Meet our Instructors:
Jamie Kerstetter started playing poker in 2002. She has established herself as both a successful online and live tournament poker player as well as live cash game player. She spends most of her time grinding daily 2/5 and 5/10 nlhe cash games as well as getting to all the major tournament circuits on the East Coast. She has several significant live tournament cashes in both WSOP and WPT events, including a 33rd place finish in one of the $1500's and a cash in the Main Event at the 2011 WSOP. She is a highly respected and feared online player where she goes by the screen name "and the law won". She divides her time between Rosarito, Mexico and New Jersey so that she can play online on Poker Stars. Jamie is also a coach and makes training videos for Tournament Poker Edge. Even though poker is her full-time occupation, Jamie is also a tax attorney in the state of New Jersey. She attended Rutgers University for her undergraduate degree and University of Michigan Law School. Some of her interests include playing soccer, running marathons and camping.

Marguerite Spagnuolo has been playing poker since she was seven years old, when her dad ran a weekly home game in the family basement. She grew up playing hold’em, which her father called “52"—five on the board and two in your hand. Until she was 25, she thought of poker purely as family entertainment. She knew nothing about tournament strategy but she gave it a shot. In one of her first tournaments, she shoved all-in with top pair when she was still one out of the money—and busted on the stone bubble in 11th place. “That was the worst thing that happened–well, it was the best thing, actually,” she says. “Because that made me want to learn how to play correctly".
Marguerite read a few books, but she was still seeking some more information on specific areas of game strategy. She found the poker help she needed when she stumbled upon an ad for a WPT Boot Camp online. She literally walked out of Boot Camp (2007) into an event at the Borgata—and cashed in 7th place. Since then, she has accumulated over $60,000 in tournament earnings. Just this year alone, she has a 1st place title at the Borgata Summer Open Ladies Championship 2013 and a 2nd place finish at the PCA Ladies Event in January. She is well-known for her friendly and "animated" personality and has a lot to offer on what she calls "personality strategy" at the table. She will share some insightful information on gaining an edge on the felt that she feels only women possess.
