London beacon: Nick Wealthall

You can breath a sigh of relief; the summer is finally over. All that sunshine, hot weather is gone and at last all that pressure to be outside and 'enjoy the weather' is over. At last the nights are drawing in, it's getting colder and more miserable and we can all get back to what's really importan...more

UKIPT is science fiction, but the real kind

A couple of years ago some thrusting young executives came to me and said, 'Nick we're starting a new UK and Ireland poker tour and we want you on board as the host.' I said, 'congratulations you've made an excellent choice - a no-brainer - but a new tour is just the stuff of science fiction it cou...more

Bubblin' in Dublin

Okay I didn't bubble at UKIPT Dublin but someone did and I figured the catchy headline would make that person feel better. UKIPT Dublin Season 2 is in the bag and with it the last regional stop on tour with the big London EPT finale to come in October. For a long time Dublin Season 2 had a lot of d...more

Spending August with unicycles and bagpipes

I've spent the last week in Edinburgh, one of my favourite places. The last couple of days I've been working on the UKIPT up here. Before that I was working on a new project, a live online chat show from the festival with comics as guests called Festival Frank. It's been pretty cool and I've been ch...more

Brighton rocked, Brad Pitt didn't

Luckily there's more poker than you can shake a stick (of rock) at. Again the numbers for the main event on the PokerStars UKIPT tour were great with Brighton getting over 600 runners. One of them was me, but this time I didn't survive day 1. The first few levels involved my patented running into h...more

Bit chomped to a nub, I finally get to play

Thought I'd blog about playing the Newcastle UKIPT ...for your pleasure. As the event isn't part of our TV coverage I finally got to play a UKIPT after a couple of years chomping at the bit covering them. You can watch my video diary of playing the event here if you prefer me in visual format (god ...more

The Roller Coaster

Had an awesome month in May, working every single day and now enjoying a quieter time in June. I say working but it didn't feel like that. Most days I was broadcasting including a lot of live stuff like this. Live TV (I know this was a web show- but there's less and less difference) is like being...more

Now I really am a Twit

I like to be ahead of the curve where technology and trends are concerned, and as such I've signed up for Twitter. It's an interesting social media application that may or may not catch on, but I like to be on the cutting edge of things so I'm giving it a go. Apparently I'm the 277,667,323rd person ...more

Spring, betting on the royals, and maybe a bank heist

Spring is here. The clocks have changed. Daffodils have sprung and everyone's juice is up. I'm going to dedicate my spring and summer to finding ways not to be in these dismally cloudy isles for next winter. It's been a slog! I'm hoping I won't need to resort to a huge one off bank job pre-escaping...more

We're going to need a bigger boat

So it turns out I can't get a little bit pregnant. I seem to be incapable of having a passing interest in anything. I'm binary. I'm bi-winning (by the way the Charlie Sheen melt down is the best news story of the last 10 years). If I like something I can't just read the odd article about it or wat...more
