Welcome Lynne Ji!
A bit of Lynne’s poker backstory.
Fun times playing Vegas casinos at age 19 with a fake ID
More on playing tournaments whilst underage.
Jamie and Lynne just got back from hanging out together at a heads-up tournament in Cabo San Lucas.
Lynne talks about the event, getting busted by Jean Robert Bellande, and the epic drinking that followed.
Jamie shares her side of the story. Rooting for Lynne, joining in on the drinking, and congratulating her for taking the loss in stride.
Lynne was feeling down on poker before heading into the Cabo event. Did her experience there renew her passion for the game?
Jamie gives some love to Lynne’s vlog. What are her plans for content creation in that space?
The pain of trying to get people to agree to participate or collaborate in your poker content.
Is the transparency of having a poker vlog bad if you’re trying to play in private games?
Jamie appreciates the lack of expressed entitlement in Lynne’s approach to poker.
Lynne turns the table on Ben and asks about his background in poker, and how he met Jamie.
Lynne found it easier to find motivation to grind when she was living in a tiny apartment. Does minimalist living make it easier to focus?
Lynne feels happiest when she’s singularly focused on something fulfilling. Ben feels similarly.
Does Lynne have a drinking problem?
Thoughts on being young and just saying “yes” to new opportunities.
Love to WPT for running a great event and allowing Lynne to use all of her footage from it. Is the poker industry a bit backward in how restrictive it tends to be in its approach to event footage?
Now that Cabo has her feeling somewhat rejuvenated, what are Lynne’s immediate poker plans?
Lynne chats about a mystery friend who helped her gain a mature perspective on money.
If she wasn’t playing poker right now, what would she be doing?
Should Lynne replace Ben as cohost of The Rake?
Lynne flips the table again and asks Ben and Jamie what they would do if they couldn’t be involved in poker.
Wrapping up. Thanks Lynne!
