In this video blog, I discuss the end of my 2014 WSOP APAC trip and I also mention things I am doing to improve my life in the future. Melbourne has taught me a lot about myself and inspired me to be the best I can be.
In poker, and most other games, there tend to be three types of players. In this article, I am going to tell you how to give each of them what they want so they will eventually give you what you want.
One type plays mostly because they enjoy the social interactions. The second type likes to test the boundaries of the game. In poker, these players enjoy running insane bluffs or making huge folds that most players would never consider. The third player type loves to win. While you are almost certainly a blend of the three player types, it is important to realize who you are playing against in order to extract the maximum amount of profit in the long run. Read More

They were one of the first casinos to lower the buy-in of their main events to $3,500, which made it much easier weak players satellite into the main event, making the event quite profitable for professional poker players, despite the decreased buy-in.
Here are two videos I made before playing Day 2 of the 2014 World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open. The first video discusses how day 1a and 1b treated me. The second video is a tour of my hotel room where I show you where I work out and also how I make my breakfast. Yum!
In this blog post, I will list and explain 10 things you can start doing today that will improve your poker game. Even if you only apply one of the tips listed below, you will increase your win rate. There is never a better time to start improving than today.
