Brighton Has A Special Place In My Heart

Posted

I am finally, properly back at home after a fantastic but altogether too busy few months of travelling, poker, TV and various other bits and bobs of work. As usually happens after pushing things a bit too hard, my body has decided to punish me by getting heinously ill which doesn’t really give me a […]

Sightseeing in Prague With Kara Scott

Posted

It is really hard to come to Prague in December and NOT be in the holiday spirit. This city is like Christmas personified. With all of the hot wine and cider stalls set up to help tourists get into the swing of things, it even SMELLS like Christmas. I’m here for WPT National Prague and […]

Kara Scott Says Goodbye to a Special Friend

Posted

When I do something, I don’t do it by halves. I’ve had my good old iPhone 5 for just over a year now. When I finally moved to Italy properly, it became increasingly silly for me to hold on to my American cell phone. I rarely used it as an actual phone and it was […]

Debate Club: “I Detest Watching People Debate Just For The Sake Of It”

Posted

I was on a debate team in university as part of a political science course. For a person who felt REALLY strongly about issues (all issues, every issue – hello intense teenager days) the debate club had initially felt like a good fit for me. I was good at digging up evidence and connecting arguments […]

Ooohhhhhh Vienna!

Posted

So I’ve been here in Austria to play a WPT National event at the Montesino Casino in Vienna and it’s been great. Somehow, my week here for work has ended up feeling like a mini-vacation and that is in large part down to the people I’ve been interacting with every day. The staff at the […]

Kara Scott Blog: Hard Work = Success

Posted

The most successful poker players I know work incredibly hard to stay at the top of their game. I think that might actually be the biggest misconception that I run across, when it comes to people who play the game professionally. There is this idea that because poker is a ‘game’ that it’s not really […]
