"I raise, therefore I am."
Current Ranking: 4th
Poker accomplishments/wins: Winning the WSO72o, managing to grab the Numero Uno spot for the best part of a week, 5th out of 690 runners in Metro satellite for the Big One...oh, and introducing the Dave Bland patented 'String Fold' (TM)
Plays online at: Ladbrokes and PokerStars
Online Aliases: DevilWish
Played for how long?: Around a year online, 8 months or so live.
Playing style: Some kind of Harrington/Hansen hybrid - so let's call it Harrinsen.
Most Likely To: Stay very still
Least Likely to: Play 7-2 suited again....the heckling I took! Especially when I hit the flush! [....quite right too - shocking behaviour....]
Worst 'bad beat' suffered: I can honestly say that I don't mind bad beats. If I stick my chips in the middle at the right time and the cards don't work with me, in the words of Scotty Nguyen 'That's poker baby'. I prefer to remember the bad plays and then work them out of the system.
Worst 'bad beat' inflicted: Taking a 3 6 offsuit and aiming them right into pocket rockets. Chips go in, flop comes 4-5-Q. Turn brings a 7. The rest was very embarassing.
When not playing poker I'm: Considerably richer.
Favourite poker pro: Howard Lederer. I like to think I can play with differing styles, and so I have a real appreciation for all styles of play. Negreanu, Laak and Ivey get qudos for being just fun fun fun, Harrington and Cloutier for being just godly.
Favourite/Lucky Openers: Pocket Kings. That or 3 6o
Favourite quote/saying: "You call, it's gonna be all over baby". Scotty Nguyen. I should dislike him for the bling, but the man's a legend.
Favourite film: 'Amelie' and 'Lost in Translation' are up there, as is 'Bladerunner'.
Favourite biscuit: Well I have taken a lot of biscuits recently.....
