"If you always start with the worst hand, you never have a bad-beat story to tell"
Current Ranking: Dead last.
Poker accomplishments/wins: 40th out of 2 thousand odd on the 'Stars Blogger tourney (only for Dale to nick my glory by winning it), and one outrageous $12k pot at Binions playing NLHE drunk.
Plays online at: PokerStars, Full Tilt and Party
Online Aliases: NWsixer
Played for how long?: 3 years, although I have the skill level of non-shuffling beginner.
Playing style: Like a man standing neck deep in a swimming pool full of petrol trying to light his cigarette with a blowtorch i.e. somewhat reckless.
Most Likely To: raise blind
Least Likely to: make a final table without the use of pliers
Worst 'bad beat' suffered: £50 cash table at the Gutshot sititng behind £300. KQ of diamonds. I'd straddled, and then raise the pot. One monkey left. Flop 5d-6d-Kh GET IN! I pot, he calls. Turn Qs. Even better. I pot. He calls. River 9d. I lump in what's left. He calls. I flip over my flush. He says "you got me", and flips over his cards. Dealer has pot half way to me before he spots his cards are a flush too 7d 8d. A straight flush. Out rivered and slow rolled by a simian mofo. Ouch.
Worst 'bad beat' inflicted: Same scenario. I have Jc8c. Two runners. Flop 4c5c6c. All the money goes in when a 7c hits the turn. Cards go over. Player one has Kc, player 2 has Ac, I have their balls, their cash and their souls. Ta.
When not playing poker I'm: Swearing off the stupid game for life.
Favourite poker pro: Sam Farha. Not the best. Not the smartest. Not the richest. But the coolest.
Favourite/Lucky Openers: Chinese aces (pocket eights)
