Default Anyone here ever played with Michael Grazc live (or online)?

I'm just curious on people's impressions of him.


ESPN has obviously made him out to be sort of a lucksack and well, you can only gain so much info from a WPT 6-handed limit final.


thanks
John

I have in a live game here in NC. I would say right now that he's probably one of the top 20 tournament players in the world.

I would say one of his best attributes is being able to snuff out bluffs. He makes some incredible calls with only high card.

Played with himin a 200+16 sitngo on FTP once and he was extrmly solid. Didnt play many hands, but was extrmly aggresive when he did. Like wetleg said, very difficult to pull a bluff off on him, or make any sort of play (example raise in position with straight draw to try to buy a turn, ya, that did not work, haha)
Very solid player, and some of those calls on the WSOP were pretty insane, I know shaniac didnt like em....but still

I played with Mike at Borgata in the fall. He was at my table for a good 5-6 hours. Great kid and a very good player. He has plenty of gears and a great feel for the pace of the table. Thinking of Mike as a luckbox in my opinion is quite a disservice.

I don't think ESPN made him out to be anything other than a very good player, how did he appear to be a luckbox?

That call Gracz made with dueces was so nuts. I really like him.

I played with him in the $1,500 five diamond tournament at the Bellagaio... I was at the same table as him several times but never for very long. He didn't seem to be particularly aggressive to me (as some other people have mentioned) but he was sitting on a short-to-medium stack most of the time, so that probably explains that. He was definitely a solid player. I didn't see anything out of line from him.

I think going into the final table I was the short stack and he was either 2nd or 3rd short stack... I went out 9th and he went out 7th... I assume the same way as I did, pushing preflop HOH style and running into a better hand, but I didn't actually stick around to see.
