Exactly, the guy is playing 200/400 online and 1k/2k limit online and only god knows what stakes live in Macau (1 house/ 2 house), so what, he's going to try and concentrate on a 1.5K donkament in Indiana or Oklahoma that isn't even worth traveling to for most pros?
Donkament players who pretend like you can treat poker like Chess or any other sport are tiresome...you'll never know who is the best, bc it isn't necessarily in their interest to advertise the fact they are crushing/pros to an audience that includes their potential playing partners.
Cash game poker is where people make a living at poker.....for the most part people can't survive on JUST SOLELY non-High Roller tournament play; it just doesn't work mathematically for the vast majority of players.....all the while people make 6 figure incomes just grinding midstakes NLH at the Commerce every day in anonymity....
