Ep 113 - The Josh Arieh Interview Episode (2021 WSOP Player Of The Year) And BBQ Talk
Welcome to episode 113! Today we are joined by old school legend Josh Arieh who just won the 2021 WSOP Player of the Year! He picked up 2 bracelets in a heroic series, beating Hellmuth and Negreanu for the title of POY. We learned about his gambling background, going busto, getting rich, and going busto time after time, how his mental state effects his poker approach, old gambling stories, his 3rd place finish in the 2004 Main Event, and much more. Before he hops on the line we talk about BBQ. Because obviously. Thanks for listening and enjoy!
Ep 112 - The Boys Go To Therapy And Then Are Joined By Professional Baseball Player And Poker Crusher Rhett Wiseman
We are thankful for each and every one of you. The episode starts with a quick therapy session about life, happiness, and what it means. After we dig deep into our souls (go to therapy, you won't be disappointed) we are joined by Rhett Wiseman, a college world series champion and 3rd round pick by the Washington Nationals who just finished 249th in the Main Event. He tells great stories about life in the minors while also crushing cash games in podunk minor league towns. There is a lot of overlap between the baseball study grind and poker study grind, and Rhett is very sharp with both. This is a very cool and thoughtful episode, please enjoy. And if you need help, seek it. No shame in that.
Ep 111 - The WSOP Main Event Break Down With Special Guest Jeff Platt
It's the day after the WSOP Main Event and we had to do a bonus episode to talk about George Holmes heroic battle and the rest of the major storylines from the Main. We are joined by the legendary Jeff Platt of PokerGo to get an inside look at all the great stories from the last week. The Dirty Diaper, the hand that was played blind, Norman Chad, and some bozo who dusted off 100bbs with 43ss. Enjoy!
Ep 110 - The Complete Jake Toole 67th Place WSOP Main Event Saga With Hand Histories, Strategy, Stories, and More
Jake is back from Vegas with a 67th place MAIN EVENT finish under his wing. He walks us through all 6 days- hand histories, mind set, strategy, stories, and more. A very cool episode inside the mind of one of the best poker players (and our hero) in the world.
Ep 109 - Nate Punted The Main Event And The Boys Let Him Have It
Day 1 of the Main is in the books and Smitty is moving on, Mintz is moving on, Jake is moving on...and Nate punted in spectacular fashion. We talk about what happened, Smitty calls Nate an a*****e 1,000 times, and Jake is mostly just disgusted by it. Enjoy!
Ep 108 - Dave Portnoy WILL Be At The WSOP
Welcome to episode 108. We start with the breaking news that the entire crew is playing the WSOP Main Event, and our fearless leader Dave Portnoy will be in the house on Sunday to "cheer" us on.

We're on our way out west for the Main, so follow us on social to follow along.
