Max Silver is a young pro poker player, and is undoubtedly one
of the UK Poker Scene's rising stars. Max Silver also writes a blog
about his poker experiences, and has been interviewed on two
occasions by RakeTheRake.
At the age of fifteen, Max was taught Texas Hold'em by his
grandfather and would play frequent cash games with his friends.
Max deposited $50 into an online poker account on his 18th
Birthday, and quickly lost it all. After a period of ups and downs
Max has enjoyed great success to the extent that he has not had to
make another deposit since.
Max Silver has also enjoyed success in live poker: in 2010 he
finished first in both the EPT in London and the UKIPT Main Event,
Dublin. He split his time between live and online poker, and
typically plays up to 50 hours a week - making time to study
strategy and improve his game.
Interesting Fact: Before playing poker Max Silver was
employed as a professional video gaming journalist.
