Why didn't you move up? You were obviously crushing the game.

I never had doubt, there is no one better than me in the world right now at 1c/2c 6-max besides maybe durrrr, wcgrider, phil ivey, PA, etc. and that's all the confirmation i needed.

What player do you respect the most and what set of skills would you say is the most important ones for a proffessional poker player?

No one, and friendliness.

I don't really play these hands. It's often just a fold for me, I find that they clutter my ability to play 1c/2c 6-max and I will lose more in the long run playing them, then not.

If not, is it more profitable to open shove with any one of these hands or to just make big solid bets on every street to slowly build the pot?

I just fold them...

This, is a far more powerful hand then AA or KK. I normally do a "fake fold" when I have JJ, just to confuse my other online 1c/2c players. But then I actually raise it! They are clueless.
more coming.

1. how do you table select?
Seeing I only play 4-tables MAX, table selection is key. I look for lots of small stacks with <$0.40, as that way they will fear my big $1.00 stack. Psychology is essentially the most important tool in 1c/2c 6-max imho.

2. have you bought anything nice in the FPP-store?
I cannot earn FPPs from 1c/2c 6-max apparently. BUT that is why I choose to play it, as they blind my view on money and would prevent me from have making so much over the past 4 years.

3. whats the biggest leak among the regulars?
Raising. They raise too much. I raise very little preflop, and that's how the game should be played. I like to open limp 60% of my playable hands, the rest I fold. Not JJ though, that's a raising hand.

4. have you tried any PLO?
That's the devils game.

5. whats the biggest winning/losing session?
Please refer to garph.

I know that I'm the best in the world at 1c/2c 6-max, and am happy to put in 12 hours a day playing the game for 4 years, so there was no need.
The well is still open for a little longer my protégées.

Re: I finally made $23.47 grinding online poker. The Well.

why not move up? If you were playing 2c/4c you could have like $30ish by now.


Are you willing to coach? I can pay you 5 cents per lesson.

4) Biggest puchase with winnings?

Just bought a new BIC 2-color pen. I'm not really rolled yet to start getting 4-color pens but that's definitely something I'm going to look into soon.

Re: I finally made $23.47 grinding online poker. The Well.

1. how much do you take position into consideration when choosing what hands to play?
2. if you are at a table filled with good regs, do you leave that table?
3. when you flop a very strong hand (like a set), do you generally play it fast or slow?

I really like using the four color deck and calling suited diamonds. Aside from that, it's really what I believe is right to play because I AM the best 1c/2c 6-max player currently in the world.

2. if you are at a table filled with good regs, do you leave that table?
No, there is no one I fear as I am one of the best in the world besides durrrr, PA, Phil Ivey, wcg rider, etc.

3. when you flop a very strong hand (like a set), do you generally play it fast or slow?
I fold.

Re: I finally made $23.47 grinding online poker. The Well.

Again, thanks a lot for doing this!

1. Top 5 1c/2c pros?
2. Can you talk about the concept of turning a made hand into a bluff? I'm mostly a midstakes player and I'm not sure I understand it well enough to put it into practice.
3. Any durrrr stories?

I am tired now after a long 12 hour session of 1c/2c 6-max (yes i still do play occasionally), and will get to your questions later.
