Sweaty Betty


As this is predominantly a Poker blog I better start posting some Poker updates, but not before I just recount the details of a phone call I made to a local fast food outlet earlier on today. I was ordering some munch for myself and a colleague, who wanted a hamburger and chips, to be delivered to the Station.
I hasten to add I do not normally eat takeaways, despite my physique, but today was an exception as I not eaten a morsel all day and I am working from 2pm through until 7am. Trust me, you cannot make this shit up!!
Details of phone call:-
Turkish Bloke-'Hello ****** take way, can I help you?'
Snake-'Yes mate, can I place an order to be delivered please?'
TB-'Of course mate, what would you like?'
Snake-'A chicken tikka wrap please with chili and mint yogurt sauce (for me, healthy option)'
TB-'No problem, anything else?'
Snake-'Yes mate, a hamburger and chips please'
TB-'Sorry we do not do hamburgers'
Snake-'Err, in the menu it states you do cheeseburgers, can you just do one of these and not put the cheese on?'
TB-'Those are beefburgers, not hamburgers, I will have to ask the cook'
Snake-'Is this a wind up?'
I was pissing myself laughing, un-fucking-believable!!
Poker wise, I have been running reasonably well atm but I am fully aware that variance is lurking just around the corner. I have completed 7.5k hands on FT at 50nl, running at 8BB/100hands for a current profit of $600. I feel pretty good about my game atm, making good decisions, and I feel that alot of this can be attributed to advice I have received from Clarkatroid and Gorvacofin, 2 very good cash game players that post on RaiseTheRiver.
I also have had a couple of sweat sessions with my old mate BurnleyMik where I have played 4 tables on FT. We have utilised teamviwer, where Mik can log onto my session and view my tables and also used Skype, so we can discuss the hands as they are played. You would be amazed at how this makes you concentrate and how it helps your game, I recommend this to any serious cash player. It also helps to run like Usain Bolt when you are being watched, eh Mik :)
Played the $55 80k on Stars as part of a syndicate on RTR Friday night, card dead for nearly 2 hours, blinds are 75/150, I have got 16 BBs. I open raise to from UTG+1 with AQs, 2 callers, flop comes AAT, BB checks, I lead for 600 into 1200ish, one fold, BB jams 23BBs and I insta call, he flips AT and its gg me. At the time I thought I was just unlucky but I think this demonstrates I am not very good at Tournies, as perhaps a decent player could get away from this, what do you think?
Also played 2 x 11 buck 45s on FT whilst playing the 80k, final tabled both finishing 8th in one and 2nd in the other for $112.50, so a good night in the end, $250 profit :)
Anyways, I am boring myself now so I am going, quick mention to my pal KnightmareNick, or Gonickgo as he is known on FT, lol what a ghey screen name, try harder fish :)
