    Not really involved in any one. I've given to some jewish organizations in the past and some breast cancer things that friends are involved in.

    No limit hold em. deepstack tourneys specifically. I do play OFC. I love pineapple with jokers. I play that with Joe Kuether for hours on end at every stop lol.

    I like reentry tournies but not unlimited reentries. I think one per day is ideal or if there's 2 starting days then a total of 2 to be used at your discretion whether you need 2 on 1 day or you can play one on either day. The multiple reentry ones do favor deep pocketed players (who aren't always pros by the way). There's a lot of rich fish who fire multiple bullets and that is good for the game actually. They can accumulate a lot of chips but they are so bad ultimately they won't be able to sustain it and piss them away down the stretch. You need to have them to create bigger prize pools and incentive travel for people. Nothing I hate more than going a long way, busting fast and being fucked. I won't go to certain venues now if it isn't at least one reentry. Too high risk.

    That can get tricky sometimes. My girlfriend busted me from a tourney once with 12 left and i wasn't happy about it lol. especially since i staked her. I don't soft play often, my good friends who are poker players are also competitors and you want to beat them. Ive found every time I've ever soft played someone I've gotten fucked by the poker gods because of it so now it's all fair game.
