Bodog Ari

I'm Ari Engel and am also known as BodogAri online. I've played poker for a living for virtually my entire post-college life. In the last few years I have started teaching people my style and philosophy on poker tournaments. Many of them have done very well. If you are interested in getting my help, email:

May 29th Training Session

I will be conducting a training session on May 29th from 1130am-400pm pst. I know a lot of you haven't been able to play many tournaments in recent time so this class will aim to get you back onto a level necessary to do well this summer. In particular, I will be focusing on the methods I use to do well in live tournaments. As my twitter/facebook followers know I'm coming off a live heater where i final tabled 3 tournaments (1 in Chester PA and 2 in New Orleans) in less than a week for about $40K. Additionally I won a $350 in Las Vegas last month for a $8200.

This training class will be done in a unique format that allows for both students who can attend in person and those that can only attend remotely. I'll be using the same software that allows students to remotely attend my weekly/biweekly classes for the remote students. For those that can make it to Las Vegas, the class will take place at the training center in Summerlin (about 20 minutes from the strip). The cost of the class will be $500 and can be paid by cash, check, money order or paypal.

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about this class and look forward to working with you and helping my students have a successful summer. Please email me at if you have questions or comments.

WSOPC, 2 Day Training Workshop and New Website

I'm flying out to Florida tomorrow to play in the WSOP circuit event there and visit my parents. Hopefully it turns into an enjoyable and profitable extended weekend.

On March 7 and 8th I'm running a 2 day workshop titled "Inside the mind of Ari Engel: Turbo Edition". I'll be discussing my philosophy when it comes to the end game, short stack poker, game selection and other ideas that I find important to being a winning tournament player. If you're interested you can email me at for more info.

I have a new website under construction. I'm hoping to have fully up and running by the end of March. My training business is at a crossroads and this is a very exciting time for me. I'm going to keep working hard to ensure that my students continue to hit big scores and improve their games. I'm looking forward to bigger and better things going forward.
