Turtle from Entourage Periodically Graces Online Poker Tournament

Big_White, aka Turtle from Entourage, is a semi-permanent player at the Twitter Poker Tour. We wanted to find out what he is all about and how is acting career is panning out.

Congrats on your 1st place…wait a minute, you didn’t ship the #tpt. Oh yeah, coolwhipflea did, but we already interviewed his sorry ass. Okay, well congrats on your…WTF…you didn’t even play the #tpt last week. Okay, well….so do you even play the #tpt?
I do, occasionally, I can’t play as much as I would like because I normally work evening as a cook at Red Lobster! F***in lobsterman never lets me off for poker.

How long have you been playing poker?
Well I am the youngest in the #tpt I’m pretty sure, so not long, I learned when I was like 15 but I just started for real money in January in 2009. I’m still a noob.

Do you prefer live or online? Cash/MTT/SNG? Which do you prefer and why?
I prefer live, although I’m not old enough to go to a casino yet being only 19, but I play a cash game once a week or so at a friend from work’s place, and have yet to come out behind, but online, I have yet to come out ahead, you decide!

What’s your biggest win, whether online or live?
It was in a live cash game, I bought in for $25 and walked away with $195 in about 4 hours of poker.

Are you really Turtle from Entourage?
Sadly no, but he looks a lot like me, no?

Editor’s note: Yes you do, that is why I asked you.

Is poker just a hobby or yours or something you take very seriously?
Just a hobby, and a very expensive one!

What kinds of things do you do to improve your game? Discuss hands with friends? Internet forums? Books?
I talk to people who are more experienced in the game like you, and many others on twitter who I look at as good players.

What’s the deal with all the suck-outs and bad beats in online poker? Do you think it’s set up to see more action?
I don’t even want talk about it, I flopped a full house the other day and the son of a bitch who shoved caught runner runner quads, so f*** that donkey mother f***er!

Coke. Fine white powder or delicious carbonated, flavored, brown water?
Definitely a fine white powder, used to speed up and get shit done when tryin’ to meet a deadline!

I remember last year you were the youngest player to ship the #tpt. Did everyone sit out or did you just donkey luck box your way to the win?
I think that I luckboxed my way to HU with some homo, and then I started playing serious, shoved with 73os and runner runnered quads, can’t remember to be honest!

Do you have a favorite poker pro? If so, who and why? If not, why and why not?
By far it would have to be Daniel Negreanu, I just love the way he plays the game and reads people, he always knows! Just remember that!

Your twitter bio states you “dislike f***ing idiots” Can I ask if you dislike it, why do you still eff them?
Because sometimes idiots are good in bed, that is all I can say! (a**hole)

What do you do when not playing poker?
Work, play my guitar, and hang out with Kristin, (yes the crazy one), and chill with her daughter Natalie, fun times.

What do you think of the recent idea to Ustream the #tpt events?
I think its awesome, its fun to have everyone together to talk about anything, but there guest last week, I don’t know, but he was some dude from Oklahomo with a cock in his throat so I shut it off and went to bang my head on a wall!

Is there anyone you would like cprpoker and coolwhipflea to have as a guest in a future Ustream #tpt broadcast?
Naked Paris Hilton an option? If not I guess…hmmm…I wouldn’t mind coming onto the show sometime, and maybe ummmm…_desperado that’s it, he would be hilarious.

How did you find the Twitter Poker Tour?
You told me about it when I met you on twitter, noob! Use your brain.

Do you play any poker besides NLHE?
Yes sir, I like razz, stud, and omaha hi/lo.

Do you have a favorite hand to play?
Yeah, my favorite hand is AT of spades,I don’t why but I always seem to hit when I play it.

Well, whatever dude, any shout outs or thoughts or anything you want the world to know?
Fear me, cuz I have a dream, and I won’t stop till I get where I’m pleased, that is all, thanks, bye.

Thanks for your time, Turtle.
