Doing things differently in 2014

It's another year, and looking ahead the schedule for me looks a lot like what it has been in past years. However, there are a few things I'm looking forward to doing a little differently in 2014. The last few months of 2013 weren't that great for me in terms...more

On to the next one

I wish I could tell you that I went to the Bahamas and won the first tournament I entered. Unfortunately, my return to poker after a two month absence didn't go as perfectly as I dreamed. Despite not cashing in the Super High Roller or High Roller events, I was...more

Another lesson from Dad

A lot of people probably remember seeing my Dad on ESPN's coverage of the 2003 WSOP and so know that we're pretty tight. People ask me about him all the time, thanks to those shows. Unfortunately he's been dealing with some health issues for the last three years or so...more

My own private PCA

I'm just coming off my first ever PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. It was a great experience overall, and a fun way to kick off the new year. I'm not really a huge Christmas person -- not that I dislike it, I just don't get as excited about it as some people...more

Twin on twin: The Supernova Elite challenge

It's a new year, and my brother Matthias and I have decided for 2014 to challenge each other and both go for Supernova Elite on PokerStars. We're really going to have to put the pedal to the metal and put in a lot of hours online -- a lot more...more

The second-best thing in life

People know I'm not much of a whiner when I get knocked out of a tournament or take a bad beat in a given hand. I've always joked about how the last time I ever complained about losing was when I was 17 years old. I lost a pot and...more

My goals for 2014

I'm not necessarily one for New Year's "resolutions." People tend to make grand declarations with good intentions and then fall off the wagon by February 1, and I want to avoid that trap. Setting goals, however, seems different to me somehow; less absolute. I can go into the year, reflect...more
