Hey, my name is Lachezar Petkov.
I’m a professional poker player with more than 10 years of experience. In my career, I won more than 1.7 Million US Dollars exclusively from live events.
Currently, I’m staying at #5 at all time Bulgarian Money Making list according to Hendon Mob.
I started playing the game with pocket money in high-school and a few years later I finished making a deal in one of the most prestigious tournaments in Europe – EPT Barcelona and winning more than 1,000,000 US Dollars.
In my poker journey, I managed to grab some High Roller titles as well – both of them in Merit, Cyprus for $170, 000 and $120,000.
I mastered the game starting from Heads-Up Sit’n’Goes (HUSNG) and Spin and goes(SPINS).
Currently, I’m playing full time live and online MTTs and I’m ready to give you full coaching on all these formats. I coached many of the players in my stable with 1 on 1 or group sessions.
I would like to help you elevate your game to the next level. It is my burning desire to add value to people’s lives and give back not just in a financial way. Through my experience, knowledge, desire and passion for the game, I believe I can positively influence anyone who aims to improve and be successful.
To see someone I helped to succeed is bigger and more gratifying than any reward.

The Coaching Process:
Initially, I’d like to have a chat/ talk (usually via Skype) with any potential student to enquire where he/she stands and what we should work on. Then you can send a video or hand history that I will review and make notes on prior to our first session, combined with other materials I have prepared.
I will do my best to be an asset for you and provide value because your success is my gratification.
