Well, I played live again on Wednesday night (26th July), lots of runners this time so a re-buy rather than a freeze out, and just as well as far as I am concerned.
First hand I get dealt QQ in late position, rasied from 50 to 600 and get called by the dealer.
Flop is ten high and I push all in, and the dealer shows pocket aces, not the best of starts.
After a re-buy I was pretty much card dead and struggled to pinch a blind or two, won a couple of hand just before the re-buy period ended and after the top up I was on about average stack of around 6k. Pushed with KQ on a Q high flop in an unraised pot, and walked into AQ and that was that, ah well, there's always next week.
Luck has pretty much deserted me online too, won entry into the $5k Gtd on Betfair via a satellite and was going well in the last 50 or so when this happened

It doesn't stop there either, trying to qualify for the $5k Gtd on Betfair again I had pocket nines undone by a King on the river after someone called my pre-flop all in with KQo and then my nut flush against two pair, made his full house on the river.
Ah well, bad luck doesn't last forever, and when it changes I must be due a decent run of good fortune :)
