Sunny Mehta (born April 7, 1978, Grand Rapids, Michigan) is a professional poker player, writer, and musician. He is co-author of "Professional No-Limit Hold 'em: Volume I" (Two Plus Two Publishing) and "Small Stakes No-Limit Hold'em", with Ed Miller and Matt Flynn.


Mehta grew up in Wyckoff, New Jersey, and graduated from Ramapo High School in 1996. He went on to study Jazz Guitar and Studio Music at the University of Miami School of Music, and received his B.M. in 2000.[1]

He moved to New Orleans, Louisiana in 2002, where he performed and recorded with various local artists. Mehta began playing poker as a hobby in 2003, and by 2004 was playing professionally in high stakes no-limit Texas hold 'em games. After moving to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2005 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, he met poker author Ed Miller and publisher Mason Malmuth. Mehta and Miller, along with poker player Matt Flynn, co-authored "Professional No-Limit Hold 'em: Volume I", which was released by Malmuth's Two Plus Two Publishing in 2007.[2] The book immediately became the #1 gambling and poker book on Amazon's bestseller list.[3] Mehta moved back to New Orleans in 2006, where he now resides.[4]

The author team of Mehta, Miller, and Flynn left Two Plus Two to self-publish their highly anticipated second book, "Small Stakes No-Limit Hold'em", which was released in 2009.[5]
