  1. About lessons running over … the thing I find teaching English as a foreign language is that the students are fine with finishing on time if they know there is another lesson about to start after them. If necessary one can give that impression when it isn’t true ….

    But generally, like the poker coaches, I don’t mind running over a bit.

  2. Great podcast and learning more about your background Christian. It was awesome
    getting to know all 3 of you this past week at the training. Thanks for the shout out and best of luck at the tables!
