Final Table Interview: Jonathan Little

Jonathan Little

Jonathan Little is a published book author and two-time World Poker Tour champion. He has one World Series of Poker final table on his list of successes. Currently sitting fourth in chips at the final table of the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed event, Little is hoping to run it to the end to score his first WSOP bracelet of his career.

During the break, PokerNews' Pamela Maldonado chatted with Little to try to get some insight to his strategy for the rest of the tournament.

Being a No-Limit Hold'em tournament book author, do you think having an analytical mind of the game deters you from playing with a strong intuition?

No not at all. I think some people naturally have a lot of it and some people don't and I probably don't but I've played a lot of poker that I have at least some. At this final table I could have bluffed twice on the river but didn't so obviously my intuition isn't the strongest.

So you're sitting fourth in chips. Is aggression important for you even more so at this point, or are you now just hoping for some run good?

I have been playing extraordinarily aggressive and the other players have been catching me so now I'll probably have to sit back and wait to catch cards at this point. Now that I have 30 big blinds I can just wait for good cards hopefully. It is four-handed though, so you definitely have to try to steal here and there.

What advantages do you think you have going for you right now?

I have no advantages. Actually, the other three players are really, really good. If I had a tenth of the chips then I am probably 1-in-10 to win at this point because were all equally good.

Both players tapped the table, and the   completed the board on the river. The man they call "E-Dog" fired 125,000 at Drinan, who deliberated for a minute before calling. Lindgren rolled over the    for top pair, and that was good enough for the win.
