Who Is Max Wood, Former United States Attorney for Georgia?
"It is my joy to welcome on max wood max. Welcome to the podcast today. Thank you for having me, Doug. This is a real pleasure. Let's start off with a little bit of background. I always like to go, how did you get here kind of thing? And I just shared, you know, in our intro here that we share the air force. We've retired. I think I was a colonel out of the air force reserve at Robbins where I'm actually stationed as well. Sort of, how do you get your background? You also a UGA law grad go dogs. We're all happy still the national champions. We got 30 something days left. We're happy. Yeah. Enjoy. There we go. Give us a little bit of the background for our listeners on who you are and just sort of where you come from. I grew up in Clayton county just south of Atlanta. I went to Lagrange college, and then I went to the university of Georgia law school. I clerked for a judge up in Rome, Georgia right out of law school. And then I decided to become an air force judge advocate and try to try to see a little bit of the world. I was an air force judge advocate for a number of years, got out, stayed in the reserve National Guard, went back and forth between the two. And ended up settling and making Georgia. I was in private practice and making Georgia for a few years. Then I was appointed by president George W. Bush to be the United States attorney for the middle district of Georgia, in 2001, and that really changed my life. I got involved in the federal prosecution. I got involved in political world and while there I deployed to Iraq and Baghdad Iraq to represent the Department of Justice at the embassy. They were very few United States attorneys who had military background and they recognized I'd be an asset. I said I would do it. And that changed my life too. And while serving in Iraq at the embassy, overseeing all the Department of Justice, we had 250 people over there dug at that time. We would work on court system prison system. Police system training, all kinds of things.

"clayton" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"But they chose Atlanta and was that the moment that everything changed? I think so in particular, William hartsfield, whose name is one of the two names along with Maynard Jackson on the airport now, hartsfield very much promoted the idea that the airport would be the path to the future for Atlanta. So he was very much in favor of significant municipal investments in what becomes the Hartsfield–Jackson international airport. And Atlanta becomes the place that everybody transfers through wherever they're going in the country. I believe it's the only airport in the U.S. where the majority of traffic there does not actually originate at that airport. It's people heading somewhere else. So Atlanta takes on this outsized role in the nation's transportation economy as a result of this. In some ways what I've at all and his successor, who the mayor who helps make it land to major league, this is kind of the next step. The economic centrality of Atlanta begins to happen under hartsfield, but then Alan, who's mayor from 62 to 70, Atlanta takes on a new role in terms of cultural significance. One of the major reasons he pushes for Atlanta to become major league is because he sees it as a source of civic unity in a place that is very spread out has a lot of divisions of cultural divisions, divisions between newcomers and long-term residents, racial divisions. He sees it as a source of civic unity. He also sees it as a source of prestige for Atlanta too. He was quite focused on the idea that Atlanta's name would appear in the standings alongside Los Angeles and Chicago and New York. And as a result of that, it would then be a peer of those cities. So he thought this was a cultural amenity a luxury befitting a city of Atlantis economic significance. Clayton true the name of the book is loser ville Clayton, thank you very, very much. Fascinating our topic and all the very best with your book. Thanks so much for having me on. It's been a pleasure. You bet..

"clayton" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"John clayton joins us here on. The sean sounds ratio playing four downs johnny. Welcome in first off. And before we hit this four downs. I gotta ask you about your team. He used to cover for for a while before you came out to seattle. And that's the pittsburgh steelers live or memorex real or fake after what you saw gets buffalo last week. Is this temporary or is this what we should expect from pittsburgh all year. I think it's i think it's real because you know it's not like they're the best team but you can see that they are good on defense and that's what won the game because their defense played so well and then They're able to do enough. On offense with ben rothlisberger the running game and everything else to be able to win but to go to buffalo like they did and get that victory was huge big win for them and i think mike tomlin. I still don't think he gets the credit. He deserves johnny. I think he's a fantastic coach and did a great job in buffalo will be better. So let's let's jump all over the place in four downs. The stakes are enormous. Time to play. Downs with sean. South jerry and professor john clayton first down all four teams in the nfc east one last week so the question is which one is the best after going. They're starting the season one and now we're talking entity east west seattle. I think it's the best. Because i think that you saw that. They've played against indianapolis the most one of the most complete games a week one. I mean they've added to their defense with the pass rush and so that's now better. They were good can coverage there faster linebacker and you can see with the offense of changes that they've made as far as the The game plan as far as what they do with shane. Waldron coming in from the rams to call the into play caller. They got a better temple. All those different things you know. We're the rams are good you can see the arizona. Looks good. I still think seattle has the edge. I'm gonna go against that. Johnny and i do and you know how i feel about russ nelson. I think the rams are better. Because the upgrade quarterback. I do again he proved that validated right off. It's one week now. The crazy thing about this division hell. The last place team could go. If before saying arizona or san francisco the worst they can go win about or three other divisions in the national football league. I'm going with the rams stafford's edition. They've been they. Get it and so to seattle to veteran quarterbacks. But i don't think we should sleep on arizona because i think column murray is going to be in the mvp talk and they already start to get some injuries in san francisco last year but if they stay healthy that's a nasty roster to an. We've got a good chance that three teams making the