How I won WSOP Player of the Year

What a great fight! And I'm still coming to grips with the fact that I came out on top! After such a great summer at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, it's hard to describe how happy I am that things went well at the WSOP Asia-Pacific in Melbourne and I managed to win the WSOP Player of the Y...more

Player of the Year races to be won down under

September is nearly done and with it the WCOOP. I went to Vienna to play the series with a friend, which was nice because I wasn't alone grinding the whole time. Now I'm looking ahead to the World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific, which gets going early in October and will last for two-and-a-half week...more

Island Time

I decided to head to the Caribbean a little early this year. Right before the PCA my girlfriend and I spent a week on a small island in the Bahamas. Instead of staying at a resort, we rented a little house and lived the island life. This particular island was about 170 km long, but less than 1 km wi...more

What happens in Barcelona...

Every year I take a trip to Portugal to visit my family. We moved there when I was four, and my parents still own a little house outside Lisbon. The house has a vineyard and this time, we made some wine. We used to have maybe 10,000 liters of wine, but now only a very small portion is left. However,...more

Luck of the Mohawk

Forget about the thousands of hours I've put in grinding, training, and studying to improve my game. It doesn't help. It turns out that style is what really counts, as my lucky Mohawk propelled me to a fifth-place finish in the WSOP $50,000 Player's Championship. This was my third year playing the $...more

The secret of my success

When I wrote my previous blog, I was enjoying my last day off before an intense three-month grind. It started off with two EPT events- Berlin and Monte Carlo- where I did really bad and didn't cash any events. SCOOP, however, was still on the horizon and as you know by now, it was a very successful ...more

A taste for wine

My new apartment in Salzburg has come together so well. My girlfriend and I have finally finished with the decorating and she is very happy with it. I just assembled the last piece of furniture, our couch. I've also managed to entirely replenish my wine refrigerator. We decided to empty it out befo...more

Rolling up a stake, going to Vegas

Moving house is always a tremendous amount of work, but this time, it's worth it. My girlfriend and I have been settling into our new apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It's a beautiful city and I love our neighborhood. It's lovely to walk around and full of restaurants we enjoy. Also, it's only an hou...more

Homebrew heaven

Over the last month I've been playing the high-stakes mixed games on PokerStars. After many months of not finding anyone playing above $50/$100 in the 2-7 section, the action came back all of a sudden. Games at the $500/$1,000 and $1,000/$2,000 level are coming together regularly and I'm happy I ca...more

EPT Berlin: The big one (for me)

EPT Berlin. The Big one. For me.Often I went deep in tournaments but did not quite get the result I expected. But it never hurt more than in Berlin. One year I got a big stack of chips and then made a superb hero call for it. He had the nuts.The next year I got a big stack of chips. Then I got it in...more
