Interview with George Varanakis of The Portrait Masters

"Welcome back to another episode I am your host Frederick Ben Johnson today. Once again on the hot seat, I have my good friend. Mr George Very. You may have heard his name in the industry. He's he's got or had fingers in all corners of the photography industry that didn't come out right but. Just. Men involved with everything photography. If you don't know his name, you probably have been to an event that he's been. Behind. Trains on. All that stuff. So George here talk about. What are we talking about the Porch Masters Live? This is your last greatest you like you just like attempting really hard projects and. Hitting home runs apparently. So this one was obviously. Cova head and we had our original conference which was going to be in Phoenix Arizona September ninth through the twelfth we had to make a big decision and it was okay. Do we just not do anything this year or do we try to do our virtual conference if you will I don't really love the virtual name I was like call it digital conference that's just me but yeah. We made that decision and moved back our dates a little bit. So we are September first of the twenty third three days we've got so much content some amazing content. We're doing things a little bit differently than I think what a lot of lot of the. Virtual trade show conferences. You'll see out there in the photo industry or just overall We went out this a little bit differently in that we prerecorded everything and not like prerecord Webcam or zoom kinda thing we prerecorded like shootouts and we had people at our studio We had people at Peter Hurley Studio in New York shooting, and so we've got these amazing shootout through Canon Sony and pro photo. We've got keynote speakers like a tab of the coffee from her famous Bravo show. She is one of our keynotes and she's just incredible Her brother show was Tabitha takes over. We've got mark seller. WHO's one of the most amazing photographers on the planet. You he's done countless numbers of covers for Cube, fair the role I think he's got he's done over one hundred rolling stone cover so I'm really excited of our lineup and we're GONNA do this in a really fun way. It's GonNa be really fun over the three days that we're doing this. We've got kind of a trade show section. We've got a content section. We're GONNA be giving away a ton of stuff and that sue it Nikki closer will be live here in the studio Kinda just introducing a all the classes sue out was just decided a couple of minutes ago. WHO's GonNa do for closing keynote keynote live so we're so most of it is prerecorded, we will have live host, but the content that's come out of this is off the charts I'm really excited. In you when you say you're talking about sue brice. Right, yes? Yes right. These Subaru you should put it in front of her name. Yeah. you WANNA have you set the stage on just a portrait masters for the folks that may not have heard about the conference? What what so Thank you for inviting me to the last one I was I was there in Arizona. Last. Yeah. It was. It was that's the word. It was a blast. Folks that may not have heard of the conference described what what this sort of you know the the soul of the conference is intended to be win it's real versus now when. Virtual or digital doesn't it seem like that was ten years ago. Does right. It's I feel twenty years older I, know. Like as my hair. So the Portrait Masters Conference, it's really a boutique conference in that we have only we cap it at five hundred people We have only nine speakers, one stage, one room. There's no breakout classes we really tried to simplify it and we wanted to give people inexperienced that they never forget. So we added so many different things to this conference that you won't see at other places. For example, we put shooting days in the. Trade show. So some of which are sponsored can have a couple of shooting base Pro Photo will have a couple of shooting bays and basically, and we do a bunch of our own. So basically, it's a model backdrop lighting and you just go and shoot and people went absolutely crazy fort when we when we launched it at it, really we kind of created like a Disneyland photographers almost where you could go in. You could talk to the vendors you could shoot, you could touch. You could feel kind of the things that we love about trade shows. Right you have that opportunity to to touch feel products but also like you could read a camera camera body from any of the vendors, the camera houses and Kinda go around the show and and shoot the networking part of it, which this is one that suit came up with but a red ribbon for someone that hadn't been there to our conference. Before if you're wearing a red ribbon, it was to show everybody else. Hey, come say hi and their brand new they don't know anybody and it was. Just, it ended up being such an incredible experience for people because you go to a trade show, you thought the Portrait Masters amazing show that you wanted to go to it's it's an expensive ticket it's eighteen hundred dollars, but it includes all your your meals, and some other things that we we do. But for the Red Ribbon, it's just amazing 'cause I've I saw a dozen times people just may be sitting by themselves or walking by themselves and other attendants would go and say, hey, how are you come sit with me and and it was just that networking part that that really kind of came out of it, which is really cool.

Some of them not so nice. Direct one thing you said, you said, the Porno for our taper was not minimally invasive I will disagree with that. Because number one that instrument came down to size fifteen, fifteen four. The natural progression of taper in a root canal system is about. Oh three to five. So for just picking off the top of my head is right in there. Yes. Some of enlarging a little bit but. An UN instrumented Masur root of a lower molar. Will Look to you like a twenty five over taper wants his operated with pay still in single calm. Because asked what Mother Nature gave you so that really was minimal minimally invasive nephews at thirty, five, forty and stuff up. Now you're getting out of that program. But Ben Johnson. Johnson as a root canal anytime in the near future, it's going to be done with the best. That we have offer at this point. And that's going to be shaped about halfway two-thirds away down the canal mentally. I would say twenty six, maximum fifteen, O six is okay with me. And then there's going to be claimed at this point in time it'll be cleaned with. With general wave now I. They have a couple of different protocols. Now, a have reduced time protocol I would not do that I would use the full eight minutes the system. I, WANNA. Make sure everything. So there before software, Raider. That's what Ben Johnson would do right now. Okay. So you're you're saying So you answer the gentle wave question I mean obviously. There's no question. That's an amazing clear in fact when I was lecturing in Israel I saw another guy demos something. Very similar with can look like deal micro air abrasions we had, but it was under high-pressure water and when he gave me the demo. On my arms stood up I mean, just I mean you answer that. But what about the CBC T- What WHAT PERCENT OF MOLARS? With that ended on, US I mean is that a is that a standard you wanna three dimensional film on every molar done or every two done is is just for failed