Quite hooked on these streams from Hustler now. Watched yesterday's this evening. Great viewing and well played Ali.

Loved watching Antonius too, super cool guy, no doubt. Must've been fun to play on that table if you have the cojones for it



Watched much of the last one too, Ali G played so well after a lot of previous run bad.  Good of Garrett to f up his payday and give everyone else a chance.  

On to the important question, has Antonius aged at all?  


They're quite good for watching if you are playing online. I binked 3rd in an 8 game tourn yesterday for $17.00 (hourly around $3.20) and change while Alex was relieving Persson of rather larger amounts over about the same time period.

Antonius looks great and barely changed as you say, and in this environment came across as a really engaging character I thought


Amazing stuff at your age Glenn, well done.

Go on...tell us about the Kings

Did it for him besmirching the name of Phil Hellmuth Jr, presumably?

Well done.

Thanks all. I'm back home in England after quite the trip. Run good came at the right time!

Kings hand was wild. My biggest ever winning pot.

I was making an effort to give more action as I felt Eric needed to be convinced I was good for the game (he blocks people if they have <35% vpip for eg Wesley, he tweeted that yesterday), and it was his $800 straddle and I was on the button.

I think raising blind in this spot is a fine play and good for optics + the show, so I annouce blind raise to $2k. Folds to him and he makes it $12k. I let my neighbour sweat my hand as we squeeze two beautiful kings.

I'm playing a stack of $94k (I think it was down as 84 on the system which was off by 10), it doesn't take a former professional poker player turned angel investor to work out how to get the money in here. Small 4bet that he has to call - $28k. He does call.

three diamonds or some similar Ace high wheel rainbow flop.

He instantly puts me allin for $65k 😂😂😂

I was always calling but just took some time as a) biggest pot ever, b) you can get info from his speech play c) huge swing emotionally for the trip which is in its final 30 minutes or so - either down heaps or up small.

He uses a phrase which I'd seen him use to Garrett when he had the nuts. "Better to live like a man than die on your knees". This worried me a little. But I decided to live like a man I guess!

Gave him credit for at least having a draw / pair but no - , happy days!

Hi Alex, very well done - I can assure you, you’ll get an invite back (should you want it!) - hard to forget those hands (from his perspective ☺️). The whole ‘angel investor’ thing too, lol.

NB - I saw you once in the Empire, approached to say hi, you were very courteous - could tell you were a good guy who wasn’t letting success swamp ego (stay true to that whatever happens). 🙂

Hi and thanks for the kind words!

People think that angel investor is made up but it's genuinely not. Started a fund 5 years ago with a couple of non-poker people and we invest in startups. Sure I play a lot of poker still but it's not my main source of income. Especially since covid

HNY Blonde!

Shall I restart the blog? Had a lot on my mind lately and no good place to put it, and also some fun tournament stops coming up so thinking about bringing it back, warts n all!

What kind of content would you guys like to read?

Please restart.

Content? I love the away from the table, everyday life stuff.
I enjoy the poker if it includes frame of mind and thought process.

HNY to you and yours.

How does one attach a photo these days? Assume it’ll be a large file size

Would love to see a blog reboot Alex.

Your Angel investment fund would make an extremely interesting read - to whatever extent you are able to share - in addition to your poker exploits

I only know you through Blonde, but I always enjoyed being a fly on your wall in the past blog posts

Yep, some decent bloggage required. Currently having to suffer with some offerings that end in Aftermath. Cheesy
