Las Vegas live cash game pro
Paul Chen's Biography
Paul was introduced to poker by a good friend during a late night out in Atlantic City. He initially sat down at a $1/$2 NL table in Harrah’s and after realizing that poker was a game as dynamic as chess and not a game strictly of chance, Paul began studying poker and game theory intensively while playing online at Full Tilt and playing live in Atlantic City.
Unlike most poker players, Paul learned to play poker at a relatively late age of 25, having graduated college and working at a full-time job. Paul graduated from Penn State where he received his Bachelors in biology. He then began his professional career as a research scientist working at the beginning of drug discovery for GlaxoSmithKline in Philadelphia. He also has a MBA from Wake Forest University, and is currently involved with a sports analytics startup based in Philadelphia.
Paul has years of experience playing live cash game poker in Atlantic City, and later on at Parx and Harrah’s when poker appeared in Philadelphia suburbs. When the opportunity presented itself, Paul decided to take the plunge and become a cash game pro in Tunica, MS and later on in Las Vegas, NV.
Paul hopes to use his years of experience on the felt to help students at Ivey League learn the many nuances of live cash game poker in the low to mid-stakes levels. He believes that each hand should start with a plan, and every single action should have a purpose.
You can find Paul grinding the low to mid-stakes cash games anywhere from $1/$2 NL to $5/$10 NL at Caesar’s Palace, Aria, Bellagio, or Wynn in Las Vegas. When he’s not grinding at the tables, you can usually find him blowing off steam at any of the clubs in Wynn, working out at Las Vegas Athletic Club, or hiking at Red Rock.
