      No1 I knew personally, but here is the article for anyone interested. A real sad story because he was an up and coming successful online cash gamer.

      Jack Wilcox was a professional poker player from Reading, UK. He was a successful $400NL and $600NL 6max NLHE player. He took shots at $1,000NL (mostly when the fish were around), as well as occasionally playing PLO.

      Jack moved to Thailand with a group of other online poker players to for an extended holiday in early 2012. He died in a motorcycle accident on the 6th of February 2012, less than 3 weeks after arriving. He was 22 years old.

      However, since he started playing poker in 2009, Jack has helped a lot of people to become better at poker. He was active on the 2+2 forums, and also spent time chatting with and coaching players via instant messenger. He started his own training site aimed at micro-stakes players. He also wrote a bunch of strategy articles and made training videos too – for free.

      This page is here as a resource for links to all of his selflessly helpful work. We'll never know what great work he would have gone on to create, so we'll just have to settle for the amazing stuff he did leave us with.

      Even though Jack is no longer with us, his work will continue to make a difference. His talent for teaching deserves to be benefited from for years to come....
