Robert Gulkines Flink


G: For how long have you been playing poker? How often do you play online?
F: I did my first deposit when I was 19 years old and it’s my only deposit in the 3.5 years I have played. The amount of game time varies as I travel a lot, and during certain periods I can keep myself away from poker for weeks, while on other occasions I can play 30 hours at a stretch. An average day consists of 3-4 hours of play.


G: What made you start playing poker?
F: Poker was popular on TV, so during my time in secondary school we started to play about smaller sums and then I discovered that I almost always won, so I became interested in playing online. I didn’t have a visa-card because I have never had a job, so to make my first deposit I had to borrow a friend´s visa-card.


G: How big is the biggest pot you have won online?
F: The biggest plus-day is 600K U.S dollars stretched over a 24 hours period and the biggest minus-day is 1,4 million.


G: Have you never been afraid of losing everything when you play with so much money at the tables?
F: I have never really bothered me about the money I play with and I believe that it is essential to success at the higher levels.


G: What makes you a winning poker player?
F: My main characteristics are that I am fearless, a fighter and that I am observant.


G: What has been the hardest thing to learn?
F: What has been the hardest for me is to come back from longer breaks. I often feel that I lost a lot of the “auto pilot” that worked just a few weeks earlier. Before, it was standard for me to lose 300k first week after a longer break, but I have become better to avoid it now.


G: You dominated the tables on Crypto Logic Network earlier. Where do you play today?
F: I have had a longer break, but I play every now and then on iPoker and some at Ongame.


G: We've seen you on many live events the recent year, amongst other as chipleader for awhile in the EPT Prague event. Do you have a great passion for live games as well? Are there any more big events to come?
F: I have played 10-15 major events and it always go well at first. However, after a while I get bored, and then I tend to bluff me out, but I have become better at keeping focus. The next live tournament is the Team Poker European Championship in November held in Baden, where Stefan Mattsson, Dennis Bejedal, Joel Lundqvist and I make up Team Matzon and represent Sweden.


G: Finally, what is your advice to new poker players who aspire to become winners in poker?
F: If you want success in online pokern today, I think it is important to have high goals and not to give up. To dare to meet the best and be able to take a step down in level if you get beaten. When I only had played for one year, I sat on the highest tables. Had no real chance in the beginning but I learned a lot and after having worked myself back at lower stakes I was back. and after repeating the process a couple of times I finally emerged victorious.
