I got blind sighted by the top pair and high kicker that i ignored the obvious strength he was showing. Notice the pre flop raise which is small to entice the call and then the less than pot size raise to entice the re raise all in. I am unhappy with this but hey ho, im still in the £6K rebuy and hoping to do well in that. Will kepp you update thru the night.


  1. hi ant,
    just been reading thru yr blog, is very interesting and the fact u are making a profit already puts u in the top 7% of online players so u don't have far to go m8.
    oh and i wouldn't bother taking den's advice and railing me, my recent play has been terrible, not winning owt on crypto

  2. Hey Steve

    Everyone goes thru a slump steve as you would know but its when you let the bad luck effect your gameplay, that's when you need to chill out and start again with the basics. To be honest with you, chasing what you were as "ultgamb", i bettered myself massively trying to be a noted player on hills. Turns out i am not that noted yet and will never be bigger than "ulgamb" lol. I'm ok though if i continue to win at the rate i am at the moment lol.

    It's great to be able to chat to you about gameplay while we're at the tables and keep on commenting on any of the posts i make because i take your opinion very highly and denlizliz if you're reading this, same goes for you!
