Exclamation Ben 'MilkyBarKid' Grundy is In The Well

Quote:
A stranger is being shown around a village that he has just become part of. He is shown a well and his guide says "On any day except Saturday, you can shout any question down that well and you'll be told the answer."

The man seems pretty impressed, and so he shouts down: Why not on Saturday? and the voice from in the well shouts back: Because on Saturday, itís your day in the well.
as per this thread high stakes PLO player, Red Pro and huge online winner Ben Grundy has agreed to be In The Well.

I think this is a pretty good opportunity to ask some interesting questions of a world class PLO player. I think it should be used wisely.

I will be back in a minute with some of my own questions.

Good luck in the well.

If you're okay answering these questions... in your opinion:

1) Who are the top 5 6-max PLO players?
2) Top 5 HU PLO players?

Re: Ben 'MilkyBarKid' Grundy is In The Well

Thanks for doing this Ben.

1. How did you go about managing your bankroll while moving up through the ranks in PLO? (Certain number of buy-ins, taking shots, etc)

2. What are some of the bigger leaks you have plugged in your own PLO game?

3. What is the single best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

Thanks in advance

Biggest live game you've played?

What sites, other than full tilt do you play?

How many hands do you play a month?
