A week of poker

I'm about to pick up the missus from Gatwick and have just logged off after another short session.

I ended up using my week of freedom mostly on the piss with mates so didn't play as much as I intended.

Just two session, three tabling multi table SNG and tourneys.

In the first I cashed in one, coming in 300-odd out of 2000 for a very small score.

My bustout hand was AQo versus J9s, I called from the big blind to an obvious bully boy but the hand didn't stand up despite flopping a Q.

Here are a couple of hands - the first when I was caught bluffing half way through. The second was a semi-bluff that worked.

Tonight I played three more SNGs, going deep in all three but only cashing in one - a $7 180-man turbo on Stars.

I ended up third for around $140. I was chip leader with around 40 to go but went card dead and tightened up near the bubble. I was either side of two bullies and couldn't cope really.

I scraped across the bubble near the back and limped onto the final table 8th.

I then trebled up with 10s and was suddenly chipleader again but couldn't see it through.
