The team at Learn Pro Poker is excited to welcome Michael Acevedo. Referred to as the GTO Master by Jonathan Little, Michael has been an online tournament pro and coach since leaving a promising career in finance in 2013.
When the decision to focus on poker was made, Michael sought the tutelage of Jon “Apestyles” Van Fleet, who was so impressed with Michael’s work ethic and theoretical knowledge that he invited him to a high stakes study group that included Stephen Chidwick and Elio Fox.
After climbing to an all-time high rank of 117 on Pocket FIves in 2017, the focus was turned to writing a strategy book. The highly acclaimed Modern Poker Theory: Building An Unbeatable Strategy Based On GTO Principles was released in 2019. Brandon Adams said, “I think this is the best poker book ever written.”
Michael also assisted the PioSOLVER development team after it’s launch to help improve the software. Many of his ideas were incorporated into the product. He currently has a worldwide ranking of 282 and lifetime earnings of $1.8 million.
