No Limit Texas Hold'em Poker

Ever since my college roommate, Yehuda, got me into No Limit Texas Hold'em Poker, I've been totally hooked. As an Asian, embracing the game was a no-brainer – let's be real, we were pretty cash-strapped, so why not try to gamble our way to the top? ;) The wildest parts of this poker adventure? You guessed it: trash-talking, bluffing, and hollywooding – which, by the way, might just be the reason behind the 2023 Oscars sweep by Asian actors! Now, poker's not just gambling; it's a clever mix of psychology, human behavior, and a pinch of math – so let's give it the respect it deserves. But okay, okay, I admit I love gambling too. You know when I made the riskiest bet of my life? On my PhD applications in 2023 – if you know, you know. So, I juggle my love for poker with my research pursuits. Research can be such a tough gig that sometimes the only way to let off steam is by making my opponents suffer at the poker table :). Work hard, play harder, right? Check out my recent poker triumphs – I'll keep this list up-to-date, so stay tuned for more!