into. Well for made every yeah, every retreat but every surgery I would lewis. CBC. T. So I know what I'm facing before. I go into not pre-operative Leone just regular referral, every re-treatment and the reason I'm asking me I obviously know the difference between talking to Ben and Stevie wonder I mean I totally understand vision is but when you talk to a lot of oral radiologists, they do not like all the CBC t especially on kids getting screened for Ortho they're like, are you out of your mind? Some of these kids already had. Two or three CBT's before they get out of high school and the oral radiologists they they. They are not liking that but My Gosh. She you uh, got to go I. I could talk to you for forty days for nine. Ben. Do you think there's anything I should've asked you and I had the man on. The Big Ben of Endo on and I'm just hoping I didn't forget any big obvious questions. No I don't think there's anything to jail at asked me. Would sight one thing particularly. Actors viewers. Always been my philosophy is do the best. For the patient. So. If if it looks like it's too long to curvy to gas to whatever. Call your local window. Honest. You know don't. Don't get into it and screw it up. Because kids. I love your bright eyed and bushy tailed ambition and you WANNA learn Endo and Baseline Perry on you WANNA learn at all. But by God, you can't. There's only so many years. The goal of Jim Dental schools. is to turn out. Graduates who are competent. That's stated in their golds they are competent to do this this or this could not say proficient. So you only gain proficiency once you get out of dental school, go to C. E. Courses Hands on courses is it Why? Did you say I I'll offer come out. See me you know come out and spend the day watch that. But I I get I get I. Got Two questions. Hurry up on because I don't miss out on these question number one. These. Kids I mean they're in the middle of the pandemic the class of covid twenty, twenty, twenty, I mean we just graduated sixty five hundred dentists in the middle of the pandemic and a lot of them are thinking to put in perspective on the classified ads dental town. We've always had about one thousand practices for cell and about five thousand jobs posted for job. Now, there's two thousand practices for cell and only one thousand jobs a lot of the guys over sixty. If they'd never lost their money in the stock market or divorce what other like I'm I'm done So jobs are tough and a lot of are sitting there thinking maybe this is a good time to go to specially school and there were eight when I got out of school. Now there are nine. Now there's a twelve, there's but endo is. The number one demanded oral surgery endo or the top two specialties at all the DS oser bringing in the highest demand and then too much lesser exam perreault pediatric Dentistry Ortho, pro songs, sesia or facial pain oral medicine oral aural, radiology dental public health. My question is what would you say to a dental student who's thinking about wanting to be an ended on `test? Do you still think twenty twenty if she's twenty, five years old at twenty, twenty, two being ended honest. You think what does the future for her look like in your opinion? Actually I think I I I think it's very good. I think. Burgled for several reasons, there's always been. If, you just take ended honest as a group. You know why or practice you're allowed to do ended onyx is so complicated data diving I saw group thought process. Will Number One. If you take the number root canals done every year and divide by six thousand, which is about how many clinicians we actually have the US. Ended honest. Good handle the demand. So that's that's Ridiculous Now. There's some concern that things like like Well. Motari. Nickel titanium and or. Less I general wave. This is this join you make ended onyx. So He'll be doing it. Rapid, this never happened it. It increases our body of knowledge. So I think I think the diagnosis, the implementation, the treatment. Antibiotics, this is the best time in the world. In. History. To have a wreck it out. And so I think this is going to be there..

"It was just like this world opens up to you and now it's just like everything is at the tip of a finger you can get all the games by the top top players in in the world the next day and they're not even the peak of the information that's available because of the computers is. It's amazing we talked a lot about how poker players is our seeming to get even more interested in Chasse from you know people. We've mentioned already like Nick Schulman Olivier to just messing me all the time for basic tips. It's really interesting how that's become such a big trend. There's Bill Perkins who running the tournament. That's awesome shot on the bill for doing that. That's amazing yeah. Charity Chess Tournament coming up in Houston with three three hundred K.. It's Day so there's a lot of that going on. But what about the other way chess players used to be so drawn poker for the quote unquote easy money and hey some of the time they were right now. Is it just really difficult because chess players don't have a lot of money you know the thing that's different is. I knew a lot of successful chess players. There's in in the poker world you could pull yourself up by your bootstraps. You didn't have to upright uproots your life whereas now it's like if you WANNA be a poker pro Wa la I you have to decide if you're gonNA play online or live whereas before I mean anyone could play online. Anyone could get the wraps and you could build up the bankroll and now it just seems so much it's harder. I mean. Part of the reason I quit poker in two thousand eleven was I loved living in New York and I wasn't really willing to move to play so when I was already burnt out but when when black black Friday hit it was just a no brainer to me. I'm not moving to play this game. That's lately driving me crazy to move to a different place to go to a casino every day and it to get your raps like so slowly. That's a big commitment. I mean my experience playing live especially in the past year. I don't play that often but there's still plenty of money to be made for you. Know the analog analytically minded individuals by. There's a cost you know. There's there's a cost in terms of your lifestyle that I think it's a higher the bar in terms of the sacrifice required and getting back to all the content creation and poker. I do think that's part of the reason. Everyone has a side hustle and poker now. Yeah and I also think it depends on what you want. What my advice would be to chess players who want to kind of get into poker or even people who are analytical a play some other game or in math is that you should kind of started as a profitable hobby? That'd be your first call. Yeah for sure which was true. Back in the day to. It's just back in the day. It would become a profitable hobby by accident whereas now it's like you know years of work so Y- yeah but it's excellent advice. Unfortunately I have to take it slow and that can be hard because again if you don't live where there's a casino and you aren't in mistake especially in the US. I'm talking about but I mean from what I hear about Europe. I mean the online games are pretty tough so I'm talking more about. I think it's still viable live online. Nine it's probably more of a case by case basis and of course in the US you have the underground sites but they have their own