Sick graph hope the stable continues to crush for you, love reading the Blog.

What exactly made you buy a Lama, and what does looking after one entail?

Lol, small difference between adopting a lama for 35 quid/ 12months at a farm or buying one. That stable graph, 90% of it is from before they joined your stable right?

Hey man, I think it was very clear that I wasn't suggesting that we made $8m in the last 1 year

And yes, Barnaby lives in a farm near where I live in England rather than galavanting around Budapest and showing him off to girls in my bar. It was just a fun original present to a girl, we go to see him next week, but when I post the pics please don't tell them that I'm using the chrome filter on my phone.



Good luck in your games Mr Anon <3

its graph of all the players games from all time. Lots of people transitioned from cash games, or HU sngs or live arena etc and many used to play a lot lower.

Thanks for the <3 for Fate. Unfortunately, the operation didn't go well, she is fine and didn't get worse, but the Surgeon unfortunately couldn't help as he intended to because the nerves were dead. She remains very happy though!

Regarding the Llama it is pretty simple, girl I was dating loves Llama and wants to visit them,there is this really cool place where you can do different levels of adoption starting from like 35/year where you just get a certificate to lifetime adoption where you have a say about more things about them. I wasn't really into them previously, but when I saw his face I thought he seemed like a lot of trouble (in a good way) and it was better than buying her perfume for her birthday.

Thanks for the stable well-wishes, last 2 days we had:

1st kick off
2nd warm up
1st winamax 300 (big one!!)
1st big55
2nd b109

They work so ****ing hard and try their absolute best, its really great to see people maximising their potential.

Woke up today for a business meeting where I'm the middle man between Iran, Kurdistan and London. Went very well and may have to take trips to Iran, Kurdistan and Sri Lanka in the upcoming month! Lots of cool pics from these places I hope.

What happened between games ~725k and 775k? Must have been a touch breakeven stretch.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Really thrilled to announce that I've signed a deal to be an ambassador for Party Poker.

Over the last few months I've spoken a lot to them and given feedback regarding software, structures, schedules and general strategy. Party have been absolutely great and really listened to all of my feedback and have been very quick to implement suggestions. The guys working behind the product now really "get it" and more important want to make it work and are prepared to take risks and take shots at big tournaments, like last week when there was over $100k overlay in a $109 tournament! They have ripped their schedule to pieces and built it back up strategically.

In previous years I hated Party Poker, I didn't trust them as there was no real link between the players and I didn't like their software or the product and games that they offered. I didn't even have the software installed.

Late last year I started to see small improvements and began to play the weekly $215 on a Sunday, it was a good tournament but I didn't feel like there was much else. As 2016 came the offer really started to improve and I now play a good % of my volume on Party and intend moving forward to play even more. Whilst I am giving a role of helping make changes and tweaks to the schedule and give my input it would be natural to assume that I will look after myself and the recent inclusion of a $109 rebuy tournament this Sunday as well as a big improvement in the mid-high stakes offering but as an ambassador for the site I am going to take the role extremely seriously and always think about the big picture and the ecology of the site.

For over two years I worked as a full time poker ecologist and really loved the role and I'm a big geek for anything related to the poker industry. Because I am both a player and a supposed industry expert I know that Party is far from the finished product and there is a lot of room for improvement and a lot of bugs that need to be fixed. For example I think the bet slider should change to allow you to bet what you want easier, I'd like the fonts to be bigger to make it more clearer when multitabling and think that the lobby and filters section could be optimized to allow you to find the right games for what you want.

I am not the kind of guy who will bull**** and promote a product I don't believe in, Party are doing a great job now but they know they have to keep improving their whole offer if they are really going to become the biggest and best poker site in the world. What I can say is that I've met the guys behind the scenes, they care, they understand and they are very open to constructive criticism.

I believe that I can help the site become the best poker site in the world like it was not so long ago.

I won't centre this blog around Party, I'm still going to blog normally, but if you see me at a tournament this year in Vegas I'll be wearing a Party Poker patch.

I'll also be streaming on Twitch occasionally, writing some articles and being involved as much as possible.

For me it's a very proud moment, I've turned down sponsorship deals previously because of the brands that I didn't feel comfortable representing and I'm definitely never going to be a puppet boy. Now I'm employed by a site as their ambassador and I have the chance to help create the best poker site in the world for the community, that's so exciting and challenging for me.
