    The Lock-In 87 - Neil Channing

    This week David and Dara are locked in with 2008 Irish open champion and now podcaster Neil Channing whose new show ‘Bet The House’ launched less than a fortnight ago. They talk to Neil about the overlap between politics and betting, get some tips on the upcoming UK and US elections and speak about podcasts more generally.

    Before that, Dara and David cast their eyes over some recent stories, including Antonio Galiana’s crazy week as he bluffs his way to a WSOP bracelet before getting embroiled in a cheating scandal. There is also some discussion on the idea of a poker black list after poker cheater Ali Imsirovic appears in Vegas and in the wake of Men ‘The Master’ Nguyen seemingly pulling back chips in a big 3-way pot deep in a bracelet event.

    Dara and David point to Daniel Hachem’s runner-up finish at the WSOP and talk about the idea of poker being passed on within families. Finally, there are some shout-outs for Irishman Michael Dwyer’s recent $1.3M win and the upcoming EDGE poker expo in Dublin!

    The Lock-In - Malta Poker Festival Spring 2024

    The Lock-In - Malta Poker Festival Spring 2024

    This week, we are partly on location at the Malta Poker Festival and partly back at our desks.

    After firing ‘a sea of bullets’ into various events at the MPF - Spring Edition, we look back on what was a brilliantly run event helmed by the inimitable Ivonne Montealegre.

    Our guest Franke von Zweigbergk big-timed us so we did our best to plug the upcoming UNIBET sponsored Festival Series stops in Rozvadov, Malta and Bratislava without him.

    We also discuss a WSOP rule about texting at the table, ACR’s decision to sit out some poker bots midway through The Venom, Dominik Nitsche’s phenomenal victory in that tournament and the recent Irish Poker Tour Monster event.

    Before signing off, we remind everyone about the 2nd CHIP RACE SERIES being held on Unibet Poker this week, boasting a €200,000 guarantee and almost €10K in added prizes!

My favorite poker podcast

World poker news and interviews from two of the most thoughtful minds in poker (and Ian Simpson). I came for the Dara O'Kearney but stayed for the David Lappin. Host Lappin moves things along at a brisk pace, dipping into strat and controversies with O'Kearney and others. When new episodes drop, this moves to the head of the list.
