"I purchased a lesson with Athan as a Christmas gift and received RAVE reviews from his student about the experience! He loved the interaction and the way Athan was able to tailor the lesson very specifically to hone certain skills. Athan was extremely professional, easy to interact with and overall a great instructor. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve his/her poker playing.!!"

"Randy is excellent. His character transcends the need for a review like this, but the fact is, he made it awesome to fight for my first poker lesson over the past two weeks. We haven’t gotten in the software yet, but his exemplary stewardship and expertise has proven a greater boon to me than the best intentions of my initial efforts."
