Lara Eisenberg recently won her first WSOP bracelet in the Ladies No-limit Hold’em Championship event and talks to the panel about the experience, as well as her time skydiving with a world-record-setting crew and her work as a radiologist! She also discusses how she learned the game of poker and how studying it within a group context has made her a better player.
