Age 17 for both. I just seem to have been really lucky with that hand when I'm running bluffs with it I seem to flop two pair or better A LOT!

Average player by definition would be 9-1. Above average player probably not any better than 4.5-1.

Do you back anyone? Do you think there is decent money to be made from backing players? Do you ever buy pieces of players?Estimate your ROI in EPT Monte Carlo €25k/€100kEstimate your ROI in WSOP MEIf
It seem that most of the younger player don't tip after tourny wins. Even some.of the biggest buy-ins they get huge scores and no tip.This never happened a few years ago. R the players now expecting to treated like rock stars? Are they unhappy with staff? Or just really cheep. Buy the way I don't deal or work on the floor.. thanks
Having talked to two different dealers (sick sample, I know), both have said that tips for tournaments aren't really a big deal since so much is getting taken out and there's not always that much transparency. I've still tipped a small amount when I've made scores, but I don't think it's nearly as strongly encouraged as before.
now they are flattening out the pay scale in hope of making the nits feel better about min cashing.
Daniel,What is "The Chainsaw Effect"?
Have you ever been interested in developing strategies to beat various financial markets? Why do you like Anna Faris so much?
Snake Plissken? I thought you were dead.
Oh, not dead. Alive as a man can be. Exhausted and physically raped by alcohol and terrible finance since black friday. But I'm alive, I'm alive.
What is your view of Erik Seidel as a person ?On your FTP scumbag rants you never mention Ivey, is that because he is your friend or you seriously think he is totally clean ? Most of the poker world would disagree with that.
Since you said nothing is off limits, who was the girl in the threesome?
Daniel, do you have ant cool stories or memories of playing poker with Stu Unger? Did you know him very well???
Daniel -re: golf betsI was once told a story from someone that lived with Nick Rainey that went like this...Nick camped out at the golf course the night before a match w/ you & Christian so he could bribe a groundskeeper to move the tees back on a certain hole where you had to clear a water hazard; moving the tee box to where it would be very difficult for you to clear the hazard but Nick/Patrik easily could.What do you think the odds are this actually happened/can you ever think of a specific hole where it did?
Daniel, You can't act incredulous about those who are unhappy with Ivey. He was intimately accociated with FullTilt. I don't think he knew what was going on, but for you to say that the Ivey hate "boggles your mind" rings hollow to me. Ivey is linked to FTP in the same way that Annie and Phil H. are linked to UB. You can't get around that. Bill G.
I played with him at Bellagio two weeks before he died for the first, and only time. He looked bad, very thin, frail, but seemed to be interested in fixing his life. A priest actually came in to see him that day. He played fast and aggressive and went broke several times punting it away, but I had a blast playing with him, although I had the worst seat in the house, he was seated to my direct left.
After the main event and 50K chamionship; which poker title would you like most to have under your belt? If and when online gambling is legalised in America, how do you anticipate the landscape is going to change (for better or worse, and pls don't say its going to grow ten fold because thats obvious). Are you beginning to prepare yourself for online legalisation? I know you're not a lawyer but regarding FTP; by the time everything is over like say 5 years from now what are people going to be saying/doing then, as opposed to the very justified witch hunt the poker community is currently pursuing? If FTP does pay back its players do you think Lederer and company will come out of hiding if they're not in jail?
the first hand of the 1mil wsop. everyone goes all in. you're in the bb w/ AA. Do you call?! Math please as well.
Do you think a wsop event that played PLO nhle and nl 2-7 would be a good event?If you think it would be a bad event, how come?
Thanks for the info on tipping. I thought most of the juice went to the house?
AA is obviously a great starting hand against any other random hand ... with no less than 77% to win. But as you increase the number of opponents in the hand it can lose it's value pretty quick. Even against 2 other hands it will drop down to close to 60%. Against 8 other random hands it went down below 40% and even close to 30% in one case that I entered. Most top tournament pros will tell you that you will need to win more than a few flips to win a tournament ... are you ready to 'flip' on the first hand? There are way too many variables to consider from player to player (and tournament to tournament) for any one answer here. Of course a win here lets you sleep off the next 5 levels if you want to or you can try to be the bully and run away with a stack. How many Day 1 chip leaders ever win a tournament ... not many ... but if you gave a poker player an opportunity to start with 8x chips more than the field or walk away rather than spend 2 or 3 days only to miss the money (which could still happen) there are probably quite a few who would take that 'risk' and just go play cash if they lose. If this is a 1mill buy-in event, then one would think that the field is pretty small and the advantage of this many chips goes way up. If this were the main event, then the 'value' of those 8x chips goes down since the number of opponents left is still huge. Good Luck!!