set of problems. It's harder to do it as a side hustle because you have to live somewhere where it's I'm available well. At least poker stars came to our lives. So that's actually really nice as well and that's five in heavy more guests in my life studio even though it's not relevant to you people are kind of coming through more auto that makes sense. Yeah like I said these days I enjoy PARLAMENTO MAHONE IF I'm watching NBA game. I love to to fire up a few tables on on the IPAD. I'm very lucky that I live live live in a state where that's possible but I don't know my experience comparing like where I am in life online and live. If I were to ever pursue poker would it would have to be live but it's not going to happen either way that actually ties into my next question. If you were suddenly given one million dollars in a briefcase just play poker you had to play poker at the and try to to build it. What would be your strategy? Well that gets to the issue of These private games. Of course I mean I. I'm guessing I have heard all the episodes of the grid. I don't hear them coming up that often but I mean unfortunately that's the golden goose these days very often where I am in life if I were to try to build a poker bankroll whether it was from a million or from. I'm where I was. I would want to emphasize quality of game over quantity. That would be my number one thing as I told you I enjoy studying so I would love to study poker. I mean again separate for life. It's not going to happen but I would love to study poker ten hours a week and play one or two nights a week. And that's it you know but anything that involves like hardcore grinding would just it. It started to eat away at my soul in two thousand eleven poker again. I love it but certainly I was. I was ready to quit when I quit and I think that would happen again if I went back to playing full time right right of of course this hypothetical you'd be forced to spend the million on poker. No and I enjoy. I enjoy playing but yeah for me it would I would definitely want to skew towards higher stakes wchs and you know I enjoy the process of trying to get better but I wouldn't want to try to compete with the elite in poker. They're just so amazing. I I still think game selection. Is You know. It can't be overemphasized no matter what your financial situation is and that ties into this whole earlier discussion. We had about network game which which is an underrated skill in poker and Chasse. Not only because it can help your chest game and your poker game but also because maybe if you go into some other career can help absolutely. I mean I've seen a high stakes players online say I think it was. He's a high-stakes pillow player L.. Ashby said it was one of these little memes on twitter where it was like. You shred some shape sacred cow in your industry or something like that like you're supposed to sub tweet or quote tweet something with like something that's perceived wisdom but isn't actually true and he said something like the the the connections you'll make from playing high stakes. Poker cash games will be more valuable to you than than the cash games themselves which I totally believe having some friends who move in those Oh circles and you know still to this day and are playing with a lot of successful people from outside the poker world so this was a tweet which was supposed to be real advice or it was Israel advice but it was like against the it was supposed to be against the perceived wisdom so he was saying it's more valuable to make friends with these successful people from outside of poker then then it is to actually just win money from them that's fascinating and you know. I think that is interesting. Because it also the type of person who believes that and actually internalizes that had respect is probably more likely to get invited to the game right yeah. You don't want to be too cynical about it either. I feel like I mean again. I'm not in this world but it seems to me like if you want to play play these these high stakes games. It's like you need to be friendly and make it entertaining. But you don't Wanna be phony so again as an introvert I would find that challenging. You know I don't i. I don't need to sit there and wear headphones. But you know it's hard to change your personality. Did you. Actually take the Myers Briggs tasks in did you find yourself lake high on the introverts cow. I yeah it's been a long time. I don't remember what it was called but I was definitely an introvert. Well maybe now after all this work with the perpetual podcast. You'll have shifted a little bit. Do you think like your personality. Allie has actually changed. Or you've just met these challenges I would say I've met the challenges like if there's you know a party I mean you you know I'm turning forty three later this month. Mary two little kids so I don't go to a lot of parties but if there was a party where they're going to be a lot of people I didn't know the the apprehension that I used to feel like single in my twenties would still be there. So it's more about like professional responsibilities in public speaking and and stuff like that. Is there still something like that would make you scared It's more just I wouldn't. It wouldn't seem like fun you know. It's just if something it doesn't suit your personality. I mean that was the beauty of online poker back in the day. As like you're using your brain and you're making a living. I mean it was just an incredible blessing. As as I'm greg among others have alluded to and I asked you earlier whether winning this hand would have changed your life but you know what about the flip side. Would you have been where you are now. If it wasn't for poker like like how do you think it would have changed things you know. That's a question. I wrestled with a lot because you didn't pick up poker. It's hard to say because I was enjoying teaching chess. When poker came along and I was thinking starting to think I might WanNa do my whole life but I was also young enough where I could go to graduate school or something like that and whereas when Black Friday came in two thousand eleven I had taken an interest in the financial markets and I wanted to try trading but I also at that time was thirty four and I could've gone to graduate school but it felt like on the late side so poker? It's possible poker. Took me away from sort of Some sort of advanced degree like in an MBA or law school or something like that but one never knows. Only thing that you didn't really succeed in life. Is This Day training. Yeah Yeah I tried to trade for a living for five years and it's funny because in poker. I was good at competing but I also kind of knew my place in the ecosystem. I was pretty good but I never considered myself self elite and when I played Online especially I game selected so I was pretty successful in just not playing the toughest games I wasn't you know again I played limit holdem so I wasn't playing heads up with Matt Horne Linka. Whenever I ended up in a game with him he was just so much better than me? Clearly so I had that knowledge in the poker world but then I decided to enter the toughest most competitive field in the world financial markets and it was just it came from a place of love. I read every book I could get my hands on. I was building spreadsheets. I was studying. That's when I took up meditating which of like a lot of your guests have and it..

