Border test: Are you better than Phil Ivey?

I went on a cool road trip with one of my best friends from Holland. He came to visit me in Toronto, and the two of us took a trip into the U.S. to visit various places. It was a lot of fun, both to see new places and meet new people, and also in some cases to see how people responded to us, too. ...more

The best distraction

Another WCOOP Challenge Series finished up at the end of March, and it occurred to me that I hadn't shared my story from the last one. The day before it started I had surgery for a hernia and unfortunately had some post-op complications with bleeding. Many of you many not know, but I'm a surgeon mys...more

Shifting sights on Supernova Elite

I am writing just as my girlfriend and I are about to go wall climbing. I think I was 12 years old the last time I went wall climbing! Last time I was talking about a plan possibly to go for Supernova Elite this year. I'm still considering it, but my recent move to London and other factors have k...more

Czech? Raise!

It has been a while since I've posted, so I wanted to catch up some with what I've been up to lately... and with what I am looking forward to in the coming months.

Hitting the road looking for gold

The Winter Olympics recently finished up in Sochi, which as you can imagine kind of took over life here in Russia for a good while. It was really amazing -- the first Olympic games I've been able to experience. Russia is kind of a strange country, at least in the way people from other countries ...more

Playing under the sword of Damocles

I began this year thinking about the possibility of going for Supernova Elite, with me and my brother, Matthias, challenging each other. It's proven quite a test, and in fact I've already learned a lot about myself and my game just by making the attempt. I started off the year pretty fast, althoug...more

Sensory deprivation turns to appreciation

I've had some interesting experiences lately, involving sensory overload and sensory deprivation, which has been an interesting and enlightening contrast. The year started off promising with a decent run in the PCA and Aussie Millions Main Events. At Aussie Millions, I had been doing really well o...more

A case for freezeouts

I've just returned to Europe after a trip to California. I used to spend almost four months a year in the United States, but aside from the World Series of Poker, I don't get the chance to come to the U.S. very often anymore. For the last five years in a row I've played the World Poker Tour event in...more

Coach Jason "No Tilt" Mercier

The year has gotten off to a good start for me. I've played 12 live tournaments so far in 2014 and cashed six of them, including cashing the first three Main Events I played. Today I'm in the final 19 of the WPT event in Jacksonville, Florida and hoping to make the final table. It has been a nice...more
