Down just down

played like a retard over the weekend, the ending flurry being a $210 HU sit and go (hyper turbo obv)

i lost when i got in 1100 of my starting stack with J8 on a 567 board but the villains A7 held up.

i was drunken.

few days off, need to think of a plan, work out my goals etc, long way back to £500 unless i run hot, will have to drop down in stakes as my roll is roughly £150...

2 up, 1 down

Won a quick £200, withdrew as per my plan then lost £100.

lost a pot headsup in holdem when this awful player called my 4 bet shove with J10 to hit a jack against my AQ

and then i get 2 outed here against the table spazz to really twist my mind.

Close to a Live Adventure

so last night i had satted into a 80 euro freezeout with the top 5 players getting a 1300 euro package to the ipops live tournment held in Barcelona...despite two hours of late registration there was still a fat overlay with the packages worth 11k but the 85 entrants meant that only 6k was put into the pot.

Long story short i got onto the final table in good nick in about 3rd in chips, but i bled a few chips away and when we got to bubble time there was one redic chip leader with 200k, one person on 70k and 4 of us on 30-40k. what this then meant was that the chip leader was chucking his chips round and stealing every pot, it went on for about 3 orbits and there was even an all in and call, but the short stack's K7 hit quad kings against the chip leaders optimistic qj off suit.

Anyways the sad end to the tale is that eventually i defended a blind steal with KQ caught a king and ended up all against the obvious steal, but alas he actually had hid a set of fives and i was bubble boy. I then had the pleasure of all the players typing in see you in Barcelona etc which really was a kick in the balls.

In Better news im £116 up in two days since i "reset" my bankroll to £500. I'll withdraw £100 tomorrow and that will be the first withdrawal in my target for £3k.


Monday, 21 May 2012


After a lot of thought ive decided to withdraw down to £500 and from now on just play with a roll of £500 and  withdraw £100 when i hit £600, i know many people will disagree with this but its still 50 buyins as my roll and it will discourage me from playing higher buyins like £50 headsup full stacked....

also i lie a little as i didnt actually withdraw the money. I had £300 of it invested on Bayern to win the champs league, i cant describe the feeling when Drogba connected with that header, so sick, there first corner 88 mins into the game.


anyways ive reset the stats on the side and i want to find a progress bar as ideally i want to withdraw £3k in a year..... thats the plan. (

also sick i play some poker at work, doing some tourneys for my dad, got to heads-up with a 40k to 160k deficit, totally turn it on its head and get him down to 25k when these two beauts happen

Weekend Off

Feel mentally drained poker wise so instead of taking advantage of a rare night out for the wife, i wont be hitting the juicy as fuck Friday night tables. gonna chill with my two younger girlies (Jasmine 5, Melina 2) and watch a barbie film and once they're in bed im gonna play the ps3 and have a few cans...

Poker wise i guess volume equals profit as im now over £900 and ive withdrawn £40 to pay for some drinks as im out for the champs league final.

Havent decided if im cheering for Chelsea or Bayern yet, as a gooner there are plus sides for both teams winning, i think that if Chelsea get Luiz and Cahill fit they may have a chance and then ill lump on £20 to confirm my allegiances.

I had £100 on them to win the Fa Cup final and it was one of the biggest buzzes ever when that final whistle blew!!

hope you all have good weekends at the tables, with your families, or drinking with your friends!

Nearly Blew It...

Damn that was a heavy day, i was taking a right beating at the tables, had some serious sick luck and then the worst thing that could ever happen happened.

By Tilt Breaker software wasnt working.

Damn, no auto stop loss but luckily the table limits were working.

However that didnt stop me playing £50 buyins on tables and just basically putting myself in shit or bust mode.

Luckily i survived and with the rake being paid as it gets released i actually had a plus £75 day

bankroll now £775 (only deposited £700 onto Bet Fred)

hand of the day

Pastures new

So after a few decent months on Winner poker i have decided to move to pastures new.... im not getting a better deal as i had 55% RB on winner but im getting the same deal but on a much bigger site in Bet Fred Poker.

After being stung on Full Tilt this is a big thing for me and i would hope a leading UK bookmakers will offer me security as well as integrity of the games.

Will take a few days i assume to withdraw and redeposit and the saddest thing is that i lose the cute name DamnDuckDuck and im using a horrific name DoubleDonk77.

Ah well maybe its that horrific people will spite call with 4 high or something.

i can wish.

Friday, 11 May 2012


Played for like 7 or 8 hours yesterday, ran like pooo, played like poo and have carried on the same standard in a cheeky session first thing this morning. makes me feel a bit like this.....

Think i need a break as although i might pat myself on the back for getting loads of volume in, the downside is that it can kind of consume me and i dont react well to bad beats, especially a couple of dirty one outers which happened yesterday. net damage isnt too bad, lost like £60 and probabaly raked about £80

Luckily the mrs isnt working tonight so i have a good excuse to not play, and i already have a nice day planned for Saturday so hopefully i can put my losing streak to the back of my mind and come back refreshed for a decent session maybe Monday..

DamnDuckDucks Graph

Just taken off my filter to see my lifetime graph for the userid DamnDuckDuck and it looks pretty decent !!

you can add about half of that profit back in as rakeback as well (anyone know how to show it on a PT3 graph?)

since my withdrawal i have struggled, basically won and lost won and lost, but last night i had a breakthrough and am now up £70 for the week, £348 for the month and £709 since the restart of me playing.

extremely happy at that, also have to give myself a pat on the hand for volum, i played 35 hours in April but in May ive already logged 25 hours and its only the 9th!!

*edit as posting a day late, just had another rakeback payment of £83!!!  bankroll now £774 and it would of been over £1k if i didnt make withdrawals - going so well hope i can keep it up and cope when one of those dreaded downswings comes!!

Monday, 7 May 2012


Finally got my rakeback payment a week late, it was a sizeable £67 which is on par with what i have been earning at around £30 a week, however despite also winning the biggest hand to date i now hava a bankroll of £600 as ive had to make a sizeable withdrawal to cover costs of basically my first caner weekend in months as i went out Friday and Saturday!

this doesnt happen much so hopefully i can continue on grinding onwards to the £1k mark where withdrawals will be standard.

heres the biggest hand to date at $83.45 pretty standard stuff as BB was the usual spazz playing every hand, i mean raising pre from that position  with 8 9 10 4 is just laughable really and he gets what he deserves lol

1st of the month Boom

had a great day yesterday winning £120!! the majority of it came from literally 2 hands seconds after sitting down, i double up first hand basically to a stealer who hit a flush draw and didnt hit vs my two pair and then .........................
bankroll now £670 and rakeback overdue for this week so could push on over £700.... WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

April Review

Have to say im pretty happy with how its gone on my return to the virtual felts. I feel like a bit of a poker bum, stuck on the riverbed playing my £10 buyins which is nearly always shortstacking but its working, maybe when the bankroll is up to a good figure i can start buying in full and playing a proper game. so to recap I started with £200 on the 1st and I exit the month with £550, Omaha profits of £300, rakeback of £60 set back by some small No Limit Hold'em losses, and i didnt play a single tourney which i should remedy as i know mtts on ipoker are soft as fuck. graphs etc here
ive finally stopped the time consuming Fifa 12 Ultimate team (selling off my team for like £200+ on ebay)so i should be able to put a lot more hours in at the juicy european evening times. would love a repeat month which would have me right up close to £1k and when i reach that mark ill have a decision to make for the future but will have to think about that later.. Cheers Daly
