Uboat888: Grinderschool PLO Coach
Simon, known as 'uboat888' in the grinderschool forum and playing as 'sysysy888' on pokerstars, was first introduced to no limit holdem by his wife and has been addicted to poker ever since. After busting his first roll, he joined grinderschool in the fall of 2010 and has never had to reload.
He switched to pot limit omaha at the beginning of 2012 realizing that it's never too late to switch into a game where there are less information compared to no limit holdem. With a straight forward tight aggressive approach, Simon was able to move up through 2 PLO - 25 PLO and building his game and bankroll to take shots at 50 PLO.
Simon can always be found in the forums where he enjoys reading and interacting with the other members of grinderschool. His game has been strongly influenced by reading other members, past and present, hand histories, blogs and watching all the variety of videos at Grinderschool.
Outside of poker, he focuses his time with his son and his wife and is an active runner.
