I need a new hobby

..this is what I've been doing tonight..
funny city names!
my top picks are:
14. Dead Chinaman (Papua New Guinea)
1. Fucking (Austria)
11.Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (Wales) <--- not sure wtf this is :p

19. Poopoo (Hawaii)
Top50 list <--- not as funny as one might think but sure kept me and Anna going.
Ok. Yes. I suck.
Tomorrow: grind.
Weekend: Anna?

Lately my sessions has been really strange, lost most all ins (as a big favourite, of course) vs random crap hands ...and I've made most money calling bluffs. Not the way it should be.(?)
But would be awesome to make 12 buy ins on average each night. Run like god. One time? For a month or two? Please?
(I'm the banana this time! mwahaha!)


  1. Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch - a little town north of me

    It's actually in the lyrics to the song i posted in my last blog post if you want to hear it pronounced.

    Got to love the Welsh language. 90% of us Welsh cant even pronounce it properly :)

  2. wtf!! that's so sick! :P how the hell do you get to the right place if you go by taxi? :D and the spelling..oh god. :)
    or does it have an English name as well?

    ..and I'm going to listen to that tomorrow when I wake up:)

  3. haha no worries. Let me know what you think of it :)

    English translation is:
    'The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave'

    Obv no one ever calls it that (i had to look it up. lol) - I guess most the people who live there just have to learn to pronounce it.

    I can read it (just) but to say it from memory i know it up to Llanfairpwllgwyngyll.........gogogoch - the middle bit is impossible to remember. lol

    Most people know where you mean if you just say it ends in 'gogogoch' :)

    p.s. Im watching Sweden on tv now - Watching the Scandinavian Masters golf from 'Bro Hof Slott golf club'. Anywhere near you?

  4. Lol that image made me laugh. If not indiscreet, can I ask you why do you hide the amounts ($) you won/loose in your graphs? In which poker room are you playing now?

  5. I don't find it interesting/takes up space/blah :P
    Guess I could stop doing it if people wanted to see but ur not idiots either..if I play 0.5/1 and win 1200 that's $1200.

    I'm at boss,FTP,stars and svs and my nicknames will never be known! moahaha! :D

  6. lol fair enought how long have you been playing poker?

  7. 6 years-ish, been playing "pro" most of the time ..
    you ? :)
    daily graph is for you today hehe:)

  8. m playing since December '09 *.* I was playing by myself without reading any strategy guides or something like that. So I joined 2+2 forum's and now I am taking poker like serious business and correcting my leaks lol, but I'm still a newbie :x. Hope someday I can do so much as you do in poker. Thanks for the graph its pretty awesome to me especially the value won lol (That's why I like to see the graph's values it gives me motivation to play poker :P) Good luck at tables and I hope you find the motivation you are looking for ;)

  9. Are you a winning player yet? :) What stakes are you playing?
    I read a lot on 2+2 in the goals and challenges forum, it's very inspiring and gives me motivation to see other people work hard and play good.. :)

  10. As I said before I am still a newbie lol I am currently playing NL2 & NL5 *.* I am not a winning player at NL5, but for NL2 here is my graph http://db.tt/iXtKs3 I started to follow 2+2 advices's after the session 2091 my BB/100 after that session is around 10/11 in ~10k hands which is good imo. Right now I am playing NL2 softly (~700hands per day) adapting myself to the game again since I was stopped for a while due to my studies. In next week I will be playing NL2 improving my game to beat the next limit and I will try to handle 18 tables at the same time because right now I can only handle 15 (my objective is to handle the maximum tables, 24). Wish me good luck :P. And about you? How did you start playing poker? In the lowest limits?

  11. What's ur nick on 2+2? :D
    *stalker alert*
    Do you have a blog?

    I started like Ferguson, freerolls.. :) then I dunno, nl5, nl10, nl50, nl100..I've played as high as nl1k but that was way back when the games were incredibly soft (like 4 years ago). I'll never play that high again :p

  12. "nicknames will never be known! moahaha! :D" I will take my revenge now :P kidding Theodorus is my nick on 2+2 and i am starting making a poker blog essencialy for self motivation (not using blogger) i will tell you the link then.
