"You can’t just be “addicted” to poker if you’re winning… can you?"
If you don’t understand a market, you cannot sell to them, and if the poker industry cannot sell to micro/new/recreational players, then the long term future of UK poker is as bleak as a funeral on a Scottish beach.
"A little bit more information is always better than a little bit less information."
"Positive thinking does not supersede hard work and study."
"I'm financially bankrolled for the stakes and formats I'm playing, I'm just not sure I'm properly emotionally bankrolled."
"I have dealt tables, usually finals, where everybody knows what they're doing, and nobody's trying to look 'cool', they just state their action, and the game moves quickly."
"Understanding ICM is advanced strategy, and I don't want to make beginner players sweat about yet another load of mathematical bullshit that makes poker boring; but sometimes a principle is important, and you only need the principle here."
"I know there’s been a lot of ranting about tanking recently, and everyone’s all about the shot-clock. I’m very much on that band wagon, because live poker is slow, too damn slow, and in danger of being really boring, not just to recreational players, but to half-competent online grinders playing even low numbers of multiple tables."
