#170 Carlos Welch: Homeless Poker Player Wins WSOP Bracelet, Uses Winnings to Buy House for NOT Himself
Today’s guest on CPG is one of the most prolific CPG guests and, of course, one of my personal favorites, the always incredible Carlos Welch.And because I know Carlos is so great, today’s show is a very special one indeed because the man has recently claimed some brand-spanking-new hardware:He scooped Event 8 in the 2021 WSOP Online poker series for $124k and claimed his first WSOP gold bracelet.If you’re new to CPG or somehow missed the earlier episodes with Carlos (Which, if you did … you’ll be serving yourself well by going back and checking them out after this), he’s well-known in the world of poker for being the dude who plays and coaches poker professionally while living out of his Prius.

Joao Vieira may not be a household name in poker, but maybe he should be. At an incredibly tough $25k final table, he plays a hand SO well that we may have to rethink the landscape of the top tournament players in the world.

Today’s guest on CPG is Justin Saliba, who just took down the $5,300 High Roller WSOP online event for a tidy little $253k as well as a gold bracelet.Justin first came onto my radar less than a year ago as my PokerCoaching.com liaison and I’d love to tell you I knew all about his immense poker talent straight away, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.As a matter of fact we barely even discussed poker because, for some silly reason, I just assumed he was some dude who scheduled and planned stuff for me.Hilariously, I’ve called him multiple times out of the blue whenever I’ve had any kind of tech issues for a live PC webinar or play & explain. I like to imagine he was in the zone playing a full slate of high stakes MTT’s only to be interrupted by yours truly because I couldn’t figure out whether my audio’s working on my own.Ah, lovely ignorance.

After some reflection on Gareth’s early training videos and how cringeworthy he now thinks they are, the hosts talked about how it’s important to give yourself kindness and compassion! Everyone is changing and growing over time and it’s important to acknowledge that. Then they turned their attention to a question sent in by a listener who wants to know if he made a mistake in a bounty spot.Topics covered include:* A brief summary of how decisions change based on available bounties* How to evaluate chip EV versus bounty EV* Why it’s important not to call too tight when bounties are involved* Why sometimes the “mistakes” we get hung up on are actually a form of mental game leakWant us to answer your poker question?
