APPT Cebu, LAPT Costa Rica, APPT Sydney… Where do I start?

December 22, 2009

Wow it’s been a while since I wrote a blog, and what a month I had!

We all know that photos on any property’s website are usually deceiving, requiring you to lower the expectation those photos build by at least 50% to remain satisfied when you arrive. APPT’s location of choice in Cebu, the Shangri-La Mactan Resort, exceeded not only my “reduced” expectations, but the original by a mile, and after six nights staying there it still continued to pleasantly surprise me until the day I checked-out with such particular attention to detail to ensure all guest’s have a perfect holiday. As always, we made a video showing off the location so make sure you check that out.

There’s over 13 acres of land, like a huge playground of beachside tropical gardens to explore. Throughout the grounds are a few huts with massage tables in them – the hole in the table where you put your head and usually look through to the floor, has a bowl of colourful petals floating on water so you’re not staring at a slab of concrete. When you lay on the beach someone comes around with refreshing pieces of pineapple and mango on a stick, and when you’re running on the treadmill the trainer comes around every-so-often to give you an icy-cold towel soaked in subtle lavender. It was heaven! And of course, the APPT was a great success, with the numbers going well over the original cap of 300. After word gets around on how amazing the resort is, I have no doubt numbers for next year will skyrocket.

I could rave on and on forever about how amazing it was, but I did feel guilty for enjoying the luxury of the resort when at the very same time one of my dear friends was traveling throughout the Philippines on an aid-mission. The stories of her experiences had me in tears, with the disease-ridden communities built on rubbish tips where your feet sink 10cm into the ground with every step, or the orphanages for abandoned disabled children left to just lay there all day, every day, with no stimulation or ability to move around. I know this is a problem the entire world is faced with and I certainly do not have the knowledge or experience to preach about it, but I did do my tiny bit to help, with my partner and I sponsoring a child through Kadasig Aid and Development to put her/him through school for the tiny price of $235 per year (we haven’t received our child’s file yet so I will post a picture when we do! Smile). My friend had the privilege of meeting her sponsor child and had dinner at her family’s house who cooked their once-per-year-special-occasion -only-treat, a chicken. If you don’t yet do your bit for the world with donating to some sort of cause, this, and of course the RSPCA, are the two that I encourage.

With the poverty aside, isolated within the paradise of the resort you literally feel like you’re in heaven. The resort is swarming, and I mean swarming, with such friendly staff on every corner you turn, all there ready and waiting to greet you, “Good morning ma’am”, “Good evening ma’am”, with such genuine, delighted smiles on their faces putting everyone in such an uplifted mood. From the concierge, to the cleaner, to the gardeners, to the henna tattoo guy on the beach, to the girl that takes your room service order over the phone… Each person oozes such an appreciation, enjoyment and love for their job.

So then, when I was done in one paradise resort, I was off to another – LAPT Costa Rica – but I wasn’t getting there easily. My flight path was Cebu-Manila-Brisbane-Sydney-LA -Houston-Costa Rica. I was dreading it, but in the end it turned out pretty well! When I boarded the plane in Sydney for LA, I was pleasantly surprised with my seat number… AGAIN! Upgraded to Premium Economy!! I couldn’t believe my luck! Out of my four major trips in the last five months, this was my third upgrade!! Big Grin Suddenly the 13hr flight wasn’t such a burden after all.

The PokerNews team hired a car and we drove four hours from the airport to the resort which was amazing with the thick Palm Tree-filled forests over the continuous hills. Although the only thing that ruined it were the psycho drivers!

The LAPT location - Paradisus Playa Conchal - was AMAZING! And HUGE. So huge that every minute an open-air bus drives past to shuttle you around the resort. Everyone had their own villa and it’s all-inclusive so you can enjoy the eight restaurants without opening your wallet once. Unfortunately I kept forgetting to book dinner each morning for the team so most nights we ended up “stuck” at the buffet, which was the option at the bottom of the list, yet still had amazing food. Unfortunately I can’t say the same for the 80’s Young Talent Time style entertainment during dinner, but it sure gave us a lot of laughs, even though that wasn’t their intention.

