Questions:

1. How did you make the jump between semi -> pro?
2. Kinda similar to Pauls question, but what events you playing in Vegas and your reasonings behind those particular ones?
3. Is it true the lemonade I bought you made you run like god?

What do you think your ROI would be in the WSOP Main event if you could play it to infinity?

What is the largest number of Jagerbombs you can recall having in one night?

Cheers for the questions guys. I might be a bit slow this time, as I've got tons of stuff to do before Vegas on Monday, but I'll answer them all eventually.

1) Yes,that was one of my proudest ever moments. In fact, I was so happy in my celebrations at getting asked for ID, that the guy didn't bother in the end. I've been handing out that advice to 16 year-old cousins ever since.

2) Only if you have a freakishly big gob. Yes, I once raced a bottle of some alcopop against someone pouring the same bottle into a big bowl. It was a draw.

3) One of many son, one of many.

How many events do u plan to play in this years wsop

Foot long chicken teryiaki.

I'm hoping to play about 16 events. But not the ones you would expect...

At the start of the year, two things came together. I guess I had always been aware that the way to make that tiny shot of getting a bracelet slightly less tiny would be to play not in the Holdem events, but in the mixed game events; and at the turn of the year, I felt that I wanted a new challenge in poker. Whilst I love live poker and its challenge, the part of poker that maybe can become a little monotonous is the grinding online, and so I decided to throw my energy into something new.

On New Year's Day I realised that I would have exactly five months til the first mixed game event of the Series, and decided to see what I could do. At the start of the year, I had never played more than a few hands of any of the games, and barely knew the rules of most of them. In fact, even by the start of the Series, I will not have play any mixed game hands in a 'live' setting. It's a plan that could still go hopelessly wrong, but I was determined to give it a go. Straight away, I realised that whislt I was trying to pick up about six different games, there were all still just poker. Though it was six games with very different rules, the challenge was to just try to fit the same skills of hand reading, position, bluffing and balance around the different structured games.

It was a funny coincidence that my push started on the 1st of January, and my first event would be the 2-7 Triple Draw on the 1st June, and so I have had a time for reflection on the 1st of each of the months in between. By the 1st of February, things didn't feel so good. I do alot of other stuff outside poker, and so poker time was limited. In that time, I was aware I would still have to grind online a fair bit to try to establish a Vegas roll. The games seemed very hard to pick up at first, and by the end of January, I still didn't know the rules of razz.

However, February saw a decent surge; I had the idea of getting some coaching in each of the different games and no longer had to work it all out on my own. I was also beginning to realise that you can bring the ideas of no-limit agression to even limit games like stud, and that maybe the old-schoolers had missed out on this.

A few days after the start of March, I made a big decision. Apart from a few live tournaments, I would dedicate all of my poker time to learning the mix. The last three months would be the only time in my poker career which I could compare in any way at all to a tough, normal job. However, it's been alot of fun at the same time, and I'm really raring to go.

That's a long ramble and I haven't yet answered the question (the subway one was easier to be honest); I will still play 3 or 4 of the traditional holdem events. Apart from that, I'll be playing as many of the mixed games as I can. The ones that stand out are the $2.5k Triple Draw, a game that is probably my favorite and strongest, the new $10k HORSE, an event that will bring most of the different parts together, and the championship event in 2-7 No-limit Single Draw, simply as the most bizarre of a random bunch.

Did you manage to come out a winner over the last 3 months? What stakes were you mainly playing?

Who is nicer, you or your brother Tom?

Has anyone tried to knuckle you in a tournament before?

Well done Sunday, was nice to meet you too.

Questions:

1. How did you make the jump between semi -> pro?
2. Kinda similar to Pauls question, but what events you playing in Vegas and your reasonings behind those particular ones?
3. Is it true the lemonade I bought you made you run like god?

1) This may sound strange, but I still don't consider myself a full time pro. A few years ago, I went through that progression that might be familiar to most; that change from being scared of the casino to realising that actually, maybe I could make more money than I lost. At that point, I wanted to see if I could make a living not from playing poker, but by forming job around it. It would mean that a necessary part of that would be to continue playing alot of live poker, which is what I most wanted to do. However, if the plan worked, it would provide a security which poker itself never could.

It's a slightly bizarre fit when the amounts of money I play for in poker can decimate the amounts I get from modestly paid jobs, but this is the reason that I've kept the two pools of money completely seperate. It has formed two different realities, but has worked surprisingly well.

What always excited me about poker was the opportunity to make a living around something you love doing, which is a ridiculously lucky thing, and what never really excited me was an attempt to try to win lots of money. I believe that the cliches are true, and that there is not so much that big amounts of money can add to life, and alot that it can take away.

2) See above. Time will tell whether it was a good decision!

3) Something definitely did for a while! When I look back, that ace on the river against Roberto was perhaps the most crucial moment of the tournament. It was the difference between going down to 400k and giving Roberto a very playable stack, or going up to 700k and eliminating arguably the most dangerous player at that time.

What is the largest number of Jagerbombs you can recall having in one night?

Who is this ROI? No, I guess I don't really know as I don't play online tournies (which is also why ROI might not be so big). I would say both that it's bigger than any other big tournament in the world, but also sadly far smaller for everyone than it would have been during the poker boom years. Maybe 1.4?

Jagerbombs not so many, but I remember the good old days of being able to knock back double Snobs Specials, and having five of them in one night. I did beat Dubai just before Christmas in the 3 Jager-2 pints- 3 more jager alcohol obstacle course, but I feel his heart wasn't really in it, and I want a rematch.

Favourite TV programme? High Stakes Poker/Gavin and Stacey/The Thick of it

When was the last time you had a proper go at someone? Ummmm. At Partouche last year, I suffered my only ever big angle shoot, where a French guy put his chips over the line, got a reaction, and took them back (yes, he was allowed too, he could speak French better than me) I didn't let him get away with it too easily.

Is it true that if I kill you, I become you? No, it means that you will come back as a Blade in your next life.

Best short joke you have heard in a while? I don't think it's fair to laugh at short people

Have you ever had kebab as a pizza topping? No

Could you beat Julian Thew in a fight? I would go at him full pelt, see him smile, and back away, knowing that the world was a good place.

Could you beat James Atkin in a fight? With both hands tied behind my back

Could you, James Atkin and Julian Thew beat Barry Neville in a fight? If the three of us ever have one day to live, we should give it a try

England to win the World Cup or the Owls to get back in the Prem - which would you prefer? Wednesday by a mile. Hearts not in it quite so much for England. I've been to a couple of England away games, and would honestly say that the atmosphere at Wednesday away mathces trumps it.
