Swapping Food Poisoning For a Slight Hangover and Empty Pockets

Posted

And so ends another trip to the Borgata in New Jersey. It seems to be becoming a tradition – go to Atlantic City, have an enormous amount of fun, make no money and head home. Eh, there could be worse traditions. When I used to go to the Bahamas for poker tournaments, my ‘tradition’ was […]

Kara Helps Break a World Record!

Posted

In order to play your best poker, it’s important to be able to focus. For me, the best strategy is to spend time with the people I love, doing the things I love. High on that list, is eating truly fantastic food. Thankfully, just before I left for New Jersey to play WPT Borgata, Parma […]

Kara Scott: Be The Pigeon!

Posted

One of the first things that I learned about in poker was the ‘risk reward ratio’. It wasn’t something that I’d come across before in an explicit way but it made a lot of real world sense to me as soon as I heard about it. If you want to get the big rewards, often […]

Kara Scott: “Italy feels like home and I’m very grateful to be able to say that.”

First of all, thanks to all of you who took the time to share your favourite grind tunes with me after my blog a few weeks ago. I’m always looking for interesting new music choices and love to hear what people are listening to. I had a huge panic recently when I realised that an […]

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 […]

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 […]
