Read information about the authorI was always fascinated with poker. I read a small book or two about poker long before I got a chance to play the game. Then, in 2004, a friend told me I could play poker online. I decided to investigate.
I knew little about poker at that point. I bought a stack of books on Limit Hold'em, joined a poker forum, and began to learn the game. I worked hard. I deposited $300, which I lost rather quickly in $.50/$1 Limit Hold’em games. I decided to try one more $300 poker experiment. That one bore fruit. The hard work began to pay off, and I built a nice bankroll for the Limit Hold'em games. Since my hourly rate playing poker was double that of my entry-level, nine-to-five job, playing poker professionally seemed the best option for me. I became a professional poker player in the summer of 2005. From there, I played nearly a million hands of Limit Hold’em and experienced good results.
In early 2007, after a short break from the tables, I set aside $300 to explore No-Limit Hold’em. Never interested in no-limit, I heard good things about that form of poker. Fortunately, my limit experience helped me transition easily to no-limit. I started grinding no-limit games and worked my way up the stakes. I found I really enjoyed no-limit. In five months, I turned the $300 into $30,000. Since then, I have been playing No-Limit Hold’em as my main game.
As I write, I have played approximately eight million hands of poker. Playing professionally for over seven years, I provide the sole income for a family of five.
In early 2009, I started offering personal poker coaching and producing poker-training videos for dragthebar.com. I enjoy helping others develop poker skills. I write books in the sincere hope players improve their game. I bet they will.
