Hello from Barcelona!!!

I hope you guys are doing well! I'm here covering the EPT and LOVING this city. Now, the title of this blog includes two things that have nothing to do with each other. Haha so first, I wanted to say thank you so much for all the feedback on the Strategy with Kristy podcast. I really appreciate it. In case you missed it, here are the first two episodes with my poker coach Andrew "BalugaWhale" Seidman.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Let me know what you guys think! Also, if you have a hand you'd like reviewed by a pro, go ahead and send it to

Ok, now onto the second part of this blog title. Well, I've been in Barcelona for a few days now, and in Spain, the beaches are filled with topless bathing beauties. As an American, this is something I have never seen or taken advantage of (no tan lines ftw Smile ) So, in an attempt to gain the total cultural experience, I went topless!

I've been asked to host a strategy podcast for PokerNews! I'm pretty excited about it, and the first episode is going to premiere next week. Obviously, I've never done anything like this before, so I want to find out what listeners want!

Who would you like to hear as a guest?
What topics would you like covered?
Do you like straight up hand analysis?

To be honest, I'm a little nervous about this! I've always prided myself on being a student of the game, and I'm confident I will ask the right questions, but new things are always a bit daunting!

As for my poker playing, I haven't done much of it. I played a couple times at Aria, but that's it. I think I've sort of lost a little bit of the passion to just sit and grind. Maybe it's because I miss online poker, or because there are so many new goals I have. I'm not sure, but I actually do plan on playing tonight! Home game at Sarah Grant's house! Whoo hooo, get the the dirty martini's and slow rolls goin! We also plan on shooting a video about Home Game Poker Etiquette. Smile Should be funny/informational.

Anyway, thanks for reading and please, let me know what you'd like to hear on the strategy podcast!
