Nick Vertucci is nothing if not a survivor. He converted his losses into an opportunity and has been able to make it big due to his persistent effort and hard work. He started his career by starting a business in computer accessories during the time of the dot com boom. The rapid increase in valuation of the computer industry back in the day was overhyped and eventually saw the bubble burst in 2000 when many computer-related businesses went out of business.
Despite incurring a huge debt and out of work, Vertucci showed no signs of stopping and quickly changed gears by entering the real estate market. As an investor in the real estate market, Nick Vertucci’s success can only be described as a rags to riches story. His acumen and making the right decision at the right time made him a genius at real estate, so much so that in 2014 he opened his academy, the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy (NVREA), to share his insights and expertize with up-and-coming real estate investors.
What he is most passionate about, though, is poker. He is also an accomplished professional poker player who has turned a hobby into a career. He started taking part in poker tournaments as far back as in 2004. Since then he has competed with the biggest name in the world of poker, like Antonio ‘the Magician’ Esfandiari, David Benyamine, and Phil ‘the Poker Brat’ Helmuth. He has also sat in games against celebrities like Ben Affleck and Don Cheadle.
Nick Vertucci has all the right skills that make him such a great poker player. He has the confidence and ability to bluff convincingly as well as excellent adaptability skills. He can get into the minds of his opponents and guess their next move while remaining passive and giving as little information as possible. Lastly, he knows when to quit and change route as he has already done in the past with his career and continues to do so in the games he plays.
