It is my duty to make sure I have fun with whatever I'm doing at the time. Even if it meant the Poker Brat Phil Hellmuth sent me on a long trip around the edge of the world on a bike with two flat tires, searching for a way to beat him. That's his fairy tale, not mine!But if it did happen, I would still have fun along the way.
I'm at the final table of the 2012 Aussie Millions $100,000 buy-in and we're kicking off play before too long. Follow the action at PokerNews:
In my last post I was begging for accepting votes from everyone to help me win the Lithuanian Business Lighthouse Award - thank you everyone! I did win it out of 44 people that were nominated for the position, it was me! me! me! that took it down. I have all my loyal fans and readers to thank for it! And myself of course because I had to do something great to be nominated.

It's been awhile. It's always a crazy busy time for me with work and poker and life and laughter and fun - with very little time left over to just stop and relax. If I do take a break, who will take over the role of tormenting The Poker Brat? It's my job! Everything else I do is just for fun.
Life in Melbourne is good, great food, great poker and tennis every day. I've been playing poker with Patrik Antonius so if I mention looking for him for a match, it's all about poker baby. If we met for a tennis match, the only way I'd win is if he took a fall. Maybe we could set up a match where he played with a bucket over his head. I've been playing a little 200-400 PLO at The Crown trying to win enough to pay for Patrik's liters of Fiji water.
Here's a clip from Our Mixed Game Championship show that came out on the 10th on Sky Sports in the UK. And when you're done watching it, I need your vote so keep reading.
