Another game at BetFred Poker

Almost forgot to post about last nights play at BetFred Poker. I played some $0.50/$1 No Limit Texas Hold Em and lost $7.21 in the first game and won $16.30 in the next.

A profit of $9.09, about £5.20.

Bet Freds $0.50/$1 No Limit Hold Em

Another few games of Texas Hold Em today, this time with BetFred Poker, one of my favourite poker rooms.

I played 5 small tourneys costing me £8.06 in total to enter and had great fun. These small tournaments are far more exciting that the big ones and because at most you can loose a couple of quid, the whole experience is more lively and people play like they should. In some of the larger tourneys, some hold back because they are playing for too much money.

Didn't do really too well with a few 3rds and 4th places which don't net you anything as it's normally the top two players that get some cash with the BetFred smaller tourneys.

Did manage a 2nd once which got me £2 back but great fun!

No Limit Texas Hold Em

I played at one of the Prima Poker rooms on Friday night, this time Spin Palace Poker.

Playing in a game of $0.50/$1 No Limit Texas Hold Em, I managed to turn $30 into $55.09 a profit of $25.09 which is roughly £14.40.

Not a lot but at least I'm heading the right way to take back some of my bigger losses from last week.

Forgot to post this over the weekend so a quick update.

I played a few games at Bet Fred and Pokerstars and ended $12 up - after a lot of play!

When the Cats Away...

... The Mice Will Play!!!

Yes the girlfriend has been down with my daughter in hospital the last 3 nights so I've managed to get a few games of uninterupted poker at Bet Fred.

Decide to up my game a little and have been playing $1/$2 No Limit Texas Hold Em.

My play for Mon/Tues/Wed combined totalled a loss of $254. Oh No! This is big money as far as I'm concerned but I do enjoy the buzz of playing for money that actuall means something and I'm having a whale of a time.

Strange isn't it? Losing and enjoying playing more than ever!

Tonight I faired a little better and won $83. Still not enough to recoup this weeks losses so far but a consolation prize that makes me feel a little better.

All this put together means a net loss of $171 since Monday and my chances of getting another game are slender until at least Sunday.

A Win at Bet Fred Poker

Still reeling from that $60 loss last night, which I'm kicking myself about due to playing the wrong hands and not concentrating, I decided to attempt Bet Fred Poker again.

Deposited $30 at Bet Fred and was down to under $10 at one stage so I brought another $15 to the table making my outlay $45. Played for about 2 hours and had a poor run followed by a better set of cards. This went on for some time but eventually I managed to claw myself up to $105.37 in my account.

A profit of $60.37 giving me a profit of a massive 37 cents over the last two nights.

Thank God for Bet Fred Poker!

I managed to sort the damage and I'll put last night down to experience.

Played a game at PokerStars last night and lost $60.

Probably bad play to be honest. I was tired and played too many hands.

Another Uneventful Poker Night

Tried my luck back at Pokerstars last night and like last weekend, I played for 2 hours. The money went up, then down and so on the whole night and I ended up with a very slight profit of $3.75.

Still at least I've notched another small win rather than the losing streak I was on.
