'Monkey' left his last 'paying' job in 2004, and has been playing poker tourneys for a living ever since...mainly as a low and medium stakes grinder. His blogging posts have been a hit too and 'Monkey' is anything but your typical poker writer. He refuses to bore the reader with tired poker phrases and talk about hand play that makes for good reading if it's late at night and you're looking for sleep aids. Numerous poker room managers have found 'suggestions' from the 'Monkey' on how to run their tournaments as a reason to ban him from their events. There is no denying it: Monkey is outspoken, opinionated, blunt, abrasive, brash, and mercurial...people either love him....or they hate him!
