Poker is awesome because every player has the capability to get better, assuming he is willing to put in the requisite time and energy, studying the game diligently both at and away from the table. Read More
My first book, Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, Volume 1, which is a must-read for all aspiring tournament poker players, gives a detailed outline of my tournament poker strategy and also strives to teach the readers (and now listeners!) how to learn to think for themselves, allowing them to profitably navigate any situation they encounter at the poker table.
In this blog post I am going to reveal to you a flaw I currently have in my game. I am also going to explain the actions I am taking to fix it. I hope you enjoy this candid look into my mind.
I recently had the pleasure of playing the $3,500 Borgata Poker Open World Poker Tour event. I must admit, Borgata has done an excellent job of cultivating their poker community and constantly growing their games. 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.
1. Start reraising with a polarized range.

While everyone probably knows to simply fold whenever a tight player enters the pot, it seems like the tight player often finds a way to get all-in before the flop with A-A. The easiest way to avoid set-up situations against the tight players is to simply never give them action. Read More
In this blog post, I am not only going to tell you how I got fat, but I will also explain how I got in the best shape of my life.
Throughout this post, I will outline changes you can make to your eating habits to get in great shape with minimal effort.
As a 12 year old boy, my diet consisted of microwavable chicken pot pies, canned vegetables, and Coca-Cola. Sometimes we would get lucky and have pizza or Chinese food.
Traveling is usually fun. Sometimes it is a nightmare. This time, American Airlines and US Airways provided a fun little nightmare that is going to result in me losing around $2,000 in reservations, losing a day, and missing a good friend’s wedding. Thanks for that!
Maybe they will fix the problem. We will see.
I have been working hard to make this site as great as possible.
If you have any comments or suggestions for how I can improve it, please let me know!
Thank you. Read More
Congrats to Allen Kessler for winning the Foxwoods WSOP Circuit event championship for $170,000.
I have been friends with Allen for a long time and I am happy to see him take down a title.
Allen has taught me so much about slot machines that I am confident I could be a professional slot machine player if I somehow lost all of my money. Read More
