I Asked Berkey But He Couldn't Solve For Why

by Brad Wilson

For a highly intelligent man Berkey has made one extremely poor decision.

Don’t get me wrong – his one bad choice is a million times better than my bad choices but that let’s not focus on that.

Let’s focus on the fact that you shouldn’t even know who Matt Berkey is.

He spent the majority of his poker career painstakingly attempting to reach the Mount Everest Summit of cash game accomplishments: Being a nosebleeds crusher. And the man pulled it off.

He was winning or losing millions each night while living a quiet and relatively anonymous life.

Then he decided for some ungodly reason to start a training site.

He had to think something like, “Yeah, making bajillions playing cash is just isn’t doing it for me. I think I’ll invest my lifeforce into taking on a super tough project so that I can earn 10x less while also doing 10x more work”…Right?

Or maybe I’m missing something. Maybe he made a multi-million dollar bet that he could create the world’s best poker training site in 10 years or less. That would make some sense.

Or maybe he LOST a bet and his punishment was that he had to create SolveForWhy so that he couldn’t spend as much time on the felt busting people up.

This is a theory I can get behind because it makes even more sense when you take into account that a couple months ago he dropped the price of a monthly S4Y subscription an absurd 94% from $149/mo to $9.99/mo.

Whoever he lost the bet to must have been super pissed because he was making too much money.

Berkey is NOT allowed to crush it while he’s in content creation jail!

Anyway you slice it there’s no way Berkey can rationally solve for why he created SolveForWhy.

Yet he did and now we all get to reap the rewards.

If you can come up with a good argument for why every single human being shouldn’t take advantage of Berkey’s poor choice I’m dying to hear it.
