When I played the hot $22 and came second for $3k I watched with great interest the player who won the game. He was so experienced and seemed to just effortless grind up chips.

I took a sneaky look on Sharkscope and saw that he really does get some stunning results.

Since then I've been following him and seeing how he plays. How he handles situations. And I've picked up some amazing things he does that help him win pots and stop going busto. His biggest thing is he very very rarely goes All In. He will limit the pot and this allows him to get out of hands even when he thiknks he's been sucked out on.

He is a Ukranian player, and forget what you think about players from that region, this bloke can play.

Last night he won a $320 MTT for over $22k.

If you are on PS ever, look for him and watch him play. He is very very good, and by watching him I've picked up some good tips that have helped me out no end and my cash ratio has shot up since then.

His name is gosuoposum1

Yeah I know what u mean , I have some regulars which I like to follow and which I think helped me improve my game , I also agree with limiting the pot and the rare all-in strategy , only that it's hard to implement this kind of strategy in micro levels , when you have the regular donk shoving everything that has an A attached to it.

He's still in the $1 rebuy MM game with 3 million in chips.

I will safely bet he's going to finish in the top 100

Omg , just looked at his stats , it's unbeliavable , he has a profit of 390.000 $ this year , and 180.000 in the past 90 days , don't think he's worried about the 1 $ + rebuy tournament Smile).

Thats exactly what I mean. His stats are unreal and when you see him play you can see why too.

Graet advice! I'm from the U.S. and although I can't play at P.S. does anyone know if I can download the site just rto rail players. If so, I would like to know just to watch this guy play myself. Appreciate any feedback on this!

Nice post fcumred! This is the reason I read about evreything posted just so I can't catch any tips that would improve my game. Thanks!

I believe you can , I mean us players are allowed to play using play money , so it would be normal you'd have acces to the entire software , meaning you should be able to rail players . Thumbs Up

yes, green you can download and play, you'll only have access to the play money area for playing purposes and you won't be able to use the cashier. Hopefully it won't be too much longer.

Plan on railing this person as well. I'll bet when he shoves he's got the nuts or better... absolute. My BR has grown enough now where it's time to give the micros a rest and move up abit, Thanks for the heads up.

amazing s**t ,, i already know this player... he's enters all high tournaments.. so he's a regular..

a name i've seen many times...nevertheless i still think'' uhhmee'' is one of the best online players out there , if you wanna rail someone wo will win several tournaments a day..this is your guy to rail...

most enjoyable to watch this dude..if you see him at a final table... 88% of the time he comes out as winner or second..

bye the way ,, i'll rail this oposum dude ...if i find the time Smile

according to his profits ,certainly a person to follow for a while,, maybe i'll learn some
but i don't think i will ,by just watching his games..

I've always meant to spend a bit of time railing good MTT players - trying to learn from how they play.. I've watched a couple of videos - with commentary, but not much. But yeah - just following players around does seem like a good way to grab some free tips.

So the question is how much can we see when we watch a guy? i would love to be outside watching over the shoulder(so to speak) and able to see what his cards are and follow his bidding scheme. I love watching tv poker but online is so different that i want to see these guys play.
Here is a suggestion for the site....allow your best to be paid to allow others to watch as if they were sitting at their table watching behind them. The best would earn extra bucks for the priviledge and the ones watching would learn as long as they were not playing at the time. I think many new players would love the chance to observe a winning player from the start of the hand to the finish.

I have watched some times too such tournaments, when good players that win often,
play. But no matter what, at some point when i was in a similar spot, like they ones they
were when i was watching, i couldnt play the hand like they did.
Weird but i couldnt Smile

Even if this is not bad idea i dont think its possible to realise such thing. People would obviously try to abuse it. Not only that some good players wouldnt want to share with others their playstyle im sure. Just notice the poker pros that do share strategy and stuff with others,or they perform in TV events they are quite damn good but they have to adjust their playstyle and give so much more effort in order to place well i believe. Perhaps more replays on PokerStars could be not a bad thing. And dont take me wrong i like your idea i just think we wont see this implemented anytime soon

yeah watching good players sometimes can give you those essential "small fixes" you need to jump a level or two above your current game, surely it's best when you have a chance to watch them playing with cards shown (final tables of bigger events)- this way you get a lot more insight into their mind. thanks fcumred for giving info on this player, his stats are amazing...
