Originally from New Rochelle, New York, Mickey Doft now calls Aventura, Florida home. Before college, Mickey couldn't tell you the difference between a flush and a full house, but since then he's picked up a few things about poker. With a history major and a business minor from Brandeis University, Mickey naturally joined the poker community as a field reporter for PokerNews at the 2008 World Series of Poker. Since then, he has served as a freelance writer and tournament reporter for PokerNews.
Aside from poker, Mickey is an avid TV show critic and hockey fan (when they actually play).
