Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast is the author of SCOOP! Winning High Low Concepts for the Hold’em Mind volumes 1, 2, & 3 Greg Vail.

Greg’s a Red Chip Poker Coach and cash game pro who specializes in the world of Big O and Omaha Hi-Lo.

Greg’s poker career is split into two acts:

The first act was from 2005-2010. He was a young, immature kid with horrible spending habits and no discipline trying to figure out how to navigate the world.

Spoiler alert: That didn’t end so well.

So, recognizing he needed to disrupt his lifestyle, Greg joined the Army in 2010 until he was medically discharged in 2015.

Act 2 began in 2015 when Greg fell back into the poker world except this time he was a totally different human being. Strong discipline has a way of doing that.

Since then he’s written 3 books, has helped student after student learn how to improve their split pot skills, and lives for providing and raising his daughter.

In today’s episode, you’re going to learn:

Why Greg chooses to both play and teach split-pot games.

The lessons & wisdom Greg took with him from the Army into poker.

How teaching has helped Greg and myself become better players.

And much, MUCH more!