playoffs from the west. But they're going to beat on each other. I'm going to give the rams a slight advantage. Because i think the quarterback now is in a similar class to russ wilson which they didn't have in the past second. What are your expectations for. Aaron rodgers and week. Two after that rough start in week one fine for week two because They're playing detroit. Detroit terrible so. They should be able to get done monday night. Victory and all that stuff and then we'll see after that. But i do think there's definite problems on the packers. I think there's internal problems that you can sense. It and i think see eventually they're going to have to pay for it but again it's like First game like totally disinterested. This didn't seem like they cared. I know that didn't play. Anybody in the preseason look like they didn't play anybody in the preseason but other teams were able to play not play anybody. In starters in the preseason do better but i think right now which are looking at it in green bay. You know they'll win against detroit and then we'll see after that. I think this is the biggest guarantee and professional football this week. Aaron rodgers plan. Well i think it was trey wingo who put up the stat. I mentioned it earlier before you got on john that coming out of a loss with matt leflore and aaron rodgers or six and he's don't sixteen touchdowns against zero picks and he has never had a more embarrassing performance in my opinion disinterested played. Poor was humiliated by saints team. Last week he not only will play. Well they're going to beat the dog snot at a detroit this week at home and he'll play fantastic football this a guarantee. Take the packers in your bet and take aaron rodgers to possibly be the. Nfl's player of the week. They're gonna put it on them. That's like guarantee this week. Aaron rodgers plays well but they are not going to have the number one seed. W they're going to be battling to win the division but it's going to be close when we get to the end of this thing down down good or bad. What was the biggest. Wow factor in week one. I think the biggest factor was new orleans. Know the fact that they had Jameis winston throw five touchdown passes now again. I know we only through twenty five passes but the fact that he was able to go out there and surprise everybody. Even though the saints were down by ten starters from last year. I just signed that just incredible and then of course you looking to see they lose even more starters. Eric mccoy their starting center. He's going to be out than they have markets davenport he's going to be out. I mean i. I don't know how they did it but again. It's like jameis. Winston i thought had the biggest. Wow factor in the fact that he'll i know that you know his his he didn't throw many passes the fact that You know he has few yards as they eat did he. He had a great game against green bay. Yeah there's a couple of them one in awhile factor was how bad the packers were arizona. Going in there and beaten up on tennessee and they're building was awhile factor but the biggest one for me. Is that same thing john. The winston combined with the defense i we could talk about james winston who was fabulous protected. The football threw it away when necessary and did exactly what needed to be done. But that defense was nasty. And if i'm talking about the saints. Defense i this year. The new orleans saints are going to be a threat to get to the playoffs especially if that quarterback protects it. I'm gone with the saints and in particular the defensive side of the ball for them last week fourth down. Who do we learn more about this weekend in their gandhi texans or the browns I mean i can probably the texans. I mean we. I think we know how good the browns are. I mean they almost was able to pull off a win against the kansas city chiefs. I mean it took Patrick mahomes of being able to come back to win that football game and then of course you look over at the texans and of course i mean the texas. Done everybody by a blowing out a bad jacksonville team and all of a sudden. We're houston look like the worst team In in the national football league now the jaguars look like the worst team in the national football league and urban meyer looks terrible so i guess the big thing is just to see how houston can do. Because you know david curly came out and was able to to Go out coach. Urban meyer and coach him. Bad yeah i tell you. I learned more about the browns because i expected the texans to beat. I didn't expect them to beat them. That bad and i thought they showed some consistency. Did the texans and actually a little more explosiveness than i expected as well but jacksonville's putrid so. I expected the texans to win. I learned more about the browns even in a loss because if it's not for three or four plays. They beat kansas city. I know they didn't but it tells me the cleveland browns can not only win the division but they are dangerous threat to get deep into january and with a little luck or maybe seeing kansas city again. An differ result. This is a super bowl caliber roster. The question is. Can they close against a team like that. The cleveland browns. I learned more about even in a loss. This team's not just good. But but on the on the verge of being really really good over the next long period of time. Johnny great great stuff. I hope you have a great weekend. Congratulations to you and pat on the hall of fame induction there in seattle and couldn't be more proud of you and i look forward to talk to you next week. Okay thanks buddy. That's the great john.

"Clayton Neville joining us with the latest Clayton. Good Morning, Dave. Good morning. Yeah, The biggest impact this morning for these two schools North 40 and Smith Intermediate is that they're closed, and teachers and students can't come in. The district has closed those schools for the day again. North Forney and Smith Intermediate. They're up a falcon way, and this is believed to be unrelated to the school. But what we're learning is from the sheriff's department. There was a report last night on Falcon Way of a person laying in the road. It was believed it could have been a vehicle versus pedestrian crashed. But when authorities got there, they realize the person was a victim of a gunshot. So It's a massive investigation. They've had to close up a big perimeter. And because of that, these two schools are closed. Okay, just to clarify, then this is something that happened last night. It's not an ongoing situation. Or potential program overnight around 3 15 this morning is when the initial call came in, so this didn't have anything to do with the school day or school or kids, necessarily, according to the sheriff's office. We expect to learn more on exactly the circumstances later this morning, but we know that the schools are closed simply because the entrances are not accessible.

