To begin, it is the last chance to join Pokercast WSOP Fantasy league and the guys have their trips planned. We start off with some insight from Kevin on what to look forwards to this year including lower stakes events and the 25k fantasy draft. We are then joined by our friend, Run It Once coach and return guest Ryan Laplante! Ryan gives us a pros view on playing a full schedule and the events he is most excited for and some strategy.
Plus we look back on his bracelet win last year and how the field compared in a lower buy in event to a high dollar one.
