Today’s guest is the author of Modern Poker Theory: Building an Unbeatable Strategy Based on GTO Principles Michael Acevedo.

If you’re unaware of the poker world’s reception to Modern Poker Theory, let me catch you up.

Michael’s book has ignited a fire under the elite minds in our game, is already being referred to as the modern poker bible, and has been called the best poker book ever written by Brandon Adams.

What may have slipped under your radar is that there was a very real chance not all that long ago that Michael’s career as a poker player was anything but certain.

His path to game-changing author was a much more winding route than his contemporaries and, as you’ll soon find out, it wasn’t because of any lack of natural talent.

After crushing his bankroll and falling short time and time again Michael’s poker career hinged on swallowing his pride, moving back in with his mom who did NOT approve of her brilliant son being a poker player (For many good reasons), and for once and all devoting every single aspect of his being to chasing poker greatness.

In our conversation, you’re also going to learn:

How Michael believes a beloved childhood toy laid the foundation for his future poker success.

Who gave Michael the last chance he so desperately desired in his final push to be a successful poker player.

What Michael believes held him back from achieving poker greatness for so long.

And much, MUCH more!
