Never watched any twitch streams before or any poker videos but watched an hour or two last
night and thought it was excellent.

Your thought processes were explained really well and you came across as confident and articulate
without being arrogant.

Is there any place you can see it again as I told my lad it would be good for him to see and learn from ?

Finally , do you think you are giving your competitors an insight and possibly an advantage over you
by doing the stream ?

Thanks for doing it , appreciated.

Hey thanks a lot. It was a little bit tough at first, dealing with the zooming in and out and the chat etc, but overall I enjoyed it.

I definitely will be giving away a little bit of ev doing it, in fact I had around 5-10 people message me during the stream asking me nicely/and in some cases not so nicely Cheesy To stop saying so much

Hey mate


Hmm in general I like to tip a lot in non poker stuff. If somebody does a good job I'm very happy to tip a lot. I really feel lucky to be in the position were in, not having to grind out s 9-5 and I know if I was serving pasta or doing a very mundane job at 30 (assuming I've done the same or similar jobs for 12 years) I would really struggle to be so helpful and smiley etc. I know some people just enjoy the security etc and that's perfectly fine but if somebody is extra polite or goes out of their way to help I'd be more than happy to tip them well. For example if dinner was £14 and they did a really good job I'd almost always give £20. If somebody was really very rude for no reason I would give £1 and wouldn't feel bad about it.

Tipping in poker is strange. I don't really play live cash much anymore. In live tournaments I never leave any tip. They always take it high and take additional fees for the dealers, tipping would seem strange for me, especially as you can't give it directly to your favourite dealer etc.

What about you?

Been busy week, have been waking up at 7am every day, doing 5+ hours of strategy content and asleep by 11pm every night. Lots of things going on, lots of things I've been studying. Been very fun.

Had an enjoyable session today, few deep runs in big tourneys and then won the $500 6max on Party for $16,000.

Malta tommorrow. REALLY looking forward to this. lets go!

hope to see some of you guys out there, stop me and say hi if you're around.

Anyway. I was playing on friday with your old pal from Gibraltar days - Callum. At one point he asked if I knew Patrick Leonard - for some reason I felt under a bit of pressure to pretend I was operating at the pinnacle of the game so I said 'yeah, we're pretty good friends'. I'm 54 1/4.

Very eventful first day in Malta!

I got here at around 6, rushed back to the hotel, checked in and had to do around 4-5 hours of meetings/coachings.

Finished and strolled to casino (20 meters away) sat in 5/10 PLO with 3 fish and 1 reg. Was doing pretty well, playing good, I actually saved some hands to write about, but anyway, fish who likes to pot bb pots, I call as do the rest. I have a3k9 one shot. Flop jt5ccc (I have a3cc) checks through, turn brick I lot, potter says "I'm all in" I say "call" he lifts his cards up and I show the nuts. He says "you win" and mucks. Dealer asks him to put his stack in and he refuses saying that all in doesn't count and he only needs to pot it. I call floor, it's obviously ridiculous. Lots of arguing and he literally throws his chips at me, knocking my stsck into the skandi reg stack. Second floor comes over and says I have to give him the chips back from my stsck (he claimed €50) and the guy didn't have to go all in and pay me. The Russian (villain) started saying I was desperate for this money to buy more cocaine to take in the toilet and kept saying that. Pretty funny to people who know me, I've never taken any kind of drug.. Anyway, the floor says I'm not worthy of the rest of the pot and he goes and degens away on blackjack. Obviously tilting, by j handled it decently well.

Anybody here for the week watch out for this scumbaggary and favoritism.
