    This week, we are locked in and happy out with the newest GUKPT champion David Docherty!

    David joins us to discuss his crossbar crammed career and his appreciation of a long overdue live success. Michael Addamo's purple-patch is put under the microscope, as is Phil Hellmuth's streak of final tables and Adam Friedman extraordinary three-peat. The Poker Brat's pyro-clivities are also discussed.

    The topic switches to some recent criticisms of the WSOP as the two David's pile on while Dara offers a contrarian and altogether more positive view. The trio then discuss their last minute decisions to go out in time for the WSOP Main Event on November 8th.

    The show ends with some chat about last weekend's hugely successful Unibet IPO in Dublin were Dara and David went semi-deep in the Main Event and Dara launched his new book 'Endgame Poker Strategy'.

    The Lock-In - Barry Carter II

    This week we are locked in and selling out with Barry Carter.

    Our great friend and Dara’s co-author Barry joins us to discuss the stories of the week, including Jason Koon going to GG to help with game integrity and security, PokerPaint receiving a cease and desist letter and what’s been happening at the WSOP!

    The episode kicks off though with some hilariously shameless shilling from Dara who is so patched up these days, he’s starting to look like a racing car driver. He discusses the Cardschat Forum and describes what separates it from other poker forums.

    Then the conversation turns to Unibet Poker and a look back to the recent UOS in no which both Dara and Barry won events. Barry gives us his WSOP predictions, David defends his Gamble Online article on ‘Slowrolling’, plus there is lots of chat about ‘Endgame Poker Strategy’, the brand new ICM book that was just released on Amazon by Dara and Barry.

    Two book releases take centre stage on this week's show - Jared's 'The Mental Game of Trading' and Dara's 'Endgame Poker Strategy' - but not before the lads discuss the stories of the week.

    First up is a chat about the Unibet Online Series and Unibet Open which both concluded last weekend. David gives a run-down on the big winners and great stories that emerged from the fortnight of action.

    Next up is a segment on Jared's new course - 'The Mental Game Tune Up For Tournament Poker' with the mindset coach extraordinaire highlighting some of the key areas where players can make improvements.

    Dara's recent article for Gamble Online is then put under the microscope. In the piece entitles 'The Top 5 Tips For Boosting Your Bankroll', Dara dispenses important advise on how to study effectively and how to take advantage of free strategy material available on the internet.

    There is a quick chat about Dan 'Jungleman' Cates' joining Run It Once followed by a lengthy discussion on the PokerPaint controversy. There is then a news round-up from the world of poker, ending with a double book celebration and a surprise admission by Dara and Jared who admit to having both had their way with co-author Barry Carter. 😮

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.
