(Legendary Episode) Garrett Adelstein Goes Deep On His Battle W/ Depression

(Legendary Episode) Garrett Adelstein Goes Deep On His Battle W/ Depression

April 12, 2019

TIMESTAMPS BELOW: Garrett Adelstein is a high stakes poker player regular on the show LiveAtTheBike and one of the most popular poker players in the poker world today. Garrett is known for his ability to bet any amount at any given time with any two cards. I don't play much Texas Hold'em but if I did, I would never fold top pair in my life to Garrett (and I would probably lose a bunch of money with this strategy.) I'm excited to have Garrett back on as he is one of my favorite people to talk to and our previous podcast today was one of the most popular.
