Hey, I'm Bartek

I love poker, reading books, keeping my mind occupied and helping others, so I came up with an idea to connect my interests and created this website.

Reading and writing about poker books and strategies helped me improve my game. Hence, I want to share my extensive knowledge to help you move your game to the next level.

Why should You read this blog?

Studying poker is as important as playing it. However, if you select the wrong learning resources, you will waste your time and money. The same is true for playing. If you sit at the wrong table, there is a high chance you will be going home broke. Table and studying materials selections are crucial. 

By reviewing books, software, courses and writing about strategies, I want to help you:

If you have ever asked yourself the following questions:

  • How can I improve my game?
  • What is the best way for me to study poker? 
  • What is the best poker book? 
  • Which poker book should I choose? 
  • What is the best poker course, training site, and software? 

Then this website is for You!

Why am I doing this?

  • Because it makes me happy
  • I want YOU to become a better player. It would be really fulfilling to see one of my followers winning a major tournament
  • Perhaps one day, this can become my full-time job
  • I want to become a better player

My Poker Background

I am a semi-pro poker player and have been playing since 2010, and as per my latest calculations, I am currently a ‘break even’ MTT player, which is the poker format I enjoy the most. As you know, when it comes to the tournaments, ROI can change anytime, so hopefully, I will be soon updating this part :).

Though, I am a winning player in other poker games.

Here is a short overview of my poker results for the past ten years: 

  • Sattellites – winning player
  • Cash Games – winning player
  • Zoom – losing 
  • S&G – winning
  • MTT – break even 

For a long time, I specialized mainly in satellites (especially Sunday Million). Nowadays, I play cash because it is hard to commit a few undisturbed hours to a tournament with my recently born son.

Below you can see a sample of my old Sunday Million satellite results, also some other small cashes:

Short Life Story

I was born in Poland, also lived for seven years in Ireland. I got my Master’s degrees in both countries and spent one year on a student exchange program in Germany.

Currently, I live in Vienna, together with my wife, son and a dog, Pongo (in the picture, studying human’s body language).
