I started playing at 11am this morning and finished at 9pm. I was playing on at least two tables at all times so there are so many hands i played well and badly its tough to remember.
Initially i played the £10/£20 NL Holdem. I fancied something different, and decided i was going to play more aggressively. I got up to £2600 from £1750 and then lost a pot of £2000 ish to Dpommo. He has detailed the hand on his blog so you can look there. It was a strange hand... i think he is one of very few players who make that call. I think he has caught me bluffing at him twice now. Have to check for a secret video camera hidden behind me.
I wasn't feeling tilty and Dpommo soon left. I battled back up to £3600 playing confident aggressive poker when i was involved in very big pot. I called £100 in the BB with Kd6d and saw a flop with two others of QdJd6s. We both checked to Roland who bet £300. I called then the player in between us minimum raised it to £600. Roland passed but it was an easy call for me. The turn was a 3d and i immedietly put him all in for his £2000 and he called with a set of Jacks. No pair up on the river and i was up to over £6000.
No other monster hands but i did manage to win a few more decent size pots so left the table with a £8000 and a £6250 profit.
Then it was time for the PL Omaha. At one point i thought i was destined to lose everything that i had won previously. Won't go into details but i lost three £2000+ pots, one to a four outer, and twice to two outers.
At the moment every blog entry has a happy ending. I turned £2000 into £10000 on the £10/£20 table after playing for about 5 hours. At one point playing six handed i was sat with Robin Keston, John Kabbaj, Mafews, Sargon Ruya and one other. Interesting line up.
I did have one ridiculous hand early that needs a hand history. In the end foe passed for £63 into £2397. I can't say i played it well, but i decided to represent the nuts fourth street. So had no option but to fire another shell in hope more than anything else. My mind boggles at what they both had.

There were loads of hands after that that i bluffed, played well, played not so well and i finished up £3000 at the Omaha overall. So for the day i won £9250.
Leaving for Dublin on Thursday now. Had a nightmare with hotels so have to hop between a few to stay close to the casino. Looking forward to it though, strike while the iron is hot and all that.
