She was now hooked on tournament play and has since made multiple final tables a well as a final table finish in a WSOP Circuit Event. While she still prefers tournaments, she plays cash games as well. She was even a weekend "regular" in Vegas at a cash game that added to Hal's anxiety because it had thousands of dollars in play.
Hal has been a regular in the cash games in Los Angeles in Vegas for about 12 years. Prior to that he was found weekly at the Blackjack tables in Vegas. Now poker is his only passion in the casinos and considers anything else "gambling". Hal was co-owner and investor of the Senior Poker Tour which he departed last year due to creative differences with the direction of the Tour. He has been in Poker Radio now for 5 years after meeting the originator of Poker Radio, Wade Andrews. When they met at a Poker table in Las Vegas they became instant friends and Wade mentored Hal as a fellow announcer.
