Grew Up… learning the ropes of how to play Texas Hold 'Em poker. He knows every approach, and despite his young age, he's pretty skilled. To him it's almost an art form: "Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you are the sucker."
Living… without much money. Mike lost his entire bank roll one night recently to a Russian mobster by the name of Teddy "KGB." Defeated, Mike swore off gambling to focus on his law school studies and took a job as a truck driver to earn some cash.
Profession… law student. But when his longtime friend (and gambling addict) Lester "Worm" Murphy comes back into his life, the urge to start rounding again resurfaces. Lester admitted to having a $30K debt that he has to repay, and Mike feels obligated to help out. Lester has only five days to make the money he owes back.
Relationship Status… in a relationship with another law student, Jo. Mike has promised Jo that he's sworn off gambling. Now that he has started gambling again, things are getting rocky between them.
Challenge… surviving the gambling world. Mike wants more than anything to compete in the World Series of Poker. He's just good enough to stand a chance if he could actually make it to Las Vegas to compete. But the world of rounding is full of dangerous people, and if your debt isn't paid, you better skip out of town fast.
Personality… brilliant, ambitious, and intuitive. His passion and optimism are admirable, but these same qualities lead him to an addition that is hard to shake.
