“I’m extreme. When I do something, I want to go all-out and maximize the experience,” Faraz Jaka said on Real Talk about his approach to life and poker lifestyle. Jaka is outgoing, has traveled the world and playing the highest stakes. Also joining us is Ari Engel, who’s taken a more conservative approach to the game, but he’s been successful for more than a decade now, outlasting many of his opponents who took more risks and sought out volatility.

“I’ve asked myself thousands of times throughout my career if I should be continuing playing. There has not been a year where I haven’t asked myself that despite all my success,” Angel said about his life as a professional.

Both Jaka and Engel have interesting stories, and on this episode of Real Talk they show that there are many ways that lead to success.
