"And that sometimes there's just like a lot of noise in intermediate players, thought processes that need to be eliminated. And it's kind of like that winnowing down in fact. To wrap up the show, I have to ask about this hand where you misread your fours. No, you misread your fours, and they were actually I thought I had fours, but it's actually threes. Coincidentally, the hand I really had is the one that has not been claimed on the grid yet. So you joined some great players in the grid who have also misread their hand, like Nick schulman, and Talia poker. Yeah, that Nick schulman episode is one of my favorites. That one was great. I know, and it's so eerie that that became like the hand of yeah, exactly Jack four. It's gotta be like the most watch time of all time by now, right? It's gotta be. 'cause I can't imagine a meat always. There's that miss Finland hand with the ACE2 of our 6 or 7 years ago. Maybe that one was a contender as well, but this Jack four has got to be one of the most watched poker hands of all time. Just because it's such a hot topic to wrap up. Can you tell me as a data scientist? What are your pet peeves? When it comes to people analyzing, cheating scandals in either chess or poker. Okay, yeah, this is a great one. So what I would say is in data, the question is always compared to what. I mean, that's always really important, but especially when you're comparing unlikely scenarios. So one thing I see with the way people are analyzing this hand with gear and Robbie is analyzing some part of it and saying that would be really unlikely if you weren't cheating. For my perspective, it's also really unlikely if you were cheating. For example, returning the money after the hand, really, really weird, something you never really do in poker, but I don't, I don't think cheating or not cheating makes a ton of sense. Like it's a weird action either way. At least from where I am sitting, it's not obvious which way that pushes it. You always have to look at both sides. You can't just look at one side and say, this doesn't make sense therefore it must be the other side. You have to make the comparison. Although I will say that with weirdnesses, it could be, in some cases, that, for instance, in the hand, with your Michigan bar back room that people, especially people who've been cheated in the past, are just wanting to extricate themselves from any situation that seems weird. And that's not really a justification for false accusations or accusations with not enough evidence, but I do think it could be a potential explanation for it. If enough weird things are going on, it means that where there's smoke, there's some kind of fire and even if you're wrong about the type of fire, it's like you just want to get the hell out of there. And I think that's actually smart for a lot of people.

"Both great players, a lot of kind of witty banter and sort of a nice back and forth dynamic. There was a deep gravity to the events. They really cared and respected the history of the sport and commentated some big stuff the U.S. open and other sort of just big prestigious pool tournaments. They were just tremendous, Grady had a great voice. He was just, I mean, he had a little cameo in color of money in the color of money rather where he put a $100 bill on the table. I think he was in Santa at pony, he had a mustache. I mean, he was a legend. So that was like where it first started. And then in boxing, I loved I love old coast cell stuff. He was great. And I have a lot of favorites now. I really enjoy your commentary. I love svidler that he was stopped swinging by. I mean, he's tremendous. I really enjoy chess broadcasts in general. They're kind of similar to poker in a way. The long day is games. It's a different sort of thing than a major sport. Although, because you can't talk in chess, I feel like they're even more well, obviously they're more cerebral. There's not as much story going on. It's more abstract the game. It seems nice that in poker, you also just can talk about a conversation that people are having or some kind of subplot. But thank you very much. The authenticity seems to be a trademark quality of all the most popular commentators, right? I think so. Some people are incredibly polished at what they do and you don't necessarily maybe the authenticity doesn't totally translate, but they're just kind of getting it done. I think about this more and maybe combat sports or football or something like that. I don't know if Al Michaels is coming across. Incredibly authentic, but he's just really polished, you know what I mean? But it's stuff like chassis and poker and yeah, definitely. So you want to feel that the person has conviction and conviction is often earned by kind of one sort of knowledge or just road travel, but also just genuinely kind of laying it out there is a good thing to a point, but it's very different for everybody, I guess. It's hard to say. But yes, I authenticity is good. Yeah, you could be very polished like somebody like Maurice Ashley, and that is not exactly or you could be very authentic, but being kind of neither is maybe not very good. Yeah, definitely. Definitely. Well sat. This don't be neither. But yeah, so what's the best way to keep posted with you, Nick? In what way? Well, do you have your Twitter, right? That's about it, isn't it? Nick schulman at Twitter? Yep, that's me. I'll be doing some commentary and playing some poker. And Jack for offsuit, is that a hand that we're going to see from you much in the future? Yeah, no, we might see it getting there a little bit, but it's not one of my favorites. Now, but time and a place. It might, you know, if I'm playing it in some elevated event, or just any no limit event in general, I will definitely

