Wowsers! - flopped straight flush. Needless to say i won that one. My opponent bet into me on the flop, turn and river. I reraised the river all in- he thought long and then folded. I should have reraised the turn and raised less on the river but i didn't want to lose business and thought the over bet on the river looked more like a missed flush with a single A/K hearts.

In the past i have flopped quads a few times (2 of which were on particularly good occasions) i have turned a royal flush once and seen the flop, turn and river craete a royal flush on the board (all 5 community cards making up the royal flush). I have also seen the board make a community straight flush but obviously this was slightly less exciting.

I am currently reading Paul Phillips' blog - (see the link on the left) damn theres a lot of it! - i think he has been writing it for 6 years or so. It is quite entertaining. He clearly doesn't give a shit about what anyone thinks of him or his recent poker celebrity status. He can also be very funny, see snippets below;

"I continue to boggle my mind by falling asleep with the television on. This time, I awoke to hear what sounded like an impassioned telephone conversation coming from the kitchen. The speaker was obviously crying, in great emtional pain, but with normal telephone pauses. I thought it was my friend Steve. After about half a minute I realized nobody was at my house, that everyone had left the previous evening.Since Steve isn't exactly the sort to blubber on the phone while at my house, I was in mental wackyland."

Love that "mental wackyland" i feel that i go there frequently


"Dreams. Last night I dreamed I was having a conversation with a fish and a seal. The fish was flopping around out of the water (but didn't seem too unhappy about it.) Still, I guided us all back to the nearby well so the fish could jump in. We continued to discuss the party we were going to attend that evening. Then the seal accidentally dropped his cell phone in the well. I chuckled that it was probably gone for good, but he said it would be retrievable tomorrow when there was more light."

I am also reading "guinness and poker" which is also worth a look if you like an intelligent, amusing and opinionated blog with a look at analysing your game.

In other news i have just recieved payment for some work i did a while back and have word that another cheque is on its way to me which i had forgotten about. This is great news as it affords me another 2 months of sitting about doing nothing. Erm... i mean looking for work. On that note i have an audition next week for a TV pilot, (ooohhh!)it is very hush hush right now but i will reveal more if and when i become involved. Sounds like a wicked project though. I want it - i want it bad! Oh yeah, bad like a mother.

Good luck addicts
