NEW PLO Launchpad training course:​ (Dylan on the show Weds to discuss)


DOUG POLK AKA THE SUPREME LEADER AKA DOUGLAS K POLK AKA DEBATABLY THE BEST HUNL PLAYER IN THE WORLD AKA THE MAN THE MYTH THE LEGEND is BACK on the Poker Life podcast today. We are talking all about the epic HU challenge vs Daniel Negreanu and how Doug came out victorious for $1,200,000. Doug has spent the last 3 months battling Daniel at a $200/$400 high stakes HU battle. Doug was the big favorite coming into the match and the pressure was on him to deliver a victory vs Daniel. The match was pretty anti-climactic in terms of who would win as Doug was the odds on favorite to win and wasn't in much danger of losing. At one point later in the match, Daniel had a massive near $400,000 victory over the course of a few hours that forced Doug to rethink his strategy. Doug came out using a limping strategy which caused Daniel to start tanking which caused a major controversy as Phil Galfond needed to step in to mediate the dispute. In the end, Doug came out with the victory in the match and in the side bets worth millions of dollars. Today we discuss more on it! NEW GTO NEWSLETTER:​ REDLINE KING MERCH (PRE-OFFICIAL RELEASE):

Guest Anthony Pompliano aka Pomp (Bitcoin | Investing | Business)

MY PODCAST HAS RETURNED!!! Sorry about taking so much time off from the podcast, have been focusing on the Daniel vs Doug event the past few months!!! Wanted to try to crush that! My podcast will be returning with a mix of poker and non-poker world people I find interesting and want to learn more about!




My guest today is Anthony Pompliano aka THE POMP. I started following him earlier this year during the LOCKDOWN when I was researching the history of money, currency and the federal reserve! Pomp is a massive BITCOIN advocate like many people in the poker world have been for quite some time - his Twitter is filled with Bitcoin related content and he has over 500k followers on that platform. He brings a nice mix of value - knowledge, humor, hype, family, positivity. Pomp also puts out a new podcast just about every single day and has turned that into one of the most popular podcast in his world. He has a wide variety of guests on from all different parts of the finance, content, investing, and business world. I'm very excited and interested to learn more about his background and how he came to be in this position that he is in now!

Guest Christian Harder || WSOP Final Table Discussion Post Day 2
On this impromptu late night podcast, me and Christian Harder discuss the action so far during the 2016 World Series of Poker Final Table. They played down from 5 to 3 players left and a winner will be decided later tonight LIVE on ESPN!! I am doing a giveaway for the release of my “High Stakes Pot Limit Omaha on Bovada Series” coming this November!!

This series will recap my last 12 months playing $5/10 and $10/20 on the wonderful poker site formerly known as Bovada.

You can enter the contest on both Twitter and Facebook by submitting your guess on how much money my graph is up in the last 12 months!! (Hint: It is somewhere between $100,000 and $300,000)

(Shout out to Doug Polk for giving me the GTO encouragement and inspiration to do something like this)

Joe McKeehen (WSOP Main Event Champion)
If you watched the World Series of Poker Main Event last year, you saw a quiet guy named Joe McKeehen crushing the final table to win the Main Event and take home 7.6 Million Dollars.  Joe has been a pretty quiet ambassador for poker outside of his large personality over on Twitter. He hasn't really done many podcasts since his victory, instead choosing to remain pretty under the radar.  That all changes tonight as me and Joe will be podcasting together at 7pm EST :D  Timestamps [10/19/2016 7:36:04 PM] Maggu5: JoeInLove: [10/19/2016 7:36:05 PM] Maggu5: 0:59 blocked on twitter? 1:49:53 twitter 9:16 life before  WSOP 2015 9:53 victory WSOP 2015 14:46 twitter romance 30:35 WSOP 2016 episodes 50:47 Marty Derbyshire / pokernews 1:04:03 Philadelphia 1:05:21 GPL 1:22:09 PLO advertisement 1:41:32 health / mind / discipline fun: 6:20 north / south slang 1:15:00 romantic shout out  1:34:20 biggest post WSOP purchase 1:38:08 fav poker player

Charlie Synder aka Chuck!
Earlier this year I drove to Akron in Ohio to play in a poker game that would be streamed on Twitch because I really wanted to see my friend Adrian Fenix. Playing in the game with us was an older gentleman named Charlie Snyder that was super smiley and really enjoyable to chat with. We all went out to eat after the game and Chuck started telling us stories from his adventures sports betting/life in general. Over the next couple months Chuck was really supportive of the content I was creating and took the time to send me messages at times that really helped to boost my energy levels. I got a chance to meet up with him and his daughter while in Vegas for the WSOP and that was one of my favorite moments of the summer. I've been telling him that I wanted to get him on my podcast and finally tonight we are going to make it happen. It should be a really fun conversation that is different than most of my podcasts and I look forward to some fun stories :D Timestamps 0:46 –> EASTERN EUROPEAN CHESS FEDERATION - Advertisement

