I play most forms of poker, including Omaha, Razz, and Stud, but my personal expertise is with everyone's favorite game: Texas Hold'em. I'm happy to answer any questions about the rules of the game or strategy... but save your bad beat stories for your mama. :)

Experience in the area

I have been playing all kinds of poker since I was a kid, but I've played in the casinos and online since 2002. And while I'm not a full-time "poker pro" I have made a lot more money playing Hold'em than I've lost.


Aside from personal experience, I have studied most of the great poker players' books, such as Doyle Brunson's Super Systems, Phil Gordon's Little [insert color here] Books, David Sklansky's Theory of Poker, and I even suffered through Helmuth's book (just kidding - I enjoyed it).
