February 25, 2008 - If you play online poker, there's a good chance you are a twenty-something male. If not, then good for you. Oh, and I wish you the best. Certainly, the professional poker circuit is largely populate by middle aged men. Okay, you could call many of them young, but the top of the pack is certainly not dominated by all twenty-something's. Online, however, you are the minority if you're not a male in your twenties or early thirties.

Why do you think so many poker rooms throw these bling-bling promotions and constantly shower the Web with pictures of scantily clad women and super model spokeswomen? Yes indeed. The online poker world is for the young, ambitious and naive. But wait, is that necessarily true...err, the last part about the young being naive and ambitious? Ambitious yes. But naive? Not necessarily so.

Take for instance, Allen "Reverse" Goldstein. If you saw this kid sitting at his laptop, there's a good chance you might be inclined to not take him seriously. That is, if you like to judge on appearances. You would probably be more inclined to put him off as a video gamer and Xtreme sportster. Well, maybe he is, maybe he isn't. Either way, if you took the time to talk to this "kid", you would learn that he has some serious chops for the game of poker.

Reading a CardPlayer.com interview with Allen Goldstein, who recently nabbed the main event of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series VII, I learned that Goldstein has been playing online poker since the age of eighteen. Now at twenty-five and with seven years of hard earned experience under his belt, Goldstein has become one of the top ranking internet poker players.

What I was most impressed about Goldstein was his desire for knowledge and steadfast commitment to improving his game. He, by no means, started out successfully. Only after he mastered $3-$6 limit Hold'em, did he move up to the $6-$12 tables, then the $20-$40 tables and finally to $60-$120.

He credits much of his early learning to gambling books, more specifically a poker book called Winning Low-Limit Hold'em by Lee Jones. Goldstein also recommends reading T.J. Cloutier's Championship No-Limit and Pot-Limit Hold'em.

So for all you online poker champ wanna-be's out there, no matter your age, take some advice from Allen "Reverse" Goldstein: Start small and never stop learning.
