Nik Persaud: The GUKPT Most Consistent Player

I may have mentioned Nik Persaud in passing in some of my previous columns, but I think it's about time he had one dedicated to himself. Londoner Nik has been the most consistent player on the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour during its short 18-month existence. At the very first event in Bolton in January 2007 he finished 10th, just missing the televised final table by one place. Later in the inaugural year of the tour, he went deep on two further occasions, resulting in another 10th-place finish (Luton) and a 16th-place exit (Brighton).

He's one of the most recognizable faces in the UK poker circuit and may also be reasonably well known in Vegas, considering he's visited there several times a year for most of the last two decades.

Player Profile: Lou Krieger

Poker Player Editor Lou Krieger stayed busy running between several different interests during the last years of the 1990s: His work as a management consultant for various political subdivisions such as cities and school districts; interesting up to certain point but by the mid-1990s it was beginning to leave him a little cold.

Playing poker whenever he found the time because the game had been part of his life since those childhood years when he peered over the shoulders of the adults in the Brooklyn home games sponsored by his family.

Hawaiian Gardens Shift Manager Nancy Grout

Hawaiian Gardens shift manager Nancy Grout says it was the long ago phone call from a girlfriend that changed everything, taking her across the country and into a new life.

She was back home in Pittsburgh on a break from studies at a Miami fashion school on a day in the mid- 1970s when she got a call from the friend whose family had moved to Las Vegas.

"Her father had been a policeman in Pittsburgh," Nancy says, "and he went out to Las Vegas to be a security guard at the MGM which was then the new big place in town."

Annie Duke: Interview Conclusion

This is the third and final installment of Jennifer Matiran's interview with Annie Duke.

During their initial conversation, Annie said, "I know players that have more talent in their pinky than I do in my whole body and they're broke."

"What do you mean?"

Jennifer asked. "They have leaks," said Annie.

"Leaks, what are leaks?" Jennifer asked curiously. "Leaks are when someone wins at the poker table and then proceeds to bet what they won on something else, and they end up losing everything they won in the first place."
