What It’s Like to Play Poker in Macau

5 minutes

It takes a minute to acclimate to Asia, especially coming from the Western world, where the slightest inconvenience is met with disdain. Poor hygiene, air pollution and the lack of infrastructure are superficial differences one notices immediately when touching down.

Once you accept these things (a mental ‘jet lag’), your journey begins.

Phuket makes that transition easy.



How to Measure Success in Poker

TVI had a crazy, epic Day 3 of the European Poker Tour in Malta,
but unfortunately ended up busting in 65th place.

It’s moments like these that one wonders why they bother with tournaments. Winning seems so impossible, so out of your control.

Even when hit with a lightening bolt of good fortune as I was – shoving with J8ss on a bluff into KK, and getting there – I still came up short.

Here is the interview I did with Dario Minieri for Pokerstars.it about Poker & Las Vegas, the WSOP bracelet and the cash games in Sin City. It’s in Italian… but, I promise, it’s cool to watch!


The Role of Luck in Poker

My thoughts on cash games and tournaments. A personal story. The sequal to Filtering the Noise: Cash Games or Tournaments?


Tournaments by nature are a more simple form of poker. The short span at which they are deep stacked (several hours of play) is quickly over and soon the play becomes rather rudimentary.

It’s not to say there isn’t skill or that experienced tournament players aren’t better at picking off spots, but the margins are much smaller and a lifetime of playing is not enough to realize one’s true expectation.
