Hey guys,

Made this video several months ago, so I apologize if a few aspects are a bit dated.

As it relates to coaching, I have gotten several requests from potential students asking if I am offering discounts post Black Friday, and the answer is YES! Check out my coaching page for more info: http://www.deucescracked.com/coaches/Gman

I am finalizing some things for my next miniseries currently, which will be mostly theoretical in nature as I haven't done much of that since Dog Is Heads Up years ago. These type of videos take a ton more work than duel videos, so hopefully everyone gets something out of them!

As always fire away with any questions Smile

Long time no see Gman,

Nice to see the face behind the voice, and I appreciated the video.
The way you exlained the downswing in a specific game and breaked it down in BB/hour was something I hadnt thought about before, good advice!

What do you think about playing other games (6max, plo) only when your on a downswing at hucash?
I mean never mix the games, you play either hu or 6max(or what game you prefer)

Im really looking forward to your upcoming HU-series!

I really do not expect you to answer this but given you mentioned his name......

Your thoughts on Girah/jungle/DiH scandal?

I assume you have no comment but thought I would ask.

Also - you still in USA? Thoughts on post Black Friday future of US poker legislation?

2) How does one get to touch a body like that Wink ?

Almost at end of vid, 2 more serious Q's:

1) Which month was this made?

2) The difference between Big Bets and Big Blinds? So is a ptbb a Big Bet?

I think it really depends on the individual. For example if you are equally skilled at NL and PLO and also are able to mentally separate the 2 so that you still feel confident and do not have any negative feelings in the other game, then I'd say go for it!

I have advised some students to take long breaks when downswinging, whereas others I can tell they have their emotions in check enough that I felt a break was unnecessary.

Yup, theory series has just been finalized and will likely be mixed in with the content in the upcoming season, starting with the first video in approximately 2 weeks.

Ya my ESPN interviews never aired unfortunately. Instead they chose an exclusive with the German basketball player who started barking at me after bluffing me Undecided

And I meant "Put a face to the name"-I fail sorry.

Your thoughts on Girah/jungle/DiH scandal?

I think it is yet another situation that reflects poorly on the poker industry and that makes me sad. All 3 are people I will certainly avoid if I ever see them in a live setting in the future, and all 3 seem to have very poor moral compasses.

Haseeb and I didn't speak for years soon after the DIHU series was complete, for no particular reason. When we were working together, there really wasn't anything about him that struck me as shady tbh. This was 3 years ago though. So although we used to talk a ton of poker, I really don't know anything about the person he has become over the past few years.

Also - you still in USA? Thoughts on post Black Friday future of US poker legislation?

Yes I still live in Scottsdale (suburb of Phoenix). For now I am happy here-close to family, a lot of my closest friends are here, great weather, beautiful girls, etc. I also live a mile away from the biggest poker casino in the state, so that is a major plus as well.

I do think poker will be regulated in the future, but I don't think it is going to be all that similar to the Party Poker days in terms of how soft the games are. My guess is that we are a ways away from that however, and I think most Americans would be making a mistake if they were relying on poker becoming legalized for either financial or emotional reasons and waited it out as such. A better idea would be to move, play live, go into another industry, or some combination.

I tried to not talk about it too much because I figured nobody would care, but I am completely obsessed with bodybuilding and have been for several years now. The natural high I get from weightlifting and cardio is probably better than almost any other feeling (minus a couple Smile )

I spend the first few hours of every day in the gym working as hard as humanly possible. Some people ask how I always have the energy or motivation, and I tell them its so much easier when you absolutely love being in the gym.

Nutrition is everything when it comes to physique-eating the right food at the right time. I eat 6-8 meals a day depending on whether I am cutting or bullking. To oversimplify a bit: the vast majority of my food comes from fibrous veggies and lean proteins (fish, chicken, egg whites), with the remainer coming from a low to moderate amount of low GI carbs (rolled oats, sweet potato, brown rice) and good fats (avocado, olive oil, nuts). Like other areas of fitness, mastering what to eat and devoting the time (lots of cooking and cleaning) and finding the mental strength to accomplishing my nutritional goals has become a huge passion of mine. I no longer look to food for pleasure-instead, I see it purely for functional reasons. I have spend 100s of hours learning everything there is to know about the training, nutritional, and supplementation aspects of bodybuilding.

One other thing-bodybuilding has changed my life for the better in so many ways. Every day I leave the gym and have a major sense of accomplishment. Even if I get crushed at poker that day or something else bad happens, winning at the gym makes me feel like I have had a successful day. Bodybuilding has also increased my self confidence a ton which of course helps with women. Ok I'll quit now, even though I could go on and on forever...
