    TORYS OUT!!

    I was milk monitor ! had to bring in the crates of milk bottles ( I think they were 1/3 of a pint) often been attacked by birds and also remember in winter the ice pushing up and all yje lids sitting about 2 inches above the top of the bottle and having to put them in the warm so they would be thawed by the time we drank them. Also at that time they all had cream on top as well. I grew up on a mixed dairy /horticulture farm and for most of my early life I had milk straight from the tank totally unpasteurised and sometimes even would get given milk straight from the udder though I was not keen on it being warm. Still miss the milk straight from the tank though. Not sure about fluoride tablets but I remember the pink tablets they used to give us to show we were not cleaning out teeth properly which used to stain your teeth. I agree that they should bring back things for the benefit of children's long term health maybe they should be given a drink with added vitamins and also everybody should have to have a proper school dinner which is subsidised by the state none of this shit of less than a quid being spent per meal. In the long term surely it will mean people need the NHS less. I was shocked to see some schools giving kids breakfast as many were not even getting something to eat before being sent to school . Parents need to take more responsibility when it comes to raising their kids and not believe it is all up to the school but at the same time with high inflation and the way things are many families are going to struggle. There has not been much since Marcus Rashford's campaign for which he was not always appreciated but it showed the problem was there and it would be nice if the government spent money on this . I am not sure what it would cost but considering the money wasted by governments I am sure it is fairly small and I say I would expect peoples quality of life would be better and maybe there would be less illness in adults if children were growing up with proper diets. I would not be surprised in future years if families are not helped and benefits are cut as is being proposed to see some diseases such as Ricketts reappearing in poor areas

    I have not seen someone look as shocked as Garrett for a long time when she showed her hand. I think he was still shocked and events all happened too quickly but under no circumstances should he ever have asked her for her money back. and put her in a terrible position considering who he is and the fact that she is a newcomer trying to establish herself. In my opinion this does not reflect well on him at all. Also it is interesting that some of the other players in the game such as Phil Ivy have not said anything yet you have other players who were not even there mouthing off like Polk as though what they say has any relevance and all they are doing is trying to boost their own profiles on the back of it.

    Not exactly shitting ourselves...but let's just say the confidence is not as high as it should be. Having said that we will score at least 5, so as long as our defence hold you to 4, all will be ok

    TORYS OUT!!

    The milk snatchers spirit lives on ( Thatcher to the younger folk ). The Tory party are a shower of wankers who have looked after the wealthy for decades. Every school kid in the UK should have a meal in their belly courtesy of the state. @philinvicta I know ur an auld fella.. do you remember the free milk and fluoride tablet when you were at school?, that’s if they had discovered milk back then

    The Ukraine situation

    From what I remember, the problem with Syrian refugees that arrived in Europe is that around three quarters of them were male that didn't want to integrate. There was a lot of negative press about them being ungrateful and causing trouble.

    Another live poker cheating scandal

    I play a lot of cash games, somewhere in the region of 75-100k hands/month and even at my stakes of $2/5 & $5/10, the punters that come and play don't make plays like she did. I happened to be watching it live when it happened and the thing that stood out the most to me was her body language, Imo she looked guilty af, made worse of course by her speech whilst trying to justify her play. Garret is as honest as you'll find in the poker world and I'd bet anything that if she's found innocent he'll return the money.

    Still can't get my head round this one, there's just so much on both sides that just doesn't make any sense?!! The stories keep changing as well, it appears now that she didnt offer the money back but Garret did actually ask for it which now hasnt done him any favours as why lie?! I believe in always not guilty until proven otherwise but she also hasn't helped herself with all this and just comes across as not having a clue when according to her backround she should, she's now explaining in indepth poker lingo detail about the hand (obvs prepped) when at the time she came across as clueless when explaining her thought process behind each stage of the hand. There's so much I could go into but I feel like a machine continuously malfunctioning when trying to compute it all. I just hope the outcome is conclusive but I also think that if it Hustler say they found no evidence of cheating that some including Garret who has a big influence in the poker world, would still not accept it and she could be tainted with this for life.

    Cheers for all the suggestions, going to look forward to creating this one and already ordered the gold envelopes.......twice as the first set I ordered were the size of playing cards so thats £12.60 I'll never see again! My gambling has been pretty crazy recently and if I lose on the next stream then I'm going to have a break (unless a £25 beauty happens again) as we know the casino will always win but with this style of gambling they'll get it all in record time if I carry on playing like this! So after that the next stream I do will be the giveaway one and putting the promise on it will be before Xmas at the very latest!

