They kick off with a chat about the Irish Poker Open Online and the broader subject of live brands taking themselves to the virtual felt this past year. The conversation then shifts to the recent feuds between high profile Training Sites and their owners/would-be content creators.

Proceedings end with David plugging the upcoming 100th Chip Race episode and the special (money and prizes added) €100 PKO tournament being planned for March 25th on Unibet Poker to celebrate.

Chasing Poker Greatness
Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast is the host of the “Thinking Poker” podcast and author of Play Optimal Poker 1 and 2 Andrew Brokos.Andrew’s another one of those human beings who makes you consider your personal beliefs.Recently on Twitter in a thread about the Daniel Negreanu WSOP software meltdown Andrew left me with a this statement, “One last thought for you specifically, very few people have chased poker greatness as successfully as Daniel Negreanu and this is where it got him.”Which I equated to throwing a grenade and leaving the room.With that thought in mind I just want to make absolute certain one person’s version of poker greatness does not have to be yours. It’s a personal aspiration that each and every one of us, myself included, should consider deeply.I genuinely hope that through this podcast, if nothing else, you will gain the necessary tools needed to answer this question for you and you alone.And it’s my ultimate wish that you take special care on your emotional, physical, and spiritual as you endeavor to chase your version of poker greatness.With that said, in today’s episode you’re going to learn: - The surprising “why” behind the beginning of Andrew’s poker career.- Why Andrew has found poker attracts the kinds of souls he tends to enjoy spending time with.- An awesome tactic he uses to measure his level of play in live tournaments.- And much, MUCH more!So, without any further ado, I bring to you podcaster, author, and thinker Andrew Brokos.New CPG Cash Game Courses!Preflop Bootcamp: https://bit.ly/Preflop-BootcampFish in a Barrel: http://bit.ly/fish-in-a-barrelNeutralize Flop Leads: https://bit.ly/2OkN8Yt
