7 Year-Old is Conquering Poker

Ask many of the best online poker players what they did as a 7 year-old, and they’ll tell you that they were busy hanging around the poker tables watching their parents play.  However, few of these future pros knew how to play poker at such a young age.  Alexa Fisher, on the other hand, not only knows how to play games like holdem poker, but she also knows how to play all of the other poker games too.

Fisher revealed this when she told poker news outlets the following, “I know how to shuffle and deal the cards, raise, check, fold, and bluff.  I also know how to play deuce-to-seven lowball, H.O.R.S.E., and badugi.  I can now play any poker game with the best poker players in the world!”

Sure Fisher may be getting a little ahead of herself with the previous statement and won’t even be able to play poker in professional events until 2024, but it’s amazing that she already knows this much about poker.  Alexa showcased her knowledge of poker strategy in a recent Texas charity tournament called Homes for Pets.  Fisher played poker hands just as well as any of the other players and held her own until being knocked out after surviving over half of the field. 

She started playing poker as a 3 year-old when her father Justin Fisher taught her the game.  Upon learning to play poker, Alexa was given the choice to go to Disneyland or the WSOP; she chose the WSOP.  Here Fisher met many of her favorite players such as Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan, and Annie Duke

Having already met several top pros, Fisher should fit right in when she becomes old enough to start playing casino poker.  But for now, she’ll be keeping up with her straight A’s at Sibblo Elementary in Cibolo, Texas.
