Full Episode Description
Today on the Mental Game of Poker Podcast I’m joined by two very interesting guests who have unique viewpoints on a two important issues that are all too common within poker. First up is Mike Weeks, the director and producer of a new poker documentary "Drawing Dead" about the highs and lows of online poker from two very different perspectives. One player, Dusty Schmidt, won millions and the other, Michael Korpi, became so addicted he stole credit cards so he could keep playing online poker. The film will be premiering at the Thin Line Film Festival – Dallas area - on Friday February 15th at 6:30pm. If you live in the area go check it out! You can follow Mike on Twitter: @DrawingDeadDoc My second guest, Daniel, is in the process of recovering from extreme isolation where he spent two year barely leaving his apartment and not interacting with anyone. Motivated to change he sought therapy and wrote a thread on 2+2 called, "Two Years of Solitude: A cautionary tale for poker professionals," where he chronicles the rebuilding of his social life. This is a silent problem and hopefully Daniel’s story will encourage others to get help.
