For the first time ever in public, I detail exactly what decisions led to my success. Some of these techniques are so good, I kept them a secret until retirement.
“This was pretty tough and I ended up 50 tabling. […] I was getting 6k vpp an hour. This is completely insane, if you cough you are done.
In general, for high-count tabling there is extreme stress induced on the body, I think my practice with exercise beforehand has helped me sleep and play more comfortably …. I probably sweated an entire bucket through my hands over the last couple of days — talcum powder, gloves, and many towels didn’t help.”
This is what I said January 2nd, 2013 before winning the trophy that I am most proud of — after playing poker nonstop for most of 40 hours, at an insane speed for high stakes that has never been attempted before or since. I won $5,100 on the table, plus another $12,700 in rakeback, and $3,100 in special awards for winning the contest, for a total of $20,900. That year in total, I ended up profiting over $500,000.