"And yeah, you do see some competitive personality types, but then there are just these geniuses at times where sometimes I can't quite figure it out. It might be more of a kind of, I don't know. There's some escapism going on, which is some really bright minds who just are content to think about poker all the time and study poker all the time and play all of the time. That's another trait of great players. They're in there. They're pretty deep in that life. And if they're not right at this moment, they have been many, many times, really, really immersed in just playing poker in the same goes for every single sport across the board. And every single game, the great players have only played a ton, but are very competitive. So you've both called and played a lot of super high roller tournaments. Is there anything you notice the best players in the world doing right doing really well that goes unnoticed by people trying to improve? Not some amazing bluff on the river or great call down, but just something that goes less celebrated. I think they find ways to retain levels of activity sometimes just everybody goes car dead and everybody spurts at the table. There are certain players it just feels like they're always poking around a little bit. And I think they're choosing very theoretically sound spots to do so. And it's not that easy to kind of be aligned with sort of making sure that you're entering a responsible amount of pots. I think that you do see really great players do that a lot. And then they shake off mistakes and bad beats pretty well. I mean, you can really feel when certain players just can not shake it off. And you don't really feel that from top players too often unless they're really in a cold spell and even then I've seen players really handle it pretty gracefully.

"Many different kind of, it's just you just start to read each other physically. There can be so many different things people do. Some people freeze when they're bluffing. But freezing, it can be very subtle. It could be chewing gum, then you're not chewing it anymore, you know, just putting a drink down, but kind of putting it down perfectly and then just not moving. But then you got guys that are doing that, not bluffing, and they understand that they're kind of feigning that sort of concern that one might have when they're bluffing, but when you play with the same people over and over, you just gotta, you know, you gotta study them. Now, you've been through a lot of ups and downs in your own poker career. Can you think of a moment where you realize that you were doing something wrong and you really had to just completely reconfigure it? Because I assume that to survive and thrive in the game for so long, there were times where you had to look in the mirror and realize something was totally off. Yeah. I mean, I've had a lot of those moments. I think for me, the biggest turning point in my game was when I stopped taking myself too seriously and just just started to take a harder look at things and kind of, I guess, try to be more humble. I mean, but it's sort of like, how can we be sure we're doing that? I don't remember exactly, you know, it's been a long journey and process, but I know I had moments of reflection and I put a lot of work into trying to be objective, trying to be less defensive, kind of, I used to be very defensive for reviewing hands and they would all lead to arguments. I never played a hand wrong. I always had a million reasons why it could have been right.

"And I enjoy the movie. Yeah. Some of our past conversations have inspired some of the ideas for this podcast. Like the time you told me about visualizing every cell in the poker grade, like you visualize all 60 four squares of the chessboard. Can you elaborate on that? Sure. I mean, trying to visualize one's entire range, both the entire just range of cards that can exist and also just your opponent specific range or ranges in general. It's an essential part of playing no limit at this point, I think. Or at the very least an idea that should be considered. So what does it look like when you say visualize is there an actual image in your head? I would say that it's more combinations and kind of relevant sort of data that I can extract from the range than the range itself. I don't really have colors going off or kind of a chart floating in the air, but sometimes a little bit, but again, I think it's more just kind of extracting what's doing what and kind of grouping it. So it's more just like chunks of data that are so well rehearsed that you recall them very quickly, but not necessarily in some visual form. Like you wouldn't just. I like to think that the sort of calculations worth going after. I'm kind of getting on as quickly as I can in a lot of no limit spots. Got it. Yeah, and that's so important now that they use shot clocks in so many of these tournaments, right? Yes, absolutely. Part of training regimen or when you're thinking about spa if you're playing in tournaments with shot clocks, you need to get right after it. And the ability to calculate quickly is important, yeah. Four and a half simpler strategies that you can kind of go upon in a variety of spots as nice as well with shot clocks. So I know you love both the theory of poker and the art of reading people. How some of your struggles have been with integrating them together in integrating theory in a way that didn't damage or interfere with your instincts. I was talking about the golf swing with somebody and it was really sharp guy, great golfer. And there's so many technical aspects of golf, but he was like, you know, don't forget to just hit the ball. And I was like, yeah, thanks. I like that. I know what he meant.

