Merchdawg’s Weekly Podcast Roundup

by , Jan 21, 2011 | 12:00 pm

SN”Omg”addon was one of the many reasons that resulted in last weeks roundup to not get posted, the other main reason was that I left my laptop and was unable put things together. My apologies if you have been sitting here all week waiting on my recommendations in complete silence, hopefully this weeks selections will make up for that awkward silence.

The Poker Edge:

Fresh off his trip to the Bahamas for the PokerStar Caribbean Adventure Andrew Feldman and Phil Gordon join forces to discuss the biggest hand of heads-up play from the PCA Main Event. Jeffrey Pollack and Annie Duke join the podcast to discuss the details of their new poker league. You can listen to the entire podcast on ESPN.com, or download it directly via iTunes.

The Poker Room Radio Show:

Want to know what is going on in the Florida poker scene? These guys from the Jax Poker Room bring you the latest happenings in Florida along with some other discussion. This week the guys discuss the upcoming Chad Brown NLHE Championship and the tourneys leading up to the Main Event. They close out the show discussing table pet peeves, one of which is eating at the table. You can catch this weeks show online at The Poker Room Radio Show site.

Gambling Tales Podcast Show:

This is a fairly new podcast out there that has a no frills approach. They get right to the subject on hand without all the normal banter and poker news that can be found on most other podcast. This week “Short-Stacked Shamus” joins the host to discuss the the novel King of a Small World by Rick Bennet. Shamus reads a passage from the book followed by the crew having a short discussion. If you are looking for a short podcast to get you from home to work this would be a great addition. You can either listen to the show on the Gambling Tells Podcast site or download it directly from iTunes.


And Then There Were Five…

$50K HORSE Running Slow But Steady

by , Jun 29, 2008 | 7:39 pm

It has taken over three hours to see three players hit the door in the $50K HORSE. It has seemed slow at times, but the intensity at the table dictates that this could be a long night.

8th place – Patrick Bueno – $230,880
He was the short stack with less than 700K upon sitting down today, so it was only a matter of time before he would make a move. He did it against Lyle Berman and lost. The French businessman bid adieu to the table.

7th place – Huck Seed – $284,160
Huck never has much to say, and neither do I.

6th place – Barry Greenstein – $355,200
Though he’s not the kind of guy most people would want at a fun dinner party, Barry’s story at the WSOP, especially in this event, would have been a great one. He is the only player to have cashed in each of the three years that the $50K HORSE has been played, and this was his second year in a row for a final table in it. He already won a WSOP bracelet a few weeks ago in seven-card razz, but he couldn’t pull of the big one with his short stack. (That just sounded wrong, I know.) He did earn his sixth cash of the WSOP, though. Not a bad showing for the Bear this year so far.

After 75 hands, Michael DeMichele has taken the chip lead. Lookie here for the PokerNews chip counts:

Michael DeMichele – 3,700,000
Erick Lindgren – 3,400,000
Scotty Nguyen – 3,300,000
Lyle Berman – 2,200,000
Matt Glantz – 2,150,000
