November 18, 2022

This week Jim Reid and the panel welcome Sky Matsuhashi back to the show! The popular podcaster, YouTuber and coach shares some thoughts on what goes on behind the scenes of his content creation and why he feels that active study is so important. He also offers some factors to consider when facing a 3-bet and some details about his new video course that you can find at his Poker Forge training site – see the link below. It’s always a fun chat when Sky comes around!

Plus of course, we give away a free prize at the end for folks in the YouTube chat. Join us on YouTube next Monday at 7:30 ET for free to ask our guests questions in real-time, and you can win too!
