Start off your poker news-week by catching up with what the main topics of convo were last week. We all talk a little LAPT-Lima, the predictable plug-pulling on Bellagio’s Rebuypalooza, Bryan Devonshire’s recent score … and whether or not he matches up with the
likes POWER of Dwyte Pilgrim. Bluff magazine’s Jess Welman steps up to fill in (nicely) for BJ … She, Gary, and PokerRoad’s new low-stakes columnist Ben Conoley talk about the sudden re-resurgence of poker on TV, and then I rejoin the crew to discuss the “retirement” of Mike “Timex” McDonald … apparently at age 20 he already can hear the clock ticking on his prospects for a fulfilling career.
Also … in an April 1st treat (ha ha listeners), BJ steps outside his usual fact-stat box to sub for Joe Stapleton and deliver the Tight Laydown. What-the … manager mixing it up in preparation for the World Cup. Tune in next week as Gary pretends to be Huff by wearing a tie on the air and I reveal myself to be Isildur1 and/or The Insider outs himself as @AsianSpa!