My highlight of the trip was when Garry and I got up early one morning and took a couple of quad bikes on a tour through the beaches and forests. My legs and hands were sore for days afterwards, but it was so much fun. Although every time I turned around Garry was shaking his head at my pansy quad-bike driving skills…

I really enjoyed that tournament. My last few gigs have been on the APPT so it was nice to mix up the crowd a little and meet a whole new bunch of people.

{img:7685}

Next was back to Australia for APPT Sydney – unbelievably my very first visit to Sydney, and I was impressed! Melbourne definitely wins for the people and atmosphere, but Sydney is serious eye-candy along the harbour and Bondi – I loved it. Although in typical south-eastern-Australian-Summe r fashion, my experience of Bondi was ruined with unexpected torrential rain.

Midway through the APPT Sydney Main Event I decided to try my luck in the Ladies Event. Having very little faith in myself in a $550 tournament, being only my second live tourney, I ended up selling off a huge percentage of myself which I regret in hindsight seeing I ended up taking third! Paying out a thick-wad of cash to eight different people was painful, but I was still happy with my collection – which went straight to paying off my car rego… boring! If you ever really want to put the people at your table on tilt then I suggest having Stephen Topakas and Tony Hachem amongst your rail who encouraged my eager backers to do Mexican waves every time I was involved in a hand Big Grin That was until I finally bust in third place out of 39 players with those evil pocket Jacks, sending us off to bed at 4am, but still with a big smile on my face Smile

Next stop on the poker circuit is PCA (Bahamas baby!!) and then of course my favourite Aussie Millions at Crown in my hometown Melbourne.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and NYE! xxx

At home in Melbourne for PokerNews Cup

October 06, 2009 2 comments

Another tournament down after the 2009 PokerNews Cup wrapped up on Monday with local Melbourne player Con Tsapkounis taking the title... And I can finally pronounce his name!

It was great to be back at Crown again catching up with everyone I used to work with. The first event we covered was an Online V Live invitational organised by PokerNetwork. Sixteen online players were put up against 16 Aussie live pros to try determine who were the "better" type players. Unfortunately for the live guys, Day 1 was a series of heads-up matches, which gave the onliners a clear advantage. The live guys came back on Day 2 with single table shootouts, but it was obvious the onliners stopped making an effort as they knew they'd already won hands down.

On Tuesday night I went into the SEN studio to record the PokerNetwork Hour radio show with James Potter and Clonie Gowen. It was my second week on the show so the nerves had calmed a little Smile Turns out Clonie is a huge Saints supporter, so later in the week I tested her knowledge on AFL.

On the first day of the Main Event, I snuck out with Alexander (our new cameraman) to shoot a boat cruise down the Yarra River that PokerNews organised for our qualifiers. Too bad it was freezing cold, typical Melbourne! While we were shooting on the roof of the boat, Alexander copped a belting to the head when we went under a bridge and he was looking at the camera so didn't notice that one of the pillars was longer than the other. Suddenly we hear a huge bang and one of the French qualifiers had caught Alexander before dropping to the floor! We all got a huge fright, but he was a trooper and insisted we kept shooting, despite the golf ball growing on his forehead.

Day 1B of the Main Event was a repecharge, so play was pretty loose on Day 1A as everyone who could afford to cough up another $2.2k knew they had a second chance. Total numbers for the event was 381, slightly down from last year, but pretty good considering the "GFC" downward trend and huge plague of events all year round.

Emad Tahtouh and Tony Dunst did really well in the Main Event, but they both cashed before the final table with Tony bubbling the FT in 10th place. Ouch! But a special mention has to go to PokerNews reporter James Bernard who also cashed in 24th place - GG James!

Mark Vos was one of the early busts, and unfortunately for him, all of his mates were some of the last. So when he was in need of friends, it was Lynn and Alexander who had to babysit (juuust kidding Vos). However, it was then that this idea was born, when Vos started to imitate Van Marcus' facebook profile picture, I just had to make a video out of it. That day was the highlight of the event, rounding up as many people as we could to do this in the middle of the poker room: (click pic)

{img:7131}

And of course, Monday night wrapped up with the player party at Tangerine at Crown. That ended up slightly larger than expected, with me hating the world the next morning! I got some awesome news that night that the boy won a seat to APPT Auckland, so I'll get to see him next week when I head there for work! Whoohoo! It's his birthday on the day of the final table... Do you think that could be a sign? Wink Fingers crossed!

