RecPoker | Ep 253 – Jonathan Little on exploiting low stakes tournaments

By Steve Fredlund
March 10, 2021

Jonathan Little was a student at the University of West Florida studying psychology when he began playing poker with friends. As his interest in poker grew, it led him to study many books on poker. After earning an initial bankroll of $35,000 online over a six-month period, he decided to drop out of college and play poker professionally. He has become a well-known player, author, coach, and ambassador of the game, creating and leading pokercoaching.com. Jonathan is a great friend of RecPoker and we continue to be excited about our future together
