1 - WHO ARE YOU? Liam Crawford, 24.


2 - POST A PICTURE OF YOURSELF OR A LINK TO ONE (APAT OR OTHER)



3 - WHERE DO YOU COME FROM? Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.


4 - TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF? Away from the tables... I love sport in general. I play Football, Tennis and Darts, and watch near enough any sport. I support Barrow AFC, who are currently playing in the Blue Square Premier. I love 80"s music, which influenced my username "TheReflex".


5 - WHAT IS YOUR POKER BACKGROUND? I started playing with friends when I was 13, silly structures like 50,000 starting chips with 30 minute blinds! It would take 3 days for a £2 6 max, but I loved it and that"s where I learned to play. Since then, I started playing online when I was 18 and never looked back really. Started off playing $5 heads-up (NLHE) sit and go"s mainly, and the odd MTT. I"ve progressed through the years, and now I am grinding $100 PLO heads up games, and playing big Sunday tournaments every week.


6 - WHAT IS YOUR PLAYING STYLE? I play heads up games like a hyper aggressive lunatic to be fair, but I play MTT"s quite tight and I like to hang around waiting for good spots. I suppose my style differs to what game/structure I"m playing, which should be the case for everyone!

7 - WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE POKER PLAYER AND WHY? Known as "livb112" online, real name is "Olivier Busquet". Online heads up genius, nobody has won more from sit and go"s in the history of online poker. Always used to watch him when I was 18-19.


8 - WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ONLINE POKER SITE AND WHAT IS YOUR POKER ID THERE? Full Tilt - "Liam Crawford"


9 - WHAT ARE YOUR POKER ACHIEVEMENTS? In August 2010 I came 4th/1800+ players in a FTOPS event to win $47,400. That is my biggest win to date, it was an amazing night and I"ll never forget it. My best live achievement was final tabling the ECOAP in Nottingham for £1,500. I haven"t played much live poker and it"s an aim of mine to play loads more in 2013, and try and do something big.


10 - WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE ABOUT LIVE POKER CURRENTLY, THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE? I hate with a passion when there"s an all in, where a player has clearly made a bad call and is dominated, goes on to win the hand, and proceeds to jump around and fist pump etc. If you make a bad call, and get lucky, I feel you should act with a bit more respect for your opponent. Or maybe that"s just me.


11 - HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT APAT? I played in the WCOAP 2011 when a few friends recommended I come for a long poker weekend away. Since then I look out for tournaments and have played the ECOAP and UK Championships.


12 -WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT APAT TOURNAMENTS, STANDARD OF PLAY AND STRUCTURE? The fact that the buy ins are really low in comparison to other well recognised poker tours, with the structures of main events creating 2 day tournaments, means you get really good value for money IMO. Also, in my experience, every trip I"ve had to an APAT series I"ve met new friends each time and everyone is really sociable and up for a laugh. APAT is unique in that way for sure.


13 - HAVE YOU PLAYED AT AN APAT LIVE EVENT AND IF SO, WHAT WAS MOST MEMORABLE ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE? I"ve played 5 APAT tournaments all together, and I"ve had 2 final tables and a day 2. Which leads me to believe I have "APAT run good"! Like I mentioned before, the people have been great and the tournament organisers have been helpful whenever I"ve asked for info etc, so that"s what"s most memorable I guess.


14 - WHAT ARE YOUR MAIN INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF POKER? Football, Darts, Tennis, Cricket... and betting on outcomes on the previous things I mentioned! Hanging out with friends and family is an obvious one too, and having a few drinks now and again.


15 - WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK OR FILM? I don"t watch a lot of films or read a lot, I"m more of a British Sitcom kind of person. I"d say my favourite film is Shawshank Redemption though.


16 - WHAT THREE MUSIC ALBUMS WOULD YOU TAKE TO A DESERT ISLAND WITH YOU? Such a hard task to only choose 3, but here goes: 1) "Listen Like Thieves" - INXS. 2) "Kick" - INXS. 3) "What"s The Story (Morning Glory)" - Oasis.


17 - FINALLY, WHAT MESSAGE WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEAVE FOR YOUR FELLOW APAT MEMBERS? I"m looking forward to playing more APAT events in future, and may the luck be with you! (Unless you"re all in against me!).

Haha, yeah I was just browsing the different sections and thought this would be a good way for people to get to know me before Luton.

Hey, thanks Carey. Yeah, INXS are my favourite band, my dad got me in to them. He"s seen them 5-6 times, gutted I"ll never get to see them though! I"m hoping to see Duran Duran one day, and I think I will be seeing Depeche Mode later on this year.

Cheers Ellen, yeah we had a good time in Luton. Ashley said she had fun meeting you too!