This week I'm back in the office, and then on Tuesday I head to Auckland. I've never been to New Zealand so I'm looking forward to it! I'll post again from there. Ciao!

Home, Sweet, Home... Without my Handbag

September 21, 2009

After a month of traveling I'm back in Melbourne, Australia. With PokerNews Cup starting this weekend it will keep me on the home turf for a little while which is nice.

Once we wrapped up WPT Cyprus I was lucky enough to take a few days off and head over to Ireland to visit all of my extended family. I spent three days there and loved every minute of it, as it's not often I get to see them. Both nights were spent in Temple Bar (of course), doing a brilliant job in keeping up with my Irish counterparts. Unfortunately early on my second night when hugging an early departing cousin goodbye, my bag was swiped in a matter of seconds. No one saw who it was as it took a minute or two to realise, but I'll tell you what, there was some serious fury that came over me once I had. Of course the area that it happened was "out of range" of the security cameras, even though we were standing in the main part of the bar. Go figure. Some police officers happened to be on the street so we reported it, but there wasn't much else I could do besides deal with this new big pain in my arse. £200, credit cards, ID, not one but two cameras, make-up, and the rest of my life that I carry with me all day, everyday, were all gone! The positive side I saw, besides no one being hurt of course, was that I only had Pounds and no Euros in my wallet, so the quick fix I'm sure the scumbags were trying to pay for, suddenly wasn't so quick.

A random local guy came up offering me €100 to help me out which we thought at first was suss, but in hindsight after witnessing my mums furious, patriotic reaction from being "robbed in my own country", I think now was just a genuine, generous and disappointed local Dubliner. I kindly declined, but it was a nice gesture.

After the three days of hugs and goodbyes, I stopped in London for 1.5 days before the rechid flight back to Melbourne. We started the day of sightseeing (cameraless) with a Magners in Shakespear's Head, a traditional English pub on Carnaby Street between Oxford and Picadilly Circus. I completed the day with a visit to a somewhat frightening tattoo parlour to have my nose pierced by a girl with a face full of piercings and a chest full of ink. I've wanted to do it for years, but never had the guts, and then finally decided that if I was ever going to do it, it was going to be in London! So I bit the bullet, and I love it!! It didn't hurt nearly as much as I anticipated, although right now while I adjust to it, I just feel like I'm in urgent need of blowing my nose.

Tonight I'm making my debut as a co-host of the PokerNetwork Hour radio show on SEN! My actual debut on the show was as a nervous guest while I was at WPT Cyprus, but tonight will be the full kit and kaboodle in the studio, which will probably mean some extra first-timer nerves. Wish me luck!

WPT Merit Cyprus Classic... Almost over :(

September 12, 2009 1 comments

Well Day 5 of the WPT Merit Cyprus Classic has wrapped, and we're set up in the poker room ready for the final table. Day 4 started with 21 players, not quite in the money. It only took an hour to burst the bubble, and unfortunately it burst on the lone Aussie in the field Anthony Aboukhalil from Sydney. We only played down to 10 players, and then returned again yesterday to play down to six, ready for the final table any minute now. Five of the 10 players yesterday were notables, with the other five not-so-known. The four we lost were the biggest names (Layne Flack, Huck Seed, Jonathan Little and Nenad Medic), with Rep Porter quite relieved about being the only pro left for today.

The field was smaller than expected, with 181 runners all up. But it was more about quality not quantity here, with sooo many Full Tilters and big names including Chris Ferguson, Huck Seed, my new Twitter following pal Andy Bloch, the notorious smooth mover Gus Hansen, Layne Flack rocking the oh-so-fitting number 69 around his neck for the entire tournament, November Niner James Akenhead, Nenad Medic, Patrik Antonius, Phil Gordon, Dan Harrington, prop-bet lover Antonio Esfandiari who tried to put a wager on our Calling the Clock, and the colourful character Mike Matusow after a snooze on the couch outside the poker room.

