I was playing well then the wheels fell off I hit top pair on a monoboard where the villain had flopped the nut flush. I then got it in with a pair and straight flush draw on the turn to be called by a queen high flush that hit the queen for $25 at the same time I got it all in from the big blind over a small blind open with ten to go in the $55 satellite holding AK v the villains AQ with a Queen on the river. After that I called it a night. Played really well but dumped $40 in the last 30 minutes.

In Zen and the Art of Poker he mentions this point and even though I am a math guy I know what he means sometimes the deck turns take that as the time to leave and go to bed or have dinner.

I’ve put £1,000 in my Barclays account from now on that is my bankroll for poker. I have currently in my PartyPoker Account £253.14 and $165 of tournament tickets and £59 on 888 Poker….all poker activity will need to grow from this seed fund.

Bankroll = £920 (£1,000 – £80 Aspers afternoon debacle)

Party Poker = £253.14 Tickets $165

888 Poker = £59
