Pokercast 357 - Jason Koon and David Tuchman
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week on the Pokercast: Adam’s on tilt in the beginning of this weeks episode as he is running bad vs. the traffic cops once again but he cheers up quick to bring another full show to you! Terrence, still in Mexico brings us some news from there and tells us of his plans for Vegas before we get into “In Case You Missed It". The top story this week is a thread that was started in NVG in which a player has come forwards claiming his account on stars was hacked and money was stolen. Adam and Terrence get deep into the facts of this case, Terrence recounts his experience working at Pokerstars back in the day, explains how things are different nowadays and advocates the use of RSA keys. The guys offer their personal solutions then move onto the other stories of the week which include: The Global Poker Masters which were held by the GPI this week, EPT Malta, a bad ruling at the ANZPT Sydney and the Borgata free throw tournament. Our feature guest this week is Jason Koon who joins us from NYC for an interview that ranges from kale shakes to winning high rollers to a pet seal and everything in between. The interview is truly jam packed and you’ll have to experience it for yourself! David Tuchman joins us after that to preview his summer streaming the WSOP final tables again. If you missed last year’s final table streams you missed out on some awesome poker content (although they are still available) and this summer should be awesome too. Tuchman talks about why he loves his job and how he chooses his guests for the streams. In the last segment Steve Day joins us from Pokerstars HQ to further discuss the hacked account, Micro Millions and new Pokerstars team members. The guys also review the Mailbag, 140 or less and the format and password for the Pokercast Invitational is within the show!
