A little Pokerati behind-the-scenes …

My distinguished internet radio colleague, “Wolfman” Karridy, tipping us off to the developing Gregg Merkow-Tunica love story:

Same event he won last year. Tunica’s Main event. Maybe I’m wrong… I really thought you’d know more about this than me. I’d hate to slip, but I think he’s onto something huge.

Which event? Is this the same event he won last year or something like that, or did he win won last week?

He’s going for back to back wins in a major, and looks well positioned to do so. You sure you don’t want to get the scoop on that?

Haven’t gotten to investigate recording.

In what event? In tunica?

I don’t think he’s necessarily great to have on for this case, but I like the idea of having on. What would it take for us to do a pre-recorded interview?

I can’t find anyplace that is doing good coverage, but I believe Merkow is sitting pretty. I have his cell (As I’m sure you do). Should we try to line him up or do a pre-recorded interview?

OK, upon second thought, yeah, we probably should have him on the show. “Beyond the Table” — live on Hold’em Radio at 7 pm central. If we can get Gregg on, Tom can ask him what it’s like to be a successful pro.

    Oops, note … it just occurred to me that Gregg could be at the table tomorrow at that time.
