Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast is legendary MTT reaper of souls Mark “Dipthrong” Herm.

Mark has been on my radar as a force in the poker world for a very, very long time. Like 2007 Absolute Poker long.

Back in those days I was grinding away at cash games but allowed myself to take some shots here and there at some of the $200-$1k MTTs on Absolute for fun, and I specifically remember being aware of Dipthrong in every single tourney I played.

The fact that he’s still doing extraordinary things in the world of poker all these years later does not surprise me one bit.

What was very surprising to me was just how alike Mark and I are. We’re about the same age, we’ve been playing cards for about the same amount of time, and we both lean towards the intuitive side of poker more so than the analytical side.

I’m also extremely grateful that he’s also a genuinely open dude who isn’t afraid of discussing some of the more taboo areas of the poker lifestyle like struggling with mental health and adderall.

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

Why Mark bashes GTO every chance he gets.

How Elliot Roe has been especially impactful in Mark’s career.

Why Mark only plays on Sundays.

And much, MUCH more!

And now, without any further ado, it’s my absolute delight and pleasure to bring to you my conversation with the legendary Mark Herm.
