Tony G is one of the biggest stars of the poker scene. He made a name for himself at the largest cash games in the world and is also famous because of his loud mouth. In the interview, Tony tells that he is no longer the manager of the Lithuanian basketball team The businessman and Poker pro talked to r reporter Tobias Frey and revealed some secrets: crazy cash games in Minsk, Belarus and Moscow, his Russian travels in general
tony g is very aware of his image, at the poker table, and in the media. i believe that every word that comes out of his mouth is calculated and has a purpose. whether or not its true and what his motives are is up to us to decide.

Tony G reminds me of the great fisherman who always tells the story, but rarely has the fish to prove what he caught. Of course with him he's the fish and gets lucky when he catches the turn or river or both. Sorry, but he's just to impressed with himself for me to take a real liking to him, but hey! He's apparently done somethiong right to get where he's at.

This number is steady changing, i can remember a short skit that was shown during the coverage of an aussie millions about 5 years ago where he said something like 4 mio for his biggest pot. on other tv poker shows his numbers of biggest winning and losing sessions were also changing all the time. I think that he really just tells 50% of the whole story and making some things up

I read he played a pot for that value in PLO with Russians, we usually read higher values with Chinese players, but looks like the Russians aren’t very far from that reality, at least Tony G’s Russian opponents. In the interview, he doesn’t clarify if he won or lost that pot, but the person who asked him that said he didn’t had too. It was a way to guarantee an answer, but know we all keep this doubt about that single hand that was his biggest pot. If he had won it, I guess he would have told it even if not asked, knowing now that he didn’t talked about that, maybe he folded before the river.

Its unbelievable just to imagine, that you can win so much money, only because of "card game" I think, you simply cant realize how much money is in pot (if the pot is really big) because if you start to think about it (like what you can buy for it ) you will sh*t your pants, and will not playing so well..
