My favorite time of year

I always look forward to the end of the year. It's a time of year when I dial back my traveling and spend most of my time in the New York City area. It's easy to take a nice little drive up to New England to see the leaves as they change color or to enjoy some snow. The end of the year is also a b...more

Keep it on the up and up

We all play poker because we want to win - pros, beginners, and casual poker players somewhere in between. But if you're at my table, don't even think about trying to shoot an angle. If you want to win a pot at my table, you better win it fair and square. At EPT Barcelona, a player at my table used...more

My sources say "winner!"

Wouldn't it be great if there was a crystal ball that would show you what tournaments you're going to cash in or even win? I think two of my friends might have one, and I'll tell you why. The last couple of years at the World Series of Poker, I started off slowly then got hot at the end. I often put...more

Breaking my own rules

I saved myself a lot of money by winning an EPT Grand Final package on PokerStars in a $500 satellite. However, my play down the stretch in the Main Event ended up costing me even more. Now that I have a little distance and can look back on how I played on Days 4 and 5, I realized that I made two ve...more

The real Victor Ramdin

I'm not a poker player 365 days a year. I also own a chain of retail stores in the Bronx and I tend to them when I'm home in New York City. This year they did extremely well and I'm very happy. Sometimes, to acquire inventory for my stores, I attend auctions and over the holidays I heard about one o...more

Holiday hibernation

Happy holidays, everyone. It's kind of a quiet period for me poker-wise -- I'm "hibernating," you might say. I'm playing online some and am really looking forward to the PCA in January, but right now I have a few other things on my plate. People know I work a lot with the outreach program Guyana ...more

Science, charity, and water polo

Can you believe I didn't win the Main Event again? If you can believe it, I didn't even make the final nine. Sorry! I know it hasn't aired on TV yet. I'm always bad at giving away spoilers. Another World Series of Poker has come to a close. Once again, I ended up only slightly on the winning side...more

A bracelet (in my underwear) for Basebaldy?

What's up, everyone! First of all. sorry. This blog post is long overdue, and it's because I was simply too busy. What dream was I chasing? Not the one where I play the WSOP Main Event in my underwear. I'm going to live that one out in July. No, I was out chasing an EPT Championship. SPOILER ALER...more

Busy end to the year - and Happy Holidays!

This is always the busiest time of year. Everyone's always trying to squeeze in one last event whether it be a party, or a poker tournament before the end of the year, and it gets pretty exhausting. This year's exhaustion for me started in Wichita, Kansas. It was a charity even hosted by this year...more

Seasons change and so do I, by Victor Ramdin

by Victor Ramdin I was really looking forward to the month of September. You've got the WCOOP on PokerStars, and things usually tend to finally cool off just a bit here in New York City. I was all set to take all the things I had learned about online poker this year, and apply them to the WCOOP, wh...more
