Andrew Brokos is a great friend of the RecPoker podcast and he joins us again to talk about the release of his new book, Play Optimal Poker 2 with a focus on constructing ranges. In addition to discussing the book, we talk a bit about the impact of the pandemic on Andrew’s personal approach to poker as well as poker overall.
