Public Service Announcement to those wishing to try Guitar Hero

Through the Fire and Flames is still hard on Easy becasue I’m rubbish :(

For those who can’t guess the XBox 360 is now wired into the projector and 5.1 surround system and is now being used as God intended….to play Rock Music at absurdly loud volumes while holding Plastic Guitars and reading the charts off an 84" screen!! And I downloaded Track and Field and Sonic because I’m old!!

I DID actually play poker today too and it’s rare I have a losing session and think to myself afterwards “Man I did well there” but I had similar thoughts today.

Somehow only being down 10BB today felt like a MAJOR acheivement. Sometimes not losing as much as you could is just as good as winning. Not gonna post too many hands as they’re pretty much strings of “Oh Noes” style hands but there were a couple of interesting ones.

Pre Flop: (1.5 SB) Hero is BB with K Diamond Q Diamond
1 fold, CO calls, 1 fold, SB calls, Hero raises, CO calls, SB calls

Flop: (6 SB) 5 Spade K Club 2 Spade (3 players)
SB checks, Hero bets, CO calls, SB calls

Turn: (4.5 BB) T Club (3 players)
SB checks, Hero bets, CO calls, SB calls

River: (7.5 BB) J Spade (3 players)
SB bets, Hero folds, CO calls

Final Pot: 9.5 BB

I think all things considered this is a pretty standard fold (if there is such a thing as a “standard fold of top pair” in Limit. I was 100% sure that he wouldn’t bluff into 2 players here although I have seen it.

Results-wise I was actually in 3rd place in the hand…can you guess how?

Ok 1 lol hand

I was planning to raise the turn but the 9 put the brakes on me. Probably shouldn’t have done but the player was new to me at the time and in the absence of a FD he hit the turn quite hard but yeah I admit I still should have raised the turn. Still funny though.

Ah well, aside from that I’m actually pretty happy atm. The XBox is awesome and I should have bought one ages ago and I’m relaxing nicely now. Hit me with your XBox ID if you want me to add you…assuming I know you of course :)
