This episode of Killer Poker Analysis, my guest was Charlie Shoten. Back in 2002, Charlie took down $112,800 for his 1st place finish at the main event at Hustler Casino's Gland Slam of Poker. And by the end of 2004, he had two more 6-figure cashes: 2nd place at the California State Championship for $107,350, and 2nd place at the WPT Borgata Poker Open for $235,000. In 2003, Cardplayer magazine ranked Charlie among the top 10 poker tournament players, and his lifetime winnings exceed $1,000,000.
For most of his life, Charlie battled in high stakes limit cash games, and he takes that experience with him when he plays limit poker tournaments. The winning mindset he puts forth in his book, No Limit Life, enabled him to make the transition to no-limit hold'em tournaments, and since 2002, he hasn't looked back!
Charlie is a great player, and an enthusiastic teacher. Besides his book, he's a member of the team at Deepstacks. He's headlining one or two speaking events this month that you should definitely check out if you're in his neck of the woods (check out the show for more details), and he's also speaking at the 2007 California Poker Players Conference at Hollywood Park Casino Oct. 20-21.
This will be yet another don't-miss show...don't miss it! And don't forget that this is the first hour-long edition of Killer Poker Analysis.
