    Back due to popular demand .... well one guy anyway ... the quest begins again

    Well here goes another year and another Llanlad's smooth ride to glory and financial security.

    Im starting with 100 lol ... around $147 and jumping straight into $10 FR Zoom.

    Will give it a 100k hand sample and re-evaluate then ... so ill make a decision in November .. NOT THIS TIME !!

    Will be adding another $90 over the course of the next 3 weeks to take advantage of the mega bonus offer ... although knowing Stars ill get the bare minimum offer as usual.

    Played 2500 hands so far and down 2 buy ins, but running over 3 buy ins in EV so not too bad considering its a new database and i have no hands on anyone.

    Let the epic thread begin and a return to the ITH glory days.
    There is a big misunderstanding between the concept of talent and skill, talent you have naturally but skill is only developed by hours and hours of beating on your craft... nobody got to where they were without hard work.

    I take it back ... just deposited 30 and got a $20 cash bonus ( 3.8% chance of that ) ... good start

    Ill be depositing 90 instead of $90 too.

    Lost 5 buyins in about 200 hands to start off with ..

    Now running at 9.5bb/100 after 4200 hands or so ... EV is over 16bb/100 .

    Good start and volume will start to increase dramatically starting next weekend.

    I played the Storm at the weekend. To celebrate the emergence of this thread, I thought I'd give 10% to Llan's bankroll.

    It didn't go very well.

    Well that's no bloody good ... at least hawk would pull some random rubbish and keep me in profit whilst i went out after 4 hands.

    Exactly 6300 hands in ... running at 9.92bb/100 .

    Finally got my computer back and seems to be working fine ( touch wood ) ... i can now play on big monitors instead of a silly laptop.

    Still Party - although "playing" is a bit of a misnomer - to be honest the 40k hands covers about 6 months!

    I may take one last lunge at 50NL and then retire and become a professional short stacker just to annoy people.

    Or I could just stay at 50NL and play one table at a time just to annoy myself.

    Or even give up Holdem for Omaha

    Either way my ambitions have lowered considerably, I guess if I could clear a grand a year that would be a good result.

    Got to laugh at Stars sometimes.

    When it decides to go all Grim on you ... he never seems to stop.

    The same old cannot hit with Ax but every other hand including KK and QQ always has a A flop.

    The you start flopping draws left right and centre but never hit any .. and the one you do hit .. you wish you had not.

    But then at least you flop the nut flush and the turn pairs the board and he has to have flopped a set.

    At least you then turn top 2 with AQ and watch the river put 4 card diamond board and he just has to have some rag diamond card.

    All in the space of ten minutes ...

    These threads used to be more active. Eric should probably send out a newsletter to ensure everyone knows Llan is back.

    Im back all right ... just not quite got into the swing of things yet and been faffing with TN2 etc looking for the ideal table layout options i can get.

    Will be moving back to the reg tables as soon as ive got it working .... then watch me go !!

    100k hands per month will be standard ... i want to hit 150k hands in a month at some point.

    This ladies and gentleman ....is the new Llanlad
