This Week in Poker Podcasts: January 22, 2013 This Week in Poker Podcasts: January 22, 2013

This week we have added two more shows to the Poker Podcast Directory. Both are long running poker podcasts that have a strong loyal following. Please join us in welcoming them by checking out their shows and letting them know what you think.

The Top Pair Poker Podcast is a show that focuses on home-game poker. So many of us started playing at home and whether you host or attend a home game, you will find this show entertaining and informative. Co-hosts Brue Briggs and Eric Nelson have amassed a series of shows that will likely address any question or concern you have about home games. If you have encountered a challenging situation or just have an interesting story to tell,, shoot them an email and you may find your topic or story being covered on a future episode.

This week’s episode starts with the news of a man being sentenced to 60 years in prison for robbing a home game. Then the discussion shifts to an in-depth look at multi-action poker and how to pull it off at your home game. There are some great tips on how to make it go smoothly and hints about things you may want to avoid.