"Me with Mike Rosen who is the K two rep out in Lake Tahoe area. And again, I was injured at the time, so Mike's like, okay, well, you're not getting free skis through your sponsorship anymore because you're not really skiing. If you want to come help me with some events, I'll give you some free skis and boots and help you with that. So we're really turning screws for it. Exactly. Yeah, I was lodin skis out of the van like turning screws, yeah, just adjusting dims, basically for any consumer demo, is there any shop demos? I'd love that hearing that. Yeah, I just talked about it a couple days ago on another episode. People ask how do you get into this? Totally. How do you get into this industry? How do you do you take the free jobs or low paying roles? At the end of the day, it's who you know, right? Right. But we'll have to be a good human. Oh, of course. Yes. Being a good human really helps. But you don't walk into these positions. No. You don't walk into these roles. So it's fun to hear you say, you know, I wasn't getting free skier because I was a skier anymore when you're still scared. But you were angel from coming off an injury. Yeah. So Harry and you say, I went and helped was it Mike? So he said, yeah. But gone. I just like to note that for people to hear that twice. If you want in this industry, help someone else in the industry and then they'll help you. Yeah. That's how it goes. It's not as simple as submitting a resume and hopefully you get a job. It's like where'd you come from? Yeah, who'd you help? And then, like, who do you know, type of thing as well? But yeah, so obviously working with Mike is kind of the start of where I am today. But I'll kind of lead up to that a bit. But yeah, I was just turning screws for him like around Tahoe and go up to mammoth sometimes for a couple of demos. And just helping him out there at the simplest level possible. But again, I'm free labor and it's something that they can sit back and do their job in terms of talking to people the demo will have just the slave labor guy that turned the screws for a pair of skis. But yeah, so I did that and then working for AFP as well. I started out there as an intern doing free work and that I eventually worked up to me being like the tour manager for FP for a couple of years. AFP is not around anymore, too many complications with the Olympics. And FIS and everything. And it just yeah. It just ended up being not really something that was worth pursuing anymore. So that kind of ended up dissolving and now obviously there's just FIS. Which most of us have our own opinions on. Yes, exactly. We won't go there. Yeah, we'll have our own opinions on that one at all. Yeah, totally. That's not like that didn't put me out of a job or anything at a time. But you land on your feet. And then on my feet, yeah, so after college, I kind of finished up with AFP. That's when that kind of finished. I was still interning for Mike, a little bit, but at this time, Mike's now asking me, dude, what the hell are you doing? You're at a college. It's like, you need money, right? And so Mike's like, I can bring you on to the team a little bit if you want to keep helping us, but I can't pay you enough to live off. It would be nice on top of something else. So at that time, I'm still living in Tahoe and I know I've got to experience with marketing in general. And so I just decided to try to start up my own freelance marketing because there's a lot of mom and pop shops around there that could probably use some help with social media type of deal. So I did that for probably about 8 months to a year out of college and I would just go around to local shops and just see like, hey what are you guys doing for marketing? How do you bring in customers in the off season? Is there anything I can help with? So I ended up picking like 6 or 7 clients throughout my time doing that and basically everything I did there. I was just doing simple stuff like social media management, just like creating assets for them and posting photos and just giving them a presence online. But I was also running Facebook ads for a lot of them. And that gave me the opportunity to be like super self taught. And I take a lot of you to me, your online classes and really see how all this marketing is doing because it's kind of funny. I just graduated college, right? So you think I'd have all these skills, but in terms of digital marketing, you don't really learn anything in college. It's forever changing. Exactly. Change every day. Yeah, yeah. You can call it a lot of things you learn about as the marketing in terms of sending a flyers or billboards or anything of that, but it's like everything is so digitally focused now. And that's what I wanted to help people with, essentially, and that's kind of what I started teaching myself how to do. So that worked for a little while, but it wasn't something that was really picking up steam. And I'm not the greatest at sticking with something. If it's not working out right away, so I kind of lost patience with it after about 8 months or so and I started looking for, okay, maybe I should get a full time job, get some experience and maybe I can come back to this down the line. So I started just browsing jobs, and I had no idea where I wanted to go at the time. I didn't really want to go work in Reno, living in Tahoe because that's a bit of a far drive and Reno's Reno. It's definitely blowing up and I think it's a cool spot to be now, but at the time, my thoughts on that work. Amazing, I guess. And then I was like, I changed. Yeah. It's changed for sure. And then my parents ended up moving to Toronto. My parents moved up to Toronto while I was in college back to Canada where they originally from. And so I was like, well, crap, I'm not going to go live in Toronto with you guys and go work there. I'm a dual citizen so I could. But that's just so far away from where I am right there. And I was like, okay, well, that doesn't help things. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, I actually looked at jobs and collingwood and blue mountain and I was like looking at rent around there. I was like, wow, it's really cheap to live there. I could do that. But at the end of the day, I was just like, no, I am going to stay out here for now to see what else I can find. I didn't really find anything for a while until I was actually home in Toronto. I was just like looking at LinkedIn one day. I just remember it. It was like right around Christmas time. No, excuse me, it was before then it was around October time. I was home for some family reason. I was looking at LinkedIn, and all of a sudden I saw KG sports like line full tilt marketing specialist. And I clicked on it. And it was like, basically fit everything I had done. Up to my life in terms of the marketing, the events, the team management, and I just showed to my dad, he was like, holy shit, like, that's perfect for you. And so I was like, okay, like Seattle. I never really thought about that, but I guess I could go there. Don't really have anywhere else to go at this point. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do. So I went ahead and applied. And I then contacted and Mike Rosen. And I was like, hey man, I just applied to this job. I know I'm full until it's owned by K two is there anything you can do to help me out to actually get an interview so I'm not just like a piece of paper applying. And he didn't know me back right away and he was like, yep, definitely. I got you. And so he contacted Josh malche and sent him my resume and just got me kind of connected with Josh. And then something like, I think maybe four weeks later after that, I got an email from Josh. And I was like, hey, I do run for a phone call. I want to chat about the job with you. And so we talked probably the following week and we had a good long hour long conversation, just talking about the role talking about myself and it went really well. And then didn't hear anything for a little while and finally I followed up with him on email. And then he called me the next day. And he was like, can we fly her to Seattle? And I was like, yeah , you can do that. And so they flew me. He flew me out to Seattle. I met with him and Carla told Charlie cultural excuse me, who was the graphic designer here at the time and we went out to lunch and basically just did an interview and it went super well, and then at the end of that day, they offered me the job. And that was January of 2019. And so at the time, I was still in Tahoe area. So that for me the job and, of course, I'm ecstatic, said yes. I went back to Tahoe and ended up working remotely there for about a month and while I was in Tahoe as well, I traveled from there and went to OR John trade show in Denver, right? And that was actually my first week at work. So everybody just called me trial by fire, essentially. They're like, you got drinking straight from the fire hose. Go jump into a ratio into it. Yeah, throwing me right into it. Meeting all this just the trade show, the trick. Dean trade show, yeah. Meaning all of these jobs meaning all these media partners, I was like, okay, I don't really know what the hell I'm doing yet, but I'm here. I'll just say hi to people and smile and wave. Shake hands. Yeah, pretty much. But then, yes, after that, went back to Tahoe and worked remotely for a month before moving up to Seattle here in March of 2020 then. Maybe that was 2019 actually March 2019. Math is hard. Yeah. We're skiers now, scholars. Exactly. So moved up here and ended up moving into a shoebox.

