A Common Preflop Mistake

By | Articles | No Comments

I was recently told about a hand from a $1,000 buy-in tournament that illustrates a fundamental mistake that many amateurs are unaware they are making.  With blinds at 800/1,600 with a 200 ante, a loose, but straightforward player raised to 4,000 out of his 56,000 effective stack. A tight player called in the cutoff. Our Hero decided to reraise to 14,000 with 9-9. Read More

My 10 Most Influential Poker Players

By | Long Posts | 5 Comments

In this blog post, I am going to share with you (in no particular order) 10 pros who had a huge impact on my poker career. Some were private coaches and I battled others on the felt, but all left a positive lasting impression on me.

David Benefield

David “Raptor” Benefield was my first online poker friend. I used to lurk on an old poker forum and one day I posted that I was “jcardshark”, the unknown guy who was tearing up the $215 buy-in sit n’ go’s on PartyPoker. David, one of the most popular online players of the time, messaged me and asked if I wanted to talk strategy on AIM, which of course I did. We became great friends and talked through AIM basically every day for three years while we grinded the sit n’ go’s. David was one of the first people to do what was thought to be impossible: play 4 tables at the same time. I quickly followed suit. He then moved to 16 tables and I did the same. I seemed to always be one step behind him, but that was fine because he was (and still is) ten steps ahead of everyone else.

Do Not Be Afraid to Gamble

By | Articles | No Comments

I recently witnessed a hand in a $1,500 buy-in live event that I think illustrates a key concept that many amateurs never fully grasp. With blinds at 2,000/4,000 with a 500 ante, a loose, aggressive player raised to 8,500 out of his 100,000 stack from the hijack seat, a player with 85,000 called from the cutoff, a player with 80,000 called from the button, and then the small blind went all-in for 45,000.

2017 Wrap Up + 2018 Goals

By | Long Posts | 31 Comments

2017

I had no clue what to expect going into 2017. My first child, James, arrived on 12/24/2016. I didn’t play poker at all during the first quarter of 2017 order to stay home and help him through his first few months of life. During that time, I grinded hard on my newest book Mastering Small Stakes No-Limit Hold’em. Both James and the book turned out great.

I knew I was going to play less poker in 2017 than I ever have since going pro. However, when I had the chance to play poker, it went reasonably well. I made the final table of a $1,500 buy-in WSOP shootout event and took 2nd in a $10,000 buy-in high roller event for $175,000. I also had two close calls at the World Poker Tour championship that could have easily gone differently. I profited about $100,000 from tournaments, which is a reasonable 50% ROI, given I only played about $200,000 worth of buy-ins. That said, it could have easily gone much better or much worse. There is a lot of variance in tournaments! Read More
