"Athan provided first rate poker instruction for our family members ranging in age from 11-50. He started us on the basics and after a few lessons it became one of our favorite family games. We would play on our own and then review our games with him. He answered all of our questions and gave excellent advice on play. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn this dynamic game."
