Hanging out at the NHL Alumni Charity Shootout

It was a quiet end of the summer for me before I headed to EPT Barcelona. I relaxed, played a little golf, and met up with some people I hadn't seen for a while. The only real poker I played -- since the end of the WSOP, anyway -- was a charity tournament hosted by PokerStars, the NHL Alumni Chari...more

Back in the saddle

Before heading over to EPT Barcelona in August, I went on holiday, and in fact I tried something different this time. For the first time ever I took part in a cycling race. I love all sports. I have a very competitive nature, which helps me a lot in poker, and I always love finding new sports to p...more

When it comes to competition, poker is never far away

It's summertime and with the good weather I've been playing a lot of tennis lately. In Holland you can register for weekly tournaments -- singles, doubles, or mixed -- in which you can play and improve your ranking from week to week. It's a great way to stay active, both physically and mentally.I'...more

Black kings of death

Like a lot of people at the end of the summer, I'm taking a little break after the World Series of Poker.The WSOP was par for me this year. I had a very, very bad start, going 0-for-12 in tournaments without cashing. But on my second trip I cashed 3 out of 5 events -- no super deep runs or anythin...more

How to make...something...of yourself

As some of you might have read in the previous blog, I decided to break the WSOP in two. First I went over there for the first two weeks, then back for three weeks to Denmark only to fly over there for the Main Event in the end. To make it short. That's how you roll when you have kids. But it worked...more

An autumn with Bruno and the dogs

There's not too much going on right now for me. Since the WSOP I played LAPT Panama. At the moment I'm excited about my friend Bruno Politano, who is part of this year's November Nine. He's the first Brazilian player ever to make it to the final table of the WSOP Main Event. Bruno Kawauti made i...more

Home away from home

Poker has always given me the opportunity of travelling a lot, and often I found my home on a plane, in a hotel, or on a train. Up to now I had never been so far from Italy for so long as I have been in recent months. Most part of this latest period I was heart-and-soul-devoted to an ambitious proje...more

Renovating and filling houses

I have been renovating an old house in Tuscany, which has been an ongoing project. Right now I've been focused on the reality television show with which I participated earlier this year, "La Casa degli Assi," which is now airing on Italian television.I wrote a little about the show in my last post,...more

Scared Money vs Fearless Money

I've been thinking a lot recently about differences between standard side events with lower buy-ins and "high roller" events, in particular how players often have trouble transitioning from one to the other. This difficulty highlights some interesting ideas about how money affects people when they ...more

The perils of perfectionist poker

I'm back home from the World Series. I didn't play as much as I have in past years, only going for two weeks. It was not a very good trip, poker-wise, I have to report. It's always a little annoying when you go to Vegas and things don't go that well, because whenever you go to the WSOP you can't ...more
