Ep. 59 – Brian Koppelman Ruined My Life

 

Brian-Koppelman

In 1998 I became addicted to poker. I played EVERY SINGLE DAY for 365 days straight. Each day, I would leave work and I would run down to the Mayfair Club and play hands against some of the most successful poker players to date.

All of this was due to a movie about poker called Rounders, written by Brian Koppelman. I thought back to the movie and to my days at the Mayfair Club and I knew I had to have Brian on my podcast.

Brian has done some amazing things in his life and it was great to finally talk to him. During the talk I felt like we had known each other for years.

It’s a great interview with tons of interesting stories and helpful tips. Enjoy!
