She’s earned numerous interviews, TV appearances, and poker sponsorships after having shown consistently strong results at the tables.

Jessica was kind enough to take the time to answer our questions in this exclusive interview.
While playing at EPT Prague, Vanessa Selbst was kind enough to sit with us for a few minutes and grant us an exclusive interview. Poker fans who have followed Vanessa’s career already know that she’s one of the most accomplished pros who has ever played the game.

We hope you enjoy this up-close look at the lifestyle of one of the top poker players in the world.

One of the things I love being able to do with this poker blog is turn the mic around on those who produce poker content. Though he’s not “officially” a member of the poker media, “Chicago” Joey Ingram has built a tremendous following over the years amongst hard core poker fans who love listening to and watching his interviews and conversations with the world’s top online poker pros and other behind-the-scenes people in the poker community.
His face and voice are familiar to practically everyone, but it’s ultra rare for Joey to “give up the host’s seat” and allow someone else to ask the questions. So, big shout out and thank-you to Joey for graciously allowing me to “conversate” with him. I hope everyone out there enjoys what he has to say.
Jake Cody was kind enough to grant us an interview. Beyond tracing his path from anonymity to poker success, Cody went into detail about balancing life away from the felt along with poker pursuits.

Check out the interview to learn more about what makes Cody tick, to see what else he hopes to achieve in his poker career, and to perhaps learn some important lessons about living a poker lifestyle.
