A sad day indeed. My once beloved poker forum has seen fit to suspend me for posting a news link to a paedophile story that broke today. Its been a bit of a running battle recently and I have grown kind of tired with it all. But the subject got resurrected recently and I have just made a couple of comments, nothing nasty, just what I see as the truth behind it all. I just dont believe that a convicted paedophile has any business on the internet, let alone as a member of a poker forum. But the site admin feel differently and they make the rules, so thats that. I have no idea how long for or if its permanent or not, time will tell. It just sits badly with me, especially as I have a 3 yr old granddaughter. If one of those fuckers ever hurt her, they would be dead, simple as that, no hesitation. In this day and age, guns are not hard to find. I would only do the kneecaps first, then make the fucker suffer some before finishing the job. I make no appollogies for that at all. I detest these bastards and wouldn’t hesitate in killing one of them, they are scum, the whole lot of them and they need to learn theres no place on this planet for them.

So what I am going to do with myself now, I dont know, lol. In many ways, its doing me a favour in helping me distance myself from there. It was developing into a slow divorce and getting messy with it. But thats what these people bring to your door, nothing but trouble and pain and suffering. The timing could just be a blessing in disguise if a couple of things come off for me in the next few weeks. I hope its just a two week job, so I can still play a few games there and talk to a few mates at the tables now and then, but I am not going to be devastated or anything. Maybe the time is right to move on, when coupled with other areas of life that I am trying to push forward. So maybe this year is the year of change that I have been wanting and hoping it to be. Iam in a better place mentally and although its slow going, my fitness is building bit by bit and thats what I need, baby steps, inch by inch. Progress is progress, no matter how slow and painful it is, its progress all the same and thats the important factor right now.

It very much looks like, unless a small miracle happens, that this is me now for the rest of my days. If thats the case, bring it on, I am ready for a good scrap. Three years of hell has led me to a great deal of frustration and somewhere, its payback time. I have got to be sensible and focused and not want everything to happen like yesterday, aptience, patience and more patience will get me through I am sure. And now that damned place has banned my sorry ass, I need an outlet. But after naming this blog after the place as my own tribute, I am wondering if I can change the name of it at all? I will have a real look for that tomorrow when theres more time. I have won just about all I wanted to win there anyway. I did the clean sweep, won the CC tournament, won some points buy ins, and a cash buy in and two indy leages. Iwould have liked to have spent a month playing the VIP games, but doubt thats gonna happen now. I shall be closing more accounts now and getting others taken off the trackers they are on, they aint gettin no more of my hard earnt cash.

So that ends a lousy day. Felt shit all day today and come back down with a bump after yesterday being so positive. But I wont let that get me down or this other crapola, screw that. Let the children play and try to be god, I aint interested anymore in that.

Tomorrow is another day. For now, I am going to play some poker with a few online friends and have a laugh or two, hopefully. Not bothered about winning, not really, but that might change come game time, lol.

Pokerspace


Ok, for some of you out there, you will be asking what the hell my name could mean.  Pspacer11 means absolutely nothing by itself and I have to agree. But, knowing and understanding some of the background behind it all explains how it came about.

I am an active member of an online poker forum/community called Pokerspace. It’s a great place to meet fellow poker players, talk poker, play poker and post blogs and forum topics.

http://www.pokerspace.com/community/

I think if you click the link it should take you to the community homepage and you can take it from there. the school is a good place to start. It matters not what you level of skill is, it’s a good test to see just how much you think you know about poker. Be warned, the outcome can be surprising!

Theres all manner of things going on at Pokerspace. Theres a weekly tournament schedule for members only, with points and cash to be won and a great team event called the Crew Cup where the prize is an all expenses trip to somewhere, usually a casino hotspot or something like that.

Anyway, I digress. I have been a member there for almost a year now and have enjoyed the ride so far. I have improved my game, which is why I signed up in the first place and won two Indy Leagues, various tournaments and also the Crew Cup. To have done all this inside of my first 12 months has been staggering and shows how much my game has improved. The Crew Cup prize this year was for a trip to Las Vegas to play the live OFC [online forum challenge] at the end of June. Hotel accommodation, travel expenses and buy ins are all paid for and theres cash left over for some spending money. Not bad huh. Oh, there’s also the annual PSOC event which is the Pokerspace Online Championship. It’s almost a mini WSOP with various events with different buy ins and prizes. All events can be satellited into.

Anyway, that’s where the name comes in. My nic on Pokerspace is Tino11, but that was already taken by the time I got here. So I had the task of thinking up a new nic that incorporated my own nic and the community I represent. So to me, Pspacer11 was a good compromise, one that I am happy with and one that suggests where I might be coming from.

I would think by now, all you poker players from the US are aware of the UIGEA  regs put forward by your government to either restrict you from playing poker, or to find some way of taxing the revenue from poker and online gambling.

This blog from one of our distinguished administrators shows the latest news about all this nonsense. Unfortunately, this  whole situation threatens us all as online poker players as I feel certain that other governments of the world will try to follow suit.

So now you have some idea of what we are about. Why not jump on over and pay us a visit and see for yourself whats on offer. Nothing ventured, nothing gained right? I am sure, once you have a butchers [look] you will be hooked.
