Saturday Session Update
Decided to play Saturday because I woke up kinda ill and I didn't want to go to a different city and get really drunk, yet have to go to the toilet every 10 minutes :/ But meh. Last time I cancelled plans to play poker the gods rewarded me.
Graph for the session:
I'm pretty happy with the results obv. but having the session cut short by lag was pretty annoying. I was running really good and had a bunch of stacks but had to sit out on a bunch of tables and ended up coming 14th in 44t and 2r 2x turbo, both with a bunch for a win. Luckily I managed to get 2nd in a 35 180 and 3rd in a 27 tko to make it a pretty good day. I'm still awaiting an email from stars to confirm any refunds but I really doubt I'll get any compensation.
The good news however is that I decided to play today despite the possible lag and everything ran super smooth apart from the actual results. I think I dropped about 1.6k (will have to wait till tomorrow for a graph). Nothing really happened for me today...FTd a 15 180 and came 4th I think. Had loads in a 55 regspeed and a 75 regspeed but I lost flips for loads in both and ended up unregging due to a combo of me getting slightly annoyed (still pretty pissed about the lag the day before) and my brother organising a film and takeaway night for Mother's Day (in the UK).
I'll update with interesting hand histories in the future when I don't experience freaking lag
Pokerstars seem to be keeping really quiet about the subject atm in the MTTc thread which I think is a huge fail by them. We should be working together to put an end to this.
In other news, I've decided to add Pokerstars.FR back into my daily grind. The only problem with playing there is that the deposit limits are ridic. small so it takes a while to get a meaningful amount on there but I played a couple of mtts on there today and the schedule seems to have really improved to I look forward to grinding there again. My SN there is 'VaVaVoomXII' fwiw.
I'm gonna have a day off tomorrow. Just going to hit the gym, possibly see a girl I've been speaking to (bargs) and then go play 7-a-side football (soccer) for a team I just joined.
football. Was quite sad to see what happened to Fabrice Muamba (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/17419654
). He basically just collapse on the pitch during a game and it looked quite serious but it's nice to see how the football world has pulled together in support and I hope his condition improves asap.
Thanks for reading and good luck guys :')
