James “Jscorgie” Scorgie
My name is James Scorgie and I am 28 years old living in York, England. I have been playing professionally since October 2019 when I left my job as a Chartered Tax Advisor. I started playing poker at university through the Northumbria poker society (circa.2014), which I founded. Between then and going pro I focused on online, small field, low buy ins on predominantly UK only sites alongside working a full time job. Since becoming a pro I have fully committed to the game putting in exceptionally high MTT volume and studying almost everyday whether that be hand reviews, paid courses, solver work, coaching and youtube. I was very fortunate to have befriended some great likeminded players earlier in my career who have moved up the stakes alongside me over the last three+ years.
Today I would classify myself as a high volume medium stakes grinder with a focus on small/medium size fields (sub 500). The last two years has been where my career has really taken off where I have amassed circa.$225k in MTT profits on a $40abi (buy ins up to $215) with my largest score being $16k. I have been coaching now for over a year working with players ranging from $5-$40abi. My style of coaching has always been very well received as it focuses on a mix of solver based fundamentals in conjunction with proven exploitative adjustments.
