Hello my name is Derek and this is my poker blog. My brother is Pauly, the insane mind behind the Tao of Poker. He taught me how to play and now I'm kicking his ass in heads up play. I hope to share my experiences as a new player to the poker scene.
I am in my late 20s and live in New York City, where I work for a major insurance company on Wall Street. I like to play at Foxwoods in Connecticut and the Excalibur in Las Vegas. I recently started playing online at Party Poker.
