Her er et utdrag av intervjuet:
"Before you start playing big live tournaments, I feel like you need to have a lot of experience. A lot of guys will have one big score online or one big score live, and then they think they can beat $10,000 and $5,000 buy-in tournaments nonstop. It's just not practical.
"In general, I fully believe online players are way more advanced than most of the live guys, unless the live guys have been around for a long time. But people who don't have a lot of hands dealt to them, they are just at a huge disadvantage.
"Also, it's just so important to protect your money. Without money, you can't do anything in poker. You can't play. It's just so important to be really smart with your money. You need to manage it and be somewhat nitty. People who are crazy with their bankrolls just always go broke. Then they are looking for deals and ways to get back in. You don't want to be like that. Luckily, since I've started, I've never gone broke."
