Mo Nuwwarah is a 34-year-old writer and editor from Omaha, Nebraska. He graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha with a B.A. in journalism in May 2011, and began writing for PokerNews in April 2013 at the World Series of Poker Circuit stop in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Currently, Mo live reports a variety of tournaments for PokerNews, mixing in a bit of photography while learning on the job.
His poker education began by playing $5 sit-n-gos with friends during his senior year of high school. Mo then progressed to $50 no-limit hold'em home cash games in college and culminated in grinding $100 no-limit hold'em six-max and winning a few tournaments on PokerStars before Black Friday. When he has the time to play nowadays, Mo loves to play live pot-limit Omaha and short-handed no-limit hold'em.
Mo's hobbies include working out and running, playing sports when his body isn't on the mend, drinking expensive beer and dabbling in degenerative sports betting.
In June 2021, Mo left PokerNews after eight years of excellent service to continue his writing career at Catena Media. All of his articles between 2013-2021 can be found below.
