1 - WHO ARE YOU?Carey Hollick


2 - POST A PICTURE OF YOURSELF OR A LINK TO ONE (APAT OR OTHER)


3 - WHERE DO YOU COME FROM? Originally Michigan in the USA now I live in Witham, Essex


4 - TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF? I"m married to Paul who is English and we"ve been married 10 years this year in September I have 4 children and 5 stepchildren.  5 of them live with us at the moment.  I work full time in the cheque clearings and returns department for iPSL which is for Lloyd"s Banking Group.  I"m an outgoing and bubbly person most of the time and I love playing poker.


5 - WHAT IS YOUR POKER BACKGROUND?I remember watching at every family Christmas or reunion my uncles, grandparents,  and dad playing different types of poker and now I"m hooked. I think my dad taught me 5 card draw when i was a little kid.  I started playing online poker in 2004 after watching the WSOP from 2003 and thinking "I could do that." My proper first live tournament was probably the Betfred Ladies" Tour in Birmingham in 2007.

6 - WHAT IS YOUR PLAYING STYLE?I"m not sure...think I"m pretty tight in MTTs but am definitely more aggressive online then I am live.


7 - WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE POKER PLAYER AND WHY? DANIEL NEGREANU...not only is he gorgeous but he"s amazing at reading other people.  I love watching him.  I"ve had two chances to meet him in person and chickened out because I like him so much.


8 - WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ONLINE POKER SITE AND WHAT IS YOUR POKER ID THERE? Blackbelt Poker - CareybearBBP


9 - WHAT ARE YOUR POKER ACHIEVEMENTS?  Best online cash was for $8641 in a high roller tournament on Blackbelt in January 2011 when I got into the tournament by satellites.  Best live achievement would be 4th at a ladies" tour event and also winning into two legs of the GUKPT in 2009 and making day two in the London one and getting to be on the feature table all day and playing with Chris Moorman, Vicky Coren, Laurence Houghton and many other great poker players.  Also, winning a seat to the UKIPT in Brighton in 2011 was cool.


10 - WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE ABOUT LIVE POKER CURRENTLY, THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE?Wish all casinos had the same rules on all aspects of tournaments...one place you can muck and win the hand and others you have to show for example.  All should be the same on rulings.


11 - HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT APAT? Friends


12 -WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT APAT TOURNAMENTS, STANDARD OF PLAY AND STRUCTURE?  They have great stack sizes (i"ve only played 2 team events so far) and the length of the clock is perfect.  Lots of good players and the structure is good too.


13 - HAVE YOU PLAYED AT AN APAT LIVE EVENT AND IF SO, WHAT WAS MOST MEMORABLE ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE?I"ve played 2 team events with Blackbelt and they"ve both been a blast and the people are so friendly make you wanna come back for more tournaments.


14 - WHAT ARE YOUR MAIN INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF POKER?  My kids and family and spending time on the computer.(Are there other interests other than poker?)


15 - WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK OR FILM? Vicky Coren"s book is really good..i don"t read that often tbf.  My favourite films would be the Lord of the Rings or Matrix trilogies. But many more..anything action adventure/sci fi would be the best!!


16 - WHAT THREE MUSIC ALBUMS WOULD YOU TAKE TO A DESERT ISLAND WITH YOU? + by Ed Sheeran, Rio -Duran Duran, Eyes Wide Open-Snow Patrol (but i can think of way more)


17 - FINALLY, WHAT MESSAGE WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEAVE FOR YOUR FELLOW APAT MEMBERS?  You guys and gals have a great forum and I would like to meet more of you in the future.
