A Triumphant Return to the Rio

It is with tremendous joy that I’m happy to announce that I’ll be returning to attend the World Series of Poker for the second year in a row.

I’ll be in attendance at the Rio and around Las Vegas meeting great people in poker and scouring for some of the best stories our game has to offer.

Hope to see you there!

Calling for Merit-Based WSOP Dealer Compensation

Typically, experience and expertise are things worth paying a premium for. It’s time for the WSOP to change the status quo and do the same, as far as dealer compensation is concerned.

This blog post calls for poker players to sign a petition, asking that the WSOP begin rewarding their dealers based on experience and excellence. It is my sincere hope that you support the initiative.
