Welcome Back Animal

One of the players I first met when I started playing is Robert Price. One of the few players I know that is equally effective online and live.

1) What have you been up to in the last year?

CPC Nov 2006
Mansion Poker Dome Las Vegas Jan 2007
Cardiff GUKPT Feb or Mar 2007
WSOP Las Vegas July 2007

and lots online as usual

2) Are you still doing the same thing - professional poker player
Trying to, yes

3) Have you had any big successes in the last year?
Er winning packages to all of the above, biggest online cash was 24 or $25k winning the old Mansion $100k tournament.

4) Have you learnt any lessons in the last year?
Just what i always knew, poker is a grind for a living

5) How has the world of poker changed over the last 12 months?
Dunno really although there seems to be more egos out there than ever, its quite funny playing live and watching them but i rarely play live unfortunately.

6) Has your approach to poker changed during this time?
Yeh think it changes regularly depending on my mood, results and confidence but all those are interlinked.

7) Your ambition last year was to make enough money to avoid going back to an office job, a deep finish in a big live event, sponsorship and to lose 1 stone!.Did you get anywhere near this?
Ah some of those ambitions are for years to come not one year. Anyway i def made enough money not to go back to work yet, although a part time job could be a good distraction from the bad run im in lately. I do have a 10 player playoff in Australia in Jan 2008 where winner gets $50k of sponsorship so fingers crossed. Dunno what i weighed 1 year ago but i have lost 1/2 stone that i put on in vegas 6 weeks ago !

Do you have a new ambition?
Rediscover a good run and some real enjoyment for the game, all too much of a boring routine slog lately. I think autumn & winter i have a different mindset when its dark early and it feels good playing more poker.

8) Are you still playing as Animal on Littlewoods
Very very rarely the grass remains greener elsewhere lets just say !

9) Are you still playing as much poker?
Yeh prob same as 1 year ago roughly

10) You asked for observer chat on Crypto and got it!- Whats the biggest improvement required now?
CPC double shootouts ! 'YES I can't wait for them!

11)Anything else you want to tell us?

Thank you kind sir
