A 6-Day Mo

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world.

The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

So I decided to put in a late entry to this years movember. A pretty dumb move considering that my decision took place on Nov 28th, lol.

I had already about 3 days growth so thought I would give it a good weeks effort. However I forgot that there are only 30 days in November so I only achieved a nice 6 day mo. My attempt at side handlebars is pretty lame too but not much you can do in 6 days. I will give it the full month next year. Starting so late also means that I could not really put together a sponsorship page so I will just donate to a mate's page or directly to the site.

Here is my 6-day Mo:

The Fish Fight Back

I've played a few hands over the last 2 days and they haven't been fun.

I am not too bothered as I seem to getting it in good only to be crushed to ridiculous suckouts or really terrible shoves pre.

I will start with this first one which is against an aggro 48/31 type player. When the showdown arrives I am totally shocked by his holding.

Couldn't fade the river......


Hand 2 here is probably one where I deserve my stacking as for some reason I didn't raise his mid position open. The villain is a 52/14 monkey that will go broke pretty soon.

Jam Baby, Jam...

I love these pots. They are so much fun. I just want to try to understand why MP2 would call with his holding after 2 all-ins. I guess some people just love to gamble. As it turns out his ace was live.

Pre against these two hands I am only 54% to win. On the flop I am a 70% favourite and on the turn I am 79%.
