Happy Monday people! The PokerNews crew is back for another week of podcasts from the 2011 World Series of Poker, and today’s guest, Jay Rosenkrantz, jumps in during the first half of the episode rather than the second. The hosts touch upon Matthew (J)arvis’ win, break down whether or not Skittles colors have independent tastes, and discuss the name “Epic Poker League.”
The PokerNews crew is back to discuss Jason Mercier’s second bracelet win, where he ranks among the top tournament players in the world, and other musings revolving the 2011 World Series of Poker. Lauren Kling joins the program halfway through to talk about her series, her future and her entrepreneurial spirit.
The PokerNews crew is without host Matthew Parvis, but they soldier on through all of the news at the 2011 WSOP, including Phil Hellmuth’s second runner-up finish in seven days. Later, WPT Player of the Year and recent bracelet winner Andy Frankenberger joins the program to talk about his decision to play poker for a living, how he stays motivated, and the amount of pressure he puts on himself when he plays.
The PokerNews crew is back to break down the day’s WSOP news, make predictions, and give some PSA’s about texting and driving. Betrand “ElkY” Grospellier then joins the program to talk about how he can never win back-to-back tournaments, how he’s never played stud before, and his upcoming fight with fellow PokerStars Team Pro Lex Veldhuis.
The PokerNews crew breaks down all of the weekend’s news, including Phil Hellmuth’s attempt at a 12th bracelet, the end of prohibition in the Thunderdome, and the Heat’s loss to the Mavericks in the NBA Finals. Randall Flowers then joins the program to talk about Frolf, the best places to eat in Vegas and why this WSOP may be the “last hurray” for a lot of young players.
The crew is back to talk everything WSOP, including yesterday’s Event #9: $1,500 2-7 Draw Lowball final table, and the start of Events #10 $1,500 Six Handed No-Limit Hold’em and Event #11: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship. Later, Maria Ho joins the pod to discuss her runner-up finish in Event #4 $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em and to play a little game called Amazing Race: Maria vs. Mario.
It’s the first Friday here at the 2011 WSOP, and what could get us more pumped up than Rebecca Black? The crew is back to talk about yesterday’s $1M One Drop announcement, the number of entrants in the $5K event, the Grudge Matches, and today’s finale of the $25K Heads-Up World Championship. They’re then joined by Vice President of Caesars Interactive Entertainment Ty Stewart to talk about the state of the WSOP.
The PokerNews Podcast crew sits down to talk about Full Tilt Poker’s response to Phil Ivey’s lawsuit, the Elite Eight of the $25K Heads-Up World Championship and the rest of the tournaments currently running at the Rio. They are then joined by WSOP rookie Zach Gruneberg to discuss his schedule of events, his living situation in Vegas, and how Black Friday has affected his lifestyle.
