Cork started bad and didn't get much better.
Its 1 hr flight unfortunately proceeded by a 7 hr delay which was a nightmare. i would have just gone home if they had told me up front was 7 hr delay. Anyway I had booked hotel in middle of nowhere also so wasn't a good start.
Racing in VIP bit at Cork was really good plus greta value for cash but no winners in 6 races was a bit shite. Just went round bars watching footy on Sunday and came back today. Not sure I went to wrong places but was not much to do in general - don't think I will go back.
Anyway how did i get a badbeat without playing. I bought 10% in Graham Clarkson AKA Flash Badger - was delighted when my mate text saying he was still in on day 3 and i assumed he must be in or close to the cash. I got text 1 hr later to say lost a massive pot near bubble aa v qq with q on riv.
I felt like shit he must have felt 9 times worse. I know he reads this blog - so top effort mate - your just losing the big pots that matter - I am sure a big win is round the corner. I seen a bit of it on TV last night and it would have been a good tourny to be stacked in late on as standard seemed shite. EG guy with 55 pushing all in from early possy with 1/4 mill at 5k 10k blinds and spikin 5 etc.
Anyway alls well that ends well. I had put a huge footy acca on for me £250 - I knew I had toon adn Man U at evens and could not rememeber whether I had been greedy adding Villa who lost. Just logged on to see ching ching :)
