Mysterious poker training philanthropist? Imperturbable doctor who RNGs your diagnosis? Legendary Zynga shark? For our first podcast of the new year, I’m pleased to welcome Thomas Pinnock, the enigma who has created one of the most comprehensive poker learning communities on the web. Zenith Poker features every aspect of serious study, including a learning path, an advanced background text, long-form video lectures, challenging tests of concepts including follow-up teaching videos, a staff of coaches, a busy online chat room, a full sim library, and even the development of its own solver. Most of this is offered at no charge.
Sounds pretty great. The challenge, however, is always the same: how do you put all this into action? Thomas gives us the bad news in his best bedside manner: it’s work… but he (and his community) is here to help.
Some of Thomas’ strategy writing, pre-Zenith Poker, hidden on Upswing. (Speaking of free stuff, the burgeoning Upswing article trove is excellent, but hey, who reads? More crazy talk.)
Regarding the OOP live deep-stack game in LV that Dean mentions: contact me or look for announcements soon.
