Poker Pros’ Weird Gifts and Bad Beats (vid)

surprise gift

PokerStars Team Online member Mikhail “Innerspy” Shalamov has returned with the second episode of his ‘Not Just Another Interview’ series where he asks fellow Team Online Pros some unorthodox questions.

Shalamov is a highly experienced and successful online poker player that has also moved across to the live game with varying levels of success. He has made a number of cashes at the World Series of Poker but is yet to take down a major title.

This is primarily because he is more comfortable playing online at PokerStars where he regularly reaches SuperNova Elite status. He is a feared player online and once even broke a record by playing more than 40,000 hands in one day. He actually achieved that amount in just 19 hours but that record has since been broken but it just shows how committed he is to being successful online.

He has a great personality too, which is one of the reasons PokerStars brought him into Team Online, along with his poker ability of course. This shows through in the video where he actually answers the questions himself.

Anyhow, back to the video at hand!

Last time around he asked what players would choose between no poker or no sex for a year? This time however, he asked two questions, the first being “What is the most interesting or unusual gift that you have ever given or been given?” and “What do the players say when they suffer a bad beat online?

Among those answering the questions this time were a large number of PokerStars Team Online with the likes of Isaac “ike” Haxton, George “Jorj95” Lind, Luka “LukaSteel” Kovac, Alex “Kanu7” Millar, Mickey “mement_mori” Petersen and Felix “xflixx” Schneiders giving their answers.

We have to admit that there are some strange answers to the questions with the gifts including a fire extinguisher, cactus and a nodding head Obama whilst you can pretty much what some of the answers to the second question were.

Also check out the Haxton laugh right at the end of the video!

We will of course keep you informed as of when the next episode is released as you will already be probably wondering just what the next set of questions are going to be. We know that we are!
