By Jim Reid
September 03, 2022

This week Jim Reid and the panel interview the one and only Norman Chad about a host of subjects, from working with that jerk Lon to selecting his next glass of red wine – and beyond! Jim overcomes his usual technical issues just in time to ask Norman about getting his start in poker, why he loves mixed games so much, and how recreational players like us can improve. They also discuss what it’s like being a poker insider and Norman shares some personal stories about dealing with depression and the value of community. You won’t want to miss this one!
