When Marle Cordeiro was invited to sit down at one of the most elite cash games in Vegas, she decided to take her big shot and play for mortgage-sized pots.

Marle also happens to be a creative who puts out a lot of content. She’s dabbled in Twitch streaming with her boyfriend Spraggy, and she’s got a hilarious YouTube channel called MarlzTV, where she shares her comedy sketches. Marle also started a poker podcast with Jamie Kerstetter called The Rake.

In this episode, Marle talks about what it’s like to make a huge jump in stakes, her move from live cash to online MTTs in the quarantine poker economy, and some helpful tips for content creators who are just getting started.

3 Key Points

  1. Streaming on Twitch as a poker player is harder than it looks! Marle talks about the struggles of entertaining and still trying to play well but inevitably making more mistakes. Streaming is also energy draining for introverts because of the high-intensity interactions with a live audience.
  2. Therapy can help with unblocking your creativity or keeping it flowing. Marle shares that seeing a therapist recently has been helpful in working through anxiety and perfectionism to access her creative flow more readily.
  3. If you’re just getting started with creating content, go with what YOU find entertaining! Don’t worry too much about the editing or the cameras or the lighting. Marle says your idea is the most important part of the creative process, so don’t worry about having a plan. Take your idea and just start making content. You’ll learn and grow along the way.
