My name is Jae and I am a new addition to the Deuces Cracked video/coaching team. You can look forward to some original tournament videos, coaching at fair rates, and frequent strategy advice in the DC Tournament forum.
I got the call from Joe Tall a few weeks ago and the excitement is still sort of wearing off. I still remember being a developing player watching KRANTZ and whitelime's videos on DC, along with their hilarious prop bets, and desiring their carefree but baller lifestyle. I saw DC members such as Hielko blossom into coaches themselves and provide inspiration for aspiring grinders like me. It's pretty high on the corny cliche meter but I never imagined I'd have the chance to one day make videos for this very site.
For the short term, I want to become involved with this community and help tournament players make the same steps I did. I'm also looking forward to a big World Series of Poker. I'm going to spend a month there playing many of the NLHE events. After that, I will probably relocate outside of the USA until poker becomes legal on a federal level or in California. We will see what the future holds.
Here's what you can expect from my blog:
- - Juicy tournament content with a lot of strategy talk! (when I can actually play)
- - Sporadic updating!
- - Mellifluous language from an English Major! (what else would I use this worthless degree on?)
Here is a picture of me so you can easily visualize the man you will take this glorious journey with:ÂPlease don't be alarmed by the mean look, the romantic lighting, the poor quality of the camera, or the unhealthy meal on my plate.
