Matt Flynn is a dermatologist, poker player, and author from Oakland, California. He received his applied math degree from Harvard, where he received a scholarship from the Walt Disney Foundation. In 1996 he earned his M.D. from Duke University.
Matt currently lives in North Carolina with his wife and two sons. He has a private dermatology practice and is the volunteer dermatologist for children served by the Wake County Health Department.
Matt got his start in poker at age 8 when his then-87-year-old great-grandmother taught him to play 7-card no-peek at a Thanksgiving gathering. In 2000, Matt began playing limit hold 'em at Lucky Chances in Colma, California. It was there that he met poker author Tommy Angelo. The two immediately clicked and over the next few months Tommy mentored Matt into high-stakes limit games. Through Tommy, Matt met no-limit pro Alex Roberts who taught him the fundamentals and sat him in his first game. It was love at first raise. Afterwards, Alex said, "We have another ex-limit player." Under Alex's tutelage, Matt apprenticed in the $10-$10-$20 game at Lucky Chances and never looked back. He has played and studied high-stakes no-limit ever since.
Matt co-authored Professional No Limit Hold’em with Miller and Mehta. Learn more about Matt Flynn
