    The Llanlad ( bumpy ) road towards SUPERNOVA !

    Its that time of year folks where the foundations are laid down for future miracles.

    This year ... you will all bare witness to a miracle ... its the kind of thing you will tell your grandchildren about with a tear in your eye in years to come.

    I dont care what you will be doing towards the end of 2013 ... all you will be thinking is ... i cannot believe he actually did it !!

    I am basically going to start with Bronze status and $340 and eventually reach Supernova this year.

    There will be NONE of the following this year :

    1. Switching between sites, i will stay at Grim City for the whole year, unless some ridiculous bonus pops up somewhere else thats impossible to ignore before returning back to Stars asap.

    2. Absolutely no more whinging about stuff i cannot control on a poker table.

    3. Not a single " i quit " moment in this thread for a whole year.

    4. Laziness is not acceptable in any form at all, this is the year of PRODUCTIVITY !

    5. Losing to TP in FF again is not acceptable either.

    6. Losing to hawk in anything is seriously not acceptable.

    THE PLAN FOR THIS YEAR IS AS FOLLOWS :

    1. Buy a new computer, purchase the appropriate software and configure accordingly - this will be done in January at some point, hopefully when im less busy with work.

    2. Start off 16 tabling $10 FR and try and pass $1k before moving upto $25, hopefully this will be done before March, im not sure of the VPP's at $25, will re-evaluate once im at this point.

    3. Stop procrastinating .. a serious issue of mine and something that wont be tolerated in 2013.

    4. Get a lot fitter, once ( In Feb ) i can do more of my work at home i can start back on the running machine and back in the gym, going to have a year where i really look after myself - i will have my abs back by the summer.

    5. Gate crash hawk's wedding and cause mayhem sounds interesting.

    6. Have a friggin holiday with my lad ... REALLY REALLY want him to experience something new, feel ashamed that ive not done this tbh.

    So there you have it ... let the games begin !!

    No doubt it will start off slow in January due to work load, but this gives me time to get the computer sorted .. once thats in place its all system are go.

    PS .. just played my first 340 hands .. +131bb

    Anyone fancy a sweepstake as to when all of these will be broken? My bet is by the end of February

    LLanlad, I wish you all the luck in the world. Read some self-motivation books and The Poker Mindset again to try and stay on course.

    Also, add to your goals - 10,000 posts! You could be the 4th Member to reach that goal. You are already about 50% more than me!

    Thanks for all of your contributions to his community over the years and here is hoping 2013 is a big year for us all!

    For some reason I sense a new focus and determination in young grasshopper - the force is strong in this one.

    (I'm going for mid-March)
    To infirmity and beyond

    Thanks Matthew .. its going to be a good year .. I owe it to ITH to do something positive !

    It starts here.

    I was reading the start of last years thread and there are a lot of familiarities with how i feel this year ... and probably most years to be fair.

    It looks like i was busy in January last year ( same this year ) and did not start much poker until Feb 1st .. took me TWO days to have my first strop .. lol

    It will not happen this year.

    Something did make me chuckle though ... my first hand of the year was .... AKo, which i lost 13.5bb when i bluffed the river and was called by 88.

    I thought that was kinda ironic and a bit funny .. AK or Ax even will not be a issue this year.

    Got a job to do over the weekend ... going to start early tomorrow morning and want it done by Sunday ... NO PROCRASTINATION !!

    Will try and fit in some poker at some point over the weekend.

    Still working my arse off right now .. hoping to see some daylight in a week or so.

    In the meantime ... a new computer is back on the agenda .. i reckon i can get one sorted and set up before the month end.

    Just looking through the =4 computer thread and noticed a poster called " GrimIsCool " ... which one of you lot is this ????, the fact hes from London might narrow it down

    Haven't you posted this before? Are you recycling your "interesting" things to say?

    I think your right ... it was ringing a bell when i was writing it.

    iirc .. nobody admitted to being GrimIsCool ... but im pretty sure its someone from here because that name only means something here !!

    You know, I'm pretty sure we've covered this too. If all you're going to do this year is re-hash old posts from your last thread, then I'm just going to post links to our previous exchange:

    vent-rant-and-rave-f3/the-2012-llanlad-zen-like-thread-is-here-t4557265-375.html#p7716818

    In the meantime, I'm considering defecting to Zenjo's thread. There's a man who knows how to start the year properly.

    Wait what !! ...

    Granted .. this thread has started a little slow due to no poker being played .. but if you check last years thread i only started playing at the beginning of February.

    Hang in there Dogs .. show some loyalty towards me !! ... mark my words, this will be the most amazing Llanlad thread ever !!

    PS ... we will probably have to go over the finer points of our last computer discussion again in a bit

    Im off to check Zenjo's thread to see what the fuss is all about.

    Hmmm...

    Has to be South Wales ... we dont have windmills up North !

    You can remove that trainwreck for starters ... this is going to be a place of tranquillity with a sprinkling of Llanlaaand !
