It is a performance to win 5 times such a title but also a lot of money. It's like i'm investing a dollar and i would win a tournament with about $ 120 for 1st. The huge difference makes him have a lot of money even if we won a game with 500 or more players. Obviously we also put his level of skills who is very big.

Shows once again that poker is a game of skill and not a game of luck. can't see such a thing happening in a roulette game. I can't see how it is still considered a luck game here in Israel when even day trade on the stock exchange is much more dangerous.
Hopefully it will change soon and we could go back to playing online on the large sites and of course live games.

I wish you can live it roeish3. The countries' regulations aren´t fair, and totally different between them! But about the news, this man give me a lot of hope because he is in the "middle fifties" and is starting a professional career. Might can be that in my "middle sixties" I could start to win some money in the online poke...hahaha

To make more money from poker we will have to deposit more and maybe in one day we will have the opportunity but at this moment is almost impossiblefor us. We to try something need to play satellites and in the main tournament to win big money.

In my case this history is a far dream. I wish to be in a table of one of that big tourney, playin against some legend. Look the people and the context, smell the air. But is a dream, beautifull but impossible. I´m not a good player, I have luck (or not), might make a fortune´s move, but this not be enough to stay there... Sad

It's hard to qualify for a good poker tournament but this thing it is possible and you just have to play. I would like to make more money from poker and play some live tournaments through satellites. I wish you luck for more money and a good health.
