Amazing quality = almost infinite value

Really excellent podcast. Well-presented with smart humor, relaying the intricacies of poker, online, live and GTO without trying to over-demonstrate how smart they are, without patronizing by talking down. Can’t believe I get it for free. Because value = utility/cost, I did start by describing infinite value, but then I remembered to value my time as non-zero. Having said that, I haven’t found a more effective way of learning except that side benefit was being introduced to Andrews Play Optimal Poker book, which is also a great way to learn how to implement a GTO-aware poker strategy. Thank you Andrew, thank you Nate

Hundreds of dollars or more for free

The generosity of the hosts cannot be understated. This is high quality poker coaching, for free. Extremely adaptable to my live game up to 5-10. Thanks.

My New Favorite Podcast

A very smart and entertaining show. The hosts are great and they have all kinds of random interesting guests. They often touch peripherally on other analytical and interesting topics, but it keeps to being a primarily poker podcast. Topped off with great strategy in their hand analysis segments also.
