Click any of the icons below, sit back, relax and enjoy my conversation with Thomas Bain on Chasing Poker Greatness.
Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast is none other than Greatness Village Associate Coach and Tactical Tuesday co-host Thomas Bain.
Thomas is a professional poker player, poker coach, podcaster-in-training, and poker course creator. He’s also a really amazing human who I feel blessed to call my close friend. You might not know this but it’s entirely possible Chasing Poker Greatness would not exist today if it weren’t for Terminator Thomas.
A few years back I stopped taking on new poker students and assumed they’d all eventually drop off and I could laser focus on being the best cardplayer I could be. Surprisingly, year after year Thomas just kept on paying for coaching sessions. Those coaching sessions became regular reminders of just how much fulfillment and happiness I got from guiding folks in their poker journeys.
Thomas, above all else, has a poker mind like a diamond. He’s been one of the biggest winners at every single stake he’s ever played, live or online. There are times in our private Slack Community where Thomas gives next-level feedback on a hand history or poker strategy question and I think to myself, “Damn, that’s absolute genius. How am I supposed to be coaching this dude?”
Then, of course, he tried to do an intro for Tactical Tuesday and I learned that maybe he doesn’t have it all figured out just yet.
In today’s episode you’re going to learn:
- Thomas’s poker origin story, including how him and I originally met.
- Why Thomas graduated with a degree in Organizational Psychology from Ivy League Columbia University but forgot to actually use it.
- Why the mere mention of Kevin Rabichow makes Thomas’s heart flutter.
- And much, MUCH more!
So without any further ado, I bring to you my oldest student, partner in course creation, and dear friend Thomas Bain.
