Episode 97

Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast is the winner of the 2004 WSOP Main Event and Author of “Winning Tournament Strategies” Greg “Fossilman” Raymer.

Before I dive too deep into the intro, big thanks for D&B Poker publishing for putting this interview together (As well as the current & future CPG episodes with Amanda Botfeld, Ashley Adams, and Tricia Cardner).

In the world of poker, “Fossilman” is a living legend.

I remember the exact moment in time I was watching the 2004 WSOP Main Event with my old roommates. The Moneymaker boom had just begun and the WSOP was primetime must-see-TV on ESPN.

That was the year David Williams burst onto the scene, Josh Arieh became a household name if your household loves poker, and “Action” Dan Harrington went to back-to-back Main Event final tables.

It was a great year for poker.

Something that may be a little underappreciated today is Greg’s 2005 ME run one year later where he nearly defended his title but ultimately finished in 25th place.

I hope you’re ready and chomping at the bit to take a trip back to the golden age of poker.

In today’s episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why Greg thinks limit poker is underappreciated and wishes more limit games were spread.
  • Greg’s hilarious poker origin story after first learning how to count cards playing Blackjack.
  • Why Greg believes theory ought to be learned before tactics.
  • And much, MUCH more!

So without any further ado, I bring to you the patent attorney turned poker legend Greg “Fossilman” Raymer.
