Episode 221: Benny Glaser

Benny Glaser is a mixed games specialist from the United Kingdom. With three WSOP bracelets to his name, he is finally getting some recognition as a world-class mixed games expert. We talk to him about why he chose to focus on games that, especially in the UK, are played far less frequently than no-limit hold ’em, why these games haven’t taken off in popularity, how he stays on top of so many different games, and the threat that artificial intelligence poses to non-hold ’em games. Plus, a big announcement from Nate, and Andrew discusses a big call down he made … Read more…

WSOP Anxiety Dream
