What did you do before poker? Do you think you will still be playing poker in 10 yrs?

Lets see if anyone can guess my job before poker? No one post if you already know though!

I don't have a 10 year plan, here and now things are great. for 10 years time, Que Sera, Sera.

What's been your best moment in poker thus far?
What's been your worst moment in poker so far ?
Short & long term aspirations in poker ?


1) Winning in Blackpool, had been knocking on the door for GUKPT's all year, felt sooo good to get the win under my belt.
2) Busting my first ever WSOP main with around 200 left
3) Just keep playing well and see what happens

Hi Simon,

To put a face to screenname, we met in Dublin (the Scottish guy you bust from 1a), hopefully that clarifies:

I don't know if you are comfortable sharing your thoughts about specific hands in a public forum, but if you are you should discuss the 4 bet pot you played against Sean from Ireland on Day 1a of the WPT, because that is definitely one of the more interesting spots I have witnessed/discussed recently.

Going back to not grinding online tournaments, regardless of your previous lack of enjoyment, do you not feel that you might be sacrificing a serious source of potential earnings and crucially a way to significantly reduce variance, especially because of the resources you have in terms of friends of yours who are good online regulars?

More general question: As someone whose main game is live tournaments, what do you think some of the biggest mistakes people who play primarily online make when they play live?

not a hospital.
I didn't realise I did so I guess i was generally sweating. I was probably just hoping you didn't bet too much!

Yes I remember, we shared a beer and pizzza after too. Well Bobbafett ate most of it tbf ;-)

1) This hand your talking about is probably the most complicated hand I played of the whole tourney. So many different thoughts/levels throughout the hand it would take me forever to discuss it on here. Maybe one for the PHA?

2) Maybe, yes. But I really don't enjoy sitting on the computer grinding, also I feel my edge live is being able to see me opponent and I rely so much on my live reads I don't even know if I'd do any good online. I was probably break even when online when I was playing before. I still play the odd sunday schedule if i'm home though.

3) Concentration. I see so many really good online players who just get bored playing live, they have their heads in their Ipads all day then it comes to a spot where they have no info on villain because they haven't been paying any attention. I don't even listen to Music at the table because I don't want to miss that 1 bit of information that may be crucial to me making a big call/fold.

Hi Simon, thanks for doing this. Very interesting read.

My question:

Do you think our recent run of success is a true reflection of your ability or do you think you've run incredibly well?
