Manage episode 297252967 series 2506653
Jennifer brings longtime friend, a master of many games, Jonathan Corbblah on to the GRID. He talks about a dramatic hand with nine-five suited in a private game at the Hamptons, where his new opponent confused him to the very last moments of the hand.
Jonathan speaks about how his psychological approach helps him in every game, from crushing private poker games to beating grandmasters in blitz to becoming a Jeopardy champion. He details how he closed in on a million dollars on TV, and challenges Jennifer and the audience to do better. (Spoiler alert- Jennifer doesn’t!)
Corbblah also mentions how Jennifer’s brother, Greg Shahade, made him a better Scrabble player, and how it all traced back to the matriarchs of both families (Greg’s blog, as mentioned on the pod, can be found here.). Corbblah is a host of the trivia show, Masterminds, and has appeared on over 13 game shows from Cash Cab to Wheel of Fortune. You can also find him on a mock TV show that Jennifer and GRID producer Daniel Meirom produced a decade ago, America’s Next Chess Star.