"I mean, but I don't know. So in this game, were you playing really, really long sessions? This one was played at around 7 a.m. and the game had started at 7 p.m.. And I've never been too much of a marathon guy, I get tired, and I do get foggy ish. So this was a 12 hour session, but I was normally embed by one or two. So it was kind of like, I mean, don't get me wrong. I played a lot of 36 hour sessions in New York when the time was right. And this one was nothing too crazy, but I was definitely tired. But I was all right. I don't think it was that. I was, I was focused. We were playing very high stakes, no limit. It wasn't like I was delirious or anything. I wasn't drinking. I mean, I was in there sipping coffee thinking I had 9 7 just happened, Jack for a lot for piles. And how do you recover from losing a 150 K that just goes like that? Just stick with you, or you just play through it. I just play through it, honestly, it doesn't, it didn't stick with me too much. There were a lot of great games at the time in New York for starters. So I was just constantly in action. And I mean, I don't know. I sort of, I guess, just kind of have become a little bit numb to it. That one did stick with me a bit, but it happens. So if you did have 9 7 suited at your happy with the way you play the hand, you'd play it similarly today or something a little different you think. I think so definitely player opponent wise, I think it was a, it was a good choice. When you sort of know that your opponent probably has a good hand and is probably calling.

"Furnace of 5, bringing a backdoor flush draw. Isaac checks. We bet 35,000. Isaac calls and at this point, it's really looking like Isaac has an over pair, some sort of a pocket pair. Even ace king is possible ace queen because I was very splashy at the time. I had a nice image with Isaac and a lot of these guys. And just in general, there were a lot of big pots at the time with not a tremendous amount of hand strength. And I just long story short, I really felt that Isaac was calling the river. The river was fairly irrelevant, not a spade. I think it was a Jack or a queen. I guess that's not totally irrelevant. You can make a full house now to beat us. But he can have so much stuff. He would inflate the pod preflop with stuff, all pocket pairs, ace highs. He checks. Probably a queen now. Yes, correct. It was definitely a queen. So he checked again, and then what did you decide about the sizing here? I went big. I decided he was calling. I went roughly 100,000. I might have gone a little bit less, but this hand was like a long time ago. But I just remember the gist. I went roughly a hundred. Isaac called, I flipped over my hand, and I had Jack four offsuit. I had had 9 7 suited the hand before. I mean. And yes, the river did not connect with the Jack and anyway. But I just remembered that it was a brick and I thought I had trips. Here we go. And man. I had Jack four. I had no pair of no draw. I was just barreling away. I guess the player I knew was calling. Wow, and what did he have? He had tens. And what was his reaction when you flipped over the Jack four offsuit? Did you indicate that you made a mistake or did you just keep it to yourself? No, I had a meltdown. I started pacing around the room. He was laughing. I mean, I was kind of laughing at a point. It was kind of disconcerting for a brief moment. You know, 'cause I really thought I had 9 7. I was playing this whole hand under the presumption that I had one hand to just flip up two entirely different cards. It was pretty shocking. I think I kept playing for another hour or two, but I definitely took a little break, walked it off. Yeah. I don't know if it was the previous hand or two hands before, but basically I ordered a drink, and I was just thinking about the hand and off we went. Crazy. How would you play the hand if you had Jack for a suit? It's a good question.