"Max. You're listening to the pursuit podcast on the outer bones, network, the Audubon's collective. I don't know, Audubon's puts it out, so I gotta wrap them because they wrap me. Episode 20 5. I didn't think I'd get 25 episodes out. I don't know if you guys thought I'd get 25 episodes out. But it works. People dig it, keep leaving your reviews that really helps me. It helps jabber. It's my same shtick. I'm super pumped on this episode because I recorded it at K two headquarters. I never thought I'd go to K two headquarters. That might not be that exciting to some people. But to me, that was, I mean, that was the Mecca of me growing up was K two skis, K two skiing. Obviously line skis, east coast. Brand starting, and then, you know, K two bottom. But long story long, Connor Clayton is my guest. He's the marketing guru behind line skis full tilt. He was on track to go pro. He was essentially pro, plagued by injuries. We talk all about it. And then we dive into what makes line skis line skis and how they keep having more fun every year. And continuing to make really great skis that are fun. Again, let's keyword on fun skiing is fun. But no, they make really great skis. Let's keep really well. But they're playful and they're forgiving and, you know, skiing got way too serious for a really long and Lion skis is always been the driving force and Connor's a young gun. He welcomed me into the headquarters, gave me a little tour. There isn't an eruption because of Garth's jabber had to peak his head in. And I can't have anything nice. But whatever. Episode 25, Connor Clayton, I have to apologize because my audio is a little echoey. Good thing Connor talks more than I do. I'm still learning, especially in person interviews. But it came out rad. My good friend Charlie, charlier and fuller helped me on the audio side kind of dumbed it down a little bit for me. So it's really good. I'm excited. I'm excited about all my episodes. Connor, thank you so much. Line, full tilt. Go look out their new line. They just dropped it, it's amazing. Episode 25, the pursuit. Oh, there we go. All right, Connor, who are you? What do you do, man, you're live on the podcast. We're live. Hi, I'm Connor. I'm the marketing manager at Lion skis and folks up boots today. We're here in Seattle, Washington. Beautiful day, not raining. Well, hopefully it actually does rain because the fires are getting pretty bad. But you want me just to start at the beginning and talk about myself? Yeah, how'd you get here? How did you obviously you're here now? We don't have to go way back, but you grew up east coast. Yeah. Yeah, so I grew up on the east coast. Lived a lot of my life in Ohio before moving to Connecticut and around 5th grade or so. So that's kind of going way back. But lived in Connecticut and majority of my life probably about ten years or so. And that's kind of where I found my love for skiing growing up in Ohio and originally before that I was born in Canada. So I've got hockey in my blood, so a lot of hockey growing up. And that was kind of the thing to do when I was younger in Ohio and then moving to get that going up until it kind of nearing high school kind of junior high high school was always playing hockey on the team. And then just met a couple of buddies who would go skiing at a place called ski sundown, which I lived in simsbury. And sundown was probably about 20, 25 minutes away from my house since very. And small hill, maybe four or 500 foot vertical mainly just two chairlifts, fixed quads, that will take you up all the way to the top, fixed triples actually excuse me. It had night skiing, open till ten p.m., and so I'd skied a little bit back in Ohio. My parents taught me how to ski at perfect north slopes in Indiana. So I was good enough to go with some buddies and go see what kind of get skiing was all about. And I just learned that what they like to do is go through the train park a bunch when I was super young. And so as I kind of got a little bit more and more into skiing, I turned into that kid that everybody hates in terms of going off the sides of the rails and thinking it does a really cool jumps and really fun to do, so I totally did that in 5th and 6th grade. But that's an appropriate test. To be doing that. Yeah, I thought so. That's all looking back at that now. But yeah, as I kept on kind of skiing, I just kept on going with this group of friends and every day after school, we pretty much would just beg our parents to go drive us to ski sundown and drop us off so we could ski until like 9 or ten at night and luckily for us we had some amazing parents who were willing to do that at least two times a week. So I started doing that in between hockey practices and then I just kind of kept on enjoying skiing more and more and more. And then as I got later into junior high, I finally said to my mom dad, I was like, hey, I think I want to focus on skiing a lot more, like I'm really having a lot of fun with this. I think I'm going to stop playing hockey. And my dad being a Canadian his, I think I might have broke his heart a little bit, but I think eventually he got over it and like I said, they're super supportive. So they're willing to let me go that route and really focus on skiing a bit more. And when I say focus at that point, there's just something I really love to do. It's not like I was trying to do anything with it. Of course, I'm like 13 year old kid at that point. Everybody has the ambitions to be a pro skier. So it's like, yeah, I'm gonna totally do that, but. Yeah, but good for you for like knowing you were done with hockey. Yeah. Well, yeah, it's like, you know, if you're balancing two things in the winter when you want to focus on one and you're clearly having more fun doing one over the other than why not just keep doing it and put your full attention to it, right? So yeah, that allowed me to really kind of ramp up how much I was skiing and going into high school, started skiing the park a lot more with my friends. We'd go to ski center on the weekends because I didn't have hockey in the weekends anymore now. And we'd really start hiking rails and trying to learn some tricks watching a bunch of YouTube videos. And we're watching super old like TJ schiller video of how to do a rodeo 5 40 and trying to learn all these tricks and watching all of the pros at the time on YouTube and trying to teach myself how to do a 360 on a jump or anything. And eventually you'd learn and you'd landed the first time and it's just the most amazing feeling that would kind of keep you coming back for more and more and more. So that's just kind of what I ended up doing almost any free time I had throughout high school, I think in my freshman and sophomore year there had three good buddies and we would go to the hill, any chance we'd get and we'd always try to push ourselves to do a front two or learn a front four, try to do our first front swap. And so I really just kind of fell in love with the park scene because at ski sundown, you're either skiing park or you're skiing, you know, 500 foot vertical run that takes 30 seconds, then you're going to have to do that again. So in my eyes, that got boring pretty quick, but the park is always something that I think there's something new and shiny. There's something new you can try. There's something that you can learn. And so that would just open my eyes to this whole entire environment, and I just kind of fell in love with it. And then from there, kind of in my sophomore year of high school, I think I experienced what the green mountains of Vermont are in terms of had one good buddy to everybody's Kurt scholar, Chris frula, and they kind of introduced me to.
