More and more high stakes players are convinced that they need Smart Spin's help to win even more at Spin & Go's.
And blackaces93 is a great example of a very successful poker player, a former MTT grinder who turned his eyes to Spin & Go's and now makes 50 cEV per game at the $100's, and he has decided to join our community!
He's got many notable $20k+ scores and the biggest was a Sunday Million

blackaces93: Hello, Dolar!! It's a big pleasure to do this interview for you. Ok, from the beginning: before I started to play poker I used to play tennis for about 12 years. I played professionally for about half of that time. For about 18 months I lived in Spain and trained in a Tennis Academy in Valencia. That was a really great time for me and I really enjoyed it. I met amazing people and had the pleasure to train with the big names of this sport like David Ferrer who has been Top 10 in the world for quite a long time.
When I was 18 I decided to finish
dolar: Why did you drop tennis? Looks like you were on a path to something great.
blackaces93: There was a couple of reasons behind that. First of all, when I moved to Spain, I realised how hard tennis is. To give you an example, difference between tennis in Poland and in Spain is like playing $7 Spin & Go's vs playing $100 Spin & Go's. It's just quite a different world. Even in the smallest
dolar: Oh, I am sorry to hear that. Did you find some joy in poker or was it later, after you went through this horrible situation?
blackaces93: Poker was a little bit later, but it has this element of competition I really needed. Spins and HU games are really fun to play and I like the fact that you can prove that you are
dolar: First, let's talk about your MTT successes because there were a lot of them! You've got many final tables, 3rd place at Sunday Million for $170k, 2nd in Sunday Warm-Up for $38k and many notable $20k wins. I mean... wow! Which one was the most important for you?
blackaces93: I think the Sunday Million was the most important for me. Of course financially, but it was really to give me some kind of extra motivation to work hard. The Warm-Up was really nice too, at that time I had a nice heater because on Thursday I made the final table of Thursday Thrill and won about $20k and only 3 days later on Sunday I finished 2nd in the Warm-Up. Wonderful times :)
dolar: We've got many former MTT players here, now playing Spin & Go's. You said it was time to find a new, younger lover. Do Spin & Go's make you feel young again?
blackaces93: Yeah, Spins give me some freshness I really needed. At the beginning of last
dolar: I am a little surprised that a really good MTT player is struggling with volume. Do you think that Spin & Go's are taking up more energy than MTT's?
blackaces93: Yeah, for me Spins are really much more energy
blackaces93: I thought about Smart Spin for quite a long time. You have really great players, the best coaches in the world. So, it was just a matter of time when I was going to make this decision. When killuifuplay wrote to me on Skype at the end of last year, I knew that he was going to convince me to join your team. And here I am :)
dolar: How did killuifuplay do it? Maybe I will use some of his tricks while talking to my mates.
blackaces93: Nothing special, we had a nice conversation about poker, tennis etc :) I think he understands my situation pretty well, also he played tennis so I hope I can challenge him at the next Smart Spin meeting. It's really a pleasure to work with a legend of HU, I hope I can learn from him as much as it's possible.
dolar: I heard that you've got big goals for 2017, can you share them with our readers?
blackaces93: Yeah, I want to learn as much as it's possible. At this moment I've got around 50chips per game at $100's, but I would love to increase my volume, that's one thing. I'm playing 2-3 tables at the same time so I have a pretty big problem with that. At the end of the year, I would love to increase my chips per game to 55, and try to play 4 tables. My dream is to touch 60 and it's gonna be really really hard in the long term, but the sky is the limit :) I really like CuAt69UsdSng's challenge. I think I would like to make something similar in the future so maybe in like 5-6
Good luck, we hope you will find here all the motivation and help that you need!
