19:20Ana's experience against Romanian players: "They're aggressive, but I don't see a big difference. I've actually played with a lot of Romanians."
23:00Should poker rooms be accommodating towards vloggers? "I think it's a good idea, I think vlogging is really cool, it's attracting more attention to the game."
27:20Do women get treated differently at the poker table in different countries? "Everywhere is kinda the same, I don't see it so much, I don't notice it so much."
33:00GTO conversation: "I think there's more talk than actually what's going on. Everyone talks about GTO, how many people are actually implementing it right?"
37:30Are a lot of young players still coming into the game? "Maybe it has to do with the high roller scene. When the young kids came when I started playing poker and everything, there was no high roller scene. It was easier for all of us to jump into high stakes...it was easier to make money back then."
42:00Goals for 2019: "I'm trying to learn to have small goals. I'm trying to do things little by little. I always have too many big goals and too much expectations."
45:40Turning into a tournament grinder: "Everything you do before tournaments builds how your game is going to be. Sit-n-go players are pretty good with short stack in tournaments, cash game players are good playing deep...I'm a firm believer if you want to be an elite poker player, you have to dig in all the varieties."
54:50Next week: Jeff will take over hosting duties while Sarah travels back...he'll be joined by 2017 WSOP Main Event Champion Scott Blumstein!
