Nicknamed "The Poker Pundit", Andy Glazer was one of the most popular poker writers who covered the sport, and is best known for being one of the best tournament reporters. He was the tournament reporter for the World Series of Poker and was also a columnist for Card Player Magazine and the Detroit Free Press. He also wrote two books: Casino Gambling the Smart Way: How to Have More Fun and Win More Money and Complete Idiot's Guide to Poker.
He grew up in Massapequa, New York and later graduated from the University of Michigan. His interest in writing began in high school where he was the sports editor of the school newspaper. After being accepted at the Emory University School of Law he served as the editor in chief of the school newspaper.
Glazer practiced law for only two years. According to a tribute written by Phil Hellmuth, he reportedly retired from law because he felt guilty about winning a case for a drug dealer in court who he knew was guilty.
Although he was known mainly as a poker writer, he did play poker often and managed to cash in a few tournaments, including a final table during Season One of the World Poker Tour.
Glazer passed away on July 4th, 2004 at age 48.
