Western Star: Endersby riding the rush

Bursting on to the scene in 2014, Western Australia’s Travis Endersby is no stranger to final tables. From winning $12,000 at his home casino, Crown Perth, in July 2014 to his epic run in the 2023 Triton Super High Roller 7-handed event in Monte Carlo, Endersby has definitely made his mark on the Australian and international poker scene. 

But he has really found his stride in the last 12 months, going from strength to strength on the back of a refined game and preparation he has documented via his twitch channel. His HendonMob documents a cash in 19 events over the last year and his total live earnings are nearing the US$1 million mark. Perhaps today’s result will tick it over the edge.

This series alone has seen Endersby claim three cashes including two final tables – coming 6th for the 5k Challenge, 3rd in the Surf’s Up Freezeout $450 event and 11th in the Opening Event – and now with hopes of closing it out in the WPT Prime Gold Coast Main Event. 

PMA’s Alison Lee Rubie caught up with the West Aussie on break to discuss all things poker. The conversation starts with Endersby reflecting on his recent successes, highlighting the final table finish at the Triton event in Monte Carlo. “I won a package to Triton in Monte Carlo and managed to final table and get quite a good result there,” he reflects, humbly playing down the run he’s enjoyed in the past year. 

When asked about his strategies for maintaining consistent results, Endersby focuses on the importance of both a technical and mental game. 

“There are definitely a lot of technical things that I would like to work on for my game but I also try to keep the mental side pretty solid so that my performance can stay constant,” he explains.

Despite his incredible achievements, Endersby remains grounded and “an all-round nice guy” as his friends describe him.  “I just love playing the game so I try to play as best as I can … it’s great that I get a lot of support from friends and the online community.”

Turning to his preparation for major tournaments, Endersby sheds light on his online sessions where he will share strategies with friends and a little on his mental game. He admits that his physical fitness occasionally lapses, but “I just make sure I’m relaxed and having fun and try to keep that going the whole time.”
