I played poker professionally for 5 years. I can teach introductory concepts including the importance of position, bet sizing, odds and probability, and concepts related to reading opponents.

Michael is patient with my "noob" questions and he seems genuinely happy to teach others. Glad to have him as a teacher!

I have a winning strategy, however so difficult to maintain for myself! I believe dedicated students can top me after instruction. I am an interesting person. I am a major music composer and a computer programming expert. I have always been fascinated with poker, so many life lessons!
