Ivan Potocki transitioned to poker writing after playing more or less full-time for about five years. He first discovered poker while studying English Language and Literature at the University of Sarajevo. What started with freerolls and micro-stakes games led to a love for poker, opening gates to a whole different world.
After finishing his studies and receiving his BA, he started to look for ways to merge his two big passions, writing and poker. Small, short-term gigs with several smaller poker blogs and websites gradually led to bigger opportunities, eventually landing him in the world of poker reporting.
Today, Ivan writes for a number of poker media outlets including, of course, Cardplayer Lifestyle.
