Don't know too much about him, and sounds like a classy guy, but personally I don't like soft playing. I'd be disappointed if I finally got to play a pro and he was taking it easy on me. Now if he thought he may have been beat and was playing pot control that's one thing, but to simply only call just to save the other guy money is wrong imo. How would you feel if you got a chance to play Jordan 1-on-1 and he just sort of faked playing and let you score on him?
It is great that he's friendly, and from what I have seen about him that's true, but soft playing is not a plus imo. I'd personally be offended if he did that to me.
