Josh Arieh on social media:

Josh Arieh has been in and around the game of poker his entire adult life and has racked up more than $8.1 million in lifetime MTT cashes.

I feel like I’m in danger of going full Troy McClure in this intro but you may remember Mr. Arieh from the time he got third in the 2004 WSOP ME (The year that past CPG guest Greg “Fossilman” Raymer went the distance), his two WSOP gold bracelet victories, or from the legendary bad beat he put on Bryce Yockey at the final table the $50k Poker Players Championship playing 2-7 triple draw.

It was a particularly brutal hand where he busted poor Mr. Yockey despite being a more than 99% underdog.

One thing that tends to get left out of that story, by the way, is the fact that Josh had a commanding chip lead 4-handed and doubling up Yockey would have only cost him about 15% of his stack.

Another fun little story about that event is that one of my closest friends (The man I have to give a hat tip to for introducing Josh and I in the first place) actually bought a rather large piece of Josh for that event.

What Bryce Yockey didn’t know he had going against him is that my friend runs absurdly hot backing players so spiking a 1%’er was honestly kind of expected.

But when it comes to having a rich, colorful, successful journey through the world of gambling and playing poker it’s hard to find a more compelling character than Josh Arieh.

He has undeniably lived a fulfilling life of high adventure on the green felt Chasing Poker Greatness.

And in today’s episode featuring the one and only Josh Arieh, you’re going to learn:

Josh’s origin story into the world of poker and playing cards.

What Josh was feeling, thinking, and experiencing at that legendary 2004 ME final table.

The project Josh is currently working on will very likely fire you up.

And much, MUCH more!

And now, without any further ado, I bring to you a fearless gambler who has stood the test of time… the one and only Josh Arieh.
