ok mate.   good luck in Copenhagen. Will watch your progress with great interest.Thought it was strange that you were up and posting early, but figured the kids would have influenced this   My mistake for thinking you could possibly be in Nottingham now you are International Star, Poker God and Jetsetter. Please accept my humblest apologies for being so out of touch . LOL . Btw , its prob warmer where you are !!!!!

If you remember I did have a reason for playing the £3 rebuy as I had a student I was teaching to play on the other table. I was hardly gonna put her in a big comp was I? No shame in the small comps anyway they can be great fun.

As a lead on from that- do you find you cant concentrate as much on the smaller competitions now you have tasted big wins. Do you still see a grand or 2 at dtd as worth winning or do you find you only really try to focus in the big events and treat the smaller comps like socials.

Oh i remember mate..all in good fun Smiley

one wonders at the extent of 'her' coaching...
a grand or two still means alot & making any final table will always be special, so yeah i do take the local comps fairly seriously but my record in them off late is pretty crappy...no dtd final tables yet

rofl.. yeah I was wondering that at the time too Wink

Yo Julian

You are at an important stage in a big tournament. Two tables of six players left and first prize is $1 million. You are in the BB and everyone folds to the SB. He raises it up and you call with QK suited. By chance when you glance over at him you see his hole cards are 82 off. The flop comes 297 and he now bets about 15% of his stack and you have him covered. What do you do? (you also know this guy from playing on the circuit and often have a few drinks at the bar with him)

ffs,
i don't hear from you for like 12 months & then you come up with this?
this sure sounds like a trick a trick question.....but you're telling me i can get my chips in first with overcards??
a clear push & 'suckout if called' situation.
xx
ps, u in copenhagen?

hehe i'm the big 30 in a few days so am off skiing so i couldn't make Copenhagen! Will see you at the Irish Open or an EPT soon no doubt. GL

I always have trouble with tipping and tipping different amounts depending on outcomes so i'd like to know how much you tip (if at all) in each of these circumstances, assume the standard of dealing is typical of a live event:
- You win a £1k tournament for £100k
- You win a £10 tournament for £1k
- You cash in a £1k tournament for £2k
- You don't cash in a £1k tournament
- You win a £2k pot at 5/10
- You win a £200 pot at 5/10
- You go an hour without winning a pot at 5/10
Any additional rationale would be appreciated as well!

Thanks!

the 500 structure should allow you alot time & chips which means you won't be under as much pressure to accumalate chips early.
give yourself a level or 2 to settle in, enjoy the experience, play wih confidence & believe that you can make that final table.

Right all, 10 days since we started this so Julian's well is now closed for new questions (though I am sure if you ask nicely he might do a few more over time!)

New player along soon I hope (when he answers his email!)

Thanks very much to Julian, great informative answers and to all those who asked questions

I didn't ask any questions, but I thought it was a fantastic thread. A wonderful insight into the mind if one of the world's greatest poker players.

So you've had the reputation of the nicest man in poker. Thus far it's been completely justified.

However today you completely blew up on the dtd update thread and we saw a different thewy - what caused this?

Will you be a bad boy of poker from now on? I heard you, Andy Brashaw, Adebayo and Tony G were forming a crew. True?