"Part of the deal with most of these arrangements is that they can fast, and then they're guaranteed anonymity, we'll get back to that in a second. And after a period of time, they're allowed to play again under a new account. Why then was The Wall Street Journal publishing an article about Hans niemann? Well, that must have been because lawyers determined that it was acceptable for test dot com to come forward with these concerns. I'm just speculating here, but I'm guessing it's because Hans niemann in that interview that he did in the sinquefield cup contradicted some of the truth of the findings and so maybe that was enough for them to bring this out to the public. Which makes sense because people were really, really mad at test dot com at the time. So I can understand why if they were given legal approval, they would, they would go forward with it. This whole fiasco and I mean, really it is a fiasco, is very hard because it's nice to see more consequences for cheating in chess, but it also feels being unfair that one player and a teenage player that is getting so much of the flag. Of course, yes, bringing it on himself by smack talking the world champion and lying in an interview. I get it. I get it, but it's still hard to see. And we can only hope that the greater transparency will lead to more game integrity in the future. I mean, I hope a lot of kids will see these stories and just realize that it's not worth it for your reputation. To cheat even once, whether it's online or over the board, the pandemic really raised the stakes on online chess and it's a raising that former divide that online chest isn't that important. It's a new game now. Chess with consequences. Well, now on to poker and the illustrious incident, well, maybe not so much. That inspired this rerelease. Of Jack wore off episode as well, which summer in alcohol, the new 7 deuce offsuit, I love it actually. I hate 70s officer. I feel like I have Jack four really does make a lot more sense for that game. I'm glad to see that, but less glad to see what happened in his hand, now infamous hand between a new player, Robbie Jade Liu, and the very well-known cash game player Garrett G man Edelstein at the hustler live stream on Friday, September 30th.

"But I gotta switch it on. I told you a few months ago that there are some very exciting reasons 5 and especially busy lately, well, one such reason is that I'm coming out with chess queens, it's a totally updated and revised version of my previous book on women in chaz, right now, orders are my love language. Hello, grid listeners. Today we're going to revisit one of my favorite episodes with Nick schulman on Jack for offsuit from an underground New York City high stakes poker game. But first, I wanted to talk a little bit about the recent cheating scandals. That have really shaken up our world. These poker and chess subcultures, which so many, so many of my listeners have built lives and friendships and passion around. Our built on rule sets, cheating is as world champion Magnus Carlsen put it, existential threats to our games and to our livelihoods. And they are really fun fodder for the mainstream media turns out. Especially when the sagas include speculation over anal beads and vibrating Versace leggings. As I record this, The Wall Street Journal Jess published an exclusive on the scale of Hans Neiman's cheating on chess dot com, about a hundred games between 2017 and 2022 allegedly, including some money games, which contradicted with Han's statements when interviewed at the sing field cop. Where he had admitted to cheating in online games during two different periods at the ages of 12 and 16, but insisted those gains were not for money. So all that said, the article did not really move the needle on one of the most burning questions for chess insiders. Namely, is there any evidence that Hans niemann cheated over the board? Beyond the circumstance. I know some of you listeners, especially poker players, are lacking at my naivete right now. Jen, have you ever heard of these statistics? Yes, yes. And I hear you. But over the board, truly is a very, very different beast in chess than online. Well, I should correct that. It used to be a very different beast. Now, the prestige and potential for career growth and online chess tournaments since 2020 has really skyrocketed and it's kind of a reckoning for what that means about cheating online versus cheating live. One thing's for sure though, cheating over the board is much more difficult to pull off. Unlike poker, there's no talking allowed in most chess tournaments. Most tournaments don't have any spectators now, and they have it for a few

