  7. Since New Jersey first welcomed fully regulated online poker to its borders in November 2013, the player pool has produced prominent talents who have seen their tournament earnings grow over the years. Fred ‘BiggDaddy’ Ferrell has made a new career out of playing online poker in the Garden State and is in the midst of climbing the New Jersey Rankings and sits second only to Jeremy ‘Jermz’ Danger. [caption width="320" align="alignright"] Fred 'BiggDaddy' Ferrell is ranked #3 in New Jersey[/caption] Only a month after online poker became available in New Jersey, Ferrell left his job in a glass-manufacturing warehouse to pursue online poker full-time. Ferrell says he achieved a few quality results that gave him the initial inclination to leave his job and noted that if poker didn’t work out, he felt comfortable being able to find other work if he needed to. “I made good money (at the warehouse) but definitely prefer this luxury,” Ferrell said about his career change. Safe to say, with over $550,000 in earnings to his name, Ferrell will not be looking for alternative employment anytime soon. It takes a lot of confidence and an innate talent to make great decisions in a short time span to leave a job to pursue a full-time poker career, and it is exactly those skills that separate Ferrell from his competitors. When asked what sets him apart from his opponents he is constantly battling against, Ferrell credits his sharp memory and multitasking capability that gives him an edge. Using his 50-inch monitor, Ferrell says he can play “30 tables on autopilot as good as someone who is playing nine tables.” Ferrell says that quick wit and a sharp rapid-fire decision making process are what allow him to make great decisions late in tournaments when he is solely focusing on one or two tables as a result of not succumbing to cognitive burnout. Someone who has that many tables running at once might use a HUD (Heads Up Display) to track a player’s tendencies to help make those fast decisions but Ferrell claims he doesn’t use one. “I don’t really see a need for it since I have a pretty good idea of what people are going to do anyway,” Ferrell said. The competency to ratchet up the focus when it matters most that Ferrell speaks of is backed up on a few occasions with the highlight coming when Ferrell notched two of the largest scores of his career over the course of a single day on WSOP.com in August. Ferrell took home the bronze medal in the “Big Deal” for about $4,900 and then eclipsed that finish with a runner-up effort in the “Ultimate Warrior” for nearly $8,500 more. The ability to move from one task to the next that Ferrell demonstrates allows for him to shake off and absorb the inevitable bad beats and downswings that come with tournament poker. According to Ferrell, “the beats are going to come, [but] eventually the variance is going to work in your favor.” As the end of the year nears, the race for number one on the New Jersey leaderboard is competitive but Ferrell isn’t setting any long-term goals for himself just yet. Despite having a prop bet with Daniel ‘Centerfieldr’ Lupo (currently ranked number three in New Jersey) over who finishes the year higher on the rankings list, Ferrell is more focused on his daily goal of netting at least $300 a day and being able to provide for his three daughters. Despite having a few quality results in live tournaments including a recent cash in September’s Borgata Poker Open WPT Championship, Ferrell doesn’t plan to participate in many more live events before in the near future noting they are “too time consuming.” Ferrell has already qualified for the PokerStars Festival New Jersey Main Event to be held at Resorts in November but says that will likely be the last live event he plays for the rest of this year. With the Borgata Garden State Super Series and the PokerStars NJCOOP currently in full swing, expect to see Ferrell mixing it up in as many events as possible. As Ferrell puts it, “I’m going to grind everyday and crush souls.”
  8. [caption width="641"] Freddy 'BiggDaddy' Ferrell continues to be a force on the NJ online poker scene (WSOP photo)[/caption] In the relatively brief history of New Jersey online poker, only three players can lay claim to tournament winnings in excess of $1 million within the state’s borders. On October 16, Freddy ‘BiggDaddy’ Ferrell became the third member of that club joining Jeremy ‘Jermz’ Danger and Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon. A staple of the NJ community and perennially a part of the New Jersey rankings, Ferrell’s accomplishment is a testament to the hours he has put in to better his game. When online poker first became regulated in New Jersey, Ferrell used online poker as a way to earn supplemental income and recognizes his achievement is one that didn’t happen overnight. “Over time, when the money started flowing in consistently, it was a reality check that I can really better results living. As for the million dollar badge, it just means that I play a high amount of volume of poker and the more time that you put into this game you will have better results,” Ferrell said. Prior to the start of the recently finished NJCOOP series on PokerStarsNJ, Ferrell realized he was about $100,000 short of reaching the seven-figure mark. Ferrell says the milestone was not a major target for him but he is pleased with the manner in which achieved it, even though it meant not winning a tournament that night. “The cash that made me go over the milly mark was the partypokerNJ GSSS Fall '17 #2 - $50,000 GTD NLH High Roller that I came in 2nd which was pretty cool. It would have been sweeter if I got the win, but I am happy with my performance and the result. Every day business now. Now that I reached that goal it is time for bigger and better goals.” Ferrell picked up $8,750 for second place and marked off his 10th top-three finish of the month. He says he didn’t do anything specific to celebrate the achievement and feels blessed to not have to “Wake up miserable like the people who have real jobs and hate what they do.” The game of poker is a profession for Ferrell but he still immensely enjoys the chance to play it as his primary means of a living, which differs from when he first started in 2013. “When I look at poker now I see it as a fun game that you can win a lot of money playing,” Ferrell said. “I do not look at poker the same way as I did a few years ago. I used to want to just make extra money, now I want to make all the money and be happy and get to do what I love every day of my life.” In terms of future players reaching the $1 million mark in New Jersey, Ferrell thinks there will be more who will soon break the barrier, provided they have the patience to put in the necessary hours. With the recent announcement of New Jersey, Delaware, and Nevada agreeing to merge player pools, grinders like Ferrell will have more money to play for in the coming months. Ferrell is not as excited about the prospect as some would expect as he says tougher players will inevitably be in the fields now, but he does look forward to larger guarantees on Sundays. For the next few months, Ferrell will continue to battle against the players in New Jersey and has a clear mindset about where poker stands in his life. “The grind is super real for the time being and poker is life.”
