Time for a little break!

The Poker Gods are not shining on me at present!

I played a number of tournaments today, where going nicely in each, got hit by a 2 or 3 outer on the river. Recently my luck has not been in, so I am going to ease up over the next week or so.

Tonight I was playing in the £40k my bogey tournament, I had already had a couple of nasty little beats, I am dealt AA in the Small Blind and two people are already all in! Christmas has come early!

ClintonO collected 90 from Side pot #1
Myggebo collected 5535 from Main pot

However, I refuse to moan about bad beats as they do happen.
I am though going to take a little rest from this game. My sole focus is now the EPT Dortmund. I am giving up on the Leaderboard this month and aside from the Highrollers final tomorrow night, I am going to have the week off.

My game is about preparation, I have 25 days ahead of the biggest poker game of my career to date and its time to get ready and right now that means a break.

See you in a little while

Sometimes m8 everything is against you and doing the right thing always ends up being wrong - quite right - break time! Enjoy it and go to Dortmund and make ClintonO a name to remember!

Good Luck m8.
