Poker Cast 390 - Daniel Negreanu & Padraig Parkinson
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week on the Pokercast: A couple of fan favourites come on the show to talk about some news in and outside of poker. First Adam opens his letter from the DMV on air and we talk about Pokercast secret santa before we get into ICYMI. Daniel Negreanu joins us to talk more about the Pokerstars changes, his recent blog and his experience dealing with the PR nightmare over the last couple of weeks. Other stories this week include some new EPT winners in Prague and RAWA hearings in the US. Irish poker legend Padraig Parkinson then joins us from Paris, he talks about being in the city near the terrorist attacks, how he feels about Devilfish not being inducted to the poker hall of fame and of course regales us with a bunch of great poker stories. After Padraig we have a new inductee to the Internet Pokers Wall of Fame and former Party Poker room manager Mike O’Malley joins us to talk about that. After a short break we get to your voicemails, the mailbag, review some of Ross’ hands from the week, share our favourite things and there's a new password and format to the Pokercast Invitational!
Music: From Kid - Come in (2015), Exmag - Takin' It To The Max (2015)
