Hard Graft


y run of months in profit had to come to an end at some point, and November was that point. Cash tables returned somewhere around even, within a few dollars, but I took a hit in the tourneys I played, cashing rarely. One hand made me laugh though: I’d sat...

Mayan Calendar +1


My first blog of 2017 or Mayan Calendar +1 as I like to think of it. The fact that we are all still here did nothing but prove whomever made the calculations in Maya-land, just went that far, then said, ‘F**k it, I won’t be around in two thousand years,...

Wishing my life away (not)


Following up from my last, Killzone3—what a blast. Just the game to keep me amused while the icy days drifted past. I checked in on the official MotoGP site a number of times (already turning my thoughts to next season), man-alive, what stonking good-looking bikes we have this year. I’m...

Single cylinder petrol mowers chugging across gardens, the chinking bottled beer salutes of British MotoGP fans cheering Cal Crutchlow and Bradley Smith, not to mention Scott Redding, and MotoGP fans everywhere cheering Rossi to his comeback win at Assen, mixed with the astonishment of Lorrenzo...

Apart From


Apart from a several of deep cashes in MTT’s and moderate gains from cash tables (that’s the boring bit out of the way). And apart from cheering on so many brilliant races in all three MotoGP classes. And apart from seeing a grown man wearing a Superman T-shirt around our...
