Great Fantasy Football & DFS Advice
Tuchman is a gifted host, and he keeps the content flowing. Best part of the show is his insight on DFS, and how he selects his teams each week. Clearly, he does his research and he is generous about sharing it with his audience. Also good is his review of poker hands -- he complements Bart Hanson very well in offering a slightly different strategic "personality" -- bluffier and more aggressive, basically a LAG.
This rating would be five stars, but I do have a few areas of improvement for him. First of all, he needs to get rid of the simultaneous HU game -- makes no sense to split his attention between two things. It might be more fun for him, but it's a total drag on the podcast. His focus is clearly wavering, and it's just not interesting.
I also agree with some of the other reviews that Tuchman is a bit self-involved, and it would help if he were a better listener. But maybe that's something that he can't really change about himself. When he interrupts his guests to say something inane about himself, he kind of comes across as a d*ck.
Overall though, the podcast is a good listen, and I almost never skip an episode.
Love the possibilities you can create in your life with gaming and poker
I love the recent podcast episodes about how to live your life to the fullest despite the coronavirus pandemic.
The most recent interview with Ryan Feldman was so touching, because I knew I always loved poker but I didn’t know how I can use poker to create a bigger mission than myself.
After listening to this episode, I started my own mission to help people beat the pandemic by teaching them how to make money with online poker!
Thanks for the inspiring content.
Let guests talk
Please stop talking over your guests. Too much summarizing, too much anecdote at the expense of the guest’s time to speak. Let the “experts” talk about what they know. Guide the conversation, don’t act like a quasi-source.
