About Dylan

I grew up in Austin, Texas (with dual U.S./Australian citizenship) playing all forms of poker. These years of live experience were very useful (especially for reading players in brick-and-mortar casinos and underground card rooms) but not enough to become an expert poker player or "card shark." Therefore, I actively studied the game (as well as chess and go) in great detail: strategy and tactics, psychology, player-profiling, game theory essentials, poker math, etc. Since 1999, I’ve played live fixed-limit, pot-limit and no-limit cash games and tournaments (primarily Texas Hold 'em, 7-Card Stud, Omaha and occasionally 5-Card Draw/Stud) at casinos and card rooms throughout the U.S., Central and South America, Spain, Germany and Australia. Since 2008, I’ve also been playing at multiple online casinos and have seen well over 850K hands in virtually all cash-game and tournament variants provided as of April 2011. Whenever and wherever possible, I enjoy reviewing and analyzing hands with fellow poker experts. Additionally, I’m a member of various poker-strategy websites and forums, which has been invaluable for my game, not only for the acquisition of new information and perspectives, but also and especially for learning how the competition thinks (or doesn’t think) at the respective limits. Here at Winner In A Week, my brother and I are very glad to share all of this information and many tools with you in a concise form that will bring your game to the next level in the shortest amount of time. Enjoy!
