A Night on the Town with Mr. Soprano

This is my interview with MrSoprano, who plays as MrSoprano111 on Full Tilt Poker. I can’t think of anything else to say about this introduction, so I am going to dive right in.

First of all, congrats on the Season 4 victory. You are a god among men. I bow to you.

Is this the first Season you have played the Twitter Poker Tour? If not, how many seasons have you played?
Yes, first season.

How long have you been playing NLHE? Online/live? Which do you prefer?
Been playing poker for many years. Started probably around 14 years ago while going to College. Used to play at the Trump Taj in AC many days a week. NLHE wasn’t as big then, so my game was 7 Stud. Since then I’ve been playing both online and live. I definitely prefer live play so that when I get beat by some donk I can throat punch them afterwards.

Favorite hand?
Hmm, tough question. I rarely see a hand I don’t like. :-) 57s is a nice hand…

Who is your favorite pro and why?
Don’t have a favorite “Pro” per se. I think most “Pros” are over rated and just backed by the right people/corps and have the money to get in the right games and make names for themselves.

Would you make a career of poker, is that something you want?
I’ve actually been pondering this for a while. I think I could actually make a good living doing this. Time would be my biggest downfall to achieving this.

Outside of poker, what do you do?
Ummmm, I’m a “Manager” of a Waste Management Company in Jersey….. Seriously though if I told ya I’d have to kill ya. Hehe.

How do you handle tilt?
Horrible, worst part of my game. I tilt so hard it’s not even funny. Partly because I’ve been playing low stakes online against the biggest donks I’ve ever seen. When I lose a big hand I play every hand until I either go broke or double, triple etc

Do you like turtles?
YESSS!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0XXmVts1y0

Any memorable hands from this Season?
Memorable, hmmmm, what were we talking about again? Seriously though, the one hand that I remember is the first hand of week 10 where I got knocked out when I flopped a set against an over set.

Who it the toughest TPT opponent?
If by toughest you mean biggest donkey, then that prize would have to goto KingSteve7 who had no regard for pot control and had no problem going AI at any given time LOL. Had to fold the best hand many times to him. Also, Broker91 made it a close run at the end and made me play my A game the last two weeks.

Anyone you don’t like playing a pot with?
Yeah, anyone who re-raises a pot out of position with T5o…

Um, do you like the Soprano’s?
It was the best show on TV. Would love to see The Soprano’s: The Younger Years. Who wouldn’t want to see a spin off series about a younger Uncle Jr., Paulie Walnuts and Tony Soprano Sr.???? JohnnyFilmmaker let’s pitch this to someone!!!

I don’t have proof, but based on the way you started and finished the Season, I am investigating the possibility that you use software that allows you to see the table’s hole cards. Any comment?
Well to be honest I did, but I had to stop using it because it must have been broken because all I saw were hands like T5o, 27, 58 etc being played. Also to confirm that it must have been broken I regularly would see coolwhipflea openly fold QQ.

Do all your bases belong to us?
No, but all your monies belong to me muahahhaha.

Do you take advantage of the training sites offered by the TPT to the winners? Are you learning anything? Forgetting stuff?
Won a free month to DeucesCracked.com but honestly never used it when I took first in week 2. Now that I’ve won a 6 month sub to DeucesCracked.com I will definitely take advantage this time.

Anything else you want to say? Shoutout someone? Curse someone?
Just happy I found the #tpt. Great way to have fun, play cards and improve my game. Much respect to cprpoker, pokerplasm and whoever else runs/regulates the#tpt. Looking forward to the upcoming Season and ready to TID!!!!!

    who would have guessed that was Carse? All that time off must have been spent practicing for drag photos.
