Before playing poker Max Silver was employed as a professional video gaming journalist.
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.
