This is an excerpt from the audiobook; Day 2.  The book is broken down into 28 days of study, and in this second day I discuss how to hand read the villain in a hand and give you a link to a video that demonstrates this.  I then discuss an article I studied and share with you my notes on the article, and lastly I dive into my database to learn ways I can improve my game.  I end the day with my warm-up and cool down for the session I play later in the day.
