The Language Barrier was NO Problem for Harry Lodge during PSC Sochi

Written By: Maya Michaels | May 23, 2017 | Posted In Poker News

According to poker player Harry Lodge you have to get really creative in order to make it perfectly clear what you are betting when you do not speak Russian.

Lodge is an online qualifier who is making the very most out of the trip to Russia as he will be playing in a PokerStars National Championship Event.

After he finished second in Day 1b, this very young British pro stated that when he arrived back home he instantaneously launched an online grind.

Harry Lodge Really Unorganized

Harry continued to tell how he was unorganized and was not sure of the actual SCOOP dates ahead of time.  He also stated that for the very first week and a half he was actually on vacation with his girlfriend.  They then split up and he went on to Monte Carlo where she later joined him, from there they both went onto Sicily.

When they returned from vacation he played about a week of SCOOP this is when he finally realized that Sochi was set up for the final Sunday that SCOOP was. 

The Taste of Success

Harry has already tasted that sweet taste of success in live tournaments that have been sponsored by PokerStars.  In his very first live event he came in 5th place in the UKIPT4 Isle of Man Event with a total winning of £27,600 

He has also finished in 3rd place during the PokerStars Festival London in the £2k High Roller taking home a total of £36,150.

Over all Harry has seen a total of $338,000 in winning in live tournaments.  His very best poker game was held at the 2015 UK Poker Championships Nottingham Main Event where he brought home a total of £60,000 as well as the title.
