Pokercast interview – 9/15/09

Did a fun interview last night with Mike Johnson and Adam Schwartz at Pokercast. My second time of probably many. As one of the original disciples of the Temple of 2+2, it is dreamlike to be a guest on that show. (Special thanks and howdy to Steven (*TT*), the maker of things that happen.)

Here’s a link to the interview:

I am the second guest. My segment starts at 1:14:04 and ends at 2:03:30. We talk aboutThe Eightfold Path to Poker Enlightenment

and miscellaneous topics. I think my favorite line of the whole thing is just a few seconds before the end, when Mike plugs my book. He says:

“The book is Elements of Poker and if you haven’t read that, what have you been doing?”

    Have been waiting for this! I was upset when you got bumped by Mr. Binion, but can’t wait to download this on iTunes later!

    Liked the interview.

    * You touched on tilt == sub-optimal play and breathing, which were two of the big things I got from your book.

    * I would like to meet the guy who played drunk for twenty hours and only lost half his bankroll…something else to aspire to.

    * All the live short-stackers I’ve known went broke unless they were using it as a learning tool and eventually developed additional strategies. Don’t know about online; it might be viable there.

    * ‘Target’ vs ‘goal’ was a nicely-put distinction.

    “…something else to aspire to.”

    You can do it! Just sit up, breathe, and quaff mindfully.
