 25th birthday at the weeeknd by staying at Matfen Hall for the evening - 3 course meal, use of spa etc etc. I think she liked it which of course as any bloke knows was the main thing. I've had one round of golf since I've been back and managed to record my worst ever round of 126, including 71 on the back 9. Much improvement needed in the 2 weeks I have before lads golfing weekend in Edinburgh.

Poker has been a bit of a chore too. I'm currently at break even for the month but do actually feel better today than have done in a while with my game. I'll be caning the tables in the next few days hoping to build a roll again as I've had a bit of time off lately that kills the volume and rakeback.

Apologies for being dull as fuck in this post, really shouldn't have bothered but started so thought I'd finish.

Last 2 weeks

After a horrendous end to June poker wise it was nice to get a holiday in to take in some sunshine with the mrs - disappearing to Spain for a cheap holiday doing nothing but sun bathe eat and drink. I wasn't in the best of physical shapes before I left but one week later I feel like I've doubled in size! I tried to go for a run the day after I came back which only proved how unfit I am at the moment, truly embarrassing. I'm going to go for a couple a week and will hopefully improve....

I did (sadly) also manage to watch the football while I was away and probably like pretty much everyone in England was horrified by our performance in the whole of the World Cup. I've heard / read a few rumours flying around about about some disharmony in the camp due to more prima donnas shagging around and it does piss me off. I don't give a shit about their private lives and if we have thrown away our last chance of winning a World Cup for 8 years due to some twats falling out then I'd happily throw all of them in North Sea and start again with the U17's. We're never going to win it in Brazil anyway (4 years time) so might as well start planning for the future. Terry, Lampard, Gerrard, Ferdinand, et al out!!

Rant over. New season starts next month and looking forward to seeing Spurs again. Just hope we get an easy draw in Champions League qualifier ... any Scottish team will do :-)

June P&L

I'll do a quick life update after this, but wanted to post my results for June on here first - mainly to get them out the way so I can move on!

NL Cash: -£360
MTT: £405
Rakeback / Bonus: £550
Live MTT: £36


Basically, a real disappointment. I started the month on fire winning £600 in the first week, then basically broke even for a week before self imploding through bad luck and lack of skill. I've taken a week off due to holiday and now determined to have a good July - we'll see how that goes. Here is my HEM graph for last month anyway....
