The long and winding road

I'm writing this just after returning from LAPT Panama. In fact, I've been traveling a lot lately, including a trip to EPT Barcelona as well as another to a PokerStars gathering in Costa Rica where there was a staff tournament, a freeroll for all of the employees. I actually ended up winning the to...more

Overtaxed and recovering post-WSOP

It's been a fun poker-filled summer. Looking back I can say I've been playing a lot of different kinds of poker -- live and online, tourneys and cash games, lower buy-in events and higher ones, and in different places, too. I am writing a few weeks after the conclusion of the WSOP, and like most...more

My mom, my girlfriend, and Mexico

Not too long ago, my girlfriend Lynn and I spent a couple of weeks visiting my home country, Mexico. The original idea was for us to go to Playa del Carmen, where we were going to say with some friends.

The things I used to do didn't work anym...more

In January I split my time between the Bahamas for the PCA and Australia for the Aussie Millions. That was my fourth trip to Melbourne. Each time I'm...more

It's not often that I travel without thinking about poker. Maybe I'll go see some tourist attraction or go out for dinner or for drinks or whatever else people do when they travel, but at some point during the day I'm going to grab my computer and play a bit of online poker. I bet a lot of poker pla...more

A postcard from Playa

Hello from New York City! I just left Playa del Carmen, Mexico with my girlfriend, Lynn. Both of us needed to relax and chill for a bit since we spent so much time traveling over the last year. I decided to skip EPT Prague and stay here for a few weeks to recharge because next year's schedule is go...more

Traveling and love

At the beginning of this year I decided I was going to travel more to play live tournaments, I´m really aiming to add some titles and big wins to my poker career. I've had some nice results along the way including a runner-up at LAPT Punta del Este back in May and a LAPT Medellin High Roller win, so...more
