Marchant Davenport's Bio

Marchant started playing poker in college with a group of friends in 2004 when poker exploded on to TV screens across the nation. "Whenever I heard about poker when I was young, I remember thinking, 'Oh, that dumb five-card draw game?'" said Marchant.  "Seeing No Limit Hold'em made me rethink my assessment so we began throwing it into the mix of our game nights and played for nickels."

Wanting to improve his game, Marchant went online and practiced playing with play money. After a couple of months of playing, he bought a few books and deposited $25 online. "Fortunately, I never went broke. Within a few months, I quit my job waiting tables and paid for the remaining few years of college with poker."

Poker has been Marchant's primary source of income ever since and he's also enjoyed trips to Las Vegas almost every summer since 2006. "I credit FCP and the dozens of friends that I've made through it with providing me a lot of improvement along the way." In the fall of 2010, Marchant moved to South Florida where he's been playing full-time since.

Marchant mostly plays in the $600NL and $1000NL games, and has put in a decent decent volume at $2000NL. "I also played in and won a bit in the biggest game I've ever played - a 10/20 Euro game in Cannes."

In 2012, Marchant ended his season with $80K in cash winnings and looks to continue the success in to the new year.

He's also had plenty of success in tournaments though it is not his main focus in poker. Below are some of his more notable results.
