Teaching since:

I am currently a semi-professional poker player as I am pursuing a Masters of Engineering degree at Cornell University. Before attending Cornell I was located in the Las Vegas area where I played poker for a living. I was making $50/hr playing $1/2 and $2/3 with just a few months of study and commitment.

I first developed a liking to Poker while playing with a few friends at parties or casually. This interest slowly developed into an obsession which prompted me to pursue this as a full time career rather than a hobby. Poker is not a Short term oriented game but a game fundamentally based on getting an edge which has fruitful implications over the long term.

One common misconception is that Poker is all about luck! Of course, luck is a major element, but over the long term you can overcome the short term variance and come out as a big winner! Being a full time poker player is a realistic career choice. With just a few months of studying and practice you could be making up to $100/hr playing poker online from the comfort of your home.

I teach poker to students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to learn basic poker rules and theory as well as more advanced concepts which include Game Theory. My course will be customized to each student depending on their goals and experience levels.

As a semi-professional poker player I frequently take trips to local card rooms in the New York area as well as Las Vegas when school permits. I love to mentor students who have a strong passion to take their game to the next level. I want to enable poker enthusiasts of all backgrounds to take a shot at understanding this great game of No limit Hold'em and eventually help them achieve their poker dreams.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better poker player!
