The weather has certainly improved while we been here being 2-3' warmer than sunny old England. Yesterday We went for a walk round the shops in O'connell Street and found a Bureau where we could get 1.07 euro's to the £. Dublin is very busy with tourists, talking to taxi drivers this seems to be all year round at the moment with stag and hen parties and cheap shopping, did I say "Cheap Shopping"...

Picture above of Molly Malone's statue on Grafton Street.

Last night Edward wanted to stay in the Hotel and play on his computer, so me and Andrea went to the Sporting Emporium Casino in South Anne Street, just off Grafton Street. Andrea has a 100% record of cashing here with 1 visit and a 2nd place for around 1200euro about 18 months ago. We settle into the 10euro rebuy and some silly fool put the poker on tv which featured yours truly, this was obviously a distraction to the other players as at the break I had 40% of the chips in play with everyone wanting to mix it up with me.


15 runners paid down to 3 spots, Andrea goes out third for 100e and I get heads up, I call a raise pre-flop with Q-2 spades, flop comes down Q 2 7 all clubs, I bet 10k here to get re raised all in, I have him covered leaving me 4500 if I lose, I make the call and he flips over 2 clubs for the flopped flush, no queen or 2 to help me and I am all-in blind next hand. I exit 2nd picking up 150e with the victor pocketing 250e.

The Sporting Emporium Casino if ever you get the chance to visit is very plush and inviting although I would give the restaurant a miss.

Off to the Dublin Zoo today.
