Cyenna Welch

Cyenna Welch

Cyenna was born in Queenstown in the shadow of some of New Zealand's top live poker. She cut her card-playing teeth on friendly games with classmates, but it wasn't until her years in college studying economics in the United States in Las Vegas, Nevada that she took her game to the next level. She started playing regularly on The Strip and eventually tried her hand as a live poker room dealer. She began writing about poker and events around the Vegas circuit in her blog which quickly earned her some writing gigs for various gaming magazines in the U.S. and Europe. Now, back home in New Zealand, we are excited to have Cyenna's experience and analytical skills at our disposal.

Eric Clem

Eric Clem

He's come a long way from his early days insisting that Q-3 is a quality starting hand. While his friends won't let him forget it, he laughs about that now. Nowadays, there isn't a better human odds calculator in New Zealand than Eric. He can rattle off odds of winning or drawing out almost as fast as a player can glance at her hole cards. Eric is also our resident legal expert. He is obsessed with the various laws regarding live and online poker (and gambling in general) in New Zealand, the U.S. and in emerging markets around the world. He has offered his experience as a gaming consultant to various film industry projects and has focused his writing on poker and gaming websites with a special emphasis on gaming laws. When it comes to being immersed in the poker life, well, let's just say Eric is pot committed.

Glenn Hammond

Glenn Hammond

He can spend hours arguing odds with Eric. (Odds are always 50/50 right? It happens or it doesn't.) Glenn is blessed with a photographic memory which serves him well at the table. He can recite hand progressions from hours earlier in a Hold'em game like some people can recite lines from their favorite film. He has provided analysis for various poker broadcasts and has written extensively on betting patterns and hand analysis. Sometimes it seems like he has X-ray vision the way he can predict hole cards. When he is not at a casino poker table, on his laptop playing online poker, reading about poker, writing about poker, talking about poker and dreaming about poker, Glenn is an avid amateur rugby player.
