I’ve finally finished the audiobook! Sweet potatoes. After many days of grinding through waning throats and barking dogs, I’ve finally managed to put the whole thing together and submitted it to ACX for processing. If all goes well, it should go up by the beginning of March on Amazon, iTunes, and Audible.
It’s completely awesome, and I’m really proud of it, so hopefully you guys pick it up once it goes live. Just to celebrate finally finishing all of the recording, editing, and mastering, I’ve created a little preview for you guys of the actual audiobook. Check it out!
It turned out really well, so look forward to when it comes out! The audio quality turned out fantastic. I learned a lot about audio production, editing, mastering, and how to narrate by doing this book.
It’s kinda crazy now that I think about it. I’ve pretty much done 100% of all of the creation of this book on my own—from writing the book, to designing the cover, formatting and typesetting, converting it into an e-book (which required some self-taught HTML and ePub standards), designing and publishing a print version, and now with creating the audiobook, setting up a homebrewed studio, recording, editing, mastering, and preparing for distribution all completely on my own. With some advice and support from friends, of course. But I did all of it with my own two hands.
Looking back and all that, I have to say. I’m kinda proud of myself. That’s pretty fucking cool.

Hey gang, Today (after a brief hiatus due to illness), I bring a new video where I explore the innumeracy bias. The central question I explore is this: are our minds naturally built to think in terms of probabilities and ratios? (They’re not, it turns out.) And if not, then what, as poker players, can […]Read more »
The poker community, momentarily breaking character, has been reflective lately. It all started with Joe Hachem lamenting the decline of poker at the hands of new-school players. Phil Galfond then weighed in with his thoughts on how to bridge the gap between new and old-school. Finally, Daniel Negreanu went on 2p2 to chide new-school players […]Read more »
Today, I’ve got a special treat: I recorded a preview of the audiobook! Hear a great section from the book, “Tilt: the Customer is Always Right,” which teaches how to play optimally against a tilting player. Of course, you also get to enjoy my chocolatey voice in its full aural deliciousness. It’s okay, it’s not […]Read more »
I don’t tell people these days that I used to be a professional poker player. It seems like a weighty and cumbersome admission, one that always leads to the same tired conversation. The last time I played a hand of poker was well over a year ago. That life feels like an episode long behind […]Read more »
