The Lock-In - Isaac Haxton

Full Episode Description
This week, poker legend Isaac Haxton is locked in and working out the chances of a player losing 13 heads-ups in a row. Ike joins David and Dara for a wide-ranging conversation encompassing everything from scams to vaccines to prop bets. The chat begins with the scamming allegation made by Dan Colman last week before moving to Hellmuth’s ‘hilarious’ victory over Daniel Negreanu which makes it a staggering 13 consecutive losses for ‘The Kid Poker’. There is discussion of the vaccine rollouts in the US, Europe and in the rest of the world and its implication for poker and specifically the scheduled WSOP. Then there's a conversation on Bitcoin mining and its energy implications. The lads take a look at the motion being put forward by Pokernews for their upcoming debate, namely 'Do Ambassadors Have Moral Responsibility When Representing Unregulated Sites'. There is some talk and banter on the proposed Jason Koon sprinting prop bet. The episode rounds out with Dara's strategy nugget on check-raising backdoors and why you might be doing it too frequently!
