This week's podcast features a hand history breakdown provided by Adam Jones. Lots of strategy concepts are discussed, primarily around planning your bet sizing across three streets.

For $5/week, CORE provides all the tools you need in structured lessons to help you analyze your own hands, and to take your game to the next level.
