Meet LearnWPT Team Member...
Adrian Naggy's role as LearnWPT COO was born out of his love for competition and the desire to help others achieve their goals in poker. His journey in poker started at a very young age playing at the kitchen table with family. During a weekly “call your round” home game in 2002, No-Limit Texas Hold’em was introduced and he never looked back. After seeing The Great Dane Gus Hansen take down the first WPT Title on Television he was hooked. Adrian began to play online and sought out every piece of strategy advice available through books, videos, and online forums. In 2012 he left a career in Technology Construction to pursue poker full time. An avid online grinder, Adrian averages 1,500 tournaments per year and is playing more live events including joining Team LearnWPT On Tour at World Poker Tour stops.
With a 17 year career in scholastic and olympic style wrestling as the backbone, Adrian’s discipline and determination are a driving force behind his desire to become the #1 ranked tournament player in the world. A fixture at LearnWPT Live Workshops, WPT Live Events, Adrian loves meeting and helping LearnWPT students of experience levels achieve their poker goals.
Adrian left his career in 2012 as a Technology Designer and Construction Engineer in the Northeast US to pursue his dream of playing poker professionally and enjoys joining Team LearnWPT On Tour at WPT stops around the country. Off the felt Adrian loves going to concerts and seeing live music, golf, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and hiking with his partner Kelly and pup Wilson.
Adrian’s discipline and determination, learned from his 17 year career in scholastic and Olympic style wrestling, are an invaluable asset to LearnWPT Students who are looking to transition into playing poker professionally or semi-professionally.
