About Michael (fydor_8)

I’ve been specializing in Heads-Up Sit and Gos since 2008, grinding from my dorm room while going to university and playing baseball as an NCAA scholarship athlete.

I began by grinding the micros, slowly moving my way up through the levels as my bankroll grew. I was a well known regular and heads-up sit and go coach, playing the $220 turbos on Full Tilt when Black Friday struck…

At the time, I had just graduated in with an undergrad in sports management, so I decided to pursue grad school in 2011 to obtain my MBA.

After graduation, I accepted a job with a sports agency and began representing professional athletes. I also worked for companies such as Nike Canada.

After moving back to Canada, I found my way back to online poker in 2014. You can now find me playing hyper turbos on Pokerstars and coaching heads-up sit and go players from all over the world.

My coaching videos have become very popular and I’ve been featured on websites like HUSNG.com and CardsChat.com.

I truly believe that ANYONE can accomplish what I have.

Two of my former students have gone pro…who’s next?
