In honor of our 100th episode, we have an all-star lineup on this week's podcast. James "SplitSuit" Sweeney, Ed Miller, Mike Gano, Dr. Tricia Cardner and Doug Hull all drop by to share their answer to a single question: What first inspired you to study, and what inspires you to continue to study?" You'll hear five very different stories about falling in love not just with the game of poker, but the study thereof. It's a unique look into the lives of five very accomplished poker coaches, and there is something for poker players at every level to relate to here.