"It before and how it led up to this moment. Sure. When I was hired to help launch the party in New Jersey website, that was so many years ago a heavy 5 or 6 years ago. They sent me to Venice to do to do some promotion stuff there for a dollar PT. And they ended up saying while I was there, hey, do you want to do some commentary? And I was like, nope. And they said, well, we sponsored you to be here. So enjoy that commentary. And I was like, all right, I'm fine. I was way more shy. I'm back then. And I ended up doing commentary and it was the scariest thing I ever did. And I enjoyed it though. When I left the booth, I felt exhilarated from having done something I was so afraid of. And also it was just a jumping off point where I'm like, all right, well, that wasn't a huge disaster so that might mean that I have a little bit a little bit of room to grow, but it wasn't horrible experience. So let me build off that. And I ended up doing a bunch of brugada openers, WPT's, and I did a heartland poker tour. And then poker go ahead contacted me a couple of summers ago and said, hey, do you want to do some bracelet events? And that was when it was on the Twitch platform with tuckman. And we didn't talk man have like basically a sibling like relationship. Where when we got in the booth, it was very chill where we both kind of like made fun of each other and I got the chat all riled up on Twitch to make fun of tuckman. It wasn't super heavy on analysis because I'm just not one of the best poker players in the world. I can play poker, but I'm not you're not going to listen to my commentary and say, wow, I just, that was so insightful. My mind is blown. So I was always kind of the casual, let's make this fun kind of commentator. And it went over well. And I ended up getting the next year to do the preliminary days of the main event. So they asked me to do day one a and I couldn't even believe it. I read the email 6 times. I was like, you really want me to do this? Sure. Did they send us to the wrong person? Is this supposed to be going to Maria or Carol? What's going on here? So I was kind of in a little bit of disbelief at the time, but also I also wanted to say no, the first time I just live on ESPN was the first thing I thought I was how many things could go wrong and I'm not that outgoing as a person and it felt scary, but I sucked it up and said, yeah, I thought I'd be stupid to turn down such a cool opportunity. So I did it and it went well and people were super nice to me and they just said, oh, it was really funny and you like made jokes about the players and you're making fun of Norman Chad and it's great and all this and I felt amazing about it. Then fast forward to the main event the next year, the preliminary days went fine. Everything was good. The actual main event final table was the first time that I had gotten just like a lot like so many people watch it. That I was getting a lot of criticism from our own poker community where there were like what the heck this girl doesn't even play GTO. She's not talking about these deep concepts. And I think ESPN wanted it to be light and casual and have it be ribbon Norman Chad. We're making a joke about a player. We're telling us about telling people about the player's background, their hometowns, blah, blah, blah. I think that appeals more to the casual viewer. But I think within our poker community, there were people who made it known, and they're like, we want the best poker player with the GTO mindset and all this and so that to me was so weird. I'd never faced that much. Just attention at once. It's amazing how many haters can come out when you are in a moment of joy that you're able to live and experience that you, it sometimes you don't even dream to have, I don't think you've ever dreamt that this was going to be an experience that's happening. You're thrilled that it's happening. You're so happy for yourself. You're not going out there showing off. You're just very content and happy that you're having this opportunity and then the haters come out and try to put you down and in all honesty, it's not a good feeling. It's just not a good feeling. You feel like all of a sudden did I do something wrong here that these haters are coming out and some of these people in all honesty are, I don't want to say necessarily the well respected ones, but they're not people who are looked down upon in the industry and they're calling you out and you're like, what did I ever do to you? Sorry, does it sound like I've had this from personal experience? Because I was going to say I'm like, wow. That's really good. You read my mind. I didn't have quite the rosy image. I knew that that would that's my hesitation, the first year I was invited was because of that, where I said, wow, I don't know if I'm at this point in my career where I should be on ESPN live right now. Right. So that was a hesitation there as I'm not somebody who thinks, man, I'm crushing it and everyone should listen to what I say and I'm going to just be the best at this with no training, no broadcasting background. And let's go put me in there. I wasn't like that. I knew that this would open me up to some criticism. But I guess I just got lucky in the beginning where people, I don't know if those more of the underdog or they're just like, oh yeah, like this girl's gonna suck. And then they hear it and like, oh, she's kind of funny, cool. I like her. And like a couple years later, it's a different story where they're putting me on the main event, final table, and when that happens, they're I'm not my favorite commentator. I'm playing on my mom's favorite competition. I'm just not. There's Nick schulman. I know that there's a lot of controversy concerning him last year, but yeah, I didn't feel like I deserved the spot, but I also felt like I'm not turning down this job offer. I'm sorry, that's not a thing that you should do. I'm not in the position to I'm not a producer for TV. I don't know what will be the best received person for this job. Maybe they want more women in poker, maybe this is a play to try to make this more palatable to a female logic. I don't know what the reasons are, but I also know that I'm going to do the best job I can do. And I'm going to suck it up and I'm going to read comments about myself that I don't want to hear. And I'm just going to try to get better at it. And that's the attitude I took, and it was a rough road zone. I'm like, I don't want to open Twitter with like a hundred comments. Right. I'm not an attention seeker like that. There are certain things where I'm okay with being in the public eye. I like interviewing people. I like having a podcast where I focus on the other person and learn about them. This was very, this is very overwhelming to just be like, okay, I'm getting there's no one who doesn't have an opinion on me, good or bad. Right. Right. And that was really tough. But I think that now that looking back, I'm super happy I did it. I'm proud of myself. And I've taken steps the last year or two, I was like, man, I didn't feel ready for it. I studied more poker this year than I have in my life combined before that. And just feel like if I got an opportunity again, I'm not going to feel I'm not going to feel as overwhelmed under prepared. I think the thing that. I've come away with it and when I've been put in those situations is everyone's got an opinion. That's fine. Let them all have their opinions. If you've done the best job that you can and you feel like you've given everything you had, and they want you there. I'm not stopping by. Like you said, I'm not going to turn this job down because of you, right? And so I'm going to do the best job I can. I'm going to take all the compliments, but I'm also going to take the criticisms that are constructive, like you could have done this better, whatever it might be. Don't use your hands so much Bernard. You know, whatever it might be. So that, oh, that's a good point. I didn't think of it that way. Or when you talk about this situation, whatever it might be, okay, that's good. But don't tell me I don't deserve this. Don't tell me that someone else should be there in front of instead of my place. That's not your decision. I'm glad you have that opinion, but I'm not going.

