Squidoo UK Poker

UK Poker - This is a link to one of my Squidoo pages, this one entirely about UK Poker.

Squidoo is only at the beta version but is "supposed" to become the next Wikipedia. Whether it will or not remains to be seen but no harm in trying I suppose, eh?

Anyway each page on your choosen topic, in this case, UK Poker, is build from a series of segments. One of this one is where to play poker online if you're in the Uk, there is a section on poker books, where to find the best guides and also some quick poker facts.

If you're interested, feel free to browse the UK Poker lens and let me know what you think.

$50 Down the Tubes

Playing in a game of $1/$2 Limit poker I made the fatal mistake of trying to watch something on the telly at the same time and wasn't concentrating on what I was doing so a few BetFred Poker players took $50.

My own fault to be honest.

UK Poker

Back at BetFred Poker tonight again. Seem to be making a habit of it.

$40 into the game and didn't get the run of cards at all until just as I was going to pack it in.

Almost out of chips I landed a 4 of a kind 9s netting me $16. Pity there was only one other player in.

The action was slow after that and down to no chips I managed to land a King high straight taking me bad to the $15 mark and followed it shortly after with trip Qs but the cards tonight were against me so I called it a day with $31.75 left in my account.

Back to Bet Fred for a game of Texas Hold Em and took $50 from my account to the table. Found a nice table where they were playing like it was free money. What a loose table! Mind you, what luck they had to. So much for poker strategy!

After about half an hour and with 4 players in the pot, it climbed to a decent size and I thought that my full house was a winner!

My dreams were shattered a few second later when all three other players had a higher full house than me. Can you believe it? And I thought my tens were enough as well.

Trip 3s on the flop the next hand though to make it another full house, this time 3s full of 10s. Gotta be mine this time but no. Beaten by another full house, this time the guy had pocket 5s to give also give him trips on the flop. Grrr.

Fairly uneventful after that with me struggling to get some cash back, but in the end time caught up with me, after 2 hours of play, and I settled for $47.34, so down $2.66 for the night. I'll live with that.

Better Luck with BetFred

Managed a few poker games over the past few days and I've actually won more than I've lost! Shock Horror!!

First off I played a $1/$2 Limit game of Texas Hold Em. The pots were low in value but for the first time in what seems like ages, at least I was getting dealt average cards. Makes a change. Managed to turn $20 into $47.25. Result!

Took $27.25 from my winnings and managed to take it up to $47.75 in my next game as well.

After that I played a small sit and go tournament with 5 other poker players which only cost $1 + 0.20 to enter. Beat the rest and walked away with a first prize of $4.20.

Back to limit poker after that, sticking with BetFred Poker since I've been doing ok there and made another $9.50.

Yesterday I then played a $250 Turbo tournament which cost me $3 but I exited in 38th place out of 105 players and then exited 3rd in another small tournment loosing out on $2 + 20cents.

So a busy few days with BetFred but although playing for small amounts as I take my playing back to basics until I start winning a few more.

I've been happier with my poker play though with BetFred Poker I'm now $55.55 richer!
