Does Vanessa Selbst really require an introduction? Not only is she a graduate of Yale Law School and a member of Team PokerStars with two WSOP bracelets and a two-for-two record in the NAPT Mohegan Sun, but since recording this interview, she won the $5000 preliminary event at the Bellagio Festa al Lago. Vanessa is coaching chip leader Jesse Sylvia in preparation for the WSOP Main Event, but you can learn from her for a fraction of the price by watching her videos at Deuces Cracked. You can find the Tournamentality podcast that Nate and I mention during the show at that same link.
The article Nate mentions at the beginning of the strategy segment is Winning in a Tight Game, published by Card Player.
This week’s music comes from Czech indie rock group Please the Trees. A New Heart is the song from the outro. You can download their new album A Forest Affair and listen to select tracks at that website.
