      As part of our partnership with Spin & Go staking site SpinLegends we have another exclusive opportunity for our readers to ask their founder anything.

      As you can see from our interview earlier this month, Alvaro "spin4play" Romero is one of the best Spin & Go players in the world as well as a prop bet legend.

      On February 22 at 21:00 CET he will be live on our Twitch channel with host CollinMoshman. Alvaro will be playing some live Spin & Go's and talking strategy with Collin, as well as answering your questions.

      You can start asking them right now in this dedicated AMA thread. Alvaro will be choosing the questions so there is no guarantee yours will be picked, but the sooner you ask the more chance you have of getting it answered.

      Suggested topics could include:

      *Spin & Go strategy
      *His 20,000 Spin & Go prop bet where he won $100,000
      *The injuries he sustained during the prop bet
      *Why he started SpinLegends
      *How to be profitable at Spins even without big multipliers
      *Why should you get staked at SpinLegends?
      *How to grind Spins for long sessions
      *Anything else that you want to ask

      You have until midnight on February 21 to get your questions in, so hurry up as this is a rare opportunity.

      Also when you get a big multiplier, do you move all the lesser tables to one side and concentrate on that, or play it like any other game?

      What advice would you give to someone asking how to invest their poker winnings (bigger amounts)? What sort of investments would you recommend?

      Is there an equal development in skills from players when climbing the limits, or could you group them in a few groups, like micro, medium, high, top or so. Are there skills jumps?

      F.i. when starting playing spinners with a bit larger bankroll (like for a $3 or $7 buy-in), would you still advice to start on the lowest level, or a little higher because skills are about the same until a certain level, like $3 or so, and starting a little higher would simply increase your eventual winnings?

      How long takes to realize contract/deal/agreement?
      Do you have deals with time restrictions (e.g. from now to 20th february 2019) or volume (e.g. 50k spins)?
      Regards

      Another amazing player being interviewed by Mosh! Thank you Poker Strategy!

      I have dozen questions for Ramiro, will try to keep it to 7 only:

      1) Does he offer private 1 on 1 or group coaching and if so what are the rates? Any discounts for more sessions?
      2) Would he be willing to SELL me his HH from when he played 20k games challenge? (feel by going through his HHs I can learn a lot about his strategy obviously).
      3) Does he do deals outside of Spin Legends or only through the stable?
      4) What is his SB defend strategy vs BTN 3way? Does he have CC range on 100s or uses CG type of approach (3 betting, entering pre flop as aggressor and then extending calls to 4 bets?)
      5) What is his BB strategy vs BTN both when SB folds and 3 way? Does he defend close or ATC? Does he use merged 3 bet range on 100s? How does his VPIP change as stacks get shallower? (25bb, 20bb, 16bb, 12bb, 8bb, 5bb for example?)
      6) What is his BB strategy in HU facing 3x on 100s for different stack sizes? How much does he CC vs 3bnai vs 3bs in general vs such opponents for 25, 18, 15, 12, 9bb or less?
      7) How many tables is he playing now? Is his red line positive or break even with such high table count? What advice would he give for someone willing to push themselves that way and to maximize hourly?

      Thank you in advance for asking even 1 of these questions and all the best to Alvaro and Collin (thanks once again for making it happen for us!)

      As a follow-up to Marta's question: what skills are necessary for a rich person in order to get any longterm profit from running a poker stable in the current market? How many %s of the success of a stable come from correct screening of applicants and stakees, how many - from correct marketing, and how many - from correct socialisation with the stakees?

      Which advices would you give an absolute beginner? What literature would you recommend? What is the best way to get started with those Spin n Goes?

      (Is it okay to ask beginners-questions, by the way?)

      What methods for urging oneself to start a new session (for warming up in particular) and for staying sane when playing hundreds of spins a day would you recommend to someone who is extremely asocial?
