This week Jim Reid and the panel interview Rob Gardner, a pro player and content creator who shared a table with Jim in the WSOP main event this year. Rob opens up about his experiences playing as a tournament pro over the last several years, what got him into poker in the first place, and how important it is to know if you are playing for fun or money. He also shares how he improves and studies the game, the importance of bankroll management and game selection as a pro, how to exploit less savvy players with your sizing techniques, and a lot more!
NOTE: In the interview, Rob refers to a 2-year threshold for profitable play – this refers to folks who are actively working hard to become winning players and is not a standard that recreational players who play for fun should hold themselves to. Enjoy!
