Poker Camp Trip Report 

Our first ever poker camp came to an end in October. It was a blast! With over a dozen players flying in from ten different countries, it was a lively and fun experience.

The location:

At about 9500 feet (2900 Meters) above sea level, nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the location was excellent.

Some of the participants, in order top to bottom: Adam AKA Coffeeyay, Evan AKA Gripsed (from www.gripsed.com), Kevin, Aljaz, Knut, Ryan AKA Chicagory, Raph and Marius

Interview with adamc1988 

Charles Hawk: Did you have any specific goals for 2015? If yes, what were they? Are you happy with your performance so far?

adamc1988:  My goals changed a lot from the start of the year to mid way through the year, but I guess the consistent goal was to move up the stakes. I started the year as a 300s reg so to have been accepted into $1ks by September, I would have certainly took that in January. Overall I would say I was satisfied with my performance so far, but it's certainly not the time for pats on the back as the work never stops and there are still plenty of areas I want to improve on. 

Charles Hawk: How many VPPs have you earned this year? Are you chasing any milestone yet? Are you planning to grind alot next month?

adamc1988: I have about 1.3m VPPs, I'll comfortably get 1.5m and don't have any goals to push for any more. I'll be grinding a similar amount to usual for the rest of the year.

Charles Hawk: What are you predictions for 2016 a) for online poker (especially for husngs and spins) and b) rakeback at pokerstars? Do you think amaya could reduce rewards or change whole VIP club system? 

This week I tracked 30 players - 15 showed profit, 6 had losses and 9 were break-even. Winners combined for about ~$90,500, losers for ~$68,500. "mavrickkk" played biggest sample - 1204 games.

Interview with Daniel "Pl@yerABC" Sklár (Part 2) 

Charles Hawk: You wrote to me in a previous interview (in April) that Spins are more fun for you than husngs. Do you feel the same today? If action would be equal, why would you choose spins over husngs?

This week I tracked 26 players - 10 showed profit, 11 had losses and 5 were break-even. Winners combined for about ~$53,000, losers for ~$94,000. "azn-ra" played biggest sample - 905 games.
