Fernando was fantastic with my 14 year old son. He asked what type of music he wanted to play to keep him engaged. He had a great 45 minute lesson with him. Fernando is passionate about violin and it shows. Looking forward to continuing with Fernando! Highly recommend him!

Playing No Limit Texas Holdem at an advanced level requires an enormous amount of knowledge and skill. If you don’t know everything there is to know about the game you are playing, then you are at a significant disadvantage to say the least. Consistently “winning” No LimitTexas Holdem requires a skill set that is not acquired easily or without great cost. It requires a great will to win or “Heart” which can’t be taught. If you posses this amazing gift then the rest can be learned through proper instruction and play. Sure you may acquire the arsenal of skills required to be a great “winning” player on your own, but the costs will be significant and the hours countless. You can travel leaps and bounds in one of the most complex games of all, through excellent instruction provided by a “winning” player. If you let me show you the greatest game in the world I will show you how to challenge every player at the table regardless of his or her level of play. In depth knowledge and instruction
