Interview with Andrew Neeme

Live poker grinder Andrew Neeme has risen to superstardom as a first-rate poker vlogger over the last few months. Amassing over 50,000 subscribers, he’s strung together a series of dozens of videos that provide a never-before-seen window into the poker lifestyle of a Vegas grinder.

Andrew was gracious enough to grant us this feature-length interview in which we covered a whole range of subjects, well beyond just his vlogging. His is a story we’re absolutely certain you’ll enjoy reading.

In Defense of Humanity

Finally the world decides to pay attention to poker, but the story they’re interested in is that Libratus, an artificial intelligence program devised by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, beat humans at the game. How sad.

Sometimes you have to swim against the tide. With mainstream media shouting to the heavens that “humans are doomed at poker”, I felt the need to pen an op-ed in defense of humanity. Let’s not forget what makes poker so engaging and enjoyable: it’s the PEOPLE! That’s what the world ought to be paying more attention to.
