Default approaching infinity, the long run

Take into consideration what most poker texts argue about the "long run" (the mythical area where luck disappears in poker) b/c of the huge number of hands played. Theoretially, does this mean that one can represent the "the long run" by a quantifiable value, like 10,000,000? after ten million hands I think we've achieved the long run but even more importantly we can use infinity. If one plays infinitely many hands (impossible of course) can't the amount of "luck" be quantified through a process that can be measured graphically? The reason I argue this is b/c as we approach infinity luck is diminishing, correct? So, can luck be determined graphically? Similar to a limit problem in calculus? lol, this is simply something to ponder...but lets here some debate

thanks for reading my theory
