Berney Hoover

I'm a 24 year old from Elk Grove (Sacramento) CA. I was a bouncer and a poker dealer. I'm now a Prop player and a dealer. I make my living mostly from playing though. I go to the local community college. I've played in only a few big tourneys but have done well in them. I won the short-handed (6-person table) WSOPC at the Ballys, winning 65K. That same week I took 19th in the 10k Main Event at Ballys. Took 6th place LA Poker classic shootout.