And among the choices for personality of the year were Allen Kessler, Daniel and granule, Phil hellmuth, Jamie kerstetter, Nick schulman, Mike Madison, and Doug Polk. Wow. Who are you going?

So it could be anybody because you could have entered any name you want. So, but it's pretty solid, shortlist, I think, from this year. So obviously Negro, as you mentioned, it is always a personality and he hasn't slowed down this year. Alan Kessler I think has been a little bit more active this year, which is hard to kind of funny to say because it's very active. He really inserted himself. And then if you go back to the Allen Kessler Mike Madison, who was going to have the first Twitter meltdown. So I'm right there, you already have people talking about. Exactly. Benning on whether you're going to have a Twitter meltdown, so that kind of makes you a personality of the year. And then you get Doug Polk and I don't know if this is the best year, but obviously. He was leading that campaign to get the Las Vegas mayor ousted. Remember that. Oh, that's right. That's right. Last year, two years ago, everything runs together. But he's been knee deep in these investigations of wrongdoing and live streaming and stuff as well too. So you can make a case that he's a fresh face there. But the Texas Booker room too, right? Wasn't he part of the party? So he's everywhere. But I'm really going to have a hard time accepting anybody but Phil helped me with this year. And I know we're feeding the beast here and I've been quite critical that I just don't like the shit anymore. I never did, really, but I definitely don't know. And really cross some lines with the burning down the Rio and the stuff this year. But you can't deny that he has been the biggest personality, I think this year. I guess. But he also got more talked about this year than Phil homo. I guess I agree with that. I guess the other thing is like, what's your definition of personality?.