"He was even back then. They did a good job. That was one thing that production generally and re watching it I thought was pretty good especially James because he's not really doing with the strategy for. Shanna is kind of funny any of that. You look back fourteen years later and it seems like it's quite similar from his end right. You mentioned that after that you punt it off with the king three off and Yeah and it's like I again. I like limp. Shove this like what. What the hell was I doing? You know it's painful for me to watch just generally I was trying to see flops and when when the situation would arise is where it was getting more expensive to see flaps. I just didn't adjust properly. I should've just stuck with the plan of a need to see flops. If you call in you know these are the days of exploitive poker poker you know to the maximum so if I had limped called with pocket seven's is way better than limply raising. I mean. Of course I could have just raised in that hand and later I mean even and when I was short by the time I lived shoved the king three hand I was probably down to about twenty big blind so okay. There's not a lot of wiggle room. But I still felt like I could prob- The guy but in watching Ching it. It just felt like I ran out of gas. I didn't explicitly feel pressure. I didn't it wasn't a conscious thought that I was feeling pressure for the final table but I just played so much worse than I did the rest of the tournament. So That's interesting and I think the sevens hand if you look back on it. Do you feel like what was it that you think tilted you about that the hand was there a particular street that you think like was haunting you or was it just kind of like generalized sense that somehow you put your debt you definitely the latter because actually actually as I sit now and. I'm not a solver person. I have you know I'm like ninety percent out of the poker world at this point so I don't know what a solver would say In terms of how how to play it but when I started watching it the other day and thinking through this hand it wasn't obvious to me like it wasn't one hundred percent obvious like what I should have done. You know off so it was more just a general feeling of like the strategy of putting sixty percent of your chips and unfolding Probably wasn't optimal. I mean I see what you're saying like making the expletive plays in that Hanley made a lot of sense to you even many years later it did seem to me that your bed on the flap is a little big if your plan is sometimes fault because it was like it was closer to fifty percent. I think than thirty percent I mean I left a lot of my babies in the pot for shore. Disappointing that made it difficult from trump from that point forward and so it's interesting as like a chess player. The heads up would normally be like the best part of your game right now. We think as a the natural. Yeah heads player. I've one online tournaments and stuff and You know playing mid and high stakes limit HOLDEM. I played a lot of short handed. So Oh I regret never working on my heads up. No limit game I I have a sense for sort of the The dancing that goes on and heads up poker occur. Generally I mean the the sort of feeling each other out and probing people and stuff like that so that makes me even more disappointed with how I played. Well how so many years later still a little bit disappointed. And how do you. You're the one that dread stood up and I was just living my life with my wife and kids but would your life change if you had one this. Um I'm headed match It's pretty unlikely I had A. I had a healthy bankroll then. More money would have been nice. The only thing I can think of is I probably would have been a little bit more aggressive wrestle about playing tournaments then Specially EP tease If I had one that tournaments were never my my soul emphasis and I probably only and not because of bankroll reasons but I probably only played about ten to fifteen more big buying events in my Po- career after that night and I had some results to. I just got tired of traveling. And didn't you know the Joosten seem worth the squeeze to me but I suspect if I had had even more success. That might have been different. I I had a previous guests on my show. Peter Jackson says that a lot of really good talented poker players in games players are really hard on themselves. They make a mistake and they're not nice enough to themselves when they make bacon above the rim. Play as chess player we. I think we're very aware of that as well. Because it's so easy to blender and it's Kinda hard to go above the Raymond Assert incensing feels obvious after the back What's your perspective on that and do feel like maybe when you look back? You're guilty of that that same the psychological thing. Maybe I mean overall I when I got back to Brooklyn and sort of assessed I mean you know. I'm I was happy with second place you know. It's a lot of money it's hard to. It's hard to fixate too much on misplacing the hand so certainly I regretted it but it. You didn't animate me. It's not something. I spent a lot of time ruminating about in subsequent months and years so it was more like immediately after it tilted. You but it afterwards you were forgiving and like the bounty exactly you know I was GONNA lose a decent amount of chips that hand it just the setup in and heads up poker if you get pocket seven. The other person gets a stack if you go to a flop in the flops Jack. Five six like you're going to lose some chips so as you say I could have loss. Maybe twenty percent fewer twenty five percent fewer. But you know I was an online grinder. I'm just firing up. The computer playing mostly limit holdem and winning and losing in you know winning or losing thousands of dollars a day. You know sometimes five figures so it bothered me. But I didn't think about it too much. I felt like when I saw you play. You look like you're very focused and almost like a little angry a like but in a good way that you were like aggressive like generally like just more like get an aggressive like a you want to take this down you want to beat. The other guy is that kind of similar to how you play chess or did you feel like in poker. They aggression came Matt even more. I don't think that was that representative of my poker overall. I have to say in chess. I think I'm my best strength. I have not playing playing a lot of. I'm not playing much competitive chess at this point but I always felt like I punched a little above my weight based on sort of a competitive spirit. Not Giving up up and maybe some of the psychological aspects of chess. I felt like we're better than just sort of like raw tactics and knowledge and poker. I also think that was the case for me being focused and like you know ready to think at any moment yeah competitive for for sure. I mean I wasn't angry angry but I definitely like winning. Preferred winning to lose for sure interesting that you say that because I feel like that's true of lot of Young players they make up their lack of knowledge and fighting spirit energy at the board sits flash as we call that now that you're the host of the perpetual podcast and you even have this bonus shows on Greek books in Chasse. You're accumulating so much more knowledge. Are you feeling like a reversal at all like that. You know a lot about chassis and you're not always able to execute it well first of all that was a masterful plug. Thank you and second of all. Yeah I feel a lot different but I think mainly it's because I'm a parent it just changes your perspective about everything so I just don't have that killer instinct. I I wish I could play competitive chess. I Love I mean could of course I love competitive chess but I have have a wife and kids and my wife works full time and professional responsibilities so I don't get to play much chess and even poker now that I live in New Jersey once in a while I'll play some pot pot limit Omaha which these days is my preferred game on a poker stars New Jersey or sometimes I go to parks. I'm still a winning player. But definitely that fifth gear I feel like is what is harder for me to find. Now that I'm a parent and a poker hobbyist rather than professional you mean. It's just hard to care enough to like build