Chasing Poker Greatness

Today’s guest on CPG is a living legend in the poker world, the author of Elements of Poker, Painless Poker, and Waiting for Straighters… the great Tommy Angelo.Tommy is no garden variety poker coach, he’s more like the Vince Lombardi of poker coaches, having been a grinder for over 30 years with a who’s who list of clients who have gone to to chase their own poker greatness. In broad strokes, he places great emphasis on mental health and reducing unhappiness, as a means to increasing profit and well-being. Lately, Tommy’s been busy whipping up videos in a series called “PokerWords” on YouTube that you can check out by clicking through on his showpage ChasingPokerGreatness.com.This is Tommy’s third go around as a guest on CPG and, if I get my way, he’ll be on many more future episodes to come.Between you and me, it’s great that I get to share mine and Tommy’s conversations but that’s totally secondary as far as I’m concerned. He’s such a wealth of poker and life wisdom that every time I shut down the recording I feel so incredibly blessed to be in his direct sphere of influence.Today, like in past episodes with Tommy, you’re gonna journey through his colorful past, including hilarious poker stories from his Greatest Hits collection…And then we’ll spend some time reflecting both on what’s going on in the present as well as speculating about the future.Some Greatness Bombs you’re about to hear include:- The No. 1 thing Tommy believes poker players get wrong.- Tommy’s thoughts on what makes for good poker education in the modern day.- What life in the underground poker scene of the 80’s was like.- And much, MUCH more!So without any further ado, I present to you poker legend, coach, and dear friend...
