Today, at the end of this WSOP, Sam is able to go in the Well from Vegas. I've been badgering him for a while Smiley



One of the most original characters in UK Poker, a mixture of the irreverent and the profound as evidenced on his twitter feed @SquidPoker

Sam is a very successful MTT player both live and Online, and a star of the recent Sky Sports Cash game on our TV screens

Live Results include GUKPT Grand Final winner in 2012 and three other GUKPT Final tables. Sam has 8 WSOP cashes, including four this year

Online, top 10 UK ranked on P5s with lifetime cashes of over $2m http://www.pocketfives.com/profiles/thesquid/

Fire questions at him, and allowing for time differences I reckon this could be one of the most stimulating wells we've had on here

Hey all,

Tighty asked me to do this a coupla times. I'm currently stuck in Vegas without a passport and been reflecting on poker a lot so seems like as good a time as any. Ask me anything you like about poker or life and I'll do my best to answer.

Favourite UK live poker stop? (not just for venue but also for city/clubs/bars/restaurants etc)

Whats the most common mistakes you see from MTT'ers?

Do you favour less tables and more reads or as many tables as you can click on?

Do you see yourself still grinding MTTs regularly in the next 2-5 years?

Best player you know that nobody has heard of?

Going back to the start, I believe you did a Masters and then are quoted as saying you needed "intellectual stimulation"

Why, at that point, poker?

Does it still give you that challenge of 3-4 years ago?

If you'd gone down a different route after academics, what would your career be?

What's the weirdest situation you've ever found yourself in?
The most balla thing you've ever done / bought?
Do you prefer online or live poker?
You're entering a team competition, you have to pick 3 other English players, who do you pick and why?
Is it true that your 3 betting range is the lightest element on the periodic table?

If you had to be the back-end of a pantomime horse, which poker player would you most like to be the front-end?

Yeah I get asked this a lot and I'm not really sure.

It defo originates from my Party screen-name. When I started playing semi-seriously at The Internationl we used to jokingly call each other by screen names my only one was sammy_squid so people kept calling me that. When I set up my Stars account in 2009 I just kept the name.

So why Squid originally? Since I've learnt that there's a character in the cartoon Rugrats called Sam Squid or something similar and also in Red Dwarf but I'm not a fan of either. So who know?

How the hell do you get stuck anywhere without a passport? Did a hooker nick it as collateral?
