I was scheduled to play 11 events at this years WSOP
(including the ME and the $10k Heads Up) but last minute there was a tragic event involving my roommates family and I wasn't able to go.
I'll be trying to go out there in 2011 and will most likely be playing the WPT event in Hollywood, FL. on May of 2011.
I'm not sponsored by any sites. Hopefully one day.

Did you have any big "a-ha" moments that you can recall that helped in your climb to high stakes?
Paper or plastic?
Do you speak jive?
Thanks for doing this, mang - much continued success in your future I see.
I generally play around 9 tables at a time with buy-ins ranging from $60-235
mostly 6max SnGs
The biggest "aha" moment for me was when my friend The Lipo Fund told me (after me complaining about always getting it in good and losing) "if you're not getting it in bad, often, then you're not playing right".
I'ma lay it on you straight, cat... nope.

I'm sure I'll have tons of questions being a fellow SNG player, but I'll start with just one: how much time do you spend studying compared to playing?
edit: another question already, lol, who are the other SNG coaches on DC besides yourself?
I probably spend too much time studying, if that's possible. lol. I really do love learning the game and I get more joy out of studying than playing which is rare - I have to force myself to play almost.
I know bones and AMT (two guys I really like) were doing a lot of SnG content but nowadays are spending more of their time making MTT videos or HUSNG vids. There is another guy Skitz0frenik who I believe is still making SnG vids. I honestly don't know much about him, I think he's a lower stakes player than me but I watched half of one of his videos last night (will be finishing it later) and I don't recall disagreeing with anything he did. He seems pretty solid and he did a fine job narrating the video as well. Would definitely recommend him.
I could be wrong but me and Skitz may be the only guys putting out most of the SnG content for some time.
