MMASherdog started playing 10 cent giveaways on PKR. Having won a little bit of money, he switched to Bodog to play Double-or-nothing sit&go’s. He managed to build up a 5k bankroll fairly quickly and jumped into Mid stakes No Limit.
After losing some of his earnings, he realized he wasn’t ready for those levels, and moved back down in stakes. He ran it up many times, but always got kicked back down again because of tilt and bankroll management problems.
He took a break from poker for six months, while watching training videos on Runitonce.com every single day. He deposited his remaining $2,000 on Pokerstars, with the mind frame that if he lost this money, he would never play online poker again.
He quickly moved up in stakes and became a regular at 10/20 No Limit within 8 months.
Nowadays, MMASherdog can be found grinding anywhere between 500NL Zoom and $200/$400 No Limit.
Started playing poker with a free $5 bonus and never deposited any money.
Slowly but steadily he built up his bankroll by transitioning from FLH to NLH and he has never looked back since then.
He has worked his way up to the highest stakes possible online.
His former teaching background in professional sports led him to join forces with MMAsherdog and RunLikePanda to found BluffTheSpot.
RunLikePanda started playing poker during middle school with a free 5$ bonus and worked his way up to FLH highstakes. Due to the little action that is in FLH in the last years, he made the transition to NLH once he moved to Malta in 2014 after finishing high school.
He started making videos for RIO and Pokerstrategy in 2015 focusing on FLH and theory.
Nowadays RunLikePanda is living in Vienna and mostly plays NLH but can still be found in FLH games when he is able to find a game.

I’m 26 years old, from Scotland, and have been playing professionally for 4 years. For the first 18 months of my poker career, I was focused on playing as much volume as possible, and grinding primarily for Rakeback. After realising this was not a viable future, I have since focused on improving as best I can, and have turned my game around significantly in that time. I now focus on a better winrate, more time for studying/reviews, and try to move up the stakes quicker. I also play a lot of live poker, and travel to USA a few times a year for live poker trips.
