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

Better late than never

I was recently in Macau to play the Asia Championship of Poker. 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. The way it works in Hon...more

How smart are you...emotionally?

As poker players we're always trying to improve our "mental games." There are lots of ways to work on that side of things that don't necessarily have to happen at the tables. For example, I just completed a very interesting course concerning emotional intelligence that I think was very beneficial ...more
