As the king of fantasy betting can you get stars to run some sort of fantasy WSOP league thing? FTP used to have one but I'm sure it can be improved on. I need something I can enter in the summer, beat my friends at and then berate them.

I thought it was a hold'em match, and not omaha?If it's hold'em, AA would be beaten by that hand

I suppose that is possible. I have NO idea if there is a simulation site that runs it the other way.

You are not denying fact that to become a PRO, to live and having fun from poker earning is to win big tournaments, but the fact that to build a bankroll is the best way to grind I didnt know it. Thx.

I don't feel that normal cash games gives me any, since i go up and down and up, basicly stays in same cash level, i think any way that you go + will be the right way, zoom cash or tournament if u get close or to the final tables, zoom is now my way.

Many years ago you played $500/1000 limit holdem heads up matches on FCP, you played some epic matches with a player calling themselves 'dreamclown' I remember you would post on this forum talking about the player actually being a small group of young players so my question is did any of them go on to be mainstream/known players or did they burn out/ go busto? Was it Tom Dwan, Phil Galfond and Andrew Robl? cheersJust listened to your videoblogs on youtube, I'm with you about twoplustwo so i'm posting here from now on. I got my first ever 20 infraction points a few months ago from 'professionalpoker' on twoplustwo for quoting some dudes spam in the post below his. Getting infraction points after posting there for years infraction free pff...I'm a 30 year old man for christ sake as you can tell by my post count here i dont like cluttering up threads with un-necessary spam. I will never post again on twoplustwo :club:

When was the last time you made a deal near the end of a big tourney? And do you ever sell any of your action, or simply bankroll yourself for every big event? Thanks!

Daniel I really respect your opinion so I am curious how you would answer this question. I have a guy that wants to bet me on cashing in the WSOP $1k event. Let's say 3300 entries and 330 get paid. What would you say are the odds for a average player and above avg player cashing? He was offering 3.5-1 and I told him 10-1 would be more in the range and I felt I was still taking the worst of it. Thanks

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

Did you choose to follow a vegan diet for health reasons or because you view the raising/butchering of animals as a food source cruel? Do you avoid using all animal based products besides foodstuffs, i.e., leather shoes, wool clothing?I've seen you address the topic of raise size when opening but I would like you be a little more specific please. When you say open for 2.5-2.75 times the big blind what does this actually amount to? For simplicity of numbers, let's say the blinds are 50/100 and you are going to raise 2.5x.Folds to you and you open. You are going to make a standard 2.5x raise.Is your bet going be to 250 or is the raise 250 so the actual opening bet is $350?Now let's assume there are two limpers in before you so there is already $350 in the pot before it gets to you. You still want to raise. How much is your bet?Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!

Antonius played on FCP back in the day but he was not DreamClown
