So much has happened since my last blog I really do not know where to start. Or end. I am so crap, I was so sure that I would update this more and with one thing and another, it has not happened.
So, lets get the poker bit out of the way. It has been very up and down lately, some horrible runs and some great results. Best one for the last few weeks was a satellite that I won to play in a $300 tournament (it only cost me $24 to enter). In the actual main event I finishde 6th out of 144 and won about $2300. I have been playing quite a few $215 Sit & Go's on Party Poker and they are going ok but only showing a marginal profit. The biggest problem I seem to be having is when I get KK. I just can not win with it whether I am all in pre flop, or betting for value.
We have made a few trips lately, one such was a very pleasant couple of days on the motorbike. I fixed up the groovy BMW luggage and off we rode. It was so nice. We didn't really have any plans as to where we were heading. We stayed at a lovely Hotel called Verde al Mare which is about 30 km away from Patras. Click on the name of the hotel to see it but suffice to say, it was very nice and quiet. After the night there we went on to Patras and over to Kalavryta. This is where we normally go skiing in the winter. I have to say, it is very different in the summer! We went to the lovely Holy Monastery of Mega Spileo (which means the Grand Cave). After that we were planning on heading over to Olympia but we were both pretty tired so headed back. The bike performed very well, comfortably sitting at 100km/h with plenty in reserve when needed.
My cousins band now have a website and I must be honest and say I am rather impressed. If you like your music 'live', played by real people then pop over to their website and have a listen. There are three tracks on there, "Better Days" being the pick of the bunch in my opinion. For the record, they are called 'Behind City Lights'. Looking through the site certainly had me reminiscing of my musical days! If I can figure out how to do it, I may even upload a few tracks of when we went in to the recording studio fully... jeez, twenty years ago. HaHaHa. I am old. Ouch.
Well, I will try and post some photos over the coming days (yeah right!) until then,
