Can gambling help your career?

Ask any professional gambler what it takes to be a winner. They might say money management, advanced analysis or psychological endurance. Perhaps they’ll credit their victories to a sharkish streak – an innate ‘killer instinct'. A bare few might even describe themselves as ‘lucky'. Now, put the same question to your professional idols (or consult the internet if Bill Gates and Richard Branson aren’t available for comment.) Don’t be surprised if you experience a touch of déjà vu. It has been argued that the tools to excel professionally - discipline, ambition, self-belief etc. – are the same qualities that help professi...

Poker polymath Victoria Coren Mitchell, 41, made history on Sunday by becoming the first player ever to win the European Poker Tour twice. Fending off 556 competitors, including Jordan Westmorland and Giacomo Fundaro, the Only Connect host scored a cash-prize of £391,000 after clobbering Fundaro on home turf at the 98th EPT main event in Sam Remo, Italy. Coren Mitchell was a 3-to-1 favourite by the time she came to the last table (watch below.) In the final hand, Fundaro flat-called with AC and AS; the flop came JD, 7S, QC, giving Coren Mitchell the upper hand with two pair. After Fundaro checked, Coren-Mitchell bet 350,000. When Fundaro raised to 825,000, Coren Mitche...

American gambling madam Molly Bloom, dubbed the Poker Princess, has been given a year’s probation for her role in hosting illegal gambling parties for the rich and famous. In a gambling ring that was said to be worth $100m, 36 year-old Bloom helped organise underground games at the Plaza hotel for high rolling Wall St financiers and celebrities, said to include ex-Spiderman Tobey Maguire, Matt Damon and Wolf of Wall street star, Leonardo DiCaprio. Bloom was among more than 30 people charged last year when U.S. authorities discovered the poker games in New York after following a trans-Atlantic money trail as part of wide reaching anti-betting operation. In December, Bloom plead...

Good news for grinders: new UK law WON’T block auto re-buy...

Image credit: Poker.excite The UK's new Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act 2014 may be causing ructions across the nation’s poker community, but there’s some good news for grinders. The threat to make the “auto top-up” or “re-buy” feature on poker clients illegal in the UK seems to have diminished.