"clayton" Discussed on The Tournament Poker Edge Podcast
"Most tables that i play in six hundred dollars tournaments. Usually it's not profitable to open with a hand that bad under the gun so he doesn't care about position he doesn't care about things like that so our read was correct. And so that means that three betting would either have resulted in taking the down pre flop or possibly getting into a coin flip versus king. Jack which is why. I said if i three bet i'm not looking to throw my hand away. Not when this guy only has thirty three blinds to begin with so thank you back nova for posting to the tournament poker edge forums and again you guys should be joining t. p. e. so that you can participate in these kinds of conversations. There are lots of hands and lots of other topics like sweat threads and all kinds of fun stuff in the forums on tournament poker edge dot com all right real quickly. Let's do another hand. I grabbed from those forums. This kind of fun It's from bounty event but not a big one of five dollars and twenty five cent bounty event on g g poker so. I'm assuming that this is going to be like a four dollar plus one dollar bounty. But i'm not really sure in our correspondent whose name is reliable. Jake i love that name Reliable jake doesn't tell us but the blinds are two hundred and four hundred with a sixty anti per player and we're about halfway through the tournament just moved to a new table no reads on our opponents now. I am shocked guys. And how often you all seem to post hands on the forums or send me hands on twitter at clayton comic where you have no reads on your opponents because you just got moved this table i think some of you out. There are fibbing about how long you been at your table. But the fact is you're not really paying that much attention to your table and you don't want to admit that to me. The reason could be that you're playing poker while doing something else or probably you're playing poker while playing poker on eight ten twelve other tables and that's fine. All of us do that online. Okay i get it. You don't have reads because you're not really paying attention. You're doing your autopilot. Gto bought just trying to treat everybody as equals Thing and that is fine for online poker. You know that when you do that you're sacrificing a certain amount of expected value. That could be gained by paying more attention to your table. But in your opinion play more tables with a slightly lower expected value per table is still more profitable than just playing one or two tables and concentrating. Like crazy on them now. I can't tell you whether or not you're right about that. But i know that's why you do it and i'm okay with that. I actually do that sometimes myself. So stop telling me you just got moved to a new table. And that's why you don't have any reads. We all know the truth all right so anyway. We're at this brand new table quotation marks with no reads. It's an eight handed table. One of the players at our table has eleven big blinds and everybody else has at least thirty. Big blinds One full hero in second position or as you may call it under the gun plus one and he is holding the ace of spades six of diamonds and he's got about seventeen thousand in ships so his 'em about sixteen. He's got about forty two big blinds. He's in second position with ace. Six off suit okay. this is a fold like we don't want to be playing this hand. Maybe if you're sure you're at a table of absolute guppies and you're not worried about anybody three batting you. And you're not worried about getting out played or flopping a pair of aces and being out of position against a caller or two but we already said we have no reads. So when i have no reads or unless i have a really strong read that i am by far the best player my table. There's no way you're going to catch me in second position within a six off suit. So this is a very clear pre flop fold and i would recommend reliable. Jake that you click around a little bit on the tournament poker edge site and check out some of our pre flop hand charts and maybe watch some videos about pre flop strategies that will explain to you in more detail about why it's such a mistake to have a such a wide opening range from early position anyway This is what happens. He men raises so he makes it eight hundred. And the hijack calls with forty six thousand behind and everybody else folds so. It's actually a pretty decent result considering how we stepped out onto that tight rope with the a six off so we're going to be out of position with a six verses one late position caller. That's it about twenty seven hundred in the pot. And the flop comes king of spades queen of spades tray of clubs so king queen tray with two spades hero with the ace of spades and six of diamonds Do we want to see that here or not. Yeah like i don't like having this hand but we already talked about that since we do have. This hand is actually a pretty decent flop. Considering we did not make a pair we have back door. Not flush draw and nut straight draw potential so it feels like that. We should be see betting now again. We have no reason our opponent. I have no idea how this guy plays. And what's likely to happen and an auto position guessing but there are a lot of good turn cards far range and so let's put in a little bit. I would bet something like one k. You don't need over bet here. If the guy doesn't have a queen or king he's not gonna be able to call any bet really so let's see how hero played it okay. He puts in eleven twenty and villain calls. I'm okay with that sizing and just hoping that we can keep improving our hands so that we can help. Hopefully run this bluff all the way to the end so Now there's about forty nine hundred in the pot and the turn is the tray of spades so our board is now king queen trae tray with a two spades so the paired board is kind of a mixed result. Actually because it's harder for us to convince our opponent that anything has changed when the bottom card pairs on the turn unless we can actually convince him that we have the flush and we know he does not have the nut flush because we have the ace of spades our hand but he called on the flop was something and it's very likely to be a king or queen so i think this is a mixed blessing if you will as happy as i am to have picked up the nut flush draw. I'm also that disappointed that it is with a car that paired the board. So would i bet again. I don't know it's probably half the time you do have to time. You don't i guess i probably wouldn't i mean Having gotten called on the flop it's not like he under bet the flop to where the guy could call with any two cards You really are up against a king or queen so much of the time when that eleven twenty gets called on the flop and so for that reason. I think it's hard to get a bluff through here on the turn. Maybe if you have a specific read about your opponent like this guy he likes to call the flop and see what happens on. Turn some players do call quite a bit on the flop like just to see if they have a floating opportunity or something like that so if we had any type of read on this opponent i might be more inclined to bet. But i'm ready to shut this one down. Despite having picked up the not flush draw. So let's see what hero does Yeah he's keeping it going guys he puts in thirty one twenty into the forty nine hundred pot and then villain calls again now. We've left ourselves with. Approximately a pod is bet left. Yeah there's about eleven k in the middle and hero has about that much behind so come on spayed. I guess The river comes the deuce of clubs. So and yeah. Our correspondent writes that. This is the bricky est break of all time. I could not agree more. Nobody ever wants to see the clubs but there it is and so should we shove basically like our options are check. Give up or shove and try to see