ShowMustG00n claims second Women's Sunday title, Boeree final tables

It was certainly a busy Sunday on PokerStars this weekend! Of course, the biggest news was the infamous Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) hosting its 2014 edition of tournaments. With three buy-in levels of each event and more than $40 million in guarantees throughout the series, players ...more

A parent before a poker player

I haven't been playing too much this spring. I did make a quick trip to the Borgata for a tournament not long ago, and I also traveled to EPT Sanremo where I managed to min-cash in the Main Event. I've played online some as well. But aside from that I have essentially been taking a break, going a...more

Four wishes

At the beginning of each year, everyone likes to talk about how many bracelets they want to win or how much money they want to win. I didn't exactly make a set of resolutions or set a list of ambitious goals. I made a wish list, since what I'm wishing for is quite a lot! My first wish is to absolu...more

My favorite time of year

I always look forward to the end of the year. It's a time of year when I dial back my traveling and spend most of my time in the New York City area. It's easy to take a nice little drive up to New England to see the leaves as they change color or to enjoy some snow. The end of the year is also a b...more

Keep it on the up and up

We all play poker because we want to win - pros, beginners, and casual poker players somewhere in between. But if you're at my table, don't even think about trying to shoot an angle. If you want to win a pot at my table, you better win it fair and square. At EPT Barcelona, a player at my table used...more

My sources say "winner!"

Wouldn't it be great if there was a crystal ball that would show you what tournaments you're going to cash in or even win? I think two of my friends might have one, and I'll tell you why. The last couple of years at the World Series of Poker, I started off slowly then got hot at the end. I often put...more

Breaking my own rules

I saved myself a lot of money by winning an EPT Grand Final package on PokerStars in a $500 satellite. However, my play down the stretch in the Main Event ended up costing me even more. Now that I have a little distance and can look back on how I played on Days 4 and 5, I realized that I made two ve...more

The real Victor Ramdin

I'm not a poker player 365 days a year. I also own a chain of retail stores in the Bronx and I tend to them when I'm home in New York City. This year they did extremely well and I'm very happy. Sometimes, to acquire inventory for my stores, I attend auctions and over the holidays I heard about one o...more

Holiday hibernation

Happy holidays, everyone. It's kind of a quiet period for me poker-wise -- I'm "hibernating," you might say. I'm playing online some and am really looking forward to the PCA in January, but right now I have a few other things on my plate. People know I work a lot with the outreach program Guyana ...more

Science, charity, and water polo

Can you believe I didn't win the Main Event again? If you can believe it, I didn't even make the final nine. Sorry! I know it hasn't aired on TV yet. I'm always bad at giving away spoilers. Another World Series of Poker has come to a close. Once again, I ended up only slightly on the winning side...more
