On the pod this week is Kar Yung Tom, a serious Magic and Chess player who has recently recommitted to winning poker by joining a Coaching For Profits program. We explore what led Kar to a life completely surrounded by competitive gaming, and get opinions from him on the similarities and differences between these pursuits that so many players share. Kar discusses why so much of the poker community falls into small collectives – sometimes quite antipathetic to each other. We finish with the analysis of a fairly simple and common spot through the lens of the Coaching for Profits discipline and its metrics.
Kar plays for the Grey Hat/Adam Jones “Academy” – just like Francois, the GTO+ content creator from Ep. 36.