up this killer instinct. Yeah exactly and in those marginal spots where you're like. His ranges capped her ranges capped. I should probably like you know. pull the trigger here when I'm not In it every day and I'm not like an it's basically blowing off steam from for me. It's harder to do the more difficult thing. Do the uncomfortable comfortable thing. And what about the challenge of being a parent cause a lot of people who grew up during the poker boom right now becoming parents or thinking of it or have small children the distance you have for money you know. You're not playing these big tournaments where you could like five hundred extra by an but if you were do you think that would be more difficult. Yeah the the money makes a difference to as I said I mean. I'm lucky that I have so much respect for people like trevor who are parents. Grinding cash games supporting a family. That just seems really hard to me. Even even for the super successful people it does seem hard. I mean I'm lucky in that you know any money I make AAC from. Poker is basically going to be supplementary income but I still do think about it a little bit more but it's hard for me to deconstruct to what extent it's based on being a parent versus just based on not being a professional. Because it used to be I was just in it all the time so I had the swings all the time whereas now it's just when you're playing once a week you have have a lot more perspective on what the thousand dollar bluff could buy as opposed to win. Your every hand is like that you know right not having a really as much of a segregated aided bankrupt yeah exactly that makes sense and going back to the hand no please. Don't I'm just kidding. Most the atmosphere like had an EP tea back in two thousand and six. I know that there are probably a lot more lot more partying than there is today because a lot of people are pretty serious about the poker and there's so many events yeah yeah if you go to an ap you can literally play all day. Every day I mean there seemed to be a decent amount of partying definitely a lot of young European on-line pros who were good players. I'm I'm definitely proud of getting through that field. I had good results in some some bigger fields and I felt like that one was the one was amongst the toughest competition even though in in terms of lake name recognition it wasn't the highest one thing I will say as I found the people there to be friendlier than generally did on the American circuit. I had my small circle goal of friends in the American circuit. And you know I knew. Some limit holdem grinders from from online. But I made some friends on that trip. We didn't stay friends but the people were very friendly and definitely willing to have a drink or two. You can say it's interesting that you say that 'cause I find the poker community that'd be pretty friendly today. Even though people talk what about the glory days and how much more fun it was and how much more friendly and partying it was. I actually think for somebody like you today might be more comfortable for you because everybody everybody loves and hurts right. Okay glad to hear it and yeah one thing I should mention in this. Is I think useful advice for any young pros. Listening is I'm I'm an introvert by by nature. Some have have called me a nerd. Maybe even in the last one minute and I just generally didn't network that much you know. I traveled to a lot of tournaments. La Vegas I even had a place in Vegas for a while. And I had my little circle of friends and I wasn't really trying to make friends and that I think when I ended up quitting poker a lot of it was just I didn't feel like I had enough of a network to sort of push through poker getting a little bit harder. That's some advice that when I started my chest podcast as I got back into the chess world years later I was able to sort of learn to push through my insecurity. And just do what you needed to do. And you know it's not necessarily a selfish motive it makes your life you know. Obviously having friends enriches one's life and having connections in riches enriches one's life generally but I think it might have made a difference in my poker career. If I had been a little more networked with the other travelling pros yes because people drop out a poker all the time. I think. That's what people don't realize that I also agree with you. In retrospect so clear so many people drought poker or stop playing live poker. At least that you might think that you have.

"ben johnson" Discussed on The Grid

"Data. Hello everyone and welcome back after the grid. I have a very special guest today. Somebody who I've been friends with for a very long time from back in the day of Middle School Chess Tournaments light in my billy studio. It's a Ben Johnson of the perpetual podcast podcast. Actually that's in. Its third year and interviews top test personalities. The top players in the World Ben is also a national master many time member of the National Championship Chess Team Masterman and a practicing coach. But what some people. We'll have forgotten about ben is that he was also a very successful professional poker player for seven years and thus he comes in the grade that disgust a hand for two thousand six six at the third season of the European poker tour in Baden Austria. It was a five thousand euro event with over three hundred players and he brings us a hand when when he was all the way to heads up. Then welcome to the show. Thanks turn. I'm a big Fan of the grid and I'm excited to talk about this hand that I played terribly thirteen years ago. Well how you're you're not the first. I want to talk about a terrible hand. In fact lex Bell House was my very first guest. Also talked about I heard I've heard all the interviews. I heard the one with LEX. I played with him. Many moons ago. Yeah it was nice to hear humility from someone who's done so well for himself and I think that is actually a trend. It doesn't always match but I think the the better the player the the more likely they were to give me a hand. They'd terribly oh so. In that case I'm a great player. I played this pretty badly. So let's hear it. Set it up for us. Where were you in terms of your poker career? You're how long have you been playing. And how did you end up in this fight. Gay Euro Event in Austria. Okay so this is two thousand six. I was a fulltime poker pro from two thousand and four to two thousand eleven. Of course your brother. Greg is one of my oldest friends and best friends and he's been on your show he and a couple of other chess players. I all sort sort of came up together and became poker pros together kind of pulled ourselves up by our bootstraps. But by this by this time I was already pretty successful professional. I played a lot of tournaments. I came in thirtieth in the main event or third around thirtieth one year before I had any clue what I was doing gradually got better. I was I played a lot of Shoutout to are some of your other guests I'm a dinosaur. So I played a lot of mid to high stakes limit. Holdem online did pretty well with that had some tournament results and basically in terms of MTTI's he's they weren't my primary focus. But I would try to play about five year especially if I could satellite online otherwise I would just play the main event and I'd like to go to L. A.'s play poker classic but I liked living in New York and I wasn't like a fulltime tournament person but I want any PT Botmc on poker stars and I manage to hoodwink our mutual friend. Yakov Hirsch into coming with me to Austria so we went and we played the tournament and Lo and behold I had the best result of my life so oh and it was a tough tournament. There were a lot of strong players. Lot of sort of well known players like L. Key Bertran Gospel anti-black and Italian Kid Barrio Areso Minneapolis. Who went to the final table? Lot of tough players. It was a tough field that I went through and then I got two heads up and it was against not the toughest player in the field. Nice guy but not a professional and I think I don't want to bury the lead but I think I might have relaxed a little too much with that rambling intro. Out of the way the actual hand was I had pocket. Seven's the small blind it. This already locked