this thing through. I mean there are a lot of good reasons why we should give up. Like i wanted to go up on the turn. Just because in a five dollar tournament with bounties i generally don't like to try to bluff people that i'm pretty sure have pretty strong pairs in their hands And yeah just you know the way. This board has shaken out. It's like if we bat again. We're absolutely representing that. Flush and flushes are pretty hard to come by so we might just want to give up on this one. I mean yeah. I like i like the The aggressiveness if we do shove here. I mean the. There's a good argument to be made for why you should do that. I mean number one. We have like pretty close to the bottom of our range of me. I don't know how often we're gonna have worse than as high With this pot size a heads up against this opponent so that is certainly a case for Shelving and and hoping that he can't find a the call also of course having the blocker to the not flush and knowing that our opponent does not have the nut flashing if he does have the not flashy probably doesn't have a flush at all because he called from the hijack pre flop and there. Aren't that many hands. That don't have either. The ace of spades that king of spades or the queen of spades in them. That should be making that call in the first place. So i get it. If you do shove here. I get it. But on balance. I think that the strategy for winning a five dollar bounty event on gee-gee poker is not to triple-barrel bluff people. That definitely have at least one pair a huge amount of the time. Yes so one thing. I forgot to mention. I hope this doesn't change anybody's take on the hand but villain has covered by about three to one and chips so he's got a lot more chips than we do so he's not worried about losing his bounty to us. In fact we have to worry about losing hours to him if we go all in and he calls We are definitely losing the tournament and our bounty as well. So i mean some people go too far with this. I don't think you should change every single thing about your tournament game just because you're in a straight ahead bounty tournament but i do think that when decisions are close. You might wanna lean towards not bluffing. Just because especially players with a lot of chips can afford to look you up and they are incentivized to do so by whatever portion of your buying is in the bounty prize pool now. Obviously that effect is greatly magnified when we're in a pk. Oh but even in a standard bounty tournament it is a consideration on the less so hero shelves and gets looked up by king jack off suit and so this is how reliable jake busted out of that particular five dollar and twenty five cent bounty event on g g poker He made a note that the villain did have the jack of spades so perhaps that may have made it a little bit easier for him to call on every street just you know having his own sort of back door flush draw remember the king and queen of spades. Were both out there. So this was in effect. The second nut flush draw so it would have been great to you. Know hit a spade on the river. Because it's very likely could have gotten the full double because this guy was not going anywhere with the jackass spades. One card in a deck can beat him and we have it but as it turns out the deuce of clubs never helped anybody on the river and ended up being the downfall of reliable. Jake let me know your thoughts on this hand as well as the one from mac. Novas six hundred dollars. Venetian don't wanna make a point of sharing more hands from the dtp forums Going forward just because. I think it's a great place to talk strategy with players at various levels but with everyone having the right attitude of not trying to make you feel stupid or that your questions are dumb or that your new or whatever else you might encounter on other websites. The forums on t. p. e. r. one of my favorite sections of our website. Because everyone there is so supportive and understanding that. We're just not all at the same place at the same time in our poker development so let me know what you guys think. You can tweet me at clayton comic.

"A in it in a way that many people never think about before. And that is He's going to measure my life by the people who i could help become better people and he. He's given me an opportunity to do that. And i believe that everybody has been given an opportunity by god to help each other and I just tried to think about how god thinks and how he made us better every day. And every once in a while i come upon somebody like fossa god is able to post to form in a way that that is a two way street because everything i've learned he learns and It's a wonderful experience. So all i can say is i. I'm grateful to god for rigidity professor clay. i think you so much for impacting my life. A boy from oklahoma Never met in person. I didn't really know harvard business. School even existed. Frankly until somebody recommended it to me. And i just i cannot tell you that the impact you've made on so many people just like me small business owners all over the world and the fact that you guys would take time out of your schedule to be here with us if oh so you guys have so much going on. I encourage every listener out there. If you're listening today pick up a copy of the prosperity paradox today by a cop it by one more copy for someone you care about. This book is a game changer. Think you so much for being on today show. Here's you're welcome. Thanks for the opportunity. There's just something about clay christianson that blows my mind. I mean this is a guy who is the most iconic most well known the most respected professor at the world's number one business school and yet he just thanked me. He just thanked us for the opportunity. That is the kind of person that i would love to become. Someday he is truly a business hero for me. And i don't want to take any of the thunder away or the focus away from his newest book. The prosperity paradox. But i do wanna share a notable quotable from one of his previous books called. How will you measure your life. How will you measure your life. And in that book he writes in your life. There are going to be constant demands for your time and attention. How are you going to decide which of those demands gets resources aka time. The trap many people fall into is to allocate their time to whoever screams the loudest and their talent to whatever offers dim the fastest reward. That's a dangerous way to build a strategy. So thrive nation is an action item. Today i would ask you. I would ask you to do two action items for me to take action steps for me today. One by a copy of the prosperity paradox by clayton christianson. This guy is one hundred percent sold out to helping people all over the world. His book is powerful. And i promise you that you are going to have countless knowledge bombs and epiphanies as you turn the pages of that book also. I would encourage you to ask yourself today. How are you allocating your time. How are you utilizing your time. If time is truly our most important resource i mean. We can always make more money but we can't make more time so if time is truly our most precious in finite resource. I think the most profound question we all ask ourselves. Today's how are we spending our our time. And just because somebody since you a facebook message or sensual linked in invite or youtube paying of some kind or a tweet doesn't mean you have to spend your day responding to those things. Listen this digital age. It's very easy to get our per parodies. All all turned around and misaligned. It's easy to focus on the most important thing last and then spinner day focused on the least important things because we're getting them urgently. We're getting updates push to our phone and maybe we need to turn those push notifications off. Maybe we need to focus on things that matter.

