I enjoy the banter.
Scott really needs to reduce saying “ummmmm,” “uhhhhhh” and other filler words as I simply cannot listen to this anymore, and I love poker. I realize you haven’t been trained in this field, but silent pauses are okay. There doesn’t need to be a constant stream of noise coming out. There aren’t many poker podcasts out there and you could become the most dominant one in a big way if you polish this up. Best of luck to you.
Breakdowns are suspect
I really enjoyed the speakers but the hand breakdown at the end of big pot big mistake was a mess. Neither commentator made much sense when discussing a turn decision and ended up being horribly wrong about the outcome. The original speaker suggested folding an additional 140 into 500+ on a 7883 cc board... even if V had TJ we’re getting odds to call here. 88 or 99 are the only real coolers, plus there are a ton of worse hands that can shove this.
