I’ve played poker tournaments where I have to outlast,
outplay and outwit thousands to win the game.”
It is not all about ruthless game-playing for Adam. He is
also a married father of two who says his family is his
world and that they will be devastated without him.
“I am Mr Mum. I spend all week with the kids, doing
the school and kindy drop-offs and pick-ups, helping at
soccer practice and games around school.”"
