These are plenty of great, talented people who’ve chosen to make a career in poker writing. English is the mother tongue of most of these writers, but a number of them – while they speak English – actually produce their poker content in other languages.
One such poker writer is Frank Op de Woerd, best known for his work with PokerNews.nl. He was kind enough to grant us an interview for the latest installment in our “Get to Know the Poker Media” series.
Poker Hall of Famer Mike Sexton was kind enough to allow me to interview him in person on Facebook Live at the 2016 World Series of Poker. We talked about his new book, “Life’s a Gamble” as well as his storied career as an ambassador in the poker world.
For those of you who couldn’t catch us live, here’s the video interview , along with a summarized transcript.
Even some poker writers who’ve been in the industry for more than a decade can have some fascinating stories to tell about their time prior to entering the business. One such poker writer is David Huber.
In our latest installment of the “Get to Know the Poker Media” series, David tells us what he loves so much about poker, speaks with passion about his desire for the game to keep growing, and tells us about a storied life prior to getting into the business of poker writing.
I hope you enjoy the interview.
James Guill’s poker witticisms and playful, good-natured ribbing always make me smile. His unique writing style is immensely enjoyable, and can be found on numerous websites, including right here at Cardplayer Lifestyle.
A great poker industry friend of mine, it was through wanting to interview James that the idea of doing this “Get to Know the Poker Media” series came to me. I hope you all enjoy this interview as much as I have.
It’s estimated that the ratio of male to female professional poker players is approximately 19:1. The same could perhaps be said of the field of poker writing, where relatively few women choose to make a career. One such woman is Jennifer Newell, who has stood out as a top poker writer for over a decade.
Known for being vocal on numerous subjects, we invite you to read more about Jennifer in this interview, and perhaps discover quite a few things you may not have known about her.
We hope you enjoy this next installment in our ongoing Get to Know the Poker Media series, featuring our first female interviewee.
Up next in our series of interviews entitled “Get to Know the Poker Media”, is Matthew Pitt. There’s a lot more to the UK Editor of PokerNews than meets the eye. Learn how “YorkyPuds” got into the poker industry, what his favorite poker subjects are to write about, and what it is that keeps him so interested in poker after almost a decade in the business.
