Darren Elias on social media:

Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast is longtime poker professional Darren Elias. Darren’s just 34 years old, but he’s already established himself as the end boss of the World Poker Tour.

It’s exceptionally difficult to win a prestigious award like WPT Player of the Year at any point but Darren is a man who eats extremely difficult things for breakfast.

Darren not only holds the record for most WPT wins with four but also holds the record for most Final Tables (12) and Cashes (38). He is a true model of consistency.

And like most high level players over the course of the pandemic, he’s taken advantage of his year being locked inside by immersing himself in online poker.

In his own words:

“The buy-ins are so much bigger, the level of play is so much higher, and you really have to bring your best.”

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Darren has risen to the occasion like he always does and feasted on the souls of his virtual competitors.

He’s also recently joined up with past CPG guest, the founder of Faded Spade, Tom Wheaton at “Above the Felt Entertainment” and you’re about to learn how that experience has been going.

In today’s episode packed full of Greatness Bombs with Darren Elias, you’re going to learn:

– Why Billy Baxter really needs to come onto CPG and tell us some stories.

– How Darren has tackled his transition back to being a regular in the online streets.

– The one thing that makes even the great Darren Elias anxious.

And much, MUCH more

Before you dive into this episode with Darren, I wanted to take a moment to let you know about my latest mini-course:

Neutralize River Leads

NRL is powered by Mass Data Analysis, which means the strategies were built based on what folks are ACTUALLY doing instead of what folks theoretically SHOULD do.

Neutralize River Leads is a “pay what you wish” mini-course so that you can experience the power of MDA at absolutely no upfront cost.
