I have recently returned from 12 months travelling in Oz, New Zealand and SE Asia.  The bulk of the expense of my year off was covered by Bankrolls - not huge as I hold pretty senior HR jobs and work primarily and play poker as a hobby.

I would like to play the £1000 main event at Bolton.  I have been back in the UK since 1st June - after having only played the Aussie Millions (Shaun Conning, exit on Poker News - satellited in at 2nd attempt) while away and having a complete break after a pretty poor 2007 (well very poor except a 2nd in 100r before I left for $6k and 2 top 10s in a week in Mansion 100k also on here if you search) until I left UK.  Since returning I have played limited tournes in Stars and Party - last 120 days shows a ROI of 47% on Stars (claypole) and 247% on Party (claypoleuk) - both on OPR or search claypole on pocket fives.  This despite some tough exits, including Sunday Million when deep this week.  In addition I have taken down $25 rebuy on Microgaming for c $5500 since I have been home.  Played live once at the Westen 250+100 since home, went into day two 5th/14 then ran KK into AA and AK into QQ in pretty quick succession.  I played rarely live in UK prior to travelling due to work commitments - packed in 2/3 trips to Vegas a year with numerous cashes at $100 to $300 buy ins (Despite doing my sack at 2005 WSOP when I roomed with Kal and learned a few lessons).  Very rarely play Luton - did chop the £100 clsoing tourne at the old casino - think there is a bragging post on here somewhere

I feel I am playing pretty well at the moment - back to the standard of 2005/6 when I ran pretty good on line including winning first ever Sunday Lunch at $500 beating Doc12345 heads up for $14,000 and the old $100 / $50 rebuy on Prima for $7500 three times in 18 nights (promptly did it in Vegas!) and numerous other 4 figure cashes.  As I have just started new job and had numerous credit cards to clear after 12 months off and a flat to do up after tennats in - and also because I play better when staked (the gambler in me never goes away) - I will play this event if I can sell between 40% and 60% max of myself.  Straight % including juice, so £106 for 10% and straight % of any returns.

Happy to buy myself in at Luton and collect at Bolton if I get commitments from regluar posters on here and names I recognise who will be there.  If I have 40% commitment by friday 29th I'll buy in at Luton that weekend....if not I may buy in anyway.

PM if interested please - no probs if not - as byron caid said FLAMEAWAY lolol

Shaun - Claypole
