Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week Mike and Adam are from South America in studio with a feature interview with Justin 'Stealthmunk' Schwartz. Schwartz is legendary in the online poker world as much for his antics away from tables and on the online forums as he is for success at the tables as high stakes cash and tournament player. Schwartz relives some of the old stories, and discusses his involvement as one of the early adapters of Bitcoin Poker. Scotty Yeates of Ultimate Poker joins the program to talk about the early growing pains of real money poker in New Jersey, including issues with software, player geolocating and depositing. In forum static, the guys discuss a crazy tale of a poker player who nearly had 100K stolen from him...twice, look at the amazing success story of live poker in Montreal, and discuss poker player Dan Bilzerian's rising fame as a social media darling. With just a month to go before PCA 2014, Pokerstars Steve returns to discuss the big event and the guys give away the password to the December 8th Pokerstars Invitational for Pokercast Listeners.
