    Hey screw you fella .. ive only ever had 2 losing months .. and they where back to back a few years ago.

    Granted ... since i lost all my poker records on my last hard drive ive not bothered to keep such detailed records ... so its possible i may have another losing month... although i doubt it would be much.

    Im a winning player ... my only problem is the lack of volume due to tilt .

    THAT LADIES AND GENTLEMAN ..IS ABOUT TO CHANGE ..

    PS ... we are apparently going to get a $hit load of snow fall tonight and tomorrow morning ....should be fun !
    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.

    Bubbled the last one when it was folded to me in the SB and BB had a hand.

    I lost 3 out of 6 to this exact situation ... if its folded to you in the SB then just fold because Stars will always have BB sitting there with a winning hand.

    This lesson comes free of charge ... the next one will come with a small fee ..

    550W HEC Desktop Power Supply
    MSI Z77A-G43 Intel® Z77 ATX Motherboard - CrossFireX™ Support

    8GB DDR3 1600MHz Memory (2x4GB) Kit
    1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 - 384 Cores,DVI,mHDMI - 3D Vision Ready
    120GB SSD - OCZ Agility 3 Solid State Drive
    1TB SATA III 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 64Mb Cache, 8ms Hard Drive

    The only slight concern i have is the SSD, im sure there are better alternatives out there ( Samsung 830 or 840 )and maybe when i phone them i could possibly have a alternative option .

    Dogs !! .. put my mind at rest and tell me that this SSD is fine for what i need

    Are you planning on playing poker, or solving complex equations about quantum computing?

    The Samsung range of SSDs are currently very highly rated, and if you put me on the spot to say which is 'better' then I'd pick the Samsung. Will you notice the difference? Probably not. Any SSD is such an improvement on a HDD that you'll be grinning ear-to-ear. Unless you used to make a cup of tea whilst Windows was booting, in which case you'll have conflicting feelings as you realise you now need to change your routine to reach ultimate efficiency.

    I have an OCZ Vertex 2, which is an older model than this one. I've had mine over 2 years now, and no issues with either reliability or performance. SSDs are far more reliable than HDDs, but with any it's always useful to have a warranty, and essential to have a backup. Remember, if it isn't backed up, it isn't important.

    I will give you a final reminder of this though:

    There's nothing wrong with spending money if you want to. Just don't think that you have to.

    You do realise that this last bit was unavoidable and will only lead to me having a re-think !!

    I may have a quick look at a cheaper option .....

    Re: The Llanlad ( bumpy ) road towards SUPERNOVA !

    Just played a 500 hand session ..first one in 16 days

    Pretty frustrating break even session with the usual really .. kept losing with AK or AQ and losing with KK,QQ and JJ to Ax hands.

    Those seem to follow me for some reason .

    But all is good ... did not let it bother me .. and will be looking to get some hands in before the month end so i can get more hands in my database so TST will be a little more helpful when i start using it.

    Re: The Llanlad ( bumpy ) road towards SUPERNOVA !

    Computer has been purchased ! ... delivery before the month end.

    Once it arrives and is set up in my home .. i will move onto purchasing HEM2 and TST .

    Not used HEM2 before, but i think its the right time to take the plunge.

    Hopefully have EVERYTHING configured and running great by 1st February which will coincide with a lot of my work being up to date and finished.

    Im not sure if this recent job i have will finish at the end of the month, i have a feeling ill be there after this period .. all depends if the women returns from depression or whatever she has.

    Just means ill have to play more in the evening ... which im happy to do .

    BRING IT I SAY ... THE GAMES ARE ABOUT TO BEGIN !!

    And I'm sure you will. It will be at least April before you break one of the rules

    I'm confused.

    On which site does 2 days of activity per month and less than 1000 hands gain you supernova status?
    To infirmity and beyond

    What you people are forgetting is that our hero will be armed with more computing power than most small countries. That, coupled with his natural resolve and general good fortune, means this quest will be a walk in the park.
