#1 Female Australian Player of Year 2022
Owner and CEO JDub Poker
$100,000+ live earnings in 2021/2022

Janet is a trained and registered teacher with 30+ years of teaching experience. Janet has been playing poker casually for over 20 years.  Poker became a series option in 2021 and Janet started studying and learning from coaches to go onto some great success in both local and international tournaments and regularly plays cash games. 

JDub Poker was formed in 2021 when Janet was looking for live poker coaching in Australia and discovered that there was no coaching scene available.  Hence she opened the company and started with classes, master classes and bootcamps so she could attend and get coaching herself.

This lead to a significant increase in success including winning the MGM Grand Ladies event in Las Vegas in 2022 as well as cashing in two WSOP events and the MGM Tournament of Champions.

Teaching people who have never played before the “Learn to Play” classes is a passion for Janet, and you will discover the easy and exciting way to learn poker.  She is a patient and fun teacher who will give you the confidence to play in any game.
