Next up in our ongoing Get to Know the Poker Media series is Jason Glatzer. I usually send out the interview questionnaires via email and do the back and forth online, so it was thus quite special to be able to chat with Jason in person and hear his answers in real time.

Before and After, with Jaime Staples: How Life Has Changed Since His Physical Transformation

At the 2018 EPT Barcelona, I caught up with the “new and improved” PokerStars ambassador Jaime Staples. After having transformed his physical appearance winning a bet with Bill Perkins, I dove deep with Jaime to see how that affected his day-to-day life, his poker play, and overall outlook.

We also discussed how his personal transformation inspired the idea for him to give away a Platinum Pass. I hope you enjoy watching this video interview, with transcript also included.
