Getting back to normal

Things are getting a bit nearer to normal now, I have broadband (or what passes for broadband in Gib) in the flat and I have been playing a bit more online.
I had my first losing week for a while last week, mainly due to playing on Betfairs low stakes cash tables. I cant seem to win on the cash tables no matter what I try, I either get outdrawn or Im up against a monster, I guess a lot is just down to bad luck, but its hard to go into a cash game with any confidence when things are running so bad.
Not much luck playing live either, I played in the weekly £20 rebuy tournament in Gib Casino on Thursday, lasting only 2 hands past the rebuy period before my pocket Queens ran into pocket rockets.
Still its a good night out, plenty of craic and some good company, even if it is over a little sooner than I would have liked.
I had the unexpected priviledge of playing against JPJ, Dubai Millenium and Fishpoo in a $10 STT on Betfair this morning, unfortunately my luck ran true to form and I busted out with top pair versus slow played pocket aces before I could claim a famous scalp to brag about in the flashmob game, maybe we can persuade the illustrious trio to join us in the fllashmob one week soon.
Flying back to England tomorrow for what will be the last time for a while, my wife and youngest daughter will be coming out to Giraltar on 2nd July, and then things will really get back to normal, except with a bit more sunshine.
Thanks to anyone taking the trouble to read this, and good luck.

More from Gib

Apologies again for the infrequent updates but I should be able to get on top of the blog again now as we now have broadband acces in the flat
Still haven't played much poker, either online or live recently, no internet access put paid to the online side, and work commitments ko'd the live tournaments as well.
Things are still going well for me out here, work is good, now the site is live we are getting busier and I am learning more about the business.
Mansion also have some great offers at the moment, all this weekend the tournamenys are all added value, and with as few as 2 entrants per tournament they are excellent value. So if you are reading this and dont yet have Mansion Poker, Download it now.
Yhere are also some great offers coming up in the next few weeks, big prize pool freerolls, poker dome qualifiers and wsop seats up for grabs so keep an eye on the site.
Thanks to all the guys who have msn'd and e-mailed me there support over the last few weeks and good luck to the flashmobbers and others playing on the Mansion site next week. I will try to play the flashmob game this week to contribute some 'dead money' to the prize pool
