For this coming new year, you can call me 'El Ambassador' ^^
As a matter of fact, after years of collaboration and of #nuncasuerte , I am very veeeery happy to be officially part of the Spanish Poker Festival crew as an ambassador for the brand.
We have lanched a completely new website this weekend under www.spfpoker.com with the announcement of the 11 SPF stops of 2020. There will be 9 cities on the tour map with two stops each in Madrid and in Rozvadov. Also, you will find some new spots on the map like the stop in Vigo for instance. Find out all there is to know about this upcoming #spfpoker year.
I can help you find all the info to make your way to the stops in case you are planning to drop by and you will always find the available packages in the POKER TRIPS section of this site.
See you on the Spanish roads!
The #SPFpoker Main Event is on at Casino Gran Via and you can follow the full coverage on Poker Red!
My favourite thing about Poker by far is the cultural mix overdose I get again and again! After a micro stop in Estoril, Lisbon last weekend, I made my way to southern Spain for the Sevilla Poker Open just before the Spanish Poker Festival National Finals in Madrid starting this weekend!
SEVILLA POKER OPEN info can be found all across the social media landscape:
My photos of my Seville stay are online in the photo section of this website.

I spent most of my November in Portugal playing cash games at Casino Estoril and enjoying what this awesome country has to offer. Still no tournaments for now but at least 2-3 Poker tables are running every day with blinds starting at NLH 1/3 and some PLO. The Omaha game is the local highrollers' playground but it's PLO4 only so not insane swingy ... I'll be back soon. For sure! But let's have a look at what's coming up for the coming weeks. In the meanwhile, you can have a look at my photo archive on Flickr.

It's time to #punishthespanish again!! :D
I left Spa this morning after some photo reporting over the Roller Coaster Festival weekend days and I stayed one extra day to attend the Poker Room of Spa Monday Cash Game Night yesterday. I was able to book a positive session but my highlight of the weekend was my second place finish in the Chill Out event while I was still posting updates and shooting pictures of the final stages of the Main Event final table. Poker an easy game :)
I will be back in Spain next week to #punishthespanish because they still deserve it :D
After a stop at CNP Estoril recently, I am now attending the Poker Room Of Spa Roller Coaster Festival in Belgium before leaving to Madrid next Wednesday for the finals of the CNP GRAN FINAL.
The festival is already in full swing since the 16th of this month and you can follow the action on their Facebook page or on the Laroush Events page.
To kick-off the new year in an 'all over the place' manner, I found myself hesitating between these two destinations. Minsk, Belarus, for a Cash Game Weekend with furious Eastern chip throwers featuring a Belarus Poker Tour (BPT) stop or Madrid, Spain, for the Levante Poker Challenge including juicy OLE! cash games and not risking to freeze to death if I decide to go for a coffee around the corner.

Yesterday, I drove to chill in Luxembourg trying to take advantage of the coming summer days with old buddies and my brother ...
Yes, I know - stupid idea :) Long story short: I slept at a friend's place, my buddy's wife ended up turning on the heating this morning and it has been raining for most of the day on top of that.
That is why, I will be heading South again soon :) This weekend (9th > 11th June), I will probably be shooting some of my last Poker Belgique photos in Namur before the Monster Tournament in October, so join us for the ongoing Big Slick event that started on monday already with the first Day 1. The results of the first Day 1s are already available on pokerbelgique.be and I will be on the spot this weekend for a proper photo coverage of the finals until sunday night.

Everybody who follows me online must know by now how crazy in love I am with Portugal, so it was no big surprise to anyone when I suggested my Lisbon friends to join them (again) from 12th to 20th of June.
A little bit of chilling by the ocean, a couple of beers with the buddies, some cash games at the Estoril casino, cafezinhos with supercuties by the pool ... the plan seemed perfect :)
... until one of them showed up to ruin my relaxed vacation plans :) Holidays have been cancelled, it seems!
So now, we're thinking of leaving to Spain for the Golden Poker Series Madrid before moving on to the PokerStars Festival in Marbella from the 19th to 25th. See you on the road!
ON THE ROAD
Before the summer of 2017, the page was animated by 2 blogs: the Poker tournament blog and the general blog. Today, only the former tournament blog remains active featuring all sorts of updates in one place only. Easier for you, easier for us ... :)
