How old are you?
How and when did you get started in poker?
Why do you appear to not like tournaments?
Do you play for a living? If so, does the currect legislative position in the US make you concerned for your future? If not, same question I guess, seeing as it appears you make a fair income from poker as things stand.
Do you think in total more, fewer, or roughly the same amount of people will be playing online poker two years from now?
If you could have three wishes unconditionally granted, what would they be? (no cheap 'infinite wishes' cop-outs!)
If you had to describe Nick in one word, what would that word be?
I played poker for the 1st time about 3 years ago, but I never really got good until about 18 months ago, when i started reading poker forums
. I used to play a home game once or twice a week at uni, and although I was clearly the best player there, we were playing for tiny money, and I only used to win, not cos i was good, but cos every1 else was so bad!
I don't like donkaments for many reasons. Firstly, there is juwst less skill involved. In cash games, effective stacks are just about always 100BBs+. In tournies, people have Ms on 10 and below just about always, so it means theres less postflop play, which is waht i find fun. I also hate the fact that you can play for an hour or 2, lose a coinflip and then walk away with nothing.
I play for a living at the moment, and have done since the end of summer. However, I'm going travelling in 6 weeks and when i get back, I'll be getting a job in teh city (fingers crossed), so as a result, the legislations won't affect my income. However, theres no doubt about it, the gam,es have got a lot tougher since the legislation, especailly at 400NL+. having said that, there are still enough bad TAGs and fish about, that make online poker still very profitable, and If I wanted to, I'm sure I could earn my living through onine poker for a few years to come.
I think it obviously all depends on the legislation, as at the moment, they are trying to overturn the decision in the USA, but I think that there will probably be more (if they dont shut down the USA completely). Party poker
lost 80% of their player base when they shut off americans, however, they are not opperating at only 80% of the pre-legislation levels. this shows that tjhere are clearly non-americans out there that want to play poker, its just up to poker sites
to find these people.
1) To have enough money to be confortable for the rest of my life. 2) to find a girl who i love and loves me back and eventually marry her. 3) to be able to be free to do what i want when i want
I might get banned for this, but w/e. 1 word to describe nick: "gay". (he's not actually gay, but he owns and uses a pair of hair straightners!)
