Ep. 4 - Ylon Schwartz: A Poker Champion's Secret Revealed

On this week's show, James and Aaron Brabham chat with Ylon Schwartz: poker champion, chess master, and gamer extraordinaire.

He is without a doubt one of the most intriguing characters you're ever likely to encounter...

College Dropout Who Has Never Had a Real Job Wins $8 Million in Cash at the Poker Table...

If you watched the 2008 World Series of Poker, you may remember Ylon Schwartz and his trademark curly locks...

The day before the championship, Ylon was drowning in debt and in trouble with the law back in his hometown of New York City. From rock bottom, he redirected years of frustrations about money and women, channeling it towards winning the game...

... and walked out of the Las Vegas Rio Casino with a cool $3.7 million in his pocket.

In fact, Ylon has won an estimated $8 million in cash, just from playing poker. Not bad for a college dropout who has never held a job.

Today, he's one of the most widely recognized and well-respected poker players in the world.
