How did you get into poker?
Friend gave me a chipset for my birthday. than few weeks later said u can play this for money online. Eventhough I went broke in first days after depositing 50$ I was hooked
What games / stakes do you normally play?
Im a true mtt grinder. grind 10$R up to 200$R and Freezouts from 50$ to 1K$. Prefer to play deep but fare very well in getting a bigstack in early levels. Maintaining that bigstack is a total different thing :)

Stars/FTP cause of software Ladbrokes cause of structure

What is your best poker moment?
Winning the Tournament leaderboard on Pokerstars in my 3rd week after depositing. Taking 1K$ free munniez cause in the promised HU match vs a PS pro Vanessa Rousso didnt show up and sat out. Even better after complaining to support I gotz another free HU Match and even a 3rd untill she finally showed up
What do you class as your biggest achievement to date?
Final tabling the MCOP €1590 event. Eventhough I didnt won it and won more in other tournys the prestige is way bigger imo. Never played in a tougher field than that vs WPT and EPT winners and online highstakers
Online: Sunday buzz Ladbrokes 1st for € 27.5K Live: Vip days Venlo 2nd (after dealing 3way and flipping for titel) for € 28K
What are your poker ambitions? How are you working to achieve them?
Gotta get a bracelet somewhere in life. How? I guess by mugging the shit out people
Do you prefer playing live or online?
Although the weeks abroad for live comps are sweet holidays and good fun No field/game will beat online poker to me. Live pokerz can be to boring at times playing just the one table
If you didn't play poker what would you do?
Prolly work as a consultant
How do you keep yourself ahead of the game?
somehow gotz the ability to learn and adapt while playing. Discussing hands with players u respect and by playing a shitload of games beats every Book or vid
What is your preparation routine for each session?
Wake up at 4pm. drinking coffee reading mails to 6pm. Eat/cook breakfast 6 to 7pm. start grinding

Tough to say. I think from all the players I talk to I picked up different things which improved my game

Philip. cause even on the coldest day in vienna he still wears shorts and flipflops. and yes that includes the outside smoking :) he goes to a certain point that he even looses them shorts in a random club. what a guy
What software or learning tools do you use?
Why do you choose to play for Pokerstaking?
The comfort of them taking the varience and me taking a large part of the winnings. Never will u find a better deal than here at pokerstaking. +the fact they understand varience aswell and are allways willing to work with the players instead of treating them like assets
What is the best advice you can give aspiring players?
Dont ever think u r the best after running hot for a few weeks. The game is changing rapidly and u needz to keep improving daily eventhough u r winning. If ur not a winning player pls join me at any table
