Hi, I’m Leo Wolpert. I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to be good at poker, so I can spend more time playing poker well enough to afford to live. I’ve had some good live tournament results over the years, and hope to have even more to come. When not playing tournaments (mainly in Las Vegas, South Florida, and on US-facing internet poker sites), I occasionally grace cash games with my presence. Perhaps this website will one day contain an exhaustive navel-gazing history of my poker career. Not yet, though!
Before I became obsessed with poker, I was obsessed with an even more esoteric game: quizbowl. My (over-a-decade-ago) face is still on the top of the ACF Quizbowl page; that picture was taken shortly before we brought home a legit quizbowl championship for the University of Michigan. We won another one the next week. Good times.
Additionally, I went to law school at the University of Virginia and became a member of the Nevada bar. I have plenty of hot takes brewing about the states of the legal industry and the justice system, but they certainly are not appropriate for an “about” page.
