HI, I’M KRISTY.
I’m a professional poker player, risk taker and Inspirational content creator.
Also I’m coffee addict, love to work out aggressively and have a sizable fear of aliens.
If I could sum up how I aspire to live in one sentence, this T.S. Elliot quote hits the mark:
Only those who risk going too far, can possibly know how far one can go.
With this one life, I’m going to the reaches of my capability. When I’m on my death bed, I want to be withered, exhausted, surrounded by family and pictures of my years of adventure and have no regrets.
That’s what #RiskEveryday is all about.
I’ve been in the poker industry for the past 15 years. In the beginning, I was a reporter for Card Player Magazine, then PokerNews, but in 2014, I left to play poker professionally (you can follow my poker journey on YouTube).
Poker is a game of math, reading people and mental toughness. What I loved most was that it was a game of skill, not gambling. Although there is an element of luck, luck would never determine your fate. If you kept taking the right calculated risks, you would win, in the long run.
What I learned is that life and love are the same. You can’t win if you don’t play.
