Bodog Ari

I'm Ari Engel and am also known as BodogAri online. I've played poker for a living for virtually my entire post-college life. In the last few years I have started teaching people my style and philosophy on poker tournaments. Many of them have done very well. If you are interested in getting my help, email:

Wednesday, April 26, 2006


Another amazing day. I'm really tired, had a long day. In the afternoon $500 plo on pokerroom i finished 4, and in the night Dise 30R, I finished 2nd. Less than a week ago, I was complaining about the "worst run of my poker life".

i hate you I've been working 13 hours a day and can't even get in one tourney a day... I've been cashing at over 30% on Dise which is very solid for me but no time to play much anymore. Can I really complain about flying jets 6 days a week though?? Nice job... keep rolling in the tourneys brother. GL Wes

Ari -

just read some of the comments to your posts and one thing stands out hardcore.

SHIPIT is a serious ARI-hater.

he asks questions and when he doesnt like the answers he talks down to you...

ya i know shipit is a well respected cash game player, but at the same time, he is a HATER. probably because you get more recognition than he does.

keep up the impressive aggressive stlye. F the Haters.

hey dawg, i'd rather people question my moves, than feel like they'll be told off for questioning me. I believe his comments are mearly to better his understanding of the game and nothing more.

On other notes, doing well in the 30R again tonight as we approach the bubble. Ty for the congrats Wes and dawg.

Dawg, It appears you are the hater SHIPIT hater lol.. I have never talked Ari down.. I have on many occassions told him what I feel in general about his poker play..I believe in speaking the truth, you should learn to do this are 4 different things I have said to ARI in 4 different posts..

I still think you are a very tough aggressive player..But you make some really questionable calls in situations that you yourself create...

I've watched you play quite often.. You are a very sharp young aggressive poker player..

I'm sure you also play very tough seasoned players and you are way ahead of your time for your short poker career.. Online can do that for good players, who want to become great..Shipit

If I was to guess I would say it's about 3-4 times.. not 24, although for you playing 20 tourneys a day it might be 12-1 meaning 1 year equals one month of live... Been fun, have a good trip talk when you get back... SHIPIT

So Dawg where is this hate you say I have?? Don't twist the truth.. That's a womans quality...might have to change you're name to PUSSYCAT from Dawg if you continue ...and by the way I'm not the shipit you must think I am.. I play on bodog only as SHIPITFISH

Ari, What you said to Dawg is very close to the truth, But I'll add this...I find it interesting to talk to a young good poker player.. I'm more from the old school, being middle age now.. ButI have one thing most of all you younger guys haven't had.. I have played live poker for over 12 years AND online for 4 years now.. I have ran hands by TOP pro's for years including Negreanu, and players who have made a living in cash games and tourneys for 25 years...

If you really read my posts carefully you will learn something.. Maybe you don't feel you need to..I'm sure I can learn from you too... poker is never ever totally conquered, when you stop questioning, learning discussing and getting better you will be left behind. you said this to Dawg about me... *I believe his comments are mearly to better his understanding of the game and nothing more*.
You showed some realy maturity here when you said this, Also If you look at the few plays I have questioned you will see they were mistakes, especially that K5 trash lol again playing with you so Dawg (Pusssycat)don't even go there with the hate comments.. Heck you play so many tourneys you will make mistakes....I always try to learn from my past mistakes.. I have played smaller live tourneys in my area for years and went from being a beginner to being in the top 3 at my casinos... I havent had the time to play as you do in all the big events online.. But I will have more time soon as my daughter is leaving the nest (single Dad) Hopefully you want to continue talking poker, it's your blog I'll hang out as long as you want to rap.. See you in Vegas...Shipitfish
