All About Me
I teach poker professionally and can help detect the "leaks or holes" in your game in short order. As Dean at PokerSchoolOnline (before they sold it to PokerStars), I also taught and wrote course curriculum. I've authored the "Poker Journal" at and, and I teach live (currently at Delaware Park). I play online occasionally, mostly with my members at a particular site (see below), and provide them with over 100 freerolls a month for cash and prizes, without them depositing a dime. Competition is fierce, they want to work on their game, and do with pride.

Thanks to those members at OTR who skype'd in this am and got a 2 for 1 bonus, as I did two double sit n go's (back to back), so they could pick my brain, I could shed light on the strategies to use and more.


Both players doubled their money and I hope everyone that attended enjoyed the nearly 2 hour session.

New Stud Event Every Sunday, Come Join Us

I had the first Stud MTT this am and will repeat again next Sunday at 9am.  If we fill two tables or more (16+ players), I will again be a bounty, this time $10 to the winner.  Pass this along, no password needed.  Also, I've asked Robin to move it off the private tab and put it in the lobby so anyone could join from the MERGE Network (if they can see it listed that is).
