I teach and play poker extensively. Winning at poker is a lot more than luck. It is about the skill of reading people, understanding incentives, math, and storytelling. When this all makes sense, you can win regularly in poker. I'll teach you how to win, and win consistently.

Joshua is the most amazing teacher that we have ever met. His teaching style opened my daughter's eyes wide to figure out what the real public speaking stands for.

Private Poker Teacher

I have played a lot of on-line Texas Hold-Em. My biggest take was a 12k win. I understand the game from the basics to the more advanced techniques. THIS IS TEXAS HOLD 'EM ONLY.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, with a few years behind me; I'm ready to pass on what I have learned. At the risk of tooting my own horn; I am well trained, professionally, both as an actor and a teacher with more than a few credentials to support those claims. I invite you to please peruse my background on the site and feel free to ask any questions you desire.

Regarding Texas Hold 'em (poker), I have been playing and teaching the game, and working for online casinos for over thirty years. My approach is simple, requires extreme discipline, but I can show you how to win mo

re than you lose. And this is true of all subjects I teach whether literal or figurative.

My undergraduate Bachelors is in Acting & Directing I was taught by the same professors who launched the students that formed the now famous Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago (Illinois State University); I also have a Masters degree in Theatre History and Criticism (Theatrical Critical Theory). I have teaching experience both as a GA and in the private sector. I have been exposed to many different types of teaching styles and locales, (i.e. classroom, studio et.al). I hope that gives you a thumbnail concurrently I hope I didn't bore you to death.

Peace and Kindest Regards,
Randy

Randy is a first rate coach. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and with an easy going natural style. Was very adaptable to my level of experience and was patient - no question was too dumb. I highly recommend him without any reservation. I have already booked my next session.

I've used Athan for several lessons now and he's become a friend. Happy to write this review for him (though I secretly don't want other players to get the same coaching :)). I can't recommend him enough as he's saved me tons of money and has made me much more. Athan is so smart and analytical. I already knew how to play before we started but I wasn't winning much if at all, in my home games and in casinos both in cash games and in tournaments. Athan came with a completely custom lesson plan and helped break apart how to think about the game in general, how to play players, the math, specific leaks/weak spots, and different situations. Just try one lesson and I think you'll see the same.

Private Poker Teacher

Experienced poker player of 6 years with over 50k in live earnings. Specializing in 1/2 and 2/5 cash game strategy as well as low-mid stakes tournament strategy. Lessons are designed and created around the student's goals, bankroll, and base knowledge of the game as a starting point. I will help you to understand the math behind decisions, average player tendencies at these stakes, and how to manage your money to be a long term winner at No Limit Texas Holdem'

About Zachary

I am a semi-professional poker player with 6 years of experience in low-mid stakes cash games and tournaments. After having multiple 4 and 5 figure scores on the felt, I feel I am qualified to help you on your poker journey to do the same. I am an avid student of the game and believe that studying is the only way to truly stay ahead of the curb. However, IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE BORING! Long gone are the days where monotone poker pros make you listen to their 8 hour podcast full of difficult math and impossible-to-understand jargon. I break down the math with you, offer new lines of thinking, and will help you make more winning plays in the long run.

I teach anyone who is willing to learn, from beginner to intermediate. We cover any poker related topic you want to know more about, from bankroll management to tournament final table strategy

. The only question left is, do you want to get that big win?

Zach was really knowledgeable and an easy guy to learn from. I just shipped my first tournament win over 5k and I have him to thank for it

Alex
I play low stakes online tourneys and couldn’t seem to make a profit. After a few hours talking over strategy with Zach I started to cash every other tournament! Its definitely worth the money

"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."
