Norwegian family reunion

Here's something you might not know about Norway. While we are free to play online poker, live poker is actually illegal. Despite this hurdle, we still organize one of the best live tournament series in Europe--the Norwegian Championship. For me, it's the most fun week of poker in the entire year. ...more

Poker: often easier than real life

I made it to Las Vegas for the WSOP this year, but it took a while. I've been spending time lately working out my living situation. My wife and I decided some time ago to move from Russia to Riga, Latvia for her business, and so we've been dealing with working out details related to that and also a...more

WSOP wrap-up and Bellagio score

I had a really good start to the World Series this year. I finished ninth in the $10,000 Deuce-to-Seven triple draw event, cashed the $1,500 NLHE six-max, and came very close to winning my third WSOP bracelet in the $10,000 no-limit Deuce-to-Seven single draw. That event was a little disappointing f...more

Living in Chad Brown's orbit

Chad Brown traveled the world. Country to country, continent to continent, he put his bags down in more places than most people can name. Regardless, no matter where he went, he was always looking for an opportunity to look up. If there was a planetarium near by, that's where Brown spent his time. T...more

Celebrating Danzer, mourning Strassmann

After spending about three-and-a-half weeks on a family vacation in Sweden, I only made it to the WSOP at the very end this time -- just for the last of the preliminary events and the Main Event. It was an amazingly relaxing time off and it was good to take a break from poker.Poker was still on my ...more

Friends to host Chad Brown Memorial and charity tournament

No matter who you speak to, it's impossible to find anyone to say a bad word about Chad Brown. When the poker community lost Chad to cancer last week, the flood of memories online and in casinos around the world was enormous. Everyone was looking for a way to express just how they feel.Today, Chad's...more

Live poker in Denmark

More and more I find myself talking about "the good old days." I try not to, as legends such as Villy Betjent, Momme, Blomsten, Laurinen, Krølle Jens, Hans med Øret, etc. did that constantly back around 1999 when I started off. Not that there's anything wrong with them doing it, because, by the Devi...more

Too many tears for a poker face

I'm here at the WSOP playing a lot of events while I'm following Brazil in the World Cup. I'm not doing so well so far in the Series, and so really it's much better right now to talk about how Brazil is doing.I've played 14 events so far, including three $10K events (H.O.R.S.E., razz, limit hold'em...more
