GENE BROMBERG is a writer and blogger from Pittsburgh. Despite his demonstrable lack of aptitude for the game he found himself writing about poker for fun and, a bit later, professionally. He’s the blogger for UltimateBet and has also written for PokerNews, Bluff Magazine, CardPlayer, WorldSeriesOfPoker.com, PokerMagazine and Barstool Sports. And for nearly four years he blogged under the barely-pseudonymous name Mean Gene.
He received his bachelor’s degree in English from the Pennsylvania State University and his MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. There are days when he still can’t believe he actually made it through B-school. This is one of those days.
Gene enjoys playing volleyball almost as much as he enjoys going out for beers afterward. For eight years he’s maintained an uneasy truce with a cat named Ernie. And he recently discovered that he enjoys referring to himself in the third person.
