Table Talk: Tired Travel

Fossilman aka the Road Warrior
Jon 'Apestyles' Van Fleet was moved to Greg Raymer's table. The young gun asked the former WSOP champion if he got tired of all the traveling. Raymer is a true ambassador of poker and has played in different events in 2008 all over the world including stops on the European Poker Tour, the Asian Pacific Poker Tour, and the Latin America Poker Tour.

Since he won the WSOP in 2004, Raymer has been on the road constantly, which is both a blessing and a curse for pros on the tournament circuit. Seeing the world via poker is an unbelievable, yet bittersweet experience. The drawback is that players constantly live in hotels and don't get to spend as much time at home with their family and friends as they would like.
