1) Do you miss OverTheGun at all?

2) 1808 or MMM?

3) Do you think learning how to play KK profitably is the final step in you becoming a world celebrity?

4) Rather play Flushy HU or have a money tree that grows £50 notes in your back garden?



Good thread imo. Liking the photoshop moomin work.



Overthegun was a great community as well as 1808, I don't think I was a part of the other1. I liked how there was a mini community and that we would rail each other deep in tournaments and it sort of helped me to put up good results because I knew other people were watching me. I also looked up to a lot of the players because they had been playing a lot longer than me and had put up some big scores. It had its time and place though and it was probably best that it stopped when it did because the place got really empty for a while.

KK is not as bad for me as it once was lol. Now its more of a case of any hand LOL. In all seriousness though that was one hell of a sick run I had with king king for about 9 months straight. Typing this paragraph is giving me nightmares so I'm going to stop it there.

I'snt it the same thing? In all seriousness though.... FLUSHY IS A LUCKBOX!  I wouldn't mind playing him at hu omaha after the advice he was giving me round your old house that time lol

Did you have a eureka moment where you went from being meh ok to balla or was it a steady progression?

Do you have a favourite tournament that you must play daily/weekly?

sort of answered part 1 of the question at the bottom of page 7 but I will go into a little more detail. At the start of 2006 (yes feels like years ago) I made the jump from 1/2 nl full ring cash to 3/6 6 max and obviously my game underwent a total reconstruction. When I first made the jump I was a solid tag/robot lol.... a few months down the line I evolved into a semi-loose aggressive regular and one of the biggest winners at that limit. I grinded around 30k hands a month for a while and really built my roll at this time (avoiding a lot of big shots at the bigger games such as 20/40 unlike a lot of others in a similar position to me). One target that was really important to me was that when I ran bad for a session I would still try to be at least even. If you cut out the losing days and only have break even or winning days then your roll increases very nicely (obviously this isn't as easy as it once was).

Probably the full tilt $100r 6 max on a wednesday night. It starts at 2am and has a really sick deep structure. A lot of top regular players who are thought to be some of the best out there are actually quite exploitable in the 6 max format. With my laggy game and my 6 max cash game experience I feel like I have a nice edge in this tournament with the deeper stacks compared to most other donkament grinders (I proved this with back to back final tables a few months ago Smiley ). Also the nightly $30r on full tilt which plays very deap and has attrocious players in it who just hand me their chips on a plate! My record in this tournament is by far my best online and has even lead to it becoming nicknamed the MOORMAN amongst the uk mtt regulars haha

Hi ,
Whats the average amount of tournies you play each week, and how much would you expect to shell out on buyins in a week?
Do you like Currys, if so what your favourite dish.
Have you been approached for a sponsorship deal yet?

Cheers
And best of luck in the WSOP.

Just from a quick look at thepokerdb I'm estimating that I have played 1000 tourneys so far this year in 81 days which works out to around 12.5 a day on average (I normally play 5 nights a weak so that would actually be 65 days of play which works out to just over 15 tourneys a day on average). Tourney buyins for a week are pretty sick. My rough estimates for buyins so far this year are about $165k so that works out to over $2k on average for each day, therefore the pressure is always on to pick up results

I love curry's anything thats got a bit of a kick to it but not 2 crazy (no vindaloo!) and hasn't got vegetables in it. Lamb rogan josh, Chicken Jalfrezi and Chicken Tikka Massalla usually hit the spot.

I have talks ongoing with a few parties.... Can't really say anymore on the topic though.

If you are playing a high buy in tournament, say $100r and you are playing with somebody who you percieve to be a nit and they raise UTG and you hold AK in MP. What is your play

a)  fold

b) call

c) 3 bet fold to shove?

d) 3 bet, call 4 bet and bemoan your luck when he turns over a superior hand?

I would do option D because I always give a nit more credit than they deserve. I always think that just maybe one time they will make a move on me but obviously they dont. I guess they just rely on mug's like me to pay them off oh welll nevermind. I later found out that this guy wasn't a nit after he donked off all his chips with something like 92 off, so I guess in that sense I was right to 3 bet call a shove and was just unlucky to run into AA rather than 92 off which he inevitably would of 4 bet shoved versus me.

Would you EVER fold KK pre-flop in a tourney that is not a sattelite?

I've folded Kings preflop in a tourney between 3 and 5 times. Most people say you should never fold Kings online. Sometimes its just way too obvious though.

How much do you analysis your opponents from your tracking software?
Is this analysis done while you are playing or while you doing analsysis from the previous sessions?

ps keep up the good performances

I don't really use tracking software such as pahud as I said in a previous answer. I normally write down notes on the bad players and in what way they are bad and most of my notes on good players are all kept in a little book inside my head. All note taking is done when I'm playing, sometimes when I'm railing a friend deep in a tourney I will note take on the other players involved as if I'm not playing at the same time I can pick up some really good reads.

Unfortunately Coventry. Its too far for home games really but I'm definetly going to try and get to some of the nearer away games next season. Hopefully we aren't in League1 by that time

Hey Chris

congrats on the recent 5k freezeout on stars, i watched basically the whole thing live and then on the replay to try and improve my game by watching sum of the best

i just wondered how u cope with bad beats and real bad spells where nothing goes right

do u sports bet or play casino games? (even tho theyre -EV) if so how much? ( i lost my wholl roll when i was 17 on poker heaven playing blackjack after grinding up from my originall 10 euro deposit to 120 euros playin 5/10cents)

i know on ur blog u say your chop of the stars second chance was a massive achievement as well as ft the mulligan and 750k gaurenteed at the same time, but how does the chop of the 5k freezout rank?

i know ur a busy guy but i would love 2 talk about hands with u to try and improve my internet game as i have just turned 18 and am looking 2 play poker seriously over the summer and try and build a sik roll b4 going 2 uni.

im not an arrogant kid who thinks hes god at pkr as i have soooooo much 2 learn but i would like to learn from a sik dog.

i watch u on stars most nights in especially in the 100r and 50r as well as super t and sunday majors, i was jus wondering who u think some of the underrated mmt players are  (johne147???)

anyways im going 2 get pissed in oxford so keep grinding and tearing up the mtt's!!!!!!
