Back in 2008, Daniel Almeida was completing his math degree when he first stumbled upon poker. He learned to play via home games, and his interest and commitment to the game quickly grew.
A few years later, he ended up abandoning a solid career as a math teacher to dedicate himself professionally to poker. This paid off as he now boasts an impressive $1.8 million in online tournament earnings, as well as more than $250,000 in live tournament earnings.
Daniel is a big fan of Upswing Poker’s co-founder Doug Polk, and credits Polk’s classes for arousing his interest in game theory and more advanced strategies. The other part of his success is attributed to his mother, who he says is his biggest fan.
