I’m not sure why but I’m on a door crazy lately. Every city I go to I take pictures of the doors and Milan, with its old historic buildings, has some of the most beautiful damn doors in the world.

I love staying in apartments when I travel. It makes the city feel like home. Nothing offers a more local experience than shopping for food and cooking.
And there’s perhaps no better place to do that than in Italy, where the fresh fruit and vegetables have some of the most robust flavors in the world.
It’s easy to feel at home in an apartment like this. Our two-story penthouse was bursting with so much light that even a cold, damp winter day was inspiring.READ MOREJanuary 28th, 2016
You know it’s going to be a fun hand anytime Phil Hellmuth is involved.
Win, and you’ve just sparked the catalyst for a legendary blow up. Lose and at least you have a story to tell.

- June 19th, 2015My 2 year anniversary is a symbolic one. Last year at the exact same time my wife and I had vacation plans to visit Hawaii. I had the entire trip booked only to cancel last minute because of the unmissable opportunity of high stakes poker in Macau. I gave myself many justifications for missing the trip: 1. one hour in the cash game could pay for the entire vacation. 2. These games won't be here forever. 3. If I win this month I won't have to work the rest of the year. 4. Hawaii will always be there. With the games as big and lucrative as they were,READ MOREJune 4th, 2015I was wrong: I don't play poker to gloat those two sweet words, 'I won.' I reflected on this fact after a rough 24-hour session in Macau. Despite losing, being exhausted and loopy, I was inspired, felt a deep sense of accomplishment and was proud of how I played. It's the contentment that only comes from knowing you've played your best. In poker, like anything in life, it's important one derives their satisfaction from within for not always are we awarded a victory in spite of giving our greatest effort. The industry of poker is a double edged sword: it's a shame the casual viewerREAD MOREMay 31st, 2015The recent ‘Brain vs. AI’ matches between Claudico, the most advanced poker AI in the world to date, VS. 4 of the best Heads Up No Limit Hold'em players in the world has left the poker community wondering: will a machine ever beat a human at poker?
