Goodbye Bratislava! It was good seing you again after almost 10 years! You have become a beautiful and pleasant city! First Poker trip to Banco Casino for me with a delegation of Belgians. 889 entries came together in the Main Event which is impressive considering the amount of tournaments that were scheduled across Europe these last days. It’s Poker extravaganza indeed in the players’ agendas and I think we made an excellent choice by deciding to make our way to Slovakia, the Banco Casino Bratislava and the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Although I am not working at the Spa Casino anymore as such, I am always welcome to shoot a set of photos over there. This past weekend, the Dutch organisation of Deaf Poker was hosting the Spa DEAF POKER FESTIVAL at the Poker Room Of Spa and I decided to show up on Sunday during the bubble of the Main Event :)
You'll find the full set of photos below and on Flickr or Facebook. Enjoy! :)
The Slovak Series Of Poker (26.6 > 1.7) are getting closer! I will be off to Slovakia on a road trip in late June and you can still join with the LG Events and Poker Belgique packages.
As some may already know, I have left the Poker Room of Spa as a co-worker in early May this spring but the action goes on with regular weekend events and occasional festivals to come. There are loads of promotions coming up for July and a nice Poker festival will be held in the middle of August. Find out more in the NEWS section of the P.R.O.S. website.
I will still be there from time to time for the occasional cash game round and I guess I will make my way down from Bristol where I am shooting a music festival in early August to take part to the Spa's Poker Feestje.
LG Events are putting a group of players together to travel to Bratislava at the end of this month and everybody is welcome to join the Poker action in Slovakia! You will find some info about THE HOTEL PACKAGES in one of my recent blog posts and I am throwing in a bunch of Poker portraits for those who book through me if you care.

I've been taking it easy lately. Picked up running and hiking again and got back to playing quite some online Poker too for a change. My mission at the Poker Room Of Spa came to an end in early May and I am now taking some time to try to shape the rest of the year.
I am super available at the moment if someone care to come up with a brilliant project to work on :)
I am thinking of leaving my base in Spa by late August but it is still not clear where to for now. Suggestions are also welcome for that! I basically don't need a lot: a bed, a bathroom, a kitchen - vamos! But I guess I need to figure out first what I will be doing before I chose where to go. Or maybe it does also work the other way around... On my list: Lisbon (yes, again) or somewhere sunny, Prague (always loved it or Eastern Europe generally speaking) or something more remote like Thailand (wish list) or Uruguay (a friend moved there and loves it).
The idea of buying a new mobile home has also crossed my mind a few times lately ...
To my old buddies of Luxembourg: I will be amongst you on a few occasions over this coming summer between my stops in Belgium, Slovakia, Georgia and England so let's meet up if you care!
Off to the Slovak Series of Poker in late June!! I have been kindly asked to promote another Poker trip organised by LG and Poker Belgique as an ambassador. These guys know how to get me ... throw in some card games and some travelling and I am snap-in :p This time, we are off to amazing Bratislava!
A group of players is being gathered right now and everybody is welcome to join!
