Winning Back to Back Titles
Winning a 'The League' Masters title is an achievement in itself, but winning two back-to-back titles is a very rare occurrence. Yet this is exactly what 'HomSet' did after clinching the February title after already claiming the inaugural Masters crown in January. We previously interviewed him about his first win, and you can read that story here, now we catch up with him for the sequel.

PokerStars School: You've now won back-to-back monthly leagues, how does this make you feel?
HomSet:
It feels great even though I know there was a lot of luck involved in
both my wins.
 

Homset had over 35 points to spare at the end of the month.

PokerStars School: What were the highs & lows of the February League?
HomSet:
The highs would have to be the 5 final tables I made last month and I can't say there were really any lows. In February I changed my overall approach for the League by mostly registering at the start of tournaments rather than at the end of late registration. I definitely think that approach is better for me and contributed to my win last month since I have more experience with deep stacks than with short stacks because of my cash game background.

PokerStars School: Are the extra tournament dollars a good boost to your poker bankroll? Have you a plan for what tournaments you will use these T$ for?
HomSet:
I'll start using the T$ I won to play turbo MTTs with buy-ins below 10$. I would like to progress to higher buy-ins eventually but I need to work on my MTT game first as I don't think I have any sort of edge on those fields right now.

PokerStars School: What're your ambitions for this month's league, do you think you can make it 3 out of 3?
HomSet:
I'm busy with stuff outside of poker this month so I won't be playing the League in March. Hopefully, I'll be able to come back in May or June and I'll be aiming for a top 5 finish on the leaderboard then.
 

Consistent results helped Homeset claim yet another title.

PokerStars School: Do you see a lot of familiar faces at the League tables? Do you want to give a shout out to any notable players you have met?
HomSet:
The field for the Masters League is quite small so I frequently get to share tables with friendly and familiar faces like Garfield52, EasyChips4U, edpokernut, effsea, Grade b and iceman/money among others. I especially want to give edpokernut a shout out for his insightful analysis of the League results on the forums.

PokerStars School: How much time do you play and how much time do you spend studying poker?
HomSet:
On average I play poker about 10 hours a week. I probably spend 2 or 3 hours a week studying poker off the tables. Right now I'm concentrating on improving my play in cash games.

PokerStars School: What's the most useful poker strategy article you have found at PokerStars School?
HomSet:
I enjoyed the sequence on Omaha Hi-Lo. It was a great introduction to the game for me.

PokerStars School: Do you still see yourself playing poker in 10 years time?
HomSet:
Yes, I certainly hope so!
