Re: who actually grinded his way up?

too lazy to scroll up?:

which well-known players have actually grinded up their roll without winning a huge tournament-score,
coming out of a rich family or having made big money with a regular job before playing poker?
fyi: you don't have to press enter to start a new line in the middle of a SINGLE SENTENCE, it will wrap by itself.

Re: who actually grinded his way up?

The smartest poker player I've seen to this date is Peter Eastgate. The guy grinded his way up and won the main event and left the poker scene after playing a few more tournaments here and there. He was wise enough to realize he couldn't survive and have the same success if he had kept playing 10k buy-in tournaments.

There are less fish and suckers in poker today, just like an efficient market, the poker world has adjusted itself over time. People are getting better and the suckers are gone so basically there is no new source of money and in the long run money will just be getting exchanged among the same players.

Pretty pathetic that Annette isn't mentioned in over 100 posts. Probably best example.
