Have managed to make a bit of an arse of myself on the Blonde forums complaning for not making the blue belt grade. I should've cooled down before I started talking about it, but in fairness I feel I have every right to be upset, frustrated and all that.
I think Neil really missed the boat with me. I think I'd have been really good for the site. I was dedicated, hard working, made the effort to trapse down from Lincoln every week, and I missed out only because of my lack of profit over the grading, which was supposedly only a quarter of the decision, but for me it turned out to be seemingly the main factor.
Neil rang me and said I was unusual because I hit brown belt targets in some categories in his decision and green belt in others, whereas others were perhaps a mix of 2 colours next to each other. In my Maths lessons I was taught that (1+3)/2 = 2, but I guess they used a different forumla over at Blackbelt.
I hope my appearance on The Poker Show (link available on the left menu) made me seem like less of a donk over the whole thing.
I haven't played over the last couple of days. As you can imagine, I've needed a break from poker. I was originally intending to hit Pokerstars hard due to their VIP deal. Now, I think I will compromise and just make sure I hit the 1200 points for Platinum status and maybe experiment on there a little in June. Having had a very sucessful time at the tables from the start of the year to mid-April, it's been 6 weeks since I made any money and I am keen to get back on track...
