Haha yeah, I played Milisits a bunch of years ago. He beat me, iirc. And then I saw him at the WSOP maybe two years ago, we chatted a bit.
Edit: After some research I see that we played at the scholastic nationals way back in 2003. He did, in fact, beat me. He was always better than I, although I wouldn't really call him a "top player". Top 30ish in the US for his age, probably, but the gap was pretty large between guys like us and the actual elite. I looked up his poker screen name, and learned that we also played a bunch of NL at Bodog way back in the day. I remember an epic 10/20nl 3 handed session with him and a pro in probably like 2006 when I was playing with like a 4bi roll.
