||Spartanfox's poker videos
LOCATION: SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
Mark "SpartanFox" Gahagan is a Computer Science graduate student who first started playing poker seriously in 2008. After initially struggling, he spent many hours pouring through poker books and instructional videos on CardRunners and Stoxpoker until he felt ready to truly compete in the poker world. And while grad school still takes up the bulk of his time, he has found a medium through which he could share his love of the game with others: podcasts. After starting a podcast on his own and receiving a decent following, he now does podcasts exclusively for CardRunners, helping the poker community understand the world through his eyes.
While not an expert yet, SpartanFox feels that away from the table skills and mantaining a healthy lifestyle are keys to success in poker and tries hard to maintain a balance between life and poker. When not actually playing poker or doing research, you can find him spending time with his friends, playing basketball, or trying to better understand the game he has grown to enjoy so much.