"We're playing deuce to 7. So again, people who have heard the show, you know what it do to 7 more of my favorite game, but this is triple draw. Ace is high, two, three, four, 5, 7 is the best hand because you can not make a straight two, three, four, 5, 6 is a straight. And I explain all this because it's very important for this description of the hand I'm talking about. So again, the wheel is two, three, four, 5, 7. That's why it's deuce to 7. Bryce yaki gets dealt the second hand in deuce to 7. Two, three, four, 6, 7, not 5, 7, 6, 7. Only one hand can beat it. Yeah. Yeah, lose it. It's almost 2500 hands. He's got the second best one. And what happens here is Josh has a pretty big lead. He draws to 6, 5, three. He has 5 cards. He ends up tossing two and has 6 5 three. At this moment in time, he's basically drawing dead because if he fills in, he can't beat 6 7 6 four three deuce. Because he's got a 6 and a 5. And as Nick schulman, who is the announcer at the time, ironically, you mentioned it. Astutely says there is one way he could get a two and four for a straight and then toss the 6th and get a 7. It has to be that perfect people. He had to get a four and a deuce to get the straight, toss the 6 and fill in the 7 because had he got in the 7, three deuce, he would have lost with a 7 6 5 three deuce. He the first draw he gets a deuce, the second draw he gets a four. So now he fills in the straight..

"That I was never able to win a, but I was there for a bunch. I don't know. I think I have two wpt final tables. I think so, yeah. But yeah, but yeah, that was awesome. I mean, that was so much fun. You know, the Vince van patten and Mike Sexton days. They just such a cool team in blue poker up. Yeah, I mean, the World Series I saw the world poker tour that you said it was must see TV, first of all, travel channel, Wednesday, 9, 9 to 11. I remember, again, for all of you youngsters, you don't understand. But a video VHS, putting it in, has setting the timer. I wrote it on there. Do not touch, do not erase. And I would just re-record all the shows and then I'd watch them over and over and over again. I would tell people, I've told people a lot of times on my show that I would how I learned poker was I would watch it. I tape it. I hit the mute and then I cover up the cards in the corner with a post about. And then I'd watch the hand play out and then I tried to guess, oh, if I was in his shoes, I think he has this, or I'd cover up one of the hands. So I know what one of the hands is. And then I play it out. And I think I've always been some people when they see what the hands are. They're like, how could you not shove all in? He was like, that's not as easy as that. You don't even have the nuts. Don't tell me how you shove all in. So for better or worse, because I cover up the cards and all that. I've always been pretty good at being able to put myself in their shoes and being like, how would you act? Like, what would you react like? Would you just call with you? You know, that kind of thing. And I remember watching there was a three or four year span where where ESPN was trying out different commentators for some of the coverage. And that was my biggest pet peeves was the commentator, the player analyst that would come in and act as if like they were literally in godmother because they could see both hands. And it's like, oh, I would do this, and this, and this, and it's like, dude, you can't see both hands. It's not that easy. Exactly. And so that's what and then, you know, off subject, then along came Nick schulman who really changed the day. That we get to listen to poker today because he really does a good job of putting his thoughts into words into why he would do certain things in certain spots. And so it would have been really cool back in the day to hear Nick, you know, talk about the hands. But Mike Sexton did a great job too. Yeah, I mean, I think that Mike did it in a way that because so many people were neophytes back then. I mean, they didn't know what was going on. Like all they saw was they saw an ace and they were happy, right? Oh yeah, let's go, you know, and then Mike would say like, you have to be aggressive. So people saw an ace and they said, oh, good card. Need to be aggressive all in. And you're like, what are you doing? That doesn't work. You know, that kind of thing. So when Black Friday hit, how much did it affect you and your world? You kind of didn't start. You didn't travel as much..

Until i was eleven and there was three courts in our neighborhood in i in an intersection in a triangle and once the they'd be accomplished on the corner and they carry kinda come and dead defense a little bit and that does courts. I went down there when i was eleven. And i've found a old wooden racquet in the back of my drive in my run. I might one. Is these doing back. It's broken strings. It's but i found it. I started hitting against the wall. And i went down to the courts and and it was an older gentleman in his seventies. George schumer. mac has coached everybody in town for fifty years.

