Hello people, it's an honour to be part of "In the well". I look forward to answering all your questions.

Longy-

What edge do you believe you have over the field in any given EPT event? (in roi terms)

Very tough question as a whole lifetime is not enough time to figure out how much edge you have because of variance but I would have to say around 50-100% as a guess. I am 100-200% on pokerstars/party and I think I've ran slightly hot on there.

Is it worth playing them without sponsorship, given the sick varience?

No, I'd say take a shot to anyone. You never know what might happen.





jakally-

How did you get started with Poker, and what kind of games were you playing?

I saw my step-dad playing on pokerstars. When he was at work I would secretly play on play money.

What were your early results like?

Strangely, I was a winning player from the moment I started playing poker. I think I started playing just before the poker boom 5 years ago when games were mega-soft. I remember spinning $25 up to $1000 in a month, this was all the money I had to my name.



GreekStein-

I read somewhere that you read like 10 poker books a while back. Were you a winning player before this or did reading all of them help your game hugely?

I was a winning player before this but the reason why I read all these books was because my step-dad was on life tilt with me and banned me from the computer! I couldn't cope with it and had withdrawal symptoms. Decided 10 poker books was the way to go.

Secondly, who do you think is the most over rated player on the UK circuit?

Not answering this one but there are a lot more over-rated than under-rated players.


dino1980-

-I'm sure you said something about tightening up a lot in 2008. Can you tell us your thought process, is it a direct response to the games getting loser?

I think over the last 2 years a lot of people have been trying a much looser style. The idea is that you play the opposite of the table so I just went with it...

- heads up versus Devilfish - you lolowned him, did you rate him? do you think he's a player that's had his time at the top of UK poker?

Like I said above, the game is changing all the time and I imagine Dave will always try to play a loose-aggressive game, I think he is still one of the better players on the circuit. I played well vs the fish but I did get Aces at the right time Wink

- if you could incorporate one quality from another UK poker player what would it be, who from and why?

Easy! Mickey wernicks patience with a short stack.

tournaments:
- at what stack size are you never open raising/folding

Hard really as when Im short stacked I just get it in, if I am opening 2-3 BB's then it probably means that there is a chance I am folding if 3-bet. I guess you could draw the line at 12BB's

- at what stack size are you never 3bet/folding pre

Woah! I think there are too many factors in poker to answer this question, sorry!




gatso-

1) knowing Matt I would assume he was drunk when he offered you sponsorship. Did you think he was joking?

He must have been drunk to offer me a sponsership, surely! Actually, I was offered sponsership before I even knew matt by a company called jetsetpoker who are now dead; at the time Matt was looking for a sponsored player. I went with Matt to Luton Christmas cracker where I took down the tourney in a rather cocky manner, I guess I had more confidence back then. Matt had his eye on me after this, shortly after I chopped the sunday mill on stars, It went from there...

2) what's your handicap?

7, I used to be off 5 which I hope to get down to next year. I've started to take golf seriously this year and shot under par for the first time ever today.


3) if you could hand a sponsorship deal to an unsponsored UK player who would it be?

Stuart Rutter, his online cash results are sick.



GlasgowBandit
1) Who are your 5 picks to run good at the open?
I assume this is something to do with golf? I don't follow anything on tv.

2) Steak or Stake?
Medium-rare plz

3) Who do you think is the biggest pro donkey on the circuit?
Can't answer this!

4) Who in your opinion is the best UK pro?
Dave Colclough probably, he has run worst than anyone I know though. Julian Thew too.

5) Who is the weirdest player on face book?
lol nh.



AlexMartin-

9. I am pretty good at this, especially since I invented the game. Stu rutter and James Atkin are rubbish though since they never stop talking.

Tightend-

what are your main tips for beating the online cash games at the levels you play?

Game selection is by far the most important. Obviously you need some skills behind the bills but I would have to seperate the good online players and great online players purely down to game selection.

what do you feel is the major weakness in your game?

Live I would say I have a few, my temper changes too often and I don't change gears at the right time. I think this is just down to lack of experience compared to the amount I can play online.

As for online, I am really working super hard online, I really feel like I have no weaknesses right now. You could say this is a rather cocky comment but the only thing that is holding me back right now is the amount of volume I put in. This month I have hardly played any poker, therefore, I have not made much money. I am not sure I even want to put the amount of volume that some of these 5/10 grinders do as it just takes up too much time. I quite enjoy spending fridays and saturdays with friends and weekday afternoons playing golf.

How did friends and family react to the press coverage you recently experienced, and how did you feel about the exposure ?

Kev-
How did friends and family react to the press coverage you recently experienced, and how did you feel about the exposure ?

My newspaper article was quite embarassing. I was told I was going to have a small article in our local paper. I agreed providing my sponsors link could be printed a few times, I had a shock on the Saturday morning. I never told my girlfriend how much money I really made or had so that was a bit of a shock.

I have a very small family so they all knew about my poker stuff and that I was making money out of it. My mum has always been supportive and I am greatful, I recently bought my mum a car for her birthday as well as for my nan as she is stone broke. I think a lot of people knew me from the local area as pretty much nobody plays poker in Cheltenham (The nearest casino is 45 miles away).

My friends are cool, I treat them every now and then as they are just used to 9-5 jobs. I have not made many friends out of poker since I started playing poker but I have a lot of "old" good friends. I was slowly making money from the beginning so nothing was a shock until I won the pokerstars tourney, which was even a shock to myself

Raiser98-

1) Do you have a routine where you 'go to work' for a few hours everyday OR do you play when you feel like it? so, how do you motivate yourself? - and i dont mean just looking at your graphs :p

Often I do get into a routine where I get up at 9, play for a few hours. Go play golf and about 3 or 4 times a week I play from 5 until about 10. On and off with a few games pc games played in between to stop things getting stale. I keep myself motivated by constantly looking for weak games to crush. Being able to make easy money is just a great motivator. I also set myself targets of # of hands I should play in a month. It used to be 30-50k a month but now I have moved up to 10/20nl and 25/50nl game selection is a wee harder and therefore, I play only 15-30k hands a month.


2) Do you have any future plans to invest in the poker industry i.e buying your own site etc or investing in current ones?

Definitely not, I just want to be a poker player.

3) What are your goals in the next 2, 5 and 10 years?

My goals always change because it is only in the last 3 months that I started online cash again. I try not to set myself monetary targets as some things are beyond my control. You may run really bad for a few weeks or your bankroll may take a hit for whatever reason. Either way, it would be nice to make $1M online by the end of 09. It is definitely doable, it's just finding the motivation to do it.

4) How much do you love AlexRoss?

On a love-o-meter something like      HATE [----------------------------0-] LOVE

- How many WSOP events will you play next year, now that you are finally old enough?

- What are the rules of bar poker? Is this something I could specialise in?
