Welcome to the new "In the Well" feature where blondes ask successful players their burning questions!

Each blonde can ask a maximum of 5 questions of the player...poker or non-poker related,which the player will answer. We hope!

Each player's time in the well will last ten days, at which point another player steps up

Please keep this thread for questions and answers only

discussion of the idea, and all feedback about ways to develop and imporve the feature should be posted on this linked thread  http://blondepoker.com/forum/index.php?topic=30634.msg643274#new

Thank you

So we kick off,questions to run until Friday 22nd February, with


Julian Thew, EPT Champion, double GUKPT Champion, William Hill sponsored professional player

How do you maintain your health with all the hours you need to work through the night? I'm interested particularly in your diet and any exercise you might do and how poker affects your family/social life?

Can you still remember the nervousness/excitement of your first ever poker game ?  And are there times now that make you feel the same ?

How has top-level tournament poker changed in recent years and what adjustments to your game have you felt you've had to make?

How do you run so good? Seriously, is it some voodoo thing or witchcraft?

nice!


OK...Now a hypothetical scenario for you.

Say you are a recreational poker player who would definetly not mind giving being a pro a whack. But you have no bankroll to speak off and reckon you'd want 100k$ before you turn pro.

Say you win 20k$ by winning 2 WSOP ME packages on stars (so you get the cash)

Would you;

A; Play the Main Event with half of your winnings?

B; Play a smaller tourney (1500$ PLO) just for fun, and because you think you have an edge in that game, and go over to Vegas to take advantage of the cash action there during the WSOP? (assume you are a half decent cash player who'd expect to make a profit out of doing that)

C; Use your bankroll management skills and use the 20k to build it up online where you won't have the expenses that going to Vegas would bring with it and maybe just play a GUKPT touney if you wanted to play one.

that's a very pertinent question; i've been seeing a sports psychologists this year & the first thing he asked me was, 'are you fit & healthy?'
my honest answer had to be, 'no not really'.
i used to be, but the hours i sometimes keep now & my general lethargy when it comes to all things healthy have been my weakness.
so yes, i aim to sort it out, it just may take some time & lots of prodding.
family-wise, they are all very supportive of what i do, it wasn't an overnight thing, but i'm sensible & they know the house keys won't ever end up in a pot lol

oh yes, that buzz will never be forgotten.
i don't suffer too much from nerves now but the big competitions are still very exciting - having said that i'm drooling at the prospect of the 300 at walsall this evening, it's a local competition, the crack'll be good & making any final table is always special

I only play poker when I am in the mood, and it might seem strange but when I want to really win.

What do you do if your not in the mood to play poker? or your mind is not 100% right to play your best?

Also if your sponsor wants you to play in an event and you really are not in the mood to play poker? (Yes I know its your job)

hi Julie...............have you ever been tempted to follow in the footsteps of Paddy Ashdown and Sir Ranulph Fiennes and compete in The Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Marathon ?

Edit : Kind of related to Acidmouse's post

How much of your life is poker - do you live, eat, sleep, drink it? Or do you treat like a job (do the job, then do other things to relax/for fun).
