Pokercast Episode 15 - Brad Booth & Nolan Dalla
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - The feature guest on Pokercast this week is "Yukon" Brad Booth. We were lucky enough to get Brad into the studio only a few hours after he returned from an impressive second place finish at the Canadian Heads-Up Championship in Calgary. Brad talked about a variety of topics including his roller coaster ride in '07, his play on High Stakes Poker of GSN, and his runner-up finish to Huckleberry Seed at the Canadian Open. Nolan Dalla was also on the program to talk about a player who was recently ejected from the final table at one of the WSOP preliminary events in Atlantic City. Mike and Adam also interview the second Super Nova Qualifier and of course give away the password for the March 16th Poker Stars VIP Club freeroll for Pokercast listeners.

Born September 20, 1976, Brad Booth is a professional poker player from Vancouver, Canada. Booth describes himself as having played poker everyday for fourteen years. The game has taken him from Vancouver, to Calgary, to the Yukon (the origin of his name “Yukon Brad”), and Las Vegas.
