HeyJeff

Thanks for doing this! I want to know when you decided you wanted to go professional and only focus on that? What age and what was the turning point?

I was playing since High School. After I graduated college that was just what I was doing & had a six figure score at the wsop in 1k buy in 2009 and the rest is history!

Hi Jeff I've been enjoying watching your twitch stream even though my laptop speakers are busted lol firstly I've noticed you've got 22 of the top teir chests to open, any chance of throwing a couple my way:D now on to the serious question after watching your stream I've noticed you have made the PT4 table stats almost invisible until you hover over them which I didn't realise you could do, I've learnt that part, how would I set it up to show the stack sizes in big blinds where avatars normally are?

Congrats on your big scores what are the biggest downswings or losses suffered in a day?

I believe I finished 221st for my deepest run. (Can see on hendonmob.com all results for players!). I would say take your time, be there early be off your phone & sell some action to friends if the buy in is very high for you so you can relax play your best and not stress!

Hello Jeff , big fan here like many other!!I really miss the stream house period :)

Do you think that bluffing with blockers or hero calling in micro stakes is a waste of money?Should a micro stakes player stick to abc poker?

Is balancing mandatory in those stakes or playing only strong/semi strong hands will lead you to be a profitable player in the long term?

Hello Jeff,

I am looking at getting back into poker. What are your recommendations regarding how the game has adjusted, and how to rebuild/test my game/tendencies? Current research and game play.

I play tournament NLHE only.

My success has been greatest in MTTs. I had a couple big finishes on Sunday's, and have not played poker for 4 years. My hiatus was due to a business I took over.

I would suggest getting a program to study, I have on my website under affiliation some info on RYE and some discount codes (JeffGrossPoker.com/affiliation) I would do this over getting one on one coaching and it is not close.. This to me is the best thing you could do for your game as well as watch youtube videos and what not! Hope that helps.

Great question.. I am not so familiar with those games but I would think playing exploitative is the best practices there! Interesting though, think ABC gets it done!
