THE FISH BITE BACK!
Another week of high volatility with the Pacific account veering from down to 127 to plus 174 and finally ending up at 160 for a very modest profit. The main reason was that the fish fought back yesterday, with a succession of irritating hands where folk were catching running gutshot flushes, straights and the like. The worst one was when I had two Aces and hit another on the flop which came Ad 6s 2c. Needless to say I was betting for Britain and was happy to see three punters. Fine, except one of the villains hits a couple of spades on the turn and river to take me down. At least I got out when he raised on the river...sigh. You just have to live with this sort of thing, but it isn't funny, especially when it happens serially, as it did yesterday.
I have hardly played at all on Laddies, except for one night when I two tabled - you can only play one table at a time on Pacific. I might well do more of this.
Still at least my old favourite, Kicking King, obliged again in the King George to keep the horse account healthy. A close run thing though, with Monkerhostin overtaking him just after the winning post. I had Harchibald too a few weeks back but correctly passed on him on his latest outing. A difficult horse that one and I'll avoid him in future.