"A company called digital tutors and that company became a massive online education company that he later sold impeach told me he said klay clark. The one book that you need to read mr clayton. Clark is a book written by clayton. Christianson called the innovators dilemma. And i thought to myself. What is that in. Who is that and living in tulsa oklahoma. I wasn't super familiar with mr christianson turns out he was on the cover of forbes in two thousand eleven and he's sort of a big deal so ladies and gentlemen. It is my pleasure to introduce to you. Mr clayton christianson and his good friend. If osa ocho professor clayton any phosa how are you just great. Great thanks thanks. Clay doing well. Now if osa my understanding is that you met mr christianson while actually attending one of his classes on the campus of harvard university. Tell us how you guys. I met and how that course changed your life yes Thanks thanks so. I met Professor christian in we call them clay at at age. Pf pilots taking a second year course called building and sustaining a successful. Enterprise is the most popular course at the business school and oversubscribed fortunate to get into his section. 'cause they're about seven or eight sections of that course taught by different professes And as as We started the course and going through the semester I just realized how that was easily. The most impactful course. I took while wallo that. Hp s. The course starts by having students read through different management theories and they used that theories as a lens to assess in particular Case right a management decision now that the ceo or cfo or a manager has in an organization and theory essentially is a tool that allows you See the issues More salient and so in that course professed christians and let us know that He doesn't want to hear our opinions But the series always have an opinion And i started to think about that. I realized that you're in the course have significant impact on how economy can grow and develop And so it was just a very fascinating experience taking the course learning about management but also thinking outside of class how that could have an impact on whole economies and how they can grow so you had this class with mister professor christianson and you guys now are writing a book. How did this book come about. And how did your relationship come about So so after the semester There's a an opportunity for students to do a fellowship With with one of professor christie's organizations asked at the business school and it's it's It's really a great opportunity So i applied for that fellowship. And i started working with him and i remember the first day i walked into his office. I walked in there nervous with my folder. Things i wanted to talk about and the first thing he said was you know to You know. I've been thinking a lot about this and i think we should write a book about prosperity and innovation and And how different kinds of innovations can really ignite prosperity. Happy days of my life. Of and so i i I mean you jump at that opportunity you don't you don't shy away from it So one thing. Yeah what are the things that i was learning at the same time i was teaching them always learning something to it. Didn't realize that if we're looking into the future there's a problem in god doesn't provide students or faculty any information about the future and when we teach the students about it'd be managers we teach them how to use theory that Data where if you were. We're taking them in the wrong direction and we realized little by little bit rather than teaching about data. We need to teach our students about what is in theory and harrison built. Because in. maybe you could talk about the impact that theories about looking into the future if he could anyway was a great opportunity for me every day. Listen to my students in the closer. It was one of the smartest i ever had. Yeah thanks clay But yeah it's it's true right when you think about it. We don't have data about the future. I mean every piece of data we have is something that's fabricated by an individual And he talks about the past and so the way that we can plan for the future and predict the future is by using good theories. And so you know. Professor christopher has essentially designed his career around coming up and developing good theories that can help us predict the future a lot better And so that's one of the most fascinating things about that course about the research we do and about the book That we've written because the theories statement of causality And all of us right regardless of what profession where ian Where we are in life. We use theories every single day right. Because we believe if i do x. Y. is going to happen or why is likely to happen. And so that's really how that courses designed and you can see how powerful it could be when you arm yourself with eerie. That could help you minimize the mistakes you make as you go through life brother a the funny story about causality. I was reading the innovators dilemma. The legendary book that you wrote in that book you wrote in a startup company where there are no processes in place to get things done then. Everything that is done must be done by individual people resources in this circumstance it would be risky to draft someone with no experience to do the job because in the absence of processes that guide people experienced people need to lead put an established companies. Where much of the guidance to employees provided by processes and is less dependent upon managers with detailed hands on experience. Then it makes sense to hire or promote someone.

"I would love it if all tournaments were winner-take-all even even with eight thousand players. Because you can still make a deal if you get to the final table and you guys say all right. There's eighty million dollars in prize pool. You guys want to do an equity chop. You could still do that right. Maybe the tv producers wouldn't like that but you could do it off the record and still play for the trophy or whatever. But i know that's never going to happen because players have gotten used to the gradual increase from ten percent of the field which used to be standard. Now it's closer to fifteen percent For many tournaments and even on some online events that i've played in is greater than than fifteen percent. Now remember if you go from ten percent to fifteen percent that's not a five percent increase. That's a fifty percent increase. That's a lot more people getting paid and what it results in is a lot of tiny little prizes. For barely eking into the money and then players for years didn't like top-heavy payout structures. Okay so if you guys don't want to do a winner take all fine at least make first-place way more valuable than all the other places like in the old days. The early days there world poker tour. No one remembers this but every tournament basically had fifty percent of the prize pool for first place nowadays. You're hard pressed to find one with twenty percent for first place but what it did is it forced people to play for i. You have to incentivize the players playing for i do just said if you incentivize players trying to ladder up because the difference is only a few hundred dollars anyway or a few thousand dollars depending on the buy in then do going to get tanking. But if everybody's really trying to win the tournament and win first place then. You're going to see people take more chances. Get after it more because all the money is up there. You gotta get all the chips.

