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 of results after having started out th...more

November Nine stress

It was a different experience for me to be the guy on the rail at the November Nine cheering for my friend Marc-Etienne McLaughlin, instead of the guy playing whose friends were cheering for him. It was a lot of fun to be the spectator but I have to say it was a lot more stressful than being the one...more

Once more for Montreal at the November Nine?

I spent a lot of time in Montreal before heading back over to Europe for the recent EPT and WSOP-E tourneys. In Montreal, it seems like poker is getting bigger and bigger. There was the big Full Tilt Poker Montreal event that played out here earlier this month that turned out to be a big success. ...more

Summer memories in autumn

As we kick off the first week of autumn, I'm thinking back to what a great summer I had. I didn't win a WSOP bracelet, but it was a good summer for me with several cashes and a big highlight making the final table of the $50K Poker Players Championship. As I was writing about a couple of posts ag...more

Smell the roses

The beginning of the summer was incredibly busy. I went to Vegas at the start of the World Series of Poker to drop off my luggage, my golf clubs, and my other stuff. I played four events, and I cashed one just before leaving for the GuangDong Ltd. Asia Millions in Macau. It's definitely not easy t...more

Ready for SCOOP

I am back now from the World Series of Poker Asia Pacific. Poker went well for me there, highlighted by a final table in the first event (the "accumulator") where I finished fourth. It was a lot of fun being in Australia, too, where it was my first time ever visiting. My plan now is to rest for a...more

I'm back on the road as usual, traveling all over for poker. Among the places I have visited already this year was Deauville, France where the EPT stopped in February. I always like playing in France both because of the people and because I'm Francophone, too. My accent is different, of course,...more

Why am I smiling? One word: hockey.

Hockey is back! Hockey is back! Can you tell I'm excited about hockey coming back? A lot of people know I'm a huge Montreal Canadiens fan, and thus like a lot of other NHL fans I'm thrilled that the lockout has been resolved and the season is finally underway. It's the winter time. It's cold in...more

Calm before the storm

I spent so much of the fall traveling through Europe for tournaments, that I guess you could say I'm on a semi-vacation right now. I thought about flying over to Macau for the APPT event, but decided to stay in Montreal instead and spend a few weeks at home before EPT Prague. This weekend I spent an...more

Victory Lap Part 1

I have recently been asked to write a column on how life can change, when you become the world champion of poker. I know firsthand that it changes many things! Sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst. In this blog, which I will split in three parts, I'll try to show you how this can chang...more
