Poker Cast 402 - Faraz Jaka
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week on the Pokercast: GPL team manager, world traveller and all around good guy Faraz Jaka! To start Adam hit a 1 outer in traffic court and Terrence reviews the UFC upsets. In ICYMI: Is Russia close to regulating online poker? An Amsterdam court rules poker is not a game of skill… A player gets heads up with his girlfriend at a Eureka Poker Tour event, Pokerstars New Jersey VIP club information released and more. Faraz Jaka then joins us to talk about the typhoon that caused him to miss an interview with us a few weeks ago. We also get into his GPL team The San Francisco Rush and the strategies he had in the draft as well as insights into wild card picks and what we can expect to see coming up. Faraz is debatably the most well travelled poker pro out there so we have to talk to him about travel, meditation and just life tips in general. After Faraz we get into the Mailbag and Voicemails, a bit of 140 or less and review some hands in The Roscoe Report. Pokerstars Invitational passwords are in the show too!
Music: Charlotte Day Wilson - After All, Acid Ghost - There's No Use in Trying Anymore
