Middle East Tour ( Oct 30th - Nov 10th, 2014 )
Congratulations on your victory! Would you, please tell us about yourself.
My name is Gabriel Schoucair, I am twenty-six years old and my every trip is to Cyprus, to play Texas Hold’em in Merit. I have been playing poker just for 3-4 years but consider myself as a successful player. I studied business management and graduated three years ago.
Did you take any poker lessons?
No, I did not take any lessons but I read a couple of books on poker and practiced; I play too much. Although I play online poker too, it is not my favorite. I prefer the live game, cash game and tournaments. You can get bored easily online; it is too automatic, at least for me.
You have been very successful with Warm Up events. Is it the kind of luck you have, or is it a coincidence?
Well, I do not know what it is but definitely not luck. I just play a lot. I wish I won the Main Event. Last four tournaments in a row I played here in Merit Poker, I have won Warm Ups, it just happened this way.
