POKER

How bad do you want it!?

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath then you will be successful. Most of you say you want to be successful but you don't want it bad. You just kind of want it. You don't want it as bad as you want to party or be cool.

What would Lance Armstrong do?

April was a very tough month for me poker wise. No matter what I did I kept losing and the losing streak lasted 22 days. I was down almost $7000 at some stage which is 35 buyins meanwhile my Expected Value (EV) graph mathematically showed a tiny profit. I asked myself: “What would Lance do?” The answer is: “He would keep fighting the variance and climb the mountains regardless of the conditions!”

 

WORK TASKS IN APRIL

My Poker Office in Australia

One of the greatest perks in my job is that the entire world is my office. I get to travel whenever I want. I went to Australia about a month ago and certainly this has been the best time of my short poker career so far. Just look at the view from my office...

The Land Down Under

In December I made the decision to visit Chris an old mate in Brisbane, Australia. Chris and I used to work together in Malta where we both lived for many years. In November last year we chatted on skype and Chris mentioned he might be moving back to Malta if a job presented itself. I then decided to visit him while having the opportunity to so. It is a brilliant chance to experience The Land of Down Under.

My Dissection of a Dream

Four days ago I woke up from a funny dream. I dream a lot in my sleep and remember them when I wake up. I often try to analyse my own dreams before I get out of bed.  It sounds strange however I want to share this with you guys since it is related to my latest blog. My follow up “I got skills – part II” will be coming soon.

 

My Story of PokerHistory

Today is the first day in a new era of my life. I have been working in the online gambling industry since I was 20 years old. At the age of 21 I bought the domain Poker.dk together with two industry friends. Due to a law that was passed in Denmark November 2003, I got a letter in 2004 telling me I had to close Poker.dk. The alternative was to leave the country. If not I could face 2 years in prison and have everything we earned confiscated plus get a fine of 100% of what we made. As most of you know I chose to move to Malta.
