Chris,

On forums such as P5s I've read that a lot of the top tournament players who would be classed as an 'internet' player think that most of the established live circuit players are 'horrible'. But after interviewing a couple of them who have had success in both fields, it's quite probable that there's a lack of respect on both sides (prob best exemplified by Hellmuth calling Zeejustin an internet donk at the 07' WSOP). So, in your small sample size of live play, when playing live what are:

A) the fundemental things that you believe most internet players do better playing live, than live players

B) the fundementals that live players do better than internet players who start playing live

C) Please list some of the emotions you go through on a standard sunday!

Hi Moorman,

I am after some strat advice. I could post it in Learning centre or somewhere, but youre better than most of those donks..................

Ok, online, i have abs no idea OOP.

Scenario is Im quite deep in a tournament, buy in ranging from $75 to $256 on Full Tilt (i can handle this spot ok vs $26 donks) and I have a decent stack at a decent blind level with antes and theres arond 15% of the field remaining (150 out of 1000 for ex.).

Im in the cut off or hijack, or spot just before the hijack and make it like 2.7 - 3.2 BBs. The Cut Off or Button flats it or any1 else who has position on me Flats It!!! They know im weak and read my soul basically.

I hate this, coz i cant seem to win the pot now. I find this spot so impossible.
I have no notes on the players as there are like 1000 entrants, I have no info on the table coz im like 6 tabling at least.

I have AK, AQ, AJ, KQ or anything and the flop always comes Ten or Nine or Eight etc etc. high.

1) If i bet out on the flop he flats it, then takes it down when i check the turn by betting.
2) If i check, he just bets me off it.
3) If i try to check raise, he just calls the check raise, then i have nower to go on the turn.
4) If i get it in by 3 betting or 4 betting the flop or pushing the turn or check pushing the turn he just calls with Top/second/sometimes even third pair.

I cant just check/fold this spot because it happens so so often.

What the fuck do i do pls C-Dog.

I can play this spot easily live, thru live donk reads and doing shit, but i find it v v hard online v decent players.

Oh and a shameless brag..... I shipped my wsop main event seat last night in the $530 qualifer on Party Poker WEEEEEEEEEE.

vwd. Ill probs have a bet on you at the time.

Which Football team do you support, and if so do you ever go?

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 

Are you or your family originally from Coventry or did you just fall in love with their famous brown kit?

Out of the Pocket Fives top 100 who do you honestly rate as being the best players?

What do you think about my MTT game? Biggest leak/strength?

Have you ever employed a poker coach? If so, who, and how did it help/hurt your game?

Are you up lifetime in PLO?

If you have the time, go into your thoughts for leading into the pre-flop raiser.

How much do you balance ranges and play 'unexploitable' in MTTs or do you feel that is over-rated for tournies?

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!!!!!!

matt w

ty for your support. Bad beats and bad spells really suck obv. I get a lot of people sending me bad beats on msn the same as I send a lot of them to other people looking for sympathy. I think you need to be able to laugh at them in a kind of sick way and not take things too seriously. Obviously it really sucks when some donkey gets lucky on you.... but what is more important is whether you played the hand optimally or not. Poker is a long term game and if you keep making the correct decisions and playing fundamentally well then you will get results. I dont buyin to all this ul and run bad shit (however, you can run better in the less important tourneys which obv sucks (coughs). There are a lot of good up and coming players out there, but I have to be biased and say that the top uk players that i speak to regularly such as the stevie's johne147 and doctor_fun are all capable of big things. In particular refecrence to Johne147 he plays a slightly different style to most of the successful internet players I talk to a lot but it seems to work for him and he is definetly a good person to discuss hands with.

Why does John Gale own your soul?

because he pulled a sick bluff on me and I am just a calling station who will be broke within 12 months? (this was nearly 2 years ago fwiw)

Don't give up your dayjob, You will never make it and You've got a lot to learn are all things I was told over a 10 minute period at the wsop in 2006. I'm not gonna go on a rant about John Gale though...... I'll save that for when i knock him out of the WSOP Tongue
