I am Mike McDonald, a very lucky poker player. Ask me anything
I've been getting more into reddit recently and friends of mine recommended I do an AMA. I started playing poker a decade ago just thinking that I could earn a set of poker chips from an online poker site and lose less than they would cost me at a store. I never looked back and earlier this year crossed 10 million in earnings.
Outside of poker I'm fairly into fitness, nutrition, rock climbing, board games, card games, video games and just about any form of mental competition.
I'm unsponsored and as a result will attempt to answer any questions as best I can without worrying too much about professional reputation. I'll answer all questions I can and specifically say if there is anything I'd rather not discuss. I don't really want to answer questions like "rank the following players" as I play with many on a day to day basis and presumably many will read this thread. As it will inevitably get asked I'll say Ivey is the best and I wish I knew how, Negreanu is very good, and if you are a casual poker fan anyone else you're asking about probably sucks.
This is also the best penmanship I've exhibited since I once had 7 figures in debts written on a hotel laundry sheet
Edit: Just realized I accidentally posted it in the wrong forum
Edit 2: I have a dentist appointment from 2:50-3:50, I'll answer everything once I'm back at 4:05ish
Edit 3: I'm back now
Edit 4: Going to take a break to stream video games at http://www.twitch.tv/mike1109/
Edit 5: Thanks reddit so much for all the responses. I'm gonna get some sleep now, but may check back tomorrow in case I've missed anything
