Going close in London

It's been an exciting few weeks. You might have heard I played in an EPT event recently. It went pretty well. Just before that I had been in the Isle of Man for a week, playing the UKIPT there. Then I went straight to London to play the UKIPT Main Event. I felt like was playing well but didn't h...more

Battling with Blom in WCOOP

I am writing at the end of the long three-week grind of the WCOOP. Things went only so-so for me until near the end when I finally picked up a couple of cashes. Then came the Main Event where I made Day 2 and got all of the way to 59th for just over $24K. That was a little disappointing to get so...more

Getting back on the tournament trail

I'm writing from Leeds, back home at last after a long, winding journey of poker-related traveling that lasted for several months. It started in Florida where Arianna was born back in the spring. Then the whole family traveled to Las Vegas where we spent the entire summer for the WSOP. I made a q...more

Vegas-> Marbella-> Vegas-> Bracelet?

I've just left Las Vegas and am on a quick visit to Marbella for the UKIPT, where I've started off well (follow Marbella live updates here). As soon as I'm finished here, I'll be back to Vegas for another summer at the World Series of Poker. I'll be playing essentially every no-limit hold'em event ...more

Baby steps

Arianna is here! As I write she is three weeks old today. I can't believe she's three weeks old already, since it seemed like Alex and I were waiting so long and then she was about a week overdue. We were just waiting and waiting and it felt like the day would never come. But she's here and time...more

The wait for baby Cody

Forgive me if I sound a little distracted. I'm writing this post just a little over two weeks away from the due date of my first child. My girlfriend Alex is due to give birth to our baby girl, Arianna, on March 23rd, and the day can't come soon enough!Recent days have been busy, as you might imag...more

A break for baby Cody

So far this year, I've already been to the PCA and EPT Deauville. The PCA is kind of a special place for me as it was one year ago that PokerStars announced there in the Bahamas that I was a new Team PokerStars Pro. I'm really proud and grateful for everything PokerStars has done, and going back th...more

Team Pro road trip

I never realized how much went into making a television commercial until I stepped on the set of my first PokerStars brand shoot. I couldn't believe the amount of people working on it. It was a huge project, on a much larger scale than I'd envisioned. A big group of us Team Pros traveled to Barcelon...more

I'm thinking about growing a beard. It's kind of dad-like to have a beard, right? Since I have no idea what it takes to be a dad, maybe I'll start dressing the part to be a bit more convincing. Perhaps I'll find a lumberjack shirt to go with it, but I'm not sure if that's going to work in the Florid...more

Keeping it professional

My 2013 World Series of Poker was the most productive and professional one I've had and it's not even close. I was up every morning, going to the gym, playing well and my hard work ended up paying off. I made the final table of the $1,000 turbo NLHE, but ended up losing a flip for half the chips in ...more
