Content Manager


James first got into poker in 2005 as a Physics student at Imperial College, London. More interested in poker math than lecture classes, he started taking trips to the International, Western Club and Vic Casino for tourneys and live cash games.

After graduating James moved to Thailand. He’s helped many poker players on the forums with questions about moving to the city and getting set up to grind online.

His favorite games now include low stakes Limit Hold’em & HORSE on PartyPoker & PokerStars, from $0.50/$1 to $2/$4.

Away from work James enjoys studying Thai, scuba diving, sports with the poker community in the city, and travelling around Asia.
