I believe you have used some of the training sites resources.

What sites do you use and what benefits have they given to your game?

Thanks in advance

It has to be done;

What is your favourite pie filling?


now to think of some poker ones.

this is too easy....rhubarb of course


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.


i'm not sure what your situation is boldie, but i didn't rush into going full time & even when i got the william hill deal i carried on part time at work for another year.
up until i was sponsored i never had a big bankroll, 15k max i'd say, but the live scene 3 or 4 years ago was very different to how it is now & there wasn't that pressure to qualify for ept's & all the tv crapshoots etc etc.
c) is probably the most sensible choice.
but i'd prob keep the job & take a shot in vegas, book 3 weeks off, cash in the 2nd seat & use half in the cash games, the other half at the ventetian where they run a deepstack festival during the wsop & def. play the wsop main event because the field is so weak & if it's your day you really could have a life changing run.

Hi Julian thanks for doing this.

I think it is fair to say you are a popular amongst your colleagues on the UK and European circuit. Do you think your personality helps you at the poker table? For example do people in sub conscious way not mind losing a hand to you or not play back you as much etc..

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)

barring vegas, i tend not to overplay myself theses days & am usually fired up for it when i sit down.
william hill are very good, it's pretty much up to me where & when i play

Hi Julian - If you were a new player entering the world of poker (knowing what you know now) would you concentrate on holdem or omaha (cash or tourney) as the best way of making a profit?

Thanks.

Hey Julian,

A few questions for you....

Who would u say is the toughest player u have come up against at the tables?

Is there any big name pro that u played against and thought he was overrated?

Do u try to grind out a weekly wage in the cash games online or live(stakes) when ure at home?

Cheers

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 ?

booger,
no, the thought of 125 miles of flatwater paddling has about as much appeal as a homecooked dinner invitation from tikay....myself & andy black toyed with the idea of the liffey descent in an open canadian, i was drinking, he wasn't...watch this space lol

Did you, at any point this weekend, steal my big blind with filth?  police

Also, do you play much of any of the non-Hold'em games?

Unexpected answer and given me something to think about.

Thanks Smiley

Hi Julian,

Is it dark down there?

How much water is there?

Is there a bucket?

The very last hand of the night goes to Dewi James, who finds ACES and talks Raymond O’Mahoney into calling his all-in preflop bet of 15k.  “If I had AQ, I’d call!” says Dewi.  Raymond calls holding pocket 66’s.
