Poker Coaching with Brett Jungblut: 1 on 1 Poker Training Sessions
Brett 'gank' Jungblut was born on February 28, 1979 in New Jersey's famous gambling mecca Atlantic City to parents who were avid poker players and named him after Brett Maverick from the popular poker TV show Maverick.
Brett who already established himself as one of the top online poker pros, gained international recognition when he won the WSOP 2004 Omaha 8 or better world championship with a buy-in of $5,000 and a first place prize of $186,000.
Brett Jungblut's rise to stardom came as a member of the famous Crew who together took 'The Poker World by Storm' in 2004. ESPN's coverage of the crew during their famous run in the World Series of Poker in 2004 was well documented. The bracelet Brett won followed fellow Crew member Scott Fischman's 2 bracelets in no-limit holdem and HORSE, and Dutch Boyd's 2nd place finish to TJ Cloutier in Razz after Dutch had made a deep run in the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event. ESPN coverage at the World Series of Poker recognized the beginning of the online poker youth movement into professional live tournament poker.
The crew was a group of guys who lived together in LA and each helped coach each other to get better at poker through practice and critique. The crew's popularity even landed them in Rolling Stones Magazine under the title Poker's New World Order. Since then, Dutch Boyd won a bracelet in 6-handed No-Limit Holdem in 2006 heads-up match against the reigning 2005 main event champion Joe Hachem, and crew member Joe Bartholdi won the World Poker Tour $25,000 main event for $3,760,165.
These pictures of Brett Jungblut are of him at the WSOP playing against David Pham, against a nun, with Doyle Brunson, with Annie Duke, and with his famous dread locks. During the 2005 WSOP TV coverage, ESPN showed a clip where the very fashionable Marcel Luske and David Plastik cut his dreadlocks and they picked out a $1,700 suit for Brett to wear to the main event.
Brett Jungblut has dozens of WSOP cashes and over $400,000 in lifetime live tournament play, some would even say "Gank Owns". Bluff Magazine Radio called Brett Jungblut the most prolific online poker player today, and he continues to make an impact in online poker by dominating multi-table tournaments and as a poker coach. Brett's down to earth style has been a positive influence to online poker's growth by speaking his mind on issues regarding online poker.
