Coach Joel's Credentials:


About Coach Joel

It took me five years to successfully climb from 1/2 NLHE to 10/25 NLHE and start my own coaching practice (read more about my poker career here). I am now certain that trial and error takes significantly longer than just having a proper guide from the beginning.

My goal is to distill everything I have learned with maximum efficiency while making the learning process fun. I have worked with nearly 200 students, many of whom have gone on to substantially increase their cash game win rates or win major tournaments. They also report feeling more confident in their abilities to make good decisions, manage stress, and lead happier lives. Ultimately I want to help all students become the best versions of themselves, both on and off the felt, through coaching and mentorship.
