“I’m never satisfied.” -Bryan Pellegrino
In this episode of the Heads Up Sit and Go Podcast, you’ll learn:
– How Bryan found his way to Heads Up Sit and Gos.
“The tournament schedule was just so bad for a Euro schedule. Anytime I went deep in anything I was up till 5am, 6am, 10am, and it was just way too hard to do that an manage anything. So I ended up switching over and playing Heads Up exclusively.”
– His thoughts on the new Spin-and-Go format.
“I can see why fish love them – it’s super addicting.”
– His opinion about reg wars, and how playing regs has affected his game.
“Most of the games I’m playing right now is battling regs – which is good because it lets me study and keeps my game sharp and I think I’m not losing any of my edge at all. Whereas if I was just grinding fish I would be getting slowly getting worse by not studying, and not staying on top of having to face high level opponents.”
– How he feels his poker skills have translated into real world business skills and helped him be successful as an entrepreneur.
“Biggest 2 biggest things that translate well for someone moving from poker to something else: 1. My ability to just put in extremely long hours with a solely focused goal is extremely helpful in the start-up world. 2. The ability to look at things rationally and evaluate them in terms of risk & reward.”
– How he made a super deep run in the WSOP Main Event, finishing 42nd overall – he was 1 hand away from being top 3 with only 45 players left!
– Some really funny degenerate stories about living in Vegas with out high stake Heads up Sit and Go poker players!
BONUS: Bryan talks about some $100,000 pots he’s won and lost playing cash games!
