My name is Richard Jenkins and I am the owner of howtoplaypokerinfo.com. I recently finished my PhD in mechanical and manufacturing engineering and am an author of a number of academic papers.
I have been playing poker since I was 18 and never took it more seriously than playing part-time. I was only able to play full-time during the summer months, University always took precedence over hitting the felt.
Given my ability to analyse data, teach and my love of poker I decided to start this website to help complete beginners learn the basics and beyond.
My results from 2015 (approx 400 hours play with $17,000 net winnings):
Since then, I have been dabbling in cash games and tournaments making some nice profits given the time invested.
I don’t claim to be a world-beater, but I am well qualified to give my thoughts on some of the basics of poker and help new players find their feet in the poker world.
Good luck at the tables and any questions feel free to contact me.
