Starting with Monopoly at age 6, William Jockusch never saw a game he didn’t like. Since then, he has become addicted to Risk, chess, Dungeons and Dragons, wargames, various computer games, bridge, Magic: The Gathering, and, most recently, poker. Jockusch has somehow found time between his games to earn a PhD in math from MIT.
In addition to his passion for poker, William’s interest in games also gave him a passion for game design. For seven years, William worked for Wizards of the Coast, where he helped create and improve new cards for Magic: The Gathering, a card game created by fellow mathematician Richard Garfield.
Applying his game design skills to poker, William created Underpoker, a variant deck that can be used for common forms of poker such as Omaha and hold’em.
William is the author of Pot-Limit Omaha: Understanding Winning Play published by 2+2 in 2009. Learn more about William Jockusch
