Eight-legged freaks and terrifying leaps

I took one of the best trips of my life after the Aussie Millions. I stayed in Australia for several weeks afterwards and traveled up the east coast with one of my close friends. We started off in Byron Bay, which is a gorgeous little beach town with a hippie vibe, full of surfers, artists and other...more

Great Expectations

Looking back on 2013, it was my worst poker year by far. Although I didn't play too many live tournaments, I didn't have a cash for six months. It was a real shock and a wake-up call, so I decided to meet with someone to get a bit of advice. After we chatted, he told me I have these unbelievably hig...more

The Arctic 30

On 18 September, a group of twenty-eight activists and two journalists traveled by inflatable boat from the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise to Gazprom's Prirazlomnaya oil drilling platform. In a peaceful statement of protest, they intended to hang a banner from the platform calling for an end to dril...more

Stepping onstage

After a long stretch of procrastination, I'm pleased to report that I finally took my first acting class. For the last few years it's been something I really wanted to try, but I kept putting it off. It's almost like I was strangely embarrassed to admit acting was something I wanted to try - maybe i...more

Mountain girl

I had an absolutely amazing World Series this year. Even though the poker was rubbish, it was the best summer I can remember, full of adventures and lots of parties. I got into really good shape doing lots of yoga and going rock climbing in Red Rock Canyon. After the Main Event, I took a road trip t...more

Running and red carpets

What a summer this has been. It started whilst most of my friends were already in Vegas for the start of the WSOP. I was busy attempting to train for the 10km charity run "Race for Life" in aid for Cancer Research UK. The race rolled around quickly - I had managed to squeeze in two 5km and one 7km ...more

Racing for life

I returned from EPT Berlin to find a really sweet and uplifting message in my Facebook inbox. It was from a fellow named Michael who wrote to say he'd been grinding the small stakes MTTs online for a few years and had developed a huge love for poker, but had often struggled to convert in the late st...more

Seafood? See food.

My plans to fly home to London and finally go about furnishing my flat were temporarily derailed when I was invited to the NBC Heads-Up Championship. I was delighted to get the opportunity to play, but since it was taking place only a few days after the PCA, it didn't make sense anymore to go home i...more

A roof of one's own

I'm excited to report that I finally bought an apartment! Ever since I won EPT San Remo I wanted to invest wisely, and I thought that a flat in London would not only be a solid investment, but will also put a permanent roof over my head. I've essentially been living out of a suitcase for two years a...more
