Luka ‘LukaSteel’ Kovač

Just like all members of Team Online, Luka Kovač has a competitive nature that surfaced long before he first played poker. While some find their way to a career in poker through videogames or other strategic card games, Luka spent a decade as a competitive skier, travelling and competing in ski events until the age of 18. It kept him away from home for up to 120 days per year, and so when his career ended he was itching to find something else in his life. He’d always loved cards and competition, so poker was a perfect match.

Luka first discovered poker on television, and after a friend introduced him to the world of online play has not looked back. He used his Hold‘em skills to fund his way through college, gaining a degree in Multimedia Production, and is proud of the fact that he’s never lost his first deposit, nor worked a 9-5 job. His biggest source of pride, however, comes from knowing that he’s helping to build a genuine poker community in his native Slovenia as a member of Team PokerStars Online.

Aside from poker, Luka enjoys playing various sports, board games and videogames, as well as reading, watching movies, hanging out with friends and drinking craft beers. A cash game specialist, Luka favors Limit Hold‘em, and is keen to show how Fixed Limit poker can be as fun and action-packed as any other variant. You can find him online playing under the screen name ‘LukaSteel’.
