A full-time writer/poker player/poker coach, Matt Matros grew up on the East End of Long Island in Westhampton, New York. He has a bachelor’s in math from Yale, and an MFA in fiction writing from Sarah Lawrence College.
As a poker player, Matt is a known for having a strong theoretical background in the game, and his three World Series of Poker bracelets seem to back his theories up. As a writer, Matt has published the strategy narrative The Making of a Poker Player (Lyle Stuart), more than 100 columns for CardPlayer magazine, and several short poker-related pieces for The Washington Post and CNN Money. Matt’s fiction has appeared in the UC-Santa Barbara journal Spectrum, and with luck, more of his fiction will be making its way into the world soon; he is currently seeking representation for his novel Electives and Extracurriculars, a big-hearted satire of college in the late 1990s.
Matt Matros resides in Brooklyn, NY with his wife Ivy.
