Joe McKeehen joins us from Vegas a night after going wire to wire as dominating chip leader in the November 9. Joe talks more openly than he could before about his preparation for the final table, some tells he picked up during play, the bracelet and his plans for the future. After a break our friend Ryan “Protential" Laplante joins us to review the final table, the broadcast and run through this years November Niners. The guys talk strategy and review some of the interesting and important hands that were on the show. Matthew Hilger joins us from the Pokerstars VIP club after the break to talk about the very controversial changes that were announced over the last couple of weeks.
