London Living...

I'm sitting in a condo in London, it overlooks the Thames river. I arrived here yesterday morning with my friend Sam. The main reason for me being here is the European Poker Tour (EPT) main event. It's my first time to Europe so naturally I am excited and ready to see a different part of the world I have never witnessed.

After London I am planning on going to Amsterdam and maybe a few day trips to other countries. That is dependent on how well the EPT main event goes and if I decide to play any other side events. Once I'm done with London I'm going to head over to Cannes, France for the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE.) I don't know where I will head to after that. Maybe I will go home, but there are a few other destinations I have in mind that I might check out. A couple of my friends play basketball in Japan, that would be an entertaining trip. I'm very fortunate to be in this situation and am trying to take in the whole experience. Can't take anything for granted.

Other than for this trip I haven't played much poker lately (what's new lol.) I've been doing my fair share of poker coaching, but haven't been on the tables. I spent about a month looking to get a new car, researching, shopping around and figuring out what I wanted. I finally got that out of the way. I'm looking forward to getting back in the game and having success over the next few weeks. Even if I don't, I'm in Europe! I'll experience new places, culture, people, and have a great time. If anyone has any suggestions (on what to do/where to go) or comments please don't hesitate to let me know.

I will do my best to take a lot of pictures and post some interesting things on the blog. I realize I mostly talk about poker and I feel like that has limited my posts and saturated my blog. I think I am going to start opening up and talking about a variety of other topics rather than poker all day haha. After all, I'm just talking to myself anyways. I might as well share some of my other thoughts to whoever visits the site and reads the blog. Stay tuned.
