Ed Miller grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. As a child, Ed was fascinated by science and math. Instead of a teddy bear, he slept with a Periodic Table of the Elements.
He received an BS in Physics and another in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 2000. After a year teaching, he moved to Redmond, Washington to work as a software developer for Microsoft.
Looking for a new hobby, he started to play hold ‘em poker online. After losing his initial stake, he sought to improve, and he found the books and website of Two Plus Two Publishing. He participated in discussions on the forums at TwoPlusTwo and after a few months he turned his losses into wins at a local cardroom.
By January 2003 he had moved up to higher stakes and in March he left his job at Microsoft to play poker full-time. By then he had swapped roles on the online discussion forums from advice-seeking beginner to expert player. He also started writing for Casino and Gaming Television.
After successfully beating the games in the Seattle area, Ed moved to Las Vegas. There he met Dr. Alan Schoonmaker, the author of The Psychology of Poker, who introduced Ed to David Sklansky and Mason Malmuth. A poker partnership soon was born.
In 2004, Ed co-wrote Small Stakes Hold ‘em: Winning Big With Expert Play with David Sklansky and Mason Malmuth, which quickly became known as the “bible” for limit hold’em games up to $40-$80.
In 2006, Ed co-wrote No Limit Hold ‘em: Theory and Practice with David Sklansky, author of The Theory of Poker.
In 2007, Ed co-write Professional No-Limit Hold’em: Volume 1 with Matt Flynn and Sunny Mehta.
On June 20th, 2006, Queer Eye aired featuring Ed Miller. Ed started as something between a lumberjack and a Dungeons and Dragons player but the Fab Five transformed him into a hip, clean cut television personality with Buddy Holly glasses.
Ed is currently working on a fifth book, Professional No-Limit Hold’em: Volume 2 with Matt Flynn and Sunny Mehta.
Ed Miller currently lives in New York City.
