Posted on 05 April 2011 by "T".

Disaster month? He lost less than a million last month. He used to lose more than that in just one session in the good old Full Tilt days.

I saw him playing the $2/4 PLO tables last night at PS's so after seeing he that he must be down some money now. Everytime I watched him and not in the Showdow he was playing 50/100 tbls and maybe 5K+50 HU's trny on the side. I know this his Showdown record is going down so will see what the future holds.

with the blinds so low at pokerstars compared to fulltilt he must have gone a little too lose and aggressive at tables. 0.5 million is not much of a loss considering his crazy playing style, though hope he cud win some

I don't care how good he plays at times he is a so call pro and doesn't know BR Management. If he had put 6.5 million in the bank like a normal person when he won 7 million. He won 2.2 from 2K and then got up to 7 Mil so leaving 500K in BR I think he do alright and he wouldn't be in the position he is now. I'm telling you iof i lost almost 7 million dollars I wanna shoot myself that's just plain stupidity on his part.

He is kind of a tool, i agree Crazy. This guy will either win very big or loose
everything alltogether.

I have to agree with crazyhorse99 about the bankroll management. This is the first lesson you need to teach before starting playing poker on real money. Many try to play at limits way higher than their bankroll allows it and sometimes win but on the long run they'll go broke.
His biggest mistake by far was that time on Full Tilt Poker when he lost 4.4 Million Dollars and bust his roll.
We'll see what he'll do on this week Superstar Showdown against Scott Palmer, which by the way made a spectacular recovery on the 6 max PLO tables at Full Tilt Poker.

havent seen him so far at Fulltilt and cant really imagine. I mean if stars signs such a story and player they will get sure he will play for them only... Bad for FT they may lost an mystic history that many people will remember for long.
