All-time husngs stats (Pokerstars)

Most profitable opponent:


What is your daily routine?

Really disciplined in the week. Poker 6 hours, gym for around 2 hours and then poker for like another 6 hours and then bed. Very exciting.

Tell me your hobbies?

Partying over the weekend with friends and going to the cinema.

Which stake are you grinding and how it is going this year? Do you have set any goals?

My main stake is 500's. Only really targets are to hit 1.25 mil VPPs on stars and keep an ev roi of 4 average for the year. This year has been great so far ev roi is just under 5  so if i can keep anywhere near that it will be a huge success.

Biggest fail from your life?

I quit university without telling my parents to play poker. Waited till my bday to tell them, hoping they'd be more understanding. They weren't! Ran like 100k under ev in some of the last months on full tilt so decided to go back and finish my economics degree.

Which other form of poker you like besides husngs and why?

I like HU omaha cash. I'm not very good at it but the stakes I play (600nl) still seems preety soft even vs the regulars.

What are your strengths and weaknesses?

My biggest strength is probably hand reading and understanding how the dynamic affects peoples decision making. Weakness is certainly maths/GTO

How are you handling money? Do you spend a lot?

Saving for a house in London at the moment. I probably spend an average amount mainly on just socialising. Luckily I don't gamble on table games or sports betting which I imagine is a common leak among too many poker players.

Love that article.This is

Love that article.This is me.....

Many poker pros have essentially sought the industry as refuge from the harrowing, unforgiving, and somewhat disgusting work culture in corporate America, and abroad too, and are more or less demanding to take control of their life and live by their own terms.
