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

No place for jealousy

Like some of you, I'm lucky to be surrounded by a group of close friends who are also really good poker players. A lot of us started out together and over the years we've helped each other learn and grow as professionals. Right now, some of my friends are on the sickest heaters of their lives, but a...more

The Moneymaker Effect...effect?

It's a quiet time for me right now, poker-wise. I've been in Toronto lately, playing on PokerStars and kind of biding my time until things start getting busy again.

Mind Control

I'm one of four "Mind Control Freaks" as we call them (my nickname is "The Charmer") and we put people through different experiments to illustrate various psychological phenomena. From th...more

Once in a lifetime

The LAPT Brazil was a fantastic event. I had never experienced a tournament like this in Latin America and it broke the records for most entries and largest prize pool ever on the LAPT. It's incredible to see poker growing and thriving in a country as huge as Brazil--nowhere else in Latin America ca...more

Love the process

Recently I had the opportunity to return to my first passion, field hockey, as a television analyst for the Hockey World Cup. This year's tournament took place in The Hague and I did live commentary on the women's matches. It was really fun to reconnect with my old teammates and friends in the hocke...more

Fulfilling the higher calling

I've been playing poker for a long time and thankfully, I've been reasonably successful doing so. With that came a wealth of amazing opportunities the game has given me, from travel to experiences to meeting heroes from many industries. But at the same time I've become increasingly aware of a grow...more
