Pokercast Episode 300 - Pokercast 3.0 with Shannon Shorr
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week Mike and Adam re-launch the Pokercast with a new theme song, new segments like "In case you missed it, Bump and the return of Storytime. The big story of the week is the kick-off of the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. A slow start as weather delays made it difficult to get there, but the action is fast and furious as thousands of poker players finally arrive. In "In case you missed it" Mike and Adam talk about Srsly Sirius' new video "Dan", touch on the Nick Cassavetes lawsuit for getting a bounced check from a fellow poker player and finally talk a bit about California and the chances of regulated gaming there any time soon. In the new "StatsGeek" segment MJ breaks down the total number of SuperNova Elites and the pace they had to maintain to get there. The feature guest this week is Shannon Shorr, who was recently named the 7th best poker player of the last decade by the GPI index. Shannon talks about finishing his degree in the middle of his poker career, distancing himself from emotion at the table and his take on travel expenses for the traveling poker pro. Shaun Deeb gives us a report from the tournament floor at the PCA and Gavin Smith tells us a story about the greatest poker tournament deal of his career. The password for the January 12th Pokerstars Invitational for Pokercast Listeners is given as well.
