Ryan Wiseman began playing online poker while a university student in 2003. Within a year, having studied many poker books with his poker-playing friends, he had become successful. Eventually they settled on one type of game the no-limit Texas Hold sit-go (single table) tournament. The game's predictable durations (40-60 minutes) fit well into their daily routines. More importantly, SNG could be defeated systematically. By the middle of 2005, Ryan had won more than #36;100,000. He currently lives in Toronto.
