Two Major APT Announcements

It has been a while since we have made any major structural changes at APT. While we had a number of exciting changes in 2021, the early months of 2022 have been relatively quiet. It is true that we have had a number of great webinars and training packages to share with you in […]

Down Betting in Poker

Today I want to talk to you about down betting. First of all a brief definition: down betting is when you bet a smaller amount on a later street than you did on an earlier one. For example, if you’re in a $2/$5 game and you raised $20 preflop and then you bet $15 on […]

Five Times the Pot All-In Rule

I wanted to give a quick report on a hand that I played at the Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club $200K guarantee event last weekend. The event featured six starting flights and a $365 buy in. Over 1,300 people showed up and they totally smashed the guarantee; the prize pool was nearly $400,000. I […]

2022 Las Vegas Trip Report

This month, I finally returned to Las Vegas for the first time in over two years. This was an unheard of amount of time to be away from a city I’ve long considered my second home. The first thing I noticed upon my return was, thankfully, that Vegas hasn’t changed much. The night view from […]

How to Crush Mystery Bounty Tournaments

Last weekend I played in a “Mystery Bounty” event at BestBet cardroom in Jacksonville, Florida. Although I didn’t cash, I thought it would be worth telling the story and talking about the optimal strategy, especially given that there is a new bracelet event at the World Series of Poker this summer (Event #68, “Million Dollar […]

The players were so bad, I couldn’t beat them!

A few months ago, I did a blog post about the similarities between tennis and poker when it comes to the need for mental toughness.  Today I want to talk about beating “bad” poker players.

The more I play tennis, the more I realize that tennis and poker are one and the same.  It’s just […]

Mental Toughness in Tennis and Poker

I’ve been playing a “little” tennis lately. (Editor’s Note: Steve is obsessed with tennis. He plays seven days a week. It’s all he ever talks about.  He never shuts up.)

I’m amazed how two seemingly unrelated sports (tennis and poker) have so much in common. I’ve been annihilating tennis opponents left and right lately. And no, it isn’t because […]

A Common Man’s Brush with Poker Royalty

Destiny.  Can one really be destined to be a poker champion?  As if somehow the universe requires it to be so, and free will or bad luck cannot interfere?  I know it seems overly dramatic to say this, but somehow deep down, I don’t think any of us had any real doubts that Qui “Tommygun” […]