    The Ukraine situation

    I doubt we will know who did it but I am sure with all the monitoring by government agencies they would have an idea who did it . The fact that the earthquake monitors picked up quickly the fact it was not an accident but an explosion to put out there it was sabotage also means they wanted the news out there but in the modern age it would be difficult to keep it quiet anyway. I think it will be important to see if any attempt to repair it is made as the gas and sea water pressure equalises because I read if the sea water gets in the pipes will never be of use again. I think that Russia under Putin felt they had nothing to lose as the EU and Germans were making sure they were getting gas from elsewhere and have just destroyed the pipe to make sure no future gas could flow under a later regime. The Americans are benefiting from supplying Europe with LNG so are making money from doing this ( as they have from supplying Europe during past conflicts) Could even be someone like Iran who are looking to get back into the markets to supply oil and gas world markets other than China . Iran has very large reserves of gas it also diverts news away from recent events in that country. Plenty of others could benefit from the pipelines being out of action including China as this puts pressure on Western economies especially Europe. Could be other places like Chechnya there are plenty of places that have no love for Europe /NATO and would be happy to cause more problems for their economies. Also many middle east countries that are moving away from the traditional European and US allies with money flowing from Russian and Chinese interests. There is also the fact that another new pipeline which supplied Europe with gas also opened in the same area so if it was to cause economic hardship by cutting off European gas supplies one might have thought they might have had a go at that as well. I am pretty sure some sort of monitoring equipment will be put in place on other pipelines PDQ anyway

    The Ukraine situation

    @philinvicta What do you make out of Nord Stream pipeline sabotage? In my uneducated opinion it doesn't make sense for either side to do it when it comes to risk/reward, but apparently russia did something similar in Georgia. I understand that U.S. is likely to gain most from it, but at the same time it's something so incredibly risky if caught that I can't imagine them actually doing it.

    Another live poker cheating scandal

    I have to say that after listening to Polk I disagree with a lot of what he says and it clearly shows how long it has been since he has been around players who are not that good a poker player and are relatively new to the game. Her tournament earnings include 20k from a survivor and from the earlier video the guy played with her in that tournament and said that she seemed to have no real idea of the correct plays. Her record also seems to be relatively short for somebody that sits at this level of cash game, She does not seem to even have much of a cash game record either as none of these players seem to know anything about her. There is also nobody saying anything about her playing online games either. Remember playing online gets you a lot of experience quickly as you play so many more hands than live as well as being able to multi table. Some online cash game players will have played many times the hands that for instance Doyle Brunson has. It seems she came out of nowhere and the guy earlier was the one who said he was the one that recommended the big game producers approached her which they did and it was her that then wanted to sit down with these big money buy ins. The fact that she was calling down with AK is something in my past experience a lot of new players do because it is taught to them it is a "premium hand". It is similar in a way that when we first start we call to hit gut shot straight draws or the "idiot" end of a straight. As I say I saw her play before that night and could see that she did not have too much of an idea. Now I have never played higher stakes but I have been around a lot of well known and high stakes Irish players and have seen big games live. I also watch a lot of online poker nowadays now it does not make me an expert but I do like to think I have an objective view. Anybody who has seen some of those big cash games from Macau with the rich Chinese players will also know that people can make some weird plays and calls at times when they are just there because they enjoy poker and are not great players. Remember how these sort of guys were more than happy to take Jamie Gold to pieces in these cash games even Phil Helmuth was a terrible cash game player in my opinion but he has got a little better over time. There was also the big "private" games that were exposed where rich poor players were taken to the cleaners. Also they were more than happy to let Celine Dion's husband sit down and play with them and he lost millions because he was out of his depth. Also with the length of time to fold the j8 hand against the house when you know you are going to fold as you have nothing this is often used by tournament players to see if they can get something that may give them a clue as to what to do if they are in a hand against the same player at another time I would say that one thing the likes of Sam Trickett and Tom Dwan learnt pretty quickly was not to try and bluff these guys of hands where they might call you. I remember they also said that if you just sat there looking to pick these guys off and were not prepared to gamble you would soon be left off the invite list. At the end of the day as shocked as I was to see the hand where she called at the same time it is up to people to prove she cheated and I feel that Garrett should hand back the money she returned to him and if as I suspect she does not want it then he gives it to a charity of her choice. It was also said that she is married to a very rich lawyer hence Polk's reference to the buckle up post. Polk also knows how to avoid saying something that will get him sued for slander all well covered by the "in my opinion" that protects a lot of people in USA under their laws.

    If it turns out that she's a complete beginner then it's impossible to tell if there's a foul play and people should give her the benefit of the doubt. Long term, results should speak for itself. I don't see how one can be a winning poker player doing calls like that. One of the reasons why Mike Postle was so obviously cheating was his results - he had an insane win rate.
