Thanks very much to riverdave...Dave Penly..for agreeing to answer your questions for a week

riverdave is, quite frankly, a bit sick as those who follow his online "spin ups" and "spin downs" will be aware!


Recently in the live scene he won the PLO Event at the DTD Norwegian Poker Championships for £13,000. In March he won the £500 event at the GUKPT Vic week for £26,600 (becoming the first player to win two GUKPT festival events this year) and his results go back years, all over the UK and Europe.

Dave finished in the top 150 in 2006's WSOP Main event for $47,000. Yet as the mood takes him he'll still be occasionally found in small comps at Luton or London.

Online he can turn micro stakes into fortunes and back again. Recent successes include scores for over $25,000 on Stars in events such as the $109, the $55 Omaha rebuy and the $88 shorthanded.( Recent failures include losing it again..Dave can confirm or deny this!).

In a recent article on The Hendon Mob Dave's friend Neil Channing says:

"Dave Penly may be one of the sickest degenerates I've ever met, but it doesn't stop me admiring him as a great player. I was delighted that we got heads-up, where we decided to do no business and just play, and I was genuinely pleased that he got a decent result which he richly deserved. I'm sure Dave's trip on the poker rollercoaster will carry on being a turbulent one, but I'm equally sure that the highs will be totally amazing."


Away form Poker Dave is a mean pool player, supports Woking FC and ...no that it, he plays poker!

As someone actually called Dave and using the name dave in your screen name, what are your thoughts on people like me, not called Dave, but who uses Dave as a screenname?

Is your gambling purely poker or do you bet on sports, play table games etc.

When you have to start rebuilding again, where do you start ?

I know for me it's full-ring PLO, and I may have to put some weeks of serious hours in at the 25c/50c and then 50c/$1 tables before I can build up a half-decent roll again. And I sometimes find it really hard to find the drive to do this.

Are you going to Vegas for the WSOP this year? If so playing what?


Please talk us through your spell living and playing in Vegas after your good result at the WSOP in 2006. Why did you do it and what happened?

Ooooh - there has to be more to this question than silver shorts is letting on??

Probably the standard person who owes everyone on the board money.....

P.S. You know who you are!

P.P.S. Any danger of paying me back?

Thanks for asking me to do this it's a bit of an honour and Tighty assured me there were a few requests for me to do it so of course i was happy to do so.

It comes at a pretty apt time as i spent the last 2 weeks on a very sick spin up on Full Tilt playing mainly PLO around the 25/50 and 50/100 levels but occassionally dabbling up to 200/400 and with hu NL around 50/100. It of course came to an abrupt end with a pretty nasty 3 day downswing at the end of last week, so i'm in a bit of a recovery mode as we speak.

Ask anything you like poker or non poker related and i'll try and answer everything within reason.

Damn you. You offered to sell me that Debt for 50p. I had a buyer at double that. Look, it's only a £grand, get over it.....Wink
