Creativity at the table...the drawing table

One thing I've been getting into lately is art, more specifically drawing. As a child I drew all the time - mostly it was horses or aeroplanes (don't ask) and at some point the results were consistently good. However, as with most hobbies arising in childhood, the more emotionally variable years of ...more

Rocking out with Poker Night in America

"Hey Liv, wanna come play deep-stacked cash against some sickos on TV in a couple of weeks?"As a long-time tourney player with comparatively little cash experience, this question gave me a twang of apprehension. Obviously not one to often turn down an opportunity for major TV exposure, I said yes. R...more

Mind Control

I'm really excited about the new TV program I'm involved with for Discovery Channel called Mind Control Freaks. I'm one of four "Mind Control Freaks" as we call them (my nickname is "The Charmer") and we put people through different experiments to illustrate various psychological phenomena. From th...more

Fulfilling the higher calling

I've been playing poker for a long time and thankfully, I've been reasonably successful doing so. With that came a wealth of amazing opportunities the game has given me, from travel to experiences to meeting heroes from many industries. But at the same time I've become increasingly aware of a grow...more

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 ru...more
