In this latest installment of our ongoing Ask the Poker Experts series, poker pros Brian Hastings, Adam Levy, Jonathan Little, and James Obst share what they do post-WSOP. How they handle this unique time on the poker calendar can prove to be instructive for the rest of us.
Ahead of the biggest tournament of his life, Platinum Pass winner Nikhil Segel hired poker pro Jonathan Little for help in improving his game. What resulted from this is the over 6-hour-long “25K Platinum Coaching Sessions” series.

Pretty much every single poker fan has watched the World Series of Poker on TV. When you’ve been doing so for over a third of your life, but haven’t yet experienced it in person, you get serious FOMO.

I hope you enjoy.
Together with Bruce Briggs, my co-host over at the Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast, I recently interviewed Jonathan Little, a 2-time winner at the World Poker Tour and author of a number great poker books as well as hundreds of great poker strategy articles and videos. Jonathan spoke with us about a number of interesting topics, offering his views on sunglasses and headphones while at the poker table, telling us why poker coaching for $300 per hour could very easily be justified, and regaling us with interesting stories about he got his start playing poker professionally. Have a listen to Episode 223 of the Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast and enjoy the summarized transcript.