David Williams (Masterchef & Poker)
David Williams is my guest on this episode. David recently finished in the top 3 on the reality television show Masterchef. Masterchef is a cooking competition that airs on Fox. He is also known in the poker world for finishing 2nd in the 2004 WSOP Main Event to Greg Raymer. He has also been sponsored my Bodog and Pokerstars over the years. I really enjoyed this episode because David is a sick GTO storyteller. It wasn't quite the back and forth that I like to have during these podcasts but I didn't mind.  Stories include going on a near million dollar swing playing PLO in Bobbys room (49:31), allegations made that he let Harrington play on his Pokerstars account (1:26:21), meeting Viffer (41:09), having his Audi stolen (2:12:02) and more. Some very good wisdom and insight is discussed.  I cut out some of the best of clips and uploaded them on my YouTube for people who don't want to listen to the entire thing.  TIMESTAMPS*** TIMESTAMPS 0:46 introduction 1:47 Masterchef TV show 12:01 hater / trolls interactions 59:13 hater / trolls interactions 14:41 rigged shopping baskets 17:04 Masterchef GTO 38:02 parenting 43:55 WSOP 2016 49:31 nosebleeds PLO story (0.5/1k) 55:53 Antonio Esfandiari 1:01:07 single father life 1:03:58 Rosters – DFS startup 1:13:29 basketball 1:21:23 Doug Polk / Ben86 incident 1:26:21 PCA online mixed games incident 1:36:34 online poker (in the US) 1:41:37 divorce 1:44:44 alleged porn career 1:50:37 nTOS substances 1:59:46 future book / movie unknown story 2:02:27 Magic disqualification 2:28:13 future TV career 2:42:43 poker sponsorships 2:37:59 beard / hair GTO 2:40:42 reality – simulation 2:42:47 spacecamp travelling 2:48:03 podcast history / GTO 2:56:43 WSOP runner up 2004 3:00:19 PLO MTTs aha: 33:26 fear of failure 36:02 do it for yourself (not for the haters) 45:49 live in the moment 54:46 chasing high scores / losses 1:42:20 happiness – change 2:26:25 taking responsibilities  fun: 39:42 uninstallation of the stripper pole 41:09 first meet up with VIFFER (SMD) 1:54:46 drugged story 2:12:02 stolen A7 story 2:45:11 drake double

This episode starts off a bit slow as I wine and dine Justin to make him feel a bit more comfortable. He is one of the fellow 10/20 PLO regs on Bovada so I actually get to have a discussion about those games for a bit of time.

Dan Colman
Dan Colman aka mrGR33N13 is a long time online player who specializes in Heads-UP Sit'N'Gos in the hyper, turbo and regular speed format online. He is also known for winning the Big One for One Drop in 2014 for 15.3mm USD (not bad). In this episode we talk about the degenerate route he took to becoming a high stakes regular, his love for punishment, why he hasn't been playing much poker in the past year, and much more. I think that many peoples opinion on Dan has changed after watching this episode and it is a really good look into his mindset. If you read these descriptions and they factor in on your decision to watch the episode or continue to watch when you feel a lull in action and say "okay fuck this, NEXT" as your ADHD kicks in and the Onto The Next one culture of the new millenniumkicks in please let me know so that I am more inclined to include these type of forewords (no idea if this is proper usage) in future episode description boxes. If you read this and you thought, "I got no interest in listening to what these people have to say" then also please let me know by using the comment box, on twitter or on stalkbook. I would like to now name this episode, I will name it, A Look Into the Mind of a Man who has Every option at his disposal but is undecided where to head next (With random words of the title capitalized). Thank you, much love, and God Bless! That description was meant for YouTube only but I felt inclined to include to all the papis and fuckbois and stalkers who watch these on ITUNES. I got this one up in less than 24 hours!!!! We are turning a new leaf on the amount of turnover on getting these up here. I know how fucking annoying it is to listen to these on YouTube when you are on an iPhone. Shout out to you and shout out to me.

I would prefer to have more female 3 ways in podcast form. Maybe I need to go set those up instead.  Does anyone read these things?  If you vote for more female 3 ways please let me know on Twitter @joeingram1

I met her during the summer in Vegas and I thought she would be great to have on. We spend the first part talking about her past as a professional surfer, living in Costa Rica and more. I think she has a pretty cool backstory that we don't get to hear much about as she has never been a poker player. We spend a bunch of time talking about her company, how/why she decided to start it, the challenges of it and all things pertaining to it. Hope you guys enjoy this description that I decided would be GTO to write :)

Antonio Esfandiari
If you are listening to this podcast you probably know who Antonio is. I think he is one of the most popular poker players in the world right now and has been around for years. I join him at his condo in Las Vegas for a shorter than usual episode where we discuss the comments Lex/Raszi made on my podcast back in January, him starting to talk poker seriously, and more!

Igor Kurganov
Igor was one of the most fascinating people that I met during WSOP 2015 and I really wanted to have him on the podcast. I'm not sure on the GTO way to describe who he is in one sentence. He plays high stakes MTTs, is involved with the REG charity, basically he is a life boss in and out of poker. I went over to the penthouse he was renting during the world series and we recorded this one together in person while drinking wine.

Adam Altwies (Aria Poker) and Steven Mcloughlin aka TT
I have on Adam Altwies who is in charge (the end boss) of the Aria Poker room in Las Vegas and Steven Mcloughlin aka TT over on TwoPlusTwo. I met these guys at the American Poker conference earlier this year and had a chance to hear Adam talk on one of the panels and thought he was great and talked some strategy without really giving away secrets to why they have had so much success. I talked with them after the panel and found out Adam was a big fan of the podcast. Steven has been active on the TwoPlusTwo forums for years as TT, playing poker himself and also very active on the business side of the poker world. He currently works with PokerTracker.  I thought this episode was a great look at how two guys very involved in poker but on the other side of things handle themselves in a discussion. Much more professional and polished then we are used to here. You will see that I am surprised at just how straight edged they were in this discussion but that is to be expected. My conversations with them outside of the podcast tend to be very different in nature :) Enjoy!
