The Scotty Clark Show, The Tournament Poker Edge and Occupy Poker: The Week in Poker Podcasts
Almost all the poker podcasts this past week have focused on the big news that PokerStars has reached an agreement with the US Department of Justice that will allow them to purchase the assets of Full Tilt Poker and Full Tilt players will finally get paid.
The magnitude of the story is so big it’s difficult to avoid the topic no matter what genre of poker podcast you enjoy. Poker Podcasters have interviewed a ton of poker personalities on this topic including Lee Jones of PokerStars, members of the poker media that have been working this story for months, celebrity poker players, Poker Player Alliance (PPA) members and players with large balances stuck on Full Tilt. And of course, the hosts themselves chime in with their opinions.
If you are up to speed on the details of the big story, or if you are just tired of hearing all the wild speculation on information that has yet to be released, there are a few poker podcasts released in the past week that can take your mind of the PokerStars/Full Tilt drama.
The Scotty Clark Show looks really good this week. If you haven’t caught an interview with Amanda Musumeci yet, this is your chance. Brian Rast also makes an appearance on the show along with Poker Room Managers Jeremy Smith and Ken Lambert.
If you are looking for your strategy fix in the midst of all the news coverage The Tournament Poker Edge Podcast has a new episode out. DannyN13 and Cougars4444 join Killingbird and RonFezBuddy to discuss a variety of topics including putting your opponent on a range of hands, when to 3bet shove and formulating calling ranges.
This past week pokerfuse welcomed a new poker podcast to the directory. Occupy Poker, hosted by Jonathan Aguiar and JC Alvarado, is unlike any other poker podcast out there. While the hosts and guests are poker players and there are plenty of poker references, the show is often driven by intellectual and political topics.
The guys do a good job at making the show portable by providing links to the topics discussed in the episodes. I also enjoy the laid-back and informal vibe that comes through while listening.
That’s all for this week. As usual, feel free to leave your own reviews, rip on mine, or suggest other poker podcasts for my listening pleasure.
