20 Most Influential People
#10: Dominik Kofert
Kofert entered the poker affiliate space in 2007 and quickly built one of the most lucrative affiliate models ever created. Through his poker training site PokerStrategy.com, Kofert has driven an immense number of conversions to online poker rooms through a model that releases free poker training videos to players based on their achievement of certain volume-based play hurdles at online poker rooms.
Kofert’s entrance into online poker started innocently enough: while studying mathematics at Oxford University, he began teaching others how to win at online poker. A business idea was born and the rest is history. Kofert is a giant that every online poker room is anxious to do business with.
