i still lurk

dont play much

only 3 claims to fame:

1) won a copy of SS2 while on the internet whilst on operations in Iraq in 2004/5. It never turned up, in fact all 3 promised copies didnt turn up either

2) met Dubai before he was famous, at WSOP 2004 where this overly haired slightly chubby fella offered to share a limo to the hotel with me. met him again about 3 years later at a Duffs home game, was a funny moment as we both went "didnt we meet..........."

3) staked Hawko into a MTT on stars with about 60% of my entire roll. He didnt win. I still run that good

ps, for the golferes out there, i think i added about 20-30 yards to my drive now, still shiit at poker tho

Actually I still remmeber feeling like a di ck at that first Blackpool doo. Took £2k for the weekend then at the casino the first night blew nearly all of it playing 2 x £150 boxes on my own at blackjack. Went out the second night with about £60 lol then when we went in the VIP bit at that stripper place, everyone chipped in £50 except me. Felt like a right stingy g1t but just had no money left lol.

In fact there seems to be a theme going on, as at the next one I did the same again at the blackjack table then blew the rest 5bet bluffing all in preflop on that cash table - I even said what that local had and thought he'd lay his QQ down. Ret@rd station called though and luckily beat my 56s Sad Laugh. Hence having to borrow money off Pommo about 4 hours after getting there lol. Wonder if he's still on the bins......

Also I believe the online companies ruined the game by pushing out the well structured games in favour of turbos/hypers etc losing the skill factor-turning players into gamblers.
