These winnings were made mostly online or live?
I think when judging a player this little specification should be always mentioned, i mean there are amazing live tournament players like Seidel that don't even play online.
You make a very valid point I know a player who is from my hometown province here in Canada. He has made a lot of money playing online but does not want anyone to know who he is at all.
I never see him go to a live event and does not like to tell people what he does at all.
He was thinking about getting married and his girlfriend just thought he was going to university.
Her father feel in love with him when he asked him...
"So tell me son just how do you think your going to support my little girl or yourself son. An Arts degree is not worth much these days."
My friends response was (so i have been told was)
"Sir I have no idea who told you I was going to school for an Arts degree. I have already graduated with a Bachelor in Business Admin. & I also have my Masters Degree in Business Administrations. I am retired now Sir at the age of 26. I just thought I would keep living of the $3.5 million dollars I have won playing online poker
and spend the income from my 3 rental properties where I invested my first million."
His wife said her father hugged him and said welcome to our family my boy and kissed his cheek.
He has since taught his father in law to play cards.
Hmm I wonder how he is doing now.
