Thanks guys. Enjoyed it very much.
Love your work!! Keep crushing!
That was a fun ride. And we had the thrill of a perfectly timed ambulance siren to add tension and drama to the hand.
Very interesting and enjoyable discussion. Fascinating to hear how you have worked your way up, and continue to grow your game. The hand was pretty exciting there at the end!
We might need a few of the creative thinkers in the group to suggest the creation of a moving fund, to get Fausto to South Beach, in exchange for coaching and use of a room in his pad when the fund creators decide that visiting south Florida for that wonderful food, sunshine, and beaches sounds like a great idea – when wouldn’t it? Ok, good talk :-)
Great episode. Looking forward to new ones each week.
