    He started competing intently after acquiring a fake ID by the name of Jerome. He sharpened his abilities at the poker rooms in Atlantic City. The beginning number of years for him were a teaching experience and coming away with a win was not a regular outcome at the time. He became known at the 2000 WSOP where he made two final tables and came away with his 1st World Series of Poker bracelet, in a $2, 500 Pot-Limit Omaha event. At the last table he defeated quite a few of the better known pros including "Amarillo Slim" Preston, David "Devilfish" Ulliot, and Phil Hellmuth, Jr.
