By Jim Reid
June 17, 2022

This week Jim Reid and the panel welcome back Brad Wilson from the popular podcast Chasing Poker Greatness! Brad gets right into the topics of poker coaching, wild games, cheaters, the value of community, how to learn effectively, the importance of language, why accountability matters – and a whole lot more! This episode was so chock full of fun that we’re going to have to invite Brad back again soon to keep the discussion going. We also got some great feedback from the YouTube crowd that was watching along and sending in questions in real time. Join us yourself every Monday at 7:30 ET for your own chance to hang out with great poker guests and win a prize for free!

Brad is active on Twitter as @CPGPodcast and you should check out his podcast “Chasing Poker Greatness”

We also go over this week’s home game results and discuss these topics:
