Adam, our resident poker guru, has extensive knowledge on both sides of the table. When he’s not playing on US poker sites, you will find him busy revising strategies to give him an edge over his opponents. He is also a firm believe that poker allows individuals to grow intellectually. He isn’t too sure if the game would necessarily make you a better investor, for example, but he has experienced the positive effects of becoming more intimately familiar with poker.
And so, there is room for improvement Adam believes and his texts are always on point and an extension of popular poker wisdom and knowledge. He has put a lot of effort into studying the game as a purely intellectual exercise, which has proven – admittedly – a bit of a tough nut to crack.
Yet, inspired by the best in the field, Adam has kept at it and in a time, he has arrived at a simple Freudian truth – challenges give meaning to life. And so, he has decided to put a significant effort in helping others catch themselves up and meet the highest standards of poker. A bit of a dab hand himself, Adam is active in several real money cardrooms, which he frequents not only for the sake of a review, but also to test strategies.
He is a firm believer that poker remains a game of skill even if there has been some heated debate about the depth of the game. True, some skill may play in the background, but that uncertainty factor only affects level at the very entry level.
Outside of poker, Adam loves board games and he believes they hone very close to poker. There is depth, experience and strategy to be learned. He is also a huge fan of Hearthstone, something he has in common with Daniel Negreanu, and he plays Magic: The Gathering about as competitively as he feels about poker.
