Meet Your Instructor Adrian Naggy


✔ LearnWPT Chief Operating Officer

✔ Dedicated Student of the Game

Adrian Naggy's 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 WPT 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.
