A stranger is being shown around a village that he has just become part of. He is shown a well and his guide says "On any day except Tuesday, you can shout any question down that well and you'll be told the answer" .

The man seems pretty impressed, and so he shouts down: Why not on Tuesday? and the voice from in the well shouts back: Because on Tuesday, itís your day in the well

I am going upstairs to eat dinner. I'll post some background in a minute, then I'll answer any questions for the next 24+ odd hours. Hopefully this is a good one.

How did you get started in poker? I guess I am asking for your general poker story?

PT stats? VPIP/PFR/AF, etc?

What stakes do you play?

Do you play professionally?

Do you plan on playing for the rest of your life or do you use poker as a means to finance other investments/businesses, etc?

Any general tips for SSNL players about what they could be doing to become better?

Did you have any "aha" moments where everything just started to click for you?

Have any interesting hands you care to share? Biggest pot? A sick bluff? A sick call down? etc?

PS- sorry for all the questions.

On my book:
I have been in the process for the past ~2 years of writing a no limit holdem book. In the middle of that, I took almost a full year off when I wasnt playing/posting. I finished it 2 or so weeks ago, and am now in the process of editing and adding hand examples. I hope to submit it and get through the process of publishing, soon. All I can say about it, (with the exception of Coltrane/Matt Flynn book, which should be good, too) is that it goes above and beyond anything else written by a huge margin.

On poker:
I've played up to 10/20 online and 10/20 live. I've played for ~4+ years at this point, and have played in numerous cardrooms: Online at so, so many sites. Boston and NYC underground clubs. Turningstone, Foxwoods, Las Vegas casinos. At one point I was a "professional," where I was not going to school and just playing. Now I go to school, and coach & play to a degree, and I would no longer consider myself "professional".

On my coaching:
I have coached many, many players, and with the exception of ML4L, was one of the pioneers of formulating lessons and coaching fellow players. Some of my students (past students) have done very well for themselves. In their interest I wont disclose names, but I'm fairly confident I'm the best coach period. Not to say anyone from 3bet.net etc. are not good - in fact, quite the opposite, many of their coaches are real life friends who are incredibly good poker players - but I dont think (once again, with the exception of ML4L) anyone has the pedigree of "students who have done well for themselves."

On my schooling:
I have been to 3 colleges. I started at RPI, then abandoned ship. Then I went to Fairfield University, then abandoned that one, too. Currently, I am at College of Marin. I hope to finish at either UMass, UMaryland, or UDelaware. I started as an engineering major, switched to communications, and am currently a philosophy major. I plan on going to law(l) school, but need to finish college first.

On my life:
I live in the Bay Area at the moment, although it's been quite a journey, as evidence by transferring 3 times already, and going for lucky number 4. I'm an east coast guy at heart, since I went to boarding school for high school in western MA, and grew up in CT. Right now I'm in a difficult situation since many of my good friends are in the NE. However, I do have a gf, which helps matters immensely. =)

Probably alot more, please ask me any questions. I'm solid at non poker questions, although obviously not an expert in anything but poker.

What would your advice be for a thinking/winning SSNL player who just feels like they have hit their "poker potential ceiling?"
