One Year Anniversary
It is hard for me to believe, but the reincarnated website JonathanLittlePoker.com is one year old! Managing this site and making sure all of the content is produced and uploaded at the correct time is a ton of work. That being said, this website has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Every day when I roll out of bed, I look forward to working on it and sharing my experiences with you.
Each week during the past year,I have posted an educational poker blog and also uploaded an episode of my podcast Weekly Poker Hand. I also self-published two books, The Main Event with Jonathan Little and Strategies for Beating Small Stakes Poker Tournaments, both of which you have made best-sellers on Amazon (Strategies is still the #1 best seller!). I also published Jonathan Little’s Excelling at No-Limit Hold’em, which I am confident will be one of the most influential poker books ever printed. Finally, I hosted a weekly home game where I gave away $1,500 in cash plus loads of prizes to the players. If it were not for all of your support, none of this would have been possible. Thank you!!!
Today I am going to share with you 10 of my favorite blog posts from the past 12 months. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.

While poker is full of amazing people who greatly benefit the world, there are also people who constantly try to bring everyone else down.

Learning From Zach Elwood
During the 2014 WSOP, I hosted a live seminar with Zach, who gave an excellent presentation. I took what I learned and instantly found a reliable tell on one of my opponents. I used it to my advantage and didn’t lose my stack in what would normally be considered an unavoidable cooler. Zach’s lesson won me $1,500 on the first day!

My Podcast List
I listen to a TON of podcasts. When I am working out or traveling, I am filling my brain as fast as possible with information that will ideally benefit my life.
