Loved the recent episode featuring Mike Shaw. Will defiantly be a regular listener.
So much fun
I started listening about a month ago, this podcast is terrific. I have a very rudimentary understand of poker, and really enjoy hearing the language about poker(under the gun, the nuts, gutshot, etc ) and looking up those terms. Does anyone know what book Peter Svidler mentions in episode 15? It is at the 43:20 mark, I just can’t understand him .. the “underbrokage” book?
If you like logic, puzzles , etc ... don’t miss this podcast. It is so interesting to hear how successful players train their minds .
Unique Concept that works
Really enjoy it. It’s refreshing and different from most poker pods.
