Seems like an age since I last thought about horse racing and infact it is only last Saturday when I did indeed last look at a race card but it seems like a lifetime. In the past week I have kept away from all betting which has had a knock on effect that I have not updated my blog either. My apologies.
The racing break did do me good however as I felt bored last Sunday afternoon and decided to re-download Poker software from Pokerstars' website so I could try my hand at a few hands after an absence from playing of over two years. Once I had managed to assure the system that I was indeed the same person despite changing my e-mail address I was greeted with an account balance of $350. Now but for the snow and ice interrupting the horse racing season how much longer would that have been unknowingly left in there doing diddly squat for my wealth? Worries me to think in all honesty.
I indeed went onto Partypoker thereafter and did the same thing. This time no funds had been left in my account but I did have a $170 dollar free pass on my account to a 10 seater semi final in a Step Tournament where a win in the final would make me $2000 richer.
I will be downloading more software on Sunday as it seems I may have stupidly got abit bored with the game and stopped playing before I had emptied my accounts and used up my rewards. I plan on restarting my interest in poker though after mildly enjoying the few games I have played this week. Six Seater STT's are my majority interest as you have a 33% chance of making the prizemoney and if you are at a table with numpties those odds shoot up! I recommend it as an excellent game for those interested in competition but would not recommend cash tables as they can prove expensive if you lack discipline!
Horse racing is my main agenda on Saturday where Cheltenham is the main event of the day supported by some All Weather action at Lingfield. The Scoop 6 may appeal to many and I will be waking up nice and early to start my form reading because I know a winning run is not far away if I do my homework properly!
Check back in the morning!
