9stacks : When did you start playing poker? what interests you in the game?
Bhavye: Started playing poker quite a few years back. I’ve always enjoyed putting people under pressure.

9stacks : Will you consider yourself a casual player or a pro? Why?
Bhavye : I am a Casual player because I have not studied the game enough and I don’t put many hours in the game as I should be.

9stacks :What is your opinion on Poker being considered gambling?
Bhavye: People who consider it s gambling dont really understand the game, IMHO. It is a skill based game. Some bit of Luck is involved but only for a short while. In the long run its skill that takes you ahead and helps you earn accolades and the money. Period.

9stacks: What format do you prefer playing- Tournaments/cash
Bhavye: Tournaments. Because people fold in tourneys and not in cash

9stacks: Do you prefer annon tables? Do you think your game changes when playing on Anonymous table?
Bhavye: No don’t play annon. If I play annon, my game changes because I start gambling.

9stacks: Whose game do you follow mostly? Indian/global player. Anyone from 9stacks whose game you admire?
Bhavye: Doug Polk. More than his hands, I observe his overall strategy.
From 9stacks I like F1sh- he is hyper-loose aggressive

9stacks: Who is your favourite poker player? Are there any favourite poker lines that you live by?
Bhavye: Yes, infact i greatly admire Isildur1- Viktor Blom. I follow his game religiously.
My favorite poker line would be “You can’t win if you fold”
