In the grand tradition of Rocky Balboa, Return to Mayberry, and The Brady Girls Get Married, your favorite poker podcast returned today with a brand-spankin’ new episode. Five months after announcing their “retirement” — has it really been five months? seems like three — the group collectively determined the whole is worth more than the sum of the parts, and have thus decided to try and recreate the adventure, the thrill, the magic that is Beyond the Table.

Or, as Tom puts it, “We all got bored with our lives.”

The return show finds our intrepid trio (plus Sit-N-Go Steve) in classic BTT form, managing to cover a wide range of topics despite (or because) Dan is sitting on his mute button. Following the awkward reintroductions (“uh… do I know you?”), the fellas discuss the recent WCOOP successes of Tom (a.k.a., “luvgamble”), team poker tourneys, political prop-betting, the differing concerns of amateurs and pros at the WSOP, and UB cheating scandal rumors.

They even get down to brass tacks and answer some poker-related listener calls, suggesting that if you were to call the listener line — (888) 820-8091 — they might well answer your question sometime during the next six months or so, too! You can also email ’em at theshow(at)beyondthetable(dot)com.

    luvgamble? HA…sounds like luvhandle…GAY. What happened to donkeybomber? At least that sounds manly. Let me catch u playing online poker in a thong, Tom.

    Tough decision, listen to BTT or Gary Wise’s podcast. What to do, what to do?

  3. Kevin Mathers

    OK, Gary’s show ended early, so am listening now.

  4. DanM

    OK, Kevin, though you are flirting with becoming the first ever reader banned from a non-dot-ru locale with your “dilemma”.

    One of the reasons why podcasts work over live internet radio is because you can listen at your own convenience.

    I’m not able to listen to it. When I click on “Click here to listen” is doesn’t take me anywhere, just back to the top of the post. And since I don’t have iTunes, I tried the subscribe feed but don’t know how that works either. Help! I want me some BTT!

  6. Kevin Mathers

    I’m well aware of that Dan, just having a little fun. Doesn’t the show usually have a player embedded in the page, like with the Tao of Pokerati podcasts.

  7. Karridy

    Jen… It could be your popup blocker jacking the player. Click on the RSS icon, then the first audio file.

  8. DanM

    actually, karridy, something must’ve changed with the link. it was working for me earlier today, but isn’t now.

  9. Karridy

    I found some duct tape and fixed what WordPress jacked up.

  10. DanM

    Dude, don’t go blaming wordpress … blame shamus!

  11. DanM

    BTW, Karridy, I just noticed the frontal fanny pack on your blasphemous Jesus. Nice touch!

  12. DanM

    Just a correction — my Roshambo bet with Iggy in ’06 was for $100, not $500.
