It is doubtful there is another player in the world who divides opinion as sharply as Goering. Many players think he is an absolute fish, while others consider him a genius. His record in major tournament suggests the latter camp are nearer the mark!

He finished runner up to Noel Furlong in the WSOP main event in 1999 and won the inaugural WPT Championship at the Bellagio beating the little matter of Brunson, Forrest, Ivey and Gerasimov at the final table.

Infuriating to his opponents for his constant raising and calling, he rarely lets a pot go by without being involved.

He made his fortune trading junk bonds in the 1980’s and has retired to play the biggest poker tournaments in the World.

If you ever have the misfortune of facing him at the poker table the only advice I can give you is: watch out!
