Life after poker

Still not playing online much, have had a couple of bashes at the $10k Gtd on Pokerstars at 6pm EST without much success, manage to outlast 700 or 800 but still go out shy of the money.
But summers here, the suns out and theres lots of stuff to do away from the virtual green baize.
I did play live last night, £100 freeze out, 18 runners, managed 3rd place for £330, which was a little disapointing as I was chip leader with three left before getting it all in pre-flop with KK v TT. He raises, I reraise, he jams and I cant call quick enough. Unfortunately lady luck decides to stick her oar in and 4 diamonds on the board gives him a flush and me a short stack.
Didn't last much longer after that, nicked a few blinds before getting caught with my hand in the cookie jar, and that was that.
I did enjoy it though, and I intend to play as much live poker as possible in the coming months, whatever I decide to do about the online game.
Anybody local to Gib or in southern Spain on holiday, may be interested in the following:

I haven't yet visted the players lounge, but the games at Gib casino are pretty friendly affairs, and all are welcome, so if you're in the area give it a try.

Well thats about it for now, hope the poker gods smile on you.

Unlucky in the live event, that must have been a nasty one to take!

You'll win next time :)
