Thanks for all your kind messages of support yesterday.

I decided yesterday to give a wide berth to the “on-line” game preferring to head up to Leeds and play a live game at the British Masters £220 freeze out.

75 runners with final table 8 getting paid.

I play so fucking solid for 8 hours..

11 players left, 2 tables, 5 & 6  handed

I’m on the Small blind 2000/4000/400ra

Raise on cut off to 16000

Folds to me and I re-raise “all in” for an extra 5k

Big Blind short stack also goes “all-in” for a total of 11,000

Cut off calls the extra..

Cut off has 5 5

Big Blind has 3 5

Me = A A

I am a massive favourite for the hand now with 42 cards in the deck and I can hit 41 of them

x 5 x x x

Bubbled 9th

Don’t you just love the game?

Damn, Very very unlucky. To get so near in a decent comp like that, and to win main event package other day, this is whilst ur runnin bad so there must be some positives to take, when the poker gods do smile on u hopefully u in for a big big result.

Hi man, I can see that you have some great at online and live poker...I would like to invite you to take a look at poker staking if you want to be staked at any live events or some big buy-in tournaments. Don't forget that the WCOOP has already been announced. Take a look at the sticky post on my site www.sharkandfishpoker.com

Best Regards

Hi Steve. Very unlucky with the Leeds comp. Sorry to hear that life's not treating you too well right now. I hope things work out ok for you. As you say, the poker is very addictive, and can easily take over your life. But there is more to life than poker.
Maybe you could try rationing your poker time. ie-every weekend internet free. Every other weekend poker free. That sort of thing.
At the end of the day, it's up to you to try and find the right balance, between the poker and the rest of your life.
I'm not trying to preach. Just offering my honest opinion.
Wishing you All The Best-In poker, and life-Rage.

Eh? Im confused mate.

Should the BB on 35 not bubble it and you get the 9th place?

Or was the board XX53X ?? With no other pair?

Maybe im reading it wrong.
