Finishing Strong

I seem to always have a desire to write a new blog post specifically when I'm on an airplane with no wifi. No poker, no OFC, no sports? I can't really watch anything- at least anything I want. Now my mind seems to flood with what I want to tell the world when I get out of this metal rocket cylinder ...more

Stoked for the summer 

Sitting on my flight to Vegas, I started to think about the fact that this will be my ninth year in a row attending the World Series of Poker and going to Vegas for the summer. It feels like just yesterday I was a 21-year-old kid coming off my first big win at EPT San Remo just 7 weeks before playin...more

Back on top

Around two months ago, to say I was disappointed with how the summer had started would have been an understatement. Coming off a great SCOOP series on PokerStars in which I won three events and the Player of the Series, I was motivated and excited to play a full schedule of tournaments and cash gam...more

Climbing back up the GPI ladder

I'm back in Florida, having returned from London a couple of weeks ago. The plan right now is to stay at home for most of November, aside from playing in one tournament in Jacksonville. I may, however, also make a trip to Montreal to play a big event there before Thanksgiving. Then in December ...more

Finishing strong

Fall is here already, and it's a busy time again for me now that poker is back in full swing. I'm looking at the calendar these days, and thinking a lot about finishing the year strong.EPT Barcelona was a good trip for me, where I managed to get second in the €10,300 High Roller. That turned out t...more

WSOP wrap-up and Bellagio score

I had a really good start to the World Series this year. I finished ninth in the $10,000 Deuce-to-Seven triple draw event, cashed the $1,500 NLHE six-max, and came very close to winning my third WSOP bracelet in the $10,000 no-limit Deuce-to-Seven single draw. That event was a little disappointing f...more

Time for summer camp!

It's World Series of Poker time again. I'm going to be in Las Vegas all summer and am pretty pumped about playing all the big tournaments. I love the schedule for this year's WSOP, which is much more exciting for me this year than last year. I'm excited about all of the $10K events, especially th...more

Coach Jason "No Tilt" Mercier

The year has gotten off to a good start for me. I've played 12 live tournaments so far in 2014 and cashed six of them, including cashing the first three Main Events I played. Today I'm in the final 19 of the WPT event in Jacksonville, Florida and hoping to make the final table. It has been a nice s...more

On to the next one

I wish I could tell you that I went to the Bahamas and won the first tournament I entered. Unfortunately, my return to poker after a two month absence didn't go as perfectly as I dreamed. Despite not cashing in the Super High Roller or High Roller events, I was still able to have a profitable trip....more

In search of balance

I need more balance in my life. I'm home in Florida now after an intense, month-long poker trip in Europe. The trip itself was great, but sometimes these long stints on the road can be physically, mentally and spiritually draining. "Guy gets to spend a month in Europe playing poker and he's tired,"...more
