A graduate of Vanderbilt University, Cypra is one of just a handful of students ever to complete a joint degree program. After moving to Nashville, Tennessee in 1999 for college, he still resides in the bustling metropolis.
His love of the great American pastime of poker began on his 21st birthday, when Cypra recorded a three-figure payday on a 25 cent video poker machine, hooking him instantly. He began working with some of the top poker-related sites on the Web, which eventually led him to Poker News Daily. He enjoys playing live cash games at the Gold Strike Casino in Tunica, Mississippi and makes annual pilgrimages to Las Vegas.
