Fid got a place in vegas with the intention of taking a shot at playing full time. That's what he said during the WPT championship at least.

Anthony, this summer is yours to enjoy, don't feel pressured to post until after the ME.It's more important that you are focused and rested.I realize posting early doesn't really give THAT much info to the opposition, etc., but sometimeshappy stress causes fatigue.See, I care more about you doing well than us watching your progress.Lol, I will get flamed for that. Who cares!Until then, you don't need to play so much, read Chen's book and Kill Phil (for knowledge about how others might play--btw a 2+2 article did criticize calling with suited connectors aren't all that good, but Sklansky liked the book).Know that in certain situations a common error is not calling with what looks like weak hands. Get the odds down cold on that, it'll make a difference.Raymer prides himself on knowing how to size bets according to situations, make sure you are up on that.Are you emailing DN much? Pester the guy, he's so lazy this summer.

Honestly, I have no clue which events I'm playing in. I do know that it should be strictly NL events (as that's all I know how to play). I'll try to find out before I head down to Vegas. That's pretty interesting how Fiddler is considering going full-time. I guess he must be doing really well. When I met up with him in December I remember him saying that he could barely time off for being there. I wonder if he quit his day job. Does he have a blog by any chance?Yeah, I highly doubt I'll be posting at all as there doesn't seem to be internet at the place I'm staying. I'm sure Matt or someone from FCP will post updates periodically. Daniel seems to be playing in most of the events so I'm not sure if he'll have time to talk to me. Perhaps before the main event.

Ok first of all..it's Fidler...one D :club: Anthony..i did quit my day job...giving Vegas a little trial run. Just moved out here about a week ago or so. As an update..i'm playing mostly 5-10NL games here almost every day...and i'm up almost 7k early.I update my blog on my myspace page occassionally, but not as much as i should. You can find that here

Try and let us know which events you're in before you head down to Vegas.

Whoops...well for all the times people misspell my last name, I'm entitled to to a misspell now and then, lol. That's pretty cool trying poker full time. Maybe I'll see you down there sometime, I'll be playing 1-2 NL though. Wish you the best of luck. Will you be making the trip down there AKoffsuit?

First of all, let me preface this comment by saying I think it's incredibly generous of DN to have this protege promotion.He has better things to do with his time and with the value of what you learn with DN, it's got to be an experience of a lifetime.I hope he continues this protege concept but I really wouldn't be surprised if twice is enough for him.It's maybe too late for you now Anthony, but if you are as good as DN said you are at tournament NLHE play (and I have no reason to doubt his word), then I would have spent the last three months basically learning razz* and the other games with the intention of joining those WSOP events with the goal maximizing the chances of winning multiple bracelets (of course this would be subject to getting the approval beforehand but it doesn't rule out a parlay starting with NLHE events). Sure, no one has the obligation to teach you anything about other games, but heck, if he's in a good mood with a few hours, why not? Also, if DN is a bit too busy, just ask another pro, that would be kinda funny, don't you think? People already know who you are to some extent and it would be a laugh for other pros to take some credit with a bright student.There are plenty of anecdotes where a talented beginner took a bracelet, and these events have somewhat smaller turnouts... I'm not ignoring the fact that they may be packed with great players.After the WSOP, you are on your own, lol. Enjoy the ride!* I used razz as an example because it's a relatively easy game, you have more of a shot at a bracelet by reading the razz section of "Sklansky on Poker" a few days before the tourney than with any other form of poker. In fact, I think I'll give it a try on my first WSOP trip.

Yeah, for now I just want to try to master NL. As that's the most popular and by far easiest to find games for. Plus there's still a lot of room for improvement. I'm sure at some point I'll get bored of NL and at that time I may look into other games. More importantly though, I still need to find a job, lol.Cool, I'll make a note of that. I'll probably be playing most days but in my spare time I'll be playing in 1/2 NL if I'm not broke by then. :club:

Good luck guys!

I'm wearing black PokerStars pants as well. :DBut yeah, I think you'll see all PokerStars players will be dressed like that, except for maybe the pros. Yeah, it's always some pretty girl, not that I'm complaining.
