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. He also told us about some of the philanthropic work he engaged in with Right to Play International, a very worthy charitable cause. 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.

We asked her about her family history, getting into the poker industry, women in poker, and much more. You won’t want to miss her answers!
