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!

In a hospital?
Miss you at dtd torns, was good having battles on those occasions. You always seemed to 'sweat' a bit when I reached for my chips or was this part of your speech play? sean r

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


Wrong choice of words... was referring to you verbally trying to persuade me not to bet rather than perspiring! Still remember that a3 34 (?) hand on the ft where i would have been ahead 99% of the time. Anyway good to see you hitting some solid results much deserved. Possibly a candidate for 2nd nicest player in poker?

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?

Oh ofcourse my wins have been down to loads of run-good. But having said that I keep putting myself in the spots to win. For a while I was making FT's but not running good on them, in February I made back to back FT's in DTD 770 and GUKPT walsall. Came 8th and 9th for not very much money. The 770 I lost chiplead pot AA v KK in pre to bust. TL900 can confirm vfhqbwrfhbwerbf!!!!!!!
But I don't know really, obviously I am running good but it can't be pure run good that I keep going deep, the run-good comes when u win the crucial flip with 13 left or something like I did in Dublin, 1010 vs KQs.
I guess we'll see if i'm still doing well this time next year, I feel like there's more to come but obviously confidence is sky high at the moment.

hmmm don't remember that, must of been a long time ago though, I cant remember the last time I spoke during a hand, unless its on the river and i'm closing the action. In that case I sometime do to try and get a read, actually I do this a lot.

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?

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.

(1) I think it would be a really interesting hand to post, put it this way, usually when I bust a tournament I am not that interested in talking about hands other people played (as people I know can attest), whereas with that one I could have talked about it for longer than we did

(2) It has always been fascinating to me the way that these different perspectives exist because of the different ways people have come into poker.

I find your reference to enjoyment regarding online poker really interesting, while obviously on some level everybody that plays the game for a living started out because they enjoyed the game and its intricacies, I am not sure the extent to which anybody 'enjoys' the day in and day out of grinding online tournaments.

Clearly I can only speak for myself, I enjoy the freedom poker has given me in life, I obviously still enjoy the feeling of getting deep in a tournament but the everyday experience of playing, people don't call it grinding for no reason.

Anyway obviously you have had alot of success doing what you are doing so why change it

(3) I am definitely guilty of this, and I think it just stems from being used to playing lots of tables and making lots of decisions in quick succession, and basically having to re-train your brain for live poker where so much of the time you are not personally involved in hands.

I realise that this is does not really contain questions but just wanted to respond

Nice to see you've adopted Simon's quoting style.

Refreshing to hear a young pro talk about learning and improving in a natural way by just watching people and talking to people about hands, kinda old school approach. Thread has potential.

However, people are losing the plot with quoting which is quite tilting.

Hello Simon,

Its Mitch here, sometimes I hide behind my screen name of 'Mitch' to stay anonymous, but I feel its time to come out of the shadows.

Enjoying reading your answers so far, my questions are as follows.

1) Can I arrange the stag do? (Don't tell Shola obv)

2) In any of the comps you have done well in lately, how many times do you think you have been all in for your tournament life with a total bluff. More of a post flop bluff where u have jammed turn with no hand because of a read or whatever, not 4betting all In pre with A4s etc.

3) Who have you got the most reliable tell on in poker?

4) Why do you feel you haven't really put much time into bigger live cash when you were grinding the lower limits for so long?

5) Can you come back for football more often, weve been losing.
