Patrick started out in poker at the lowest stakes, but from the very beginning he had the goal to be “the best in the business”. He started a blog to detail his progress, and most people doubted him—some even thought he was crazy. They soon realized he was serious, and that with his work ethic, focus, and determination, his seemingly crazy goal could become a reality. As he progressed, it was no shock when he did what he said he would, and reached #1 in the Worldwide Online Poker Rankings on PocketFives. From there, he’s gone on to have great success, both in online poker—with numerous major wins including a $161K WCOOP title—and in the live arena, where he’s amassed $2M in earnings including back-to-back-to-back victories in Vegas in July 2017.
