 Age: 24

Country: Czech Republic

Hobbies: soccer, squash, travelling

Charles Hawk: How old were you when you started playing poker?

Jiri 'dusan32' Dusek: I started playing poker when I was 18 but started taking it more seriously about 3years ago. After I finnished high school I worked for a few months, but decided to play poker proffesionally. I've always played only HU hypers. I'm a member of 60s division and hope that I will make it to the 100s division till the end of this year.

Last year I made Supernova for the second time.


Charles Hawk: What have you started to do differently? What changed?

Jiri 'dusan32' Dusek: I was a typical fish, playing all kinds of formats and didn't know what is bankroll management but one day I managed to get some coaching and recommendations in free videos on I really enjoyed mersenneary's videos and, of course, I bought chaders's pack. After that, I was crushing 15s but I have to say that I was running extremely hot for the first year.

Interview with majcy (part 1) 

Interview with majcy


Charles Hawk: How long have you played poker? Tell me how you started?

majcy: I've been playing poker for maybe 5-6 years now, last 3 professionally. I figured through uni that I don't want to follow the career path my course was preparing me to and I didn't have any other ideas what to do with my life, so poker that used to be a hobby, grew into a job and eventually I quit uni. That's when I met the 1rake1, mav and adamc1988. I think that story got mentioned here and there. Thanks to that lucky event I ended up in perfect enviroment to keep improving and I made it way past just comfy life, pretty much living the dream. I was always inspired by other poker players blogs - how they can live in exotic places, travel the world, and now I'm lucky enough to also live that lifestyle.
