Rask has the National Hockey League to thank for his introduction to the game of poker. During the NHL’s 2004-2005 Lockout, Canadian television substituted poker shows to replace scheduled games. Through these programs, Rask began playing small stakes home games and eventually dabbling in live games after his 18th birthday.
Starting at the 200NL level, he quickly gained momentum and was soon playing 1000NL comfortably. After moving to college and opting to by-pass a collegiate golf career, he signed up to an online poker room and is now a regular in the 400NL+ full-ring games at Full Tilt and offers 1-on-1 private lessons for full-ring players up to the 400NL level.
