How we began
I first started playing in early 2013 at a local pub in West Seattle, WA. It started as just something to do for fun and has turned into sort of a hobby. After winning a few daily tournaments and then eventually a quarterly I had the chance for a spot in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) or $1000 cash prize, I took the cash. This prize money was the start of my investment. In early 2014, the opportunity presented itself to start Pocket Eights.
