Have you ever won 1 buyin in a cash game and just got up and left?

Yes in fact this is often a big part of my strategy when taking a shot building a bankroll short stacking bigger games. It's not something i'm keen on doing when i think i have a long term significant edge over someone or a game, but i will sometimes play in games that im either a long term dog or neutral in and this would usually be my aim.

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?

Stars is about the only place i regularly still play under the moniker riverdave, i often find it already taken on the newer sites that have cropped up so i have a few different names now usually around a similar theme! I have a rail stalker called 77dave who's actual name is Jim some of you might know him, Hero Worship FTW!
I applaud the way you have embraced the Daveian concepts lets just hope it doesn't all end in a compound fire in the Nevada desert.

What happened to that guy with glasses you used to hang around with?

Matt Arnott he is still around playing small stakes casino tourneys and cash and home games in the South east. He had a spell in the big dealers choice game at The Western but i think it ended a bit sour.

who owes you money on the circuit?

One long outstanding debtor on the London scene but no one on the main circuit. I can be a reasonably hard guy to nip. Sending yourself skint is a great nip avoidance tactic i can recommend to all.

How sick do you feel after blowing a lot..or do you just think "I'll spin it up again ayways so F it, I've had fun"

I'm kind of numb to it i have a long term goal to get in the biggest games/tourneys around with the correct bankroll to play them and i've adopted a different approach to get there. I've also tried the normal grinding approach but with limited success so it's a choice thing and i have a no regrets policy. Usually i learn something new every time so i take the positives from it. Big spin up's are usually followed by long lean painful periods so there is plenty of time to reflect on where better choices may be made in the future.

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

I used to be a total degenerate into everything but i've been pro for 3 1/2 years now and it was very soon after taking that decision that i took the decision to channel all my gamble into poker only. I do have the odd very very occasional lapse probably played blackjack half a dozen times in that period but im a scared hit and runner now rather than a real gambler at the tables. It was a lot of gamble and poker is a great release for it. I don't generally get the buzz thing though because i am trying to make a living afterall. I did feel a little something playing 200/400 PLO last week though.

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.

It depends but if i've busted so that i've left myself very little it's small tourneys something where you can win a lot relative to the buyin. $10 rebuys and $100 freezeouts on Stars have got me out of a lot of holes over the years. I'm currently playing 2 $10 PLO rebuys.
If i've left a decent amount to recover from HU cash is the usual route to riches or ruin fairly quickly. It is so swingy though and i think in future i will only use it as a quick building tool rather than a regular game once i have some kind of established bankroll. I've learnt in the recent period that i'm a lot more consistent at 6 max as far as PLO goes. NLH i'm loathe to play anything other than HU so this will see me playing even less of that game.

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?

Will answer this one when i have a bit more time as requires some thought and could be a long one.

No it just feels alien on the very odd occassion i've picked up a cue lately, and so frustrating not being as good as i used to be (however bad that was) so i don't even play for fun anymore.

The recovery has begun just managed to take down the $10 PLO rebuy on blonde for $700 it was between 2&7 BBs last week but it's a start and still got the Stars one going with 20 left. Fk my life is the phrase of the moment.
