On Hellmuth, Stoney, shootouts and Main Events

I recently got back home to Belgium after spending most of the last month in Las Vegas at the World Series of Poker. My original plan this year was just to be at the WSOP for a couple of weeks, but I was again bitten by the Vegas bug and ended up staying longer, getting there in early June and only...more

It's over already?

My World Series of Poker is over. It seemed to go by quickly, but that's partly because I was late getting there this time.I was writing before about how I had some trouble with a stolen bag and a lost passport back in May, which delayed me getting to the WSOP. Actually that turned out not to be s...more

There's only so much time for relaxing

I've been spending time with family this summer. It's always nice here in the Czech Republic during these months, and I've liked relaxing while we wait for the birth of our new daughter, due about six weeks from now. I have gone fishing some, a favorite hobby of mine.Of course, we can't relax too ...more

On playing to win

The World Series of Poker went fairly well for me. I played a well-paced schedule of tournaments, staying away from the cash games, and ended up cashing in three different events. My best finish was in the 10-game mixed event where I ended up 19th. I have certainly done better before at the WSOP,...more

The second time around

I'm not sure any other win will ever top my experience in the 2009 Main Event, but taking down my second World Series of Poker bracelet this summer comes pretty close. I had a second-place finish in 2012 and two fourths last year, and it feels really good to notch another win. It was also exciting t...more

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
