    Well, a Christadelphian anyway.

    He always seemed Christian to me.

    In any case I don't see a problem with following poker even if you don't gamble (for religious or other reasons). I follow poker and I don't gamble.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Christadelphians are Christians in the broad sense but differ on a of number of fundamental issues with conventional Christianity. Issues like nature of the soul, relationship between God and Christ, beliefs regarding heaven and hell, etc.

    Apparrently Hellmuth was talking up James' skills at the table (quite unusual for him, since he normally trash talks young online pros). Not sure if this is a good thing for James or not :-D
