Captain Harvey hands out his first Merv Medal, as the new triumvirate discuss the weakest of all flops. As usual, they traverse plenty of terrain, from phallic snow sculptures to the UK venues for the infamous "Battyman Challenge". 3 hands are discussed, including a live hand between Raul Mestre and Vicky Coren and Merv lays down plans for a special Episode 30 next month.
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". There's discussion over the future of poker in Australia, 3 hands of stratchat and just a smithering of cricket (that's an insect, yes, Mike).
Join us for the final skipperless episode as the duo prepare for a future under the command of a new Captain, Merv. This episode features a hand in which Mike takes great pleasure in taking some of Ben's chips in a classic pre-podcast homegame hand. There's also analysis from a famous live hand, as well as a cash hand.
Seasons greetings from the PPP team. The 2 authors join forces again to discuss another missed flop type. After a slightly wayward episode, we're back on form! Mike reverts to his natural accent and apart from being outkicked by a scorpion, Ben manages to keep everything nicely under control. Merry Christmas everyone, have a Quayle of a time!
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...
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
oin the team for our latest episode, as Captain Quayle steers the ship and the team discuss TPWK. Congratulations to Mike on his book release this week. Check it out here: http://bookgoodies.com/a/B01M9BUQZZ
In this episode we are joined by Tim 'On The Stoop' Reisner, who Ben develops a bit of a man-crush for as we talk top pair strong kicker.
In this milestone episode, the big 2 0, we discuss the hand that is sure to bust more people than an 80’s cop movie. We are of course talking about flopping top pair top kicker - or TPTK as the young internet kids like to say these days.
In this episode we talk flopping top pair on a paired board. We change things up a bit as we review a cash game hand as part of our #stratchat. As always lots of talking points for Ben, Mike & Scott to discuss.
We are joined by our new regular host Mike "ManiacMike2" Turner to discuss how to play the very tricky and always challenging flop of bottom 2 pair. We look at two hands in detail, the first from the small blind and the second a heads up hand in position.
Ben takes the reins today and is joined by Mike Turner, author of 'Crushing Low Stakes Poker' and owner of the site www.kickstartpoker.com. Together the boys tackle the often interesting situation of flopping top and bottom pair.
We are back! Finally... It's been a while, but we dust off the microphones to tackle flopping top 2 pair. We are joined by Steve Barton, host of the Heads Up Poker Podcast and delve deep into a couple of interesting hands.
We are joined by Richard's special guest Dr Tricia Cardner and talk the mental game for part-time and recreational players. We also run through two hands where we flop trips on board, that seem straight forward at first but on review are somewhat complex!
Today's lesson is all about the number '3' as we talk flopping trips! The 3 amigos (or perhaps the 3 stooges) are back together as Richard joins us for this episode and we run through a couple of very different hands with plenty of talking points.
Richard is MIA so it's time for Scott to step up and talk strategy with Ben. We cover two hands where we flop a straight. The first is extremely deep stacked, which affects the optimal line, and the second presents a river decision that may be controversial!
Scott lands his special guest as Killingbird from Tournament Poker Edge joins us for the show. We run through two hands where hero flops a flush and have some healthy debate about the best line to take!
In this episode we go back to our roots with just the 3 of us talking hands. We look at 2 hands where Ben flops the world, firstly quads, then a full house. We also bring you a bonus cash game hand from Scott after a recent visit to the casino.
Richard's all time poker hero, and multiple WPT title winner Jonathan Little joins us in this episode as we look at how to play medium pocket pairs that face a couple of overcards on the flop.
WSOP Main Event champion Greg 'Fossilman' Raymer joins us for episode 8 as we explore a couple of very tricky spots, including a much talked about hand from the Pokerstars Sunday Million. In both hands we hold a medium pocket pair preflop that is 2nd pair after the flop.
