Can Anyone Knock Him Out?

Dimitri Holdeew

I've observed Dimitri Holdeew play 40 levels of poker this week and he's yet to have been busted from a tournament. He won the Eureka Poker Tour Main Event on Thursday and then started playing the Main Event on Friday. He's still in and currently has 150,000. Holdeew was deep in conversation with Dominik Nitsche about mix-max tournaments and reverse mix-max tournaments.

In a mix-max play starts nine handed, then at some point goes six (or four) handed and then the last eight or sixteen play heads-up and the reverse mix-max works the other way. Both players said their preference was for reverse mix-max, but for different reasons. Nitsche said, "I prefer reverse mix-max because then the final table plays out like a normal tournament and there's pay jumps and ICM considerations."