up. Played a big score for yourself right. Yeah so I'm getting. At least I think I ended up. Spoiler alert came in second so I ended up getting and three hundred twenty thousand or something like that wire transfer in my bank account a few days later so that was pretty sweet. Yeah and I was about double that so that that was the situation relation in terms of chip count He had about one point nine million and I had about one point three million. We didn't have a ton of play. The blinds were about fifteen thousand in thirty thousand with a three thousand anti so. That was the situation and it was very early in the heads up match This hand and you are a little over. Forty bigs deep. Actually a jess played in interesting hand right before this handed. So you've got two pairs in a row. You had tens of previous hand and you actually made a big over bet on the turn so a sophisticated play. You were well ahead of well. I might have been ahead in some respects but overall when I when I watched the final table. I'm pretty leap proud of how I played the rest of the tournament but heads up. I didn't play well at all. I heard your interview with Matt Matrix where he was talking about Playing Brian Hastings and the NBC ABC Heads Up Championship and he was talking about how important it is because to work on your heads up game and that definitely resonated with me. I mean I had one other second place finish in Lake preliminary tournament at the Poker Classic. I was prior to that but other than that I mean I had some influence six figures scores but only a couple no final tables and because cash games were more of my emphasis. I didn't really put in the work that I should have in two heads up and thus I am not op. Proud of Corey played the sand. Okay so you're you got sevens or in the small blind your little over forty of eggs deep and you're you mentioned earlier that you felt you relaxed a little bit because because you're in this great situation in you're not against one of the top professional you know I would call him a solid casual player. Basically my overall impression of him was he's he's GonNa play fairly straightforward. He had amassed the chip lead. He flopped nuts three times at the final table so it was just one of those things where he he had some favorable situations and my basic impression was I can pro him a little bit and try to take tips from him so that was sort of my game plan but I didn't really have time to step back and and Lada on a more granular level. So I in the hand you mentioned prior I had pocket tens and limp because I was just trying to see flops and same thing with the pockets get sevens I limp and then he raises and already. I didn't have the hand mapped out in my head and now I'm thinking well. This was my thinking at the time so so again blinds or fifteen thousand thirty thousand I complete to thirty thousand. He makes it a little over. I think he made it a one hundred thirty straight. And now I felt like my hand would be to under wrapped if I just call with sevens and shoving just seems egregious especially because if I ever get called. I'm in terrible shape and I think I have a skill edge over this guy so at this point I re- raised all save the editorializing for later but basically I didn't expect a call in that spot for from him he was is going to be out of position and didn't feel is going to be trying to see a ton of flops out of position so I felt like he would either shove fold and given the way he played I was comfortable taking a tight fold if he shoved but of course he calls so onto the flop. We go so at branch of the tree you had anticipated. You're expecting this hand to somehow PREF- up. Yeah I was expecting it to end pre flop and of course there's a lot I would change but anyway let's let's talk about the hand that and then not live through my regrets so we go to the flop and the flop. Is Jack Five six rainbow. He now checks to me and I believe I had about nine hundred thousand thousand behind and of course he covers reasonably comfortably again. I mean it's a pretty good flop for my hand but I'm already not feeling great about the situation Shen I'm thinking. What kind of hand is he going to Raise my limp and then call with and it's a fairly strong range. Basically King Queen possibly pocket pairs in my neighborhood. Ace Jack stuff like that is not a great spot but I do feel like I can get the information I need so I bet about a third of pot I think I bet about Three fifty ish and he pretty quickly shoved so this is just gross. I've put like sixty percent of my chips. Send and now. I don't think ahead in the hand but on the other hand Puckett Sevens on a Jack five six rainbow flop the it's in the upper echelon of flops. I could hope for in that that situation so there I was and you thought for quite a bit and you ended up making the fall. Yeah I tank folded. I mean my overarching read on on this player was just. He's not going to run a big bluff in this situation. I mean the only really Combo you could strain to give him that that I'm beating is he could have like seven eight suited. Did something like that and be pushing an open industry. Draw these days we would say I'm blocking seven eight suited. Those days blocking was like maybe a thing in pot limit Omaha but not but not in two thousand six and no limit holdem. That thought wouldn't have crossed my mind So I just felt like a you know I'm beat here. Basically always so the word blacker occurred in exists in that way in Nolan Holden parlance searching. It didn't occur to you that the fact that you had sevens made it less likely for him to have seven eight. Yeah I mean I would love to sit it here and tell you that it did but it. It really really didn't so that's interesting because it shows the importance of language and creating ideas because obviously you were a very highly correct poker player and because of your chest Brang background took the very studious approach to eight. But even you hadn't even thought of that concept right. Yeah I hadn't the concept I mean. Of course I thought specifically about seventy eight in that situation but it was more you know combining the probability of I. I didn't think you would raise my limp. Then even if he does raise my lamp. Didn't think you would call. And even if he did all that my read on him was he's not necessarily just going to shove like he might just check cau- aw with an open industry draw so put all those things together and the fact that I'm blocking the seven eight is like even if I had. If had even occurred to me it would still be like fourth on the list of reasons to discount seven possibility and I'm losing to olive his value hands and I didn't think he was ever straight up bluffing. When you're in these high intense situations it's like the list list of things that kind of come to you first priority is and that just was not there and so you you fold it and tell me a little bit about how you felt after the hand and reflecting on what you think you should have done better even in that time obviously not like right? I'm traveler two years later. Yeah well well it's funny. You should mention because then I watched the final table for the first time in over a decade preparing for this interview and I had been on camera here and there and poker but I hadn't pin like properly miked up on a final table and our Yaacov was there and he was like functioning as my coach cheerleader. Of course he's he's pretty Pretty Savvy with situations like this like he's good at reading people. He's good at giving advice. There's a moment where I go over to him and I'm like oh I just butchered this hand. Bloated the pop put sixty percent of my chips and and then folded so clearly I was not totally over it and in fact I put it off the rest of my stack later. We're with King three off so if you ever need king three off we lament me. Miss playing the biggest tournament even more. So that's where my head space was after that hand. Yeah I I saw that. I actually watched to the end. The it was very interesting kind of like historical time capsule in Poker and poker commentary as we Jones and James Harden and. We're both very active on the poker tour with James. Still the voice of European poker tour and how professional and polished Polish..

