Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast is OG high stakes online poker crusher Chris Sparks, and it’s one of those conversations that I live for.
I don’t exactly know how Chris, a man whose network of friends includes a who’s who of poker royalty (Including nosebleed live destroyer of worlds, Garrett Adelstein), managed to slip underneath my radar for so long, but I am so grateful I got a chance to right that wrong.
In my defense… While Chris still battles in both the digital and live arenas, these days he spends most of his energy outside of poker in the startup space, where he focuses on streamlining systems & processes so that these businesses can efficiently maximize their resources (Gee, I wonder where he first started learning & developing those skills?).
If you’d like to dive deeper into what Chris is up to these days, you should check out his home base on the world wide web forcingfunction.com which includes an incredible & forever relevant poker article titled:

With that said, in today’s conversation with Chris Sparks you’re going to learn:
All about Chris’s journey through the world of online poker.
The hard-won poker lessons he regularly applies to his daily life.
Lessons he’s learned in the world of startups that you can apply to your poker game.
And much, MUCH more!
Now, without any further ado, I bring to you high performance & leadership wizard… The one and only Chris Sparks.
