A mainstay at high-stakes tournaments for years, Jeff Gross has become one of the most popular video streamers in poker by inviting a worldwide audience to share his personal highs and lows of high-stakes professional poker. In addition to 3.8 million in tournament earnings, 5 WSOP final tables, and 11 cashes on the World Poker Tour, Jeff has built a strong following through his video blogging, Twitch streaming of online poker and commentating with Poker Go.

Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Jeff’s first foray in poker was at a soccer camp the age of 15. Although the games consisted of pocket change and plastic chips, Jeff instantly fell in love with poker. Jeff’s soccer prowess earned him a scholarship to play for the University of South Carolina. The demanding schedule of being a full-time student and a scholarship athlete left Jeff with little time to work a traditional job. Instead, Jeff found that poker was the perfect fit, allowing him to grind cash games in the few breaks in his schedule. Upon graduation, Jeff decided to play poker professionally.

As Jeff started his professional poker career, he roomed with long-time friend and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps. During this time, Jeff focused on honing his craft through online games while learning from his 23-time gold medalist roommate how to channel his competitive drive into success.

In just his second World Series of Poker event in 2010, Jeff found himself at a final table. He followed up his sophomore performance with another WSOP final table a year later, finishing second in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout. After his success at the WSOP, Jeff shifted his focus on live poker. Since then, Jeff has become a regular on the World Poker Tour and in the WSOP.

When he not playing in live tournaments or streaming online tables, Jeff enjoys traveling and playing soccer. Jeff is also involved in several philanthropic efforts, including with the Michael Phelps Foundation, Rising for Effective Giving (REG), and ONE DROP.
