The Heads Up Sit and Go Podcast: Episode 001

From Teacher to 6-Figure Grinder with Paul ‘Cog Dis’ Collins




Not too long ago, Paul was a school teacher making $2,000 a month.

Then he started playing heads up sit and gos part time, grinding the micro stake games. Eventually, he began making $400 a month playing the $5.00 games. And that was just the begining.

“It was unbelievable that I can make money from playing a game…”

Fast forward to today: Paul has been playing professionally for nearly 7 years and has broken the 6-figure mark on both Full Tilt and Pokerstars, having crushed regular speed games, turbos and now hyper turbos.

In this episode of the Heads Up Sit and Go Podcast, you’ll learn:



 – How poker allowed Paul to move to the tropical paradise of Bali, build a villa, and have the freedom to spend time with his kids. He explains it as having:

“A nice lifestyle in a really cool country, and a lot of time with my family.”

 – How he told his wife that he was going to buy a house with his poker winnings.

“I told my wife that I was going to save up 20,000 for a deposit on a house and it was gonna come from poker. She laughed in my face and thought I was completely insane and that it would never happen. Eventually I did get the deposit just by playing poker, which was cool.”

– How he virtually predicted Black Friday.

“I could actually feel [Black Friday] coming, and I had been telling my friends to get their money offline..”

– How he nearly got stuck having to pay $10,000 for 1 hour of coaching.

– Paul also gives his opinion on the new Spin and Go format, and much, much more.

Here are a few EPIC pictures of his Villa….
