I’m Charlie. You might know me as Epiphany77 (my PokerStars handle).
I’m a successful poker player and, more recently, an almost-full-time philanthropist.
My aim is to help others find the same success I did.
I was born in Jersey (one of the Channel Islands) in 1993.
At 19, I realised poker was going to be a big deal. I needed to focus. I moved back to my grandmother’s house in Jersey and committed myself fully to the game. Social life = annihilated.
I had $2,500. The goal was $100k.
When I was about two-thirds of the way there, I won $201,000 in the Sunday Million. Bit of a turning point.
From there, I kept up with online poker – and I also started buying into live tournaments.
I netted a couple of big wins over the next couple of years, including:
- €1.1million in the EPT11 Grand Final Monte Carlo in May 2015
- $565k in the EPT13 in Prague, 2016
- $1.2million at the SCOOP main event in January 2017
- €327k in Monte Carlo again, May 2019
All in all, I’ve won over $7.1million in live events and over $1million in online tournaments.
I still live in London. I don’t spend all of my time obsessing over poker (in fact, as you may have heard, I consider myself semi-retired from that world) but it’s still a big part of my life.
I am working on all aspects of myself: mental, physical and spiritual. By healing, and making myself whole, I can help others. I am launching a charity (Abundance – watch this space) to do just that.
Poker-wise, I have shifted my focus to teaching. Hence this site. My coaching is focused on micro- and small-stakes poker, which is what you’ll find in my videos.
