The gist of my poker life can be found by reading my deucescracked coach bio. But I'll try to give you a little bit more here.
I'm a Â 24 year old professional poker player (and new deucescracked video instructor / coach). I mostly play mid-high stakes SnGs on FTP and Stars and a bit of HUSNGS and HU and 6max cash when I can with the occasional MTTs.
I have spent practically my entire life living in South Florida. I was a high-school drop out at 16 and I opened my first business (a very small recording studio) and moved out of my parents house shortly after. I have been on my own ever since. Â I worked odd jobs but mostly came up with hustles to get by and pay bills. I've always hated the idea of working for someone, especially at "normal" hourlies. Right before I started playing poker I was earning my money by gambling in pool halls and trying to get a design and print company off the ground.Â
When I'm not playing poker I like to play pool, although I really haven't been in much action in the last few years. Aside from that I'm just a toned down version of any other 24 year old. I don't like to party as much but I do like going out to bars, watching the fights with friends, etc and just enjoying life as a 24yo poker pro in South Florida.
I've been one of the laziest full-time players in history, I'm sure, often taking weeks off at a time and coming back to the games after spending most of my money. I've been working on improving my mind-set when it comes to putting in the time to play in and I'll definitely be looking to the videos here on DC for help as well as seeking help from my fellow DC Coaches.Â
Coaching is something I have been doing over the last year with pretty good success. I really have a passion for learning and teaching the game. I've worked with quite a few players and am really proud of the results they have shown after working with me. Here are a few examples:
Killab101 (FTP) was actually one of my close friends and I moved him into the 2 bedroom apartment I was staying at to coach him for a few months. He did not play a single hand of poker before I started teaching him. Completely ground up.Â
Slideby (PS) wasÂ referredÂ to me by one of my peers. I started working with him a bit after game 7,500. I still work with slideby to this day and he is one of my favorite students and I'm happy to call him a friend.Â
Well, It's 9:30pm now and I have 30Â minutesÂ to shower, dress and show up for a movie date at 10pm. Oops.
