About the Author:

Mark “The Red” Harlan was born in Rawlins,Wyoming, and has lived exactly the life you’d expect as aresult. Armed with a degree in Applied Mathematics (from auniversity he loathes so much that he refuses to even utter thename), he fell headlong into a 20-year stint in the SiliconValley’s computer industry.
Red’s professional experience includes human-interface workat Apple Computer, development of the bidding schema used by eBay,overseeing application development at Danger (makers of theT-Mobile Sidekick), as well as co-founding CyberArts Licensing(suppliers of the poker software seen on the MANSION and GamesGridsites).
At the tender age of 8, he won a pinewood derby competition in theCub Scouts, giving him his first heavy swig of victory that wouldforever warp his oh-so-soft-and-pliable mind. Under the influenceof this experience, he started playing poker that same year(“might as well win money if you’re going towin”) and became good enough by 2005 to be a net money winnerin that year’s World Series of Poker.
Red is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authorsand has an extensive writing background ranging from penningInfoWorld’s Notes from the Fringe during the heyday ofthe Internet, to being lead author of the book he thinks everyoneshould own (his mom does): Winning at Internet Poker ForDummies (Wiley).
Red maintains a Web site of poker articles at www.redsdeal.com andwelcomes non-spam e-mail at RedsDeal+HEFD@gmail.com (be sure toinclude the +).