Be sure to check out our video on Merit Crystal Cove and Northern Cyprus - this place is amazing, I've loved every minute of it. Once work started we still had a couple of chances to hit the beach. Day 4 wrapped up early and the five of us PokerNews-ers hit the beach for cocktails under the sunset, before heading out for dinner. The word around the WPT was Dragon was the place to go, so we finally had a chance to find out for ourselves. And my god... Easily the best Chinese meal I've ever had. Funny that I've come to Cyprus from China, and I find the best meal here cooked by Turkish Cypriots. I finally managed to have a real glass of white wine too! After downing a few of those, and the boys paying Crug to eat a bowl of chili sauce, we hit a bar down the road for some Hookah's and met up with some more friends, Jeanine and Yaani. On the way I tortured the boys with my shopping at the night markets. Shopping after a few drinks is never a good idea - I start to think that money just grows on trees and I bought almost everything I saw. To my surprise the next day though, I made some brilliant decisions. I made friends with some local stray dogs who were soooo excited that someone was paying them attention. Yes, if I was sober I would have refrained from touching them, but I couldn't help it, and found myself running around the street with these three stray dogs all over me! The next couple of hours consisted of Hookahs, more drinks, games of checkers and attempting to sing along with the Turkish band. F-Train fell asleep at the table, so he left to head back to the hotel with Jeanine and Yaani, and GG, Ramhole, Crug and I all kept searching for more booze-stops. Unfortunately we didn't have too much luck as this isn't exactly what you would call a "party town", but we did stumble across an underground nightclub and went in for a drink. Our party of four doubled the amount of customers the place had. That didn't hold off any tearing up of the dancefloor though.

{img:7027}

Last night we went into town again and had dinner at Niazi's - known for their kebabs. We ordered a full kebab and the food just kept coming and coming, so I left with one hell of a bloated stomach, but it was well worth it. I hit the night market again and got a henna tattoo on my ankle, which was disappointing but still kinda cool. The original idea was to get it on my hand... Thank god I didn't or it would have looked like I attacked myself with a Sharpie permanent marker.

{img:7026}

The final table has just sat at their seats and the speeches have commenced. It's time for me to get back to work, for my last day in Cyprus!

{img:7025}

Next stop for me is Dublin, Ireland to visit the family while on this side of the world. Being an isolated Australian makes me feel like a five hour flight across Europe is just a drop-in while in the neighbourhood.

In Cyprus Paradise... Minus the Food Poisoning

September 04, 2009

I'm currently in gorgeous Cyprus, with a few days up my sleeve before starting work at the WPT on Sunday. The island is split between the Greeks and Turkish, which was a bit of an eye opener while driving from one side to the other. On the Greek side all the road signs were obviously in Greek, with one sign noticed on the side of the road stating their mission for "Turks to be out". When you cross the border, you need to show your passport to gain permission, however our driver did all of this for us, with the security not even checking the car to ensure our photos matched our passports. For all they knew there could have been five other people in the car, so clearly it's not too difficult to cross over. On either side of the borders are fenced off army-barrack properties, with the barbed-wire fences showing signs of men with machine guns and trespass warnings. They were a little confronting to say the least. Then, the Turkish influence appears on the northern side of the island. I thought Americans were huge on patriotism... This place puts the US to shame!

Besides all the evidence of rivalry, and the baron inland, the island is absolutely stunning along the coast. We're staying at Merit Crystal Cove, the same venue as the tournament, which is an all-inclusive beachside resort. Basically my days consist of: buffet breakfast, a bit of a swim and bake on the beach with free cocktails, buffet lunch by the beach, more swimming/baking, buffet dinner, more free drinks, sleep, repeat. Tough huh?

The food has been fantastic - we're located on the Turkish side, so there's a lot of traditional breads and deserts. The buffets include everything you want - from fish, to chicken, to kebabs, to pasta. Not to mention olive oil being thrown around like it's water. At dinner there's live music every night, with the odd appearance from a belly dancer.

Until this morning... When two of us ate the same sausage at breakfast. About 20 minutes later we were ready to puke. We toughed it out and hit the gym, but that probably made it worse. I was bed ridden for the rest of day with food poisoning. Ugh! What a waste of perfect beach time - I couldn't even handle the sea breeze outside, I had to stay in bed. At least tomorrow I have one more day before work starts to make up for the play time!

Word is that around 250 are expected for the Main Event, with a lot of big names including pretty much all of the Full Tilt pros making an appearance except Ivey and Harman. Some players are starting to roll in early, such as Jeff Lisandro, Huck Seed and Daniel Alaei. It should be good!

