i think anyone can watch the pros at fulltiltpoker that now u can play against them almost anywere i have been playing against them on the 1+.10 sitngoes and the past week i was on a freeroll and there was some "pro poker player" of course i ask them why are they playing for a 22 dollars prize, or why are they playing to get a seat on the $1000 freeroll those are very low prizes, but the "pros" never answer....
does anybody now why are they playing lowstakes?????????????????????
contract.today played in FT big dollar tourney. where top 5 get tickets to the 12000$ ME qualify and sat with unknown to me red pro from switzerland. she folded every hand the whole hour till she got pocket aces, and i got pocket jacks (i got the third one on flop ) she wasn't interested in the gameat all. sometimes i see the red pros in 6 FTP SnGoes.
Part of there contract obligations. You'll almost always see 1 red pro playing micro stakes every day. There's no solid reason for it and I'm sure they don't bring there best game when playing low limits.

Posted by IslandJack: The only one I ever saw was Sexton's son, and he got out real early in a tourney. Never seen them on S&G's. Anybody know what level you can play them on? I'm still playing low 2.25 limits.
i've even played with them at 1.10$ 90 seater sit&go's, i've seen them there quite regularly. I wasn't gonna play that sit&go myself, but then i saw a pro was playing that and registered

Some of the players ft has put points into the contract that they MUST play lower stakes also in order to attract players. But as Calmplay said above - its obv Durr and other high stakes pros are not going to bother themselves (obv its not in their contract) with it as it would be -EV for them to waste a table for lower limits
