I left Vegas earlier than i had planned so missed a few of the tournaments i had on my schedule. After the six tournaments, cash games and expenses i lost $1000 on the trip. For me thats a good Vegas result. I was ill for about five of the days i was there, which meant i played less tournaments than i wanted too. On the plus side i discovered the 24 DVD series and i almost watched series one without a break!
Someone posted a bunch of questions on my last post which i'll answer:
Whats the biggest ever pot you have won?
I've had a few around the $150,000 mark. It may actually be this one while i was in Vegas.
Whats the most you have lost/won in a month?
Most won $425,000 in January this year. Most lost $260,000 in March 2007.
Who are your toughest opponents online?
I actually do worst against tight passive players on full tables. I try and run over them way too much, and they pick me off! There are loads of good players, its too difficult to name a few.
What would you do if you didn't play poker?
Hmmm probably some office job i guess. I'd also like to own a bar/restaurant some day!
Would you rather win a bracelet and $200k or no bracelet with a $500k cash?
Its very close. In a few years hopefully i'd say the bracelet, but the extra $300k would buy me the car that i want!
What has happened to Gryko, Pommo and Dubai?
Gryko is a dealer at the new Luton G Casino, Pommo party's for a lving, and Dubai gambles on everything still.
Who is the most overrated player that has a big reputation?
Mostly the players who win one or two tournaments, yet have been losing players except for that for the last five years. There are plenty of them out there......
Are games getting harder online at high stakes every year?
In NL Hold'em the games are on a different level to three years ago. They are very tough to beat. As for PL Omaha, there are still plenty of soft spots especially at the $5-$10-$25-$50 levels....
Do you ever feel guilty about taking peoples money?
Not really. Anyone who plays high stakes online probably is either independently wealthy, or won the money playing poker in the first place.
How important is playing under anonymous IDs online where people don't have a clue that it is you?
It definitely helps especially if you play on sites with a small pool of players. If you have two years experience playing certain opponents, but they don't know it you, then its a massive edge.