Their Dark Materials

"About a year ago. We released an episode in which I interviewed the author. Cassius unclear about her book. The secret lives of color. It was a conversation about the history and origins of different colors throughout human existence. During our talk does he and I covered everything from a type of purple. That squeezed from sees nails do a shade of green. That could literally kill you but there was one pigment in particular from that episode that one of our producers. Here's here nine hundred hasn't been able to stop thinking about because it's bonkers producer. Vivian lay. It's called Vance a black. It's a pigment that reaches the level of darkness. That's so intense. It's kind of upsetting. It's so black. It's like looking at a hole cut out of the universe. It's so black. It's like looking at portal into another dimension of nothingness. It's so black that if you stare at it long enough you'll see your own death. I keep going these metaphors or crummy but it it's it's like this philosophical abyss. Your is just fall into it. This is Adam. Rogers journalist writer wired and I write books sometimes to Rogers has written about van to block for wired because when anyone sees with not just Vivian. They think it's bonkers. It makes you rethink think. What black means fantastic is striking when you look at it even when you look at a picture of it because it looks like something colored black it looks like an absence Vanna black swallows nearly all visible light in gives back no reflection so every contour crease of whatever it's applied to disappears it has this ought affect of making something look two dimensional while at the same time as if you could fall right through it? It has the same feeling looking looking at it as a color that looking over the edge of a building or something does he actually do. Feel kind of a physiological response to that does not look right that looks unreal. It looks real. VENTA black was created by the tech industry for the tech industry. But this strange dark material would actually go on to turn the art world on its head They're black pigments out there and then there are super black pigments. That are so dark. They need to be created in a laboratory. These super blacks excrete such extreme levels of darkness. Because they're made up of something called Carbon Nanotubes or C. N.. Tease Carbon nanotubes are pretty much. Exactly what they sound like teeny tiny microscopic tubes combranch of carbon atoms just a few nanometers wide for reference. A single human hair is about eighty to a hundred thousand nanometers. animators Y T materials are made up of forests of these microscopic carbon tubes. I'd say it's like a field of gross. Okay and the grass is a carbon nanotubes in about one six thousand two thickness of your hair and there's about a billion of them per square centimeter. This is Ben Johnson the founder and CTO Joe of Serena Systems which specializes in carbon nanotubes technology. He's the kind of person who even as a kid you'd expect to become the founder and CTO of of a carbon nanotubes technology company. When I went through school I spent my time trying to make gunpowder type rocket And then I kind of went to develop liquid. Propellant systems is that we're all the dangerous and needs to go bang and kind of not very safe back then. People didn't really care that much about safety and they go yeah. This sounds like a really cool idea. Goods this is not a really cool idea. Jensen began working in the nanomaterials field in two thousand four back then. CNT's had a lot of promise in the space industry because super black coatings could be really useful inside of satellites telescopes and optical imaging technology but carbon nanotubes. Technology wasn't quite where it needed to be yet. CNT's these weren't like paint. They had to be grown onto a surface in a special type of reactor at an absurdly high temperature. High enough to destroy. Most of the things you might I wanna grow them on Johnson and his team worked on it for years and finally managed to develop a new reactor that allowed them to grow see and tease at a much lower temperature and in doing so they had one unexpected but delightful side effect they made it blacker one day. We go to some data back. They said back. Do you realize what you've done you've this material. And it's got almost unmeasurable low reflectance and I was a K.. What does that mean? It meant that Serena systems had created the darkest substance on earth material that absorbed ninety nine point nine six five percent of light. He couldn't tell from the numbers but Jensen new the cat was really special after one of his researchers showed him a sample said. Look I'm like okay. What am I looking at? It just looks black and said look and I'm putting my face right up beside it and the guy's looking laughing at me alum gain a it just looks black. And then he did something that just told me with nailed it. He took an object of the surface that was three dimensional so before matt helpless put my eyes to it. I couldn't tell us anything that was just flat. Danson black was so dark that it almost felt like it defied Clyde the laws of physics we weren't looking to create the world's blackest material. That's a thing Johnson and his team decided to give this new flashy C. N. T. of flashing flashing name Vance a black which stands for vertically aligned nanotubes array black as black as Vance. A black was surrey. NANNA systems systems still saw it as a niche material so when they launched their product at the Farnborough Airshow in two thousand fourteen. They saw themselves as small fry. Farm Farm Bureau is a big deal. In the aerospace industry Serena Systems was presenting their nanomaterial at the same event as the Boeing dreamliner military jets and a paragliding car so Jensen wasn't expecting to make much of a splash. But that's not what actually happened was just surreal. We had camera crews literally all the major networks filming looking at these materials because knowing it ever seen it demonstrated like this before people were freaking out. over Vance a black. We just didn't expect it and my son was like well. He's just black. Why are we getting these people going crazy about it? People were amazed by the depth of darkness achieved by Van Black and wanted to know. More soon enough Serena systems was receiving all sorts of requests from people who wanted a piece of it. Aw People wanting to coach because people want to coat dice in it coat bodies in it. We had a very well known youtuber. The spent quite asking us saying can can you please live on youtube aside from that time. potty Canadian what really caught Jensen's attention was the amount of interest is that came from another field in desperate need of super black pigment. The Art World in those first couple of weeks alone Surrey Nano Systems received saved over four hundred inquiries from artists wanting to use it in their work the number of people in the art world that wanted to use it that that was absolutely absolutely crazy time. Actually because we're a company set up to do engineering and space not accompany the setup to create products for artists to us working with artists. Artis was just not something Serena systems was equipped to do because Vance black was incredibly hard to work with sure they could grow at a much lower temperature than before that was still about four hundred and thirty degrees centigrade. Cat's were also really delicate and can scrape off easily but most importantly any collaboration with artists would take up time in tech resources. Because anything coated with Banda black would have to be grown in Serena systems reactors just wasn't a practical proposition for the company that said an ish is an incredibly charismatic. Chat with an amazing vision and and his life's work has just been phenomenal an eastern as in a niche Kapoor. Who if you haven't heard of him? Before is very famous so for decades has been one of the premier contemporary artists working today says Adam Rogers again use the kind of person who will do a whole gallery takeover teen modern you know. He's he's a really big deal. We should know here that initiative did not respond to an interview request for this story but he's probably best known for creating Chicago's iconic cloud gate sculpture also known as the bean and and he has been knighted by Queen Elizabeth for his contributions to visual arts. And when Vance black debuted he wanted it. So he reached out Serena Systems and invited Jensen to check out a studio or walked into his studio and I was literally speeches or what I saw given his body of work. Kapoor seemed uniquely suited for this material. There is in a way a constant continuous process that gives up the same questions. This is a niche poor. In a video he released about one of his pieces titled Dissension. So those those questions are for me. The void object or the non object many questions about color questions about space and time. Because I really do believe that for there to be new objects has to be new. Space Kapoor has has a fascination with blacks capacity to make something both exist and not exist at the same time his work. A lot of it deals with voight. It deals with colored blocks and try to understand the relationship between color space

