    Default Time's Poker News column mentions Queso

    And quite prominently at that! It is actually called Poker Player.

    When do we get to see a copy of the article? Scanned or otherwise?

    TIME asked me ahead of TIME if I'd be okay with him mentioning me-- and my play-- in his article.

    Of course I want national exposure and the unabashed adoration (or derision-- take your pick, lol) that goes with it!

    Seriously, though, it's a great article and an excellent point about knowing your opponents.

    Really great article TIME. It is an excellent illustration of thinking on levels and it really nailed home the point. Good on you too Queso, for allowing time to use you in the example...I am sure that part of the reason that it reinforces it so much is because I know of the players involved.

    To be honest, it came across as a total brag post by TIME.

    I'm just chopbusting. It's a good article that nicely illustrates a fundamental concept. Nice one TIME and well done Queso for letting him win that hand (opps, I mean, mention you in the article).

    Well, he's right, at that point in TIME, I would have trapped with the nine in my hand, and I expected he would also. His betting out convinced me he didn't have trips. Once I made that read, I went with it all the way. I've since learned to vary my play in that situation, and as a result, it's easier to conceive that someone else might be doing the same.
