    The 2012 Llanlad Zen ( Can do one ) Like Thread is HERE

    A few days ago ... i did not want this to happen ... but a lot can change in a few days in Llanlaaand .

    Lets make this one a good thread ... lets all be happy and meet up for group hugs when things are not going well ... we should be there for each other in times of need.

    Lets all prosper this year .... lets not get down when those A flops come ...lets smile and tell Grim his antics dont work anymore ..

    Poker is all about PERSEVERANCE AND HARD WORK ... ITS ABOUT BELIEF AND REACHING LONG TERM GOALS ...

    This year ...anyone of us can reach out and achieve whatever goals we set ourselves ...

    I AM GOING TO PROVE THAT TILT IS NOT EVEN REAL, ITS JUST A WORD THAT PLAYERS USE AS A EXCUSE FOR THEIR LACK OF EFFORT IN TRYING TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS.

    Well ... no more BS.

    I wont be playing much this month ... i have a shed load of work to complete but i will have a lot more time come February..

    Ive also joined up to a poker training program with a high stakes player ...im hoping the extra effort i put into that will give me some more determination and focus for the year ahead.

    Im basically going to shock everyone this year.

    GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE THIS YEAR.

    First page of a new thread seems like a handy place to leave a bookmark. Easy to find in case it's required later on...

    What have we done with variance
    Can't ever hit a flop, it never made much sense
    Pocket pairs will lose again
    Wasting another night playing this stupid game

    10 NL
    10 NL
    10 NL

    Don't want to be your poker wench
    Can't even win by accident
    I'd rather leave than suffer this
    I'll never be your poker wench

    All this time to break even
    What do you do when Grim just will not be your friend
    Tilt and stars they're both the same
    Under pressure wind up snapping in the end

    10 NL
    10 NL
    10 NL

    Don't want to be your poker wench
    Can't even win by accident
    I'd rather leave than suffer this
    I'll never be your poker wench

    Temper
    Temper
    Temper

    One last thing before I quit
    I never wanted any more than I deserved
    From my big pairs I still remember every single time
    I missed stacked off to fish threw my mouse out you great big tit
    Still there's one thing that comforts me since I was
    Always f*** ed and now I'm free

    Don't want to be your poker wench
    Can't even win by accident
    I'd rather leave than suffer this
    I'll never be your poker wench

    Don't want to be your poker wench (all-in, suck out)
    Don't want to be your poker wench (all-in, suck out)
    Don't want to be your poker wench (all-in, suck out)

    The positive vibe shall continue ...

    Took a couple of whacks last night with turned flushes that got beat by boats ....i think my river shove on the 2nd one was probably a mistake ... but live and learn and all that.

    Been playing the $14-$16 ( 10e ) tables on Prima with a bankroll of around $300 ..

    To me thats a touch too much because the 6 max tables on their seem kinda swingy ...ive only played a few hundred hands and i was up $26, then level, then back upto $32, then back to level again

    Having 10% swings in my bankroll every 150 hands or so is not ideal for me :P

    So ive dropped down to the $6-$7 ( 4e ) tables just to play for some fun whilst im busy with work ..

    Its seems much easier to remove $5 off a player at these levels than it is to take $5 off a $10 FR player on Stars ..

    Hopefully i can build the little roll up with my infrequent sessions on Prima for a while ... although i am keeping one eye on the new ipoker software developments ..

    It would be great if ipoker updated to some decent software ... the timing is perfect for them right now .... they would get a shed load of business off the Stars disgruntled nitty grinders if they finally gave us decent software.

    When you said 'Ive also joined up to a poker training program with a high stakes player ', that's not quite what I was expecting...

    Another thing he started to discuss was table selection ..

    I know its been mentioned before ... but when i mass table FR ... i prefer to play against nitty types.

    Ive opened my game to bully these types .. and i think i can call their preflop raises with speculative hands because my implied odds are good .. basically means they fold too much and then dont fold their big hands when met with aggression post flop .... seems like a win win scenario for me ... but maybe thats not the case .

    I just dont see that many fish on the FR tables ... to me a fish is a tight player ... i am considering mass tabling 6 max because there are more fish on these tables and my table selection options would change somewhat ..

    Something to think about me thinks ..