Now it's time to get some sleep and hope for the best that I wake up 100%! Fingers crossed...{img:6987}

APPT Macau

August 30, 2009 1 comments

Booking budget flights on an airline that owns a tiny two circa 1990’s planes, with the name Viva Macau, which no one outside the poker community has ever heard of, has to spark a little concern when getting ready to let them own your fate of seeing past the age of 25.

A couple of days before I left I received a text message saying the flight was delayed. Arriving at the airport I could help but wish it was canceled, I really wasn’t ready to die! And there it was… “Flight Canceled” flashed on the screen. Yes it sucked, considering I’d pulled an all nighter to ensure I slept on the plane, but in the long run when myself and Ducky and about 10 other poker players were lined up for at the Virgin Atlantic desk five hours later to take us on a trustworthy flight to Hong Kong… it wasn’t so bad. To add to that, I even scored my first ever upgrade! There I was… “Premium Economy”… which, to me, was Business with the fat chairs, champagne on arrival, cushy socks and eye masks… Heaven! Van Marcus had paid his way there, but Julian Powell and I suddenly seemed to be having a day of “running sooooooo good”. Of course, before we even took off Julian already knew the hot Asian hostess on a first name basis!

When you land in Hong Kong you’re confronted by a mass of face masks... You have to fill out a form to confirm you have no symptoms of Swine Flu, and even when you get off the Hong Kong–Macau ferry, you’re tested with an infrared temperature meter to ensure you weren’t lying. Intense!

Luckily no bags were missing and at 3am I was “home sweet home” at Sofitel Ponte 16 for a well overdue shower and snooze.

I had a couple of days up my sleeve to check out the sights before starting work, so the first place I hit was the Hard Rock Day Spa at City of Dreams on the other island (Cotai). I had three hours of pampering for only AU$200! And none of this dodgy Thai Massage rubbish, it was all above board.

The rest of my time was pretty much spent by the pool with the swim up bar, and baking in the sun.

Once Craig arrived in Macau with the camera, we shot our location feature. Walking the streets of this city is bizarre. The extravagant casinos are just like you’d expect to see in Vegas, but then the local streets are the extreme opposite with shed-like housing that looks as if it’s about to topple over with a single gush of wind. There are some amazing sights, but some definitely made me feel appreciative of our way of life in Australia.

{img:6989}

We went up the Macau Tower, and I’m not the best with heights so the glass panels on the floor, 266 meters up, made my legs lose the plot! The view was amazing, it looks just like Vegas, but I have no idea how people bungee jump off that thing like Theo Tran did today!

The APT was here just before the APPT, so we landed an invite to the party which was held on the 39th floor penthouse at Star World. Keeping up with the tournament, the party was decorated with gorgeous Asian models that kept the boys well entertained. And, admittedly, I couldn’t get my eyes off them in admiration either, they were stunning! After the party most people ended up at a nightclub called D4, but, very out of character, I didn’t last long. I heard the next day the crew ended up on a VIP table so I was shattered that I bailed!

The APPT is held at the Grand Lisboa which is an amazing hotel that sticks out like a giant pineapple in the middle of Macau. The night before Day 1A was the PokerStars Welcome Party. Most of the players were there, so I got to meet all the Team Asia Pros who are an awesome bunch of guys (and girl!) and caught up with the Aussies. Unfortunately the first day we started work we had heaps of internet trouble, so I didn’t get hooked up until half hour before end of play. Rough!!

For the APPT we’re making the videos for PokerStars.tv also. I’ve interviewed most of the Team Asia & Australia Pros, did a Calling the Clock with Eric Assadourian and Theo Tran, landed a guided tour of the amazing restaurants and suites at Grand Lisboa for one of our feature vids, had a Mandarin poker lesson with Celina Lin, and heaps more, so make sure you check out tv.pokernews.com.

