Bencb789Head Coach
For quite some time our coach Bencb has been offering Tournament Poker Coaching as well as Sit & Go coaching. His skill level in online tournament and Sit & Go poker is world class. In addition to countless 5-digit tournament cashes, he also has won both SCOOP and WCOOP events. He beat the possibly hardest field in poker history in the $102,000 WCOOP Super High Roller. His consistency is impressive. In the years 2013, 2014 and 2015 he was always top 10 in the Sharkscope Sit & Go Leaderboard, finishing first in 2015. In 2016 he focused more on MTT’s and appeared in the (super-) high-roller tournaments for the first time. He achieved a strong 6th place finish in the SCOOP $25,000 Highroller as well as winning the aforementioned $102,000 WCOOP Super Highroller.

In poker, I followed the same path as many others. First I played home games with friends, then I got into some strategy content at PokerStrategy. Four years later I began take my studies more seriously. I than became a coach after I signed a contract with Buckingham mnl1337, this forced me to go deep into poker. I also author educational content for PokerStrategy and look forward to continue developing my thinking and approach to poker.

Michael is a low stakes professional currently playing mainly hyper SNGs. He began playing poker in 2005 with friends and quickly transitioned to playing online MTTs. He began playing for a living around 2009, playing mainly on Pokerstars and Fulltilt, however he didn’t take the game seriously until about 2012. He then switched to cash games, got a coach and began to study. He switched back to MTTs for a few years, before teaming up with Bencb to learn the SNG hyper format in late 2015. His years of play/study/being coached have allowed him to develop a solid understanding of longterm winning strategies in NLH. He is of the mindset that in order to continually beat the games you must constantly improve and stay sharp. This includes leading a healthy lifestyle off the tables. He feels his biggest weakness is still a lacking the full commitment and sacrifice required to break through to the mid/high stakes games. He has been taking the right steps towards these goals by immersing himself in communities like this in order to stay engaged and motivated. He looks forward to being able to contribute and be part of a solid group of players with the likeminded goals of evolution and success. Outside of the tables Michael’s hobbies include weight training, hockey, golfing, skateboarding, and anything else that helps to keep him in shape. He is also an huge MMA fan, and is developing a keen interest in world politics/history.

My name is Tomy and I’m from Slovenia. I have been playing poker professionally for 5 years now. In the beginning I was playing heads up/6max cash short stacked. Last year I decided that I must move forward and take my game to the next level. I joined a program coached by Bencb for 6max hyper turbos. Ben really elevated my poker game and I can easily say that this was one of my best decisions in life. I was playing 15-30$ buy-in 6max hypers on Pokerstars until last summer when they decided to leave my country. So I had to adapt to other sites and now i’m playing 6max turbo and regular speed SNGs. To conclude my only piece of advice for people who want to start playing poker more seriously or guys who just hate losing money at the tables: find a program that suits you most and have a good mentor!
Good luck at the tables!
