PCA Stories That Won't be in the Brochure

This is the time of year when a PokerStars rep emails me and asks me to provide memories from previous PokerStars Caribbean Adventures. Of course, what they really mean is they want me to provide something positive to put in their brochure or up on the wall at the Atlantis, the kind of thing that wi...more

Visiting the next home of poker

After the traditional EPT London, I was lucky enough to be able to go to Macau this year again, for the Asian Championship of Poker Series (ACOP). The ACOP is the biggest annual tournament Series in Macau. Macau is certainly the gambling capital of the world, and even if poker isn't as big as in Las...more

Sisters of the Dog

The end of the year is approaching quickly, and among the many things I'm looking forward to is getting a chance to spend time with my younger sister. She told me recently how she's saved up money to come see me during the holidays, and I can't express how happy I am that she is.My sister is quite ...more

The Ebola Poker Scare

Recently, I was playing poker at the Commerce Casino and heard a player tell a dealer he would send her to Africa so she can get Ebola. Without skipping a beat, she replied, "When I come back, I'll give you a big wet kiss!" When I tweeted that story, it was supposed to be humorous, but someone repli...more

There's a first (and last) time for everything

I have not been playing much poker over the last six or seven weeks, I have to report -- not since EPT Barcelona, really. One big reason why is I became a father (again) about five weeks ago to a baby boy. Some of that time I spent keeping close tabs on George Danzer and his triumph down under at t...more

Waiting for my spots...and the tax man

I'm writing after getting back from EPT London, where I did relatively well. I had really been looking forward to that trip. I love London and had an idea I'd hang out a lot, play a lot of cash games, and go to some football matches as well. But I ended up playing in tournaments about 12 hours a ...more

Is Poker a selfish game? Not always.

The end of the year is drawing near, that time when people start to think about the holidays and also giving to charity. Not coincidentally, there are several different charity poker tournaments happening these days, and it just so happens I'm writing in the middle of some of them.The first was the...more

Living alone on the road

I recently got back from LAPT Peru, the last stop of Season 7 of the Latin American Poker Tour. This time I did things a little differently for my trip to Lima. Instead of staying in the nearby hotel, I rented an apartment where I stayed by myself. It was fun not to be eating room service all of ...more
