Pokercast 347: Joe Ingram and Alexandre Dreyfus
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week on the Pokercast: Terrence caught a bug in Bali, but he's a trooper so he gets on Skype for this weeks jam packed show. The guys start with the release of the WSOP Schedule for this summer, including the anticipated $5M guaranteed $565 buy in "Colossus" event to kick off this years series. Some topics of debate are the return of the $10M guarantee for 1st place in the Main Event and the 2 buy in levels for mix game tournaments, $1500 and $10k. Some other things discussed in the first segment are the Bluff Awards and the University of Alberta claiming that they have solved limit hold'em with their bot "Cepheus". We couldn't forget the 2015 PCA too as the guys recap the beginning of the festival in the Bahamas and whether or not the Atlantis resort is worth a visit. Then Joe Ingram aka ChicagoJoey aka Joeingram1 is welcomed back to the Pokercast, some may know him for the crazy prop bets he has done in the past but now he is hosting a podcast series on YouTube featuring some of the greats of the online poker world. He comes on to discuss his show, the high stakes PLO community and tell some stories including how he went Ferrari shopping in Vancouver. Right after Joe, Alexandre Dreyfus joins us from Malta to defend why poker awards shows should be a thing. Alex is the owner of the Global Poker Index and he is very passionate about growing the game. He plans to host the first American Poker Awards in Los Angeles this year and is rallying the support of the Poker industry to make it as successful as possible. In the PokerStars segment, old friend of the Pokercast Steve Day returns to the show with some good news straight from the Isle of Man, and of course the password for the Pokerstars invitational is given out!
