I am in a super lucky spot. I am relatively healthy, I mostly love what I am doing with my life and I have more than enough money to support it.
If money played no role at all, chances are I would be flying around the globe on late afternoon flights above mountains during sunsets :-)
I am a big fan of BLACK. Not only for black and white photography but I have also always liked to darken my colour photos a lot. Probably the expression of the dark side of my soul :-)
I have been looking into a bunch of colouring techniques over the last months. This posts features examples of recent photos published from Romania to illustrate what I am talking about.
I am aware that I will not win any award with them since this approach goes against the grain for most photographers but I feel like it makes Poker photography a bit less hopelessly boring.
Live Poker rooms come in more or less organised ways and fashions. Some are very well run. Some are a complete mess. Mostly because of the human factor. One might like or dislike online Poker for the lack of social interactions but one of the biggest advantages of digital Poker games, is the smooth way promoters are able to run events with important numbers of players.
The massive 'Palace of the Parliament' in Bucharest, also known as the 'Republic's House' or 'People's House', is home to the Romanian Parliament of Romania. The mega building was ordered by Nicolae Ceausescu, designed and supervised by chief architect Anca Petrescu together with a team of roughly 700 architects who were kept busy over a period of 13 years (1984–1997) to complete it in Socialist Realist and Modernist Neoclassical architectural styles.
I flew from Luxembourg to Madrid on Sunday to meet up with my Spanish buddies followed by a flight straight to Bucharest for the Vamos Poker Tour on Monday. I'll spend the whole week here. Photos and useful links to follow us are available in this post.
[ Poker Trips ] Slovakia, Portugal, Romania & the U.K. to kick off the new year
The first two months of my new year are more or less taken care of when it comes to #allineverywhere. I'll start the year in Slovakia before a hop to Portugal for the end of January and I'll be visiting Romania and the U.K. in February.
[ Poker Trips ] Busy February 2023
February 2023 looks pretty packed with potentially non-stop Poker and travel action between the 6th to the 26th. Romania, UK & Ireland are solid options in my agenda with:
- the Vamos Poker Tour in Bucharest
- the Festival in Nottingham
- the Dublin POKER FESTIVAL
The Poker Trips section is up to date. December is still a bit of a blur but I know more or less what I'll be up to during November. Beat the Rake promos and full schedules are online in the POKER TRIPS section.
Slovakia - Spain - Austria - Romania
... and the usual last minute randomness :-)
[ Romania ] Vamos!
The Vamos Poker Tour is one of the latest additions to the jungle of European Poker circuits after a starting event in Bratislava during September 2022. Now, 2023 is coming up fast and the promoters have been busy since this autumn. The result is the next VPT leg announced in Bucharest, Romania in February.

In early December the Cash Game Tour will stop in Romania’s beautiful capital city. The choice of the location for this event was the Platinum Casino, the biggest casino resort in the country: a 5-star facility with great food, excellent entertainment, amazing gambling, shopping, sports, relaxation and full travel services.