Besides the amazing breakfast buffet at our hotel with every breakfast-food you can imagine, and a couple of other meals, I’ve been a little disappointed with the food in Macau. Maybe it’s my selection of restaurants, but I thought I loved Asian food! Turns out I’ve loved “Westernised” Asian food. I can’t get past leaving the yellow bumpy raw-like skin on the chicken, as well as the bones throughout it. So a couple of meals were left uneaten. However, there’s two restaurants at Grand Lisboa that have blown me away. I grabbed a take-away lunch at The Congee and Noodle Corner which isn't quite Michelin Star-ed, but is recommended by them. I ordered my always favourite – a chicken and cashew with rice dish – and it didn’t let me down. It even had chilies to give it a bite. But probably not a breath my interviewee’s would appreciate! Next was The Kitchen that has received a Michelin Star. Wow, if you ever visit Macau you MUST eat here. It’s an open kitchen steakhouse that’s more in the higher price range, but worth every bite. I had the Cream of Tomato soup which came out looking like a pie with a pastry puff coating over the top of the bowl. I ordered the small main to keep plenty of room for the huge self-serve salad bar with everything you can think of to include in your side – from meats to cheese, to roasted veggies and antipasti.

On Thursday night I had my very first initiation to a live tournament. Kirsty Brew and I wrapped up work and entered the HKD$1,500 APPT Ladies Event. I was expecting 1-2 tables, but there turned out to be 34 entrants, mostly consisting of WAGs and a few local “terminators” as Jeanie Hachem so correctly put it. On my table I had a few terminators, Jeanie, and Raymond Wu’s stunning girlfriend who was also playing her first tourney, which Raymond was more excited about than she was! It started off pretty slow, but then there was plenty of action once everyone relaxed. I was folding almost every hand to begin with, which eventually makes me play rubbish due to my lack of patience, but I kept my cool and hung in there. Now here’s my first ever poker story… Let’s see how I go attempting to sound like a “player”…

I was crippled with my first bad beat (Here's my revenge telling the bad beat story for once). I shoved pre-flop with pocket 10’s, then flopped a set so was convinced it was all mine… But the one caller rivered a flush! That didn’t put me out though, and I ended up getting another two pocket pairs in a row after that. I was on the button with pocket Kings, and Raymond Wu’s girl shoved pre-flop with threes. The board showed nothing and I was suddenly back! A little later the girl to my right was short in the small blind, it folded around to her and she went all in. I had A-6, and knew she was bluffing so I called. And bluffing she was – 10-7. Out came an A-6 on the flop, and I knocked out someone for the first time! Whoohoo! Unfortunately though both pots were small, and I eventually ended up bubbling the final table when I was in the SB with K-6 and only about one BB left in my stack so I was forced to go all-in against A-K or something, but being the newbie that I am I can’t even remember what I got knocked out with!!

There we have it… My first poker story!

{img:6990}

Well, the APPT has just wrapped up, and I’ve finally managed to finish this epic blog. So much for my attempted daily entries… My next stop is WPT Cyprus, I will try my best there Smile

But for now, it’s time to pack, visit Hong Kong tomorrow, and then lay on a beach in Cyprus for a few days!

My Very First Blog...

July 30, 2009 1 comments

There's a first time for everything... So here's my first ever blog. I always thought about starting one, but never really thought I had anything interesting to talk about. But I guess now with all the traveling I'll be doing with PokerNews, I might Smile

I'm Lynn, the latest addition to the PokerNews video team. We just finished up at the 2009 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. It was my first gig as a hostess for PokerNews, which was one hell of a dive in the deep end being an international poker tournament noob.

I first fell into the poker scene working for Crown Casino in Melbourne where I thought I had learned a lot about poker while taking care of the marketing for Crown's flagship poker event - Aussie Millions. It was when I hit The Rio in June that I quickly learned otherwise. Knowing about Australian players is one thing, but I must admit, Google was my best friend for a while as I frantically tried to learn who was who.

With Crown being the only casino in Melbourne, and staff not being allowed to play, I arrived in Vegas as a live-game-virgin, so as you could imagine, I was dying to get on the tables. My first ever taste of a live cash game was a nice tame session of $2/$4 LH at M. I bought in for $100, at one stage was up about $60, then down about $60, and walked out with $102... At least I wasn't in the red! I told you it was tame...

I couldn't leave the States without throwing in a visit to New York and San Francisco. In line with probably 99% of all females who have the chance to visit the city... I am proud to say... I In Love New York.

So here I am now back in Melbourne, after making a stop in the stunning San Francisco and incredible New York City, as an official blog owner. My next gig is at my old stomping ground, the Victorian Poker Championship at Crown. I'll be covering the State of Origin and Main Event for PokerNetwork, so make sure you check it out!
