Bit of a joke posting this as profit as my big winning day was Oct and I have lost lost lost ever since. However, did not go in last months so needs to go into this month.

Overall except 1 day a truly shocking month with 80-90% sessions were losers and 4 runs of 7 losing sessions in a row!!! I played cash only as travelling.

NL 7400
PLO -4300


Football -2050
Casino -100
Snooker -500
Horses -25
F1 1225
Darts 600
NFL -975
TOTAL -1825

Pretty poor month especially considering I collected on Button ante post bet and Vikings bet both posted as advices on here (maybe i should post all bets).

Despite big loss I was mega unlucky in the month and went close to some big returns, and if had been able to play in running probably would have lost less. However, at end of day its another bad month !!!

£20 well spent !!!

Played no poker so it wasnt a preflop raise or a big blind !!!

Arrived Sydney yesterday and today went on a jetboat cruise to see the harbour for 35 Aussie $.

Basically cruised slowly past all the Sydney sights like opera house, bridge, beaches, Manly etc. Then when got out past shark island the captain says time to go and pumps on the dance music and floors the speedboat for 15 minutes absolutely flying back past some of the sights you have just cruised past. He then starts doing tricks with the boat at what must be around 100 MPH with huge turns and it bouncing almost on one side etc.

Photo attached of Raffles Singapore bar floor. They cant even clean the floors of monkey nut shells for a few k a night rooms and £8 a half beer :D :D

Just leaving Singapore - what I would say is there is construction absolutely every way especially on Sentosa Island. However, of note to readers of this blog is construction of a 3 tower Sands resort that looks like it will be a huge casino and hopefully wll get some big APT poker tournies going as I would love to go back.

Anyone who wants to give me VIP tickets to next years F1 night race feel free :D

Had 1 short session of poker losing 100BB at PLO and all my sports bets went down the pan yesterday bar a footy treble when one of them was Toon (last min!!) so I need man city to win today to get that up.

Off to Thialand today for flight to Sydney tomorrow :D

I would be mega depressed.

Poker is awful every time I get on - playing bad and running bad is a bad combo.

Then last night I really really fancied 0 0 in Man U game but decided to hedge bets a little. However, game is middle of night over here so I did not play in running.

Had big bet draw 9-4
decent bet draw Ht draw FT 9-2
and decent bet no goalscorer 9-1

If had been up I could have traded for a very decent win :( and see 0 1 Valencia 86 first thing today :(

This is definitely the month I have lost the most big blinds at cash and trhe fact I have made a profit is really ridiculous as had that 1 good day at higher stakes when taking a shot - not sure what next move is - maybe it should be just enjoy the travels and don't log on even when get the chance, especially as don't have time to play mutis.

However, few things I have decided on are as follows.

1) Will no longer play Laddies unless they give me same deal my mates have.
2) I heard there is a skin when you can change alias every week, I hope this is true as I want an account their if so - is it Cake poker anyone know? - to beat the poker robots.
3) I need a leakfinder session booked as soon as I get back - Ben / Brennan get diaries free for last weekend in Nov as I am doing something bad !!!
4) I now know whatever happened to me work wise in future I am pretty positive I could never ever be a poker pro, lack discipline, excitement and becomes a "job".

Hope everyone is well - loving my trip and none of the above gets me down in the real world. However, this is a poker blog so my duty to say whats going on in my poker world.

We leave Borneo today, then 3 days Singapore, 1 day back in Bangkok then fly to Sydney - its not all bad :D

Hardly played any poker in last week and bits I did were losing sessions.

However, rather than moan I have put up this photo which I took in Borneo today (in the wild) which i think is pretty awesome - not sure I could beat 5 of these at the minute !!!

Maybe it would have been better if poker had been banned in my hotel in Thailand as dropped quite a lot of cash in the sessions I have played. I am not at the top of my game but boy am I continuing running badly in all the big pots bar the one day I had success this month.

Leave Thailand tomorrow for Malaysia and have no clue on internet connection and poker laws there so lets see what happens.

On a seperate note Vikings at 5/7 and evens -2.5 are a tremndous bet Sunday coming IMO.

Just lost 2k in a session - pictured hand been the worst of the lot which is pretty sick as I think all cash was going in regardless of river - More than half my cash is in before river but I probably should be getting aware from some of these hands when FH lands - probably huge leak in my game. Obviously i have FH also on end but the worst one.

Weather has been pretty awful here in Thailand, I knew it was the rainy season but it has chucked down almost every day all day !! - just moved from Phuket to Krabi so fingers crossed for better weather and this hotel has wireless so if weather is bad then I will get a few hands of poker in.

Anyway the point of this post is that I was told gambling / poker was illegal in Thailand - maybe the police will come and get me in my hotel but I have had no issues playing on Laddies at any hotel or getting onto Betfair, very randomly the only site I had an issue getting on was Paddy Power - which to be honest is bad news as did 4 figs in on sports betting at weekend - LOL.
