A few years ago a Romanian won Sunday Million in Pokerstars ( he won a prize of over 200,000 dollars ). His account was only a few days old. Several online newspapers wrote about it, but this men did not give an interview. Anything is possible in poker.

That proves , dule-vu , that anyone who knows how to play poker live , he can actually do this as well on the online poker rooms , there are not many differences , only some tricks you have to learn , especially vs the donk players and the ATC callers for any kind of flip , lol . Smile
And age won't be such an obstacle , especially if he has some interests to spend time during tournaments , if he gets bored easily , especially if the country he lives at is in a friendly time zone for poker (morning or afternoon to evening Blink) . He can win live , he can also win online .

You can play poker very well in a tournament or on more games, but if the software doesn't help, then achievements will not be too much from poker. There are always players who have fantastic luck (which is bizarre) and we who are too disadvantaged by software...

With all my respect, one simple example doesn´t make a probe of anything. The probes are in the thousands of players who did it in the past. The matter with that is that no ever the better player online is the best player in live poker. The particular situation with McMillen maybe his approach to the poker online and the technology. When poker online start to be popular, he would have around 55 years old. That´s why I want to know more of him.

This battle HU last very short period of time , only 15 minutes , time enough to declare one of the two last standing men the final winner and the one who got the precious bracelet , one of the bracelets that will be awarded this year for the first time online !! The whole tournament lasted 10 hours , I guess it had a break for Day two , or else 10 hours straight is exhausting , even for young players Smile After 10 hours of battling with the other players , he managed to win . Congratulations to him Smile

The time that you can spend in a heads-up is proportional to the skills and the balanced of the stacks of each one. If the skills and luck are similar, the amount of the stacks is the boss. You can play like a cat with a mouse if you have a bigger enough stack. I love the Heads-up situation finishing a long tournament, including when I lost (a bit less )

Any live poker tournament can become a success for each of us, if we know how to play acceptable poker. There is no greater happiness... when an anonymous person comes and wins a tournament with big prizes. Is very nice.
