Athan is a great instructor. He's patient, methodical, and adaptive. We had him for a group lesson, and he made learning poker super fun and easy to understand for us newbies. Even my husband, who is a seasoned pro, said he got a lot out of it. Highly recommend!

These lessons paid themselves off in spades 🙂. Athan charges a pretty high rate but it’s easily worth it.

I have been a winning poker player at a competitive level for approximately 15 years and have numerous accomplishments in both live and online tournaments. I specialize in beginner and intermediate and catered to the needs of each student. From home games with family and friends or playing in a casino, I can show the ropes and feel more confident before sitting down at a table. Ask me anything!

About Cedrric
I am a semi-professional poker player specializing in both cash games and tournaments. When not on the felt I can be found working a traditional 9-5 as a vice-president for a financial services company. I graduated from St. Mary's University with a Bachelors in Mathematics.

Poker students can expect to improve week to week in their game skills. Every poker game is unique and players need to acclimate to their game quickly. I teach students the math behind the game, game etiquette, and most importantly how to become a winning player.

I teach poker students of all different ages and experience levels. I have studied the game for the last 15 years. Playing locally, nationally, and internationally I have expertise in home games, online games, and large casino tournaments.

I love the game of poker not just for the money but because of the
social aspect of the game. I have met some of the most interesting and successful people in my life on the felt. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better cardplayer!

I will help you develop a strategy that works for you. No made pre flop ranges. Not trying to impose you the way I play the game. Poker is a very complex game and understanding your context is very important to build a profitable and comfortable strategy for you. The initial step of my program is to identify your current level and limitations, including agressiveness, bankroll, objectives and slowly introducing concepts that will change your game (Forever) without making you risk more than you should.
Ps.: I am specialized in Live cash games.

About Bruno
Hello my name is Bruno and I simply LOVE POKER. I am a semi pro player (I play part time) but every time I play I want to crush the tables. It was not always like that and before working hard on my game I was a big loser so I know exactly what does it take to fine tune your game and turn you into a winner. A warning: You have to do the work. My lessons are as easy as it can be, but just understanding a concept does not means you are able to apply it. You need to do the exercises to drill it and more important: Put it in practice.

Want to be The Best Poker Player on the table? Want to crush your opponents and earn a living playing a game you love? Then you have come to the right place! I have over 3 years of experience playing live as well as online at low/mid-level stakes.

For Beginners: The would be to first build a strong foundation of poker theory which would include studying charts, understanding bankroll management and Poker Theory.

For Intermediate/Advanced: This will involve studying betting patterns, understanding betting ranges, odds, the mental game etc. I will give you guidance to help you improve your game by watching you play online and sharing poker hand histories!

Shoot me a message if you think we could be a suitable match!

About Jai
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 w
inner! 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!
