Kara Enters The Shark Cage!

Posted

Finally, a blog about poker! Well, kind of. Post World Series of Poker, except for a few evenings online, I took a good long time off to rest up and recover. The sun was shining and all was right in my world but I really didn’t have much to blog about in terms of the […]

What Music Do You Listen to When Playing Poker?

Posted

Kara Scott loves to listen to music when she’s playing poker. Here are here favourite tunes at the moment, what music do you like to listen to when playing poker? Here it is, my semi-annual call for new music to listen to while doing the online grind. I’ve never been able to listen to music […]

Kara Scott: A Time For Reflection

Posted

Summer is usually a time of reflection for me. Although we’re smack dab in the middle of the year, the WSOP always feels to me like it marks the end of the poker season. August is a time to rest and recover and then September means diving back into the next crazy round of travelling […]

Kara Scott’s Advice For Players New to Pot Limit Omaha

Posted

In last week’s blog, I explained how I’ve been toying with the idea of getting more proficient at Pot Limit Omaha (PLO). Since then, I’ve not exactly taken giant strides forward as I’ve found the lovely summer weather to be a bit distracting. I’m a summer dilettante, it’s true. Still, even a blind squirrel finds […]

Summer Diversions

Posted

The post-Vegas period is all about relaxing and recovering and I have thrown myself into that with enthusiasm. For the next few weeks, my poker will all be of the online variety and mostly done in pyjamas. It’s strange that after so many years in the poker industry, I’m only now just starting to take […]

Saying Goodbye to the Las Vegas Whirlwind

Posted

As incredible as it always is to be in Las Vegas for the summer, it’s even better to head home at the end of it. I always feel slightly broken from the intense heat, the long hours and the rich food. It’s an amazing experience, but I am definitely craving some time in my own […]

Kara Scott – Vegas Just Got Weird(er)

Posted

The weather in Vegas has taken a turn for the weird, just in time for the Main Event. It’s like being in a humid, tropical country and although everyone’s tans are suffering, I have to admit that I love it! I’ll be stuck indoors for some pretty long hours from now on, working on the […]

Kara Scott – I’m Going Bracelet Hunting

Posted

It’s always strange getting to Las Vegas when the World Series has been going on without you for a few weeks especially as being in another time zone means that I tend to hear all the stories a day late. I have to remind myself not to insta-respond to people’s FB statuses which say some […]

Kara Scott : Getting Hungry For Vegas!

Posted

It’s almost Vegas time. Bring on the crazy, summer, the World Series madness and the brand new WPT500 because I am ready! I can’t wait to catch up with old friends and take another shot at a bracelet. I’m not sure how many events I’ll be playing but I’ll be throwing my hat into a […]

Spring Is In The Air! By Kara Scott

Posted

It’s murphy’s law that  as soon as you have a bit of time off, it rains. And of course when it rains, it pours. It’s been thundering like crazy since I’ve been back in Parma but I’m hopeful that it will soon turns to sunshine as I happen to be getting married very soon and […]
