Pokercast 432 - It's Bad for Poker!
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - On this episode of the Pokercast: We’ve got an opposing opinion on the table talk issue from a guy who’s always got an opinion, Shaun Deeb. First off Adam talks about being tilted by the Stern show before we jump into the news. This Week: The GPL has partnered up with Pokerstars to make poker great again, we chat about what both sides could get out of this deal. Pokerstars NJ is set to have a championship series, Max Silver brings up an ugly collusion scenario from a super high roller and then Adam talks about an interesting hand from the Main Event broadcast involving the man of the month, William Kassouf. We then get Shaun Deeb on the line to talk about a tweet he made the other week saying that this incessant table talk is terrible for poker and Terrence and Adam get him to explain why he feels this way. After a break we get into the Mail! This week we’ve got a question about swapping pieces, an e-mail from Indonesia, another weight cutting question for T, plus a voicemail about the value of coaching.
