Played Queensland Poker Events free poker grand final last weekend, came 29th from 400, got $50 in my kit for that, that's the only bright spot I have only placed in 1 sit n go of the 20 I have played at Full Tilt Poker, I can't believe how unlucky I am at this site, take this for example. I am playing a $5 sit n go with 9 people, pays top 3, we get down to 4 people and everyone is folding to the blinds, no-one is making a move, I have the second smallest stack, about $1900. I get dealt QQ and push all-in, blinds are 300/600, correct play, next guy calls and guy after calls, they turn over KK and AA, I had no chance.
They also run a tournament style called "knockout", every time you knockout a player you get 1/6 of your buy-in back. I have placed in everyone of these I have played, but I am still

In all the time I have been playing online poker I have deposited $150 over 3 years, this has kept me playing almost daily, I play $2,$3,$5,$10 & $20 sit & go's. I have never had more than $300 in my account though. I just joined up at Full Tilt to gain some more poker software, Poker Office, I managed to qualify for 100 FTP quite easily playing pot limit tables. I still had $60 of my $80 deposit left. I decided to play the standard $5 9 player SNG. I have now lost the last 8 games on the bubble, I have been outdrawn with pocket AA twice, pocket KK three times and pocket QQ twice. The three best starting hands in poker have killed me 8 times in a row on the bubble, always called by weak starting hands and getting beaten, change of luck required very soon or back to depositing I go
After watching the doco below I went searching the Twin Galaxies high scores. The one for Dragon's Lair is crap, I got 1.6 million one Saturday morning at Mt Warren Bowl, piece of cake. Also the Bubble Bobble one is quite ordinary too, if only I had some time up my sleeve and a partner to play it with, could kick the single and 2 player scores with ease.
After just watching this excellent doco I have come to the conclusion that Billy Mitchell is one of the biggest wankers ever portrayed on screen, who has a mullet in this day and age anyway Love to meet him in a dark alley one day.
0.123u6 is out with a promise of a new release this weekend, grab the ROMs in the newsgroups now.
Can't find it anywhere else online but the worlds tallest residential building located on Queensland's Gold Coast will soon have a roller coaster on top of it, same style as the Stratosphere in Las Vegas.
When we were in Vegas last time we went to the Stratosphere at 11:30 at night only to be told there was an 1hr wait to get to the top, needless to say we didn't stand in a line for an hour.
Gotta love it when you hit a hnad like this All-in on the turn made it even sweeter.
Didn't know what this was about until the end, laughed so much I cried.