"The tournament was a sort of hybrid players playing on devices. But also for the most part live across the table from each other so the more satellite-aided in people talk about i these presents. His intimidating stare is ability to make salaries were there moments where you could see even though he was somewhat mediated him still able to do that arguably you know most of the players that phil had to play against that tournament. We're very tough players. There were softer sections of the bracket. There were tougher. Parts of the bracket phil didn't really have any easy matches. So i think most of his opponents probably like you know experienced players who played for high stakes and high pressure situations. I i would not imagine that. Somebody like manic. Loser felt intimidated by phil could feel his aura or anything like that. But speaking of wildcards Phil was definitely doing a lot of like out of the book things that seem to have thrown people off in a worked out for him. Yes it certainly did dr. We were talking about this. During the event itself obviously took place over several days but it really feels like poker king and do pt found something that really works here. I wrote a couple of articles about the event. And i pointed to the quality of the commentary you had. Jamie angeli ingram bringing color. But you also alleviate booths gay and look cheery and nick schulman to poke doing really good analysis. What's today for you there. I think the format was a winner. It was it was quick enough that That that it was engaging but it was not it wasn't just like one of the old fashioned token crop shoots. I also think they just general coverage was really good top commentators. You didn't manage to get into the box so that kind of illustrate stash only hire the best. And no need yeah. E even if the guy's olivia came straight from their matching and jumped into comedy. I thought that sorta added also good social media presence you had. You had a sense that they were all having good fun down there as well which is something that is it is important. I think to convey that to the outside world. Poker should look like fun and this look like a really fun event and yeah i think i think it was positive. I think it is a winning. Four-match wasn't his phone behind. The scenes look comes not for me as a lot of work. Thomas wait wait. Aren't you like some burnt tan. Exactly exactly yeah. A lot of people really got baked out there like joey and olivia but the feedback that i got from people that participated work the event played in it was it was overwhelmingly positive..

"I mean just kind of hilarious. I it's like i. I run like royal rumble pools and other stuff where you need to use a randomized. And that's what i use. So it's it's a great tool. the website. looks like it was built in nineteen eighty three. I think matthew broderick have used it to play war games. I'm not sure i'm surprised. You didn't have a better method of randomize this field but we now have the sixteen first round matchups From this field the fields pretty ridiculous. Means you'll ivy's in it. Tom dwan is in nick. Schulman's in it it's jam packed but there's one match up from the first round. That is just awesome. I'm super excited to see it. I know they're gonna feature it on. Its tom dwan versus doug pub. Yeah is the this is the match that everyone is looking forward to Myself included. You know i. I think that these guys just have a you know a a ton of popularity a ton of experience within the poco world you know i i know. Poke unquote retired But he he's back in the mix here and he's going against one of the go-to the industry In all night poker. So that's one that that i'm looking forward to. It also has a good chance to kind of carry over because patrik antonius looks like he could get the win and then have to play the winner of this match and patrik antonius is online poker. Goes well so you know we could get a couple of really good matches out of the gate from from that side of the bracket and that's really what i'm looking forward to. Yes let's run through the the mattress that arrays understanding of. Who's in this. It's not just poker players. As i mentioned off the top job ever lawn is playing lindsay in the first round lindsay You might remember from our high stakes poker coverage sort of an emerging star really cool cedar in this field. Sam greenwood's plan kevin rabbit chow Stefan barracuda of unknown alana's stephan one to he's playing timothy adam so a couple of really phenomenal online players. There atoms obviously had some real. Success live but apple displays of really cut their teeth. Online lands luminaires playing oliver game. The first round. I think that's super bowl. Nick schulman increase truck victim janowski as limitless play. Nick that's one that is probably not going to get the attention to deserves but it could be a really good match. Keep in mind. This isn't nbc. Heads up format where everybody gets twenty biggs and we go. This is the best of three with pretty good structure. So it's gonna take some some skill as opposed to just flipping for for these winds. Never this was invitation only So keep that in mind as you hear about some of the other people don't stevenson it He's gonna play dance. Smith in the opening round to non poker players. I guess is the best way to describe it argon a battle in another match. Half an eastward streamer will work on that sort of stuff room. Wang's her name She's going to be playing Chessmaster botas combined the two point one million people following the montjuich probably gonna have a massive viewership if they both host the the stream. Breen new is into poker. I think that's super good. It's unfortunate that the random draw got to non poker players playing against each other but also from a marketing perspective.
