  1. Very enjoyable guys, especially liked the discussion of the big draw hand.
    For strategy segments I prefer a mix of general strategy and specific hands. I think you guys deliver that though through the hand discussions.
    I am definitely interested in hearing you interview dealers, operators, waitresses, etc. rather than just players.

  2. Variety and thoughtful commentary is the strength of the show, both in terms of guests and content.

    My favourite episodes were 8-Ben Wilinofsky, 7- Matt Parvis, 2-Tommy Angelo, 6-Gareth Chantler.

    Vanessa Selbst is a huge name but I actually got very little from it, perhaps because she already has had so much exposure already.

    I enjoyed the specific hand discussions more than general concept strategy pieces.

    Because of your interests and backgrounds, I think the general discussions and anecdotes are worth listening to and I wouldn’t mind more of that. Nate’s coffee arbitrage still makes me chuckle.

  3. In the big draw hand discussed … if hero shoves you seem to think the bare NFD will fold, but if the other villain calls a better made hand then the NFD should be calling, right? Obv. from the turn action the other villain will likely fold, at which point NFD should fold too (but I wouldn’t be shocked to see a random 1/2 call with it still).
