I had to laugh when looking at Sporting Life’s poker news that they have a poll for the world’s greatest poker player. Well who would you expect to see in the top three? I almost choked when I saw the three names nominated… Daniel Negreanu, Devilfish and Chris Moneymaker. Talk about taking things to the extreme...
I am on a mad rush online at the moment which is most welcome after an expensive week at the Vic. I won another $6000 last night to add to the $10000 over the weekend.
Betfair has gone mad again at the moment on the PL Omaha tables. Quite often there is over £1000 to be in the middle before the flop. I watched one hand last night where £3000 was in the middle preflop with 5 players all in.
I have 3 or 4 examples of truly bad play from last night but am only posting this one. I don’t even need to explain this one away……

No slowplaying here due to the flush draw. He whacks in nearly a £1000. Surely I must me up against a big flush draw or smaller trips….. You would never get such a gift in a live cash game like this one.