"All right so for those of you that might not be totally into this story or understanding where it's come from this was totally trending on twitter all day a and it just so happens that I spoke at the conference where this is the center of controversy so there was a horrific museum video where you're donald trump massacres fake news media now essentially there's these videos that go around and there's this community of people that love the president so much they'll take popular videos superimpose the face of Donald trump onto somebody kickboxing or somebody with a lightsaber fighting people they disagree with so I guess the most this one was the CNN which with precise which was the body slam when the wwe one because the president shared that one and so this particular video was from the movies kingsman which is about the British Secret Service or something starring Colin Firth actually doesn't fourteen. I've never enjoyed those movies I it's called the dark comedy only for some people only some people very cheesy I never liked that movie right somehow killing people's funny but no there is a whole genre it appeals to a certain the demographics never liked the not Nora Nora I've tried to watch it a couple times is just not really my my genre so anyway this memoir so those that don't seem to have to define what a menas because we do have some people okay so mean is what is the best way to find a mean kind of like when you know it Ben Johnson Adam Benny Johnson chief creative officer turning point USA so look amine is a picture or a video that satirizes or explains an issue in a short sound bite that usually his comedy or uses wit I guess that's a good way to put it that it turns it on its head flips it sure Iran nick insightful. Almost here's the best way I can describe it it's the Internet's equivalent of political cartoons that a good way to put it share okay a modern digital essentially this scene in kingsman which I don't understand how this scene was really funnier incite fuller enjoyable the watch but allegedly there was a scene where somebody walks into a church and kills a bunch of people that was the scene Church massacre and they superimposed Donald Trump's face to be the guy that's killing everyone and then he's killing the fake news media CNN MSNBC as well as Democrats like Barack Obama Nancy Pelosi unless we totally denounces videos unequivocally and totally I don't think it's funny to show violence against other people I think it's it's not my not my taste I don't think it's funny people I find that Kinda dark humor interesting I'm not one of those people however he let's just get through some facts they say this was shown at the president's Miami resort so all of the media covering this is insinuating as if the president approved this or this was at his resort he didn't at all okay so I was at this event it was a unique event it was one with a lot of energy and a lot of people that were really excited to be there and Donald Trump junior Sarah Sanders governor on descent data's thankful to be invited you know so this video is shown in a side room in a breakout room against a wall in a very kind of make shift CAPAC- acidy and Don Jr. Ron to Santa Sarah Sanders myself and Corey Lewandowski knew nothing of it we didn't know about this until the news actually broke and now we're being lumped into this I might have spent forty minutes at this event basically the entire time I was at the event was when I was speaking in and out and Laura Ingraham that night and then I flew to Detroit super early the next morning I didn't hang around it was not but they're acting as if we were behind this entire thing the headlines are all all sort of inferring it's like Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Donald trump junior charlie kirk and this

So I have always been a four taper girl. You know I that's what I kinda refer to myself as often. So you have the bigger file systems. I'm just going to name one off the top of my head, which, and I'm not bashing here, but pro tapers. Conventionally have had the variable tapers and in their preps. Look like this the profiles on when you buy the four series because I'm an oath four girl. You're conserving the root structure at the top, the cervical Denton that is so important for the restorative dentist. And I've actually been saying this for a decade in a half that is super important to structure, and I love the root canals can look so pretty with the variable tapers, but there's no reason to take that much of the cervical the ridiculous Denton away, we really should respect that tooth and respect the restorative options in, I believe, as long as you're cleaning, well, consider the smaller tapers consider the four taper I finish on wars in. I would like to say that I'm extremely successful. I don't retreat my work very often. And you've got to consider the fact that when you remove excess to structure ridiculously that's what leads to fractures strip purse weakening of the two structure. And then obviously when there is a post, that's added to everything that's just been taken away the tooth kits very weak. We've gotta respect what we were born with what the patient was born with.

The White House announced that the medal of freedom which is given to people who make especially meritorious contributions to the national interests of the United States will include Roger Staubach this time around. There are six others. Also, getting the metal some of them posthumously, including the late Antonin Scalia, associate Justice of the supreme court, but also Elvis and Babe Ruth among those and Alan page who played with the Vikings, and then went on to become a member of the Minnesota state supreme court. We have the complete list at KRLD dot com. Central American migrants who've reached the US Mexico border say they'll wait for the others to arrive before making their next move. But in the meantime, some Mexican residents in Tijuana protested, the migrants camping near the Pacific in their neighborhood and one of them to move to a government shelter that was yesterday on the other side of the border US border patrol agents with San Diego's skyline in the distance. I'm Ben Johnson is executive director of the American immigration lawyers association. Ben where are we on this? That's really good question. I don't know where we are. Because unfortunately, I think politics has really been the driving force in in in the situation more than, you know, sensible policy. I I think this is being used as a political wedge issue, probably on both sides, quite frankly. And and I think that's clouded. The fact that there has been for a long time. There have been lots of options available in dealing with these folks, look, this isn't the first time this has ever happened in the world. There are lots of people around the world who are moving from places that are dangerous or or were there. No opportunities. Those kinds of migration patterns and channels are not new we know how to respond to this. There was no reason for us to wait until this crowd of people came to our borders. We could have in fact should have dealt with this crisis long before it got to the US borders could could've put together a place for those folks. To be a processing center in Mexico or somewhere along the way and began looking at who are these folks, what are they entitled to what's happened to them? So I think it's unfortunate that we've played politics with this long enough that we've we've allowed those folks to get to our border. Now that they're here. I think the other thing we have to keep in mind and dealing with these folks we have to recognize they came from the most dangerous place on earth that isn't a war zone. Right. Whether the person in the White House has the last name, Trump, Obama or Bush, the fact is congress and the administer the administration's haven't addressed the asylum question, they haven't addressed the immigration laws. Let's be very clear. Donald Trump is not the first president to be getting the situation wrong. President Obama did not deal with this situation. Effectively. I mean, I think it's fair to criticize the president for the fact that he has he has made this issue more political than it has been before and language is offensive and and counterproductive, but he's not he does not have a monopoly on MSN this up. And you're absolutely right. This to solve this problem requires not only a affirm steady moral compass by the president. But it also requires leadership and action on the part of congress. Now, that's in terms of our our broader immigration system, but we have the laws in place to deal with this. This group of people look this is five thousand people. That's you know, that's about an average sized high school football game for tonight in Texas. This is not a a group of people that are so large.
