Jack has kindly agreed to go in the Well on blonde (thanks to Mr GreekStein for the introduction) and answer questions, on whatever subject you like. We might even get round to his successful strategies online!

So, fire away...

Having won $1.37m, $1000 probably is pocket change to you. Can I please have $1000?

Shipping two majors in one night - did you have to pinch yourself to make sure you weren't dreaming?

And standard question - Nando's food order?

Some may not know this, but some random clown on 2+2 started a rumour that Jacks FTP account belonged to an underage american kid following his FTOPS win, so my questions are:

Did Full Tilt do much investigation into who you were following this? Did they freeze the money at all?
Did you ever find out who the idiot was who posted the rumour and if they were indeed trying to jump a pay grade?
How worrying was it at the time?

Also lend us a grand after CF.

Also, favourite wrestler?

How did you begin playing poker? And how did it lead to you playing the larger buyin tournys?

Ever done a fair wedge playing cash whilst drunk?

Ever dressed up as a blues brother?

What you wanna be doing in 5 and 10 years time? what do you think you will be doing?

Does it sadden you that amongst all your achievements, people have forgotten the epic 0.5bb comeback on the final table of the Nutz £5 festival rebuy?

Do you think you'll ever loose a dinner/bar flip?

Is a 3021% ROI in online events +$2000 sustainable?

Whats the best piece of advice you'd give someone who wants to play poker for a living?

What price would you give me on Tom Mac winning the main next year?

sick year though mate, just shows where relentless hard work will get you, really really well deserved and Im ridic proud of you Smiley

Love lil Dave x
