What's your most memorable Poker Room moment?

Just today! I came in to work and the Poker Room was packed. There was a waiting list to get in on the games and you could just feel the excitement from all the players. Things like that are part of what I love about my job!

Food you can't live without?

Chinese food, I have to have rice every day.

Song you play the most on your iPod?

I mostly listen to Chinese music. My favorite song title translates to, "Always Think of You."

Do you play poker?

Yes, occasionally. But, when I'm not playing poker I like to play craps. Those are my two favorite casino games.

How did you become a dealer?

I moved out to Las Vegas from New York where I was a computer programmer to focus on my poker game. Now as a dealer I get to be around poker every day, it's great!

Where did you work before M?

Prior to joining the M Team I worked for Randy Couture's Xtreme Couture MMA Fight Gym. It's the job that brought me out to Las Vegas. After that I began working for the M at their sports book and shortly moved over to the poker room. It couldn't be a better fit, I love greeting all the different poker players we get here and I love just working at the M in general!

Food you can't live without?

Grilled Chicken! It's the only thing I'll eat at lunch; the chef always makes sure I get some.

Song you play the most on your iPod?

Anything Rascal Flatts.

Do you play poker?

No, but I love being able to see all the action in the poker room.

What's the biggest winning hand you've seen?

Someone won a progressive beat of $10,000 just the other day!

You can see Sam and Melissa in person at our Poker Room, so grab a seat at one of the 14 tables we have and show us your best hand.
