Hey there! Welcome to my website!

My name is Kar Yung Tom (KYT) and I am a strategy game enthusiast. Here are some quick highlights to get a rapid feel for my gaming background:

  • Chess: I was ranked top 10 in Quebec until I quit competitive play at the age of 17.
  • Magic: The Gathering: I qualified for and competed in 2 Pro Tours.
  • Poker: I played online cash games (100NL 6-Max) semi-professionally.
  • Daily Fantasy Sports: I won major contests in NBA and NFL on FanDuel with my own computer models. My total earnings are over the 6-figure mark.

I graduated in Software Engineering at McGill University, so whenever code can be used to optimize a process, you can bet that I’m ready for it!

I started a YouTube channel called Canadian Finance Simplified because I wanted to chronicle how someone with my experience and passion for analytics would attack investing.

I’m always excited to learn new strategies and share my insights with fellow enthusiasts.
