Interview with Cog Dis


Charles Hawk: What are you up to recently? What changed since we last talked almost a year ago?

Cog Dis: I'm still grinding spins and coaching them. Even though I don't own the stable, I'm proud of what has been achieved (in the one I am working in), guys are getting from 7s to 30s in record times, some of them as little as 4 weeks, and some guys are getting to 60s in 6 weeks.

My life outside of work has been great. My boys are growing up. The eldest is 15 now and 6 feet tall, he towers over me.

Charles Hawk: Tell me about your performance this year. How are you doing? Any graphs?

Cog Dis: I've been doing well at 60s spins, but low sample sizes. My last 3k games have been at 55 chip ev which I think is decent.

Charles Hawk: How have population tendencies changed comparing with year ago in spins? What new have you learned?

Cog Dis: I'd say the games are getting tougher, but to be honest my chip ev has been getting better and better. I used to only do 43 chips at 60s.

Interview with Jiri 'dusan32' Dusek



Charles Hawk: Could you write me a short follow-up? What are you up to recently? What changed in your life since we last talked (CLICK HERE)?

Jiri 'dusan32' Dusek: Two big changes in my life from since we last talked. The first thing that I can't play on from Czech because there is new lottery law. I can still play on but there is no hypers sngs and no spins so it doesn't have value for me. But from other side I have to travelling (what I'm really enjoying) and I can see the amazing places in the world. So, probably not as bad as it looks like.

And second thing is that I decided to join staking program and start learning spins. This help me a lot because as I said last time I haven't studied as I want before but now I have coaching 6 time per week and can post HHs in group chat. and this move my game forward.
