Are you glad that your poker skills are better than your quoting skills on here?

Cheesy

Oh....am I doing it wrong? I'm just a massive computer fish.

who would you fancy in a fight between Keys and Gorr? what about Keith and Mitch?

do you think playing live poker tournaments is a sustainable living? after poker expenses what do you think your EV is?

Keys vs Kieth and Mitch vs Gorr would be a fairer match up.

I really don't know, so many people ask me this question and I can say is thats all I do for now, its going really well and I really enjoy it....I don't know what my EV is, I just turn up to each comp and try to play my best. And i always enjoy it too, I grinded online comps for a while but I really didn't enjoy it at all, so I stopped. Don't really see the point in doing something you don't enjoy.

Top 3 FT tips??      Can't give that info away, it will make it easy for all of you.

How do you call down with underpairs?    rarely do this... specific reads I guess.

Biggest improvement in your game?       Concentration and ability to keep my head when things go sour.

mtt vs cash?? How? Why?    mtt, I enjoy them more and you can win big chunks.

Do you have a sister? (im thinking poker genes...)  she's 2 years old...probably already above your level

favourite weather?   hot sunny days obv

Have you tried Cinabon's? (you should)

He's leaving ?  That's like splitting up Bevis and ButtHead

Not played much at same table as you, but when I have you always came across as friendly and relaxed and I can't ever remember seeing you have a row at the table.

Is there anything in live poker that angers you?


How do you cope with bad beats ?

Other than once, many years ago, on a 50/1 cash table, you've avoided being on my table, do you think this has contributed more to your success than it has to my, somewhat more limited achievements?

How much time do you spend studying the game? What form does that study take? Do you and Shola study together and does it help to have a partner who is also good at the game?



I never study any books or on the internet or anything. i learn from studying good players and asking good players about hands. I also just learn from myself, if somethings not going well with my game I try to figure out why and make it better.

Without Shola I wouldn't of had this success. we talk about hands all the time and learn from each other, funnily enough we don't always agree about hands, but thats good beacuse it means we have long discussions about it. But besides that she helps me when i'm playing too, there's time in comps where i lose my way a bit and spew a few chips. I usually take a break, text her or call and she always helps me chill out and get my head back in the game. It happened in Dublin, I felt myself tilting after I played a hand badly so i took 2 minutes to call her and came back feeling back in the zone. She also does all the admin stuff for me. She books hotels, flights, sorts my money out etc. So i'm never having to worry about anything other than just concentrating on the Tournament.

If (big if) you ever were to pull the trigger on a big bluff and the villain is tanking for eternity over whether to call, do you ever think "how am I going to explain this to Shola?"

Mr Deadman, we've played many times at DTD and spoke on occasion but don't think you are actually aware of who I am on blonde. I'm the very good looking 20 something stone guy who often wears black caps at DTD and puts you in all sorts of difficult spots at the table.

If poker was outlawed tomorrow what would you do for a living?

If you had to give a player one single bit of poker advice what would it be?

Yes I know you. :-)
I would have no idea if i'm honest. I guess that is something I should think about though.
Enjoy the game....you will play better if your enjoying it.

What is the most effective way for yourself, personally, to study the game?

Wp on recent wins btw, all thoroughly deserved. There are two key pieces of advice that you have given me that I expect will stick with me for a long time, even if it wasn't intended as advice.

By talking to other good players.
No idea what I said but you are very welcome :-)
