Dietrich began his poker journey in 2005, and as soon as he started playing the game he felt a passion that he’d never experienced before. While working 40 hours per week, and balancing a second job as a pizza delivery driver, he spent every spare minute he had immersing himself into the game. He spent the next few years actively seeking and working with players that were better than him, in order to speed up his progress within the game. By 2014, he was earning a solid living making $10 per game with a good, soft schedule over a big sample, when a lucky break earned him a staking and coaching deal with Doug Polk. This deal gave him the opportunity to take his game to the next level, and today, he has over $3.5M in earnings.
