I will have a heads up hud and study materials for game type.
My general advice would be to not move to hu hypers on stars, if that decision is already made then gl... get in touch with the best atm

Re: Harthor aMa

In URagnatha's shoes, would you rather start learning (from scratch) and grinding HU hypers at the site(s) of your choice, or variable prize pool SNGs (i.e. spins or similar) at the site(s) of your choice?

Edit: I've just realised that URagnatha is lucky enough to live in the UK and so have access to Virgingames and Sky Poker (but no access to Winamax). I'm also interested in the same question from the perspective of someone who has access to the mainstream non-US sites (Stars, 888, Party, iPoker, Microgaming, Unibеt) but no access to Virgin, Sky, Winamax nor to the segregated national sites like .it or .es.

So should everyone who lacks the stamina for MTTs just quit professional poker now?

Which of the fast poker formats would you prefer?

Re: Harthor aMa

He was a reg getting constant reg action is what I meant, that's why the # of games per hour was so high.

Nobody ever got near that # of players per hour at those stakes without a ton of reg opponents (outside of a reg war where sometimes you can call a guy a spot, even if they are a pro).

Terribly bad, sometimes I was in a riv spot not knowing how i got there, luckily I could realize by stacksizes most of the times, but sometimes the potsize was the same in 2 diff lines and was terrible, also when I didn't smoke I could exploit timing much more. Hopefully I smoke less often. Yes I remember we played u wanted to 8 table iirc

Alright

"then had maybe 1 or 2 years really easy getting lots of fish"

I think I misinterpreted this/overestimated what % of the action "lots" is

Hey man glad to see your doing an ama. Always enjoyed our reg battles. It was back in the day where every hand was dynamic/soul ready based haha.

1. Were you naturally better at poker or chess in your opinion.
2. Best city to party in for 2 weeks?
3. What job do u see yourself having in 5 years/10 years/20 years?

no wait let me hide under the bed!

1. I don't know, for both I had a lot of support from my dad, (he used to play chess and plays poker too), and for chess from my mum too, she played chess too, not suppor from her for poker tho (had to move out). I'd say it's really close.
2. I never been a party guy and also haven't been to lot's of good cities for partying. That said I can tell I had the best time partying in Punta del Este Uruguay. It's a city in wich live around 10k people during the year and around 450k people in the summer (end of december, january and beginning of february). Lot's of rich people from Brazil and Argentina go there, and you have parties everyday.
3. In 5 years I'd like to have a hostel in the mountain and keep playing poker (yes I think earlier in this ama I said I didn't wanna play anymore, but haven't found anything else really that fits me, eventho was off poker for 2 years aprox)
In 10/20 years not sure, I sometimes think I could become a politician If I wanted to, I'm pretty famous in my city, used to be in the journal really often for chess competitions all my childhood, I think it's good publicity. I'm not interested but if I see there's no better persons for the job I'd probably get interested.
Cheers

Since you've said you want to vary on playing poker in the short term at least. What games do you intend to play - hypers, spins, something new?

Re: Harthor aMa

do you regret not playing more when poker was super juicy?
do you regret quitting/not fighting for the 1k spot when it was still worth hundreds of thousands?

lots of yoga and meditation, sounds like you might be no longer interested in chasing the horizon, believing that 'x' amount of money is what will bring you peace of mind and happiness, but regardless, being super successful at such a dream job like poker, it feels like you could easily make few mil more if you would sacrifice travelling and partying for few more years. so my last question, is there anything you would like to say to younger harthor who just made it to 1ks in hu hypers?
