RecPoker Podcast | Ep 182 – Carlos Welch on Prius Living

By Steve Fredlund
June 12, 2020

Carlos Welch has one of the most interesting stories in poker. A player, writer, and coach who decided that to best chase his dreams required living out of his van. Then, the need for overnight A/C moved him to buying a Prius. We talk strategy, game selection, and then dig into a wonderful hand where we face a difficult river shove. Connect with Carlos on Twitter.
