Oh no it's fine don't worry. It's just funny.

When mike created the topic, I imagined it'd be people posting like on my uni poker forum saying

"I was playing a cash table 25c/50c and i did this ....."

or "I was playing the $20 tourney on stars...." etc etc

But then you come in with your fb stuff and it's just funny how excited you get about it, that's all lol

Woop playing for fun or for money? You should play for £1 each or something. Good luck!

Poker nights with mates are the best. Low stakes, no pressure to win loads as there's so few of you (maybe enough to pay for the drinks after) and good banter and a relaxed atmosphere.

Played in a few different games, with 5 or 6 people where winner bought the drinks for the night out after or, the night has been poker and we've sat with a few beers, snacks, music and cards. Awesome.

Need to get a poker night set up at mine.... got a few good sized tables I could just stick a cloth on..... so much more space than my mates dingy student flats! lol Need to get the parents on holiday!

AK is more powerful than KK though. One's an assault rifle and the other is a submachine gun but whatever you do please don't bring a BB into the equation. What we talking about again? doh

big slick is surely worse than kk
i even got a bigger case with more chips

A flush of diamonds? Is a flush when you have five cards of the same suit?

Well no big UKSPC win for me! lol Played pretty well and laster 7 hours into the tournament, which is the longest i've ever gone before. One moment of sheer madness meant I was out. Totally unexplainable loss of concentration to be honest. Very very very annoyed at myself for that. But **** happens, I did play very well over those 7 hours prior to the last hand and am overall satisfied with my poker progress. Looking forward to next year already! Was immense to have a whole tournament professionally dealt! Very Happy

My fav hand (A9) I got 4 times and it won 4 times, which is fantastic. Only played 2 bad hands the whole tournament, got pushed off another and one SHOCKINGLY bad hand at the end. Won about 30 pots though, which was probably above average.... got a lot of play for my money anyway, aggressive play at the right time is definitely the way forward for my game. Not going to describe my last hand, because it'll make me look like a tit lmao

7 hours is really good. And yeah, having professional dealers is great! What was the buy-in and how did you place?

And you might as well tell us how you bowed out? Everyone has shockers!

It was £30+3 and I placed roughy...... 40th/107 on the 2nd day. 108 started on day 1. So in theory between 60-80/215 overall. Should have finished top 40 but never mind.

And my shocker...... sigh...... ok.

I'm sitting UTG +1 with a stack of 17100 and the blinds at 400/800.

UTG raises to 2500 total, I look down at 10hQh and MISTAKE 1 - I call.
Button, SB fold
BB raises to 8000 total,  UTG folds, MISTAKE 2 - I call.

Flop 6310 all spades.  

BB bets 7000 and for some reason, despite knowing I had 17k pre-flop, I totally mis-count my chips and think i have more than 9100, somehow convince myself that going all in is a good idea, and she obviously completes for a mere 2100 more. I KNOW she has AA or KK and indeed, she flips KK. No Q or 10 to help me out and that's me gone.

Stupid, stupid stupid stupid. Horrendous play. Should have folded instantly.
