Winter might be coming for us mere mortals but things are heating up for poker players. The 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure provides the first sun of the year, along with a welcome stop on the European Poker Tour for Americans who can’t be bothered to travel.
World champ Joe McKeehen proved that his hot streak’s not over when he finished runner-up in both the $100k High Roller for $1,220,840 and the 6-Handed Turbo for another $62,100. McKeehen talked to us from the PCA about his win in the Main Event – click here to see what the man of typically few words had to say in one of his rst interviews since the summer.
The PCA Main Event final table didn’t let us down either, with Toby Lewis, Tony Gregg and Mike Watson battling it out for the first major title of the year.
From the PCA it was into the waiting jets for a long-haul ight down under. If the PCA is the traditional curtain raiser of the new year, the Aussie Millions is the pros’ favourite. The Crown Casino in Melbourne is a spectacular setting for a poker festival, with weather to match and the Aussie Open tennis just a short walk up the river.
It’s yet another good reason to jack in the day job in 2016 and try to make it as a professional poker player. It might be a hard way to make an easy living, but it comes with enough perks to make it worth a shot.
