Nights like tonight are difficult to take.

Got knocked out of 16k and a 15k rebuy when in good possys with 50 left by pathetic plays by fish losers.

In 16k I have JJ flop 10 9 4 3 clubs i bet pot he calls - Im certain he has ace clubs.

6k Pot so I bet 8k all in on turn which is a blank so he cant call. Unbelievable he calls with ace 7 off suit and hits. 2-1 for a 5-1 shot well played mate.

Rebuys even worse when some fish called allin** calls my overbet on turn and flop with 10 5 chasing a flush. Im trying not to get too mad as they prob contribute to this years profit but annoying when they hit.

Read Azimuts blog about dealing with beats and tryed to put it in practice tonight when i put nh wp. However succumbed to throwing some abuse at the fish on the other rebuy site. Still need to sort this should just close down and leave.

Hers is the mail I got today from BlueSquare - sounds like I have to gear up in a BlueSquare top - Bit of a shame as I see Betfair as my poker home but hopefully can where their gear when I qualify for WSOPE on Fri night ;) - I also really like the BS site for rebuy tournies and sats to live events and will probably play more their.
