Guys, so sorry that the bottom of the well had gone quiet for a while. I've only just got on the internet for the first time after coming over!

Just off to rail Flushy and play the 2-7 single draw! Will be back on as soon as I can.

only just found this, tis a good well.

do you think there will be room for the GUKPT in future years if pokerstars made all UKIPT's £1k buy ins/expanded the UKIPT?

which 9 players would make for the toughest possible GUKPT starting table?

This is a really interesting one, me and Tommy have been discussing it a fair bit! I guess it's difficult to make a rule for who counts, but we decided on people who play GUKPTs on a reasonably regular basis (excluding the asker of the question!) The people that may well have got in without that cutoff, I feel, would be Roland De Wolfe, Anders Hovoid, Flushy, Andy Teng, Moorman, Pab, Ketul Nathwani, and JP Kelly.

But here's my nine:

Praz Bansi
James Akenhead
Karl Mahrenholz
Matt Perrins
Jake Cody
Toby Lewis
James Mitchell
James Williams
John Eames

It's been a shame to see the GUKPT lose its numbers a little bit, and probably it will never reach the heights again of the first televised year, but I strongly believe that the GUKPT will always have its place. Even if PokerStars were to imitate (or better) the structure and setup enitrely, there is still something that the GUKPT offers that no other tour could.

It has effectively become the tour of the UK regs, and that is a nice thing in two respects. Firstly, there is the social element and the feeling that, with the history, great organsiers, and fantastic additions like the Tower and his team, this is the true UK tour. Furthermore, because a large number of the players in each field are regs, the continuity brings a great dynamic of history that does just not happen in other poker tours. After playing against a few players a good number of times, situations can become alot more interesting as you try to take on the history you have with those players, or try to remember the style you have seen them play in the past. Although the decreased numbers are a shame, this has to be the biggest advantage to have come out of this.

There is no regular event I look forward to playing more than the GUKPT, and I'm sure that I'm not alone, and that it will always have a solid, dedicated fan base that keeps it going. I would also say it's debatable whether Stars would want to shoot at the £1k market in the UK, which is arguably quite different from a £500 market, which is always inevitably going to attract a bigger field.

Tks for doing this again Stu, really enjoy your writing and some top com answers too.

Apart from the obvious WSOP ME, which tourney/event would you most like to win and why?

Apart from the obvious WSOP ME, which tourney/event would you most like to win and why?

One of the strange things about poker is that the times you come close and miss are somehow more disappointing than the times you never had a shot. For that reason, two of my biggest disappointments have come in what would seem like decent finishes, at the last two GUKPT finals. Poker does funny things with your emotions, where obviously it is very exciting and satisfying to have a good run, but the feeling of coming short seems to trump that, and leaves you with a greater appetite for next time.

 Last year, I was excited to take more than average to the final table, but crashed out in 9th at the hands of the crazy Italian Romano Pizzi. At the tournament that Pab won in 2008, I had the chip lead with five left, but let it slip through my fingers. So, I guess my answer to the question is that there might be more obvious answers ( the $25k six max, Monte Carlo and $10k HORSE at the Series would come to mind), but there would be something really sweet about getting a shot at London again.

Hi Stuart,

Congratulations on being crowned the 5th best player in coventry and the 3rd best european player at mixed games!

A few questions?

Do you still consider yourself a youngkidwithtoomuchmoney, or would you say you are now a grownupwithjustaboutenoughmoney?

What would you consider the better way to spend $20,000. Put me in a $100/$100 plo game or freeroll Dubai on a night out?

If Tobasco brought out a new type of sauce that was 3times hotter than the original and had caffeine in it, what would be the maximum you'd pay per bottle?

Thanks!

Quite amazing how some of the things that Stu wrote about 5 years ago were right on the money.  Great read.
