Today’s guest is one of the all-time beasts in both the online and live poker realm Ari Engel. Ari has over 7 million dollars in live tournament winnings, was the number 1 ranked online player for tournaments in 2006, and is currently the 35th ranked tournament player in the world according to the global poker index.

Coming off of a scorching hot LAPC with 2 wins and 2 runner-ups, Ari is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

In our conversation we’re going to cover a TON of ground including Ari’s experiences with backers, unexpected acts of kindness in the poker world, and stepping out of your comfort zone when you see your fellow human beings being mistreated.

You’ll also learn:

- How Ari used online trolls to improve his game.
- What Ari believes is an ELITE return on investment for every tournament you enter (Hint, it was much different than what I had previously believed.
- How Ari’s opinion on “playing for the win” has changed over the years.
- And much, much more.

So, without any further ado, I bring to you the perpetually great Ari Engel.

Poker Stories: Ari Engel

Play

Ari Engel is one of the hardest working grinders on the tournament circuit today. The former no. 1 online poker player in the world has been practically living out of a suitcase as he chases big cashes all over the globe. The 33-year-old has done quite well for himself, with nearly $5 million in live tournament cashes. He's currently tied for fourth place with eight WSOP Circuit titles and in 2016, he took down the Aussie Millions main event.

Despite the fact that he didn't really concentrate on live poker until after Black Friday, Engel has somehow managed to rack up 284 live tournament cashes so far in his career, 48 of which came last year. To compare, 53-year-old Phil Hellmuth, who won the 1989 WSOP main event, has a total of 280 career cashes.

Highlights from this interview include being a world-traveling child, Canadians with Australian accents, lazily finishing college in two years, inspiring his landlord to take up poker, being a poker workaholic, the positives of a fragmented online poker market, how to cash 48 times in one year, having the third worst set and still winning, and figuring out where to live in the world.
