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.

Better late than never

I wanted to share a story of someone I talked to on my way over -- a kind of inspiring story, I thought.Before getting to Macau I had to stop in Hong Kong to do some business, and while I was there I took a cab.

How smart are you...emotionally?

For example, I just completed a very interesting course concerning emotional intelligence that I think was very beneficial ...more

Living the live life & working on my brain

I've been playing a lot of live poker over the last few weeks. It was nice to be on the road again, and even nicer to pick up some good results.The first stop was at the UKIPT Isle of Man. I finished second in the Main Event there a year ago, so I was pretty pumped to go back there again. It's al...more
