In Appreciation: How I Got to Work for Poker PROductions During the WSOP Main Event

Heading into the summer of 2017, I was happily looking forward to the first three weeks of June, during which I’d be attending my second World Series of Poker.

Interview with 2016 WSOP November Niner Vojtěch Růžička

With people from all over the world playing in the WSOP Main Event, among the people who make the November Nine each year there are often some non-native speakers of English. Vojtěch Růžička, of the Czech Republic, has made the 2016 November Nine.

Pretty much by definition, anyone whose native language isn’t English cannot fully express themselves if being interviewed in that language. For that reason, we went the extra mile here at Cardplayer Lifestyle and asked our contributor Libs Foord, a native speaker of Czech, to conduct an interview with Vojtech in his native tongue.

The interview was then translated into English and edited, which leaves you, dear reader, with a fascinating, in-depth portrait of Vojtech’s poker career and his life away from the tables.
