#84 Jonathan Little Round 2: ACR Ban, #PokerGOAT, & Excelling at Tough NLHE Games

Read more
Today my guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast coming back for an overdue Round 2 conversation is the founder of PokerCoaching.com Jonathan Little.

I don’t know if you’ve heard but Mr. Little has been featured fairly prominently in a couple of controversies over the past week that of course we’re about to dive into. The first is Phil Nagy smashing him with the ban hammer at ACR and the 2nd stemmed from accusations of rigging Twitter polls in my recent #PokerGOAT competition on Twitter.

Before we go any further I want you to know that I’m biased in many, many ways in life but one of my core values is striving to be as fair as I can to the folks I interact with. On a personal level I’ve never personally had a single negative interaction with Jonathan or any of his PokerCoaching.com coaches and he’s been nothing but generous with his time and energy specifically with me.

With that said I do wish to make it clear to you that it’s ok if you don’t like Jonathan Little. It’s also OK if you hate me as well. I don’t know exactly why you’d be listening to this podcast if that were the case but that’s a different matter entirely.

Sometimes I feel like we live in a world where we don’t feel safe to have our own opinions, especially if they’re unpopular. I really, really hope that changes.

In today’s episode, you’re going to learn:

- Why Jonathan thinks Excelling at Tough No-Limit Hold’em Games should be the next book in your poker library.
- Why the #PokerGOAT controversy affected Jonathan more than getting banned from ACR.
- How you should go about risk-taking in today’s poker environment.
- And much, MUCH more.

So without any further ado, I bring to you the founder of one of the largest and most successful poker training platforms in the entire universe, Jonathan Little.

#10 Jonathan Little: 2x WPT Champ, $7 Million+, 14x Poker Strategy Author

Read more
Today I’m speaking with the 2007 WPT player of the year Jonathan Little.

Jonathan is a 2 time WPT tournament champion with more than $6.8 million in tournament wins. He’s also published 14 of the most high impact poker strategy books on the market … with number 15 and 16 hitting shelves in the near future.

And not only is Jonathan a tournament crusher extraordinaire, as the founder of pokercoaching.com he’s also a world-class coach who creates all kinds of amazing strategic content across all major platforms.

He also writes regularly for the largest poker website on the Internet, Pokernews.com.

I’m pretty sure we didn’t get into this much but I’m not quite sure when the man finds time to sleep.

But although he’s had great success, Jonathan is quick to point out that it wasn’t an easy path to get to where he is now. He’s also pretty clear about the fact that, counterintuitively, he doesn’t believe that he possesses many of the qualities that most people associate with successful professional poker players. But that most certainly hasn’t stopped him.

Jonathan is a perfect example of what you can achieve through hard work and dedication to your passion. During our conversation, you’ll hear how he got his start in poker, how he’s managed to keep improving and stay on top over the last 15 years, and what he’s thinking for the future. I’m sure you’ll also love his great insights into the game, what it takes to learn and improve, and the benefits of both teaching others and working with coaches.

There are few people in the game who work so tirelessly in trying to help others learn how to play cards, no matter what level they play at or wish to reach.

Jon was a joy to speak to and an absolute gold mine for dispensing poker wisdom.

So without any further ado ... I present to you, world champion poker player, prolific poker author, and world-class poker coach, Mister Jonathan Little.
