PokerStars Blog profile: Rick Dacey
PokerStars Corporate Writer (formerly Blog and Content Writer)
Rick Dacey has been a regular face on the PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) and UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) reporting the sights, sounds and action of the poker world back to readers of the PokerStarsBlog.com.
An enthusiastic player himself, Dacey came to the game after leaving conventional journalism to become deputy editor of UK magazine PokerPlayer and holds the dubious honour of becoming the first 'World Champion of Online Amateur Poker' after beating a 148-man field on PokerStars way back in 2007. Thankfully he decided to focus on honing his written skills and continues to interview the biggest names at the largest tournaments on behalf of PokerStars.
