      There is a guy on fixed limit micro that shows up in red on the display called "Kenny Tran".

      Is he some sort of house player ?

      I don't think that a pro would play for nickels and dimes in fixed limit unless he got paid from full tilt.

      Kenny is a red pro, FTP pros get 100% rakeback and an hourly wage.

      rumour has it his wife plays the micros on his account tho

      Some time ago Chris Ferguson went in for a hunt from absolute zero to 15K for charity.
      I think that task took his tight ass 8 months or so to finish it.
      Absolutely amazing.
      Yeah,if you go around the tables you'll find a "red" (lol) person playing either fun money or very low stakes.
      By the way good luck with that,the waiting list for that table is around 60 players minimum.

      This explains why there are usually people on the waiting list for his table - you can learn from watching him play (if he takes the 5 / 10 cents fixed limit game seriously).

      Sorry that I haven't checked in on my question for some time, but I have not had time for poker and poker related things for a couple of weeks. (I suppose that means that I'm not hooked on poker yet.)

      Definately.

      Many of the red pros suck, I play NL100 FR rush and the pros at this limit play 9/7 and 9/5 styles....luckily they get rake back and $35/hr.

      I also played with Morris Chestnut the other day who also sucks, however, he was in Boyz n the hood so gets my respect.
