Poker Coach

I have worked with hundreds of students on a variety of games and become known as one of the top coaches in online poker. I am responsible for a large number of online pros, and I believe that almost anyone can play poker for a living if they are willing to study and put their mind in to it.  I am as proud of the success of his students as I am of my own winnings.

In the past, I have also written for Deal magazine, the twoplustwo online magazine, Poker Pro Magazine and multiple websites including PokerSoftware.com and Blind Straddle Online Magazine as well as being featured in CardPlayer.  I have been a regular feature on the front page of pocketfives.com since it’s inception and his piece on bankroll management remains their most popular article nearly seven years after it’s publication.

Video Training

I worked with Real Poker Training when they pioneered the screen capture video training that has become the norm for online poker training sites, and served as the head cash game instructor at PokerXFactor.com. I am currently very proud to be creating training content for IveyLeague.com, the training side of Team Ivey and Ivey Poker. Working with current students, I often make training videos based on their recorded sessions or hand histories and many of my students find this to be an very efficient way to learn.
