Greg Brooks: Poker Player Profile

2011-03-05 10:02 by Olsdog

After winning the 2011 LAPC Main Event and a $1.6 million prize, Greg "MYNAMEIZGREG" Brooks is one of the hottest poker players on the planet. But even with his big win, Brooks isn't exactly a household name right now, so here's a little look at his poker credentials.

The first thing to note about Brooks is that he's mainly an online poker grinder. Brooks started playing cash games at Party Poker while he was in college at Wake Forest University. After spending a few months grinding online and receiving poker coaching, Brooks managed to earn $25k in one month at Party Poker .

Eventually, Brooks parlayed his success into becoming a high stakes player at the $25/$50 and $50/$100 limits in NL Hold'em. Brooks can still be found in some of the high stakes online poker games today.

Brooks has also done some coaching in the past too after opening a site called LeggoPoker. And one thing's clear now: with the 2011 LA Poker Classic victory under his belt, Brooks is certainly going to have a lot more students coming his way!
