About Winner In A Week

The Carder Brothers began playing serious poker over three decades ago in their hometown of Austin, Texas. Mastering all the different advanced poker strategies per game type (Omaha, 7-Card Stud, 5-Card Draw and Stud) quickly became a passion … from “dealer’s choice” home games, to underground card rooms, to big Texas Hold ’em cash games and tournaments online and at brick-and-mortar casinos on four continents … we have had an incredibly fun ride!

A few years ago, at the request of friends, Dylan began compiling his 20+ years of experience and extensive research and study in an easily understandable form. The result is our comprehensive video series entitled Essential Poker Knowledge: The Art of Poker, which contains the information and means you’ll need to dominate the great majority of home games as well as have a huge edge over the majority of the competition you’ll face both online and live.

To help you win big at the poker tables, Dylan has also created many pro poker tools: key stats overviews, starting-hands charts, expected-value analyses, bankroll management calculators, and much more.

All this, along with an ever-growing amount of poker-strategy articles, coaching videos and real-time recordings of online sessions, poker hand analyses, and even a free membership that provides you with advanced cash-game and tournament strategies to take your game to the next level is what we’re glad to share with you here so that you can become a winner in the broadest sense of the term and in the shortest amount of time … both on and off the felt.
