Specifically, we were hosted by Peter Chee and his team at ThinkSpace. What a [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, August 2018

Poker was hosted this month at the lovely Hera Hub in Sorrento Valley with special guest Silvia Mah! I think we all walked away from last night wondering just how does Silvia do everything she does. San Diego and the world is so lucky to have individuals like her, from angel investing, proving her father wrong, volunteering abroad and instilling those values in her children, [...]
