James "Splitsuit" Sweeney enjoys one of Merv's most memorable introductions and provides expert cash game commentary on a hand from his live workbook (33:05).

After co-authoring the final tables workbook with James, Ben announces he is joining the Red Chip Poker Team.

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 42 - Notetaking

Mike concludes the mobility scooter story from last episode, whilst Ben bangs on about the release of his new book available here and Merv laments the loss of online poker in Austraya.

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 41 - To Barrel or Not To Barrel?

Episode 41 is a barrel of laughs, as the trusty trio tackle a prickly PPP Poser.

The strat-chat (23:21) features a low stakes cash game in which Mike is caught red-handed.

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 40 - Tells

Merv has touched down in Sydney, jet-lagged, sleep-deprived and hungover from the WSOP parties, yet Episode 40 must be hosted and Captain Harvey does not disappoint.

Together, we take on a triple-barrel poser and reveal a tell from the Main Event champion himself, Scott Blumstein, in a final table hand.

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 39 - Bet Sizing

Less than 24 hours after finishing 3rd in the final event at the WSOP, highroller Matt Berkey joins Merv, Mike and Ben for episode 39. The PPP Poser this week is centred on bet sizing and the featured hand comes from Ben's forthcoming workbook (42:09).

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 37 - Huge Laydowns

Experience the WSOP vicariously via Merv "The Verve" in Vegas. Our regular feature, the PPP Poser (12:32) is centred around the theme of huge (or as Mike says, "yuge") laydowns. The strat-chat (28:49) involves a hand from the 2016 WSOP Main Event showcasing James Obst making a tremendous laydown. No takers so far to buy a piece of Merv's action for this year's event - for any bargain-hunters (cough, splutter) he's going as low as 0.8 (and you can probably ...

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 33 - Weak Draws

The triumphant trio return to discuss the final chapter of the book - weak draws. Although it's a flop you're often going to give up on pretty fast, the stratchat covers a couple of examples of situations, where you might choose to progress to the turn and river. Merv is on hand to announce the competition winners, but neglects to hand out a medal to the industrious, deserving, but ultimately empty-handed Mike and Ben.

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 30 ft Shurane Vijayaram

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 29 - High Card - 1 or 0 overcards

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 28 - High Card - 2 Overcards

Australian Captain Harvey is aboard the ship as a new triumvirate is formed. Tune in to find out whether he's able to tame the 2 authors, who did not make it easy for "Big Merv" with an early cry of "sack the captain".

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 27 - Paired Board / No overcards

Join us for the final skipperless episode as the duo prepare for a future under the command of a new Captain, Merv.

Postflop Poker Podcast - Episode 25 - 2 Overcards/Paired Board

Splash! Mutiny! Tune in for more of Turner & Hayles, as the skipperless duo deliver one of the most ridiculous shows in PPP history. These two are showing signs of getting out of control with no-one steering the ship...but is unshackling them a good thing? Decide for yourself...

Postflop Poker Podcast Episode 23 - Middle Pair

Join the crew once again to learn about some expansive play with middle pair and indeed Ben's own expanding middle (Twitter pictures for the brave of heart). Captain Quayle labels "Maniac" Mike Turner a "psychopath" and after coining the slightly paradoxical phrase "value check", Mike reveals a deep dark secret of his own...#mancrush