"One and only clayton fletcher clayton. Welcome to the chasing poker greatest. Podcast sir how are you. Thank you so much brad. A huge fan. I listened to as many episodes that i can. You crank them out like gangbusters. So i can't quite keep up with you but It's an honor to join the ranks of Your esteemed list of guests so thanks so much for having me. Yeah it's my pleasure. And i will give all the credit to my guests. I lean on them. I just ask the questions. They provide most of the greatness bombs on this show so they make my life alati a lot easier. I can't imagine doing like a monologue three days a week. I think that would be. That's like my worst nightmare. Tell me so. I know that your comedian and a poker player. So i guess. Tell me about how that intersection kind of happened. You know the the story of you getting involved with playing cards and also the comedy. Sure as a boy we used to play. I have two brothers and my mother was a serious poker player herself even had a a fairly high stakes home game at our house. My mother would invite local gamblers. I grew up in baltimore maryland and my mother used to invite people over. And you know nine times out of ten. Take their money. It was seven card. Stud back that. I'm in my forties so my My poker experienced predates the no limit holdem boom that basically took place around the turn of the millennium So yeah i grew up on seven card stud and a little bit of five card draw but not too much of that. Mostly they played stud and My mother would allow my brothers and me to gamble are allowance with her around the kitchen table. My father would play sometimes too but he was a jazz musician and his focus was a lot more on After dinner he just wanted to go downstairs to the music room and practice his base. But yeah so my brothers. And i would stay and play poker with my mom. And she said we didn't have to play for real money but if we gamble are allowance. We didn't get another allowance until the following week. So it's kind of a great way actually a great way to teach children about money and so if you spend your money or lose your money or gamble away your money More doesn't magically fall from the trees so at the same time so my mother was teaching me about poker and also other games. We played a lot of backgammon chess. this french card game called meal born. We used to play quite a bit and usually not for money..

"It was a very fast structure to say the least and with being eight handed and super turbo. The chips were flying. Leave you me. So i have two hands. I wanted to share and the first one actually comes from the two hundred four hundred four hundred level so again you start with thirty thousand in chips. I was running like god for the first hour so and it quickly built my thirty thousand all the way up to almost one hundred ninety seven thousand within the first few levels Yeah flopped set with pocket aces and got paid on three streets. I- flopped a flushing got paid on three streets. So one thing about these small stakes tournaments in live poker. You can to get paid on your good hands way more often than you would in a higher stakes by in or perhaps an online event and the reason why is just the common mistake that's made by the least experienced players is always going to be calling too much so they limp in early. Then you make a big raise with premium hand or two big cards and they'll just call that raise from out of position and then check to you then. If you hit a piece of flop you can just bet it very heavy and expect to get called at least two if not three times with just one pair and have it be good now obviously tournament with tougher. Competition you can expect to get check raised ally. You can expect to get outplayed sometimes and in these tournaments they kind of playing. I guess what you could call slot machine style right so they want to just see what happens. So that is the general player profile now within that will be sprinkled a few players that are trying to win something called the tournament leaderboard which i guess is some kind of free role if you play tournaments there every day and you have x. number of final tables you might be at the top of the leaderboard and win some kind of cash prize for that or trophy and bragging rights throughout the state of maryland. About how you beat all the bad players tournament stuff like that. I'm not really sure what that's all about. But i knew. There is some sort of incentive for people to play lots and lots of tournaments. And if i were raking thirty percent out of every by in i would also try to incentivize people playing a lot of these. So business is booming at maryland live casino. They got two hundred forty entries in the prize. Pool was over twenty thousand dollars with a first place prize of fifty two hundred bucks which is not bad for a one hundred thirty dollar investment. So here's the first hand that i wanted to talk about. It's two hundred four hundred with a four hundred big blind anti so. There is one thousand in the middle. Our table is sitting seven handed and the action folds to hero clayton with his ninety seven thousand stack and go ahead and raise up to one thousand With the ace of clubs king of clubs from the cutoff position so folded to me in the cutoff with king suited. I go ahead and raise. I could go a little bigger here. A lot of the players at my table have around the starting stack. It's still pretty early in the tournament. I've just been running so so well. I'm just hitting everything in and winning. Lots of chips on every pot. It seems and now here. I am with yet another very big hand the old as king clubs so i could raise bigger and expect to get called i just. I don't know. I rather just raise small and be able to stand little pressure if somebody three beds. Whatever this table is really really lose I don't expect to ever steal the blinds with this bet. Small blind in particular is a very flashy guy. He's wearing these like spectacular dazzling. Glittery sunglasses at the table. And he's got more than one gold chain around his neck and he seems to be speaking about seventy five percent louder than is necessary to be heard all of this being an indication that he's the type of fellow who doesn't mind a little bit of attention so that's the player in the small blind and he has been playing approximately one hundred percent of the hands. You heard that right. I don't actually think i've seen this player fold yet So i raise it to one thousand and the big blind Sorry the small blind player. We just talked about does call as does the big blind. So i'm going up against the blinds imposition with ace of clubs king of clubs. Now these guys both have about fifty thousand in their stack the big blind is a more straightforward kind of conservative but not skilful player He's just tight enough to probably cash in this tournament. Oh good bit of time with all of the loose action around him He doesn't really have to do too much except for just wait till he has something and then get involved But yeah when he calls here that could mean a lot of things because he's getting up. Pretty darn good price to do. So so the three of us. See the flop. And it comes jack of spades tray of clubs deuce of clubs so we now have to over cards. And the nut flush draw. With of course the nebulous possibilities of a straight broadway or wheel both certainly in play at this point so it's a great flop for us and both of our opponents. Check now with three thousand in the pot. Should we bet or should we check behind well against tougher opponents. I don't mind checking some of the time here I i think that it's it's certainly possible that you can deceive more talented thinking opponents into believing that you can't possibly have the flush because of course you would have sent me bluffed on the flop. I'm i'm talking about. If the flush comes later it's harder for good opponents to put you on that flush when you check behind on the flop with two of the flush cards out there That is certainly one reason to check back against tougher competition. Also just the fear of getting check raised knowing that you're going to have to continue to give action with such a big draw And maybe just wanting to preserve your stacks things like that certainly okay to check it back when you're up against that type of opponent but against these opponents i think checking is no good. I mean even if we happen to be behind at the moment we have so much equity versus their ranges and it becomes very important for us to try to build a pot for if we happen to hit an ace or a king or club on the turn which would almost certainly be good and most importantly be able to get paid so we want to build a pot now so that we can make bigger beds later if and when we get there there is very little chance that are flop bet will ever take it down on this board so they get that thought out of your head for sure so again with three thousand in the in the middle and about fifty thousand effective i went ahead and fired.
