Terrific Show

Terrific show that covers a lot of ground and games ... even if I’m not a fan of the specific game or topic, i find I learn something about advantage play in general. Clearly it’s a lifestyle to be an advantage player, but even for us civilians it’s nice to find an edge here and there !

Pod Fan in VA ,

Good content. Poor audio.

I’m not an advantage player, but I enjoy the content/advice/stories. Sadly, the audio quality is quite poor by today’s standards. Not sure if the fault lies with the microphones, the production software, the network, etc., but I hope the team will invest the time and a little money to make the shows sound better.

Not bad til Eric

Was a good show til you had that gambling addict, Eric Rosenthal, on the show. He should be more concerned with spending more time with his kids (which he has (abandon) vs gambling 5 to 6 times a week.
