Nick Grudzien Bio and Books
Author Biography - Nick "Stoxtrader" Grudzien
Nick worked as a Wall-Street trader for ten years before taking a hiatus to play poker professionally, write this book, and spend time with his wife and two children, ages four and two. He currently spends his time playing high-stakes, online cash games, and traveling to a few of the bigger WPT and WSOP tournaments. He splits his time evenly between limit and no-limit play, and continues to study the game intensely.
Nick started playing poker seriously in the fall of 2003. He rapidly moved up in limits until the spring of 2005 at which point he reached, and has continued to play in, the highest cash games online. As Nick moved up in limits, he had the luxury of a stable job and considered poker to be recreation, at least initially. Bankroll requirements and risk objectives can be much more lax when the limits you play are small relative to your current earning potential, and this is a big reason Nick was able to move up in limits so quickly. Once Nick started playing $100-$200 limit hold'em online, bankroll considerations started taking a somewhat more serious perspective. Since then, he has always had 1,000 big bets in his poker designated bankroll for any limit hold'em game in which he has played.
Nick is one of the featured bloggers at Stoxpoker.com and regularly posts entries and produces instructional videos there. He also posts frequently under the name "Stoxtrader" at twoplustwo.com.
