  1. Just WIN (With a quote from Scott Davies 2014 WSOP APAC Main Event champion)

    Big or small, tournament victories are hard to come by. Winning makes all the difference. Long hours at the computer screen or at the felt can seem pointless without the victory. Being the last player left in a tournament is the best feeling ever, it means no ones skill or luck could overcome you that day.

When it all comes down to it poker is work and if you not mentality and physically ready to work chances are your going to fail or not be as successful as someone that gives there all to there craft. People that have dreams of becoming a professional poker player must remember ...
  4. Bitter SWEET

    Last weeks blog was all about running hot, this weeks is blog is similar but has a different tune. Overconfidence was my number one problem this week.

  5. Running HOT

    Iím having a great week playing tournaments, Iím so close to getting even online I can taste it. Playing my aggressive, raise with anything in position style has proven to be much more valuable than my prior tight ABC approach. I canít picture myself ever getting away from this style. Raise after, raise makes your opponents easy to manipulate and easier to read. At the same time itís easier for them to play back at you so at times I use ďcontrolled aggressionĒ and it shows with my multiple cashes ...
