James Romero on social media:

Welcome, welcome, welcome to Chasing Poker Greatness. I’m your host, the founder of EnhanceYourEdge.com Brad Wilson and today’s guest is currently the 26th ranked player in the world (According to the Global Poker Index) James Romero.

If James isn’t a familiar name to you yet, it’s only a matter of time. 

Over the last 4 years battling in the live poker arena, James has racked up a ridiculous $4.7 million in winnings including a $1.9 million score at the WPT 5 Diamond Classic in 2016. 

In our conversation today, James and I will cover his poker journey from living in Mexico battling in the online arena to becoming one of the most feared competitors at any table he sits at.

You’re going to hear about the expectations that come with winning one of the most prestigious events of the year straight out of the gate, how James maintained his energy levels and focus heading into a tournament with life-chasing ramifications, and what his future holds in the poker world (To foreshadow a little on this, he also took down a $25k high roller a few short weeks after we had recorded our interview).

You’ll also learn:

– James’ thoughts on bankroll considerations for folks that consistently play $5k and $10k events.

– The thing you ABSOLUTELY must have to ensure you don’t get eaten live when you’re at the top of the cash game/tournament world.

– EXACTLY how James studies and improves his game in a live setting.

– And much, much more. 

So, without any further ado, I bring to you my conversation with one of the elite players in the world James Romero.
