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:

Doug Lee, New Weekly training and Ftops

I decided last minute to skip the Borgata WPT event, seemed a little crazy to fly cross country for just one tournament, and I kinda hate visiting the east coast during the winter. I had to get in my live poker fix though and luckily for me there was a sick event being held Caesar's Palace in Vegas. It was a $240 buyin, where the winner won a seat to the NBC Heads Up invitational (this was the only seat in which the public could win their way in). I built up a stack early in the event, then proceeded to suckout on a really good online player to build a really nice stack. I proceeded to play a little too loose, but was generally holding my own... got to play with a former student of mine. All was looking pretty good, until with about 40 left, I was moved to a table that featured Eric Baldwin and Justin Young. I lost a race to Eric Baldwin, got coolered in another pot, and then was left with 4-5bb and eventually lost. Not a big deal... But, the highlight of the day was playing with Doug Lee. I hadn't played with him for a while, (the last time we played- itm of the Caesars 1k HU where I won my 2nd ring) he both called me the biggest nit in the world and called my 14bb shove with q4). For those that don't know about Doug Lee, one of 2+2's longest threads is about him... He's basically a confirmed angle shooter, who has done tons of unethical and low things throughout his career. So it came as no surprise that he tried pulling an angle on our table that day. He posted the big blind and played out the hand and then the next hand the button was in front of him. The dealer started dealing and had almost completed when I protested saying that the button was in the wrong seat. I called Doug out for it, telling him no wonder everyone says you are an angle shooter and too his credit he didn't defend his actions. Luckily for me I woke up with a6 in the BB a few hands later when he shoved 9.8bb from the hijack with qt and knocked him out.

I launched a weekly review of some of the deep tournament runs I've made of late. This week was my first week running it and I was very happy with the turnout and the feedback from it. If you are interested in details, please email

This weeks marks the beginning of another Ftops series. I've played in 2 events so far with no success, but I'm looking forward to playing some more and hopefully hitting my first Ftops Jersey.

Thoroughly cooked, I entitled you all again. After my prolonged presence in the forum is not, I could not procure the shibboleth to your olden profile and started a chic one. I'm glad that I am again with you.
